14 June 2018

New boss Unai Emery has been given the proverbial baptism of fire with his Gunners to host champions Manchester City before travelling to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea.

Although the clubs wouldn't normally break out all of the big guns for pre-season friendlies such as these, it could be a good chance to see some of the future stars that could take the Premier League by storm in years to come.

The pair are among six Premier League clubs in the competition, with Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool also competing.

Liverpool's start appears more challenging.

The Reds are set to kickstart their league season at Anfield for the first time since 2014-15 having been scheduled to face Manuel Pellegrini's team on August 11.

And 2019 faces an explosive start with Liverpool due to travel to the Etihad for what promises to be another key game in the battle for the title next season. Games against newly-promoted trio Wolves, Cardiff and Fulham are part of a sequence which also includes Huddersfield, Newcastle and Brighton - the three teams who came up the previous season.
