Arsenal’s first home game of the season ended in a defeat at the hands of French side Lyon in the Emirates Cup Final.

The Gunners took the lead in the first half, but the visitors came back strongly after the break and turned the deficit into a lead and handed a defeat to Unai Emery’s men.

In a first half of missed opportunities and domination of the opposition, Arsenal took the lead in the 35th minute when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang tucked in from close range after a delicious cross from Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Just after half-time, the home side had chances to double the lead but they were guilty of missing them.

Eventually, Lyon came back into the game and scored the equaliser in the 66th minute when Moussa Dembele was given the freedom in the box to head the ball home.

The former Celtic man scored again nine minutes later, piercing through the Arsenal defence to turn the game around.

After that, it was all about the French side holding onto the lead and winning the game. On the other hand, the Gunners were left to rue the opportunities and their defensive frailties.
