Arsenal vs Sevilla LIVE! Emirates Cup match stream, latest score and goal updates today

Arsenal are closing their pre-season duties back on home soil with an Emirates Cup clash in north London this afternoon. The Gunners saw their summer record end 100 per cent in a closed-door friendly defeat to Brentford in the midweek, but Mikel Arteta’s side still look good for the new Premier League campaign.

Buoyed by the goals of new signing Gabriel Jesus, Arsenal made a huge impression on their tour of the United States, following their high-scoring defeat of Nuremberg by beating London rivals Chelsea 4-0 to win the Florida Cup after previous victories over Everton and Orlando City. They hope to win again today and keep confidence high with their trip to Crystal Palace which looms large on Friday night.

Looking to disrupt Arteta’s preparations with a Sevilla side who finished fourth in LaLiga last season, but have since lost the likes of Jules Kunde and Diego Carlos. Julen Lopetegui’s men drew with Tottenham earlier this month and have since eliminated Sporting Lisbon and Angers. Follow the Emirates Cup livestream with Standard Sport below!

Sevilla makes seven changes

Sevilla have made seven changes to the side that defeated French team Angers 6-0 in Portugal earlier this week.

Only Karim Rekik, Marcos Acuna, Tecatito and Youssef En-Nesyri will keep their starting berths.

Rafa Mir misses as expected due to an injury, while Marcao is not in the match selection.


Reye’s tribute

Both sides pay tribute to the late Jose Antonio Reyes at the Emirates today.

The former Arsenal and Sevilla striker died tragically in a car accident in June 2019, aged just 35.

Reyes’ No9 shirt hangs in the locker rooms, while there’s a minute of applause in the ninth minute of the match.


Sevilla team news

Start XI: Bono, Jesus Navas, Jose Angel, Rekik, Acuna, Fernando, Oliver Torres, Rakitic, Lamela, Tecatito, En-Nesyri


Arsenal name the same team that beat Chelsea

Mikel Arteta mentions the same Arsenal team that started Chelsea’s shock in Orlando last weekend.

Gabriel Jesus is fit to lead after the knock he was substituted in that match, but there is still no Kieran Tierney, Takehiro Tomiyasu or Emile Smith Rowe in the match roster.

Fabio Vieira is also still absent with a foot problem.

Official team news from Arsenal is expected very soon. Stay tuned!


BREAKING: Arsenal appoint Odegaard as new captain

Arsenal have officially appointed Martin Odegaard as their new first team captain ahead of the 2022/23 Premier League campaign.

The Gunners made the announcement for their last friendly of an encouraging summer against Sevilla in the Emirates Cup on Saturday.

Odegaard, a popular and influential first-team member of Mikel Arteta who previously wore the captain’s armband, succeeds Alexandre Lacazette, who left Arsenal at the end of his contract to return to former club Lyon this summer on a free transfer.

Lacazette had been appointed as a temporary replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who had lost his captaincy for disciplinary reasons before his contract was finally terminated by mutual consent before moving to Barcelona in February.

Odegaard, who is only 23, is well versed in leading teams, having captained his native Norway since March 2021.

Tavares leaves Arsenal for Marseille loan

One player who will not play for Arsenal today is Nuno Tavares.

The Gunners have confirmed in recent minutes that the Portuguese fullback has completed his proposed transfer to Marseille.

Tavares will return, however, with no permanent deal option included in the deal.

It’s a well-trodden path from Arsenal to Marseille, with William Saliba and Matteo Guendouzi taking similar steps in recent years.


How can Arsenal position themselves?

Official team news coming soon, but here’s a look at how Arsenal could be lining up today with that Premier League curtain-raiser against Crystal Palace fast approaching…

Predicted XI: Ramsdale; Cedric, White, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Elneny, Odegaard; Saka, Jesus, Martinelli


Arsenal vs Sevilla Prediction

There is a lot of positivity at Arsenal heading into the new campaign and the first and only pre-season game in the Emirates gives the players a chance to shine for home support.

The front line looked particularly impressive during the US tour and if it stays that way against Sevilla, the goals will likely be flowing again.

Arsenal win 3-0.
