Predicting Every Game for Arsenal’s Premier League Run-In

Arsenal have endured another frustrating Premier League season, with any signs of sustained success quickly evaporating the moment that they appeared. While most fans now believe the Europa League is a priority and even some former players stating that the Gunners must win the competition, there is still a lot to be gained by performing well in the Premier League.

Arsenal actually have quite a friendly looking run-in over the final 11 games. They look unlikely to overhaul the current eight-point gap to Chelsea – they are priced at 16/1 to do so – but there is always merit in finishing the season strongly.

Below is a match prediction for each game in the run in, with a final prediction on Arsenal’s points tally (currently at 45).

March 1st vs Man City (H)

Arsenal get the luxury of playing Man City twice in a few days, with this one coming just a few days after the EFL Cup Final (this is being written just before the Final kicks off). A draw would be a reasonable outcome at the Emirates, considering the contrasting fortunes of each side this season. Not a bad bet at 16/5 either.

March 4th vs Brighton (A)

Just three days after the City game, Arsenal will be in action again against Brighton. While the Seagulls are tough to play at home, you really would expect Arsenal to get he job done. An away win at odds of 8/11 looks a banker.

March 11th vs Watford (H)

This game will be Arsenal’s fourth in 10 days (Europa League Last 16 tie will be played on 8th March), so it should stretch the resources of Arsène Wenger’s squad. Still, we must be fancied to get the job done.

April 1st vs Stoke (H)

Getting put out of the FA Cup early means that Arsenal will have a couple of weeks break from domestic football towards the end of March. Home win here to put Stoke into more relagation trouble.

April 7th vs Southampton (H)

It’s a pity the gap to the Top 4 is so wide, because Arsenal have would have had been able to gain some ground with a decent run of fixtures in April. Another 3 points at home.

April 14th vs Newcastle (A)

While Arsenal will be favourites here, Newcastle could be scrapping for their lives at this point. Benitez will go for a draw – and probably get it. Low-scoring draw.

April 21st vs West Ham (H)

Arsenal could not breakdown West Ham in the reverse fixture this season. Still, it should be a different proposition at the Emirates. Home win.

April 28th vs Man United (A)

While it is never nice to predict an Arsenal defeat, United are actually quite convincing at Old Trafford. United win, but Arsenal hopefully make a game of it.

Saturday 5th vs Burnley (H)

It is always difficult against Sean Dyche’s men, but Arsenal have the guile to open them up at the Emirates. A home win to finish the season at HQ.

Sunday 13th May (A)

Huddersfield have surprised many by keeping their heads above water this season. They may come to this fixture needing a point to stay up. Draw.

Arsenal final points tally prediction: 66 points and 6th place in the table
