Arsenal has announced the squad that will travel to France to face Angers in a pre-season friendly on Wednesday. The Gunners will play Angers and Barcelona as the last two pre-season opponents before the Premier League officially begins with a trip to Newcastle United.

Star striker Alexandre Lacazette is missing from the squad following his injury during Sunday’s loss to Lyon in the Emirates Cup. The striker injured his ankle and came off after just 15minutes of play. Also missing from the squad is Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac who were victims of a robbery attempt on Friday.

Below is the full squad..

And they did not hide their disappointment…
