Two weeks today, the Premier League campaign will get underway.

Manchester United host Leicester on Friday night at Old Trafford as the curtain-raiser for the 2018/19 season.

Of course, Manchester City will go into the season as favourites to retain their title considering their 100-point haul last time around.

But the battle for the top-six looks set to be extremely intriguing.

Manchester United have signed Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant as they look to overcome their city rivals, while Spurs will be buoyed by their new stadium - although they’re yet to make a new signing.

Liverpool have splashed the cash with Alisson, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri all arriving at Anfield.

Meanwhile, at Chelsea, Maurizio Sarri has arrived and has brought Jorginho with him.

But it’s at Arsenal that fans might not know what to expect.

Arsene Wenger has left and Unai Emery has taken over.

And he’s brought in Matteo Guendouzi, Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Lucas Torreira.

It led to Arsenal fans scratching their heads wondering how on earth they’re going to line-up this season.

How do they fit everyone into their starting XI?

Well, the Telegraph have had a go at predicting it - and have controversially left out Aaron Ramsey.

They believe Emery will play a 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 formation, depending on their opponents.

And their possible Arsenal XI looks like this:


That is exciting.

A new goalkeeper, a solid back-four, Torreira and Xhaka protecting the defence, Ozil in an attacking midfield position with a front-three of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alexandre Lacazette.

That would leave the likes of Shkodran Mustafi, Laurent Koscienly, Sead Kolasinac, Mohamed Elneny, Ramsey, Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck on the bench.

It just goes to show the incredible amount of depth Arsenal will have in their squad this season as they look to qualify for the Champions League once again.
