Arsene Wenger pleased with Arsenal focus during pre-season win

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger praises his team for keeping their concentration to beat Singha All Star XI in Singapore.

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.
