Arsenal fans will be furious if the Gunners don’t win their first Emirates Cup in four years on Sunday.
After hammering Lyon 6-0 on Saturday, the Gunners top the mini table with a whopping nine points – three for their win and one for each goal.

However, Arsene Wenger and his men need only to look back to last year’s tournament to remind themselves how a big victory in one game is not always enough.
The Gunners kicked off the 2014 Emirates Cup with a 5-1 annihilation of Benfica, but a 1-0 defeat to AS Monaco a day later saw the hosts pipped to the title by Valencia.
Nevertheless, Arsenal begin Sunday as big favourites to lift their second piece of preseason silverware, following on from their success in Singapore last weekend.

In fact, if Villarreal fail to beat Lyon and score at least two goals in the process, the only thing that could prevent Arsenal winning the Emirates Cup would be a defeat by five goals or more to Wolfsburg.
Arsenal boss Wenger is expected to make wholesale changes to his starting XI following Saturday’s exertions.

The biggest name on the Wolfsburg teamsheet, as far as Arsenal eyes are concerned, will be Nicklas Bendtner, who is unlikely to play the full 90 minutes due to his poor fitness level.
