The Gunners are looking sharp and have moved fast in the summer transfer window to strengthen the team with the addition of Gabriel Jesus, who scored a hat-trick on his Emirates debut on Saturday against Sevilla.
Oleksandr Zinchenk was sensational from left-back too, bumping forward to support the attack at every given opportunity.
Fabio Vieira, signed from Porto is back in training while goalkeeper Matt Turner from New England Revolution and winger Marquinos from Sao Paulo have all arrived to add quality and generate competition.
Troubled Matteo Guendouzi and ex-captain Alexandre Lacazette have all left the club permanently as Arteta looks to truly stamp his authority and get Arsenal back to competing for titles.
The changes to the squad has shown in the pre-season with impressive wins against Chelsea and Sevilla evidence of all the hard work that has been done so far.
Arteta not ruling out bringing in more players to keep the team competing
Mikel Arteta is one of the most ambitious managers around and says that he has been impressed with the attitude and quality in his team even though he is looking to add to the squad before the window shuts.
He told reporters after the win against Sevilla: “We are still hoping to do something else if the market allows. You have seen some movement in the last few days as well.
“We want to get the perfect balance and the plan we wanted from the beginning. Whether we accomplish that or not is another story.”
Arsenal will kick off their 2022/2023 Premier League campaign when they travel to Selghurst to play Crystal Palace next Friday.
