Arsenal have just one stop left on their pre-season tour of the US before they shift their attention to the fast approaching start of the 2023/24 Premier League campaign. The Gunners will take on Barcelona in Los Angeles before they head back home in time for the Emirates Cup clash vs Monaco.

Mikel Arteta has had time to integrate new signings Declan Rice, Jurrien Timber and Kai Havertz and they will be hoping to sign off their time in the States with a win. They opened up their pre-season portfolio with a strong 5-0 victory over MLS All-Stars, but lost out to Manchester United in the second fixture.
