Official line-ups: MLS All-Stars vs. Arsenal


Arsenal take on Major League Soccer’s All-Stars at 1am UK time and the two sides have released their respective squads.

The north London side take on the All-Stars in their second pre-season fixture of the summer after drawing 1-1 against RC Lens last week, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s chipped effort drawing the Gunners level.

Arsenal field a changed XI this time around, with debutant Rob Holding getting his first ever start in a red and white shirt, while returns for Petr Cech and Jack Wilshere are notable performers.

The Gunners will also have Krystian Bielik at the heart of the defence alongside Holding, who will be looking to impress as he attempts to tie down a place in the first-team for the season ahead.

Meanwhile, Granit Xhaka will be on the bench and could play a part in the game.

Arsenal XI: Cech; Debuchy, Holding, Bielik, Gibbs; Elneny, Coquelin; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wilshere, Campbell; Walcott.

Subs: Martinez, Bellerín, Monreal, Chambers, Xhaka, Zelalem, Iwobi, Willock, Reine-Adelaide, Akpom.

MLS All-Stars XI: Blake; Rosenberry, Ciman, Van Damme, Acosta; Pirlo, Beckerman; Dos Santos, Kaka, Villa; Drogba.

Subs: Bingham, Birnbaum, Farrell, Vincent, Watson, Piatti, Giovinco, Kljestan, Diaz, Trapp, Dempsey, Womdolowski, Larin, Nagbe.
