    Maybe both Laca and Giroud? Who misses this due to injury?

    This is why he needs to be sold (if we don't get Lemar/Mahrez). If ever we're in the position where one of Alexis or Özil are injured Arsène is going to quite often play Giroud with Lacazette behind him.

    No thanks.

    I think it could be deadly against certain opposition. Leicester being one.

    sanchez no match fitness, should be on bench.
    welbeck,walcott and giroud as impact bench players
    possible ramsey on bench depending on fitness.

    think this will be a difficult game, can see a draw. alot of pace in Leicester team with Gray, Mahrez and iheanacho

    Yes, its back. Can't wait!

    We have an awful record for our opening game. The last 6 seasons all our opening games have been at home and we have won only one. Time for a change, 3-0 Laca to get a brace, Özil the other.
  6. Giroud is a good impact player, finally gives Arsenal plan B, that they haven't had for a long time. depends how happy he is to be essentially an impact and bench player

    I like that line up. Ox has been playing well and Bellerin came back late so good choice.
  8. cheers, i do think that ox thrives in the freedom of the right wing back role

    Yes, he certainly did a good job last season. Great to have competition on both flanks now. Long season ahead!

    Here we go again hopefully we make good start this time. i guess we will start with same line up who started against chelsea if only replacement going to be Özil for Iwobi i guess.

    But i would go for this
    Holding Mertesacker Monreal
    Ox Elneny Xhaka Kola
    Özil Welbeck

    What is the issue with Mustafi. He is not listed as injured on the Arsenal website.

    Strange Per getting games already this season isn't it. I expected him to be barely getting minutes and here is basically first choice as we have almost no one else.

    Physio room listing:
    Mert eye injury
    Coq ankle
    Ramsey calf
    Özil ankle
    Gabriel knee
    Wilshere broken bone
    Cazorla plantaris

    Add to that Kos suspended and maybe Mustafi/Sanchez just back late to training. Bet Elneny's ankle is sore too. Could be 10 missing for this game.

    Good job our squad is deep.

    I like that welbeck and Lacazette combination. We need our Striker to stretch defenses and running at defenses. Giroud shouold come on anymore before the 60 minutes mark. Best Plan B of the World

    Just seen the Chelsea game from the weekend, if we start with the same intensity and desire to win from the start Leicester shouldn't be able to put a glove on us. I would start the same team from that game - swap kolasinac for mertersacker, would like Özil to start for a bit more creativity in the team but that team should have more than enough for Leicester.
    Mentality is the key to success this season

    Vardy & Iheanacho will be a nice test for the defense.

    Will be interesting to see who starts given the injury/fitness issues.

    I'll take a 1-0 to the Arsenal. But I can't see us keeping a clean sheet honestly. There will be one or two moments when the defense takes a nap and someone like Vardy or Mahrez will take that chance.

    I did vote Arsenal but I'm slightly nervous about this one.

    Its the key every season!

    But how many times do we start a game at home in a sleepy manner, go a goal down and then its all out manic attack towards the end of the game, leaving you thinking "where was this intensity at the start of the game?" How many times have you seen this. 10, 25, 50+ :) :)
