Gideon Zelalem makes Arsenal bench just days after receiving GCSE results

Arsenal sensation Gideon Zelalem celebrated receiving his GCSE results with a place on the bench for yesterday's win at Fulham.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger opted against bringing the central midfielder on during Arsenal's 3-1 victory.

If Zelalem, who was born on January 26, 1997, features for Arsenal before mid-December, he will become the club's youngest ever player.

The current record holder is Jack Wilshere, who made his debut at 16 years and 329 days against Blackburn in September 2008.
