Arsenal came from behind to beat Manchester City 3-2 in Gothenburg in their final pre-season friendly.

Raheem Sterling scored the opener, but Alex Iwobi, Theo Walcott and Chuba Akpom scored for the Gunners before Kelechi Iheanacho’s consolation.

  1. Arsenal Lost Garbriel To Injury Yesterday

Arsenal defender Gabriel went off on a stretcher with an ankle injury late on and will most likely not start the season with Arsenal.

  1. Chelsea Also Lost Terry To Injury

Chelsea lost John Terry to injury in a 4-2 win over Werder Bremen and this will be a big blow to new Manager, Antonio Conte as he counts on Terry’s experience to rebuild the London club that finished 10th in the league last season.

  1. Liverpool Lost Heavily To Mainz

Liverpool lost 4-0 to Mainz, a day after beating Barcelona by that score.

The Reds named a slightly weakened team against one of manager Jurgen Klopp’s old clubs, although Emre Can, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana and Divock Origi all started.

  1. Southampton Was Also In Action

Southampton beat Athletic Bilbao 1-0 at St Mary’s, with Shane Long scoring the only goal. This will be a big boost for the Saints as they head to a new season full of confidence.
