Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil were part of Arsenal's home kit launch on Wednesday, as Puma revealed a sleek and minimalist design based on the classic Gunners template. 

Apart from some detail on the socks, the kit very much looks like what fans would expect out of a Gunners outfit:

Puma Football released its first images of the new kit before Arsenal did, and some fans couldn't help but notice neither Sanchez or Ozil featured. Here's a look at the photo:

Panic ensued, but other fans quickly pointed out the likes of Hector Bellerin, Olivier Giroud and Nacho Monreal are Puma-sponsored athletes, while Sanchez and Ozil are not.

Per the club's official statement, the release event will continue at King's Cross station in London throughout the day, with several familiar faces set to make an appearance.
