Arsenal need a good lead before the League title run in, with Man City’s schedule looking much easier

After coming close to league glory in the past two seasons, Arsenal is determined to finally clinch the league title next season and put an end to their 21-year drought. The Premier League fixtures were released on Tuesday morning, revealing the dates and locations for our matches next season.

Opinions on the fixtures vary; some find them favourable, while others do not. Personally, I think from these fixtures, it’s clear Arsenal should aim to win the league early in the season and avoid a tense contest in the Premier League run-in.

It’s pretty clear that Manchester City is our biggest rival. When you look at their last 11 fixtures for next season, it’s difficult not to notice that they have a pretty fair run in the Premier League run-in. Other than the matches against Manchester United and Aston Villa, Manchester City’s remaining 11 games of the season are ones they, on paper, should be able to win.

Arsenal, on the other hand, has some challenging fixtures in the PL run-in. As you’ll see below, they’ll be facing off against Manchester United, Chelsea, Newcastle, and Liverpool in their last 11 league games.

It’s pretty obvious that Arsenal needs to maintain a significant lead in the title race from Match Day 1, because every point will matter in the Premier League run-in.

  1. Just the same like last campaign. Really not good news for Arsenal. It’s why they need 2 defensive midfielders. This run in is when players are already all worn out. So you need a strong squad to cope.

    Absolutely we need 2 vibrant midfielders, an attacker and a left back; probably a Saka back up also.

    It’s better to buy Guirassy. He’s good and cheap. That will give room for additions in other areas without facing the axe of FFP. Buying Osimhen will take away a chunk of the investment with little room for improvement in other areas.

    If not Guirassy, it should be Zirkzee. Those 2 are affordable

  2. I hear you but as they say one game at a time, we can’t be thinking about the run-in at this stage. A lot will depend about the form of the other teams during that period of the season, for instance who knows by then Liverpool for example might be in shumbles ? Or maybe Everton might be competing in the top 4 ?

  3. The latest news is Arsenal to bid £30 million for Connor Gallagher to partner Rice for arsenal as he sometimes does for England. Chelsea may be willing to sell for £30 million as they have already turned down bids if £20 million from other teams.

  4. City again with a favourable run in, always lucky this lot. oh well if we are gonna break that drought might as well do it in spectacular fashion.

    1. Man C are so good in the run that they beat everybody no matter who they are

      so perhaps better they play [on paper] easier teams in the run

      that way the [on paper] better teams play them earlier in the season when they are more likely to drop points

      all nonsense anyway as every one plays every once at home and once away, the order of those 38 games makes little difference

  5. The draw has nothing to do with it. Just get the job done in the EPL and make sure you have enough strength in depth to cover the Champions League group stage , and the Nothing Cup knockout out games so that our key players are not over played.
