Image: Confirmed Arsenal team for first official pre-season outing v Nurnberg

Arsenal are set to take on Nurnberg in the next hour in Germany, in what will be streamed through the official Arsenal app.

The Gunners did enjoy a 5-1 win over Ipswich in a behind-closed-doors friendly recently, with Eddie Nketiah celebrating his new number 14 shirt with a hat-trick, but today will be our first official outing in front of the fans as we step out on the Max-Morlon Stadion.

It will be interesting to see which youngsters will be involved today, with some earmarked for a route into the first-team in the near future, with much of the rumours circulating about Charlie Patino’s huge potential, and all eyes will certainly be on him if he features at some point.

For now though, it will be a first look at new signing Matt Turner in goal, while 17 year-old Reuell Walters also makes up a makeshift back-four, while Maitland-Niles gets another chance to try and showcase his talents to Mikel Arteta.

Which of those on the bench are you most excited to see today?

  1. Like the lineup.
    Let’s see how Turner commands the back as GK, the progression of Lokogna and AMN in midfield, and Nelson in attack.

    Be nice to see a midfield that has speed for a change.

    Hopefully full of attacking football and players expressing themselves and their creativity.

    Great opportunity to showcase AMN, Nelson, and Pepe to foster interest. Perhaps an appearance from Torreira as well?

  2. Five players have been put in the shop window in the hope that they impress any professional onlookers. Let’s hope they all do well.The game will really be little more than a training exercise but I am particularly interested in seeing Turner for the first time,particularly with Leno apparently on the brink of leaving.

    1. In nothing friendly match that no one will probably see. I doubt that is the intention of our coach. We are 2 goals down and KT substituted in 30mins of the match.

  3. Well thats one appalling starting line up. Treating it more as a shop window for sales
