Although we know that the EFL cup is not very high on the Arsenal manager's list of priorities and he does the same thing with rotasting the squad every season, it was still a bit disappointing to see Arsene Wenger make 10 changes to the team for this quarter-final against Southampton. We certainly paid the [.
As expected by most Arsenal fans and watchers, the manager has rung the changes for the EFL cup match at home to Southampton because of our numerous injury problems and also to allow a few of the key players to get some well earned rest after a hectic fixture schedule. The visitors have also made [..
Arsene Wenger has already given us some advance warning about what sort of Arsenal team we are likely to see lined up against tonight's visitors to the Emirates stadium for the quarter-final of the EFL cup, as reported on the Arsenal website. So the Southampton manager will already know that it will be Carl Jenkinson [.
This idea of mine could well come back to bite me if Arsenal end up going out of the EFL cup tonight, but as well as having the advantage of the quarter-final with Southampton being played at the Emirates stadium, I feel that the much vaunted success of the south coast club's academy could actually [.
Arsenal fans can expect to see quite a few changes to the starting line-up of the Gunners tonight as we take on Southampton for a place in the semi-final of the EFL cup. I think we have to understand that Arsene Wenger has to make the Premier League a priority and with all the games [...]
I was quite surprised this week to see the chances of Arsenal winning the Premier League title this season dismissed by the Chelsea and Belgium star Eden Hazard, especially as we are currently sitting just three points behind the league leaders after a tough run of games and as we put his team to the [.
ARSENAL 3-1 AFC BOURNEMOUTH: FIVE THINGS WE LEARNED FROM THE INTERESTING MATCH. The Gunners were 3-1 visitors over the visiting Bournemouth side at the Emirates Stadium thanks to Alexis Sanchez second goal towards the end of the game to calm nerves as hostilities ensued in the encounter. It was a game that saw two of [.
Arsenal's new found depths in the squad means that the Gunners will hardly be playing a team of kids in tonight's match against Southampton, despite making a host of changes from the weekend win over Bournemouth. But one certainty to start is the third-choice keeper Emi Martinez who has performed heroically in the first two [.
Arsenal are preparing for tonight's League Cup game and, although we have great deep looking squad, there are still quite a lot of injury news to report. Wenger couldn't give us an update on Matthieu Debuchy's scan yet after he was taken off on Sunday after playing his first 16 minutes for a year, but [.
So Arsenal are aiming for their 20th game in a row unbeaten against Southampton at the Emirates tonight, and it is fully expected that there will be another slew of changes from the weekend's game against Bournemouth. The Saints are sitting comfortably in mid table so I expect them to play their very best team [.
Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has stated that Olivier Giroud is annoyed at his lack of first-team action. The Frenchman was injured at the start of the Premier League campaign, and manager Arsene Wenger opted to field a makeshift forward in Alexis Sanchez in the role, which has worked out extremely well.
While a lot of Arsenal fans, myself included, have been a bit concerned of late about the lack of chances that the Gunners have been creating, the fact that we still have not lost in the Premier League since the first game of the season and that we got our title challenge back on track [...]
We have just over a month until the winter transfer window opens, so we thought we'd take a look at the players which could find themselves leaving Arsenal. One exit could be determined on the injury/fitness situation surrounding three players, with Hector Bellerin, Carl Jenkinson and Mathieu Debuchy allvying for oneposition.
Eden Hazard has ruled Arsenal out of the race for the Premier League title, claiming their only challenge is to finish above Manchester City and Liverpool. The Blues beat London rivals Tottenham on Saturday evening to return to the top of the table after Liverpool had leapfrogged them earlier in the day, and one of [.
If you are one of the Arsenal fans who give credence to the theory that injury problems have quite a big impact on a club and it´s ability to win a trophy, especially a league title like the Premier League that is hard fought over a long time and a large number of games, then [...]
I know that a lot of Arsenal fans are sick of hearing about the remarkable record of Arsene Wenger getting the Gunners into the Champions League every season as we have never gone on to lift the European cup and in recent years have got no further than the first knockout stage and neither have [...]
Arsenal came up against AFC Bournemouth at the weekend, with the Gunners coming out on top in a 3-1 win at the Emirates. The score line may suggest a comfortable victory for the Gunners, but it was instead a very tense affair. The Gunners took the lead fairly early on, with a defensive error from [..
