Fiorentina mister Vincenzo Montella has kept most of the starters from the International Champions Cup-opening XI out there. The only two changes are Dušan Vlahović at striker instead of Giovanni Simeone and Riccardo Saponara on the left wing instead of Valentin Eysseric.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery has rotated his side quite a bit, with a number of youth prospects and bench options given the chance to impress.
Fiorentina (4-3-3): Drągowski; Venuti, Ceccherini, Ranieri, Terzić; Castrovilli, Cristoforo, Benassi; Sottil, Vlahović, Saponara
Arsenal (3-4-1-2): Martínez; Chambers, Mustafi, Monreal; Jenkinson, Olayinka, Burton, Kolašinac; Nelson; Saka, Nketiah
