Let’s have a look at Arsenal’s last games of 2023 – Could we win them all?

How important are Arsenal’s next 5 games?

Arsenal currently sits on top of the table and after last night look in with a chance of pushing the cap from Manchester City and Liverpool even further with both clubs dropping points last night. As the Christmas period approaches, Arsenal will look to continue their good form and the next 5 games will be an important part of the season if they want to lift the Premier League title at the end of the season.

With five Premier League games left in the year, every point becomes important for Mikel Arteta and his Arsenal squad. Starting off the season in great form and have only lost to Newcastle away at St James Park, this looks to be our season and with other teams around us not looking as confident and dangerous, this really could be our season and if we walk away from this busy Christmas period winning all five games, I don’t think anyone can stop us making a title charge.

Our next game is against Luton away at Kenilworth Road, Luton have had a rough start to the season but has just recently looked a bit better and currently sit just above the relegation zone. What on paper should be an easy game for Arsenal and will hopefully be the start of a must-win period.

Then we travel to Villa Park to face off against ex Arsenal manager Unai Emery and will be set for a huge clash! Villa has looked good this season and the Villa squad seem to have really bought into Emery’s plan ad will be looking to burst our bubble but as long as we keep playing like we have I think we can walk away with the three points.

Then we welcome Brighton to the Emirates in what will be another spicy clash, Brighton and De Zerbi who unlike last year have had some struggles this season and have looked really off and on, but like everyone else, they will be looking for the three points.

Then the a big one, when we travel to Anfield to face off against Liverpool in what could be an important game for both sides. Liverpool rarely lose at home so it will be a massive challenge for Arsenal to walk away with the three points but if we can manage to do so, it could be the catalyst of a title charge in the second half of the season.

Then we welcome West Ham to The Emirates in the last game of the year and hopefully by then we’ve walked away from the last four with all 12 points and make it 15 before the year ends. If we manage to win all five games in December, I don’t think anyone can stop us from lifting that trophy.

What’s your thoughts Gooners?

  1. Villa(4th), Brighton(8th) and Liverpool(2nd) are all very difficult games with Villa being only 4 points behind us and Liverpool being 2 points behind us currently.

    If we can get 2 wins and a draw from those 3 I’ll be very happy

    1. And that’s why we have the toughest fixture remaining among the contenders. We have a real chance of losing that top spot but essentially we need to be there near the top and not fall far behind so that we can reset and accelerate in second half of the season. But if we get that mental grittiness and grind out results and maintain that top position after these 5 matches then we can truely dream to lift that title.

  2. Make it break it, almost.

    Luton away, the “easiest” of the bunch should be certain 3 points although it won’t come easy.

    Two insanely tough away games against Villa and Pool. 4 points here would be absolutely tremendous. Away to Annfield in my book is the toughest fixture in the whole league. Defeat there is not the end of the world.

    Home matches BHA and WHU should be winnable if we keep focus for 90 minutes.

    If we can get at least 10/15 from these matches, it’s a fine run IMO. I don’t think there are many clubs going 15/15 in December,if any.

  3. I want to optimistic every time but lack of creativity in the middle of the park is the biggest challenge. Its very rare for our strikers to receive clean balls, especially against difficult teams. Arsenal are defending very well but they struggle to break down teams. Against Newcastle our statistics show and tell a very sad story. I am struggling to figure out whether it is the system or the players.

  4. Good morning all
    Titles aren’t won in December but they can certainly be lost in December.
    If we turn up with our game face on, then we can beat any team in front of us…..home and away
    We have proved to be more mature in our game play this season. I beleive MA and the team learned a lot about our self’s coming in 2nd
    If we are within touching distance of city in April , then game on and we will run them all the way to the finish line
    I have said it before here it is not “if but when” we win the title and this season could be the seaso n it comes back home.
    I beleive pool will play a big part in the title run in as well so bring it on

  5. Luton Town (A) : Must win

    Aston Villa (A) : Must win

    Brighton (H) : Must win

    Liverpool (A) : A draw would be good enough, but a defeat would be understandable as long as we win the previous three EPL games

    West Ham (H) : Must win

    Fulham (A) : Must win

    1. To be in the run in to win the title that’s prob the best outcome we can hope for. If we win at Anfield then I think that could be the boost in confidence to go on and win it.

      Don’t forget there is other big games for City & Pool to play also in December.

      Champions League also in Feb so how we do now is absolutely vital but let’s be honest we havnt been great and grinded results out which is a good sign that we havnt hit top form yet considering we did that from Oct – Mar last season then ran out of steam. Slow and steady wins the race, hopefully we have learned from last season.

