Arsenal open up at Anfield

Published Add your comment

Arsenal will open their 2010/11 Premier League campaign with the pick of the opening day fixtures – a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool.

Arsene Wenger’s side will be looking to win such games if they are to make a sustained challenge for the title, although their next four fixtures look fairly routine.

Blackpool (H), Blackburn (A), Bolton (H) and Sunderland (A) isn’t the worst schedule, and the Gunners will look to start the season firing on all cylinders – with or without captain Cesc Fabregas.

Key fixture dates for the diary show a trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on October 2nd, while the first north London derby against Spurs is scheduled for November 20th.

A boxing day return of Chelsea has the potential to be a Christmas cracker, while a trip to White Hart Lane on the 26th February is one of the more important fixtures for the diary.

April could prove to be a pivotal month in the title race, with Liverpool visiting the Emirates on the 16th and Manchester United doing the same a fortnight later on the 30th.

To close the season, a trip to Fulham on May 22nd could see delight or despair for the club from north London.

Arsenal Football Club - opening five fixtures:

14/08/2010 - Liverpool v Arsenal

21/08/2010 – Arsenal v Blackpool

28/08/2010 – Blackburn v Arsenal

11/09/2010 – Arsenal v Bolton

18/09/2010 – Sunderland v Arsenal
