Arsenal: Fans get excited after Folarin Balogun hits hat-trick

Arsenal fans are excited about the future after Folarin Balogun scored a hat-trick for the club’s under-23 side.

Steve Bould’s side won 3-1 as they swept aside Blackburn’s under-23s, with Balogun putting on a prolific display, winning and scoring two penalties.

The young talent’s hat-trick comes just a day after Unai Emery started three Hale End academy graduates in his starting line-up against Newcastle United.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock all made starts in the game, with the latter two making their full Premier League debuts.

As part of a shake-up with the coaching staff this summer, Steve Bould moved down to the under-23 side, as Freddie Ljungberg moved up to the first-team squad.

After Balogun’s hat-trick, fans are starting to get excited over the future, and took to Twitter.

Here is a selection of tweets from Gooners following the youngster’s hat-trick on Monday:
