Arsenal announce Premier League squad list

In the moment we've all been waiting for, Arsenal have submitted their official Premier League squad list today. Teams are able to submit up to 25 names, provided that eight of those are homegrown players:

A Home Grown Player means a player who, irrespective of his nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons or 36 months prior to his 21st birthday (or the end of the Season during which he turns 21).

Arsenal, though, have only submitted a squad of 22, having only five homegrown players to name. Players born after January 1, 1990 do not have to be included in the squad and can be used at will.

Arsenal's squad (asterisk denotes homegrown):

GK: Manuel Almunia, Vito Mannone*, Lukasz Fabianski
DF: Johan Djourou*, Kieran Gibbs*, Laurent Koscielny, Per Mertesacker, Bacary Sagna, Thomas Vermaelen, Andre Santos, Sebastien Squillaci
MF: Andrei Arshavin, Mikel Arteta, Yossi Benayoun, Abou Diaby, Tomas Rosicky, Alex Song*
FW: Gervinho, Robin van Persie, Marouane Chamakh, Park Chu-Young, Theo Walcott*

Notable U-21 luminaries include Wojciech Szczesny, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Emmanuel Frimpong, and Carl Jenkinson.
