Arsenal starlet Gedion Zelalem has once again reminded Gunners supporters of his undoubted talent as he produced yet another brilliant performance for the youth side against their Celtic counterparts in the Durban Under-19 International Tournament on Wednesday afternoon, Metro Sport reports.
The American youngster is highly-regarded by Gunners manager Arsene Wenger, who handed the 18-year-old a first-team debut against Coventry City in an FA Cup fourth-round tie during the 2013-14 season and was impressive for his national team at the FIFA U20 World Cup earlier this summer.
Zelalem is yet to make his Premier League debut for the North London outfit as he has the likes of Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere ahead of him in the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium, however, his performance against Celtic may just give Wenger food for thought ahead of the new campaign.
The midfielder produced a stunning pass to create the opening goal for Tyrell Robinson in the first half and then embarrassed the Celtic keeper with a cheeky penalty to put the Gunners 3-2 ahead.