On a day that young prodigy Serge Gnabry has revealed exactly why it was so important that he moved on from Arsenal, it seems that another young player may have intentions of doing the same, in the not too distant future. Gnabry revealed today to Kicker, in a report picked up by SkySports, that it [.
When the recent north London derby clash between Arsenal and Tottenham in the Premier League was ending I did not even realise at the time that our Spanish international star Hector Bellerin had picked up an injury thanks to a rash and needless tackle by Danny Rose, which was later criticised by Arsene Wenger.
The Arsenal winger Theo Walcott returned to the starting line-up for yesterday's game against Bournemouth and happily scored the second goal to regain the lead for the Gunners. Straight away he ran to the corner flag doing the "rock the baby" celebration in recognition that his wife Melanie gave birth to his second son, named [.
One way of looking at the EFL cup from an Arsenal point of view, with Southampton heading up to the Emirates stadium on Wednesday to fight it out with us for a place in the semi-final, is that it is a great chance of a trophy for the Gunners this season. If we do beat [...]
Performance in November were poor despite 2 wins and 3 draws. by KM Hello! So Arsenal managed to beat Bournemouth, despite surviving yet another scare, after they equalised through a dodgy penalty and this concludes November which starts and ends with victories, the only 2 we recorded in this month. We haven't lost since the [.
There's been plenty of rumours about Alexis Sanchez's future at Arsenal already this season, with several sources understanding that the Gunners star won't commit to a new long term contract, until he has assurances over wages and ambition. It's been a longstanding saga that's been present at the club ever since the end of the [.
Arsenal encountered AFC Bournemouth at the Emirates today, in this weekend's set of Premier League fixtures. The Gunners won the game 3-1, but it was far from as convincing as the score line may suggest. It was not a comfortable 90 minutes for the Gunners and at several times it looked as if Bournemouth were [.
The top four in the table increased their hold on their Champions League spots this weekend with wins, but some people are still discrediting Arsenal as serious challengers for top spot. Chelsea continued their extremely impressive form by beating Fifth-placed Tottenham from a goal behind yesterday, piling further pressure on our side today, and we [.
After already playing out three draws in Nasty November, Arsenal could easily have made it four yesterday and we would have had to change the name to Nervous November as Bournemouth managed to create many chances to get a second equaliser before Alexis Sanchez put the game to bed in the 90th minute. Arsene Wenger [.
I don't know whether to feel sorry for Matthieu Debuchy or not. He started his first game for Arsenal for more than a year against Bournemouth, and he was obviously not fit enough as he was taken off with a hamstring injury after just 16 minutes. I wouldn't be surprised if that is the last [...]
Even before Alexis Sanchez made the game safe for Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, with a late goal to make it 3-1 to the Gunners after a tough test against AFC Bournemouth, I would have made the Chile international star my Man of the Match, even though he did not have his usual impact as he [...]
Arsenal are known for their injury crisis around this time of year, so we thought we'd bring you an update on the latest issues regarding our squad. Theo Walcott was taken off with 15 minutes to play on Sunday, before being seen nurturing his leg, although Arsene Wenger has insisted there is nothing to worry [.
The question of when and if Arsene Wenger will step aside and end his long reign as the manager of Arsenal is a subject for debate and will probably depend on how this season goes for the Gunners and how the Frenchman himself feels about carryingh on. With Wenger having recently turned 67 though, we [.
After a few weeks when Arsenal suffered from the usual November blues with nothing much going right for the Gunners except that unexpected and probably undeserved late equaliser at Old Trafford to stop Man United beating us again, Arsene Wenger would have been hoping for some rare good luck today when Arsenal played host to [.
The most important thing for Arsenal today was to get the win and the three points we needed to get our Premier League title challenge back on track and keep pace with the pace setters Man City, KLiverpool and Chelsea who all won yesterday. All of our rivals were pushed hard and that proved to [...]
There are a number of theories about why Arsenal have been struggling of late and one of them that just about anyone who has been watching the Gunners in recent years will agree with to some extent is that we are missing our Spanish international star Santi Cazorla. I was one of the Arsenal fans [...
Inter Milan are claimed to be eyeing a move to sign Alexis Sancheznext summer, according to reports in Italy. The Serie A side have had ambitious targets in previous seasons, and are now looking to spend big after getting a large transfer budget to work with by the owners. Inter are claimed to be lining [.
