TEAMS – Arsenal v Aston Villa: Rosicky & Ox Start

By on August 17, 2013

Premier League is back as we welcome Aston Villa to the Emirates today. It’s time to forget the shambolic summer of transfer in-activity and get behind the boys.

Arsene Wenger has a wafer-thin squad to choose from and the back four practically picks itself with Nacho Monreal and Thomas Vermaelen our injured. Bacary Sagna has been passed fit to play while Tomas Rosicky and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also get a chance to impress.
