Arsenal wrap-up our pre-season campaign when we take on Barcelona in the Joan Gamper Trophy at the Nou Camp this evening.

Unai Emery has handed Mesut Ozil a start in attack as the German playmaker lines-up alongside Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Reiss Nelson. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads the line up front in the absence of Alexandre Lacazette – who’s out with an ankle injury.

Joe Willock gets another chance to impress in midfield as he starts alongside Granit Xhaka meaning Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi and Dani Ceballos have to make do with places on the subs bench.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Calum Chambers, Sokratis and Nacho Monreal make-up the back four with Bernd Leno in goal. Gabriel Martinelli and Buyaka Saka are among the subs.

Here are the teams:
