Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Scores Hat-Trick In Opening 17 Minutes Of Pre-Season Friendly

Unai Emery's first game in charge of Arsenal was a resounding success after his side strolled to an emphatic 8-0 victory over National League outfit Boreham Wood FC.

Chambers penned a new long-term deal earlier this summer following the appointment of Unai Emery. Last year was a difficulty year for all not only for Mesut, they finished sixth in the Premier League, not the position we want.

"I'm really happy everybody played well so that's good".

Emery and his coaching staff have been working at Arsenal's training base for the last two weeks, running the rule over those players not involved at the World Cup.

"Normally, in my career, the big clubs don't close the [door] or the moment to sign a new player".

Emery is now also deciding which of these players will remain with his first-team squad and who would benefit from a season on loan. "Everyone knows what they have to do and that is important".

The 26-year-old England global featured 20 times in the Premier League last term under Arsene Wenger and would have seen his playing time "significantly reduced" under the Spaniard.

He added that it's still unclear whether Ozil and players like Granit Xhaka and new signing Stephan Lichtsteiner will be back in time for the team's preseason trip to Singapore later this month or if they'll join up with the squad when they return from Asia.

And although Gomes is a player who has been on Tottenham's radar for some time, Pochettino should pass up the opportunity to sign the Portuguese global this summer. "And Steve, first, as a person is very good, and he was a player here also", Emery said.
