Five things we witnessed from Arsenal’s Training session including Havertz’s position

The vast majority of Arsenal’s playing roster is currently participating in preseason workouts, where they are being put through their paces by head coach Mikel Arteta amid the scorching heat of the summer.

The Gunners are presently in Germany in preparation for their upcoming match against FC Nurnberg, which will be their first friendly of the summer. As a result of this matchup, Arsenal supporters will have the opportunity to see at least one of their club’s newly acquired players, Kai Havertz, for the first time. At the same time, the game will give the team’s regulars the chance to get some additional playing time under their belts.

The social media staff at Arsenal is also hard at work, as evidenced by the fact that they have produced the first ‘inside training’ film of the new season. As we get a first glimpse at some of Arteta’s intentions for the forthcoming season, Mirror Football has identified a number of things that supporters may take away from the video.
The new part that Tomiyasu plays

Takehiro Tomiyasu is more comfortable playing on the right side of the defense, but he has frequently been used in left-back positions when the situation has called for it.

If what you see in this video is any indication, he might be appearing there much more frequently in the near future. Tomiyasu, a Japanese international player, turned in a magnificent performance at left back against Liverpool in the previous season. Perhaps with that game in mind, the manager of Arsenal is eager to see more of Tomiyasu playing in that position.

Instead of showing footage of the team’s first-choice left back Zinchenko, the video focuses on Tomiyasu manning the left side of the defense and receiving plaudits from his manager as a result of his performance.

A preliminary glance at Havertz


Fans got their first look at the German international in the video, and the sight of the former Chelsea player with the cannon emblazoned across his chest still need some getting used to for Arsenal supporters. Kai Havertz appeared to be in good shape during Arsenal’s training session.

Havertz spent the majority of the previous season in west London playing the role of a false nine for the majority of the season, but there is still some discussion among Arsenal fans as to where Arteta will try to employ Havertz.

However, there is a growing idea that the 24-year-old might be utilised as a replacement for Granit Xhaka in the heart of Arsenal’s midfield alongside club captain Martin Odegaard and Declan Rice, whose move is anticipated to be revealed imminently. Martin Odegaard and Declan Rice are both set to move in the near future.

Arteta’s still got it


Even if Arteta proved to his detractors that he is capable of competing at an elite level of management during the previous season, his technical skill, which helped him become such a good player, has not diminished in the least.

The manager of Arsenal is seen early on in the film engaging in a game of no bounce with members of his staff and the captain of the team, Odegaard.

When going head-to-head with one of the league’s most brilliant technicians, Odegaard, the manager of the Arsenal team displayed some stylish flair and subtle touches. The Gunners manager was a midfielder himself back in his playing days.

Vieira’s gaffe


Fabio Vieira has struggled at Arsenal since signing there for a fee of £35 million last summer. He will need to make a significant improvement this season in order to impress the large number of Gunners fans who are still debating whether or not he was worth such a fee.

On the other hand, as this video demonstrates, his pre-season hasn’t exactly gotten off to a strong start. After getting a young player from the academy into difficulty by playing a terrible pass into their feet, Arteta yelled an order in the direction of Vieira to make sure that he takes the lesson to heart and stops making the same error in the future.

Despite the fact that Arteta has publicly praised the former Porto star, it is very evident that he has no qualms about correcting Vieira when they are on the training field together.

Team Spirit
The current group of Arsenal players appears to be the happiest they’ve been in quite some time, and what’s even more apparent is the manner that fresh players have been able to integrate themselves into the team so easily.

Havertz is already all smiles, laughing and joking with players such as Reiss Nelson, Mohamed Elneny, and Jorginho, who was a teammate of his at Chelsea in the past. This is obviously encouraging news for Arteta and his goals with Arsenal for the upcoming season.
