Arsenal begin life after Arsene Wenger in 2018-19 as they embark on a fresh era with a new manager, Unai Emery, at the helm.

Fans have been given a glimpse of what the iconic Frenchman's successor has to offer during pre-season, with competitive action ready to under way ahead of the new campaign.

The north London side were back in the International Champions Cup this summer, which meant they had games against top opposition in Asia and Europe as a warm-up exercise.

This is your complete guide to the Gunners' 2018-19 pre-season and Premier League fixtures, with dates, venues and all you need to know about the upcoming season.

Arsenal's 2018-19 transfer activity


Arsenal have been relatively quiet in the transfer window so far, though arguably their biggest signing and departure happened when Emery replaced Wenger as boss.

The Gunners released long-term squad player Jack Wilshere to West Ham after the midfielder spent 10 years at the club, progressing through their youth academy but struggling to maintain steady match fitness.

They also released Santi Cazorla to La Liga side Villareal, while signing defender Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus on a free transfer. Their biggest signing so far has been in their €29 million (£26m/$34m) coup of Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria.
