Last night, the Arsenal squad flew out to Sydney for their pre-season tour of Australia and Asia. The full squad is as follows:
There are also a lot of high profile absences:
You could make a very good XI out of the players who have not been picked to go. A side that would beat Everton, despite their £100m spending.
