Wenger was pleased that Akpom’s winner saved his side from going into a penalty shootout with scores level at 1-1 with three minutes left to play.

“I didn’t want to go to penalties,” Wenger told the Arsenal’s official website.

“We play to win, and even in pre-season we want to accumulate confidence and think that we can keep going. Overall I think we scored a very good goal [to win it].”

Nigerian striker Akpom, who was named man of the match, poked in Nacho Monreal’s low cross in the 87th minute to hand Arsenal their first pre-season win in two games.

Arsenal nemesis Didier Drogba had equalised for the MLS All-Stars.

The Gunners drew 1-1 against Lens in their first pre-season game.
