Aarons through to ePremier League Invitational quarter-finals

8 May 2020

Max Aarons has set up a quarter-final clash with Chelsea's Emerson Palmieri in the ePremier League Invitational after overcoming Ryan Sessegnon in the last 16 on Thursday.

Aarons' match against his Chelsea counterpart will kick-off at 6pm BST and can be watched on our Twitch channel.

Aarons was hoping to go one better than teammate Todd Cantwell who exited the previous tournament at the first hurdle, and he was handed the perfect opportunity early on when last 16 opponent Sessegnon gave away a needless penalty in the opening five minutes.

Luckily for the Spurs man, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was equal to Teemu Pukki's spot kick to keep the scores level. 

However, Aarons didn't have to wait long to get the ball rolling when five minutes later, Emi Buendia crossed for Onel Hernandez to open the scoring.

Aarons continued to command the game and went further ahead before half-time with Teemu Pukki and Hernandez putting the Canaries three ahead.

Sessegnon pulled a goal back with 20 minutes to play through Harry Kane but Aarons' passage to the quarter-finals was sealed when Emi Buendia capitalised on a defensive mix-up to score and make it 4-1.
