The Capital One cup is here again. A necessary break was needed from the rigors of the champions league and thee premier league. The Capital One Cup always has mixed emotions for the arsenal fans. We have seen great displays from the team’s youngsters to embarrassing defeats most recently the penalty loss to League one’s Bradford. However, the competition is one that Arsenal has a realistic chance to win, and starting with a third round fixture against Premier League campaigners, West Brom, the gooners have to start firing from all cylinders from the first minute.

With the long injury list at the club, Wenger has continually used the same set of players repeatedly and their fatigue showed at the tail end of the game against Stoke City. It is imperative that the Boss rotates his squad for the cup game, and give game time to returnees like Mikel Arteta, Thomas Vermaelen and Nichklas Bendtner. However, we could see some youngsters from Steve Gattling’s U-21 side make the starting eleven. Let’s take a close look at some of the candidates:

Description: C:\Users\SAMUEL\Downloads\zelalem-indonesia.jpgD.O.B: January 26, 1997 (16yrs)

Position: midfielder

Ethiopian father, American mother, born  in Germany, the 16 yr old is as versatile on the pitch as he is with his family background. Arrived in North London in January 2013, and has not looked back since then. In the short time, has played a good number of U-21 games, travelled with the team for the tour of Asia and has made a huge promotion to the first team. For a teenager nick named the ‘little Fabregas’, he can only get better.

1.       SERGE GNABRY

D.O.B: July 14, 1995 (18 years)

Position: winger/striker

Description: C:\Users\SAMUEL\Downloads\Serge-Gnabry.jpgCame from Hertha Berlin in July 2012 and didn’t take time to make an impression on Wenger; getting his premier league debut few months later in the game against West Ham. Fleet footed, good dribbling skills and a good eye for goal, the German has all the qualities to have a great footballing career. Got his first premier league start against Stoke a couple of days back and didn’t disappoint. Come on young goner……

1.       RYO MIYIACHI

D.O. B: December 14, 1992 (20 yrs.)

Position: winger/striker

Description: C:\Users\SAMUEL\Downloads\zp_32_Ryo-1_2330.jpgLike every Japanese winger, this young chap is very fast on the ball, good dribbling skills and not afraid to take on the opponent. Once described by Roberto Martinez as a star in the making, the Japanese has a bright future ahead of him. Arrived from Nagoya Gampus (Wenger’s former Club) in the winter of 2011 and had an impressive loan spell at Wigan albeit cut short by a knee injury; has been capped by the Japanese senior team. This youngster from the land of the Rising Sun has all the qualities to hit stardom.

1.       HECTOR BELLERIN

D.O.B: march 19, 1995 (18 years)

Position: right Back/wing back

Arrived from the famous ‘la mastia’ academy in Barcelona alongside Jon Toral in the summer of 2012. The teenager is a very efficient right back in the mold of Dani Alves, contributes a good number of goals like the Brazilian . The right back is held in high regard by the academy staff and his one starlet to watch out for.

1.       CHUBA AKPOM

D.O.B: October 1995 (17 years)

Position: striker

The almost 18 year striker is no stranger to the Arsenal first team. The England youth international had an impressive pre-season tour of Asia and was rightly given his premier league debut in the game against Sunderland. The Nigerian born striker might still have a lot of work to do before attaining world class status, but the future is bright.

1.       THOMAS EISFIELD

D.OB: January 18, 1993 (20 years)

Position: midfielder

My personal favorite, the Borussia Dortmund import is one of the most technically gifted players in the arsenal youth team setup. Has the ability to play across the midfield and reminds many gooners of a young Tomas Rosicky. The young German is not new to the senior team as he had a great substitute appearance in Arsenal epic 7-5 victory over Reading in the Capital One cup of last season.

1.       DANIEL CROWLEY

Description: C:\Users\SAMUEL\Downloads\175057034.jpgD.O.B: August 3, 1997 (16yrs)

Position: Attacking midfielder

One of the most talented youngsters in England. Arsenal pulled a master coup in signing him from Aston Villa in the summer. Made his debut in the Aston Villa U-16 team at the tender age of 12; and at 15, was already a key member of both the U-18 and U-21 of the side. A typical ‘No 10’, great eye for goal and for his age, is the best passer of the ball I have seen. Tagged ‘the new Wilshere’, Daniel could be   the No 10 England have been looking for.
