As expected it is quite the changed line up today for the Arsenal, a little more than I expected perhaps. For a start I thought we would see David Ospina in goal but Martinez had been selected instead. It looks as if all three of our keepers have their very own competition. How sweet!

I thought we would see Mathieu Debuchy as he was training but he is not even in the squad, maybe it's the last we see of him and he will move in January, unless he is injured. So Ainsley Maitland-Niles who was on loan at Ipswich Town last season will be given the chance to show what he can do. Xhaka and Elneny start as expected as does new boy Lucas Perez wearing his new shinny new number 9 shirt.

Dot com have The Jeff playing as number 10, let's see if that is the case but it makes sense having him there over the Ox who I feel is more natural in a wide position.
