Arsenal’s five hardest Premier League matches left as Man City battle continues

Arsenal is currently maintaining their position as the top team in the Premier League after playing 26 games. 

They are currently five points ahead of Manchester City, who are the reigning champions, but there is still a lot of football to be played.

In their recent match against Bournemouth, Arsenal demonstrated their fighting spirit and ability to win, coming from behind to secure their 20th league win of the season with a goal by Reiss Nelson in added time.


Although Arsenal will be focusing on the Europa League this week, their priority remains on the Premier League.

 It has been 19 years since Arsenal won the league, but with Mikel Arteta as their coach, it seems like they have found the right formula to replicate the achievements of former coach Arsene Wenger.

In previous years, Manchester City and Liverpool have been rivals for the Premier League title, with Man City winning the championship twice. However, this season, Pep Guardiola’s team is now chasing Arsenal and has not shown any signs of giving up the fight.

Each weekend presents unique challenges for all teams involved. In the next round of Premier League games, Manchester City will play first on Saturday, while Arsenal will play Fulham the following day. With the season running until May 28, it’s likely that there will be many unexpected turns and surprises along the way.

arsenalbrief.football has identified the top five most challenging fixtures that Arsenal will face in their remaining 12 games.

5. Brighton (H) – May 13

Brighton has been one of the surprise teams of the Premier League this season. Despite losing their coach Graham Potter in September, Roberto De Zerbi has led the team to be in contention for European football, a first in the club’s history.

Brighton has already beaten Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Arsenal this season, and their style of play has been attractive to watch. They are also still in the FA Cup.

Although Arsenal defeated Brighton with relative ease in their previous encounter on New Year’s Eve with a 4-2 victory, Brighton has won nine games and lost only once since then. Hosting Brighton at the Emirates Stadium in May will be a challenging task for Arsenal.

4. Newcastle (A) – May 6

The last time Arsenal played Newcastle at St James’ Park, it was a disappointing result for the Gunners. A Ben White own goal and a strike from Bruno Guimaraes all but ended Arsenal’s hopes of finishing in the top four.

This season, both clubs have improved significantly. Newcastle is in the race for a top four spot and recently came close to winning their first major trophy in 68 years. When Arsenal plays at St James’ Park in May, the game could have a lot riding on it for both teams.

Although Newcastle has struggled since the first half of the season and is currently without a league win since February 15, the atmosphere at St James’ Park can play a significant role in the game’s outcome. Arsenal will have to deal with the pressure and overcome the home team’s advantage.

3. Chelsea (H) – April 29

Last week, Chelsea’s upcoming visit to the Emirates Stadium may have been seen as one of the easier fixtures on Arsenal’s schedule. Since replacing Thomas Tuchel in September, Graham Potter has struggled to implement his ideas on the Blues squad, and they are currently in mid-table.

However, two wins in four days have injected much-needed confidence into the Chelsea squad. Their 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday secured their place in the Champions League quarter-finals, and the players and staff celebrated with huge relief. Chelsea seems to be on an upward trajectory again.

While Arsenal may not be worried about their London rivals based on their earlier season meeting, Chelsea has since strengthened their attacking ranks with a record-breaking transfer. Form can be unpredictable, and Chelsea will not want to help Arsenal’s push for the Premier League title.

2. Liverpool (A) – April 9

Similar to Chelsea, Liverpool seem to be experiencing a major turnaround in form. Previously, Jurgen Klopp’s side sat in the middle of the Premier League table after disappointing results to Brentford, Brighton and Wolves.

Ever since Julen Lopetegui’s side put three past the Reds at the start of February, the Merseyside outfit have won four of their previous six games in all competitions – including a historic 7-0 thrashing of rivals Manchester United.

Liverpool are now in the race for a top four finish Arsenal visit to Anfield is set to be a mouth-watering one. The fixture is scheduled to take place on the same day of Man City’s trip to Southampton so Sunday, April 9 has potential to be a crucial date in the season.

1. Manchester City (A) – April 26

The upcoming match between Arsenal and Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium is considered to be a crucial fixture that could determine the outcome of the Gunners’ title race. A win would be a significant step forward for Arsenal towards making history, while a loss would give Manchester City an advantage.

Manchester City has already defeated Arsenal twice this season and has the experience of winning in high-pressure situations. However, the prospect of the opportunity for Arsenal to come out on top in this game is thrilling.

Even though there are still 15 points to play for after this match, it is reasonable to predict that the team that emerges victorious in this contest could be the one celebrating a league title at the end of May.
