Who will win? RadioTimes.com says…

Rennes had no trouble finding the net in the last round of the Europa League.

Former Newcastle star Hatem Ben Arfa is expected to start for the French side and he will have a point to prove after falling out with Emery while the pair were at PSG.

Alexandre Lacazette will miss the game through suspension but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mesut Ozil have more than enough talent to get the Gunners off to a strong start. The question is: will they display that talent?

Prediction: Rennes 1-1 Arsenal
