Arsenal U-18 are book place in quarters-finals of the FA Youth Cup after comfortable win over West Ham United on Sunday evening, in which starlet Omari Hutchinson scored two lovely goal.
The 17-year-old, who has been regarded as a player with much potential, continue delivered masterclass of a performances for the U18.
On Sunday, for instance, Hutchinson produced an impressive display as Arsenal U18s eased past their West Ham United counterparts with a 3-1 to book spot in quarters-finals of the FA Youth Cup.
The highly-rated forward continued his excellent recent form by scoring the opening goal in 26th minutes of the game.
Marcelo Flores turned away from pressure and set Norton-Cuffy away down the right-hand side, with the right-back delivered a square pass inside for Hutchinson, who fired it in off the post.
Shortly after the half-time break, Hutchinson was involved in a second goal. The talented teenager, who scored six goals and provided seven assist in domestic league picked the ball up on the right and cut inside before firing a deflected shot against the post, which fell to Khayon Edwards to tap in.
The 17-year-old hit the post with another effort, before winning a penalty in the 80th minute whilst running through on goal. It was a denial of a goalscoring opportunity, and therefore a red card for West Ham’s Jamal Baptiste. Hutchinson converted the spot-kick.
The Hammer’s 10 men actually scored the next goal of the game, pouncing on a mistake by Arsenal goalkeeper Ovie Ejeheri to make it 3-1. But the young Gunners continued to totally dominate the match, and Edwards was only denied a second by a great save from close range.
Hutchinson, who was impressed in Sunday’s 3-1 win over West Ham United, has been involved in 18 goal contributions for the season.
A goalscorer and a creator who is confident enough on either foot and is making a name for himself at right-wing, it’s hard not to draw comparisons to Bukayo Saka. If he continues developing as he is at the moment, he could well follow in Saka’s footsteps.
