Several members of the first-team squad met their American supporters on Thursday - and they received a rapturous reception!

Aaron Ramsey, Carl Jenkinson, Kieran Gibbs, Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Gedion Zelalem all attended a fan party at the Izod Center in New Jersey.

After an incredible welcome as they walked in individually, they took part in a Q&A session that also involved Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

The players then took part in a host of activities, and even got to shoot some hoops with the supporters!

Our club photographer was there and sent back these exclusive images.
