Burton amongst youngsters to remain with first-team ahead of Emirates Cup

Having returned to England following their tour of the United States, Arsenal trained at London Colney today ahead of their Emirates Cup clash against Lyon.

Robbie Burton, James Olayinka, Tyreece John-Jules, Dominic Thompson and Zeh Medley remained with the senior squad, while Matteo Guendouzi returned following his involvement in the U21 European Championship and new signing Dani Ceballos was also present.

U23 goalkeeper James Hillson also trained with the first-team.

Alex Iwobi, Lucas Torreira and Mohamed Elneny are still not yet back after their international commitments.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles is injured but Shkodran Mustafi appears to be over his minor problem.

Hector Bellerin, Emile Smith Rowe and Konstantinos Mavropanos are not yet fully fit but Rob Holding is closing in on a return and played a full part in training.

Captain Laurent Koscielny isn’t training with the squad.
