With Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal both ruled out through injury, Danny Welbeck was trialled by Emery at left-back in the build-up to Sunday's game at Emirates Stadium.
Bernd Leno seems set to start ahead of Petr Cech in goal.
One of the quartet will take the armband in Monday's (AEST) Premier League opener against Manchester City, given Koscielny remains sidelined with the ankle injury that ruled him out of France's triumphant FIFA World Cup campaign.
Raheem Sterling (Manchester City): Started six of England's seven matches in the World Cup without getting on the score-sheet, but within 14 minutes of the new Premier League season he had already registered for his club to underline just how Pep Guardiola gets the best out of him. Although it's obvious he wants Arsenal to play the ball out from the back, one wonders if a more direct approach might have enabled them to bypass City's midfield.
Cech made several saves to keep Arsenal in the game but also seemed to struggle a bit when playing with his feet, almost scoring an own goal in the first half when he mishit a back pass from Guendouzi.
"We wanted to show our performance but it is clear against Manchester City we could not give them this win". Who knows, they could be City's greatest challenge if they come through the first two fixtures unscathed.
"I said to him when he [Welbeck] arrived with us after the holidays, I want the best performance in his career from this player - and to work for that", he said.
"He has a lot of things to improve".
Arsenal have turned to Unai Emery to replace Wenger at the north London side following the Frenchman's 22 seasons in charge.
"It was a shame we couldn't finish off our counter attacks and overall we're disappointed with the defeat". After years of Arsenal largely playing the same way regardless of the opposition, Emery's approach at the Emirates will be somewhat more reactive. "And today is the first step in that". The Brazilian, signed from Napoli for a reported fee in the region of £50million, was the coolest player on the pitch as he skipped to the ball, forced Ben Hamer to drop to his right, and then calmly slotted the ball the other way. It was a fantastic game for us, so now we have to keep going.
"We spoke at half time about taking more responsibility for the second half, to do a little more".
We've all seen how nonchalant Hazard can be when scoring from the spot, waiting for the goalkeeper to move and commit himself before casually rolling the ball in the opposite corner.
