"I think Aaron is an important player for us", Emery said during his post-game news conference.

The 53 year-old has struggled to become a favourite with the fans at the Emirates after failing to meet promises.

"Today I am very happy with his work on the pitch, but not only today". They (the reserves) know Koke and the rest (of the World Cup players) will join training on Aug 6.

Luciano Vietto put Atletico Madrid who were without the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Diego Godin and José Gimenez ahead in the 41st minute.

Simeone will again give some of his youngsters a chance to shine in Monday's ICC meeting with Paris Saint-Germain in Singapore, with more senior stars available for the meeting with Inter Milan back at Atletico's Wanda Metropolitano on Aug 11. His performance is also very good at each training session. 17-year old Emile Smith Rowe scored this super sliding goal with his right foot, putting it in the top corner. "Very young kids, but we have been working with them these days to integrate them into a group which has been working together for seven years, with a very strong defensive structure". History has showed that Arsenal always gave opportunities to young players.
