Arsenal are the in-form side in the Premier League as we head into another international break.

The Gunners are currently on a 10-match unbeaten run in all competitions, with Mikel Arteta seeing his team win their last three games in the top-flight, including a 1-0 victory over Watford at the weekend.

The run of form Arsenal have been on will be a fantastic sight for supporters, who saw their side fall to three straight defeats when the season started, with the Gunners losing those games by an aggregate scoreline of 9-0.

Arsenal have now climbed to fifth in the table since being bottom of the pile, ahead of Manchester United, Tottenham and just two points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

So, who’s up next for Arsenal once the international break concludes? football.london takes a look at the next six Premier League fixtures for the Gunners and compares them to rivals Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham.

Liverpool at Anfield

Liverpool saw their 25-match unbeaten run come to an end over the weekend as Jurgen Klopp’s men were defeated 3-2 at West Ham United.

The Reds now sit fourth in the Premier League table, but still only four points below leaders Chelsea, after failing to win in their last two matches in the top-flight.

Arsenal will be hoping to take advantage of Liverpool’s recent form in the first match after the international break.

The Gunners’ recent record at Anfield, though, is poor and Arteta will be desperate to end that when the two teams go head-to-head on Saturday, November 20.

Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium

Newcastle United are the visitors to the Emirates Stadium a week after the trip to Anfield, with the Magpies now under the management of Eddie Howe.

Howe was confirmed as the new boss of the Tyneside-based club earlier in the week and a trip to north London to face Arsenal will be his second test as he returns to the Premier League.

The Gunners have a superb recent record versus Newcastle, with the latter’s last victory against the former coming in November 2010 thanks to an Andy Carroll goal at the Emirates Stadium.

Man United at Old Trafford

Arsenal travel to Manchester United on December 2 as Arteta looks to pile even more pressure on under-fire manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Gunners recently leapfrogged United in the Premier League table, with the Manchester-based outfit losing to both Liverpool (0-5) and Manchester City (0-2) in their last three matches.

This has seen Solskjaer come under immense pressure in his role, and some reports are claiming that he could be out of his job by the time Arsenal come to town at the start of next month.

Arsenal won this fixture last season, with Arteta’s side winning 1-0 thanks to a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty.

Everton at Goodison Park

Just four days after their trip to Manchester, Arsenal travel to Merseyside to face Everton at Goodison Park.

After a really promising start to life as Toffees boss for Rafael Benitez, the Spaniard is without a victory in five matches.

Everton take on Manchester City away, Brentford away and Liverpool at home before Arsenal visit, in three really tricky fixtures, with the Gunners hoping to meet the Toffees out of form next month.

Southampton at the Emirates

After successive away days for Arsenal, it is then back-to-back home clashes, with Southampton visiting the Emirates Stadium on December 11.

The Saints have had a mixed start to the Premier League campaign and face a tough run of fixtures before they meet the Gunners midway through next month.

Southampton face Norwich City in the first match back after the international break, where they will be expected to secure three points, before matches against Liverpool, Leicester City and Brighton prior to their clash with Arsenal.

The Gunners picked up four points in their two games against the Saints last season, with the match at the Emirates finishing in a 1-1 draw.

West Ham United at the Emirates

West Ham United come to the Emirates on December 15, with the Hammers being one of the most in-form sides in the Premier League at the moment.

Of course, by the time the game comes around, that could all be changed, but the Irons produced a sensational performance to beat Liverpool on Sunday afternoon at the London Stadium.

David Moyes has done a superb job in east London and he will be fancying his team’s chances against Arsenal midway through next month.

In this fixture last season, Arteta led his side to a 2-1 victory at the Emirates before the teams played out a six-goal thriller at the London Stadium, with the points shared on that day.
