It's a new era at the Emirates, as Unai Emery takes the helm as manager after two decades under Arsene Wenger. The veteran Spaniard has the pieces in place to lead Arsenal's resurgence after two consecutive years without a top four finish. Summer signings Lucas Torreira, Sokratis, Stephan Lichtsteiner, and Matteo Guendouzi should give new life to a previously vulnerable defense, while Attackers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette will look to flourish playing alongside Arsenal's sound group of playmaking midfielders, including 29-year-old Mesut Ozil. The new-look Gunners hope to defy their 25/1 title odds and return to Premier League glory for the first time since 2004. Here, portraits of Arsenal's first team from an August 8 photo shoot in St Albans, England.
