Arsene Wenger has some key selection decisions to make ahead of the big Premier League kick-off, and Sunday’s game against Manchester City will help him make up his mind.
The manager will be pondering who to start up front against Liverpool on August 14 - and who gets the nod at centre back.
- Watch highlights of Friday's 8-0 win
- 'Holding mastered the pressure well'
- 'I thought Rob was brilliant'
- 'Bielik just needs experience'
“It [the Man City game] will contribute,” Wenger said. “I already have an idea. It will contribute but on Sunday we will play against top-class strikers who will want to do well against us.
“Our defenders will be tested so I might use a few combinations during the game. I believe that Bielik, Chambers and Holding will be fighting for the place between the three of them.
“[Up front] I like Walcott in that position and I like Alexis in that position as well. I might start Alexis on Sunday because Walcott played a large part in Friday’s game [against Viking]. I don’t know how ready Alexis is physically for that intensity.”
