‘Sacre Bleu!’: Wenger in for a test of strength

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will certainly need to prep his team well in the next couple of months, in order to ensure they get off to a good start next season. The Gunners kick-start their 2016-17 Premier League campaign with a potentially competitive fixture against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool. That will be followed by an away match against reigning champions Leicester City, who may well be a depleted side by that time, if the rumours flowing around in the transfer market are to be believed.

The north London giants end August with an away fixture against Watford, which will be followed by a seemingly tough September, with home matches against Southampton and Chelsea on the schedule for Wenger’s men.

An easy October may be followed by a thoroughly competitive November, with the side in for back to back fixtures against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

The Gunners will visit the Red Devils’ neighbours City just after their away fixture at Goodison Park against Everton.

While Wenger’s men may enjoy a comparatively easier January, the following months may not be the same, with a string of matches against the likes of Chelsea (4th February), Southampton (25th Feb), Liverpool (4th March), Leicester (11th March) and Manchester City (1st April) to follow, separated intermittently with fixtures against Hull and West Bromwich Albion.

The end of the season holds no respite either for Arsenal, with their last 4 fixtures being against local rivals Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Stoke City and Everton!
