The next three friendlies for Arsenal, including two more International Champions Cup ties, will be ideal preparation ahead of their difficult start to the Premier League season, as well as life after Arsene Wenger. Unai Emery, his successor that joined from Paris Saint-Germain, has been active in the transfer market, adding five new players to his squad and has proven that he is capable of making bold decisions by allowing Jack Wilshere to depart at the expiry of his contract to join West Ham United.
With games against the champions Manchester City and then Chelsea to start their Premier League season, it is of upmost importance that the Gunners find a settled line-up and way of playing as soon as possible if they are to challenge for the title, or at least a return to the Champions League.
Emery’s former club, meanwhile, are now managed by Thomas Tuchel, the highly-rated former Borussia Dortmund coach. The German will be tasked with winning the club’s first Champions League trophy after disappointing showings in recent campaigns, while retaining Ligue 1 is a prerequisite for any incumbent given the strength of the squad at their disposal.
Their opening ICC game was a 3-1 reverse against Bayern Munich, a fixture that saw Gianluigi Buffon make his debut but was otherwise unrecognisable from the team that will play the majority of competitive games. However, Tuchel has a stronger squad for the game in Singapore against Arsenal with Julian Draxler and Marco Verratti possible starters.
