I've just returned from a trip to Sainsburys (such fun it was too) to the news that Arsene has rotated his squad somewhat and there has been some interesting choices

Granit Xhaka has been handed his first start in an Arsenal shirt which is pretty exciting. Let's hope he is sharper than his substitute performance last weekend. As expected Arsene has risked Laurent Koscielny back into the team but his partner is new boy Rob Holding rather than Calum Chambers which is interesting.

Mesut Ozil and Oliver Giroud give us extra strength on the bench if we need it, hopefully we can bring them on to close out a game rather than hoping they can rescue a game. Francis Coquelin starts again which is a surprise I must say, well especially given that Xhaka is starting. Maybe Arsene is worried about Leicester on the break.

Hopefully we can do the job today and kick our season off properly.

Come on you Gunners!
