The Arsenal boss will be hoping to build on his first season at the north London club that culminated in winning the FA Cup.

Despite their success towards the end of 2019-20, Arteta has been keen to bolster his squad after a disappointing domestic campaign in which they finished eighth. 

Their trip to face the newly-promoted Cottagers on Saturday will be the first 2020-21 game to be played in England’s top flight.
