The official Arsenal 2017/18 squad picture was taken at London Colney on Tuesday – and Arsene Wenger’s players certainly enjoyed themselves.
There were smiles all around as they posed for the cameras, proudly showing off the FA Cup and the Community Shield.
Alexis Sanchez looked a happy man, while Alexandre Lacazette and Shkodran Mustafi shared plenty of jokes – as did David Ospina and Granit Xhaka.
Jack Wilshere was back in the squad picture after spending last season on loan at Bournemouth, while some of he club’s young stars also proudly took their place amongst the senior squad.
Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, Eddie Nketiah were all involved – as were Jeff Reine-Adelaide and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Meanwhile, the referee has been confirmed for Arsenal’s key Premier League clash at Chelsea on Sunday – and it’s terrible news for Gunners fans.
Michael Oliver will be the man in the middle at Stamford Bridge – something that will not go down well with those behind the scenes at the Emirates.
Arsenal have a shocking record under the Northumberland-born official – winning only four of the 19 Premier League games he has taken charge of over his time in the top division.
Most notably last season, Oliver oversaw both the 3-0 loss at Crystal Palace and Arsenal’s North London derby defeat at White Hart Lane
One slight ray of light for Arsene Wenger’s side is that they did actually pick up three points the last time Oliver took charge of one of their games, the 3-1 victory against Everton on the final day of last season.
He did, however, send Laurent Koscielny off early on and give the Toffees a penalty.
In all, Arsenal have a 21 per cent win percentage in games under Oliver, the lowest for any official who has taken charge of more than 15 of their games in the Premier League.
