Arsenal’s first game of the 2011/12 Barclays Premier League season is away at Newcastle United on August 13. August looks set to be a hectic month with Liverpool visiting the Emirates on August 20, then the second leg of Arsenal’s Champions League play-off in midweek followed by a trip to Old Trafford to face title holders Manchester United on August 27.
The Gunners must also visit Tottenham and Chelsea before the end of October. Other games worthy of mention is Man Uniteds visit to north London on Jan 21, and the second north London derby of the season takes place at the Emirates on February 25, five weeks after. Arsenal host Chelsea on April 21 before finishing the campaign (nicely) against Stoke City, Norwich City and West Bromwich Albion. Fingers crossed that we can take advantage of an ‘easy’ run in towards the end of the season this time
