We have been handed a nightmare start to next season as we face the Champions Man City on the first day of the campaign at home in August. It’s going to be the most anticipated season for a while for Arsenal fans who’ll be excited by the new Manager, and for plenty of online casino action check out this Offer from Bitstarz who also have plenty of jackpot slots online too.
City were the first club to spend half a billion pounds on players and won the league at a canter, notching up 100 points to win it. Following that stern opening day test, we then go away to Stamford Bridge to face the other club who spend their way to success; Chelsea.
Spurs are to visit Newcastle in the first game of the season, a very unhappy hunting ground for them, you might remember Alan Sugar tweeting that it was 1-1 between us and Newcastle, when it wasn’t and we went on to win 1-0, along with Spurs’ 5-1 defeat there to blow second place allowing us to sneak in as runners up to Leicester City.
Unai Emery will be looking to get off to a solid start against Man City, and hopefully if we can get something out of that game, it will mean we don’t find ourselves trying to make up ground as early as September like we usually do. There’s also no risk of complacency with such a tough start, we’re going to have to be ready to hit the ground running with zero time to dwell on things with two such big games to kick off this pivotal season. Arsene Wenger had a habit of reacting late in the transfer window during the summer meaning our squad never really had a decent pre-season, and we never felt ready for any new season.
December won’t be much fun either with games against Spurs, Man United and Liverpool around the Christmas period.
Anyway, despite the nightmare start and tricky December, our run-in looks much better with some very-much-winnable games as we look to win our first Premier League title since 2006 following Wenger’s departure, under the guidance of new Manager Unai Emery.

In between the nightmare start and the favourable run-in, we will play the rest of the teams twice, home and away in a random order as we hope to improve on the frankly disastrous season last time out. Meanwhile, you have to hope that Spurs get off to the worst start possible as payback for the Spurs players who will no doubt let England down in the coming weeks in the World Cup in Russia. BOOOOOOO!
