Here we go again.
Arsenal started the new era under Unai Emery as they kicked-off their pre-season schedule by beating Boreham Wood in a friendly.
The Gunners steamrolled their London opponents at a sun-drenched Meadow Park, winning 8-0 and looking in impressive shape ahead of the new season.
Good result, lads.
There’s no need to get carried away though, it’s only pre-season, right?
Arsenal are destined to win the Premier League now because of that result. That’s the line according to Gunners fans anyway.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted a 16-minute hat-trick in the win, which has really made everyone go a bit crazy.
We all know that the Gabon striker is a clinical finisher, but did he really have to tease Arsenal fans like that?
There will be cries of #AubameyangOut if he doesn’t score every game now…
The former Borussia Dortmund man was joined on the score-sheet by his strike partner Alexandre Lacazette, as the pair’s link-up whetted the appetites of fans.
Youngsters Reiss Nelson and Jeff Reine-Adelaide, along with the experienced Henrikh Mkhitarayn, all scored in the rout too.
Arsenal fans have been teased by impressive pre-seasons in the past, before the season fades away into nothing and misery follows.
This time however, under new management, they are all convinced it’s going to be a different story.
Fans are really losing their sh*t…
