Arsenal's 2015/16 Puma home shirt will be unveiled tonight at the Emirates Stadium, but Gunners players Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud have already tweeted images of them in the shirt which confirms that the leaked images of the strip are in fact correct.

The kit features the classic red with white trim and a small sliver of gold around the collar. The teaser image released by Puma shows the same red piping running along the sleeves.

Manufacturers Puma also cryptically tweeted these images, showing the same red piping down the arms:


Ahead of last season's kit launch club legend Thierry Henry accidentally leaked the kit when he was pictured alongside former Olympic champion Linford Christie at a Puma event.

Puma's deal with Arsenal is worth £30million a year, way below the mega 10-year, £750m deal adidas paid to lure Manchester United away from Nike.
