Nico Yennaris captained Brentford at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday as his side faced Arsenal in the third-round of the Carabao Cup, 18 years after being a mascot for the Gunners.

Holding was handed his first start of the season during Arsenal's Europa League opener at home to Vorskla Poltava before being brought on for the injured Sokratis Papastathopoulos to make his first Premier League appearance of the season in the 2-0 win against Everton.

The Gunners needed to control the match in the latter stages and they did just that but made sure of the points in stoppage time when substitute Alexandre Lacazette burst clear to make it 3-1. Meanwhile, Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have been rested completely by Emery. "We hope to see a lot more of him in the first team". The Spaniard said, via Londonfootballnews.co.uk: "We need every player when chances and opportunities are coming, because we need to also take more players to play". But also I want another [strong] player on the bench.

Welbeck scored twice at the Emirates, before a 58-minute free kick from Alan Judge reduced the tally.

The Niners struggled with Beathard and Brian Hoyer last season before the midseason addition of Garoppolo changed their fortunes. The 49ers have also reached out to Matt Moore. "That's what I said a year ago and it's the same situation now", Shanahan said.

Emery wouldn't be drawn on Welbeck's contract situation, though.

He continued: "There are three things when we are speaking about an individual. There's the club, the player and the team, and my focus is the team", he added. I know they are in the past year of their contract with the team, and they are working and speaking with the club.

"Every player's future is important".

"But the performance and the commitment is very high".
