Arsenal will look to start their Champions League campaign on a positive note when they take on Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Prince on Tuesday night. Here is the side Gooner Mac thinks Arsene Wenger will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Petr Cech scored an unfortunate own goal at the weekend but will still retain his place ahead of David Ospina.
Defence: Shkodran Mustafi made his debut during the 2-1 win over Southampton on Saturday and I think the German international will keep his place at the back tomorrow night.
Laurent Koscielny was able to train today and has travelled to Paris despite suffering a nasty eye injury against the Saints at the weekend so I expect the Frenchman will start against PSG along with regular first choice full backs Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin.
Gabriel is back in full training but I don’t think he’s ready to play just yet after six weeks out with an ankle injury.
Midfield: Granit Xhaka was rested at the weekend but I expect he’ll be recalled tomorrow evening and should revive his partnership alongside Santi Cazorla after the Spaniard continued his impressive start to the new season with another goal on Saturday.
If Wenger thinks Cazorla may need a rest then Mohamed Elneny is pushing for a recall or he could stick with Francis Coquelin but I still think we’ll see the little maestro keep his place.
Aaron Ramsey is back in training but the Welshman hasn’t travelled so has remained in north London to continue to work on his fitness following a hamstring injury.
Attack: Olivier Giroud is pushing to make his first start of the new season after regaining full match fitness and I think we’ll see him come in for Lucas Perez with the Spanish striker dropping to the bench after making his debut at the weekend.
Alexis Sanchez is also set to come back in to the side after being given a breather against Southampton and he should rejoin Mesut Ozil in attack. The final place will go to either Theo Walcott or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain but I think the former just has the edge at the minute.
Here is how I think we’ll see Arsenal line-up:
