It all looked doom and gloom for Arsenal at the beginning of the summer.
A disappointing end to the 2018/19 season means there will be no Champions League football for a third straight year at the Emirates Stadium.
And to make matters worse, it emerged that Arsenal would go into the transfer window on a very limited budget.
However, fortunes can change very quickly in football and as the 2019/20 Premier League season begins, things are looking good for the Gunners.
They’ve signed highly rated winger Nicolas Pepe, midfielder Dani Ceballos on loan from Real Madrid as well as William Saliba and Gabriel Martinelli.
And Arsenal had an exceptional deadline day where they brought in left-back Kieran Tierney from Celtic as well David Luiz from rivals Chelsea for a mere £8million.
