Arsenal host Wolfsburg in the second game of the Emirates Cup on 26 July as they look to reclaim their title after 2010.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 4.20pm BST. Live coverage of the game will be on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 1 HD.


Arsenal prepare to play their second Emirates Cup game in as many days when they take on last season's Bundesliga runners-up Wolfsburg.

The Gunners are coming on the back of a destructive performance against Lyon, where they scored six goals against the Ligue 1 runners-up, with six different players getting on the score sheet for the north London club.

It was a brilliant performance by the midfield trio of Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, with their quick passing and blistering counter attacks. The rest of the squad ably supported them during the entire game.

Senior stars Jack Wilshere and Petr Cech missed out on game time, but Arsene Wenger has indicated they will both start in the game against the German club.

Meanwhile, Wolfsburg come into this game on the back of a defeat against Spanish club Villarreal and will look to get back to winning ways against the hosts.

Kevin De Bruyne could be handed a rest after an intense game on Saturday (25 July), while Andre Schurrle could start after playing 45 minutes against the La Liga side.

What managers say

Arsene Wenger: "It will be a similar game again with a team who has good quality, They are one of the top teams in Germany and they are fighting against Bayern, and may even be at the same level. It will be a good test again."
