Emiliano played 45 minutes of Arsenal’s 4-0 win against a Singapore Select XI before keeping a clean sheet in their Emirates Cup victory against Lyon.


Emiliano was an unused substitute for all six of Arsenal's August fixtures.


Emi made his Champions League debut in October when he replaced the suspended Wojciech Szczesny and injured David Ospina in goal against Anderlecht. “It was brilliant,” Emi said after the 2-1 vicory. “I think I made two good saves, I was solid and I felt confident. That's what I needed. If you're not confident, you won't get anything.”


Emi played twice at the start of December and kept a clean sheet against Southampton, again proving a capable deputy for the injured Wojciech Szczesny. Arsene Wenger also named the young goalkeeper on his bench for three more games.


Emi did not feature for the first team in January but was named on Arsene Wenger’s bench for the FA Cup fourth-round win at Brighton & Hove Albion.


Emi did not feature for the first team in February but was on the bench for the 2-0 win against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup.


Emiliano did not feature for the first team in May.
