Arsenal boosted their confidence tremendously after comfortably beating Manchester City 3-1 in Helsinki.

Aaron Ramsey scored one goal and assisted another, while Theo Walcott found the back of the net once and assisted two more. Manchester City were far from poor, but the Gunners' overall combination of aggressiveness and quality was simply too potent for a side that is certainly one of Europe's best.

Ultimately, both sides received a very valuable tune-up exactly one week before the commencement of the new Premier League season.
