Confirmed: Arsenal line-up to play Wolfsburg

Arsenal Emirates 3

Here is how Arsenal will line up for their match against Wolfsburg:

Arsenal starting XI: Cech, Bellerin, Chambers, Gabriel, Monreal, Arteta, Cazorla, Reine-Adelaide, Ozil, Wilshere, Walcott

Arsenal subs: Martinez, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Giroud, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Akpom, Coquelin, Hayden, Iwobi

Arsenal started their Emirates Cup campaign with a glorious 6-0 victory against French side Lyon on Saturday, and now they have the chance to secure the trophy by defeating German club Wolfsburg this afternoon.

Yesterday’s match was won at a canter, with Alex Iwobi scoring his first goal for Arsenal and Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also getting on the score-sheet.

In truth Lyon were never at the races and Arsenal can expect a tougher match this afternoon.

The Gunners have had an impressive pre-season campaign to date and now have the chance to add another cup to the Asia Trophy they secured with victory against Everton earlier this month.

Then comes the Community Shield against Premier League champions Chelsea before the new campaign kicks off the following week.

Arsenal fans are understandably excited about the upcoming campaign and if they continue to play like they have been recently their club could be set for considerable success.
