Arsenal’s Manager Mikel Arteta Starts a Vital Chapter in His Career to Help Win the Premier League Title After 19 Years
Arsenal is leading the Premier League table after 26 games, remaining five points clear of Manchester City, the reigning champions.
However, there is still plenty of football to be played before the end of the season.
The Gunners demonstrated their fighting spirit in last weekend’s dramatic victory over Bournemouth, coming back from a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2 thanks to Reiss Nelson’s late goal.
While the Europa League will be the focus in the coming days, the priority remains the league as Arsenal aim to win their first title in 19 years.
Brighton (H) – May 13
Brighton will be a tough opponent for Arsenal. The two clubs will face each other on May 13.
The Seagulls have been one of the surprise packages of the season, with Roberto De Zerbi steadying the ship after Graham Potter’s departure in September.
Brighton has beaten Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester United and remains in contention for European football.
Newcastle (A) – May 6
Newcastle is another team Arsenal must face in May.
The Magpies have struggled since the first half of the season but find themselves in the race for a top-four finish.
Their recent form has not been good, but the atmosphere at St James’ Park can be a factor, and Arsenal will need to overcome the pressure once again.
Chelsea (H) – April 29
Chelsea’s recent victories have injected new life into the team, and Arsenal will need to be wary of their London rivals when they visit the Emirates Stadium in April.
Earlier this season, Arsenal defeated their London rivals. If they repeat their stunning performance from the first time, they will make a double over Chelsea.
Liverpool (A) – April 9
Liverpool is another team experiencing a turnaround in form, and their match against Arsenal at Anfield is set to be a mouth-watering one.
Arsenal doesn’t hold a good record at Anfield so this match could make or break Arsenal’s title race.
Manchester City (A) – April 26
April will be a tough month for the Gunners with trips to Anfield and Etihad.
If Arsenal wins, it will be a momentous step towards history, but if they lose, Guardiola’s men will have the upper hand.
Regardless of the outcome, there are still 15 more points to play for after this game, and whoever comes out on top will likely be the team celebrating at the end of the season.
