Premier League champions Chelsea will collide against FA Cup champions Arsenal in the Community Shield contest at the weekend. Who will come out on top?
Both the London based clubs have strengthened their squads this summer by signing top quality players and we can expect to see a few signings in the starting lineups.
As far as Arsenal’s team news is concerned, star playmaker Alexis Sanchez is linked with a move away from the club and he is ill as well (PhysioRoom). Therefore, the Chilean might miss the game.
New signing Alexandre Lacazette should lead the line for Arsene Wenger as the lone center forward up front. Expect record signing Ozil to partner Walcott in the attack behind the former Lyon forward.
The likes of Kolasinac and Bellerin may start in the wingback positions. In the midfield, Ramsey and Xhaka could start. As far as the defense is concerned, the likes of Mertesacker, Holding and Koscielny should start.
Here is Arsenal’s strongest possible 3-4-2-1 XI vs Chelsea.
