Arsenal Diary: What’s in store this week

There’s plenty up for grabs this week with two big Premier League games, cup knockout clashes for our academy, and a massive WSL fixture at Emirates Stadium.

Here’s what to look out for on Arsenal.com across the next seven days.

MONDAY

2.30pm – Mikel Arteta press conference

It all begins with Mikel Arteta’s pre-Luton Town press conference at London Colney. We will be providing live coverage as usual on Arsenal.com and there will be a full-round up of everything discussed published right after.

TUESDAY

7.30pm – Peterborough United v Arsenal U21s

After progressing from the group stage of the Bristol Street Motors Trophy (formerly the EFL Trophy), our Under-21s face a trip to The Western Homes Stadium to take on Peterborough United’s first team.

The Posh won 2-1 at home to Doncaster Rovers in the Emirates FA Cup on the weekend. We will provide a full post-match report of Tuesday’s game on Arsenal.com as well as reaction from Mehmet Ali and one of his young Gunners.

8.15pm – Luton Town v Arsenal

Kicking off 45 minutes later, our senior team will make their first trip to Kenilworth Road since 1991 to take on Luton Town in the Premier League.

After a positive weekend, we’ll be looking to extend our lead at the top of the division, while the Hatters will want to increase their distance to the relegation zone. A win would see us go five points clear at the top with Liverpool playing on Wednesday.

There will be the usual pre-match build-up right here on Arsenal.com and the official app with Breakdown Live an hour before kick-off, with all the usual post-match content published on both, including interviews and highlights as well as the full 90 minutes for you to enjoy if you missed the action.

FRIDAY

9am – Mikel Arteta press conference

The boss will be back in front of the cameras and members of the press to turn attention to Saturday’s trip to Aston Villa. We will be providing live coverage on Arsenal.com and there will be a full-round up of everything discussed published right after.

TBC – Jonas Eidevall press conference

Shortly after Mikel’s presser, Jonas Eidevall will be in the hot seat to look ahead to a huge Barclays Women’s Super League match at Emirates Stadium as we take on champions Chelsea on Sunday. We will again be covering the press conference and reporting all the key talking points.

SATURDAY

5.30pm – Arsenal U18s v Crewe Alexandra

It’s a big one on Saturday evening for our Under-18s, who begin their FA Youth Cup campaign against Crewe Alexandra at Meadow Park in the third round. Jack Wilshere’s youngsters were runners-up in the competition last season, losing the final to West Ham United after a brilliant cup run.

We will provide a full post-match report on Arsenal.com as well as reaction from Jack and one of his young Gunners.

5.30pm – Aston Villa v Arsenal

Kicking off at the same time, our first team will be back in Premier League action at Villa Park. Unai Emery’s side have been flying so far this season and are fourth in the division, four points behind us ahead of Wednesday’s game against Manchester City.

There will be the usual pre-match build-up right here on Arsenal.com and the official app with Breakdown Live an hour before kick-off, with all the usual post-match content published on both, including interviews and highlights as well as the full 90 minutes for you to enjoy if you missed the action.

SUNDAY

12.30pm – Arsenal Women v Chelsea Women

It promises to be a super Sunday at Emirates Stadium this weekend, a huge crowd expected for the visit of last season’s WSL champions, Chelsea.

Emma Hayes’ side went into the November international break at the top of the table with 22 points from eight games, while we’re just three points behind in second.

Keep an eye on Arsenal.com for all the pre-match build-up, game coverage and post-match reaction.
