Hibernian 2-1 Arsenal: Gunners lose pre-season opener (Watch video)

Full-time: Hibernian 2-1 Arsenal

Arsenal’s opening preseason match of the summer ended in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Scottish side Hibernian at Easter Road.

Mikel Arteta had a relatively strong crop of players to choose from for the time of year, with captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leading a side that included nine players who made first-team appearances last season, while the likes of Nicolas Pepe, Alexandre Lacazette and Hector Bellerin were among the substitutes.

Hibs took the lead on 21 minutes after Martin Boyle capitalised on an error from young goalkeeper Arthur Okonwo, who has recently been promoted to the first team.

Arteta rotated heavily as the game wore on but Daniel MacKay extended the home side’s advantage with a header before Pepe missed a penalty that he had won himself.
