If Arsene Wenger really wanted to he could start with the same Arsenal team that beat Chelsea the last time we met at Wembley to contest a trophy, as long as the Chile international star Alexis Sanchez really is ready to go as the Frenchman has suggested ahead of this Community Shield clash.
The starting line-up of Arsenal in that fantastic FA cup final was like this.
Holding, Mertesacker, Monreal
Bellerin, Ramsey, Xhaka, Chamberlain
Ozil, Sanchez, Welbeck
However, I do not think the boss will go with the same side despite the fact they did so well. Surely he will want to bring Koscielny, who was unavailable in May through injury, into the defence. I would also expect to see Kolasinac on the left after he looked so good in the Emirates Cup last weekend.
There is also a strong case for young Reiss Nelson and either Giroud or Walcott or both to start in our attack and that is before you even consider the big summer striker signing Lacazette. I would also consider starting with Elneny alongside either Xhaka or Ramsey to give a bit more defensive solidity, so this would be my Arsenal XI.
Holding, Koscielny, Monreal
Chamberlain, Elneny, Ramsey, Kolasinac
Walcott, Alexis, Ozil
Who would you like to see Arsenal start with?
