How many points will Arsenal get from the first 3 League games?

What’s the realistic points target from the Gunner’s first three matches?

Football fans can hardly contain themselves this week as we get ready to kick off yet another season and do it all again. Every team has their aspirations and goals that they’d like to achieve this year and, of course, Arsenal are no different. Champions League football and a cup or two is definitely on the agenda, but many are hoping for a little more and would like to mount a serious title charge.

So let’s see where the Gunners could be come the end of August. The three teams that stood in the way of the London team’s perfect nine point start were Leicester (H), Stoke (A), and Liverpool (A). We managed to scrape through a dramatic first game, and for Lacazette to score so quickly on his debut was promising, but we could do without many more of these heart-stopping fixtures but we now have two daunting away fixtures to build on that win.

Arsenal were 1/2 on bet365 to beat the Foxes, and all signs were looking good for a win in front a home crowd. Big signing Alexandre Lacazette had the international football betting community behind him to make a big splash at the Emirates and he was 10/3 to be the first goal scorer of the season. That was a very good bet as he only took 94 seconds to give Arsenal the lead!

Next up they will head to the bet365 stadium to take on Stoke. Always a tough game away but Stoke had a rough go of it last season and finished 13th with only 44 points, their lowest total since 2013. The Potters will be hoping Sadio Berahino can start firing in front of goal, with the striker yet to score since arriving from West Brom back in January. Manager Mark Hughes has faith in the forward though and is urging supporters to give him time to settle in. However, due to their form at the end of last year, Wenger should be looking for another 3 points here to continue their winning start.

Week 3 offers the first major test for the club when they make the formidable trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool. The Reds are rarely not at their best when playing at home and this will be a tough afternoon for the Gunners. They have made some smart investments this summer and added more to their already potent attack. The Reds signed Mohamed Salah from Roma for £34 million and young U23 England international Dominic Solanke from Chelsea, to add to already large array of attacking options for the club.

This will be incredibly tough to win and Arsenal supporters would probably be happy with a draw for this fixture. Seven points would be a pretty good start to Arsenal’s campaign this season, especially getting the always tricky trip to Anfield out of the way nice and early with the fanatical Scousers behind their team.

Would you be happy with 7 points from the first three games?

The best livescore service around!

    We could get all 9, if we can somehow manage to have an atmosphere of positivity and faith around the club. Reds aren’t without their own problems. This could be done.

  2. goonerwinit

    I will tell you after the 3 games are done … with us you never know. YOU REALLY NEVER KNOW!

  3. Uzi Ozil

    We could get three points after three games.

    We could get six points after three games.

    We could get seven points after three games.

    We could get nine points after three games.

    It depends on the Arsenal side that turns up and take their chances. We lost our first game last season 4:3 and won our first game 4:3 this season. It’s time we change things a bit with a good run. Let’s do fifteen points after first five games. COYG!

    Probably seven points which is fine with me. Facing Stoke away earlier in the season is probably the best time to face them, I think we can win that game. Liverpool match… hard to predict, since they are such open games. We haven’t beaten Klopps Liverpool yet either.

  5. John0711

    I more worried about us Making the necessary signings to improve the failings of last season
    I don’t care who goes out anymore if they don’t want to stay fine. But if the promises are broken again” we want to win the PL and CL ” BS
    I’m done
    I will always support Arsenal but I won’t fund the breaking of a great club

    7 points is fine – a draw at anfield is to be expected while cech tries to regain composure between the sticks – anfield is not likely to be a walk in the park.

  7. Mr pat

    It’s looking like 7 points in the first three games, Liverpool trip will be nerve-racking considering our defence which Mr know it all hasn’t managed to fix,

  8. HydrogenDwhiz

    Liverpool is beatable by arsenal and I think we the fans will he happy with nothing less than a victory
    that’s when you know a team who is contending for a title, by beating other title contenders.
    i think we’re good up front,
    we only need to coordinate the defence against Liverpool attack.
    I believe we can thrash Liverpool at home

    1. Godswill

      Well, I absolutely believe we are leaving Anfield with 3 points.
      We are Arsenal and we shall be so.

  9. Willy007

    Per and mustafi coming back the defender should be solid.. if Sanchez doesn’t play he is as good as gone. We should embrace it in good fate. If we turn up like we use to we ll beat stock 3:1 arsenal win my prediction.

  10. kehinde raji

    liverpool are not invincible as can be seen in their game against Watford. Moreover i expect Arsenal to go to Anfield with full force having known that Liverpool would just be coming from the second leg of their champion league qualifier. We can do it at Anfield 9 point on the troth

  11. Raoh

    I would be happy with 7 points though with the defensive struggle and Coutinho unlikely to feature when we play Liverpool we should set ourselves as a goal 9/9 points possible.
    Sanchez should be in contention to start, which means that we could field him alongside Ozil and Lacazette with Ramsey and Xhaka in the middle.
    As well, Mustafi and most probably Koscielny in defence will be fit and available to play which in turn should make mosre stable with more pace and experience at the back with either Monreal or Per completing the back 3.

  12. Quantic Dream

    Everton spending 140M, Spuds buying a 40M defender….the league is going to be tough this time…

  13. amb98

    OT- Matuidi is going to Juve for only €20m. Absolute bargain. Although age 30, he is exactly what we need in our midfield. Mobility, drive, tenacity, experience and a willing mentality. Would have been a perfect partner for Xhaka. I am worried that we will not sign a CM or CB.

  14. Alan

    Would love to know what happened to the rebuilding of the team. Two in and one of them was a free transfer. I really hope we do well but we are well behind other big clubs in transfer business

  15. Joe Llabtoof

    I still read about this great need for a CB even though Arsenal currently have Per, Kos, Mustafi, Gabriel, Holding and Chambers = 6 CBs. Certainly that is enough.

    If, however, this is an issue of insufficient quality at CB then at least one CB must go out when a new CB is acquired.

    Kos is considered one of the best, Mustafi just arrived for a high fee while Gabriel and Chambers were also not cheap acquisitions. Arsenal also paid a high fee for DM Xhaka. So I don’t see any way Wenger will want to spend more on the defense.

  16. Ivan

    This is an interesting test for Wenger and will give us an idea what the rest of our season will be like. If he can get the team organised and well prepared we should win easily at Stoke who are limited and pip Liverpool who have their own problems. However we had a dog fight against Leicester who are not a top team and my fear is Wenger will not improve his game tactically to help the players match the usual physical thing we will get at Stoke or the energy of Anfield.
    Please no excuses any more for Wenger as he has the team he wants (even if some of us would add a player or two particularly a DM.

  17. Drayton

    9 points. Good to get Stoke before they settle in, and we should have some defensive solidity returning. If Liverpool are without Coutinho Lallana maybe Clyne, and we have Alexis back, we should take advantage and win, Anfield or not. 9 points and nothing less.

  18. Ack77

    7 points is very good if u ask me. remember liverpool were the best of the top teams last season. 7w 5d against top 7 so a draw would be better than twice losing to them than last season. I’ve watched their match against watford and had it been us instead of liverpool it would be a draw, they were unlucky in front of goal sometimes with headers on the post and an marginally offside goal for watford.

    stoke should be beatable. last stretch of last season we beat all our nemesis, man u, stoke away, Southampton away and everton. more of the same please.
