Inside Arsenal’s in-depth pre-season medical testing as Emery gets his troops ready – The Sun

ARSENAL have shared a video showing just how hard the squad are working a bid to improve on their sub-par 2018-19 campaign.

In Unai Emery's first season in charge, the Gunners failed to make the top four and lost the Europa League final.

While not dreadful on paper, the torrid run to end the season left fans as frustrated as they ever were under Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal won just one of their last five Premier League games, losing three of those against Crystal Palace, Wolves and Leicester.

But now, Gunners officials have shared an in-depth clip of their stars in action in a gruelling pre-season regime.

Star forwards Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette were all seen putting in the hard graft – doing box jumps and heavily-weighted leg presses.


Arsenal players were also seen putting a keen focus on strengthening their core – all the while being tracked using futuristic technology.

The Gunners stars also worked on their reach and did some pull-ups in the gut-busting workout at London Colney.

More good news for Arsenal fans, though, was the appearance of Hector Bellerin – who is hoping to return to action in September.

The Spanish full-back, 24, hasn't played for the club since January after suffering a rupture of his cruciate ligament (knee).

Mesut Ozil was another star spotted in the video as he did some core strengthening work.

Many fans believe the German playmaker may be on his way out of the club this summer after a dreadful 2018-19 by his high standards.

But for now, it appears is Ozil is fighting tooth and nail to work his way back into Emery's plans for pre-season – with their next game against Colorado Rapids in the US next Tuesday.
