Arsenal started their pre-season fixtures schedule with a 4-2 comeback win over Nuremburg in Germany. The Gunners were using this match as preparation ahead of their Premier League opener against Crystal Palace on the 5th of August.
Mikel Arteta started a relatively young team for this match and the lack of rhythm in their pay was there to see especially in the opening half hour.
This rustiness was punished with two quick fire goals in the space of five minutes. First, Kieran Tierney lost the ball and the Germans worked it to Johannes Geis who fired in a shot from the edge of the box for the opener in the 24th minute.
Five Minutes later, Sambi Lokonga lost the ball in midfield and Kwadwo Duah capitalized with a low shot into the bottom corner.
Arteta made a host of changes at halftime and one of them was star striker Gabriel Jesus who joined the club last week from Manchester City. The Brazilian wasted no time as he picked up the ball before feeding Nketiah who inturn fed Jesus back to score his first Arsenal goal 90 seconds after coming on.

It was 2-2 minutes later when Mohamed Elneny smacked in a shot from a long way out that the Nuremburg keeper had no chance of saving.
An own goal from Schindler gave Arsenal the lead as he turned in a cross from Gabriel Martinelli under pressure from Jesus. Another own goal made it 4-2 in Arsenal's favor before the hosts immediately pulled one back through Lucas L. Schleimer in the 73rd minute.
Gabriel Jesus finished off his impressive debut by scoring his second. This time he flicked in a cross from Gabriel Martinelli to give the Arsenal fans a glimpse of what to expect in the coming season.
The Gunners will now fly to the Unites States where they will face fellow Premier League Side Everton on Saturday July 16.
