How Arsenal are expected to line up at Crystal Palace with Jesus, Zinchenko and more
Arsenal heading into the new season.Mikel Arteta's side have been uncharacteristically efficient in the transfer market, swooping quickly and quietly for their targets, and paying smart money for them too.Last season might have ended painfully, but few expected the Gunners to even get close to the top four, and after adding goals, experience, depth and defensive solidity to their squad over the past few weeks, there's genuine belief that their Champions League exile has only one more year left to run.READ MORE: Arsenal player wages list shows Thomas Partey and Nicolas Pepe both in the top threeThey kick-off their Premier League campaign against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park this evening, and fans around the country will be on tenterhooks to see just how Arteta's budding new-look side will line up.Here's what we at Daily Star Sport reckon he'll go with: (4-2-3-1)Goalkeeper: Aaron RamsdaleWith Bernd Leno sealing a move to Fulham this week, Ramsdale's place in the line up is pretty much untouchable, if it wasn't already.
