Arsenal vs Juventus LIVE: Kick-off time, TV channel, confirmed team news, How to watch.
Live coverage of Arsenal’s public mid-season Premier League preparations at the Emirates Stadium, as Mikel Arteta’s Gunners face Juventus in a friendly.
Arsenal will play their final public friendly before returning to the Premier League against Juventus. Massimiliano Allegri, the manager of the Serie A team, has been connected with the Arsenal post ahead of the appointment of Mikel Arteta in 2019.
It will be the first opportunity for Matt Turner and Granit Xhaka to play since their World Cup appearances. However, for Takehiro Tomiyasu, Gabriel Martinelli, and Bukayo Saka, the game may arrive too soon.
Aaron Ramsdale did train with the side ahead of the visit of Juve although again it will potentially be too soon for him too. Eddie Nketiah will hope to score in two of the three games with Gabriel Jesus of course out for the long term.
Mikel Arteta and Edu will both be looking at the squad’s weaknesses as the January transfer window approaches. The Gunners have a strategy for the winter, and they will want to strengthen as they compete for the Premier League crown.
The Gunners will need to build momentum. Arsenal won all of their preseason friendlies previous to the start of the season, and a three-win streak might have the same effect ahead of their Boxing Day encounter with West Ham United.

Arsenal team news
The win over AC Milan presented the chance for Ben White and Thomas Partey with the chance to return to action after their representation at the Qatar World Cup. Tonight, there could be cameo appearances from Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsdale after they returned to London Colney this week.
