We could use a big, commanding CM, but we have decent depth at most positions.

My biggest concern is at Keeper. Cech showed that he was slipping last season - failing to get down quickly and let in about a half dozen stoppable goals. And I have zero confidence in Ospina. Sure, he is a shot-stopper, but he is not built for this league because of his lack of stature and his fearfulness on high balls into the box results in paralysis. He is soft, too - good for a lie down in every match he plays.

I would have preferred making a new long-term deal with Szczesny.
We will regret letting him slip away ... and we will regret it soon.

I am very anxious to see how a foxy guy like Lacazette works in our offense.

Monreal as our solo CB? He was a revelation at left wing when we went three at the back and now look. His versatility is just so valuable.

Doesn't look good for Chambers does it? Must be off surely? Real shame though, good player.

Personally though, I'd have thought Chambers-Holding-Monreal, with Kolasinac at LWB and Oxlade-Chamberlain at RWB, would be better and more balanced than the current lineup. We'll see though.

Dream start for Arsenal and Lacazette! 1-0!

Bellerin lays the ball back to Elneny. Elneny chips in a great first time cross and Lacazette heads home well.

Long throw is headed to Mahrez completely unmarked on the edge of the area, but he lashes it wide. Let off.

1-1. Awful defending, and Cech got it all wrong as well.

Oxlade-Chamberlain smashes one over. Good counter attack.

Agreed. Forced Kolasinac to concede the corner which led to the goal. Can't believe nobody was even challenging Maguire though, disgraceful.

Don't like this lineup at all, no balance.

Elneny just ignored a perfect chance to play Oxlade-Chamberlain in down the left and instead went back to Kolasinac. Poor.

Weak shot from Oxlade-Chamberlain comfortably saved.

Class tracking back from Lacazette after Holding lost it high up the pitch.

Quality from Welbeck as he gets to the touchline but his ball across goal is cut out.

Kolasinac plays a one-two with Xhaka and has a half-volley saved at the near post.
