    It's not preseason anymore, I expect Wenger to field his preferred XI, and based on last season : Cazorla, Ramsey Coquelin and Özil have to play.
    In fact, I'm ready to bet that we'll see the team that faced Chelsea.

    Same side as last Sunday.

    Cech

    Hector Sacker Kosc Monreal

    Coq Santi

    Ox Özil Ramsey

    Theo

    Positive start with a convincing performance will do nicely.

    3-1

    Finally, can't describe how much I've missed the Premier League, so glad this wait is over. West Ham are a good team, have improved massively, but if we want to lift that trophy come May we need three points, no matter what.

    I'm expecting Wenger to stick with Bellerin for this one, despite his performance vs. Chelsea. Rest of the back four stays the same as well. First name in the midfield has to be Coq, accompanied by either Ramsey or Cazorla. If we put Theo up top, we can fit Ox on one wing and one of Ramsey/Cazorla on the other. If Giroud comes in, Theo goes to one wing, Ox to the other and one of Ramsey/Cazorla has to be droppped. Özil will of course start. Decisions decisions..

    Anyway, three points and a clean sheet would be nice. Can't be complacent though!

    Can't see West Ham winning here. New manager, few new players and most of all, their best player can't play for them in this game.

    West Ham are playing in Romania on Thursday, tough journey for them, especially as they drew their home leg 2-2. You'd think they'd send a strong team but I see their manager is reported as saying he might send the reserves instead, saving his better players for the premier league. Don't suppose it matters either way, we really should be winning this and getting our campaign off to a good start.

    West ham have been embarrassing in pre-season/Europa league qualifiers and we're flying and at home. Let's see how the Santi - Ramsey combo works:

    Cech

    Bellerin Mertesacker Koscielny Monreal

    Ramsey Santi

    Ox Özil Theo

    Giroud

    West Ham are getting spanked, that much is obvious. They are our banker side.

    Chance for the attackers to get off the mark.

    Also one big decision for Wenger as to whether Giroud or Walcott starts. If both do, one of Ramsey or Ox hit the bench which I doubt. I'd say he'll go with Walcott through the middle before reverting back to Giroud soon enough.

    Sunday start is pretty **** though, for first game of the season.

    1st game of the season proper. I, personally, would go with tried and tested and ease Walcott in to the central role when we've got a couple of games under the belt and Sanchez back.

    For me:

    ------------------------------Cech-----------------------------

    --Debuchy------Mertesacker-Koscielny---Monreal

    --------------------Coquelin--------Ramsey----------------

    ----------------------------------Özil-------------------------------
    -Walcott--------------Giroud---------Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Subs
    Özil / Cazorla
    Ramsey / Wilshere
    Debuchy / Bellerin

    3-0 gooners

    Özil, Ramsey, Alexis and Caz are all Wenger's favourites. They are all guaranteed to start if fit.

    Theo, Ox, Coq, Wilshere & Giroud will be battling it out for the remaining places.

    When is Alexis expected to be back in the starting XL?

    I want us to go for the kill this season, no more settling for 2-0 wins, I'd love to see us scoring 4 or 5 most weeks at home, we're capable of doing it if everybody has that killer mentality.

    Go out there and make a statement. Westham have got a ton of new players settling in and their best attacker is injured. Let's get out there, spank'em 5 nil and send a message that were coming for that title. Let's create some fear.
