Arsenal take on Fulham in the FA Youth Cup
Arsenal’s Under-18s take on Fulham in the fourth Round of The FA Youth Cup at Underhill on Tuesday 29 January.
Tickets to see the next generation of Arsenal and Fulham stars go head to head pick a ticket up on the night for just £1 for Concessions and £3 for Adults.
The Gunners last won the FA Youth Cup in 2009 with the likes of Jack Wilshere and Francis Coquelin, who have both progressed to the first-team, in the side.
The previous round saw the Gunners put Newcastle United to the sword with Anthony Jeffrey, Hector Bellerin and Chuba Akpom scoring in a 3-0 win.
Akpom, 17, has impressed throughout the season and was named on the bench for Arsenal’s tie against Olympiacos in the UEFA Champions League.
Speaking ahead of the fourth round tie with Fulham Akpom revealed his excitement before praising the atmosphere provided at Underhill.
“We are really excited because we grew up playing against Fulham and we know a few of their players, they are very good team with talented individuals so it should be a good game.
“I think the supporters at Underhill are really good to us, Barnet is like home now because we have played there for a while and I think that will give us an edge.
Arsenal were knocked out of the cup in the third round last season by Derby County and the forward is keen to avoid a similar disappointment this season.
“We want to go all the way this season because it was terrible last season against Derby County.
“It was good to get past the first game against Newcastle but now we want to emulate the success of Jack Wilshere’s team in 2009 and I think we are good enough to do that.”
Kick-off is at 7pm and please note that the Players' Lounge and Bacon Butty Hut will both be open.
