A look at Arsenal’s first six Premier League games 0

Posted on July 06, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Whilst we may still be in the midst of Euro 2020 and Copa America, it certainly feels as if there’s momentum building for the start of the new Premier League campaign. We’re just over a month away now and all 20 teams will be gearing up for what could prove to be the most competitive edition of the EPL yet.

Prior to all that, though, we thought it’d be interesting to take a look at the first six Permier League games of the season that Arsenal Football Club will have to face.

Arsenal have confirmed that they’ve agreed to take part in a charity tournament at the very end of the pre-season period, organized by UK mental health charity Mind. It will be a three-way contest named ‘The Mind Series’, between London clubs, with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur as the other two participating teams.

The clubs involved are determined to use their huge global reach to promote mental health awareness as the world gradually emerges from the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. The lockdowns imposed throughout the world will have impacted many in this aspect.

Milan eye replacement amid Arsenal interest in Calhanoglu 0

AC Milan are interested in signing Jonathan Ikone from Lille, according to reports in Italy. Apparently, the 23-year-old Frenchman, who prefers to play on the right attacking flank but can do well in any role supporting a striker, is being considered as a good candidate to replace Hakan Calhanoglu, whose contract with the Rossoneri is about expire. Many now believe that Calhanoglu is indeed on his way out of San Siro, and there is reported interest from both Arsenal and Chelsea in bringing the 56-cap Turkey international to London.

Willian keen on Chelsea return 0

Willian joined Arsenal from Chelsea as a free agent last summer. The Blues reportedly worked very hard to extend his contract but refused to offer him a three-year deal, complying with their well-documented policy of being extra careful with long-term contracts for players over 30.

The addition of Willian to Mikel Arteta’s ranks for free seemed like a shrewd move at the time – a proven player of vast Premier League, Champions League and international experience, one off whom younger attackers could potentially pick up a few tricks, but who could also give direct, notable contribution on the pitch. However, things have turned out quite differently, and according to Sky Sports, the 32-year-old winger is being placed back on the market and keen to return to Stamford Bridge only a year after leaving it.

With Arsenal quite literally having nothing left to lose this season, it only made sense for them to well and truly put their best foot forward against Chelsea last night. In the end that’s exactly what they did, and they managed to beat the Blues 1-0 and give themselves a slim chance of qualifying for Europe next season.

What version of Europe that’ll be is another conversation altogether but for now, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta rightly wants to focus on the positives – as he did in his post-match press conference.

Arsenal face a crossroads in their run under the guidance of Mikel Arteta. While they’ve been able to win an FA Cup under his leadership, they haven’t quite been able to live up to the hype in the Premier League or Europa League. Now, with just a few league games remaining, the Gunners need to win them all if they’re to stand any chance of playing European football next season.

Their next test will be Chelsea tonight and as you can tell by Arteta’s pre-match press conference, he’s feeling up for it.

Arsenal’s Premier League run-in 0

The Premier League season is slowly but surely coming to an end and for Arsenal fans, that has to be seen as a blessing. This has been a really poor campaign for the Gunners and while some optimistic supporters will still feel as if the top six is within touching distance, we tend to believe that isn’t the case.

Still, there’s no harm if the club giving it everything they’ve got across their last four league fixtures, which is why we’re here today to take a look at those games and what we can expect to see from Arsenal.

It’s been a tough few months for fans of Arsenal Football Club to round out 2020, but as we look ahead to the remainder of 2021, it does feel like there are some reasons to be positive. Mikel Arteta is starting to show signs of life as Gunners boss and with the January transfer window now upon us, it’s time to see whether or not Arsenal can really build a squad that wants to fight for this club.

Arsenal were on a dreadful run of form prior to the weekend, but out of nowhere, they were able to pull off arguably their best result of the season so far as they beat London rivals Chelsea at the Emirates. The win may not entirely take the pressure off of Mikel Arteta’s shoulders, but it definitely proved what this side are capable of.

Arteta spoke to the media after the match as fans prepare for a really quick turnaround before the Gunners take on Brighton.

While everyone loves seeing Arsenal play every weekend, it can sometimes be nice to sit back and see what else is on offer whilst we wait to see what the Gunners can do on Monday Night Football. We’ve already seen a handful of intriguing games take place across the Premier League, especially including teams that Arsenal will be battling it out with in the top four race, with Manchester United and Chelsea both struggling despite late goals that helped them to pick up three points and one point respectively.
