    Don't worry, you can watch us lose another time.

    Livestream on Arsenal.com I guess.

    Looking forward to seeing the new boys in action and how the midfield lines up, since we'll probably miss a few in there for the first few games.

    The games gonna be live on arsenal.com.

    I'm unusually excited for this preseason game. I reckon we'll see a 4231 - it's what most of the team knows and it's what Emery knows. What will be interesting is the different shapes we form within the initial set-up.

    It won't be an entirely full squad either so I want to see some youngsters put in a good performance. Good chance we'll see AMN, Willock, Nketiah, Nelson and Smith-Rowe in some capacity - possibly Osei-Tutu aswell given Lichtsteiner has not yet trained with the squad.

    *Edit

    I mean wont the likes of Nketiah be in the England team?

    No, they were pulled out of the squad. AMN was also pulled out of the Toulon tournament a couple of months back - Nketiah took part, but he's not going to the U19 tournament. Arsenal requested they stay for preseason so they'll be with us. Nelson, Willock and Nketiah were originally part of the squad but they were pulled out.

    Shame really, would have been good to watch them tear up the Euro's.

    I'd much rather them tear it up for us if I'm honest. It would have been nice to see them at a tournament and playing consistently though - which they would have - but they would have missed preseason and I want them closer to the first team here. Best chance is to impress Emery directly when he plays them.

    I'm hoping they get a good run in preseason and really show what they can do, particularly Nelson who was quite tentative at times last season.

    Did the youngsters have a choice in not participating, or did the club dictate things to them?

    My starting XI prediction:

    Martinez
    Bellerin Mavropanos Chambers Kolasinac
    AMN Willock
    Ramsey
    Mikhi Nketiah Nelson
    I really hope we get to see Nketiah start some games this season. Carabao cup and EL group stage should be all his imo

    Mark Tobias Mmhmm yes, I agree

    Problem is, these things often have little relevance in pre-season. It isn't necessarily an indication of what we will see in the season.

    True, but emery being new himself wouldn’t want to waste that much time experimenting imo
