The Gunners face Rafael Benitez’s men on Sunday, August 11 and will look to kick start their pursuit of Champions League football with three points.
Arsenal’s first home game of the season takes place six days later and will see them welcome Burnley to the Emirates.
The Gunners then face tough back-to-back games against Liverpool and their bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur, the latter of whom the face at home.
Arsenal announced their fixtures on Twitter, and their fans responded in droves.
One fan wrote: “Liverpool and Spurs in August back to back I hate my life.”
Another said: “Liverpool away early. Saves the heartache of being battered for Christmas.”
Arsenal’s poor run of form towards the end of the season well and truly sapped the morale of fans of the north London club, which is still at an all-time low.
“I see bare L’s,” a pessimistic Gooner wrote.
“Knowing our luck we gonna lose the last 5 games,” said an equally downbeat Arsenal follower.
Another said: “Liverpool and Spurs in the first 4 and last 4. Good job we’ll have nothing to play for.”
One Gooner doesn’t see Emery’s troops picking up many points in their first six fixtures, saying: “That’s like two points out of 12 points in August.”
Surprisingly, one of the Emirates faithful is happy the Gunners face Spurs early doors, saying: “What a derby at home in August” alongside a fire emoji.
