Arsenal have had just a handful of training sessions to prepare. As a result, it is difficult to know what side Arteta will pick – particularly when some players have had to quarantine after returning from holiday.
That was the case with Emi Martinez and, despite the Argentina international being back in training, Bernd Leno should start ahead of him in goal. In defence, William Saliba is set to make his debut as part of a back-three that should contain Rob Holding and Kieran Tierney.
At right wing-back, Hector Bellerin’s absence from Tuesday’s friendly at MK Dons suggest Cedric Soares may start and Ainsley Maitland-Niles could operate on the other flank.
With Dani Ceballos no longer at the club, Mohamed Eleney is primed to start in central midfield alongside Granit Xhaka.
Upfront, Eddie Nketiah looks set to start as Alexandre Lacazette was not in the squad that played at MK Dons. On the wings, Pierre Aubameyang will captain the side from the left and Bukayo Saka should play on the right.
As for Liverpool, Trent Alexander-Arnold is set to win his fitness race to return to the squad. He will be joined by Virgil van Dijk, who sustained a deep cut above his eye during Liverpool’s final friendly, a 2-2 draw with RB Salzburg, but is in line to start.
Jurgen Klopp will, however, be denied the services of a number of players who missed out on pre-season due to fitness concerns.
Jordan Henderson, Joel Matip, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri, Harry Wilson and Divock Origi won’t make the trip to the capital this weekend.
But Klopp remained optimistic on their progress, revealing that a number could be back in time for the start of the Premier League season.
