New boss Unai Emery has been given the proverbial baptism of fire with his Gunners to host champions Manchester City before travelling to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea.
Two of England's biggest clubs in the world will face off against each other in the Aviva Stadium on 1 August.
City, who amassed 100 points and 106 goals en route to finishing 19 points clear of Manchester United in 2017/18, do not face another top six side until the trip to Liverpool in October.
Nuno Espirito Santo's men won the Championship title at a canter this past season, dominating for most of the campaign and nearly notching up a century of points along the way.
Among the final round of matches, scheduled for May 12, Manchester City are at Brighton - where they started last season - while Cardiff and Wolves are at Manchester United and Liverpool respectively.
The Reds are set to kickstart their league season at Anfield for the first time since 2014-15 having been scheduled to face Manuel Pellegrini's team on August 11.
Tottenham, who will join City, United and Liverpool in the Champions League next season, begin their campaign at Newcastle for the second successive season before hosting Fulham a week later. That hasn't, however, stopped the club preparing our pre-season plans.
