The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are really looking forward to the start of the season…
It has been a relatively good summer for the Gunners, with the signing of Alexandre Lacazette a clear highlight, whilst the retention of Alexis Sanchez is, thus far, going very well indeed.
Though the season seemingly only ended a few days ago, pre-season has flown by and it is nearly time for the annual Premier League curtain raiser – the Community Shield.
Last season saw Manchester United come out on top, with Jose Mourinho picking up the first of a few trophies earned during his debut season in Manchester, and the win stood the Red Devils in a good position ahead of the new campaign.
For Arsenal, the coming season is particularly important, given their poor finish last year, and so they’ll want to win this one.
Arsenal won’t quite have their full strength team out given that their side has returned to training at different times, but their squad is still strong enough to bag a win.
With that said, this Arsenal XI is surely good enough to beat Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday…
