Arsenal play their second friendly of pre-season against Western Sydney Wanders on Saturday.

With players looking for match fitness ahead of the new season, there’ll be plenty of changes from Thursday’s friendly against Sydney FC.

Arsene Wenger confirmed after the match that David Ospina, Laurent Koscielny and Aaron Ramsey will all feature after missing Thursday’s game.

Wenger had decided to not take any risks with Koscielny as the centre back is suspended for Arsenal’s first two games of the season.

Likewise, he’s decided to make sure Ramsey is built-up gradually to ensure there isn’t a repeat of his hamstring problems from last season.

The rest of team could be made up of the players who didn’t start on Thursday.

That includes the likes of Nacho Monreal, Mohamed Elneny, Granit Xhaka, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alex Iwobi, Alexandre Lacazette and Olivier Giroud.

Arsenal may also switch to a back four, as Wenger said he would experiment with different shapes this pre-season.

Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson could also feature again after impressive performances against Sydney FC.
