Arsenal’s next five matches compared to Man City, Man Utd, Newcastle and Spurs

Arsenal’s next five matches compared to Man City, Man Utd, Newcastle and Spurs

Everton defeated Arsenal 1-0 at Goodison Park, diminishing Arsenal’s chances of winning the Premier League.

On a disappointing afternoon in Merseyside, Mikel Arteta witnessed his team suffer its second loss of the season.

Sean Dyche defeated Arteta in his first game in charge of Everton, preventing the Gunners from breaking through the Toffees’ resolute defensive formation.

Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey were dominated physically by Amadou Onana, Abdoulaye Doucoure, and Idrissa Gueye for the duration of the game.

Neal Maupay was once again the villain against the Gunners as he infuriated Oleksandr Zinchenko late in the game after receiving a VAR-aided foul  despite seemingly tripping Gabriel Magalhaes in the penalty area.

Arteta has urged his players and Arsenal supporters to remain calm as preparations for next week’s match against Brentford at the Emirates Stadium commence.

The north Londoners continue to lead the standings by five points, but Manchester City has the opportunity to close the gap to just two points by the end of the week as they prepare to face Tottenham on Sunday.

Following Arsenal’s disappointing 1-0 loss to Everton, SportsDias examines the Gunners’ next five matches in comparison to their primary rivals this season.

Brentford (H) – Premier League – February 11

Arsenal will face Brentford following their defeat to Everton, with the hope of repeating their 3-0 win against Brentford from the last time the two sides met, which was after a loss to Manchester United. 

Brentford has been a standout team this season, vying for a European football spot in the league standings.

 Ivan Toney is a prominent attacker, but Bryan Mbeumo is also a potential danger for Arsenal’s defense. Meanwhile, David Raya has been performing well in goal for Brentford. Before a crucial match against Manchester City, Arsenal will look to secure a positive result against Brentford.

Man City (H) – Premier League – February 15

The highly anticipated match. In their first encounter this season, Arsenal lost to City and were eliminated from the FA Cup.

 Arteta will hope that his team can seek revenge and maintain a crucial edge over City in the championship race by avoiding defeat. Guardiola’s team has the opportunity to close the gap to the top of the Premier League this weekend, and they may even be ahead of Arsenal when they meet, if Brentford manage to spring a surprise at the Emirates Stadium in the days leading up to their title battle.

Aston Villa (A) – Premier League – February 18

Unai Emery will face his former team, Arsenal, at Villa Park in what is expected to be a challenging match for the London club. 

Villa appointed Emery as their manager earlier this season, replacing Steven Gerrard. The Spanish coach will be eager to get the better of his former team.

Leicester City (A) – Premier League – February 25

Leicester is always a challenging away match for any team, and Arteta will need his players to perform at their best to secure a positive outcome at the King Power Stadium.

 This season has not been the best for Leicester, but players such as James Maddison, Harvey Barnes, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Patson Daka are all dangerous and capable of producing high-scoring results.

Bournemouth (H) – Premier League – March 4

Although Bournemouth is considered to be the most manageable fixture in Arsenal’s upcoming schedule, they should not be underestimated. 

These types of matches can often cause disruptions in a championship campaign and Arteta knows that his team must be prepared for a battle, as Bournemouth is fighting against relegation.
