Fans demand Nketiah is given minutes this season after Bayern Munich victor

Fans demand Nketiah is given minutes this season after Bayern Munich victor

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are the club's leading strikers, but the Arsenal supporters believe Nketiah has shown enough quality to be the next man in line.

Unai Emery fielded a strong team throughout the match, only introducing some of the younger players late in the second half, and will be pleased with some elements of the performance but disappointed, of course, in others.

Bukayo Saka, James Olayinka, and Gabriel Martinelli all netted in the 3-0 win over Colorado Rapids, while Dominic Thompson, Edward Nketiah, Robbie Burton, Tyreece John-Jules, and Zech Medley all started.

In truth, the game could have gone either way as both teams had chances but Arsenal's late substitutes made a big difference to give them extra energy as Bayern exhausted.

They are going to be with us in the pre-season and some players are also going to be with us in the season.

"Players like Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard can only help us". Our responsibility at this club for the history, for the present and for the future is to have young players with the possibilities to take chances. Here are three takeaways from the Gunners' second pre-season match of their United States tour. Meanwhile, new signings from either side are likely to get a run-out as well as they look to gel with the squad. "We need more to train properly", continued the Pole.

Next up for the Gunners is a clash against Serie A side Fiorentina on Saturday night before they face Real Madrid next Wednesday.
