Arsenal have announced the squad for this weekend’s Emirates Cup. The Gunners face Benfica and Sevilla on Saturday and Sunday and Arsene Wenger has selected the following players.
Petr Cech, David Ospina, Emi Martinez
Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny, Rob Holding, Nacho Monreal, Calum Chambers, Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac, Cohen Bramall
Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alex Iwobi, Granit Xhaka, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Francis Coquelin, Mohamed Elneny, Joe Willock
Alexandre Lacazette, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck, Reiss Nelson
There’s no place in the squad for Kieran Gibbs, Mathieu Debuchy, Carl Jenkinson or Lucas Perez
Jeff Reine-Adelaide, all of whom were involved in a friendly against Boreham Wood last night and are expected to leave the club this summer.
Jack Wilshere is not included either, we assume because of fitness issues as he’s just returned to first team training, while there’s no place for Jeff Reine-Adelaide either.
Arsenal play Benfica on Saturday and Sevilla on Sunday with both games kicking off at 16.20
