Arsenal stars relax in pool after losing behind-closed-doors friendly to Brentford

The Gunners met their London rivals in a behind-closed doors friendly yesterday, losing 2-1 after an error from new goalkeeper Bernd Leno.


But there was a slither of good news from the game – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made it five goals in three games and could be a big player for new boss Unai Emery.

The Premier League side tried to keep the game quiet, but didn't bank on a Brentford man posting on Instagram about a pre-season game and tagging London Colney as the location.

It was later confirmed that the two teams did indeed clash, with the Championship side triumphing.

But there were not sad faces from Gunners players after, as they relaxed in the pool close to the training centre.



Alexandre Lacazette, who despite missing out on the World Cup with France, was in great spirits as he frolicked in the water.

Meanwhile defender Rob Holding ramped things up a notch and somersaulted into the water.


Aubameyang was joined in the Jacuzzi by Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and new-signing Matteo Guendouzi.

The French midfielder has joined from Lorient for £7m.
