Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that Saturday's friendly against Manchester City will provide his side with a tough test before next weekend's Premier League opener.

The Gunners face City in Helsinki in what is their final warm-up fixture of the summer.

"For us it's a good opportunity to play against Man City," Wenger told the club's official website. "What is important is to have a good competition level one week before the season starts.

"Ideally, it's always better not to travel too much but we travelled in fantastic conditions and we cannot complain. We are happy to come to Helsinki and play this kind of game."

Arsenal start the new Premier League season at home to Aston Villa on August 17.
