Arsenal’s next six Premier League matches compared to Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham

Arsenal are the strong team in the Premier League when we go into another international break.

The Gunners are currently on an unbeaten run of 10 matches in all competitions, with Mikel Arteta watching his team win their last three matches in the top flight, including a 1-0 win over Watford at the weekend.

The form Arsenal have been in will be a fantastic sight for fans who saw their team fall to three defeats in a row as the season started, with the Gunners losing those matches with an overall score of 9-0.

Arsenal have now climbed to fifth place in the table since bottoming the table, ahead of Manchester United, Tottenham and just two points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

So who’s next for Arsenal when the international break is over? football.london takes a look at the next six Premier League matches for the Gunners and compares them to rivals Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham.

Liverpool at Anfield

Liverpool saw their 25-match unbeaten run end this weekend as Jurgen Klopp’s men were defeated 3-2 at West Ham United.

The Reds are now in fourth place in the Premier League table, but still only four points below leaders Chelsea, after not winning their last two matches in the top flight.

Arsenal will hope to take advantage of Liverpool’s latest form in the first game after the international break.

However, the Gunners’ latest record at Anfield is poor and Arteta will be desperate to finish it when the two teams face each other on Saturday 20 November.

Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium

Newcastle United are the visitors at the Emirates Stadium a week after the trip to Anfield, where the Magpies are now under the leadership of Eddie Howe.

Howe was confirmed as the new head of the Tyneside-based club earlier this week, and a trip to north London to face Arsenal will be his second test as he returns to the Premier League.

The Gunners have an excellent record recently against Newcastle, with the latter’s last win against the former coming in November 2010 thanks to an Andy Carroll goal at the Emirates Stadium.

Man United at Old Trafford

Arsenal travel to Manchester United on December 2, as Arteta appears to be putting even more pressure on under-shooting manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

The Gunners recently jumped United into the Premier League table, with the Manchester-based team losing to both Liverpool (0-5) and Manchester City (0-2) in their last three matches.

This has seen Solskjær come under enormous pressure in his role, and some reports claim that he may be out of his job when Arsenal come to town at the beginning of next month.

Arsenal won this match last season, with Arteta’s team winning 1-0 thanks to a penalty kick from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Everton at Goodison Park

Just four days after their trip to Manchester, Arsenal travel to Merseyside to meet Everton at Goodison Park.

After a really promising start to life as Toffees boss for Rafael Benitez, the Spaniard is without a win in five games.

Everton take on Manchester City away, Brentford away and Liverpool at home before Arsenal visit, in three really difficult matches, with the Gunners hoping to face Toffees out of shape next month.

Southampton at the Emirates

After consecutive away days for Arsenal, it is then back-to-back home games, where Southampton visit the Emirates Stadium on 11 December.

The Saints have had a mixed start to the Premier League campaign and are facing a tough game of play before meeting the Gunners midway through next month.

Southampton face Norwich City in the first match back after the international break, where they are expected to secure three points before the matches against Liverpool, Leicester City and Brighton prior to their showdown with Arsenal.

The Gunners picked up four points in their two games against the Saints last season, with the game at the Emirates ending in a 1-1 draw.

West Ham United at the Emirates

West Ham United come to the Emirates on December 15, where the Hammers are one of the most formal teams in the Premier League at the moment.

Of course, when the match comes around, it could all change, but the Irons delivered a sensational performance to beat Liverpool on Sunday afternoon at London Stadium.

David Moyes has done an excellent job in East London and he would like his team’s chances against Arsenal midway through next month.

In this match last season, Arteta led his team to a 2-1 win over the Emirates before the teams played a six-goal thriller at London Stadium, with the points split that day.
