Premier League fixtures released

Looks like we’ll be losing to Leicester at home to start the season.

If you’ve already got a case of Premier League withdrawal, have no fear. The fixtures for the 2017/18 season have already been released.

Arsenal will be opening the season hosting Leicester City on August 12th, which, wow that’s soon. So if we’re gonna buy Riyad Mahrez, hopefully we do so as quickly as possible.

Arsenal’s first match against a top six team comes at the end of August at Liverpool, and then we head to Chelsea just a few weeks later.

The first North London Derby will be at Ashburton Grove on November 18th. The second one of the league season will be in the middle of February, smack dab in the middle of matches against Everton and Manchester City. Yikes, that month is going to be rough.

December could also be another rough month, as we face Manchester United to start the month, plus Liverpool on the 23rd. We also face Chelsea on New Year’s Day, so that should really help your recovery from hangover.

Anyways, you can find the whole slate of fixtures at Arsenal’s official website. In the meantime, start preparing your best Wenger out takes now, the season will be here before you know it.
