When the Premier League comes round in less than a fortnight, Arsenal’s players might just be dancing when they score, if the club’s latest Instagram post, which involves Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, is anything to go by.
The Gunners have kicked off the Unai Emery era in style, thrashing the likes of Boreham Wood and Paris Saint-Germain in pre-season to spark hope among the Arsenal faithful that the upcoming campaign might just be a trophy-laden one.
While they did lose to Atletico Madrid, the tie was 1-1 after 90 minutes and the Rojiblancos only triumphed on penalties.
Here’s the video of Aubameyang, Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi giving fans a hint of what might take place when the Gunners score in the 2018/19 Premier League season:
If that wasn’t enough, here’s a post by Aubameyang himself:
While the Gunners haven’t exactly broken the bank in the summer, they have shored up their backline with a number of astute signings.
German custodian Bern Leno, Greek defender Sokratis and Uruguayan defensive midfielder Lucas Torreia have all arrived at the Emirates to give them some steel at the back.
After Ozil announced his International retirement last week, many fans are hopeful that the German will now be able to bring his A-game week in, week out for the North Londoners.
With Aubameyang and Lacazette playing up top, the Gunners have a very solid squad and it’s not at all a top-heavy one.
Aaron Ramsey, who is yet to sign a new deal, Hector Bellerin and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are some of the other big names at Emery’s disposal.
The Gunners have returned to Europe after their pre-season tour of Singapore and will now take on Premier League rivals Chelsea in three days’ time.
Their clash with the Blues will be the final one of the summer as they then will start preparations for their Premier League opener against Manchester City on August 12.
