Clubs can only register 25 players on an 'A List' for the Champions League group matches, which must be submitted by Sept. 2 and include eight homegrown players.

What a shame that Lionel Messi instead of Danny Welbeck wasn't at the Emirates to bury one of the 187 chances Arsenal had against Manchester United on Saturday.
