Arsenal supporters have taken to social media after spotting what they believe to be a clue ahead of the Gunners’ opening Premier League fixture.
Mikel Arteta’s side make the short journey across London to Craven Cottage where they will be looking for three points against newly promoted Fulham.
The Gunners will be hoping to make a winning start to their campaign, with Arteta no doubt keen to build upon the momentum of winning the FA Cup at the end of last season, and then the Community Shield against Liverpool several weeks ago.
The north Londoners have been in pre-season mode for several weeks with warm-up games against MK Dons and Aston Villa to help regain match sharpness.
The Villa match at the Emirates ended in a 3-2 defeat, but saw Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang net a brace to carry on where he left off against Jurgen Klopp’s side at Wembley.
Summer signings Willian and Dani Ceballos also made appearances, with Ceballos playing less than 24 hours after signing another season-long loan with the club. Nicolas Pepe was also in action, after missing the Community Shield clash entirely.
With the match against Fulham fast approaching, some Arsenal supporters took to social media to speculate on Arteta’s line-up for the game at Craven Cottage – based on an image posted by the club Twitter account.
The picture was of Arteta during a training session, with the Spaniard holding a piece of paper.
Fans zoomed in on the paper, with many pointing out that it appeared to say “Pepe” and “Laca” in the front front three, with Nicolas Pepe on his natural right wing spot and Alexandre Lacazette through the middle.
