Everton 1-6 Arsenal

With pundits’ predictions based on summer activity, Arsenal were definitely the outsiders of the top four going into the 2009/10 campaign. So only a big message on the opening day would do. But unlike Chelsea and United, the Gunners were denied a comfortable home fixture to begin their year with. Indeed, they had to bear with an unwanted trip to Goodison Park.

Standard Liege 2-3 Arsenal

Arsenal began their 2009/10 Champions League season in uncomfortable fashion. Facing a tricky trip to Belgium as kick-off to their group stage campaign, the Gunners were without first and second choice goalkeepers Almunia and Fabianski. Therefore, young Mannone had to make his debut in a real test of Arsenal’s resolve.

Fulham 0-1 Arsenal

Having lost this fixture the season before, the grit and guts of Wenger’s men would surely be put to test at Craven Cottage. But when was the last time a goalkeeper won a match for Arsenal on a ground where United and Liverpool were downed?

Arsenal 6-2 Blackburn

Wenger’s 13th anniversary had to be marked by a triumph with Thierry Henry watching but Sam Allardyce’s men were in as ‘party poopers’ while Arsenal looked to capitalize on United’s 2-2 draw with Sunderland the day before – which had seen Ferguson’s men go behind twice at Old Trafford. So how would Arsenal fare if handed a similar trial against Rovers?

Liverpool 1-2 Arsenal

Two weeks prior to this encounter, Arsenal had been battered by Chelsea. So heading to Anfield, Wenger’s boys were certainly not flying high. And talking of high, Van Persie and Bendtner’s absence meant Arsenal were not standing too high upfront in Andrey Arshavin. So with a lack of height and confidence going into this big clash, how would Arsenal match up with a Liverpool side rejuvenated by the return of Gerard, Aquilani and Torres?
