What defence will Unai Emery put out against Bournemouth?
Bournemouth do pose an attacking threat and the Arsenal defence will have to be focussed and on their game but what defence will it be?
As a guess, I would suggest that most Arsenal fans would like to see Tierney, Holding, Chambers and Bellerin but that will not happen.
Emery has a huge soft spot for Luiz and chances are he will start and if I had to do a bet I reckon that Sokratis will partner the Brazilian. Which means it is highly likely that Holding will be on the bench and will have to wait for his Premier League start this season.
Will Emery risk Tierney at the start as a left-back? I am not too sure, to be honest, and it would not surprise me to see Kolasinac start. That leaves the right-back slot and again, I do not see Emery risking Bellerin just yet so it will probably be Chambers again.
So, the chances are that Emery will go with Kolasinac, Luiz, Sokratis and Chambers.
He could drop one of them to slot in one of the returning injured three but Emery has given no indication that he is ready to do that.
The Spaniard is very loyal and because there have been no mistakes recently I do not see him taking any risks until after the international break.
What defence do you believe that Emery will go with against Bournemouth? Does be risk Tierney or Holding? Will he stay loyal to Luiz and Sokratis? Is there a reward for Chambers?
