Rob Holding has acquitted himself well in Arsenal's pre-season schedule and today the opposition improves with Manchester City the opponent.
Arsenal's starting line-up with one week until the start of the season was Cech, Monreal, Holding, Gabriel, Bellerin, Coquelin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Iwobi, Ox, and Sanchez. With Olivier Giroud still recovering from his Euro 2016 exertions, Alexis line-up as a central forward. The other item of note is that Wenger has been inclined to play two more holding players at the base of midfield between Coquelin, Elneny and Xhaka as opposed to the more mixed passing/defending duo of seasons past that featured Cazorla/Ramsey/Arteta next to Coquelin/Elneny. It will be interesting to see if this becomes more of a trend for Arsenal or if it is due to the absences of Welbeck, Giroud, and Ozil from Euros and the fact that Cazorla played extensively against Viking FK.
