Arsenal begin their Premier League campaign against last season champions, Manchester City at the Emirates on August 12. He's made them very competitive.

Youngster Reiss Nelson continued his productive preseason with another goal after he followed up on Alex Iwobi's strike which rebounded off the post.

He has nine goals so far in his 98 appearances and his wasteful finishing has been a source of frustration among fans.

Alexandre Lacazette almost pulled Arsenal level with 15 minutes remaining, bu this low strike from close range sailed inches wide of the post.

All their star-attackers - Lacazette, Ozil, Aubameyang, Mkhitaryan can start together in a 4-2-3-1 formation with the Gabonese worldwide operating on the left wing. Will the pair see us challenge for top honours this term?

But former striker Hartson believes the Gunners need to sign one more to further improve their squad ahead of the new season.

Aubameyang offered similar sentiments back in April, saying he hoped to get the opportunity to play alongside Lacazette in an interview with Sky Sports.

Injuries have plagued the England man over the past 18 months and the news of his potential departure has alerted Everton, who are one of the clubs interested in securing his services.

It's clear that Torreira feels great admiration for the Gunners' playmaker, Mesut Ozil, and is eager to soak up as much as possible from the now-former German global.

Despite playing fewer minutes than Aubameyang, however, Lacazette has been the more prolific of the pair in Arsenal's warm-up games.

Having been second best for much of the first half, Arsenal ended it strongly and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed a good chance to equalise. The players understand what is expected of them and are making progress under their new manager. It's up to him to find the right configuration, but it's an exciting prospect for Arsenal regardless.
