Arsenal will be taking on French side Lyon in the Dubai Super Cup match on Thursday. The mid-season friendly will give both managers an opportunity to get their players’ match fitness and sharpness levels up. There will also be AC Milan and Liverpool in the friendly tournament. Not to mention that Arsenal have seen a lot of their players travel to Qatar for the World Cup with their respective national teams. Hence, the mid-season friendlies will provide the fringe players and academy players an opportunity to get much-needed game time.

The Gunners are in excellent form in the Premier League this season. They are deservedly at the top spot with 37 points from 14 games. Barring an early EFL Cup exit to Brighton & Hove Albion, Mikel Arteta’s side have been terrific this campaign. They will hope the mid-season break allows them to recharge their batteries and come back stronger in the second half of the campaign. Meanwhile, Lyon have been inconsistent with their results this season. They are sitting eighth in the Ligue 1 table with 21 points from 15 games.
