Arsenal’s preseason schedule begins in less than an hour as the Gunners take on a Singapore Select XI in the second semi-final of the Barclays Premier League Asia Trophy.
Manager Arsene Wenger has opted not to start new signing Petr Cech, with Emiliano Martinez lining up in goal instead.
Wenger has, however, handed starts to a number of first-team stars, including Per Mertesacker, Nacho Monreal, Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain.
Arsenal will wear their new 2015-16 away shirt in today’s game.
The kit was launched yesterday.
The winner of this game – which will almost certainly be Arsenal – will play Everton in the final on Saturday.
Everton beat Stoke City on penalties earlier today, following a 0-0 draw.
Arsenal XI: Martinez; Debuchy, Mertesacker, Gabriel, Monreal; Wilshere, Flamini, Coquelin; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Akpom, Iwobi.
