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.

I've said many time that I'm not a special guy but I am so good at working, working, working, and they have to work too'. Maybe Liverpool , Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea can do their job better - but if we do our job, we will be there.
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 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.
