It was a great start for Arsenal in their preseason Shanghai tour as the Gunners defeated German giants Bayern Munich 3-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time.
Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring with an early spot kick, but Alex Iwobi popped up with a late equalizer for the Gunners, taking the game to penalty shootout.
Arsenal’s 3rd choice goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez turned out to be the hero of the proceedings as he saved two penalties and won the game for the Gunners.
All in all, there were many positives for the fans to take as their team finally managed to beat the side that has romped them 5-1 in each of their last three meetings.
A little clip of some post-match banter between the Arsenal players has been making the rounds amongst Liverpool fans. The video features some post-match banter between Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny and hot property Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, with the English international poking fun at Elneny by claiming that Liverpool’s new boy Salah is the ‘king’ of Egypt.
The Ox has been linked with Liverpool since a long time now, and his appreciation for Mohamed Salah will only be inferred as a major hint of his willingness to play for the Merseyside club.
Supporters will hope that Liverpool sign the Ox the soon, as they realise that squad depth will be an important aspect next season because of the Champions League, League cup and FA Cup games mid week.
Check out the bit from Ox below –
