Arsenal look pretty assured of winning the 2014 Emirates Cup following Saturday’s 5-1 win over Benfica.

Yaya Sanogo scored four goals in that massive victory, but he will not feature against AS Monaco this afternoon after limping off with a minor injury.

Chile international Alexis Sanchez starts for the Gunners, while fellow new signing Mathieu Debuchy, who arrived from Newcastle United last month, makes his debut at right-back.

Calum Chambers continues at centre-half, where he is joined by experienced Frenchman Laurent Koscielny, as Nacho Monreal reverts to the left side of Arsenal’s back four.

Arsenal’s midfield and attack are both packed with star power, as Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta, Alexis, Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla, Olivier Giroud all start.

Radamel Falcao is named in Monaco’s starting XI.


Monaco starting XI: Subasic, Dirar, Carvalho, Raggi, Elderon, Bakayoko, Kondogbia, Ferreira-Carrasco, Moutinho, Ocampos, Falcao.
