Arsenal beat Blackpool 5-0 at the Emirates on Tuesday evening to win through to the FA Youth Cup final 7-2 on aggregate. Read Layth Yousif’s PLAYER RATINGS.

Arsenal:

Joao Virginia: 7 – Showed a calm presence throughout with good handling and distribution skills, even if he will have had far busier evenings

Vontae-Daley-Campbell: 7 – A good work-rate while supplementing attacks including an early cross which Balagun thudded against the woodwork

Dominic Thompson: 7 – A solid presence.

Robbie Burton: 7 – Netted the third goal as Arsenal ran riot in the first half. He should be very pleased with his overall performance

Danny Bullard: 7 – Powered home an emphatic header to put Arsenal in the driving seat. Good all-round display from the captain

Zach Medley: 7 – Owner of an excellent technique. Had a busy few weeks for the U23 and U18 side and has not been found wanting

Fol Balogun: 8 – Powerful performance early on after hitting the woodwork before putting the youngsters ahead which helped set to the tone for the evening

James Olayinka: 7 – Not as influential as he would have liked buy can still be proud of the shift he put in

Tyreece John-Jules: 7 – Never stopped working for the cause and his intelligent running on and off the ball created space for his colleagues to exploit

Emile Smith Rowe: 8: – His mazy run before he was felled in the area was worthy of a far higher stage. Scored his spot kick to make it four and is one to watch

Xavier Amechi: 8 – Two assists and an a superb first half performance means Chelsea will have to be wary of his threat in the final

Substitutes:

Matthew Smith: 7 – On for Balogun: Scored the fifth right on the whistle
