November could be a pivotal month for Arsenal as they bid to put a few sticky performances firmly behind them.
The Gunners have suffered a hangover from their recent defeat at Sheffield United, struggling to overcome Vitoria de Setubal in the Europa League before blowing a two-goal lead against Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
Although they look well-placed to progress in Europe, Unai Emery’s side are already 12 points adrift of Liverpool in the title race. Read on as we preview Arsenal’s November fixtures.

Arsenal took just a point off Wolves last season, but they are 7/10 favourites to record a victory on Saturday.
The are likely to be plenty of Ladbrokes new customers willing to back Arsenal at what look to be generous odds, particularly when you consider their record against Wolves.

Leicester City (A) – November 9

Brendan Rodgers’ side are sitting comfortably in the top four and were in devastating form as they smashed nine goals past Southampton in their most recent outing.

Southampton (H) – November 23

Arsenal v Eintracht Frankfurt – November 28
Goals from Joe Willock, Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang secured an impressive 3-0 win for Arsenal in the reverse fixture.
