Arsenal begin their 2015-16 Premier League campaign against West Ham United in just under an hour. The teams are in!
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has opted to give Olivier Giroud the honour of leading the attack, leaving Theo Walcott on the bench.
Alexis Sanchez is also among the substitutes, despite suggestions he would not be included yet due to his relaxed preseason, which was granted to give him a rest after his Copa America exertions.
The headline team news for the Hammers is that teenage defender Reece Oxford makes his Premier League debut.
Oxford’s age is just 16 years and 237 days, making him the seventh-youngest Premier League player ever.
