Video: Arsenal Kid Dan Crowley Scores Great Goal For Oxford v Brighton

Arsenal youngster Dan Crowley has been tipped by many to have a big future at the club.

But he’s going to have to prove himself out on loan with Oxford United before hoping to return and break into Arsene Wenger’s first team squad.

Crowley is a 19-year-old midfielder who is yet to make his top team debut for Arsenal, but has done enough in the youth ranks to earn a big reputation.

He’ll play with Oxford in League One until the end of this season in the hope he can get the important first team football he needs at this point in his career.

And scoring brilliant goals against quality opposition will certainly help him impress Wenger and his coaching staff ahead of returning at the start of next term.

Crowley was a late substitute for Michael Appleton’s as they looked to come back from 3-1 down at home to Brighton in the EFL Cup.

He was unable to inspire them to that comeback, but did get a great goal in injury time to show his new team-mates and fans what he’s capable of:

Crowley will now be eyeing a regular spot in the Oxford starting XI as they challenge for promotion to the English Championship this season.
