Summer signing Bernd Leno should get another chance to impress while Aaron Ramsey will look to put his contract situation to one side and should start in midfield.
The Welsh star, who arrived in north London from Cardiff in 2008, is reportedly being tailed by Italian outfit Lazio and Ramsey is said to be partial to a new adventure overseas.
"There's a great opportunity this season under the new manager to go on and hopefully compete for things, so I'm looking forward to that and if something's to happen we'll see in the next few weeks or so".
"I'm not sure about the details, I'm leaving it for them to discuss". "The captaincy is a massive responsibility and it would be an honour to captain this club", said Ramsey.
The website reports that the England worldwide is not in Gunners boss Unai Emery's first team plans, and would be allowed to leave before the transfer window closes.

Britain would find that challenging but in the end we would find a way not just to survive but to thrive economically. That means there "a perfectly plausible risk" that pensioners in certain countries could not be paid, Mr Evans said.
Arsenal have been given the green light to complete a move for Steven N'zonzi.
The new era at Arsenal will well and truly kick off under Emery when Pep Guardiola's men visit, with an air of excitement and anticipation surrounding the club.
But, says Spanish newspaper Estadio Deportivo, N'Zonzi's dad "holds a unique personal sell-on clause which would entitle him to a cash windfall if Sevilla sell his son", and that's the reason they don't want to lower their asking price.
Ramsey is considered key to Emery's rebuilding project at the London club after the 22-year Arsene Wenger era but, with his contract expiring next year, the Wales worldwide raised hopes he could agree a new deal.
