Let’s get way too worked up about a list of fixtures!

The Premier League released the full 2021-22 schedule today. The 38-match PL season forms the majority of Arsenal’s matches this season with the club out of European competition for the first time in 25 years. As usual, the Carabao Cup will run from early in the season through the end of February, but Arsenal will enter the competition a round earlier than we are used to because the Gunners are not in Europe. The FA Cup will run from early January through May.

The first North London Derby is relatively early this season, the Gunners host Spurs on September 25th. The away NLD is in mid-January. No portion of the schedule looks quite as intimidating knowing that the Gunners will have more time off in the midweek than usual, and they’ve avoided drawing a brutal Christmas period.

The less-congested schedule means Mikel Arteta has more time during the week to coach ‘em up and focus on getting the tactics right for the Premier League matches. But it also means that there will be even more pressure to get results in the Premier League, both to fight for a Champions League spot and because there aren’t “easier” Europa League matches to help turn around a bad run of form.

Reminder: the three promoted teams are Brentford, Norwich City, and Watford.
