Arsenal finally won the Emirates Cup once again for the first time since 2010 following a 1-0 victory against Wolfsburg in what was a subdued affair compared to Saturday’s encounter against Lyon.
Overall, Arsene Wenger will take a lot from the weekend’s action and will no doubt be optimistic ahead of the new campaign.
Arsenal transfer news
Here are our three talking points from the last two games.
3) We have a sensational squad
- [Match Highlights] Arsenal 1-0 Newcastle – All The Highlights & Best Bits
- [Player Ratings] Arsenal 1-0 Newcastle – Ozil Wonder Goal Saves Boring, Boring Arsenal
- [Confirmed Lineups] Arsenal v Newcastle United – Wilshere & Lacazette Start In 4-2-3-1
Arsene Wenger effectively named two teams against Lyon and Wolfsburg respectively, with only Mesut Ozil starting both games. We scored seven goals, conceded none and put in impressive performances against the runners-up of the Bundesliga and Ligue 1.
All of this without the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Danny Welbeck and David Ospina.
It reaffirms the manager’s belief in the squad and in terms of potential arrivals; unless a player of true quality becomes available, how else can we strengthen our squad?
