Arsenal have released their team photo for the 2018/19 season. The manager Unai Emery and all the new signings are included in the picture.

However, there was one particular inclusion that has irked some Gunners fans. Fullback Carl Jenkinson remains in the first team squad and is standing in the back row between Matteo Guendouzi and Emiliano Martinez:

Fans on Twitter were quick to point out the right-back is still at the club:

Jenkinson is sidelined with an ankle injury until at least November. He has not featured for the Gunners’ first team since November 2016 and spent the whole of last season on loan at Birmingham City.

The 26-year-old has just under two years left on his current deal at the Emirates but there is no sign he will be leaving the club anytime soon.

He managed just nine appearances for Birmingham last campaign after suffering a broken shoulder before being sidelined by new manager Garry Monk when he returned to full fitness.
