Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has credited his players for keeping focus during their pre-season win over Singha All Star XI.
The Gunners reached the final of the Premier League Asia Trophy in Singapore on Wednesday thanks to a 4-0 victory over the hosts.
With the match taking place in sweltering conditions, Wenger believes that his players got a "good workout" against tough opposition.
"Overall it was a positive game because we had a good resistance in the first game," he told the club's official website. "We were tested against a very resilient, very dynamic, very mobile and a team with a good collective attitude. We were tested and we had to play with pace.
"Overall I liked the fact that we kept a good team focus and as well that individually, every player had to dig deep. We suffered a little bit to get a good workout."
Arsenal will play Everton in the final of the Premier League Asia Trophy on Saturday.
