Where to next for Arsenal and Arteta?

Posted by

It’s been a great season for Arsenal this year, people can say what they want, but if it wasn’t for the North London club, the Manchester team would have won the league months ago. That has to be remembered, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have all had their troubles this season.

Arsenal have a squad of good young talented professionals that are a team for the future, but sadly for them, they came on done against one hell of a team in Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City squad.

It’s a massive task and would take a miracle for Arsenal to win the league now, after the result on Wednesday night. The real damage was done in the previous games, where Arsenal drop nine out of a possible 12 points, while City went on a seven-game winning streak in the league and in the online slots..

The defending Premier League champions will be looking to pull ahead of Arsenal in the title race by the time City host West Ham and Leeds United on May 3 and 6, respectively, with a trip to Fulham before that.

Pep Guardiola’s side will then be involved in the Champions League semi-finals first-leg against Real Madrid on May 9, before returning to domestic league action against Everton.

You’d be a food in betting against Pep and his men, winning a historic treble and winning the Champions League for the first time in the clubs history.

Arsenal have some massive games left and it’s hugely important they if their not going to win the Premier League, that they get that all important second place in the league and guaranteed place in the Champions League for next season.

The Gunners have five games left of their season, including next week’s clash with Chelsea, which is a MASSIVE game for both clubs.

Arteta’s side will then face a trip to Newcastle before games against Brighton, Nottingham Forest and Wolves.

The full remaining fixture list for Arsenal are as followed:

Chelsea (H) – May 2 at 8pm

Newcastle United (A) – May 7 at 4.30pm

Brighton (H) – May 14 at 4.30pm

Nottingham Forest (A) – May 20 at 5.30pm

Wolves (H) – May 28 at 4.30pm

It’s important now that Arsenal don’t fall off the face of the cliff and try and win all their remaining fixtures, because you never know this title isn’t over and Manchester City might, just might still still up. It’s unlikely, but you never know. One thing is for sure Mikel Arteta and his Arsenal squad can look at this season as a major success, provided they finish it right.
