Arsenal 5 – 0 Szombathelyi Haladas. Highlights and Eduardo Interview

First Half: Mannone Eboue Traore Toure Djourou Denilson Ramsey Song Wilshere Eduardo Bendtner

Second Half: Szczesny Sagna Silvestre Vermaelen Gallas Senderos Ramsey Van Persie Wilshere Eduardo Arshavin

Thanks to the brilliant Arsenalist for the highlights.

Arsenal won 5-0 yesterday against the Hungarians Szombathelyi Haladas, with Bendtner and  Eduardo grabbing two goals each and Van Persie finishing up with a penalty.

The win was straightforward with good performances from Bendtner and Wilshere. It was interesting to see Traore playing, he is another quality left sided player.

The other interesting development is whether Toure will play a part in the next few games, as there are reports that he will sign for Man City by this weekend.

Eduardo gave an interview after the game where he seemed in high spirits, and denied that he has been injured in pre-season. It would be good to see him come into form this season and fulfil his potential now that Ade is gone.

All in all looking at the line-up it seems our team is stronger than we think, seeing as top quality players such as Cesc, Rosicky, Walcott, Clichy, Nasri and Almunia did not play. Even if Toure is leaving there is still quality in the squad which can come to the fore. This season has to be the one where our young talent matures.

Arsenal 1 – 1 Szombathelyi Haladás – Video Highlights

Hi all, a few hours ago Arsenal played their second preseason match, this time in Hungary, against Szombathelyi Haladás.

The Hungarian side took the lead first before Walcott equalised in the 41st minute.

The Arsenal line up was more experimental, mainly composed of younger players. The team played reasonably, but looked fatigued in the second half.
