Nelson, Willock, Cedric, Smith-Rowe and Saliba all included in heavily experienced Arsenal youth game

Experienced youth

Liverpool, meanwhile, have seen significant success with the sale of a young talent recently. Rhian Brewster joined Sheffield United for 23.5 million, despite having never played ...
