Team News: Arsenal vs Sunderland

It`s back!

The day we`ve all been waiting for. Happy football day to fans of Arsenal and the Premier League all over the world. The start of a new season is the only day when everyone is on equal footing, when all clubs and fans harbour their own dreams, dreams that we hope will come true in 9 months time.

We`ve had another fairly turbulent summer, but the difference this year is that Arsene has added some generous amounts of quality to the team, meaning Gooners are genuinely hopeful this year.

Of course injuries are always a problem for us and we start the new season without Wilshere, Rosicky, The Ox, Koscielny, Frimpong and Sagna. Whilst the departure of van Persie and the probable departure of Song opens up other avenues for players to stake a claim.

The new season is a little under 30 minutes away so let`s see how our boys line up.

Arsenal team:

Szczesny

Jenkinson

Mertesacker

Vermaelen (C)

Gibbs

Diaby

Arteta

Cazorla

Gervinho

Podolski

Walcott

Subs:

Djourou

Santos

Giroud

Mannone

Coquelin

Ramsey

Arshavin

Am I right assuming Arteta will play DM with Diaby the box to box player?

I thinks so 10. I hope Diaby has a great game. He deserves some good luck.

I can't stand our formation. 4-4-2 is the way to go.

Jenkinson has been bloody awful in the attacking third

And that's what happens when you sell your best player 2 days before the start of the season having given his replacements next to no time in pre season to bed in. Flat deflated crowd flat deflated team. Feckin awful.

Another frustrating attacking performance. Picking up where we left off last year. Arsene should think about tinkering with the formation.

I thought we did alright considering Sunderland's negative style, time wasting, the heat and it being the first day. Gervinho and Cazorla looked excellent. We were never troubled defensively and Chesney got a nice tan. It's not the end of the world.
