Arsene Wenger and his side have travelled nearly 14,000 miles across the globe on their specially prepared Emirates plane, which features the team in the brand new PUMA home kit.

The Gunners landed with a 27-man squad at their disposal, who will feature in the Barclays Premier League Asia Trophy across three days which starts this Wednesday 15th July.

Other teams featuring in the tournament include fellow Premier League sides Everton and Stoke City, and a specially selected Singapore XI club will complete the line-up.

Arsenal will begin officially begin their pre-season campaign on Wednesday when they come up against Singapore, and will then play the winner of Stoke v Everton on Saturday 18th July.

Wenger has taken a mixture of youth and experience with him to help show the Asian fans the amazing diversity this club has, and provide depth in the squad to make multiple rotations.

As well as playing in the tournament, the Gunners will also travel to various attractions and cover as much distance as possible to ensure the fans in Singapore get a chance to see their favourite players.

This is something that Arsenal successfully did a year ago, as they spent a short period of time in USA as players were still returning from World Cup duty.

However, this year will feature a lot more of our international players, with only a select few of the first team names missing from this weeks squad list.
