Arsenal fans will finally get the chance to see the summer signing that we all hope will make the difference in our challenge to regain the Premier League title next season, after Petr Cech watched from the bench as the Gunners won the first match of pre-season to qualify for the final of the Asia Trophy against Everton today.
It is a final that Arsene Wenger clearly wants to win as there are none of the academy and fringe players that we saw in that first game against Singapore. Perhaps the only slight weak spot you could say was the inclusion of Calum Chambers in the centre of defence but it is not like the youngster has not played there for us before.
Bellerin, Chambers, Koscielny, Gibbs
Walcott, Ozil, Wilshere
We will have to wait and see whether Jack or Ozil will play on the flank or whether they will interchange positions. It does look a very strong and attacking side though and should provide us with great entertainment. It will be interesting as well to see how much we miss the brilliant Francis Coquelin in the middle and whether the slightly more forward thinking double pivot can work for us.
