Arsenal's Next Matches Which May See Them Drop Points In The EPL (READ MORE)

Arsenal maintained their excellent form after returning from the international break by defeating North London rivals Tottenham 3-1. On Saturday, goals by Thomas Partey, Gabriel Jesus, and Granit Xhaka secured all three points and bragging rights.

It propels Arsenal to the top of the Premier League, four points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur and one point in front of second-place Manchester City. It keeps Mikel Arteta's team in contention for the championship, although the manager remained unsure as to how likely it was that his team would be in contention.

Arsenal's Next Matches and Their Potential Outcomes

Arsenal vs. Liverpool

Liverpool has gotten off to a sluggish start, ranking ninth with 10 points from their first seven games. The most recent of these was a 3-3 draw against Brighton, with Leandro Trossard's hat-trick preventing a victory after a 2-0 deficit was overcome.

Despite their problems, Jurgen Klopp has sufficient talent at his disposal, and his players are capable of defeating anyone on any given day. It will be another test of Arsenal's ability to contend for the league title this year.

Possible Outcome: Lose

Leeds vs Arsenal

In order to avoid relegation, Jesse Marsch's team is rebuilding after losing key players over the offseason. They are thirteenth, two points above the relegation zone, with two matches remaining.

Sunday's draw between Arsenal and Aston Villa with ten men and Leeds' pressure could be problematic for the Gunners.

Possible outcome: win

Arsenal versus Southampton:

Southampton has only won one of their last five games, most recently falling to Everton. One point separates the Saints and Wolves, who have the fifth-worst defense in the league.

In August, the Saints defeated Chelsea by a score of 2-1.

Possible Outcome: Win

Arsenal vs. Chelsea

In their final game before the midseason break, Arsenal plays Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Blues' struggles on and off the field prompted the new ownership to hire Graham Potter as head coach.

Conor Gallagher scored the game-winning goal in the final seconds of his Premier League debut for Chelsea against Crystal Palace.

The Possibility of a Draw

Most football fans are waiting for the match between Arsenal the gunners and Manchester City, the cityzens.
