Arsenal started with a completely different side than the one the faced Chelsea. with Leno, Lichtsteiner, Chambers, Holding, Maitland-Niles, Nelson, Xhaka, Torreira, Iwobi, Lacazette and Nketiah starting the game.
It looked like a second string with our returning World Cup stars like Alex Iwobi, Torreira and Lichtsteiner, but the rest were lots of youngsters dying to impress Emery.
Arsenal completely dominated the first 20 minutes and looked like scoring many times, but Caceido missed a sitter for Lazio and straight away it was up the other end. Iwobi smashed in a cross that beats Proto before crashing off the foot of the post and landing at the feet of Nelson, who taps into the empty net from close range. 1-0 to the Arsenal!
Lazio tried very hard to get an equalizer for the next ten mins but Arsenal were equal to it and then took control again until half-time and I have to say Iwobi is looking like one of the best on the pitch.
Guendouzi and Aubameyang replaced Nelson and Nketiah after the break, and the Gunners went straight back on the attack. When Emery made loads more changes we thought it would be a boring end, but Aubameyang and Lacazette combined to make it two.
Lazio then made loads of changes and it limped to the end although Arsenal were by far the fitter and stronger team
Onwards and Upwards!
