Arsenal's horror week became even worse yesterday with the U18s being thrashed 5-1 by Bolton Wanderers.

Arsenal Under-18s endured a difficult start to the new season with a disappointing 5-1 defeat to Bolton on Saturday.

Zach Clough and Thomas Youngs scored twice for the hosts, with Elliot Newby having already netted in the first half.

Spanish midfielder Jon Toral grabbed a late consolation for Arsenal but it was in vain as the young Gunners lost comfortably in their opening fixture.
