⚽ 18' Nelson
⚽ 64' Aubameyang
✅ THAT'S IT! A good Arsenal performance in Sweden, with plenty of positives for Emery ahead of the Premier League start.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a nightmare to defend against:
Watch Auba goal if you haven't yet, what a strike:
The Gunners are in full control now:
Masterclass from the boss so far:
More changes from Emery, will all the big boys on the pitch now:
... and it pays back, too. GOAL, AUBA:
Our attack is on fire:
Looks like someone might have booked himself a place in Arsenal squad:
Lichtsteiner is showing some Dark Arts he was (supposedly) signed for:
Auba is on the left, not his best position to play...
We are back for the 2nd half and here are the first changes:
Enjoy Nelson's goal courtesy of Arsenal official account:
FIRST HALF OUTCOMES:? Nelson and Iwobi look lively in attack? Arsenal look a bit dodgy in defence, still allowing opponents to create a lot of danger in front of their own goal? Rob Holding is showing some resolute defending, though
⚡ It's HALF-TIME!
Fine work from Maitland-Niles also doesn't go unnoticed. Will he replace Kolasinac permanently?
Some danger on the other side of the pitch, but Rob Holding got it covered!
At least now we have asolid plan if that Dembele transfer won't go through:
GOAL! And it's Reiss Nelson! The kids are alright! Nelson starts the move, Iwobi gets a shot, but it goes off the post only to be scored by the Nelson himself!
Proper 4-4-2 it is from the Gunners:
First chance of the game! Nketiah flicks the ball on before controlling it with his chest. He fires Gunners' first shot in the game from just inside the penalty area, but it goes wide.
Friendly reminder that our captain tonight is Granit Xhaka:
Some not-so-good news has been revealed as the game started:
READY, STEADY, GO!
The scene is set for the kick-off:
Seems like Gunners simply can't wait for some Proper English Football:
