Four Premier League fixtures confirmed for Arsenal

Posted on June 10, 2020 by Harry Kettle

It’s been a long three months, but we’re now just a week away from the official return of the Premier League – and with that comes the return of Arsenal. Now, in addition to knowing who will be first up for the Gunners, the PL has confirmed the first four fixtures that will be taking place for the club as they attempt to edge their way into the European conversation.

The following statement has been released by Arsenal.com.

“We will return with a trip north to face champions Manchester City on Wednesday, June 17, with the match broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Next up is a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion three days later, following by another south coast match at Southampton on Thursday, June 25.

The last game that has been confirmed by the Premier League is our home match against Norwich City on Wednesday, July 1 at 6pm.

Details as follows:

Manchester City v Arsenal
Wednesday, June 17
Kick off: 8.15pm (UK)
TV: SKY SPORTS

Brighton & Hove Albion v Arsenal
Saturday, June 20
Kick off: 3pm (UK)
TV: BT SPORT

Southampton v Arsenal
Thursday, June 25
Kick off: 6pm (UK)
TV: SKY SPORTS

Arsenal v Norwich City
Wednesday, July 1
Kick off: 6pm (UK)
TV: BT SPORT”

While there’s no way of getting around the fact that the City game is going to be incredibly tough, and that it’s the definition of a tall order for Mikel Arteta in the first game back, the three following that game seem much more appealing. There’s no guarantee whatsoever that the Gunners are going to come away with as many as nine points from these four games, but realistically, that should be the target.

Everyone knows it’s going to be difficult, but it’s what needs to happen. For fans who are used to attending fixtures on a regular basis, they’ll be pleased to know that they can catch the games from the comfort of their own homes – and that includes the 3pm kickoffs on a Saturday afternoon.

This isn’t going to be the kind of football we’re used to seeing and everyone knows that, but at the very least, this gives us the opportunity to bask in the glory of the beautiful game for however long this era lasts. Who knows, maybe we’ll all start to get used to the idea of having no fans in the stadium – then again, maybe not.

How do you believe Arsenal will fare in these four encounters?
