Arsenal play the first of two pre-season friendlies on their pre-season tour of Scandinavia tonight with Norwegian outfit Viking FK up first at the Viking Stadion.

Arsene Wenger has named a mixed side with David Ospina replacing Petr Cech in goal while Mathieu Debuchy, Gabriel and Kieran Gibbs join youngster Krystian Bielik in defence.

Mohamed Elneny is partnered by Francis Coquelin in midfield with summer signing Granit Xhaka not named in the squad. Joel Campbell, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Santi Cazorla start in attack and will support Theo Walcott – who leads the line up front once again.

Ron Holding, Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal,Alex Iwobi and Chuba Akpom are among the players on the bench, however, Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez haven’t been named in tonight’s squad so you’d expect they’ll feature in Sunday’s clash with Manchester City in Sweden.

Here is the confirmed Arsenal line-up:
