4-3-2-1: This is the perfect Arsenal XI to end the Swansea curse

Leading the line: Chamberlain, Sanchez, Iwobi

Alexis Sanchez

This is where the only real change comes in the side, Theo Walcott has shown vast improvements so far this season, however, a less than impressive display whilst with England over the international break may well have opened the door for fellow Southampton graduate, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Ox is, thus far, following his usual script, firing on all cylinders in the pre-season and then fade away come the start of the competitive games. Should he get the nod, he’ll want to do all he can to hold onto that start.

Leading the line for Wenger should, as it has been so far, be Alexis Sanchez, who has looked scarily dangerous through the middle and could give Bradley a very bumpy welcome to the Premier League.

Out on the left is the man who was charged with replicating Sanchez’ form on the wing and has done so brilliantly, Iwobi will give the visiting back four plenty to think about.
