Arsenal will continue their preparations for the new season when they face Premier League rivals Chelsea in the Florida Cup on Sunday, July 24.
The Gunners kicked off their pre-season with a 5-3 victory over Nurnberg during a training camp in Germany before they beat Everton 2-0 in Baltimore on the first leg of their USA tour.
New signing Gabriel Jesus, who joined Mikel Arteta's side from Manchester City earlier this month, scored a goal in each game to make a promising start to life at the Emirates Stadium.
The honours were shared between the two capital clubs in the top flight last term, with the Blues running out 2-0 victors away from home on August 22 and their neighbours winning 4-2 at Stamford Bridge on April 20.
The north Londoners have the slightest edge in recent head-to-head meetings, recording five wins in their last 10 encounters as opposed to four for Chelsea.
Arteta is pleased with the early impact made by Jesus and is looking forward to seeing what the Brazilian striker can do once he becomes more familiar with his new team-mates.
"He creates chaos, he creates uncertainty and he's always on your shoulder," the Spaniard said after the win against the Toffees. "He's always there to nick the ball off you, he's always in front of the goal.
"He's a real threat and this is what we need. And then he's the one. The moment we give the ball away he is straight away active and putting pressure and getting his team behind him.
"He has a lot of leadership skills, I can see straight away what he's doing with the boys and he's the type of guy that we want."
