However the Londoners did sign high profile players as Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City and Oleksandr Zinchenko from the same club arrived to boost Arteta’s squad.
So is Marquinhos who joined the red’s from Sao Paulo and their new midfield acquisition Fabio Vieira from Porto. There is huge expectations of the Arsenal side to still bring in more players as Arteta. Has decided to give William Saliba a chance to impress after he came from loan spell in last season from Marseille.
Gunners take on Crystal Palace in a first Premier League game in which the Londoners are opening the season in this Friday in a huge fixture for the two clubs. Arsenal will welcome Patrick Vieira side at Emirates Stadium. With Arteta hoping for a good start compared to last season losing first three games of the season.
We take a look into how Arteta may pick his starting eleven with several players seeking an opportunity to impress the manager. In between the sticks there could be Aaron Ramsdale and there is a possibility of seeing a 4-3-3 formation use by the gaffer.
With Tomiyasu, Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes and Zinchenko in a back line of defence while a midfield of Xhaka, Partey and the creative player in Martin Odegaard.
An attacking trio of Saka as well as Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli could be trusted to score goals for the home side.
Arteta has a big squad depth and it’s more likely that some of a good set of players to come in as substitutes especially with an introduction of five substitute rule. As per this coming season in the Premier League campaign.
