3. Does Trossard start?
The one certainty is that Bukayo Saka will be on the right wing. The left-wing will be interesting.
Leandro Trossard has certainly been in form and deserves to be in the starting XI. Will he usurp Martinelli down the left, or is it possible Arteta starts his number 11 and has Trossard leading the line?
The question remains as to who will slot in at the centre forward position in Gabriel Jesus’ absence. Eddie Nketiah is capable, Trossard has been in form, and Havertz looked good playing as the false nine against City. His finishing, however, could have been better.
One thing for sure is the gaffer has options, and I think it will be interesting to see how Arteta mixes and matches his attackers to start the season without Jesus.
