Reiss Nelson, Mesut Ozil and Bellerin React On Arsenal’s Pre-season Completion

Reiss Nelson, Mesut Ozil and Bellerin React On Arsenal’s Pre-season Completion

The perceived wisdom, therefore, is that Cech may yet preserve his place as Arsenal's starting goalkeeper when the Premier League returns next week despite the £18m addition of Leno.

"2-0 win in Stockholm and a happy end to our pre-season".

Unai Emery recently became Arsenal's manager. "They're more defensive, and not allowing goals, which is good".

The former England global is also hopeful that Emery's focus on defensive improvement will not strip Arsenal of their attacking threat. It made for an interesting encounter, with Arsenal exhibiting numerous ways of beating the press.

Maitland-Niles, who featured 15 times in the Premier League for the Gunners last season, looks set to start Arsenal's season opener against City, which is live on Sky Sports Premier League next Sunday, however, Emery is refusing to rule Monreal out just yet.

Aspiring for the league title will be too early for Emery's men but they will be looking to finish in the top four which seems to be a very realistic target.

The Arsenal boss handed debuts to new signings Lucas Torreira and Stephan Lichtsteiner, with both playing the first 60 minutes before being taken off.

But Ruben Loftus-Cheek, back with the Blues squad after a short holiday, saw his kick saved by Cech and Alex Iwobi converted for Arsenal to secure a 6-5 victory.

Lazio were having their moments though, with Senad Lulic causing problems in midfield.

As shown tonight, Nelson provides that blistering pace and quality from wide areas and Emery may well utilise the 18-year-old's talents after an impressive pre-season. Calum Chambers and Rob Holding replace Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis in the middle of defence.

Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka also signed new deals this year, but Aaron Ramsey's future remains in doubt as the Welshman has so far refused to accept an offer from the Gunners as he enters the final year of his deal.
