The boys were in Emirates Cup action at the weekend as their pre-season campaign starts to gather pace with the new season less than two weeks away.

First up was an entertaining 5-1 win against Benfica with Yaya scoring an incredible four goals while Joel also scored his first goal for the club.

The lads found it tougher going on Sunday as a stubborn Monaco side held out for a 1-0 win after Radamel Falcao's first-half header.
