Arsenal have added to their squad this summer with the signings of Bernd Leno, Sokratis, Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi and Stephan Lichtsteiner, and they will be hoping to build on last season’s sixth-placed finish under former manager Arsene Wenger.
Aaron Ramsey has returned to training but left-back Sead Kolasinac is out for 8-10 weeks with a knee injury.
Long-term absentee Laurent Koscielny is aiming to return to training at the end of the year.
