Heartwarming story at the Emirates yesterday as Arsenal's Hector Bellerin lined up against Watford's Marc Navarro.

They've played football with each other since the very early days playing 1v1 at Bellerin's Grandmothers house in Spain aged 8 years old - today they played against each other in the English Premier League.

Pretty cool.

The Chelsea situation you spoke about is one me and mates have barked about for a while now, they have a sort of magic circle down there for churning out massively superior cup teams and the English players they have been harvesting are starting to shine. Chalobah never really took off, Ake is playing top flight football regularly and the raft of winners they have floating about all over the divisions is scary. RLCheek looks like a powerful lad and seems to glide about the place with grace. No surprise a few of their gems are up at Pride Park now that Lampard is there.
Interesting that Southgate has cast net wider and pulled in Mason Mount, who I was alluding too a few weeks back.

Interesting in fact that it is simply interesting. I have no wider conspiracy that there is a lack of English midfield talent in the Premier League, or that other perhaps older more experienced players are being overlooked in place of a younger player.

Personally, I can only assume that Southgate is looking to blood players that have barely a fist full of senior appearances in the league as opposed to looking for someone that can jump straight into a international team and deliver.

Dunky’s in! So proud, he’s been at Brighton since he was 10.