I have a feeling that picking Arsenal's Starting XI for this afternoon's game at the Emirates is not going to be as easy as it usually would be. Arsene Wenger has already admitted that he will be using some rotation after our gruelling draw against PSG in midweek, so let's look at the team he [...]
The Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is very highly respected for his work at the South Coast club and he sets his team out to be effective and entertaining, so there is no surprise that he is often tipped to be Arsenal's new manager when Arsene Wenger retires. He has done amazing things with Bournemouth in [.
The Arsenal oldboy Benik Afobe was scoring for fun when he was a youngster and started out by scoring 40 goals for the Arsenal U16's and 20 goals for the Gunners U18 side. He was signed up on professional terms at 17 and he then started out on a succession of loans away from the [...]
The teams are out for the upcoming Arsenal v Bournemouth match-up, where we will be facingformer youth product Benik Afobe, although Jack Wilshere is not allowed to face his parent club. Mathieu Debuchy is a surprise inclusion in the starting line-up today, making his first league start for our club in just over a year, [.
They may be rivals for a place in the Arsenal first team, but the veteran keeper Petr Cech and his young understudy in the Arsenal squad Emilio Martinez seem to get on pretty well if the picture of the two shown below is anything to go by. The 24-year old from Argentina came through the [...]
There some reports about Arsenal in the football press this week talking about Alexis Sanchez and how Arsene Wenger was keen to give the Chile international star a winter break like he used to have at his former clubs Udinese and Barcelona, because with his recent international commitments it has been over three years since [.
If Arsene Wenger was looking for some encouragement about his transfer plans for Arsenal as we draw ever close to the opening of the winter transfer window which is not just over a month away, the the latest Arsenal transfer rumour reported by Metro should be just whgat the doctor ordered. of Alaba but for [.
Eddie Howe's Bournemouth side are the visitors to the Emirates on Sunday, and they have to try and win without Arsenal's on-loan midfielder Jack Wilshere. Jack is obviously well regarded by the Cherries players and coach, and Jack's midfield partner Harry Arter thinks that he is exceptional. "Jack's an unbelievable player probably one of [.
This is definitely a very strange situation with all the publicity about Alexis Sanchez getting a "small" tear on his hamstring while training with the Chile national side earlier this month. If it was really serious then how come he played out of his skin four days later against Uruguay, scoring two goals, and then [.
It is quite amazing that Olivier Giroud has scored five goals in his last five games for Arsenal, but he has actually only started one game, and in that match it was the first one that he didn't score from open play. So would you say that the French hitman has earned a starting place [...]
The Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka caused plenty of cheer from the Arsenal fans when he made his move to North London from the Bundesliga. However as of yet, he's been unable to really get into the side, with Wenger sticking to an experienced Premier League midfield. Xhaka hasn't come out to state his unhappiness at [.
After Arsenal's three draws against Tottenham, Man United and PSG, it would seem obvious that an injection of fresh pace and enthusiasm could do wonders for our game, and it is hoped that the provision of such a large squad for this season would give Wenger a surfeit of riches to rotate and keep some [.
The jury is still out on whether Arsenal are set for their usual Nasty November or not, and tomorrow's game at the Emirates will be a big pointer for us. The Gunners haven't simply become a bad team at the end of October, as has happened in previous seasons, but three successive draws have made [...]
Normally in football it is better to play in front of your own fans than to play away, but the situation is not that simple for Arsenal, as the Emirates stadium is not exactly known for being an intimidating place for other teams to come to and the Arsenal fans can be somewhat less than [...]
So the next game in Nasty November is coming up on Sunday as Arsenal face Bournemouth at the Emirates, and Arsene Wenger has a few decisions to make on who starts the game. First of all we have the choice between Monreal and Gibbs for left-back, and I feel that Monreal will get the nod [...]
Well I must admit I would never have thought that I would hear our very own Mr Arsenal, Jack Wilshere, saying that he wanted the Gunners to lose a game, but this has finally happened in this crazy season. Obviously, due to his loan conditions, Jack will not be able to actually take the pitch [...]
It is certainly been a good November for us loyal Arsenal fans as we have been hearing about lots of our players coming out with pledges of loyalty, as well as, like Bellerin and Koscielny, signing new contracts in this supposedly bad month. Well we now have another one to add to this list, as [...]
