The Gunners drew 1-1 with Bayern Munich on Wednesday before beating the Bundesliga champions on penalties. Martinez, a late replacement for Cech, saved two of the Bayern kicks.

Both teams made a numerous amount of changes as the Bavarian brought on their on-loan forward James Rodriguez. The match official pointed to the spot and Lewandowski converted with conviction.

In such a scenario, SportBild have claimed that the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal, Juventus and Chelsea are interested in signing the star, who played a pivotal role in helping Germany win the World Cup. This was the first real test of quality for the Gunners of the summer, facing a Bayern Munich team that have only strengthened since their 10-2 humiliation of their North London rivals in the Champions League last season.

The Bavarians thought they had doubled their lead after 20 minutes, but new signing Corentin Tolisso's goal was flagged offside.

This marks the first time Arsenal has crapped its trousers against Bayern Munich since last season's Champions League knockout round.

Per Mertesacker and Olivier Giroud both had to skip the Bayern game because of food poisoning, while Wenger said Sead Kolasinac, Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey all felt ill during the match. At 35-years-old, Petr Cech is one of the most decorated footballers in the game and a consummate professional, yet mistakes which crept into his game last season can not be overlooked. In the 94th minute, the Nigerian worldwide Iwobi equalized for Arsenal after heading in the ball past Fruchtl and sent the match to penalties. "Iwobi equalises in injury time, penalties to follow". Martinez, on in the second half for Cech seized his chance, stopping David Alaba's effort and then, after Iwobi had put Arsenal 3-2 in front, foiling Bernat.

The Gunners will hope they can recover in time to face Chelsea in Beijing in their next warm-up game at the weekend, while Bayern play AC Milan in Shenzhen.
