Arsenal will be looking to push on this season, and an early season glass raiser against Chelsea would certainly go a long way to making sure they get off on the right foot.

Here is how we think they will line up against Chelsea on Sunday at Wembley.

GK: Petr Cech

Facing his former club for the first time, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of reception he will receive from the Chelsea fans.


RB: Hector Bellerin

The Spanish youngster finished the previous campaign as the club’d first choice right-back, and will likely pick up where he left off as he has given no reason for Wenger to think otherwise.

CB: Per Mertesacker

It’ll be a pivotal season for the BFG, as he will likely need to prove that he is still up to the demands of challenging at the very top.


CB: Laurent Koscielny

Mertesacker’s trusted lieutenant at the back, he will use this as an opportunity to get his fitness back before the big kick off next week.

LB: Kieran Gibbs

Though Nacho Monreal is on the verge of penning a new deal with the club, Wenger will likely give the England international one final chance to impress.