The decision by Arsene Wenger to start the France international striker Olivier Giroud for Arsenalñ against PSG this week may not have worked out, but I think that the big man will be in the starting line up again this weekend when Arsenal play host to Eddie Howe´s Bournemouth side. For one thing I think [.
Santi Cazorla is out of contract come the end of the season, so why have Arsenal failed to extend his deal? The Spaniard has been one of our most influential players this season, being one of the first names on the teamsheet when fit, and I can think of no reason why he would be [...]
Apart from at the start of the season when Arsenal took just one point from the first two games, there has not been too much talk about the problems facing Arsene Wenger and his team and the reasons why we always seem to blow it, whether that is having a poor run of games in [...]
The Draxler saga continues! Julian Draxler is a player that all Arsenal fans will be well aware of nowadays, with the German international being continuously linked with the Gunners for the last few years at least. Every time the transfer window opens up, I can guarantee you that there will be a rumour about Draxler [.
We all know that November is traditionally bad for Arsenal, but records are made to be broken and this is the Gunners year for doing just that. We broke our jinxes with Chelsea and also Southampton (and Swansea too) and there is no reason why we can't beat the November jinx too! Last year, November [.
Former England internationals Steven Gerrard and Rio Ferdinand have moved to share their disappointment at Aaron Ramsey's supposed play-acting in Arsenal's Champions League encounter with Paris Saint-Germain last night. The Welshman got caught up in the encounter last night, with both sides going all-out to try and secure the win, and the assurance of having [.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger fielded Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as a makeshift right-back against Manchester United, and Jamie Carragher has now stated he believes he should look to that role for his future. The Ox has struggled to hold down a regular starting berth in the Gunners side for some time now, but impressed when coming off [.
Arsene blew November once again by Konstantin Mitov Yeah, I've seen it again. It's November and Arsene failed to win the group once again. We're fourth in the table and it's a story I've seen it so many years before. The performances have been bad. They started at Ludogorets, where I was at the game [.
Francis Coquelin does like so many other players in our side, manage to do his job rather silently on the pitch, without probably getting the praise they deserve. Coquelin is a player with many strengths, although of course he is prone to his occasional moment of hotheadedness. He is however largely a player who doesn't [.
Arsenal get back to Premier League action this weekend, but as our game against AFC Bournemouth is due to be played on Sunday and the way that the other weekend fixtures are set then we could be six points off the top of the league table when we kick off at the Emirates Stadium. Antoni [...]
Laurent Koscielny is and will be remembered as one of the very best defenders to play for the Gunners in recent decades. The Frenchman's story from unknown defender to a world class international is one that the player, club and manager can all be proud of. Koscielny now wishes to repay Arsenal and Arsene Wenger [.
I really enjoyed the free-flowing end-to-end football from both sides in last night's draw against PSG, but that is exactly the entertaining sort of game that Arsenal are great at providing. When we went 1-0 down without threatening the French Champions it looks like we were in for a torrid night, but the boys got [.
'There is no reason to panic' is what the Arsenal boss said in his comments after watching the Gunners pegged back to a 2-2 draw in the crucial Champions League home tie against PSG last night. Well I am sorry Mister Wenger but I have to disagree with your words reported by Arsenal.com and not [...]
It is sometimes hard to find anything positive to think about after your football club suffers a disappointing result or puts in a below par performance, but we Arsenal fans have had more than enough practice so I reckon I am getting quite good at it. There is no doubt that we have good reasons [...]
If you were expecting Arsenal to come out flying to take this Champions League decider against PSG by the scruff of the neck then you will have been disappointed and dismayed by the first half display, apart from the final two minutes which saw Olivier Giroud score a penalty to level the score. Until then [.
One of the big decisions for Arsene Wenger as Arsenal prepared for this evening's potentially decisive Champions League group game against PSG was what to do about his forward line. Despite the fact that Alexis Sanchez has been doing well in the new role of centre forward it was getting increasingly hard to ignore the [.
The Arsenal and Colombian international star David Ospina has so far been the man with the gloves for all of the Champions League games the Gunners have played this season, and to be fair to him there has been no reason for anyone to criticise the manager's decision. Ospina was arguably the most important Arsenal [.
