Reiss Nelson happy to wait behind Arsenal stars

Reiss Nelson is happy to remain patient behind Arsenal's star forwards.

The teenager, who spent last season on loan at Hoffenheim, started in Sunday's 1-0 win over Newcastle United.

Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette are likely to start ahead of Nelson from now on, but the England U21 international won't be deterred.

"We have Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette," Nelson said.

"They are great stars and I'm still only young so I need to sit back and when I get my chance take it."
