Petr Cech has been dropped for Arsenal’s opening Champions League group game against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.
Arsene Wenger has opted to play David Ospina in goal as the north London club look to start off their Champions League campaign in positive fashion in Paris.
The Frenchman has also decided to play without a recognised centre-forward, with Alexis Sanchez relied upon to get the goals ahead of authentic spearheads Olivier Giroud and Lucas Perez.
Here is the Arsenal line-up to face PSG in the Champions League as posted by the club’s official Twitter account:

The Gunners put on a late show at the weekend to come out 2-1 winners against Southampton at the Emirates.
Theo Walcott, who did not travel with the squad, is another omission from the starting line-up, with Arsene Wenger opting to play Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alex Iwobi out wide.
In defence, Wenger has kept the same backline that played at the weekend, with Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi starting at the heart of the club’s defence.
Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin start in central midfield, with Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny on the bench.
