Vela and Ramsey to Start?

Arsène Wenger has named a 24-man squad for Saturday's opening pre-season fixture against Barnet.

The Arsenal manager will have a mixture of first-teamers and youth players at his disposal for the game at Underhill.

Manuel Almunia, Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna, Nicklas Bendtner and Theo Walcott are included while new signing Aaron Ramsey could make his debut. Carlos Vela is also in the squad after returning from his season-long loan spell with Osasuna in Spain.

Arsenal will wear their new home kit for the first time this Saturday but first-team squad numbers will not be used. Instead, the starting line-up will wear No 1 to No 11 while the substitutes will wear shirt No 12 to No 24.
