It’s then great defending from Sousa a minute later in his own six-yard box, slides in and had to get that right. 17:08, Matt Verri82 mins: Reminder that there will be a penalty shootout after the match, with an extra point on offer for the winner. Things have slowed down a bit in terms of the match, but it will all be worth it when we get the penalties. Hang on in there. 17:06, Matt Verri80 mins: So close to 4-0! Never mind keeping them at bay, Arsenal almost extend the lead! Initial shot hits the post, Marquinhos from the rebound is then denied by a brilliant save.
Not his finest moment. 16:48, Matt Verri62 mins: Loads of changes from Lyon - Cherki, Tete, Lepenant and Reine-Adelaide all coming on. Arteta still pretty much keeping faith with his first-team stars, at least for now. 16:44, Matt Verri58 mins: Elneny... inches away! Arsenal pushing for a fourth, patient play on the edge of the box and it comes to Elneny.
For Lyon, this encounter is about fine-tuning ahead of the French Super Cup against Paris Saint-Germain next weekend. Much like the forthcoming Wembley encounter between Arsenal and Chelsea, that match will be seen as an opportunity to lay down a marker ahead of the domestic title race.

Drives into the space, squares it for Nketiah and the striker just about finds the bottom corner as he loses his balance. 16:02, Matt Verri32 mins: Quick throw and all of a sudden Nketiah is in, ball bouncing awkwardly though. Eventually drops enough for him to attempt to lift it over Lopes, goalkeeper gets enough on it to take the pace out of the ball and it’s cleared away.
Imagine the majority of them will get their opportunity at some point in the second-half. A reminder of who is on the bench:Hillson, Foran, Walters, Sousa, Smith, Cirjan, Lewis-Skelly, Cozier-Duberry, Nwaneri, Marquinhos, Sagoe Jr, Butler-OyedejiHT: Arsenal 3-0 Lyon16:16, Matt VerriOfficials can’t be bothered with much added-time, so that’s the end of the first-half. Arsenal so sharp and they have a 3-0 lead to show for it, goals coming from Gabriel, Nketiah and Vieira. Slick passing, clinical finish, rarely troubled at the back...
16:53, Matt Verri67 mins: Brace yourselves. The entirety of north London is standing on the touchline, pretty much the whole team is about to be changed. This could take some time. 16:50, Matt Verri64 mins: Chaos in the Lyon box, whistle didn’t go though! Cross looped in, Lopes comes and doesn’t claim, left in a heap on the floor. Plays goes on, falls for Marquinhos but he drags the effort into the side-netting with the goal pretty much empty.
Predicted Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Petr Cech; Mathieu Debuchy, Per Mertesacker (c), Laurent Koscielny, Kieran Gibbs; Francis Coquelin, Santi Cazorla; Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain; Danny WelbeckLyon face Villarreal on the second day of the tournament, so they are likely to field something close to their strongest possible lineup on the opening day against the hosts. Playmaker Clement Grenier started on the bench in the most recent friendly against Milan, but he is likely to be reintroduced to face the Gunners. There could also be a start for new boy Claudio Beauvue—a summer signing from Guingamp. Predicted Lyon XI (4-3-3): Anthony Lopes; Christophe Jallet, Henri Bedimo, Lindsay Rose, Samuel Umtiti; Maxime Gonalons, Clement Grenier, Jordan Ferri; Nabil Fekir, Claudio Beauvue, Alexandre LacazettePlayers to watch Arsenal: Olivier GiroudJoseph Nair/Associated PressIn Arsenal’s last pre-season outing against Everton, Giroud was arguably the most disappointing of the outfield players on show.
Anyway, a brief pause as Arteta calls everyone over. 16:58, Matt Verri72 mins: Corner Lyon, who will feel they should really be the better side now after all those Arsenal changes. Swung in, too close to Hein and the goalkeeper claims confidently. 16:56, Matt Verri70 mins: Cozier-Duberry, Foran, Cirijan, Smith, Nwaneri, Lewis-Skelley, Sousa, Walters and Butler-Oyedeji are all on for Arsenal. Hein the only player who started the match to still be on. Lyon meanwhile should score, but Dembele heads wide when free in the box.
