Arsenal beat Paris Saint-Germain 5-1, and following the pre-season game, Thomas Tuchel issued a pretty brutal post-match interview.
A weakened PSG team endured defeat in Singapore as Arsenal thumped their French counterparts in the International Champions Cup.
Mesut Ozil not only skippered his side but also opened the scoring.
Alexandre Lacazette, who was left out of Didier Deschamps’ World Cup squad, bagged a brace with defender Rob Holding and budding youngster Eddie Nketiah also getting on the score-sheet.
Unai Emery was able to field a fairly strong side including the likes of the aforementioned Ozil and Lacazette.
Unlike PSG whose World Cup stars remain on a break.
Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Edinson Cavani, among others, have yet to report for club duty.
And Tuchel was asked by a reporter if his team missed those players to which he replied by saying: “Yes — clearly. I think they are playing in the Europa League this season, right?”
