Watch a pre-season special of The Breakdown

During what has been an eye-catching summer on and off the pitch, The Breakdown has been closely following our pre-season matches to see how Mikel Arteta is evolving his squad and their style of play.

Now, with the campaign kicking off this Friday night at Crystal Palace, Adrian Clarke has poured over hours of match action to give us plenty of insight and analysis as to what we might expect to see going into the game at Selhurst Park, and the early weeks of the season.

He's run the rule over our new signings and what they offer, what William Saliba adds to the side, dissects Aaron Ramsdale's distribution and has his say on Gabriel Jesus' impressive start to life in a Gunners shirt.

Watch it all in our season preview by clicking play above.

You can hear much more from Adrian as part of our new Breakdown Live pre-match show, starting an hour before kick-off against the Eagles.

Nick Bright and Adrian will be providing the perfect build-up for any Gooner from our brand new studio at Emirates Stadium, while Frimmy grabs the views of our supporters from Selhurst Park.

When it’s kick-off time, we’ll hand over to Dan Roebuck and Josh James to provide commentary on all the action, with half-time and post-match coverage following. 

It all starts at 7pm BST, and can be seen live on and the official app.
