Arsenal has announced the squad for the friendly match against Barnet on 17 July. It is the season opener for the
based club and the two new comers Laurent Koscielny and Marouane Chamakh have been included in the squad. Barnet is a very ordinary team and it should be an easy match for Wenger. London
In the squad, there is no Van Persie or Fabregas and it is understandable. They are taking rest after World Cup. On the other hand, the future of Sol Campbell is still undecided and he is not going to feature in tomorrow’s match.
There are some big names that would be there tomorrow. Andrey Arshavin, Eduardo, Samir Nasri, Tomas Rosicky, Thomas Vermaelen and Theo Walcott are regular names in Arsenal first eleven. So, the fans at Barnet will be happy to see these players. It looks like a strong side against a small club like Barnet.
The Arsenal players for tomorrow’s match are:
Manuel Almunia (GK), Andrey Arshavin, Nacer Barazite, Marouane Chamakh, Johan Djourou, Craig Eastmond, Eduardo, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Lukasz Fabianski (GK), Emmanuel Frimpong, Kieran Gibbs, Conor Henderson, Laurent Koscielny, Henri Lansbury, Ignasi Miquel, Samir Nasri, Havard Nordtveit, Tomas Rosicky, Armand Traore, Thomas Vermaelen, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere
Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski will be there as goalkeepers and some of the fans would hope that they do not cause any kind of embarrassment for the club. This is an area that is still a major cause of concern for Arsene Wenger.
