After a six-year wait, Arsenal are finally back in the Champions League as they make a return to Europe's elite in this season's edition of the competition. Mikel Arteta's side have stumbled through the Europa League and even spent one season without any continental football, but things have changed.
Last campaign, the project exploded into life as the Gunners made a sustained challenge for the Premier League, sitting top for the majority of the year. They were pipped at the end by Manchester City, but a second-placed finish has set them up for another attempt, as well as a Champions League return.
With the group drawn and preparations now ready for this Wednesday's tie with PSV Eindhoven nearly complete, the time is here for the theme tune to ring and the football to do the talking. With that said, here's a look at things that will definitely happen on Arsenal's return to the Champions League.
