Arsenal have submitted their updated squad of eligible players for the Champions League knockout stages, with new signing Gabriel added to the list.

Meanwhile, Olivier Giroud and Francis Coquelin, who were omitted from the previous squad, have been reinstated and are eligible to face Monaco.

Krystian Bielik, who arrived from Legia Warsaw, has been left out as clubs are only permitted to make three alterations to their squad at this stage.

All players out on loan have been left out, whilst Semi Ajayi, Julio Pleguezuelo and Dan Crowley aren’t yet eligible for the B-List despite being on professional terms.

Surprisingly, youngsters Chiori Johnson and Tyrell Robinson haven’t yet been added to the B-List despite signing professional terms recently.

    1. Jeorge has answered that question, only 3 changes can be made. Gabriel, giroud and coquelin are in for podolski, campbell and sanogo why is that so difficult to understand? Replacing diaby would be a 4th change, jeez people read the article

  1. Why people don’t read the 2014/2015 regulations? It’s certainly not too difficult to search and find. Use your brains where you might find the UEFA Champions League regulations and study them.

  2. Looking at our 24 man champions leagle squad, I would say that there will still be room for up to 4 improvements next season. Obviously there is already one empty space so Joel campbell should take that on his return next season. But in flamini, diaby and zelalem we have 3 midfielders that for me do not quite warrant a place. Whether jenkinson, podolski and sanogo would be any improvement is up for discussion, but the 7 players mentioned along with bielik, arteta and any new signings are going to make it an Interesting summer. I think i might be right in thinking that oxlade-chamberlain and any other players born 1993 would also have to be included on the a list, instead of the b list as of next season. I could be wrong but I think zelalem will soon qualify for the b list?
