Arsenal have a few options available to them going into Saturday’s North London derby.

It’s another big game, which means it’s another round of guessing which big name will be left off the team sheet.

We should start with who we know will play. Petr Cech will start in goal, while Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal, Hector Bellerin, and Sead Kolasinac should play in the defence. Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey are also expected to form the midfield duo.

That leaves us four spots left to predict.

At the back, we could see Shkodran Mustafi return after he recovered from a hamstring injury. He will have a late test to see if he’s ready, but he could come in for Per Mertesacker at the heart of our back three.

Up front, Danny Welbeck is also back. Arsene Wenger tends to favour Welbeck for these types of games, but may be cautious with him due to back-to-back groin problems. Alex Iwobi is another who could play, as he did at Anfield and the Etihad Stadium, but he returned from international duty late.

That means we should see the trio of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette start a big game for the first time.

Lacazette has been dropped for big games before, with Alexis playing as a false nine or Welbeck getting a go. However, I’ll stick my neck out and say that Wenger won’t drop his star striker for two games in a row, especially with Arsenal needing to bounce back from defeat.

The predicted team, in full:

Cech – Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal – Bellerin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Kolasinac – Ozil, Alexis – Lacazette.
