Arsenal vs Rangers: Preview
Expectations are high among Arsenal fans for the new season, as Arteta will not have any European football to contend with as he bids to pull together a team capable of challenging for the top four once again.
However, their preparations for the new season could hardly have kicked off in a worse way, as Hibs duo Daniel MacKay and Martin Boyle both found the back of the net against a makeshift Gunners team before Emile Smith Rowe added nothing more than a consolation effort in the 82nd minute.
Arsenal fans ought not to read too much into a pre-season defeat – especially with Arteta handing several up-and-coming starlets the chance to impress – but some of the same old problems were evident, as Arsenal were undone by a set piece and were lacking a clinical edge throughout the 90 minutes.
Arsenal vs Rangers: Prediction
This is the true meaning of a friendly encounter between two teams who look at one another with a sense of fondness, but both managers will be demanding more after somewhat demoralising defeats.As always, heavy rotation can be expected on both ends, and we are ultimately struggling to see a clear winner in this pre-season battle.