Arsene Wenger was in now way suggesting that Arsenal should take it easy in our Champions League group game at home to PSG tonight, as he has called on his players to finish the job they have started by already securing a place in the next round by getting the result against the French champions [...
Paris Saint-Germain travel to London to take on Arsenal tonight, ina match whichshould decide who wins theirrespective Champions League group. The French side come into the game with much improved form having won 10 of their last 12 matches in all competitions, having started the campaign out of sorts.
The next few weeks and months will be a crucial time for Arsenal in the transfer market which could have a big say in the potential future success of the club. I do not mean the opening of the winter transfer window in January either, although that could also be important as we try to [...]
Arsenal's 1-1 draw at Manchester United on Saturday could be a sign of good things to come for Gunners fans. Arsene Wenger's side were very poor throughout the game, equalising with their first and only effort on target in the 89th minute.To play poor and come away from Old Trafford against a Jose Mourinho side [.
We are less than six weeks away from the January transfer window, and we thought we'd bring you a little insight into the latest Arsenal gossip. We refuse to overload you with pure speculation, butyou never know which of these stories will prove to be true. Three players who are being linked with the exit [.
Cazorla's future may be in doubt, despite what Wenger says! Santi Cazorla is highly regarded as a fan favourite at the Emirates and one of the most influential and talented players that the Gunners have on the books. He started the season well and showed his importance to the side, yet in the last month [.
There was some real concern for Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans last week. after the Chile international star Alexis Sanchez missed the first of his home nation's two World Cup qualifiers because of an injury picked up in training. As it turns out we did not need to worry as Alexis played the second [.
There is some injury news ahead of the Champions League clash between Arsenal and PSG you say? Well that will be more problems for the Gunners then right? Actually for one it is not, as of the two clubs fighting it out for control of group A it is the French champions that were handed [...]
The French international centre forward should certainly be in the good books of Arsene Wenger at the moment, after Olivier Giroud came to the rescue off the bench once again at the weekend with a brilliant late header to earn a point at Manchester United that did not look likely as the end of the [.
I am not one of the many Arsenal fans who thinks that Aaron Ramsey is not as good as Arsene Wenger seems to think he is (shown once again this week when he started an out of form Ramsey out wide against Man United) and that apart from that one fantastic season in 2013-14 when [...]
Rodrigo Fernandez Lavelle hasmoved to deny reports linking Lucas Perez with a potential loan exit from Arsenal. The Spanish forward joined the club in a £17 Million move from Deportivo La Coruna this summer, but has struggledfor regular first-team action, and is now sidelined with an injury. Perez has since returned to his La Coruna [.
You could say that Arsenal were lucky to come away from Paris with a point when we faced PSG in the Champions League back in September, although many will point to fact that their Uruguayan international striker Edinson Cavani and all the chances he missed was the main reason for them not sealing the win [.
There has been a lot of talk about Arsenal and our tendency to not have a very good time during the month of November. So far that theory has been proved somewhat with two draws in a ro9w but it has not exactly been a disaster and both of those draws were against big Premier [...]
I was glad to see that the Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott was quick to hold his hand up and accept the blame for his part in the opening goal of the game between Arsenal and Manchester United on Saturday, scored by Juan Mata when the Spaniard was allowed too much space to [...]
For the time being everyone concerned with the situation of the on loan Arsenal star should be quite happy and not too focused on what may happen in the future. Jack Wilshere should be happy that he is getting regular game time with his loan club AFC Bournemouth and the manager of the Cherries, Eddie [.
It's been a promising start to the season for Arsenal who are up there with Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea for what is shaping to be a closely fought title race. The Gunners won seven of the first eleven Premier League games and made around 4.5% profit for punters backing them at level stakes.
Mourinho's latest comments on Arsene Wenger are becoming very old and boring! Last weekend was a special fixture in the Premier League campaign, with two old title charging clubs in England coming face to face in the league. Both sides have had their periods of glory and even though in present day, neither may be [.
Last weekend's 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford was not a fixture that the Gunners will be very favourable of. Arsenal fans would've expected a much better performance from a side that has looked far superior to United in the league this season. However as has been the case in previous years, the [.
There have been a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours over the years and we seem to have been linked with just about every player on the planet at one time or another, but some players are linked with the Gunners on a regular basis and this generally gives you the idea that they really are [...]
