Arsenal are determined to fight for all trophies in the new season as the Premier League runners-up begin their 2023-24 campaign against treble winners Manchester City in the Community Shield, manager Mikel Arteta said on Friday.

Arsenal’s title challenge crumbled last season in the face of a relentless City, who have won three successive top-flight titles before winni­ng their maiden Champions Le­ague crown in June. They will now look to seek reve­nge in Sunday’s traditional cu­rtain-raiser to the Premier League season at the Wembley.

Arteta, 41, served as assistant to Pep Guardiola at City from 2016-2019 before taking the reins at the north London club and leading them to the FA Cup trophy in his first season in charge.

Arteta said he wants his team to build on the momentum from last season and elevate it to new heights.

“Very excited to play a final to win a trophy, we are playing against the team to beat,” Arteta told reporters.

“This is what we want (a new era for Arsenal), fighting for every trophy. We have to prove that. What we did last year was not enough to win the big trophy, and we have to be better. We have to try and maintain the level and improve it for them (fans).”
