A look at Arsenal’s first six games of the season 0

The Premier League is set to return next weekend as the Gunners prepare to make another push for the top four – and potentially even beyond. It’s been a strong start to the season with the Community Shield win, and things are about to get even more interesting.


This is the kind of game that should be viewed as a must win, and with Fulham being a newly promoted side that are still trying to work out what their best starting XI looks like, we’re going to assume Arsenal will pick up all three points. It may not be particularly convincing, but it’ll be enough.

Arsenal may be playing in the UEFA Europa League this season, but the manner in which they exited this year’s competition left many wondering whether or not they’re ready to dive back in at that level – or whether it would’ve been more beneficial to have a year away from Europe. Either way, they aren’t going to feature in the last eight of the knockout tournament in Germany.

Nobody thought they could do it, but when it mattered the most, Arsenal pulled a rabbit out of the hat and beat Manchester City to progress into the final of the FA Cup. After this monumental win, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta spoke to the media as the club looks ahead to another trip to Wembley.

On trusting the process:
Yes, we are really happy for what happened in the last four or five days, to beat probably the best two teams in Europe is not an easy thing to do. A lot of credit goes to the players for what they are doing and the performances and the level of fight and decision-making they are showing on the pitch.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is well aware of the task that lies ahead of him as the Gunners prepare to face Manchester City in their FA Cup semi-final this evening. Prior to kick-off, Arteta spoke with the media and gave his thoughts on the game.

On whether he can target Manchester City’s weaknesses:
That’s what we will try to do as much as possible. Like any other team, they have some weaknesses as you mentioned and as well, it’s about stopping their strengths, which they have a lot of. This is part of any game plan, it’s not about City or any other opponent that we’re facing, and tomorrow we will do exactly the same.

It’s been a long old season for Arsenal Football Club, but on Saturday night, they will face arguably their toughest and most important test to date when they square off with Manchester City at Wembley. The two giants of English football will be competing for a place in the final of the FA Cup, which is a competition both sides have been able to thrive in over the course of the last decade or so.

You never really know what is going to happen in a game of this magnitude, but today, we’re going to try and put forward our own prediction as the Gunners lock horns with one of the most dominant sides in world football.

While the FA Cup may not be viewed as a competition that has all too much of a spark left these days, we still think there’s something to be said for just how much the fans enjoy watching the drama unfold. This past weekend, we saw four fascinating quarter-final matches take place as Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United all booked their place in the final four.

Arsenal were never really favourites to beat Manchester City at the Etihad on the first day of the Premier League being back in action, but the manner of the 3-0 defeat does leave somewhat of a sour taste.

Coach Mikel Arteta organized his team initially in a 4-4-2 shape, with Shkodran Mustafi joined by Pablo Mari in the heart of defence, flanked by Kieran Tierney on the left and Hector Bellerin on the right. Granit Xhaka partnered Matteo Guendouzi in central midfield, with Bukayo Saka and Joe Willock in wide roles. Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Eddie Nketiah were given the task of causing danger in front of the defending champions’ goal.

It’s going to be a fascinating night of action this evening as the Premier League returns for the first time in over three months. Prior to the game, in his pre-match press conference, manager Mikel Arteta had the following to say.

On his emotions going into the first game:
First of all I hope everyone is there, I can’t see anybody! But I hope you guys are all well, I miss you a lot. It’s been a long process, we’ve been through very different stages but now we are really excited and back to doing what we want to do. Hopefully we can do it in the right way and we can sustain it, so now it is really important that everyone does what is required.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages – we have finally arrived.

After three long months, the Premier League is set to return to our screens on Wednesday night with the first major feature game being Arsenal’s trip to take on reigning champions Manchester City. It kind of goes without saying that City are going to lose their crown to Liverpool in the next few weeks, barring an absolute miracle, and all Pep Guardiola can really do is push forward and ensure his team gives the best possible account of themselves between now and the end of the season.

The next game? 0

Those who wanted to avoid the prospect of getting back to playing the beautiful game need to open their eyes and realise that Project Restart is hell-bent on happening – regardless of whether or not we feel weird about it. The best estimate is that we’re going to have football back in our lives in England around the midway point of June, and if it’s any later than that, then perhaps we need to start asking a few more questions.
