Arsenal fixtures over Christmas period compared to Man City and Liverpool as Arteta’s Men set eyes on winning both premier league and champions league title this season

Arsenal presently leads the Premier League table coming into December, but only by one point over reigning champions Manchester City. Liverpool, Aston Villa, and Tottenham are also in the mix, with the packed Christmas fixture schedule certain to cause mayhem in terms of sharpness and injury concerns.

So far this season, the Gunners boast the greatest defensive record in the Premier League, surrendering only ten goals in 13 games. With a 6-0 win over Lens on Wednesday night, Mikel Arteta’s side clinched their place in the Champions League last-16, meaning Arsenal could use a rotated squad in their final Group B match against PSV later this month.

With Arsenal expected to play eight games in December, Arteta will need to manage his team well throughout the holiday season. So, with that in mind, football.london has looked at Arsenal’s future fixtures and compared them to the rest of the championship contenders below.

Wolves (H) – Premier League – December 2
The Gunners begin December at home against Wolves, who are presently 14th in the league standings. Wolves have beaten the north Londoners at home and away in each of the last two Premier League campaigns, and they have won both.

They’ll be hoping to catch Arsenal off guard as well.

Aston Villa (A) – Premier League – December 9
