Balogun fires as Arsenal U23s secure comeback win over Southampton U23s

Arsenal U23s have fought back to claim a 3-2 win over Southampton U23s in the Premier League Cup on Sunday.

Saints went ahead after just four minutes through Australian youngster Caleb Watts.

Gunners starlet Joel Ideho produced a wonderful chip to tie the scores midway through the first half, but Kazeem Olaigbe restored Southampton's lead from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time.

Folarin Balogun drew Arsenal level with his 16th strike of the season, cutting inside from the left and firing in the near post.

Substitute Mika Biereth then secured the comeback with a fabulous turn and strike with 10 minutes remaining.

The north London club remain in second in Premier League Cup Group A, but close the gap to West Bromwich Albion to four points after three matches.