  6. I think we will beat Luton and West Ham. Villa, Brighton and Liverpool will all be difficult matches. Hopefully we will get 15/15 points but my realistic guess is 11 out of 15

    All are winnable and losable
    Hopefully we win win win

  7. If we win this 5 games of the remaining of this year it will be a big celebration for us because that’s mean are gonna lift up the EPL cup 🍶 this 2023/24 and I don’t even think any of this games can be hard for us to win if arteta and his guys really want a big praise and congrat and it’s only Liverpool that can give us a hard time from this 5 games and I thought at worst we and Liverpool should play draw

  8. Take each match as they come. You are only as good as your last match. With the congestion of matches leading up to Christmas, anything can happen. Especially should injuries arise. Bare in mind that Arsenal will be WITHOUT Takehiro Tomiyasu for the month of January until the 11th of February due to The Asian Cup Tournament

    1. You have the best comment thus far in my opinion. We must focus on one match at a time. We must fully focus on Luton, then Aston Villa and so on. Not doing so is a major reason why the 3rd placed club in the league can drop points against the 17th club in the league, etc. and amaze the clueless pundits. If we look ahead and become distracted I can almost guarantee we will not win the league. Tomi will be a huge loss. He is so talented and dedicated and we always know we will get his best no matter what position or responsibilities on the pitch we need him to cover.

    2. Hello, pjennings. Still looking forward to your article as you promised. Anxiety is killing me! Where you at?

  9. The best way to approach these six games is to pick them off one game at a time, they are all winnable games, let’s beat Luton First.

    The law of average dictates its right time to win at Anfield, so am not the least bit worried about Klopp and his boys.

  10. Luton – 3
    Aston Villa – 1
    Brighton – 3
    Liverpool – 0
    West Ham – 3


    I pray we will all 5 though.

  11. We are most likely not to win them all as trips to Villa park and/or Anfield will be where we most likely will drop points, i’m rest assured about tomorrow’s game and the home fixtures. All in all i see no lower than 10points ahead of the new year. COYG!

  12. Aston Villa are in a fine vein of form but will it last? They have a tough fixture in mid week against City and then against us on Saturday although both are home toes. They also fought back to draw away to Bournemouth
    We have the “luxury” of Luton away and an extra day to recharge our batteries
    Liverpool should be the biggest threat having a strong goal difference and one win less only than Arsenal

  13. Hopefully 15/15 could be brilliant. What I want to see is us fighting to the end. Game per game and giving our all each game.

  14. I would count the Liverpool game as the most challenging of the bunch.. But this year this Arsenal team has an added grit about them.. I’m not as pessimistic going to Anfield as I normally would be… Its just not easy to beat this Arsenal team these days… With the expansive style both Liverpool and Villa play.. Especially at home I see both ties being potentially entertaining goal laden affairs… I wud be OK with a draw at Liverpool but a win wud be tremendous… Not to overlook Villa… But we have a bit more quality than them and if we stick to our game plan we shud be ok

  15. I still don’t see Liverpool as the force they were two years ago. Their defence is vulnerable and Salah is not as dangerous as he used to be. At our end we now have Rice, and Saliba is back ( fingers crossed). Also remember that we had Liverpool on the ropes away at Anfield and let them off the hook tamely last season ( who can forget. Partey, Xhaka and Odegaard! Where were you three in the second half?). I hope that’s a lesson learnt. Our biggest problem will be creativity and having someone make the most of the few opportunities that we create.

    1. Count off Salah at your own perril joe. His stats tell a different story. He is a consistent perfomer. And it’s unfortunate that he isn’t given much mention an recognition he deserves.

  16. We can but it won’t be easy.

    Luton- should be a formality as long as the players have the right attitude and aren’t complacent.

    Aston Villa- will be very difficult because they have a strong midfield and a pacy Frontline however I still back us to outscore them with their leaky defence. We can definitely exploit their highline.

    Brighton- we always tend to struggle against them at home for some reason but given their poor form and injuries I think we should beat them this time round.

    Liverpool- this one could go either way tbh. Once again we are battling against recent history of not winning there since 2012 but I do think last season showed we can and having Saliba and Rice this time round bodes well. There attack is very lethal so it will be interesting to see how our brilliant defence copes with them and should they be able to then the front four can we win the game for us.

    West Ham- again will be a challenge but I still expect us to win relatively comfortably.

  17. That away games against Villa and Liverpool don’t get tougher than that. Both are flying high at home. A great exciting test for the young gunners. This is EPL and these are title deciding games. It’s either we have what it takes to win it or not. I’m looking forward to these. No room for complacent against Luton and the Hammers though.

  18. Even if we get 12-14 points from the remaining 5 games this year, I would consider it a success and we could be real title contenders come May. I would consider Liverpool away to be our toughest asignement but I am confident we will come away with atleast a draw if not a win.
