Arsenal friendlies: Every pre season fixture this summer listed
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will be hard at work, ensuring his club are perfectly prepared for the coming season ahead.
The London side undoubtedly underachieved last season in the Premier League and will have to do much better if they hope to get fans and critics alike off their back as soon as possible.
The Premier League commences on 13 August, and between now and then Arsenal have a number of friendlies already on the calendar.

It ends in defeat in Edinburgh#HIBARS— Arsenal (@Arsenal) July 13, 2021
Arsenal started their pre-season with a trip up north to face Scottish Premiership side Hibernian.
Unfortunately for Mike Arteta's side, they suffered a relatively embarrassing loss with goals from Martin Boyle and Daniel MacKay cancelling out Emile Smith Rowe's consolation as Hibs won 2-1.
The English giants then regained some of their honour north of the border, when they travelled to Ibrox and Arteta's old stomping ground to take on Rangers. Goals from Nuno Tavares and Edward Nketiah ensured a draw in a well-contested match.
From there, the Gunners travel abroad to take part in the Florida Cup.
In their first match they will face Italian champions Inter at the Camping World Stadium.
A few days later they will play the winners in the other match in the tournament between Everton and Colombian outfit Millionarios.
For their final two pre-season matches they will come back to London to face city rivals Chelsea on 1 August and then Tottenham on 8 August.
The fixtures against Chelsea and Spurs are of The Mind Series - a tournament organised to promote mental health awareness.
