After ending their nine-year silverware drought in May, Arsenal can add another trophy to their cabinet by beating Manchester City in the Community Shield this weekend.

However, the Wembley curtain-raiser ranks low on the Gunners’ agenda for the new season.

Having tasted FA Cup success, the North London club want more and, while qualifying for 17 successive Champions Leagues is very impressive, a top-four finish alone will no longer cut it.

Here, we take a closer look at Arsenal ahead of the 2014-15 campaign.
