Arsenal friendly details as behind-closed-doors game kept shrouded in secrecy

Arsenal warmed up for the new Premier League season with a 4-3 win over QPR on Tuesday afternoon- in a game shrouded in secrecy.

The Gunners prevailed at London Colney in a behind-closed-doors game just three days after beating Liverpool on penalties to lift the Community Shield at Wembley.

Details were released by the Championship side as they revealed they took the lead via a stunning strike from Ossie Kakay.

Arsenal then raced into a 3-1 lead before Bright Osayi-Samuel scored and Todd Kane equalised from long range only for Arsenal to grab a late winner.

But Arsenal requested the game was not available for streaming and have not publicised any details regarding the game.

Young midfielder Miguel Azeez seemed to let slip his involvement in the game by posting a picture of his shirt on social media.

Speculation on Twitter has claimed that Emile Smith Rowe scored and provided an assist with Tyreece John-Jules, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the other goalscorers.

But those reports are unconfirmed with Football.London revealing that the Arsenal team was made up of a mixture of first-team and Under-23 players.

Speaking after the match, QPR boss Mark Warburton said: “This was a really useful workout for both teams, and I would like to express my thanks to everyone at Arsenal for their hospitality.

“The application of the players was excellent and I was really pleased with the way we moved the ball against world-class opposition, and created chances.

“To have this sort of test is useful for the players because it tests them from a physical and tactical perspective.”
