Arsenal boss Emery played Ozil, Mustafi in Reading friendly

Arsenal boss Unai Emery fielded a strong XI for Tuesday's friendly with Reading.

The match was Mark Bowen's first as new Royals manager.

The game finished 2-2, with Sam Baldock netting both of Royals' goals.

The former Brighton man had given Reading the lead, before an Arsenal team - which included senior pros Mesut Ozil, Ashley Maitland-Niles, Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi - hit back.

Baldock had the last laugh though as he claimed his second goal to earn Royals a draw.
