Arsenal fans are raving about the ability of Hale End academy graduate Reiss Nelson after a video of the 19-year-old’s control was tweeted by the club.

The England youth international started the side’s first Premier League game of the season as they ran out 1-0 winners against Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United.
Arsenal host Burnley in their first home game of the new Premier League season. And with Mesut Ozil reportedly set for more games on the sidelines, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan not impressing against Newcastle (highlighted by the Daily Express), Nelson could get another start under his belt.
Fans are getting excited by the youngster’s talent and took to Twitter to tweet their thoughts.
Here is a selection of tweets from the North London faithful:
Hale End is the best academy in the UK, no debate required

He’s shown great things since the pre-season but still needs time. He’ll grow a lot this season

They way he cushions and controls the ball.
