Arsenal’s next five fixtures compared to Manchester City, Man Utd, Newcastle and Tottenham

Arsenal’s next five fixtures compared to Manchester City, Man Utd, Newcastle and Tottenham

In a match against fellow Premier League title contenders Manchester City, Arsenal suffered their fourth consecutive game without a victory, losing 3-1 at Emirates Stadium. The defeat pushed Mikel Arteta’s side off the top of the league table for the first time this season.

Kevin De Bruyne scored the first goal for City, taking advantage of a mistake from Takehiro Tomiyasu.

However, Arsenal managed to fight back and equalised just before half-time through a Bukayo Saka penalty, which was awarded after Ederson fouled Eddie Nketiah.

City came out strongly in the second half and retook the lead with a goal from Jack Grealish, after Gabriel Magalhaes lost possession. Erling Haaland then sealed the victory for City with a close-range shot after receiving a pass from De Bruyne.

With both teams now on 51 points, the race for the title has become more competitive, with several other teams hoping to challenge for the top spot.

As the title race enters a crucial stage with numerous points on the line, it’s worth examining Arsenal’s next five matches compared to those of their main competitors.

Aston Villa (A) – Premier League – February 18

Unai Emery, who was recently appointed as the manager of Aston Villa, will face his former team at Villa Park. The match is expected to be a challenging encounter for the north London club. Emery, who replaced Steven Gerrard earlier this season, will be eager to come out on top against his old club.

Leicester City (A) – Premier League – February 25

Facing Leicester City away is always a challenging match, and Arsenal will need to be in top form in order to secure a favorable outcome at the King Power Stadium. 

Although this has not been the strongest season for Leicester, players like James Maddison, Harvey Barnes, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Patson Daka all pose a significant threat, making this fixture a potentially high-scoring match.

Everton (H) – Premier League – March 1

Following their defeat to Everton, Arsenal is set to face them again at Emirates Stadium, in a fixture that was originally scheduled for September.

Everton had managed to stifle Arsenal’s attacking threat in their previous encounter, and Mikel Arteta will be hoping to avoid a repeat of that outcome.

Everton is expected to play defensively, looking to counter-attack the Gunners, so Arteta’s side will need to find a way to break them down and secure a much-needed victory.

Bournemouth (H) – Premier League – March 4

It is always important to approach every game with the right mindset, regardless of the opposition’s position in the league table. 

Bournemouth have proven in the past that they can cause problems for the top teams and Arsenal must be prepared for a difficult match. Arteta will want his players to focus on their own performance and execute their game plan effectively in order to secure a positive result.

Fulham (A) – Premier League – March 12

With the Premier League being as competitive as ever, every match is a challenge and the Gunners will need to be at their best if they are to maintain their title challenge.

 It will be interesting to see how they perform in these key fixtures and whether they can come out on top to maintain their title ambitions.
