Champions League draw: Arsenal now face back-to-back matches against Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich
In addition to potential FA Cup fifth round tie, the matches in February could make or break Arsenal's season
Tuesday 17 December 2013
Should Arsenal still be in the hunt for trophies on three fronts by the start of the year, a run of four matches in 11 days starting from 8 February will provide the real acid test for Arsene Wenger's side.
Those crucial fixtures include a trip to Anfield, Manchester United and Bayern Munich at home plus a potential FA Cup fifth round tie.
8 Feb Liverpool (away, Premier League)
12 Feb Manchester United (home, Premier League)
15 Feb FA Cup fifth round
19 Feb Bayern Munich (home, Champions League)
One small bonus for Wenger, however, Arsenal have lost 12 Premier League matches in February, they have only lost fewer in October (10).
