    As in that's his job? Yeah, but from what I know he has a bad defensive record at every club

    Shocking, classic Arsenal loosing Laca before the season even started.

    Ridiculous second half. Xhaka as captain even worse than regular xhaka.

    Forgot the game was on then saw the score. Big man is awesome. Type of forward we need. Lacazette out Dembele in.

    When will Emery learn to stop defending so deep after a lead & stop defending deep after just a 1-0 lead!

    Jon Moss is so heavy, the Japanese are thinking of hunting him.

    There were encouraging things about this performance, despite the loss. Willock and Nelson were encouraging, Guendouzi aswell. Auba looks very sharp. We looked quite cohesive in the first half, even Xhaka and Mhki had good moments. In the 2nd half, the latter two faded and the team got caught by Lyons stronger players IMO. The defending could have been better but it's not exactly a strong area for us.

    Nketiah was good when he came on but he also faded towards the end. Had good opportunities aswell. He will surely start to take them more IMO, just a bit too eager at times. Wish we could have seen more of Ceballos, really enjoyed his cameo. He should start over Xhaka but that won't happen and Xhaka will get 90 mins every week.

    Aouar is pretty great.. He will get his big move sooner rather than later.

    We should have never left the United States.

    Nah, was good. We had enough chances to win this, but on the other side we always conceding.
    Conceding to many 1vs1 or easy crossey.

    Some youngsters looked good, Medley isn't a LB.

    Think Emery should be doing better with the back line. The defenders are not as bad as they are showing.

    Going to be a season of high scoring games, this probably could have ended 4-2 but the attack were just a bit rusty. Dunno if you can call the defense rusty when they look like that all season.

    Lots of positives From the first half, plus Martinelli and cebalos look interesting. Martinelli should have had a foul at the end when he was blocked off outside the box. The future certainly looks bright.

    But **** me Xhaka could be replaced by a plank of wood that Leno and the CBs bounce the ball off back to themselves. He slows down the break every time with a pass back.

    And I hate to get on the mustafi bandwagon, but when Dembele got through he just stopped and put his hand up. Play to the whistle.

    I thought Eddie was rubbish, actually outside of that one moment where he bullied Sule he's been pretty meh missing lot of easy chances this pre-season. Don't think he is ready at all, hope he goes on loan.

    Xhaka was absolutely rubbish this pre-season and this game was no exception. I mean he is usually rubbish anyway, but hope he gets ready in time for the season's start because looking at the line up today we don't have actually anyone to deputize for him since all of Guen/Torreira/Caballos/Willock seem to play mainly next to him...

    If we get Pepe we're going the way of Liverpool 2013/14. Goals will push us into the Top 4.
