You see, Arsenal has struggled out of the gate this season, as they are 2-0-2 in their first four EPL matches this year. This means that, unless their fortunes start to turn around, Arsenal will need to win the Europa Cup to qualify for Champions League next year.

Arsenal has been completely uneven so far this season. They barely squeaked out a win in their season opener at home against Leicester City, while they were blown out 4-0 by Liverpool on August 27th. Arsenal will be heading into this contest with a tiny bit of momentum, as they managed to defeat Bournemouth 3-0 at home on September 9th.

Arsenal, 2/5
