Watch: On-Loan Arsenal Teenager Close To Scoring Goal Of The Season After Ludicrous Run

During a season in which Arsenal fans have, once more, found themselves crying out for a genuine world class striker, one of their potential future stars had been plugging away nicely in the youth ranks.

18-year-old Stephy Mavididi (yes indeedy) had scored eight goals in 14 games for both the Gunners' under-18s and under-23s this season, including a crucial goal away to Spurs 23s back in November, and two at home to PSG in the UEFA Youth League.

The Derby-born attacker joined League One Charlton on loan in January and has reportedly been terrorising defenders in his four appearances for the Addicks to date, with three of them coming from the bench.


During their 3-3 draw at Rochdale yesterday, however, he almost went nuclear. Mavididi picked the ball up inside his own box and took off like the hammers of hell, beating five defenders as he zig-zagged to the edge of the opposition box in less than 10 seconds.

We can probably put the finish down to inexperience, but the run was quite extraordinary.

Mavididi's run and shot did ultimately lead to Charlton's second goal, however, and we'll surely be seeing more of the Arsenal teenager in Charlton's first team in the weeks and months to come.
