Predicting Arsenal’s next four games

Arsenal Emirates

We take a close look at Arsenal’s Premier League matches against Liverpool, Burnley and Chelsea, and the FA Cup semi-final tie against Reading.

Arsenal v Liverpool

Arsenal are in a good run of form at the moment, but it will be interesting to see how they return to Premier League action after the international break.

The Gunners will be favourites to win the encounter at the Emirates Stadium in North London, but Liverpool will be determined to bounce back from the 2-1 home defeat to Manchester United.

A fascinating game is in store on Saturday, and one suspects that the team which score the first goal will have a big say in deciding the outcome.

Prediction: 2-2

Burnley v Arsenal

Burnley are one of the top candidates to suffer relegation from the Premier League at the end of the season, and Arsenal will be huge favourites to win this game.

The Gunners will not find it easy to pick up all three points at Turf Moor, but manager Arsene Wenger has enough top-quality players in his squad to overcome any challenge posed by Burnley.

Prediction: 0-3

Reading v Arsenal (FA Cup semi-final)

Many will back Arsenal to get the better of Championship outfit Reading, but this FA Cup semi-final tie could go either way.

The Royals will be relishing the chance to play at London’s Wembley Stadium, and the players will be pumped up for the game.

Arsenal should still be able to win this encounter, but it will be tougher than many would suspect.

Prediction: 0-1

Arsenal v Chelsea

Arsenal have stepped up against the best teams in the Premier League this season, and they will need to do so against Chelsea.

The Gunners cannot afford to slip up in the race for a top-four finish, and they should be looking to take advantage of the Blues’ recent dip in performance.

However, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho knows how to win matches like this, and one can be certain that he will make sure that his team do not lose.

Prediction: 2-2
