Goalkeeper and Defence
GK) Wojciech Szczesny – The Arsenal number one looked commanding between the sticks in the Community Shield win over Manchester City and is the obvious choice for Arsene Wenger.
RB) Mathieu Debuchy – Also looked good at Wembley and has certainly been brought in to be a first team regular for the Gunners.
CB) Laurent Koscielny – Will be charged with holding the Arsenal defence together with regular partner Per Mertesacker set to miss out having started pre-season late.
CB) Calum Chambers – Has shown enough in his fledgling Arsenal career to suggest that he can step up to the park and replace Mertesacker for the opening fixture.
LB) Kieran Gibbs – An important season awaits for Gibbs, who Wenger has put plenty of faith in as first choice left back.
