Arsenal and Sevilla will observe a minute's applause in memory of Jose Antonio Reyes during Saturday's Emirates Cup clash.

Reyes, who represented Sevilla and Arsenal during his playing career, died in a car accident in June 2019 at the age of 35.

He lifted the Europa League three times with Sevilla and won two major honours with Arsenal.

With two of his former clubs set to face off this weekend, Sevilla announced on Friday that a special tribute had been planned.

Supporters inside Emirates Stadium were encouraged to applaud Reyes in the ninth minute, marking the number he wore on his shirt at Arsenal.

There will also be a video tribute played on the big screens ahead of kick-off, while managers Mikel Arteta and Julen Lopetegui will exchange shirts before the match.
