It’s the day we’ve all been waiting for! Well, it’s a day, anyway. The Emirates Cup is today and tomorrow, and Arsenal take on Benfica in today’s second match. As I write this, Sevilla is beating RB Leipzig 1-0 in the first match, so Arsenal will need three fictional points to take the fictional top of the fictional table of this fictional tournament. Anyway, here’s Arsenal’s lineup for today:
Lacazette’s on the bench, so he’ll probably start the next game. And oh look it’s Xhaquelin in the midfield.
Anyway, use this as your Emirates Cup open thread, if you’re following these games. What do you want to see? Who are you excited to see?
