Arsenal youngster Marcelo Flores will be in the the first team for tonight’s English Premier League game with Crystal Palace, according to his father Ruben Flores.
Arsenal will take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park tonight as they continue their push for UEFA Champions League football.
Flores, whose exploits at youth level have already seen him earn his first senior cap for the Mexico side, has trained with the Arsenal first team before but this is the first sign of him being involved in a travelling match day squad.
Ruben Flores posted on social media:
