Finally, the 2022–23 PL fixtures are out.
Looking at the Gunners’ fixtures, they are set to have an easy start to the season. In fact, looking at the first 7 match days, the thought that comes to mind is: “7 easy wins; 21 points on the board already.”
Anyway, just in case you haven’t any clue what Arsenal’s first seven games of the season are, here they are:
Arsenal kick off their quest to win the league with a game against Nottingham Forest. A game. I don’t see why they don’t win.
After Forest, they visit Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on August 19th and hopefully collect all three points on offer.
Fulham then visits the Emirates on August 26th. A game in which Arteta may make it two wins out of two at home.
By the time Manchester United visit the Emirates on September 2nd, Arsenal should have all the momentum to dispatch them and give them a taste of defeat
Following the win over Ten Hag’s United, a trip to Goodison Park to play Everton on September 16th will be lined up. Sean Dyche’s Everton is a tough nut to crack, but Arteta should find a way to crush them.
After Everton, Everton and Arsenal will be back in London to do what they know best: win the London derby on September 23rd at the Emirates.
After the win over Spurs, Arsenal have a date with Bournemouth. On September 30th, the Gunners travel to Vitality Stadium to add their seventh win of the season.
After these seven wins, Arsenal will be up for their biggest test of the season when they play Manchester City next.
So, if Arsenal can complete the key deals we hope they will, they’ll be strong enough to beat any team. As bright as they started last season, we need the same next term.
