If you want goals on opening weekend, Arsenal may be the team to watch.
That's because for the last two seasons in a row, the Gunners have opened with a seven-goal thriller.
Never have there been more goals in a Matchweek 1 fixture.
It remains to be seen whether under their new head coach, Unai Emery, the north Londoners will play in such an open fashion.
Emery's Paris Saint-Germain side did plunder 108 goals on their way to winning the Ligue 1 title last season, 23 more than their nearest challengers.
But Arsenal do face Manchester City on 12 August.
Pep Guardiola's side broke a Premier League record by scoring 106 goals on their way to the title last season and the Gunners will be hard-pressed to keep the defending champions at bay.
