Arsenal U21 coach Steve Gatting told arsenal.com: "He came out of it with a lot of credit. He's only 16 and that was the first game he's played for the Club at a competitive level, and what a place to make your debut! He came out of it well. He shows for the ball a lot. He's got a bit of presence on the pitch and he passed it well."
