Report: MK Dons 1-4 Arsenal



Arsenal’s pre-season preparations got rolling with a 4-1 win over MK Dons 4-1 at Stadium MK.
Despite most of his players being on holiday until yesterday, Mikel Arteta selected a surprisingly strong team. Bernd Leno returned in goal, William Saliba made his debut, Mohamed Elneny, back from his loan with Besiktas, partnered Granit Xhaka in midfield and Eddie Nketiah led the line with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Ainsley Maitland-Niles, rumoured to be on his way out of the club, also started.
The Gunners raced into a two goal lead courtesy of efforts by Elneny and Nketiah. The Egyptian, back from his loan at Besiktas and partnering Xhaka, swept home from near the halfway line after the Dons keeper made a hash of a clearance. Nketiah doubled the lead before the 10-minute mark tucking home Saka’s cutback.

As expected, there were a plethora of changes after the break with Emile Smith Rowe, Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock all coming on. Further goals were added via Mark McGuinness’ thundering header and a penalty won and converte...