Nowhere near the corner, stays 2-1. 17:26, Matt VerriHein with another brilliant save! Tete goes for power but the Arsenal goalkeeper guesses correctly. 2-1 Arsenal. 17:25, Matt VerriCirjan... oh no. He’s gone for the panenka and the goalkeeper hasn’t move. Horrendous. 2-1 Arsenal still. 17:24, Matt VerriMendes for Lyon, goes for the stuttering run-up and makes no mistake. That was very composed. 17:23, Matt VerriSmith next up for the Gunners and it’s another great penalty, sends the goalkeeper the wrong way. 2-0 Arsenal.

Arsenal vs. Lyon: Team News, Preview, Live Stream, TV Info
pretty perfect 45 minutes for Arteta and his side. (REUTERS)16:13, Matt Verri44 mins: Lyon with their first spell of sustained possession in a while. They’ve not really been in the game at all. Interesting to see how many changes Arteta makes at half-time, or whether he opts to give his first-team players as much action as possible. 16:11, Matt Verri41 mins: Tierney looks to whip a cross in from out wide, blocked behind for a corner. Cedric over to take it. Taken short, eventually comes in and Gabriel flicks a header wide. Almost had his second! GOAL! Arsenal 3-0 Lyon | Fabio Vieira 39'16:08, Matt VerriWhat.
Arsenal vs Lyon: Live stream, kick-off time and latest team news for Dubai CupAfter two and a half weeks of continuous football over in Qatar, the action has been briefly halted ahead of the World Cup quarter-finals which get underway tomorrow (Friday). Thankfully, Arsenal are back in action today as Mikel Arteta’s side face Lyon in the Dubai Super Cup. The Gunners will then face AC Milan on Tuesday as part of the competition before heading back to the UK and playing Juventus on December 17th in a separate friendly at the Emirates Stadium. Attention then turns back towards the Premier League which resumes on Boxing Day and Mikel Arteta will be hoping his men can maintain the impressive form that has seen them claim top spot at Christmas.
With question marks over whether he is the right man to fire Arsenal back to the Premier League’s summit, this would be a great time for him to show his best form. There are around five weeks until the transfer window slams shut, and Giroud has that period of time to convince Wenger there is no need to invest in a superior striker. That battle begins in earnest during the Emirates Cup.
Arsenal 3-0 Lyon LIVE! Dubai Super Cup result, match stream, latest reaction and updates today(REUTERS)Arsenal vs Lyon - LIVE! Arsenal showed no signs of rustiness as they cruised to a 3-0 win over Lyon in the Dubai Super Cup. Almost a month after the Gunners beat Wolves in their final Premier League match before club football went on a break for the World Cup, Mikel Arteta’s side looked as sharp as ever in their first of two matches in Dubai. Goals from Gabriel, Eddie Nketiah and Fabio Vieira put the Gunners in complete control heading into the break, and that proved to be more than enough for victory. A penalty shootout took place after the match with an extra point on offer, and Karl Hein, with his four saves, was the only one to come out with real credit as the Gunners won 2-1 following a really poor set of spot-kicks.
A. Strike. It’s a sublime Arsenal move, one-touch passing takes them into the Lyon box before it’s played out to Vieira. He provides a sensational finish, whipping it into the top corner from distance. Nobody is saving that. 16:05, Matt Verri36 mins: Lyon almost respond immediately, Dembele bringing the ball forward and letting fly from 20 yards out. Catches it sweetly, always rising over the bar though. That’s as close as the Ligue 1 side have come. GOAL! Arsenal 2-0 Lyon | Eddie Nketiah 33'16:03, Matt VerriLovely move! Odegaard lays the ball back, Lokonga clips a brilliant pass out to Vieira and he’s got the freedom of the Lyon half.
The Emirates Cup is one of three trophies available to Arsenal in pre-season. They’ve already lifted the Asia Trophy after defeating Everton in the final and will have designs on completing a friendly treble by winning the Emirates Cup and Community Shield too. Arsene Wenger is a huge fan of the competition, telling Arsenal's official website:Personally I love the Emirates Cup because it’s competitive without having too much pressure on the games. It is vital for preparation. The international players came back quite late on July 11, so when you think that they have less than four weeks to prepare for the first Premier League game, it’s very short.
