Emile Smith Rowe did score a goal for the Emirates club.

“Well, I’m always disappointed when we lose a football match, but it is the first game, we played with many kids and we only had four training sessions,” Arteta said at his post-match press conference.

“We’ve trained really hard and you could see that the players were a little bit leggy. I think we conceded the first goal, an accident, and the second goal was clearly offside. We created many, many chances, but we didn’t score.
