Predicted Arsenal line-up to play Lyon in the Emirates Cup

Arsenal Emirates

Here is how we predict Arsenal will line up for Saturday's clash against the French club.

Arsenal host the annual Emirates Cup this weekend with the Gunners taking on French side Lyon on Saturday and then German club Wolfsburg the following afternoon.

The matches will allow Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to continue to run the rule over his first-team stars ahead of their upcoming Premier League campaign, which kicks off against West Ham United on 9 August.

Arsenal have already played one pre-season competition this summer, winning the Asia Trophy by overcoming a Singapore Select XI 4-0 in the semi-final and Everton 3-1 in the final and now their fans can see them up close in an event that is always very well received.

Arsenal have been quiet in terms of summer signings, but their one addition so far – Petr Cech – has been a brilliant move that considerably strengthens their side…and there is still plenty of time before the window slams shut.

We expect Wenger to play a strong side against the Ligue 1 club with the likes of Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud all getting a run out.
