Huddersfield 1 – 2 Arsenal (0 – 0 H/T)
Goals: Michael Flynn (75), Sanchez Watt (79), Nacer Barazite (87)
Arsenal played Huddersfield earlier this evening at the Galpharm, coming from behind to win 2-1.
The game was part of Huddersfield’s Centenary celebrations, and was dedicated to Herbert Chapman, a manager who achieved great success with both Huddersfield and Arsenal throughout the 1920s and 1930s. After the game Arsenal lifted the first Herbert Chapman Trophy.
The line up was a young one, Wenger taking no risks with the upcoming Champions League qualifier against FC Twente on the 13th August:
J.Hoyte G. Hoyte Djourou (c) Gibbs
Lansbury Randall Ramsey Wilshere
Arsenal’s youngsters got a run out here and came away with a decent win. Ramsey looked very good in the centre of the park as did Randall, who is surely one to watch for the future.
