Arsenal had an almost Champions League-level season in 2018-19. The Gunners finished fifth in the Premier League and got to the Europa League finals, where they lost to fellow Prem team Chelsea, missing out on a chance to win their way into Champions League play. So it’s back to a Europa League schedule and a lot of Thursday-Sunday play for the Gunners this season, including their opener this Sunday. However, they seem determined this season to change that, as their summer of ambitious signings shows.

Sling Orange + Blue

Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $25 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NBCSN (where many Premier League matches appear), NFL Network, FS1 and FS2, and local channels. (Sling Blue customers in select markets get NBC, where some matches appear; see if yours has it here.) If you’re Team “Why Not Both,” Sling Orange + Blue combines the two for just $40 per month. To add beIN SPORTS and maximize your soccer-watching potential, you’ll want to add either Sports Extra: Sling Orange ($5 per month) or Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month). (The latter also includes NFL RedZone.)

Spanish-speaking viewers have quite a few options. For bilingual families, you might consider the Español: Best of Spanish TV package for either Sling Orange or Sling Blue for 24/7 specialty channel LaLiga TV and beIN SPORTS Connect: Channels 4-9, which features matches from La Liga, Ligue 1 and Copa del Rey, among others. Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial. Sling TV Latino is another Spanish-language package for $10 per month, including NBC Universo, History en Español, and—of import to soccer fans—four beIN SPORTS channels. (And choosing Sling TV Latino + Sling Orange for $30 per month gives you access to ESPN Deportes.) For more information, check out our guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.

Arsenal vs. Newcastle: What to watch for

Supposedly Arsenal was only going to spend $40 million in the summer transfer window, but it’s done much more than that in acquiring rights to some new key players. The most exciting addition may be Nicolas Pepe, the 24-year-old Ivorian winger who helped Lille to a second-place finish in Ligue 1 last year, and will help form a formidable attack with established strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. But one of the most recent Arsenal signings may be the most key when all is said and done: Kieran Tierney, a promising left back from Celtic and the Scottish national team. Arsenal’s got two regular defenders returning from knee injuries, and absolutely needed reinforcements headed into this season.

Newcastle has swapped out manager Rafa Benitez—seen by many as a miracle worker in his time there—with Steve Bruce, who most recently managed rivals Sunderland. It’ll be the first full season for Miguel Almiron, the Paraguayan who dazzled at Atlanta United during his time in MLS; and DeAndre Yedlin, a sometimes U.S. national team player, is still in the squad. Andy Carroll has recently come on board to bring it full circle, having grown up in their academy and starting his pro career with them from 2006 to 2011.
