Match Preview

Arsenal last hosted Lyon in the Emirates Cup four years ago, with the Gunners running out 6-0 winners. But that was a very different Arsenal side with Oliver Giroud, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla all on the scoresheet and Arsene Wenger still at the helm - not to mention a Champions League campaign to look forward to.

Now, as much as match fitness the emphasis will be on maintaining the growing optimism around the club.

Fans are excited by the news of a club-record deal for Nicolas Pepe, the Kieran Tierney saga is gathering pace and deals have already been struck for Dani Ceballos and William Saliba.

With two weeks still to go before Arsenal travel to Newcastle in their first Premier League outing of the new campaign, there is time for Emery to tinker and experiment with his squad. Following this game, the Gunners have further friendlies against Angers and Barcelona.

Lyon had an up-and-down campaign last season, finishing three points off second in Ligue 1, progressing through the group stage of the Champions League and reaching the semi-finals of both domestic cups.

They face a challenge in replicating those feats this time around. Leading striker Moussa Dembele is still there - for now - but the loss of buccaneering left-back Ferland Mendy, star midfielder Tanguy Ndombele and club captain Nabil Fekir all in the same window is sure to hit the squad hard.

But in crisis comes opportunity. Talented youngsters like Houssem Aouar, Lucas Tousart and Pape Cheikh Diop will be confident of ensuring the departed trio are not too sorely missed.

Memphis Depay has shone for Lyon since joining two and a half years ago, and fans will be hoping his mind is fully back on the job following the summer release of his most recent single, 'Fall Back'.
