Arsenal vs Atletico Madrid: Probable Lineups – Mesut Ozil Set To Make First Appearance Since Announcing Retirement From Germany National Team

Arsenal kick off their International Champions Cup campaign against Europa League champions Atletico Madrid in the National Stadium, Singapore.

Atleti have a depleted squad after being hit hard by the World Cup, with Antoine Griezmann, Thomas Lemar, Lucas Hernandez, Sime Vrsaljko, Filipe Luis, Diego Costa, Saul, Koke, Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez all on holiday.

Head coach Diego Simeone is expected to give an opportunity to youngsters as a result.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery meanwhile, has a squad available that will probably be pretty similar to the one that starts the Premier League season.

Nacho Monreal, Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira are away but otherwise, this is a strong Gunners side.

Arsenal fans lamented rarely getting to see the LMAO, Lacazette, Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang and Ozil combination at work consistently through the last campaign.

Emery could test out his strongest attacking lineup against Atleti today.

Ozil cut his holiday short to return to pre-season training after an explosive summer in which he quit the Germany national team citing racism and discrimination against him being major factors behind his decision.
