Arsenal missed out on a Champions League qualifying place last season and will be busy preparing for the 2019/20 Premier League campaign with a top four spot in mind, with Unai Emery entering his second season with the north London club.

The Spaniard could only steer the Gunners to fifth in the table last season, finishing a point behind fourth-placed Tottenham although it might be a blessing in disguise that they don’t have the distraction of the Champions League this time around.

However, there hasn’t been a huge amount of summer transfer activity so far, with Gabriel Martinelli the only arrival and the £6 million signing from Ituano isn’t exactly going to get the juices flowing.

Similarly, Laurent Koscielny has effectively refused to take the tour of the United States as the Frenchman tries to engineer a move away from Arsenal and it’s a bombshell for the team as the central defender is also the club captain.

However, there are several first-team players making the trip and we think that the Gunners can probably avoid defeat at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the joint-top scorer in the Premier League last season and can form an effective strike partnership with Alexandre Lacazette, while Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are among the players who also travel.

Bayern are effectively a week behind Arsenal in their preparations considering that the German club don’t start up their season until a few days after their opponents and it’s clear that the Bundesliga champions haven’t got a completed squad either.

Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery are both no longer at the club and it’s likely to be former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry who will line up for this encounter, with Bayern seeing this more as a warm up game.
