Arsenal team news: Strong team for Arsenal’s second game of Australia tour

Arsenal have named a strong team for the second game of their preseason tour of Australia.

Alexandre Lacazette gets his first start in an Arsenal shirt playing as part of a front three alongside Olivier Giroud and Alex Iwobi.

The most intriguing spot in the line up is perhaps Mohamed Elneny who slots into the back three.

It is not a role we have seen him in before so it will be interesting to see how he gets on.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles is the only youngster that starts the game but the likes of Reiss Nelson and Chris Willock will likely see some time after impressing on Thursday.

Arsene Wenger has named his strongest midfield pairing in Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey. It will be interesting to see if they pick straight up from where they left off last season.

This is Arsenal’s final game in Australia. After this they will travel to China for a pair of games against Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
