Arsenal began their pre-season International Champions Cup campaign with a dramatic late 2-1 win over Bayern Munich.
Unai Emery fielded a strong team against the German champions, with the Gunners going ahead shortly after the interval after Bayern defender Louis Poznanski guided the ball into his own net.
The Bundesliga giants responded 20 minutes after initially going behind, with former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry providing a cross for Robert Lewandowski to power home.
The match looked to be heading for a draw, however, an 88th-minute winner from 20-year-old substitute Eddie Nketiah handed Emery’s side an impressive win.
The Gunners used 19 players during the match, with plenty of youth and experience on show.
Arsenal will now take on Serie A side Fiorentina in Charlotte on Saturday before facing Spanish giants Real Madrid in Landover late on Tuesday.
However, before that, we’ve decided to hand out our ratings from the Gunners’ impressive performance in Los Angeles.
Bernd Leno - 7
Made an excellent save to deny Thomas Muller before being subbed at half-time. Overall, a solid display.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles - 6
The youngster was another who enjoyed a solid display on Wednesday and wasn’t replaced by Unai Emery.
Shkodran Mustafi - 4
Mustafi struggled for the entire 81 minutes he was on the pitch. The German lost Robert Lewandowski for Bayern’s goal and looked edgy throughout.
Sokratis - 7
Sokratis rightly played the whole of the match. The Greek international is probably the Gunners’ best defender at this moment in time, however, that isn’t a big accolade.
Nacho Monreal - 6
Despite losing pace year on year, Monreal looked solid in the first half before making way for Saed Kolasinac at half time.
Granit Xhaka - 6
Tipped to takeover from Laurent Koscielny as Gunners captain, Xhaka looked shaky at times but generally shielded the back four well.
Joe Willock - 8
Willock is certainly making the most of the opportunities he is being handed. The youngster impressed throughout and showed Unai Emery he is ready to make the step up into the first-team next season.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan - 6
Started poorly but gradually grew into proceedings before being replaced with 25 minutes remaining.
Mesut Ozil - 8
Sporting a new blonde look, Ozil also caught the eye with his performance on the pitch. The German looked like he had a point to prove and did just that.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - 7
Created the chance which led to the Gunners’ opening goal and looked sharp throughout.
Alexandre Lacazette - 6
The Frenchman wasn’t involved as much as he would have liked but worked hard.
Emiliano Martinez - 6
Couldn’t do anything about Bayern’s equaliser after replacing Bernd Leno at half time.
Sead Kolasinac - 5
The Bosnian struggled against Serge Gnabry in the second-half and looked a yard off the pace compared to everyone else.
Robbie Burton - 6
Came on for Joe Willock for the final 25 minuets and proved he can hold is own on the big stage.
Reiss Nelson - 7
Looked lively in the final stages and perhaps should have scored one for himslef late on.
Tyreece John-Jules - 7
Despite missing a golden chance to seal the win, John-Jules’ direct run help set up Eddie Nketiah’s winner.
Eddie Nketiah - 7
Made a name for himself in the final 10 minutes after replacing Alexandre Lacazette. The youngster cooley slotted home the winner from Tyreece John-Jules’ ball in.
Bukayo Saka - 6
The youngster had Bayern’s defence worried on multiple occasions with his energetic presence late on.
Calum Chambers - 6
After returning from Fulham, Chambers has a point to prove and looked solid after replacing Shkodran Mustafi in the closing stages.
