Just in case anyone was in any doubt, it looks as if Emiliano Martinez is set to start in our pre-season clash against RC Lens.
The 23-year-old has only ever made four Premier League starts for Arsenal’s senior team and those all came in 2014 when Wojciech Szczesny injured his hip against Manchester United.
However, the Argentine has hinted pretty heavily via his social media that he’s going to get the nod for our match against Lens. Either that or he’s been grossly misinformed…

With Petr Cech not quite ready to return after his involvement in Euro 2016 and our other youth goalkeeper, Matt Macey, slightly less experienced, it’s entirely logical that Emi will be starting but, you know, this is Arsenal Football Club…let’s not rule Bob Wilson showing up.
