Our first team players took to their various social media accounts to thank our fans in Singapore for their support over the past week.
The players participated in various events while in Singapore, including mingling with the thousands of fans we have in the country. Preparation was the aim of the game however, and our performances over the two games have been impressive.
With almost all the squad available for selection, the competition for places seems to have intensified training without the need for competitive games.
Arsenal transfer news
We saw Petr Cech make his debut while a number of youngsters also showed that they have the potential to make it as first team regulars at our club.
Arsene Wenger summed up the trip in his post-match briefings following our 3-1 victory against Everton.
- Arsenal reportedly weighing up prospect of re-signing in-form goalscorer
- Recently departed Arsenal star reveals he’s living his ‘dream’ at new club
- Mesut Ozil remains defiant over future but slams Arsenal for lack of loyalty
“For us it was a perfect trip because we had fantastic conditions, fantastic fans in the hotel every day and overall we came here with 27 players, we had two convincing games with no injury after a week, so that’s fantastic,” Wenger was quoted as saying (via Arsenal Player).
The rest of our first team squad obviously shared the manager’s thoughts and below we have compiled the best messages from the player’s accounts.
With the focus now on the Emirates Cup, the start of the new campaign is edging closer.
