This was Arsenal’s fist serious pre-season game with all lot of our first choice players taking to the field for the first time after the summer break, and a very good work-out it was indeed.
It looked like Emery started with the very best team available to him at the moment, and the official team was…..
It was no surprise that there was much sloppy play considering that both sides were decidedly un-matchfit after the summer on the beach, but the Gunners certainly seemed to have much more control of the game, and although the opening goal just after the break was a lucky deflection from a speculative shot by Aubameyang, it was definitely a deserved lead.
It was that man Lewandowski who finally put Bayern back in the game with a well-drilled header with 20 minutes to go, and despite many close misses we finally put the game to bed with a scrappy goal from Eddie Nketiah, who seems to be making a habit of scoring late goals. We definitely want to see much more of him this coming season.
Anyway, hee you can watch a very good highlights video of the game and make up your own mind about who played well or not…
