Arsenal vs Western Sydney Wanderers player ratings: Aaron Ramsey delivers

Arsenal vs Western Sydney Wanderers player ratings: Aaron Ramsey delivers

Alexandre Lacazette scored on his first appearance in an Arsenal shirt but his pre-season cameo suggests he will bring more than just goals.

Nelson is widely seen as the next big thing to come out of Arsenal's academy, and the 17-year-old midfielder lived up to the billing in this game. His arrival has prompted Giroud to hint at a potential departure from north London in the coming weeks, but the vast competition in attack from Danny Welbeck to Alex Iwobi means Arsenal are better placed than they were last campaign.

Per Mertesacker had earlier found a way through against the reigning A-League champions, though it took until seven minutes from time to kill the game off thanks to Lacazette's poacher instincts.

The period after the goal wasn't as action packed as the first 5 minutes of the game but it was clear to see the benefits of the 3-4-3 formation that was used.

"I think he's copped a lot of harsh criticism over the last couple of years but you've got to remember two years ago he helped the Wanderers to the grand final, so he is a number-one keeper", Arnold said.

US Stocks Edge Higher In Early Trade
In economic data, USA producer prices unexpectedly rose last month, as higher service costs offset declining energy prices. Analysts estimate second-quarter earnings for the S&P 500 companies rose 8.1 percent from a year earlier.

He is now on the Gunners' pre-season tour of Australia and China, but admitted that he could be lured away with a guarantee of first-team football. "No matter what happens, I did my job on the pitch". With [Aaron] Ramsey, I was a bit cautious as well because the last few seasons he's been troubled with injury. I always felt comfortable there. He will play on Saturday night.

Lacazette, along with seven others, were withdrawn by Arsene Wenger after 66 minutes, the club-record signing enduring a quiet game after a lively start.

"Mr Wenger got what every manager would like, a strong club, you stay two more years of contract, and in conditions to work and try to win titles".

"I hope to play", Riera said.

It is insane money, for a player who netted six Premier League goals last season, and perhaps it's time for West Ham to explore better options.
