Tottenham Under-21s overcame a spirited Arsenal youth team as a double from Jack Munns helped ensure that the home side ran out 4-2 victors, meaning that they retain their place at the top of the Elite Group in the Under-21 Premier League.

The win extends their impressive record in the second phase of the league as they remain unbeaten after six fixtures, having have won five and drawn one.

Munns was the star man in this tie as the 19-year-old midfielder not only scored two, but played a part in both of their other goals.

Arsenal opened the scoring as, after dominating early proceedings, Chuba Akpom opened the scoring with a cool, curled finish after impressive interplay from the Gunners.

Former Manchester United left-back Zeki Fryers equalised from Munns' cross, before Ignasi Miquel, a relatively senior member of this youth squad, brought Munns down, leaving Laste Dombaxe to convert past another older head - Lukasz Fabianski - to put Spurs 2-1 ahead.

Munns extended the lead soon after the break with a tap-in from a Kenny McEvoy cross, before Akpom, a promising 17-year-old striker, scored his second of the match to give the away side some hope at 3-2.

However, after Munns tapped home a rebound from a Fabianski save in the dying minutes of the contest, the spoils were taken by the home side in what was a thrilling affair.
