Arsene Wenger says Alexis Sanchez is staying at Arsenal

Then came a blizzard of changes, with Walcott going off to a hero's welcome and replaced by Lacazette, whose arrival was also warmly greeted.

But Sevilla failed to add a third and Arsenal's rout of Benfica was enough to secure a second pre-season tournament title for Wenger's side after their previous success at the International Champions Cup.

The prolific forward was given an extended break following his involvement at the Confederations Cup but is now heading back to London and will resume training this weekend alongside Shkodran Mustafi who was in part of the Confed Cup winning Germany team.

In the early game, Leipzig beat Benfica 2-0 thanks to goals from Marcel Halstenberg and Marvin Compper. Their late arrivals to pre season were due to their time in the European U21 Championships.

The reason for this was because the Emirates Cup has a special rule where a team gets a point for every goal they score, which promotes positive and attacking football.

Lacazette fired straight at Soria just before the hour mark but he finally found the back of the net shortly after, turning home Oxlade-Chamberlain's low cross at the far post after Welbeck's flick.

Reince Priebus, shortest-serving chief of staff in White House history
Sanders said the White House would continue to have good relations with the Republican Party, despite Priebus' ouster. The deputy of General John Kelly named Elaine Duke will be the Department of Homeland Security's acting head.

Steven N'Zonzi's long-range victor secured victory for Sevilla after Alexandre Lacazette's equaliser had cancelled out Joaquin Correa's opener.

Alexandre Lacazette says he has entered "a new world" since arriving at Arsenal but excited about his first season in the Premier League.

He said: "Arsene Wenger says he is determined not to sell him, but he seems determined to leave". The Chilean is consistently one of Arsenal's hardest working players on the pitch and there is no suggestion the striker will miss training on Sunday, however the timing of the post has raised a few eyebrows.

"We want to test ourselves against big teams and if we play against strong opponents where we can show what we can do, it does the team good", he told Arsenal Player.

Speaking to 24 Horas in Chile, Bravo is quoted as saying today, "If he decides to go, we'll wait for him with open arms at City".
