Arsenal continue their pre-season preparations when we take on Lyon in the Emirates Cup this afternoon. Here is the confirmed team news….

Unai Emery has named a strong line-up with Bernd Leno starting in goal while Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Calum Chambers, Sokratis and Nacho Monreal make-up the back four.

Matteo Guendouzi is recalled to the starting eleven after returning to pre-season training last week as he joins Granit Xhaka in midfield while youngster Joe Willock also gets another chance to impress.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan supports Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in attack meaning new signing Dani Ceballos will have to wait to make his debut after joining the club on loan from Real Madrid on Thursday.

There is no Sead Kolasinac or Mesut Ozil in the starting eleven following their car jacking terror last week. They will be available from the bench along with the rest of the first team squad.

These are the line-ups:

Arsenal

Leno, Maitland-Niles, Chambers, Sokratis, Monreal, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Mkhitaryan, Willock, Aubameyang, Lacazette.

Lyon

Lopes – Dubois, Yanga Mbiwa, Denayer, Marçal – T.Mendes, J.Lucas, Cheikh Diop – Terrier, B.Traoré, Depay.
