The Premier League fixtures are out, and Arsenal have a pretty brutal start ahead of them.

[REPORT: Emery’s Arsenal given tough start as Premier League fixtures announced]

New boss Unai Emery has been given the proverbial baptism of fire with his Gunners to host champions Manchester City before travelling to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea.

It could hardly be a more arduous start to the domestic campaign for Emery, and fans gave the full range of emotions on social media in response…

Oh yes, and Mikel Arteta will be on the touchline at the Emirates Stadium at the start of the new season after all…

It’s going to be a tasty start to the season.

Can we now please just focus on the WORLD CUP, though?!
