Comfortable win for Arsenal ahead of Emirates Cup
Arsenal under 23s secured a comfortable 4-0 win over Boreham Wood last night as the preseason preparations edge closer to the end.
Chuba Akpom, Stephy Mavididi and Jon Toral were on the scoresheet for Arsenal in this annual preseason game at Meadow Park.
It was a strong Arsenal team with Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Mathieu Debuchy and Carl Jenkinson all starting. Many of those playing last night will line up at some point during the Emirates Cup this weekend.
The Gunners were firmly in control throughout and could and perhaps should have added more.
It is another win on what has been a good preseason so far. The only loss coming against Chelsea in China.
This weekend the competition will step up again as Arsene Wenger’s side take on Benfica and Sevilla. These will be the final games before next Sunday’s Community Shield match against Chelsea at Wembley.
Then the big kick off to the Premier League season the following Friday awhen they welcome Leicester to the Emirates.
