He has already picked up four goals and four assists for both the Under 18s and 21s so far this season.

The teenager was then left out of the U21s draw with Wolves on Saturday as he was told he would be training with the first team ahead of their trip across London.

Nwaneri will most likely not feature off the bench, but the decision to include the youngster shows great recognition of his progress in the last 12 months.

If Nwaneri was come off the bench, he would become the youngest player to play in the history of the Premier League. Liverpool star Harvey Elliott is currently the youngest at the age of 16 years and 30 days when he was at Fulham.

Cesc Fabregas holds the all-time Arsenal record at the age of 16 years and 177 days when he played in a League Cup match against Rotherham in 2003.

His chance comes as Arsenal are without key players, including captain Martin Odegaard and left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko for the trip to west London.

Arsenal can climb back to the top of the Premier League with a win at Brentford, having seen Manchester City and Tottenham move ahead of them after both securing wins yesterday.
