With Laurent Koscielny suspended and Gabriel still recovering from a knee injury, Per Mertesacker is likely to start for the Gunners against Leicester City on Friday.
The former German international and future Arsenal academy director left the Community Shield match early with a significant gash above his eye. After getting a number of stitches he returned to training on Wednesday and should be eligible to play on Friday. Given the crunch at center back it seems likely that Mertesacker will get a start.
