The Gunners won the pre-season friendly tournament earlier today, leading the former Manchester United, Liverpool and Newcastle United striker to express his admiration.
Some real positives for Arsenal this weekend. Looking forward to Sunday and The Community Shield. https://t.co/HUyeFuLe5J— michael owen (@themichaelowen) July 26, 2015
Pre-season is not everything
While one has to admit that Arsenal were truly brilliant in the Emirates Cup, it must be kept in mind that this was only a pre-season friendly tournament.
The Gunners need to take this form into the upcoming 2015-16 campaign and build on it, or else the Emirates Cup triumph will mean nothing.
Arsenal have often started seasons poorly, and that has been a major factor in them not being able to challenge for the Premier League title.
Fans of the North London outfit will hope that history does not repeat itself, and that Arsene Wenger’s side reclaim the title they last won in 2004.
