Wilshere starts at Stamford Bridge
Arsene Wenger has opted to start with Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby in midfield against Chelsea today, while summer signing Sebastien Squillaci is captain for the Gunners.
Poland international Lukasz Fabianski keeps his place in the starting XI after impressing at Partizan, but Denilson, Rosicky and Djourou drop to the bench.
Arsenal will want to produce evidence that they can be serious challengers to Chelsea after being brushed aside twice by Carlo Ancelotti’s side last season.
Sagna – Squillaci – Koscielny – Clichy
Wilshere – Song – Diaby
Nasri – Chamakh – Arshavin
Subs: Szczesny, Djourou, Eboue, Denilson, Rosicky, Emmanuel-Thomas, Vela.
