Match: Arsenal v Liverpool
Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Kick Off (GMT): Sun 14th Aug 16.00
We expected Granit Xhaka to get his debut in the midfield alongside Santi Cazorla but The Boss has gone with a more defensively solid pairing in the middle of the park.
Cech gets the nod at the back and Rob Holding will make his Premier League debut in the middle of a shuffled defensive unit. It could prove a wise decision to give the back four a solid midfield in front of it.
Theo Walcott and Alex Iwobi get the nod in the wide areas with Aaron Ramsey playing behind Alexis Sanchez as the lone striker.
