The countdown is on as Arsenal prepare begin their 2020/21 Premier League campaign against newly-promoted Fulham at Craven Cottage.
The Gunners make the short trip across the capital aiming to make the perfect start to the new Premier League season and build on last weekend’s FA Community Shield victory over Liverpool at Wembley.

And with pre-season having been much shorter this time around, Arsenal’s players having been putting the hard yards in on the training ground more than ever to ensure they are ready for the big kick-off.

The pictures showed Gabriel and fellow summer signing William Saliba taking part in a drill with a line of players undergoing sprints with a rope tied around their waists.
