Arsenal kick off the new 2017/18 Premier League campaign when we host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium this evening.
Arsene Wenger has handed a Premier League debut to Sead Kolasinac as he starts in defence alongside Nacho Monreal and Rob Holding with Per Mertesacker not risked due to his cut eye.
Alexandre Lacazette also makes his league debut with Mesut Ozil passed fit to join him in attack. Danny Welbeck is preferred ahead of Theo Walcott and Alex Iwobi.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Hector Bellerin start in the wing-back roles with Mohamed Elneny alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield. Aaron Ramsey is only fit enough for a place on the bench.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Cech, Holding, Monreal, Kolasinac; Bellerin, Elneny, Xhaka, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Ozil, Welbeck; Lacazette.
Subs: Ospina, Mustafi, Coquelin, Ramsey, Iwobi, Walcott, Giroud.
Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Fuchs, Mahrez, Ndidi, James, Albrighton, Okazaki, Vardy
