Arsenal play their first pre-season game against Singapore XI on Wednesday, and the boss has confirmed that the team will most likely include the players who started training at the beginning of last week.
“In the first game, we’ll have the players who have come in last Monday,” Wenger told Arsenal Player.
“We’ll have a very strong team.”
