Arsenal’s perfect pre-season record came to an end behind closed doors on Wednesday, when Brentford defeated Mikel Arteta’s team 2-1 at the Gunners’ London Colney training camp, dampening the atmosphere following an incredible trip.

Arsenal trounced Ipswich Town, Everton, Nuremberg, and Orlando City before cruising past Chelsea in a pre-season romp earlier this month, with new acquisitions Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko already making an impression.

Arteta was quick to point out after the 4-0 win against the Blues that such a success should not be “carried away,” but excitement among Arsenal fans is at an all-time high, even if the loss to Brentford did raise an eyebrow or two.

The Gunners have one more chance to complete their pre-season on a high before the start of the new Premier League season against Crystal Palace on August 5, although they were defeated 2-1 by Lyon in the most recent edition of the Emirates Cup in 2019.

Arsenal won the Emirates Cup four times during its four-tournament period, in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2015, and 2017, although Sevilla are no strangers to battling North London competition.

Sevilla kicked out their pre-season against Arsenal’s fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur in South Korea, drawing 1-1 with the Lilywhites before defeating Sporting CP on penalties in the Trofeu Cinco Violinos, and they got goals in midweek as well.
In a 6-0 hammering of Angers on Wednesday, Lopetegui’s team made it three pre-season games without loss, with Lucas Ocampos, Erik Lamela, and Youssef En-Nesyri on the scoreboard, although most of the discussion surrounding the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan is presently taking place off the field.

While Jules Kounde is recovering from a hernia procedure and was not seen on Wednesday, the Frenchman is said to be on the verge of joining Barcelona as Lopetegui prepares to begin a new defensive phase without Kounde or Diego Carlos.

As previously stated, Sevilla travelled to London for the 2017 Emirates Cup, where the La Liga side defeated both Arsenal and RB Leipzig but lost the title to the Gunners due to additional points for goals scored.

The injury curse has continued to plague some of Arsenal’s regular treatment room residents this summer, as Tierney and Tomiyasu are both doubts for Saturday’s Premier League start and should not be risked.

Emile Smith Rowe is also suffering from a muscle ailment, while new acquisition Fabio Vieira has yet to make his debut for the club owing to an ankle injury, and he is unlikely to recover in time for the Emirates Cup.

Arteta dismissed worries over Gabriel Jesus’ injury when he was substituted early against Chelsea, but Eddie Nketiah, who scored Arsenal’s lone goal in Wednesday’s loss to Brentford, is ready to take his place if his attack partner is not risked.


Meanwhile, new Sevilla center-back Marcao is likely to be healthy for the trip to England, while Rafa Mir remains a question due to a muscle injury.

Karim Rekik and Marcos Acuna only played 32 minutes in the win against Angers, but their withdrawals are seen to have been tactical, and the two could start here.

Arsenal have been linked with bids for Ocampos and En-Nesyri in recent years, with both individuals expected to play in the final third with ex-Spurs players Lamela and Jesus Corona.


Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Pepe; Nketiah

Sevilla possible starting lineup:
Bono; Navas, Gudelj, Rekik, Acuna; Jordan, Delaney; Corona, Gomez, Ocampos; En-Nesyri
