Arsenal will play host to Lyon in their first match of the annual Emirates Cup this weekend.
Lyon come into the game against Arsenal on the back of an impressive performance last season, after they finished second on the French Ligue 1 table behind PSG.
Lyon manager Hubert Fournier stressed the importance of the clash against Arsenal as they prepare to take on PSG for the Trophee des Champions final.
“It is another exciting test for us. It is going to allow us to give additional playing time to the entire squad. We are going to have 90 minutes in our legs before the Trophee des Champions final against Paris Saint-Germain. “
“We think it is an important trophy, myself, the staff and the players – it’s a competition we will take seriously, that is why we are preparing seriously for it. These matches will allow us to get up and running so we can be at our best in that competition.”
Having said this, here is how I think Fournier will line up his side against the Gunners.
