Arsenal held a training session ahead of Europa League clash with Rapid Vienna On Thursday. The likes of Gabriel Magalhaes, Alexandre Lacazette, Hector Bellerin, and Mesut Ozil were put through their paces.
And there was a moment that highlighted Reiss Nelson’s trickery, as he claims himself to be the Arsenal’s nutmeg king.

Don’t worry, @ReissNelson9…

Unfortunately, wonderkid Folarin Balogun – who was on the scoresheet against Molde last week – found himself in the middle trying to retrieve the ball before a certain number of passes were completed.
Perhaps what the striker didn’t expect was to be on the receiving end of an outrageous nutmeg from a fellow Hale End graduate. Balogun appears to have shut off all passing lanes for Nelson.
Although, the Arsenal no.24 produces a moment of magic to slip the ball through Balogun’s legs with his left foot and then runs off to celebrate with a knee slide.
