Arsenal will be without Euro2016 finalists Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny as they recover from their summer exertions. Both will miss Week 1 for sure.
Arsenal are in a rough spot at both positions as injuries and lack of depth threaten to undermine the center forward and center back spots. With Giroud and Koscielny both out while recovering from the summer tournament Danny Welbeck, Per Mertesacker, and Gabriel have all sustained significant injuries. That leaves Arsene Wenger to choose between moving Alexis or Theo Walcott into a central role or playing an untested youngster in Chuba Akpom against the Reds. At the back, Rob Holding, Krystian Bielik and Calum Chambers will be the options for Wenger on opening day. Aug 12 - 12:43 PM
