Arsenal are back in action with a tough clash against Liverpool in the Community Shield at Wembey - but who will be the dangermen as Mikel Arteta looks to pull off another excellent result against Jurgen Klopp? 

Nicolas Pepe

It was an up and down debut campaign for the club’s record signing, but the Ivorian has shown glimpses of his undoubted ability.  
 
The Gunners will need Pepe to be at his best if they want to make an early statement this season - and the former Lille man will be key to exploiting space left down the right-hand side. 
 
Attack-minded Liverpool will commit plenty of men forward, leaving ample room for the Gunners to hit them on the break and cause problems when they win the ball back. 
 
Arsenal fans will be hoping Pepe’s adaptation to England continues with a stellar performance at Wembley.
 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 

On the opposite flank, the Gunners will need their captain firing on all cylinders to pick up a result against the Reds.
 
However, Auba loves Wembley after his winner for the Gunners in the FA Cup final earlier this month. 
 
Auba's sublime finish for the winner to beat Chelsea 2-1 will live long in the memory - with Arsenal supporters everywhere hoping for a repeat performance against the Merseysiders. 
 
Aubameyang will have to get through plenty of work both forwards and defensively, but more importantly, Arsenal will need him to take the chances that fall his way. 
 
With 22 Premier League goals last term the Gabon international may have to do what he did for most of the campaign and win the game on his own.
  
Kieran Tierney 
 
With the Scottish defender now free from injury, his delivery from wide areas could be key for the Gunners if he is picked by Arteta. 
 
At times it was a frustrating first season in north London for Tierney - but he will be hoping to continue on from his strong finish to the campaign. 
 
A genuine prospect for the Gunners he has shown how dangerous his crosses into the area can be, adding an extra dimension to Arsenal’s attack when he has room to break forward.
