“It was a great goal which started with Joe Willock,” reflected Arsene Wenger on arsenal.com.
“After that, Alex Iwobi gave a good ball to Aaron. Aaron produced a great cross and Iwobi got on the end of it. It was a great goal to score and overall it’s good for the confidence to win games in pre-season.”
Wenger went on to praise the overall performance of his players in the game against the Bundesliga champions.
“We are here to prepare,” said Wenger. “Not everything was perfect, but we have to push ourselves because in the last two days we have done it. I expected the game to be even more difficult for us physically, but many of the players are already in good shape.”
Arsenal's next pre-season game is against Chelsea in Beijing on Saturday.
