With seven Premier League games remaining until the turn of the year and the season’s halfway stage, we take a look at how we think Arsenal will fare up until the start of 2016.

West Brom (A), Nov 21

Under Tony Pulis, the Baggies are expected to be a team that is notoriously difficult to break down, however they have looked anything but solid at points this season.

They have conceded three times against Man City, Chelsea, Leicester and Everton at the Hawthorns this term, and we think the Gunners will take the points as well.

Shoot Says: Win

Norwich (A), Nov 29

It has been a tough start to the season for the Canaries, and we think that Arsene Wenger’s side will turn over the hosts at Carrow Road.

Arsenal have proved that they are set up perfectly to play on the road on many occasions already this term, and the trip to Norfolk will be no exception.

Sunderland (H), Dec 5

The Gunners certainly have a favourable run of games coming up, and it doesn’t stop when they host lowly Sunderland at the Emirates.

Sam Allardyce’s side will likely set up to get a point in North London, but we fancy Arsene Wenger’s side to break them down and take all three points.

Shoot Says: Win

Aston Villa (A), Dec 13

Earlier in the season, this would have been a match that Arsenal would have expected to get a win from, but things may change at Villa if their draw against Manchester City is anything to go by.

The match will also take on added incentive for the hosts’ manager Remi Garde, who played for the Gunners under Arsene Wenger, and we think the spoils will be shared.

Shoot says: Draw

Man City (H), Dec 21

Arguably, Arsenal’s biggest match of the season so far comes just before Christmas when they host City.

The two already look to be the front runners for the Premier League title this term, and Arsene Wenger will be keen for his side to get the win, but we think it will end with a point apiece.

Southampton (A), Dec 26

A trip to face Southampton is never easy, and Arsenal have struggled at St Mary’s since the Saints returned to the Premier League – drawing twice and losing once.

Despite a tough start to the campaign, Ronald Koeman’s team have looked more solid in recent weeks and we again think that it will be a draw on the south coast.

Shoot Says: Draw

Bournemouth (H), Dec 28

Talking of the south coast, the Gunners then host Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth side at the Emirates, and we think they will get back to winning ways.

The Cherries have endured a spate of unfortunate long-term injuries, and Arsenal will take full advantage of the depleted visitors in their last match of 2015.

Shoot Says: Win

Points: 41
League position: 2nd
