Arsenal fans have a chance to watch their side in action this afternoon, as the Gunners take on a Singapore Select XI as their pre-season campaign gathers pace.

The Gunners were arguably the in-form team in England towards the end of last season and while this match is low on the priority list, manager Arsene Wenger will stress that it’s a chance for the squad to maintain that momentum with the start of the season now under one month away.

There should be plenty of chances over the course of the game for a variety of players, which provides a platform to grab the attention of the boss and excel in terms of quality and fitness ahead of more serious games.

Wenger can also experiment with slightly less pressure than would normally be the case, trying out various ideas he may have been working on since the players got back together.
