Reports are out claiming that Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola will renew rivalries when Arsenal play against Manchester City in Gothenburg in a pre-season friendly.

It will be one of two pre-season fixtures the Gunners play in Scandinavia in early August, with Arsenal set to take on Viking FK in Stavanger, Norway, on Friday August 5, two days before they play their Premier League rivals at the 44,000-capacity Ullevi Stadium.

“Pre-season is a very important time for the team and our trips to the United States and then Scandinavia give us a good mixture of games to get ready for the new campaign,” Wenger said.

“On a personal note, I am happy that we are returning to Norway and Sweden for the first time in a while because we have some fantastic support in both countries. Many supporters travel all the way to London to watch us play so it will be good to be able come to them this time and hopefully put in two good performances.”
