Arsenal 0-1 Monaco – Friendly – 3rd August 2014
Arsenal failed to build on their impressive 5-1 win against Benfica on the first day, instead going down 1-0 to Monaco as Valencia ultimately went on to the win the tournament.
Arsene Wenger played a lot of his big guns, with Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny and Mikel Arteta all starting, with Mathieu Debuchy and Alexis Sanchez making their first starts.
However, it was Monaco who would net the only goal of the game, courtesy of a fit-again Falcao who headed home in the first-half.
