It shows fans key flashpoints, including the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, manager Mikel Arteta‘s passionate team talks, exclusive interviews with players and much more.

The series lasts eight episodes, with the latest, which drops on Thursday, capturing a highly tense moment during one of the final training sessions of the season.

Lacazette, Cedric involved in training ground incident

At the end of the last season, Arsenal were battling to maintain their grip on the fourth and final Champions League spot.

In the space of a month between mid-March and mid-April, the Gunners lost four out of five Premier League games. That allowed North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur to catch up.

One of those defeats was a damaging 2-1 home loss against Brighton, whilst Arteta’s side also dropped points against Liverpool, Crystal Palace and Southampton.

The pressure, therefore, was very much on – and it boiled over during one training session.

The incident occurred, as reported by the Daily Mail, after Lacazette was on the end of a hard but fair tackle by youth team player, Jack Henry-Francis.

Lacazette didn’t react well, which prompted a scuffle between the Frenchman and defender Cedric Soares. Lacazette then pulls the Portuguese man around, before grabbing his face. He then dug his fingers in Cedric’s cheek.

The Amazon Prime trailer captures Arteta, his coaching staff, and several senior players intervening in attempts to pull the two players away.

Luckily, there appeared to be no lasting damage done. Lacazette told Amazon Prime: “If you have players who want to win, it’s normal. If you have players who don’t care, it would never happen.

“When we came back in the dressing room, I came back to say sorry. Because, sometimes, you just become crazy. It’s just passion to win.”

You can see more of the incident on the newest episodes of Arsenal: All or Nothing. They will be released this Thursday on Amazon Prime Video.
