Arsenal were unable to continue their 100% record to start the Premier League season as they drew 2-2 against Fulham on Saturday afternoon. The Gunners fell behind within a minute after Aaron Ramsdale was caught out by Andreas Pereira's long-range strike following a misplaced Bukayo Saka back pass.
Arsenal went ahead through a Saka penalty and Eddie Nketiah strike – but Joao Palhinha's late goal ensured the visitors took a point from their trip to the Emirates Stadium. Manchester City remain the only side with a 100% record this term as they prepare to face Sheffield United on Sunday afternoon.
With that being said, has taken a look at the upcoming Premier League fixtures for Arsenal compared to their closest rivals.
Arsenal next five fixtures:
Manchester United (H) – Sunday, September 3
The first arguable real test of Arsenal's season comes with the visit of Manchester United. Last season the Gunners won a five-goal thriller at home against Erik ten Hag's side thanks to a late Eddie Nketiah goal. Man United haven't looked at their best thus far but a victory over the Gunners in pre-season means they should not be underestimated.
Everton (A) – Saturday, September 16
Arsenal have bad memories of Goodison Park with a narrow 1-0 defeat in Sean Dyche's first game last campaign providing the first major stumbling block in their title pursuit. The Toffees are yet to score this season but will want to right their poor start with a marquee victory.
Tottenham (H) – Sunday, September 24
The first North London Derby of the season arrives towards the end of September. Arsenal have not lost against their bitter rivals on their own patch in the Premier League in over a decade, but new manager Ange Postecoglou is expected to bring an entirely different team to Emirates Stadium.
Bournemouth (A) – Saturday, September 30
Arsenal close out the month of September by facing Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. The Cherries are another team reshaping their identity after parting ways with Gary O'Neill for Andoni Iraola which will certainly mean a tough encounter is on the horizon.
Manchester City (H) – Sunday, October 8
A huge clash to start October awaits for the Gunners. The two title rivals from last season face each other for the first time since the FA Community Shield.
Arsenal got the better of City at Wembley ahead of the 2023/24 campaign and Mikel Arteta will hope his side can beat the reigning champions for a second time in the space of a few months.
