What is the team news?
New signing Nuno Tavares could get his first taste of action in a Gunners shirt.
The left-back, 21, is unlikely to start since his move was only confirmed over the weekend but he could get some minutes at Easter Road.
Instead, Cedric Soares could start at left-back with Sead Kolasinac also on the bench after returning to the Arsenal squad since the players came back to training last week.
The Bosnian’s Arsenal future had looked in doubt after he was loaned to a struggling Schalke side in the second half of last season.
Cedric could be joined in the back four by Calum Chambers, Pablo Mari and Rob Holding, with Alex Runarsson expected to start in goal ahead of youngsters Arthur Okonkwo and Karl Jakob Hein.
Mikel Arteta could also welcome Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang back to the side, with the latter a notable absentee in photos of the squad’s first day back at London Colney.
Alexandre Lacazette could also start despite rumours circulating about his future, with the club reportedly desperate to offload him this summer.
