Arsenal’s Poor Form Might Mean they Have to Cancel Pre-Season Tour to Singapore

Arsenal’s Poor Form Might Mean they Have to Cancel Pre-Season Tour to Singapore

Arsenal‘s wretched run in the Premier League could force the north London club to cancel their planned pre-season tour in Singapore this summer.

At the moment, Arsene Wenger’s men are due to be in the far east to take on the likes of PSG and Atletico Madrid at the end of July as preparation for the 2018/19 season beginning a few weeks later.

The tour is probably worth several million pounds to the Gunners, and would cause a lot of disruption if it were to be cancelled, but if their domestic form dips any more, they might be forced to.

Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Newcastle means Arsenal are the only club in Europe’s top-four leagues not to have claimed a single point away from home in 2018, and leaves them in sixth position, just two points ahead of Burnley.

If Burnley manage to overhaul Arsenal in the final five matches – and if Arsenal fail to win the Europa League – Wenger and his players will be forced to play their European qualifiers from as early as July 28.

With their first match in Singapore scheduled to be on July 26, there obviously won’t be room for both.

Previously a regular Champions League club, Arsenal’s supporters have never needed to worry about things like this, but they might need to get used to playing those Europa qualifiers in the middle of summer.

Will Burnley leapfrog Arsenal?
