Well, that would have been an interesting start to the match. https://t.co/2tnLCjCWo2— Cork Gaines (@CorkGaines) August 19, 2014
Wojciech Szczesny's face nearly got very, very red.
Arsenal face Besiktas in a crucial Champions League qualifier in Turkey, and their start was nearly a complete, embarrassing disaster.
Demba Ba, a former Premier League adversary of Arsenal's, took the opening kick-off and lashed a shot from midfield that required a strong effort from Szczesny to keep the ball out of the net.
