The Premier League have released the official list of fixtures for the 2021/22 season, and predictably, it’s a difficult one for Arsenal.

After a dismal campaign in the league where we finished eighth last season, the Gunners simply have to bounce back. There are no excuses for Mikel Arteta this time around, even though the fixture list hasn’t been too kind on us.

Even though this is the official fixture list for the upcoming season, it is important to note that there will be several changes made by the TV companies to accommodate our games on their broadcast schedule.

The Insider’s Reaction:

As usual, Arsenal have been handed a terrible fixture list. We play the defending Premier League and Champions League winners in the first three games of the season, followed by the North London derby on matchday six.

Our awful history of results in November and February could continue again as we play Liverpool and Manchester United away in the former, and Chelsea away and Jurgen Klopp’s men at home in the second month of next year.

Our end to the season is a decent one at least. We face West Ham, Leeds, Newcastle and finally Everton to finish the campaign, and those are all winnable games if we show up. Let’s just hope we can start well.

Come On You Gunners!
