?With Arsenal kicking off their new season on Sunday with a win over Newcastle, it was not the influx of new players that helped seal the all-important three points, rather it was the young guns.

In a relatively quiet game, Maitland-Niles helped produce the game's only real bit of quality.

With no new signings in the starting XI, all of Joe Willock, Ainsley Maintland-Niles and Reis Nelson started the game, while Brazilian 18-year-old Gabriel Martinelli replaced Henrikh Mkhitaryan late on.

But with Newcastle deploying three central midfielders and three central defenders, being able to get on the half-turn was difficult for Willock.

After nicking the ball back from a slow Paul Dummett pass, Maitland-Niles raced down the right before picking out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with a fine pass, for the striker to score.

The promise is very much still there, but much like Willock, playing against a packed Newcastle team will be a good experience for him.

Seeing the 18-year-old come on for Arsenal was rather exciting for the Gunners' faithful.
