Both Celtic and Lyon are currently ahead of Arsenal and Milan in the tournament which rewards 1 point for each goal scored. So, Celtic and Lyon currently have 3 points each, while Arsenal and Milan are 1 point behind.

However, Saturday’s double-header could bring a change in the point table. Before the Arsenal-Celtic match, AC Milan would face Lyon in the first match of the day. So, the Gunners and their Scottish opponent would have a clear idea about what they would require to clinch the Emirates Cup 2010 title.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who is missing a number of key first team players like Cesc Fabregas in this home tournament, must be happy with the performance of his youthful side. Though the Gunners failed to hold on to the lead earned through a first half strike from new signing Marouane Chamakh, the hosts played much better than their Italian opponent.

As expected, Wenger featured some of his fringe players including Kieran Gibbs, Jack Wilshere, Emmanuel Frimpong and injury-prone midfielder Tomas Rosicky in the starting line up against AC Milan. Two new signings: striker Marouane Chamakh and defender Laurent Koscielny- played their first competitive match in Arsenal shirt and the home crowd got to see the glimpse of the two for the first time.

Most importantly, all of them were impressive and it must have definitely pleased the manager. Chamakh scored the winner after being set up by Arshavin in the 36th minute, while Koscielny showed his attacking intent by going forward very often without interrupting his defensive works.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon also has a number of reasons to be happy with his players following their come-from-back draw against Lyon. The Scottish side showed their ‘never give-up’ mentality and the result would boost up their confidence level ahead of the match against Arsenal.

Celtic conceded two goals within first 54 minutes of the game and was 2-0 down until 82nd minute when Gary Hooper scored. Just seven minutes later, Greek striker Georgios Samaras earned Celtic the equalizer.

Both sides would like to win the match, and thus, strengthening their chances of winning the title. Celtic would be motivated to put on better display, while Wenger’s side would give their best to defend the title successfully. Overall, there are all the elements present in this showdown to entertain the crowd.
