MK Dons vs Arsenal LIVE!

The Gunners warmed up for this weekend’s Community Shield clash against Liverpool with a comfortable 4-1 pre-season friendly victory over third-tier opponents on Tuesday evening.

Mikel Arteta’s FA Cup winners are back at Wembley on Saturday and the Spaniard will be pleased to have seen his side get a win under their belts in the build-up to that contest

Arsenal fielded a strong starting XI – featuring the likes of Bernd Leno, William Saliba and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – with a youthful bench at Stadium MK and opened the scoring inside five minutes when a mistake from MK Dons goalkeeper Lee Nicholls allowed Mohamed Elneny to fire home from distance.

Nketiah soon doubled that early advantage after good work from Cedric Soares and an incisive Bukayo Saka cut-back, but the hosts were still in the match at half-time after Rob Holding accidentally headed Regan Poole’s cross beyond Leno and into his own net.

The second half often lacked fluency due to the number of changes made by both sides, but Arsenal pulled away late on as teenage defender Mark McGuinness headed home from a corner and Reiss Nelson netted from the penalty spot.
