With pre-season over, Arsenal will look to make the best possible start to their 2020/21 Premier League campaign when they travel to Fulham on Saturday at 12:30 PM.
The Gunners suffered a disappointing league season in 2019/20, finishing down in eighth, 10 points adrift of Chelsea in the final Champions League spot.
However, the improvement in their performances following Mikel Arteta’s arrival in the dugout was there for all to see and that culminated in Arsenal sealing their 14th FA Cup title, knocking out Manchester City in the semi-final and beating Chelsea in the final.
Arteta’s men have since followed that up with a 4-1 pre-season win over MK Dons, a penalty shootout win over Liverpool in the Community Shield having draw 1-1 in normal time, and a behind-closed-doors match against Aston Villa which reportedly ended in a 3-2 defeat.
Now, though, it’s all about hitting the ground running as they start their Premier League campaign, with the Gunners intent on qualifying for the Champions League for the first time since 2016/17.
Arsenal have a tough set of opening fixtures, so their curtain-raiser against newly-promoted Fulham will be of vital importance.

Arsenal player in focus: Bukayo Saka
2019/20 was a real breakthrough campaign for highly-rated youngster Bukayo Saka, who did brilliantly to secure minutes at left-back and left-wing, making no fewer than 26 Premier League appearances and a further six in the Europa League.
Saka managed three goals and 10 assists during those league and European outings, bursting up and down the left flank with endless reserves of energy and, even at the tender age of 19, proving he already has the skill and composure to produce a final ball in the offensive third.
While Saka hasn’t made the breakthrough into the senior England squad just yet, there is high demand for another left-footer in Gareth Southgate’s set-up. Aside from his goals and assists, Saka created 21 chances in just 1,753 minutes of Premier League football last season, while at the other end of the pitch, he made the third-highest number of tackles (36) among Arsenal players.
Continue in this vein and Southgate won’t be able to ignore Saka for much longer.
