Arsenal came from behind to beat Al Nasr 3-2 in a friendly in Dubai.
Unai Emery has taken his Gunners squad to the UAE for a mid-season training camp.
The Spaniard named a mixture of youth and experience in his line-up, with Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette, who both played for more than an hour, among the regular first-teamers involved.
Denis Suarez also got a rare start in the red and white and was given the full 90 minutes.
Arsenal did fall behind to an early goal from Ronnie Fernandez, who was partnered alongside former Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo.
Right-back Carl Jenkinson leveld the scores just before half-time. Meanwhile, Ozil teed up Lacazette to stroke home at the end of a nice move in the second-half.
Arsenal sealed the win when substitute Tyreece John-Jules rounded the ‘keeper to find the bottom corner. Khaled Jasal’s late penalty was too little, too late for the hosts.
Gooners will be hoping the break away has refreshed their side who entertain Newcastle at home on Monday.
