When Arsenal travel to the States in pre-season they will play an MLS All Star team that will *not* feature either Steven Gerrard or Frank Lampard.

Or Ashley Cole.

It is not yet known why the two former Premier League stars have been left out but it’s a shame when you think about it because what would have been funnier than watching Gerrard lumber around midfield?

As we covered yesterday, Didier Drogba will be in the squad so we at least know to expect one dive, one penalty and one defeat for Arsenal in that game.

Imagine cheating in pre-season. Absolute state of him.
