The releasing of the fixtures also revealed who Arsenal would have to face without a number of their players due to the African Cup of Nations taking place during the forthcoming season.

Arsenal have a number of players from Africa, including Thomas Partey, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Nicolas Pepe and Mohamed Elneny.

And, that quartet are now set to miss the second North London Derby of the season, which takes place on January 15th.

They are also expected to miss out on a home meeting with Burnley:
