Arsenal have stepped up their pre-season preparations with a 9-0 win over Crawley Town in a behind-closed-doors friendly at London Colney.
The match, which was not advertised, saw Unai Emery field a strong line-up against Harry Kewell’s League Two outfit.
The Gunners weren’t due to play until they face Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint Germain in Singapore next week, so we can only assume that it was a late addition to the schedule.
Bernd Leno made his first appearance for the club since moving from Bayer Leverkusen and Matteo Guendouzi, who made his debut off the bench against Boreham Wood on Saturday, also got a run-out.
From what we can tell, the following players also got minutes: Petr Cech, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Eddie Nketiah, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Aaron Ramsey, Konstantinos Mavropanos, Jordi Osei-Tutu, Sead Kolasinac, Rob Holding, Reiss Nelson, Shkodran Mustafi, Lucas Perez, Sokratis, Hector Bellerin, Emile Smith Rowe, Emiliano Martinez, Alex Lacazette, Carl Jenkinson, Calum Chambers.
According to our youth correspondent, Jeorge Bird, the Arsenal goalscorers were: Lucas Perez (2), Alexandre Lacazette (2), Eddie Nketiah, Reiss Nelson, The Jeff, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
