[Match Highlights] Arsenal 1-1(P) Atletico Madrid

Breaking down Arsenal’s tactical set-up under Unai Emery

Arsenal began their International Champions Cup with penalty heartbreak as substitute goalkeeper Antonio Adan saved three and scored the victor in Singapore.

It didn't take long after the break for Arsenal to level and 17-year-old midfielder Emile Smith-Rowe showed his prowess by storming past Atleti's defenders and firing past substitute debutant Antonio Adan.

The game ended 3-1 on penalties in Atleti's favour.

It has been a summer of change at Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger leaving the club after more than two decades as manager and rumours recently suggesting that shareholder Alisher Usmanov is looking to sell off his stake in the club after more than a decade.

Both teams now searched for a winning goal but couldn't get one and Unai Emery however changed his attacking players as he made 8 changes in the second half, so the gunners defended in the last minutes of the game as the match went to penalties.

However, the 29-year-old's high £35 million (Dh120m) release clause could prove problematic in the north London side's attempts to get the deal over the line.

"Today I am very happy with his work on the pitch, but not only today". They are working hard in training to be involved with the first team.

The Gunners and Atletico will stay in Singapore for the rest of July to play one more match.

'This is the moment for young players to show their quality, like Emile has done today, ' he said.

Luciano Vietto opened the scoring for the Spaniards on 41 minutes, with a fine improvised header.

Right-back Hector Bellerin knows what it takes to make the jump from the academy to the first team, and he believes Smith-Rowe could join him in making the step up.

"Then they are improving every day in the training sessions". For me, I want him to stay with us, to work with us, to give the team the big performances with his quality.
