4-2-3-1: Probable Arsenal line-up with sixth summer signing from South-America


Arsenal will ramp up their new League campaign this term against winners Manchester City.

A sudden switch from the post-Wenger era might seem extremely foreign given the more radical approach of Unai Emery.

Nonetheless, it promises to be an exciting season packed with a lot of adrenaline and youthfulness in this north London side.

Disappointingly, the Gunners will not be involved in any Champions League action, which means they could have a lot to offer this term under lesser pressure.

But how well will Unai Emery do against the big fives and those below the perking order outside Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City?

Cristian Pavón is preparing to join the Premier League club, and here’s is a line-up that could be used in their opener against City.

Goalie Bernd Leno is expected to wear the gloves at Arsenal and Petr Cech who is on the wrong side of under-fitness, is expected to be drop. Nevertheless, his experience during his long spell Chelsea will play a huge part in grooming Leno, who is 26.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Stephan Lichtsteiner have been brought on by the club, an addition that will that will raise the fence in the Gunners backline wall.

Meanwhile, at the centre of the park, new recruit Lucas Torreira has been tipped to add more solidity, freeing up Granit Xhaka to dictate play with enough authority.

Argentine winger Cristian Pavón, who has been linked to the Emirates, will be task with adding an extra punch to their attack.

While on the front, Gabonese Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be their threatening machine.
