BRENTFORD BEAT ARSENAL 3-2 AT EMIRATES STADIUM IN FRIENDLY MATCH

Published

on

This was the Gunners’ final friendly ahead of their Premier League restart at the Etihad Stadium on June 17th.

Mikel Arteta’s side went into the break with a 1-0 lead thanks to a goal by Joe Willock. The Bees hit back in the second half with goals from Tariqe Fosu, Halil Dervişoğlu and Shandon Baptiste. Alexander Lacazette got on the scoresheet for Arsenal in the second half to make it two goals in two friendlies.

It is a positive sign to see Lacazette on the scoresheet because he has endured a frustrating season. With neither Lacazette nor Pepe in form for much of the campaign, Arsenal have relied on Pierre Emerick Aubameyang for goals and while the skipper has delivered the goods, the lack of goals from alternate sources has definitely contributed to our mediocre season.

Here’s hoping Alexander Lacazette finds form for the remaining games of the season. It will have a big impact on where Arsenal finish in the Premier League table.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
