The very best that the MLS has to offer will meet Arsenal in the side's next pre-season friendly on Wednesday night.

Mikel Arteta will be looking for more from his side after a 1-1 draw with Nurnberg marked the start of friendlies ahead of the Premier League's return next month.

Manchester United and Barcelona are also on the horizon but first Arteta will go head-to-head with Premier League legend Wayne Rooney. The DC United head coach is leading an MLS All-Star squad comprising of the American and Canadian league's 28 very best stars.

There'll be no Lionel Messi, who is yet to make his Inter Miami debut, but Christian Benteke, Riqui Puig and Matt Miazga are all names Arsenal fans may recognise.

LondonWorld has all you need to know to follow the fixture in the UK on live stream and the latest on whether Declan Rice could pull on the Arsenal shirt in a match for the first time.
