Arsenal lose to Hibernian

Arsenal began their pre-season earlier this week with a clash against Scottish outfit, Hibernian.

The Gunners were missing a number of key players due to their recent international commitments.

However, Mikel Arteta was still able to field a number of quality senior stars against Hibernian – including the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Nicolas Pepe, Emile Smith Rowe and Willian.

Despite this, the north Londoners came away with a defeat on the day. Goals from Martin Boyle and Daniel MacKay fired Hibbs into a 2-0 lead with just over 20 minutes to go.

And whilst Smith Rowe did pull one back in the 82nd minute, Arsenal would eventually come away with a rather disappointing loss.
