Arsenal kick off their pre-season tour of Asia with a friendly against a Malaysia XI side on Tuesday afternoon.
With the likes of Robin van Persie, Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski, Per Mertesacker, Bacary Sagna and Tomas Rosicky all left at home for one reason or another, it gives some of the younger members of the Gunners squad a chance to impress.
Vito Mannone gets the nod in goal, Abou Diaby makes a long awaited return after missing the majority of last season through injury, while Mikel Arteta also returns after missing the end of last season with a knee injury.
Marouane Chamakh starts up front and is supported by Gervinho. Here is the confirmed Arsenal team for the game:
Mannone, Jenkinson, Djourou, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Arteta, Diaby, Coquelin, Santos, Gervinho, Chamakh.
We’ll have the goals up shortly after the game, so check back later.
