We absolutely destroyed Lyon in our opening game of the Emirates Cup, with a 6-0 win handing us a commanding lead in the competition.
Here is how we think Arsenal will line up against VfL Wolfsburg:
GK) Petr Cech
Many expected the Czech international to get his home debut against Lyon, but Emiliano Martinez was handed a start instead. He will almost certainly start against Wolfsburg though, with the home fans finally getting to see our new signing in action.

The young Spaniard is arguably still our first-choice right-back, despite Mathieu Debuchy returning from injury and performing well.
He should get a start on Sunday, and will be looking to cement his place in the starting XI.
LB) Nacho Monreal
Monreal usurped Gibbs as the starting left-back last season, and should keep his place in 2015/16. With the Englishman playing the full 90 against Lyon, Monreal should start against the Bundesliga side.
CB) Calum Chambers
The former Southampton man proved last season that he doesn’t have a future at right-back, but he has shown glimpses of real quality at centre-back.
He will be some way down the pecking order this season, but is likely to get a game on Sunday.
The Brazilian will be fighting for more regular first team football this season, and based on the few brief displays we’ve seen he deserves it. He’ll be looking to impress against Wolfsburg, and show Arsene Wenger that he should be partnering Laurent Koscielny.
