The Gunners finished eighth in the table last season and fans are expecting major improvements as Mikel Arteta continues his squad rebuild

Arsenal kick off their 2021-22 Premier League season with, on paper at least, a kind fixture against newly-promoted Brentford.

Things quickly become tricky for the Gunners, however, with their second match a home date against Champions League winners Chelsea.

It doesn't ease up after that either, as they then must travel to face Premier League champions Manchester City at the Etihad.

Key Dates for Arsenal Premier League 2021-22 Fixtures

*Mikel Arteta's side, who finished a disappointing eighth in the Premier League table, then have a London derby at the Emirates against European champions Chelsea on August 21, before going to current champions Manchester City on August 28.

*A trip to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal on Saturday, September 11 is followed by the visit of fellow promoted side Watford on Saturday, September 18 to conclude our first five fixtures.

*Arsenal's first north London derby comes on the weekend of September 25 at home to Tottenham, while the return fixture will be on the weekend of January 15 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
