Arsenal FC - 2019/20 Squad
With the 2019/20 approaching, Arsenal have some weaknesses to address, but they also have some star power up front in the form of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The duo are two of the best forwards on the planet and will need to be at their very best again if Arsenal are to be celebrating in 2020.
Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka, Matteo Guendouzi and Mesut Ozil give Unai Emery options in the middle third, while youngsters like Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Eddie Nketiah are expected to improve in 2019/20.
Hector Bellerin, who is recovering from injury, is the big name in defence, and 2019 summer acquisition Bernd Leno will start the season as number one.
In the summer transfer window, goalkeeping legend Petr Cech retired and long-time Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey left the club to join Juventus on a free.
Who Were Arsenal's Top Scorers Last Season?
1. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 31 goals
2. Alexandre Lacazette – 19 goals

Who Owns Arsenal Football Club?
Arsenal are owned by American businessman Stan Kroenke.
Kroenke, who also owns the Los Angeles Rams and Colorado Rapids, bought out Alisher Usmanov’s share in 2018 to become Arsenal’s lone shareholder.
What Are Arsenal's Biggest Rivalries?
Arsenal, as with most teams in London, have several rivals. None come bigger than their north London foes Tottenham Hotspur.
The north London derby is one of the highlights in any Premier League campaign and it’s a rivalry that Arsenal have dominated until the last few years. Before 2017, Spurs hadn’t finished above Arsenal since 1995.
Chelsea are another of Arsenal’s rivals in the capital, and that flourished in the early part of the 2000s as Chelsea challenged Arsenal’s place as London’s strongest club.
The clubs went toe-to-toe for a top four spot in 2018/19 and we can expect more of the same in 2019/20.
The Arsene Wenger and Alex Ferguson duels saw Arsenal and Manchester United develop a high-profile rivalry as they fought for trophies in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
It isn’t quite what it was, with both managers retired and neither team competing at the very top, but their matches still stand out when the fixtures are released.
What Are Arsenal's Highest Player Salaries? How Much Is The Club Worth?
According to Spotrac, Arsenal’s wage bill for their playing staff stood at a shade under £128 million for the 2018/19 campaign.
The Gunners are unlikely to add significantly to that this summer but will still have room to spend having lost Cech and Ramsey’s salaries.
Arsenal, per Forbes, are valued at $2.3 billion, making them the seventh most valuable club in the world, just behind Chelsea and marginally ahead of Liverpool.
Starting in 2019/20, Adidas will be Arsenal’s kit manufacturer on a contract worth £300 million over five seasons.
Arsenal's Most Memorable Moments & Greatest Achievements
Arsenal have a rich history, winning multiples league titles in the 1930s and holding the record for most FA Cups won.
The highlight, however, came in 2003/04 when they completed the first – and it remains the only – unbeaten top-flight league season in English football history.
Wenger also achieved league and cup doubles in 1997/98 and 2000/01, the second and third doubles in club history.
There was a long trophy drought around the Emirates Stadium move, but Arsenal have returned to silverware-winning ways in recent years, lifting the FA Cup in 2014, 2015 and 2017.
Follow the latest Arsenal betting tips on 888Sport’s blog to find out if we think they will be lifting another trophy in 2020.
Arsenal Fan Profile
Arsenal fans get a lot of stick for a lack of atmosphere at their home matches. Their attendance numbers are always good, however.
In recent years there have been protests against both Wenger and Kroenke - Arsenal Fan TV are now very well known in the wider football community!
The Gunners have plenty of famous fans from Olympic champion Mo Farah to Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and rapper Jay-Z. ‘One-Nil to the Arsenal’ is one of their most famous songs.
Emirates Stadium, London
Arsenal play their home matches at the Emirates Stadium in north London and have done since leaving Highbury.
The Emirates has faced plenty of criticism, and Highbury has fond memories for the Arsenal faithful. The stadium was opened in October 2006 and has a capacity of just over 60,000 people.
Former Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis led a program of ‘Arsenalisation’ of the stadium in 2009 in an attempt to make it feel more like home, which included large murals depicting Arsenal legends around the stadium.
Famous Arsenal Legends
Going back through Arsenal’s history, they have a catalogue of club icons, including Cliff Bastin, who held the club’s top scorer record for several decades and played on multiple title-winning teams in the 1930s.
The modern era is obviously where the most recognizable names are like Tony Adams, Lee Dixon, Ian Wright and Robert Pires. That’s without mentioning Arsenal’s greatest ever player Thierry Henry and Dutch superstar Dennis Bergkamp.
