Arsenal v Bayern Munich team news: Alexandre Lacazette starts
Arsenal have named a strong line up for the first game of their tour of China.
It is their third preseason game following two wins in Australia.
Arsenal missed out on Champions League football so of course they had to arrange a game with Bayern Munich. Could not miss out on this now annual game could we?
Our team to play @FCBayern: Cech, Bielik, Mertesacker, Monreal, Maitland-Niles, Coquelin, Xhaka, Kolasinac, Ozil, Welbeck, Lacazette

It looks as though we will get a chance to see Sead Kolasinac on the wing for the first time – the position he is expected to take up for the club.
Krystian Bielik will start in the back three alongside the experienced Per Mertesacker and Nacho Monreal.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles was officially promoted to the first team this week and will get another chance to prove his worth to the team.
Mesut Ozil, Danny Welbeck and Alexandre Lacazette will make up and exciting looking front three.
This is the first of two games in China and represents a big step up in the quality of the opposition.
