Ahead of the weekend we’re bringing you a comprehensive timetable for everything Arsenal related, from the first-team to the youth side, the women and the loanees.
Kicking the weekend off are the Arsenal u18s, who play Reading at the Shenley Training Centre on Saturday at 11am. The young Gunners will be hoping to bounce back from their disappointing collapse against Manchester United in their last game.
Next up, Takuma Asano could feature for Stuttgart in their 2:30pm match at home to Augsburg. Asano has already made six appearances for the Bundesliga side.
Then come the 3pm kick-offs. In total there are three involving Arsenal loanees. Birmingham City, fresh from the sacking of Harry Redknapp, are away to Derby. Carl Jenkinson is injured but Cohen Bramall may get a chance, after being left on the bench for Birmingham’s last game.
Marc Bola finally got his first league start last week against Wigan, so he could be involved again as Bristol Rovers play Blackpool at home. Meanwhile, Stephy Mavididi could get a chance for Preston North End against Millwall at Deepdale Stadium.
With the 3pm matches out of the way we move onto Sunday. First up it’s Lucas Perez and Deportivo at 11am, with a match away to Espanyol. Depor desperately need a win, sitting 18th in the table, so it would be a good time for Lucas to get the first goal of his return to Spain.
Kelechi Nwakali could continue his record of appearing in every game for VVV-Venlo since his move, when the side from the Netherlands take on Zwolle at home at 1:30pm.
Arsenal Women play the first match of the new WSL campaign against Birmingham City at Meadow Park at 2pm, after their emphatic 3-0 win over Everton in their final pre-season game. You can see how they got on in the transfer window here.
After that it’s back to Spain, as Emi Martinez could play for Getafe at home to Villarreal at 3:15pm. However, it’s unlikely, as Emi hasn’t made a single competitive appearance so far.
On Monday, the u23s play Everton at 7pm, in an away match at Southport FC. The academy side are currently second in the Premier League 2 table, so they’ll want to keep their run going.
Finally, the Arsenal first team take on West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates later on Monday at 8pm.
The game will be televised on Sky Sports main event. At the same time, Joel Campbell could be in action with Real Betis at home to Levante, although he is still recovering from his summer knee injury.
