Arsenal need 'miracle' to win Premier League title - Kanu

Arsenal rounded off their pre-season preparations with a 2-0 win over Lazio on Saturday night, at the Friends Arena in Stockholm.

Chelsea began this match by partnering their £57 million club record-signing with a 17 year-old who had never previously started a senior competitive game, but there was no doubting which of the two left Dublin with their reputation most enhanced. The Spaniard only returned to pre-season training this week after the World Cup and took no part in this fixture.

Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi have been acquired, but there has been no elaborate spending in north London.

Hudson-Odoi was running the game and Morata should have scored from his ideal cross in the 15th minute but instead misjudged his header, Cech then using his left leg to deny the striker after more terrific work from the livewire teenager.

But it is also about greater organisation, a stronger mentality and about improving some of the players Emery has inherited and who lost their way. If he is ready to play, Nacho is ideal but if not, we can have this chance with Ainsley.

"Speaking on Twitter, Maddock said: "[There is] no LFC interest in Aaron Ramsey - no chance of any further Liverpool signings before the window closes.

"It's clear in the first week working they aren't in the best moment physically", he said.

"It feels so special, the first kit I had was Arsenal and long may I continue to represent them". "It's hard but it's what you expect of a coach of that stature and a big club".

"He would always say that a lot of people play well, but if you haven't impacted the game or done something that people recognise, then you really go unnoticed".

Unai Emery has been busy trying to build a squad capable of challenging for a place in the Champions League in the wake of Arsene Wenger leaving the club and he needs to raise funds through sales if he is to bring in any more players.
