HIGHLIGHTS | Hibernian vs Arsenal (2-1) | Pre-season friendly | Smith Rowe scores

Emile Smith Rowe was on target on Tuesday evening as we were beaten by Hibernian at Easter Road in our first game of pre-season.

With much of the focus on fitness and combination play, we started brightly enough and had a golden chance when Eddie Nketiah raced clean through on goal – only for the striker to shoot wide.

Reiss Nelson soon tested former Gunner Matt Macey with a firm strike as we forced the home side back, and from the resulting corner Nketiah sent a glancing header wide.

But out of nowhere, we gifted the Scottish side the lead when Arthur Okonkwo failed to deal with a tricky backpass from Cedric, and Martin Boyle had the simple task of collecting the loose ball and rolling it in from close range.

We fashioned a decent chance for an equaliser when a deep ball to the back post was headed back across goal by Sead Kolasinac, but Nelson’s goalbound shot hit Nketiah and deflected away.

Okonkwo soon made a sharp save to push away Stephen Bradley’s shot, before the Hibs striker hit the post moments later before the half-time break.

Mikel Arteta made seven changes at the interval, and one of them – Nicolas Pepe – came close to an immediate impact as his goalbound free kick from the edge of the area was pushed over.

Pepe soon saw a shot deflected just wide, while Folarin Balogun had an effort saved as we stepped things up – before Thomas Partey struck the post with a superb long-range free kick.

But, just like the first half, we were hit by a suckerpunch when a deep corner swung in from the right was headed back across goal by Paul Hanlon, and Daniel Mackay headed in from close range to double the hosts’ lead.

We looked to have a way back into the game when Pepe was taken down in the area and a penalty was awarded, but the Ivorian’s spot kick was saved.

We got back into the match with seven minutes remaining when, at the end of an intricate passing move, Hector Bellerin picked out Smith Rowe at the back post and he fired in.

But there was to be no late equaliser but Arteta will have seen plenty to encourage him despite the result.

Conceding comical goals, Eddie Nketiah missing a sitter, Willian chugging around pointlessly - Arsenal are back, baby!

The sad part is, we actually had a lot of our starting 11 in this team..
I’m genuinely convinced Swaz Lynch would actually be Arsenal’s best on the ball player

Arsenal is going to be so fun to watch this season. Arsenal insisting on keeping Arteta while he systematically proves he is incompetent gives me much joy. 😂

What a great start from arsenal only 2 goals conceded. Can't wait to the season.
The 2nd goal was offside, GK stepped out of line when saving penalty, they obstructed a clear goal scoring opportunity... We lost today because of unlucky things, so its nothing wrong

From this, safe to say Bellerin will be playing ahead of Cedric? One assist the goal while the other partly caused the concede goal.

Rishabh Pat
Rishabh Pat:
Same old story and the team is with full strength!!
I am sure, all those wood work will be converted to goals in the future!
One thing I want to see this season is to play Auba n Lacazette play together..... they are very lethal together in the box , have great understanding, compliment each other and covert all balls to goals.....
As an fan, I also expect Partey to launch his shots very often as his natural work rate is relatively less...and has lot of power in his shots....
Please give him more chances to launch his shots....he is capable of scoring goals out of the box and he should do that very often......
Eager to see them shine....! 👍
Our proven stars should not be shadowed by young stars.... 👍🙏
Come on Gooners... 👍
Amazing that its pre season and I still think Arteta is useless

Aside from Hibs 2nd goal clearly offside and the goalkeeper off his line before the penalty save...that's a pretty poor showing from Arsenal who had a lot of their 1st team squad involved.

Here don't be giving that keeper hate the on in the 1st half it was his debut so he was probably a bit nervous and the saves he done was excellent and the 2nd mistake wasn't his fault it was a bad pass so plz don't give him hate
