By on July 22, 2017

Arsenal continue their pre-season preparations with a ‘friendly’ against Chelsea at the Bird’s Nest Stadium in Beijing this afternoon.

Wenger has once again gone with a mixed side as Ospina starts in goal while it looks like youngster Maitland-Niles might be starting in the back three alongside Mertesacker and Monreal.

The Ox and youngster Bramall appear to be starting in the wing-back roles with Ramsey alongside Xhaka in midfield. Ozil and Iwobi support Lacazette up front.

Chelsea have named their strongest possible side for the game so it’s going to be a tough match for the Gunners.

Here are the teams:


Ospina, Maitland-Niles, Mertesacker, Monreal, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Xhaka, Bramall, Ozil, Iwobi, Lacazette


Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Willian, Batshuayi, Pedro.
