Predicted Arsenal starting XI for Crystal Palace (H)

Calum ChambersIt is now just nine days until the Premier League returns, and Arsenal take on Crystal Palace in the first televised game on Sky on the opening Saturday.

Supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern predict an opening day three points for the Gunners, but Palace are not to be taken lightly after their resurgence under Tony Pulis last term.

And Gunners supporters will surely look back to the opening day of last season, when they suffered a shock 1-3 home defeat to Aston Villa.

12 months is a long time in football however, and since that day last August the Gunners have ended their nine year trophy drought, and have strengthened significantly in the transfer market.

Arsene Wenger still has work to do, with a new centre back and a new holding midfielder his priorities at the moment.

But with Calum Chambers, David Ospina, Mathieu Debuchy and Alexis Sanchez having already signed, and with players like Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looking to return to full fitness shortly, there is a feeling amongst Arsenal supporters that this could be their year.

Here we have predicted their starting line up for that opening day clash with Crystal Palace at the Emirates.
