New boss Unai Emery was given the hardest possible task to start his Emirates tenure, and Arsenal fans are fearing for their season already
The 2018/19 Premier League fixtures were released today and for new Arsenal boss Unai Emery, it could not be a harder start to life with the Gunners.
Emery’s men were handed a home clash against reigning champions Manchester City, who lost just twice last season on their way to a record 100 points.
And it does not get any easier after that, with the fixture list pitting them against fierce rivals Chelsea in the second weekend of the season.
It could be a sorry festive season for them, too, with a north London derby against Spurs and trips to both Old Trafford and Anfield in December.
Arsenal fans have been reacting to the news with fear and trepidation since the fixtures were announced at 9am on Thursday morning.
