Arsenal will start this year’s Premier League season with a gentle match against Nottingham Forest at the Emirates home.
After facing Nottingham Forest on August 12, Arsenal will have 2 consecutive London derbies against Crystal Palace and Fulham. Arsenal’s first big battle with a Big Six opponent was the clash with Man United in early September.
The first North London derby also takes place in September, on the 23rd. The second leg at Spurs’ ground takes place on April 27. This is a match in round 35, so it will likely mean a lot to both teams.
The first clash between Arsenal and the team that won the treble last season, Man City, took place on October 7 at the Emirates. The return leg at Etihad takes place on March 30. Thus, Arsenal will have 3 great battles in the first 8 rounds.
Before marching to Etihad Stadium at the end of March, Arsenal will have 2 consecutive London derbies with Brentford and Chelsea. Other difficult matches against Brighton and Aston Villa will follow after the match against Man City. Thus, this can be considered the most difficult schedule period for Arsenal this season.
Arsenal will close the season by welcoming Everton at home, just a week after visiting Man United in the final away game of the season.
Arsenal’s late December period was also relatively favorable. After the great battle with Liverpool on December 23, Arsenal only met light opponents, West Ham and Fulham. They will start the new year 2024 with a match against Crystal Palace, before being rested until January 30.
