Arsenal fans have every reason to actually be excited about a pre-season tournament this weekend, shock horror. The Emirates Cup has never before featured so many new signings and should provide a very different atmosphere at the Emirates to last season's showing, which saw Gunners fans given every reason to moan about a lack of new additions as arch nemesis Didier Drogba did the business for holders Galatasaray.

This weekend's seventh instalment of the Arsenal money-spinner could provides Wenger with the chance to give four summer signings their first game in red and white, including Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy, Calum Chambers and Joel Campbell.

Colombian goalkeeper David Opsina won't feature due to a slight thigh problem, but regardless there's plenty of positives for Arsenal fans to savour as Wenger looks to keep momentum from that FA Cup victory high heading into the new campaign.

Monaco, Valencia and Benfica are visitors with their own agendas and have enough quality to follow Drogba's example and make a mark on the tournament, with two new managers also getting a chance to check out returning World Cup stars in their squad for the first time.

Valencia have Nuno looking to make his mark, while a fellow Liga Sagres graduate in Leonardo Jardim is under pressure to prove Monaco can cope with the loss of James Rodriguez under his guidance.

It's all shaping up to be above the normal fare offered out in pre-season, so here are five reasons why its worth turning on the television to see Arsenal step up their preparations for a Premier League season which quite incredibly gets going again in a fortnight's time.
