Last season's runaway champions provide the opposition at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal begin a season without Frenchman Arsene Wenger in the dugout for the first time since 1996.

Arsenal appointed Unai Emery as the new manager of the gunners in May and the Spanish worldwide has already started making a number of changes at a club which has been under the management of Arsene Wenger for two decades. The team won its third Premier League title (and fifth English top-flight trophy overall), while setting more than 10 new Premier League records along the way, including for most points (100), most goals (106), most wins (32) and the biggest winning points margin (19).

The Gunners appointed the Spanish head coach as their new manager at the end of the 2017-18 Premier League season following a hard campaign. "The Arsenal squad is not worse than those of the other teams".

And it has been claimed the forward could leave Arsenal on deadline day in order to play more football next season.


Lehmann also gave a surprising compliment to Spurs by comparing them to the youthful Arsenal sides that he was a part of between 2003 and 2008.

Arsenal's director of high performance, Darren Burgess, has provided an insight into Arsenal's training in pre-season. Many young and interesting players.

The Italian takes his side to Huddersfield Town on Saturday where Kepa Arrizabalaga, the world's most expensive keeper at 71 million pounds ($91.43 million), is set to make his debut. "Arsenal will look at a new keeper in one or two seasons".

"Alisson is certainly a good man, but not a world-class keeper you'd expect for this price". He was a true fan favourite at Highbury (and subsequently when they shifted grounds, the Emirates), being crowned PFA Player of the Year.
