Arsenal first game of the season leaked and it could be tricky

It appears that the opening games of the Premier League have been leaked online and while we have not been handed an away tie at Manchester City it is still a tricky first game of the season.

Apparently, we will be away at Crystal Palace on Saturday, August 10th and that is far from a given three points.

In fact, compared to the other top-six teams it can be argued we have got the most difficult game, though City away at Wolves will not be a walkover either.

Full list of opening day games

Saturday, August 10

12: 30 Tottenham v Norwich

15:00 Bournemouth v Sheffield United

15:00 Crystal Palace v Arsenal

15:00 Everton v Newcastle

15:00 Southampton v Chelsea

15:00 Watford v West Ham

17:30 Burnley v Liverpool

Sunday, August 11

13:30 Aston Villa v Leicester

16:00 Manchester United v Brighton

Monday, August 12

20:00 Wolves v Manchester City

Now, these games are far from being official, they are from a leak according to the media but the chances are they are correct and we will know for certain tomorrow when the full fixture lists are published.

Last season we had Man City and Chelsea in our first two games and lost both and even though we went on a very decent run after that we still found it difficult to overcome that losing start to the season and it is imperative that we get off to a winning start.

Palace are definitely beatable but if we carry over our away form from the last two seasons then without a doubt, we are very beatable, that is certainly how Palace will see it.

  1. Let’s face it, losing to Arsenal is now a sackable offence these days. Never mind our position in the table, everyone knows we play like bottom-of-the-League fodder with a squad that are only happy to sit and collect their salaries.

  2. I wonder how many times Liverpool will be shown this season, even though City are the champions!!
    If that’s right then, I wonder if Zaha will be in our colours or not

    No Gooner should worry him or her self as to whether Arsenal playing at away at Selhurst Park to Crystal Palace on the opening day of the new season in the PL will beat them or not. For, I can more than assure every Gooner that the will be properly revamped and rearranged Arsenal first team squad this summer will certainly beat the will be depleted in top quality players Crystal Palace first team squad this summer in the replicate manner that the Arsenal FC Gunners team beat the Cottagers – Fulham team at Craven Cottage last season in the PL to start the next new season’s campaign in the PL on the front foot.

  4. At the present time I wouldn’t be confident if we were playing a Palace at home, let alone away.

  5. the players matter not the opposition… what the coach learned last season is important for the upcoming season.

    quicky sign new players and allow those leaving to leave… blending starts. period
