Cech expected to start for Gunners

Posted by

Arsenal’s £10m summer signing Petr Cech is expected to start in goal against former club Chelsea in Sunday’s Community Shield.

The 33-year-old should get the nod from Arsene Wenger, with the Gunners fielding a largely full-strength line-up.

Danny Welbeck is still battling knee trouble, with Tomas Rosicky also a way off fitness with a knee complaint. Beyond that Wenger can select from strength.

Provisional squad: Cech, Bellerin, Chambers, Koscielny, Monreal, Wilshere, Coquelin, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Ozil, Walcott, Ospina, Giroud, Gibbs, Mertesacker, Debuchy, Ramsey, Gabriel, Flamini, Arteta.
