Arsenal have released the 20-man roster ahead of Saturday's highly-anticipated friendly against the New York Red Bulls.

I won't bore you with a lot of commentary. Here it is...

Goalkeepers: Damien Martinez, Wojciech Szczesny

Defenders: Hector Bellerin, Kieran Gibbs, Isaac Hayden, Carl Jenkinson, Ignasi Miquel, Nacho Monreal

Midfielders: Mikel Arteta, Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin, Abou Diaby, Mathieu Flamini, Kristoffer Olsson, Aaron Ramsey, Tomas Rosicky, Jon Toral, Jack Wilshire, Gedion Zelalem

Forward: Chuba Akpom

I'll leave the analysis to Gunners fans -- I'm more of a Fulham man myself -- but it seems like a mix of regulars and reserve players. But from what I know about Arsenal, Zelalem is a player to watch, what with his supposedly imminent switch to the United States. That, and I'm sure Alexis Sanchez's exclusion won't make too many Arsenal fans happy, but I guess we already knew he'd be left off.

But how can you complain when they haven't been stateside in a quarter century?
