Arsenal have a lot of interesting young players on the books at the moment. None of them are more exciting than Matteo Guendouzi, though, the 19-year-old midfield man has enjoyed an incredible pre-season and will be hoping he can make the breakthrough and become a regular this season.
Who would you like Emery to give a first team chance to, due to impressive performances in pre-season?

He’s not the only one hoping to become a regular, though, as a lot of the fans have been mesmerised by his pre-season displays and are demanding that the young Frenchman gets given his chance in the Premier League this campaign. At the age of just 19, there’s plenty of time for Guendouzi to grow into a starting role at Arsenal but for now, it looks like Granit Xhaka, Aaron Ramsey and Lucas Torreira will be ahead of him.
Guendouzi isn’t the only youngster who the fans want to see, and honourable mentions must go to Emile Smith-Rowe and Reiss Nelson, who have also been touted with having huge futures at The Emirates. Overall, though, it is the Frenchman who is being hyped by the Gunners with his neat passing and ability to keep the ball and dictate the tempo making him a player that the fans want to see in the middle of the park week in week out.
