Review

Pre-season

July

Arsenal began their off-season by completing some squad alterations. Bernd Leno, Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, Eddie Nketiah, Emile Smith Rowe and Matt Macey all received new squad numbers, the latter five being promoted to the first team from the academy.

Arsenal’s pre-season tour in America got off to a shaky start with club captain, Laurent Koscielny, refusing to travel. He believed that over his 9 years of service to the club, he had earned the right to terminate his contract despite still having a year left. This lead to the club taking disciplinary actions, which included stripping Koscielny of the club captaincy.

Arsenal’s first summer signing was young Brazilian forward, Gabriel Martinelli, for a £6,000,000 fee. The summer was dominated by headlines stating that Arsenal’s transfer budget was only £45,000,000. Despite lots of major outlets reporting on this, it was revealed that the budget was actually closer to £100,000,000. The lack of budget and ambition from owner Stan Kroenke, lead many fans to grow infuriated, and begin protesting his ownership with the hashtag #WeCareDoYou.

On 15 July Arsenal began the pre-season tour with an emphatic 3–0 friendly win over Colorado Rapids with Martinelli scoring on his non-competitive debut. The Arsenal players featured were mostly youth players with Mesut Özil, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also involved, being introduced from the bench.

On 17 July, Arsenal played against Bayern Munich in California in the 2019 International Champions Cup and prevailed 2–1 with Eddie Nketiah scoring the winning goal. Three days later the Gunners continued this winning form with a 3–0 victory over Fiorentina in Charlotte with a brace by Nketiah and a goal by Joe Willock. Three more days later Arsenal faced Real Madrid in Landover in the Gunners' third and final International Champions Cup match. Arsenal were leading 2–0 through Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but Real hit back with the troubled Gareth Bale halving the deficit and Marco Asensio scoring the equaliser. The match ended 2–2 thus resulting in a penalty shootout with the Gunners subsequently losing 3–2. In addition both teams ended the match with 10 men. This meant that Arsenal finished in 3rd place, their best ever result in the competition.

On 25 July, Arsenal completed the signing of French teenage centre-back William Saliba from Saint-Étienne for a reported fee of £27 million. However, he was loaned back to the French club for the 2019–20 season. Arsenal also completed a season-long loan deal for Spanish midfielder Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid.

On 26 July, Arsenal pair Mesut Özil and Sead Kolašinac were involved in a carjacking attempt by a gang of armed robbers in London near Golders Green, where there was footage of Kolašinac chasing the gangsters. Both players were targeted by the gang but it was confirmed by the club that the pair escaped uninjured and were safe.

On 28 July, Arsenal played in the Emirates Cup for the first time since 2017 but lost 1–2 at home to French team Lyon. The Gunners failed to win the Emirates Cup for the first time since 2014.

On 31 July, Arsenal played a friendly game against Angers who were celebrating the 100th anniversary of the French club's establishment. The match ended in a 1–1 draw, meaning a penalty shootout had to decide the winner. The Gunners won the shootout 4–3 with Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez saving the decisive spot-kick from ex-Arsenal player Jeff Reine-Adelaïde.

August

On 1 August, Arsenal made the signing of Ivory Coast winger Nicolas Pépé from Ligue 1 team Lille for a club record £72 million.

On 4 August, Arsenal also played against Barcelona on the Joan Gamper Trophy at the Camp Nou. The Gunners lost 2–1 with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring the only goal in the first half giving Arsenal the lead going into half time. However, a horrible own goal from Ainsley Maitland-Niles and a 90th minute winner from Luis Suárez gave Barcelona the win in Arsenal's final pre-season fixture.

On 6 August, then-captain Laurent Koscielny left Arsenal to join Ligue 1 club Bordeaux for a reported fee of £4.6 million after nine years at the club.

On 7 August, Carl Jenkinson left the club and joined Nottingham Forest for a fee of £2 million. The following day, transfer deadline day, the Gunners signed left-back Kieran Tierney from Celtic for a reported £25,000,000 fee and centre-back David Luiz from Chelsea for a reported £8,000,000 fee three hours later.

Rules for classification: 1st points; 2nd goal difference; 3rd number of goals scored.
(C) = Champion; (R) = Relegated; (P) = Promoted; (O) = Play-off winner; (A) = Advances to a further round.
Only applicable when the season is not finished:
(Q) = Qualified to the phase of tournament indicated; (TQ) = Qualified to tournament, but not yet to the particular phase indicated.

a. Manchester City were banned from all UEFA club competitions for the 2020–21 and 2021–22 seasons by the UEFA Club Financial Control Body on 14 February 2020 due to breaches of the UEFA Financial Fair Play Regulations. The decision was appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on 26 February 2020.
b. Since the winners of the EFL Cup, Manchester City, are banned from European football for next season (subject to an ongoing appeal process at CAS), the spot given to the EFL Cup winners (Europa League second qualifying round) would be passed to the seventh-placed team.
