Arsenal’s next six Premier League fixtures compared to Tottenham, Manchester United and West Ham

5

There will still be plenty of disappointment among the Arsenal camp as a new week gets underway after the Gunners somehow came away with nothing against Manchester City on Saturday.

Despite Mikel Arteta’s absence, they arguably put in their best performance of the season at the Emirates Stadium in the first match of 2022, only for a mad couple of moments in the second half to ultimately cost them three points.

But positives are still plentiful, however, and Arsenal remain fourth in the Premier League. Champions League football is looking like a more realistic goal with each passing week.

There is still a long way to go and the likes of West Ham, Spurs and Manchester United will push them all the way. With that being said, football.london compares Arsenal’s next six Premier League games to their rivals.

Tottenham (A)

A potentially decisive moment in the battle for the top four awaits following the FA Cup weekend when Arsenal and Spurs clash in the second North London Derby of the season.

The Gunners comfortably dispatched their rivals earlier in the season but there is no doubting the improvement made under Antonio Conte in the time since.

A win for Spurs would see them leapfrog Arsenal into fourth and still boast two games in hand on their arch-rivals. There is plenty riding on this one.

Burnley (H)

Saturday, January 22, will see relegation-threatened Burnley visit the Emirates Stadium in the top-flight.

Arsenal have shown great improvement when it comes to dispatching teams with ease that they should be beating and similar will be expected against Sean Dyche’s men.

They have not always found it easy against the Tykes however, winning just one of their last three Premier League clashes with the north west side.

Wolves (A)

The reverse fixture was postponed after Christmas but Arsenal will finally get to test themselves against a resolute Wolves on February 10.

Bruno Lage has steadily improved his side following a rocky start to the season and has shown they can be a stubborn foe when faced with the a ‘big-six’ side.

Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City have all come up against Wolves in recent weeks but have managed to find the net just twice between them.

Brentford (H)

Revenge will be on the cards for Arteta when Thomas Frank takes his side to north London in February.

The opening day saw Arsenal humbled by Brentford, a match which saw the Gunners dominated by the newly-promoted outfit and trigger a dreadful string of performances.

However, things have improved immeasurably in the time since and three points will be expected at the Emirates Stadium. Ben White may also be looking to prove himself a tougher opponent to Ivan Toney as well.

Watford (A)

Who will be in charge of the Hornets when Arsenal visit in March is unknown.

Claudio Ranieri took over shortly before the Gunners beat Watford at the Emirates Stadium at the start of November but with the club sat just two points above the relegation zone, his position is far from safe.

By the time of the fixture, Arsenal will have a much better idea of where they will finish the season and fans will be hoping that the trip to Vicarage Road will take them a step closer to the Champions League.

Leicester (H)

The Foxes were expected to be ahead of Arsenal in the race for the top-four, having come close on the last two occasions, but that has not been the case.

As things stand, Brendan Rodgers’ men sit in 10th place and 10 points behind Arsenal. Injuries have ravaged Leicester this campaign and they boast one of the leakiest defences in the top-flight.

But Jamie Vardy loves playing against the Gunners and if he returns to fitness for the match, the visitors will know they will have a chance.
