EPL: 3 Upcoming Fixtures After The Break That Could Ruin Arsenal’s Chances Of Winning The League

The international break has begun, and EPL play has been halted. Meanwhile, prior to the break, Arsenal increased their lead at the top to eight points with a 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

The league appears to be coming to an end, with only 10 games remaining, and Arsenal will be hoping to avoid dropping points when league action resumes.

Arteta and his men, with the exception of those who would be participating in the International break, would have until next month to rest and regain their energy.

In this regard, we would look at their fixtures in April after they return. The photo below show all of their league games in the month of April.

Arsenal Fixtures For The Month Of April

As you can see, Arsenal will play six games in April, three of which will be against Premier League heavyweights Liverpool, Manchester City, and Chelsea.

Meanwhile, the other three games are against relegation-threatened teams such as Leeds, West Ham, and Southampton, against whom I expect them to win all nine possible points.

– Why the games against Liverpool, Manchester City & Chelsea could ruin Arsenal’s title hunt;

Liverpool VS Arsenal (9th of April)

Following the game against Leeds, Arsenal will travel to Anfield to face Liverpool. We all know Liverpool’s record against big teams when they play at home.

Liverpool will be looking to pick up important points now that they only have a top-four spot as their main goal. Seeing the stats, Arsenal are likely to lose points in this game.

looking at recent results between both teams, you can obviously tell that Liverpool are favorites going into this game.

Manchester City VS Arsenal (26th of April)

Manchester City’s recent record against Arsenal demonstrates why they are the favorite to win this game. The fact that this game will be played at the Etihad gives Manchester City a better chance of winning.

Arsenal VS Chelsea (29th of April)

This meeting comes after Arsenal’s match against Manchester City. Chelsea are obviously a tough opponent who could derail Arsenal’s chances of remaining league leaders.

Yes, they have been in poor form recently, but their recent pursuit of a top four spit appears to have gained steam. They will almost certainly aim to win all three points against Arsenal in order to boost their chances of finishing in the top four.
