Arsenal have confirmed the 20-man squad that will face Ligue 1 side Angers at Stade Raymond Kopa this evening.
It’s a mix of youth and experience with a few notable absentees. Bernd Leno and Alex Lacazette (presumably not being risked after his ankle knock) have not made the trip, while, Sead Kolasinac and Mesut Ozil, who missed the Emirates Cup game against Lyon on Sunday after last week’s awful carjacking attempt, have stayed in London.
Late returnees, including Alex Iwobi, Lucas Torreira and Mohamed Elneny are also still sidelined. Dani Ceballos is also absent.
The match, which kicks-off at 6.30 pm (BST) will be aired in the UK on Premier Sports.
This is our penultimate publicised pre-season friendly. On Sunday we face Barcelona at Camp Nou and then there’s a week before we take on Newcastle.
We suspect there could be a behind-closed-doors match organised at London Colney in that little gap.
