WASHINGTON, D.C. – Arsenal F.C. defeated the MLS All-Stars, 5-0, in the 2023 MLS All-Star Game at Audi Field in Washington D.C. on Wednesday evening.

Arsenal was led by forward Bukayo Saka, who was named the 2023 MLS All-Star Game MVP in front of an Audi Field-record and sellout crowd of 20,621.

Arsenal was led by first-time MLS All-Star goal scorers Gabriel Jesus, Leandro Trossard, Jorginho, Gabriel Martinelli, and Kai Havertz in the victory.

Saka was named the 2023 MLS All-Star Game MVP after playing 45 minutes and contributing an assist in the match. Saka is the second English player to earn the honor after Chuba Akpom took home the award for Arsenal in the 2016 All-Star Game.

This was MLS’ first loss in an All-Star Game since 2019, when they fell to Atlético de Madrid, 3-0, at Exploria Stadium in Orlando, Fla. MLS is now 9-5-5 vs. international competition in the MLS All-Star Game.
