CONFIRMED: Starting Eleven and Substitutes for Arsenal v Westham United Match.

All is set for Arsenal's Premier League opening fixture which will kick-off shortly. It will be against Westham United at the Emirates Stadium.

We are bring to you the team that will feature for us in this must-win encounter. Yes, it's a must-win because it will go a long way in defining our season. A good start is all we want.

A very strong team we've got named by Arsene Wenger. Even the bench is a killer. Alexis Sanchez begins from the bench, Theo Walcott also drops to the bench. Olivier Giroud mans the attack while Petr Cech appears in goal for Arsenal for the first time in the English Premier League.

Why Hector Bellerin is out of the team is not yet known. It could be that he is being given a break. Below is the team in full.

Starting XI: Cech, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Cazorla, Giroud

Subs: Ospina, Gibbs, Chambers, Gabriel, Arteta, Walcott, Sanchez.

Also important to note is the feat set to be achieved by two of our players. Laurent Koscielny will be making his 200th appearance for Arsenal today while Cazorla's will be his 150th for the Gunners.

I see Arsenal winning this one comfortably. No sort of insurance will make Westham escape our steaming wrath. Yes, I said so. COYG!!!
