Positive pre-season so far

The Gunners have enjoyed a largely positive pre-season, with the team gaining vital minutes and producing some good displays. The performances of the likes of youngsters Emile Smith-Rowe and Matteo Guendouzi have been particular highlights at times.

Having impressed during this summer’s pre-season, Emile Smith Rowe has signed a new long-term deal with Arsenal.