Arsene Wenger has been accused of travelling to Old Trafford with the intention of snatching a draw for Arsenal. The Gunners took a point away from Manchester from the early game on Saturday, and will be happy with their return given the balance of the game was not in their favour. Coming into the game, [.
It is better for a player to make an impact when they come off the bench in a football match, of course, but at the same time you will not find too many pros who like having the tag of being a super sub, because it means they are not getting in the starting line-up. [...]
Arsenal fans took to social media to vent their anger at the sight of Calum Chambers liaising with Chelsea's Diego Costaafter Sunday's match for Middlesbrough, but were theyin the right? Calum Chambers appears to ask for Diego Costa's shirt and Arsenal fans are NOT impressed https://t.co/t3yRzgkG1W https://t.
There is six weeks until the January transfer window opens up, so we thought we'd analyse the Arsenal squad, and consider where we could strengthen. Our club are constantly linked with a number of players throughout the season, whether the transfer windows are open or not, but what areas can we actually improve on currently?
Good old Peter Cech was Arsenal's Man of the Match in the game against Man United, which is hardly a surprise considering that the Gunners did not have any shots on target right up until the dying minutes when Oli Giroud scored the equaliser. Although he was the busiest Arsenal player on the pitch, he [.
Over the last few years we have seen Arsenal's defensive capabilities greatly improve and this is largely down to the fact that the Gunners have finally got some talent when it comes to men at the back. The likes of Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi have tightened that Arsenal back line so far this season [.
Ox and Giroud – Will they ever get the game time they deserve? by RC For a long while now we have given chances to three players who have provided near to nothing this season. These players are keeping the likes of the Ox and Giroud, who as we saw yesterday, have the talent to [...]
Arsenal managed to pull off a last gasp draw with Manchester United yesterday, with the Gunners scoring an equalising goal in the 89th minute. A Olivier Giroud header was enough to peg back the hosts, who had looked far superior throughout the match, against an Arsenal side that just didn't look on the ball.
Was it just a week ago that the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger spoke publicly about Chile's decision to risk Alexis Sanchez against Uruguay as "suicidal"? And then sat up all night worrying about whether his hamstring injury would get worse? Well Alexis played in that game, and scored twice despite his thigh being heavily bandaged, [.
Even though the Arsenal and Spain star Hector Bellerin has been saying the right things in recent times on the subject of his future as a Gunner amid the growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours about his potential return to Spain's La Liga with his boyhood club FC Barcelona, we really wanted this to be [.
Arsene Wenger has been blamed for the regular injury struggles of Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean international has suffered with hamstring injuries on more than one occasion, and was a doubt as recently as last week, when he warned his country to consider not playing him in the crunch Uruguay tie, before refusing to rest [.
I am not sure that I understand why the Arsenal players would have been a bit jaded for the big Premier League match at Manchester United this weekend, even though a fair few of them had been involved for their national teams over the international break. Some like Francis Coquelin and Mesut Ozil were not [.
We can complain too much about the clinical side of the game from Arsenal this weekend, as the equalising goal headed in by Olivier Giroud just before injury time came from our one and only shot on target from the Premier League away game against Manchester United. Having just one shot on target, however, is [.
Arsene Wenger may have cut a frustrated figure on the Old Trafford touchline for most of the game between Arsenal and our Premier League rivals yesterday, but it was the Frenchman who was the happeir of the two managers when the final whistle blew, as the disgusted expression on the face of Jose Mourinho told [.
Whereas the last Premier League game before the international break was a bit unlucky for Arsenal, as we took the lead in the north London derby but were held to a draw by Tottenham thanks to a soft penalty awarded by the referee Mark Clattenburg, I think it is safe to say that Arsenal got [...]
Arsenal snatched a late equaliser against Manchester United yesterday afternoon, giving our rivals the lead for long enough for Rio Ferdinand to make himself look stupid. The Red Devils took the lead through a 68th minute Juan Mata goal, and the former England and Manchester United star took to Twitter to boast the lead, only [.
Arsene Wenger has stated that he has so much strength on his Arsenal bench, and that this helps us to remain dangerous until the final whistle in every match. The Gunners snatched a late equaliser at Old Trafford today, after falling behind in the final 30 minutes of the match, and the levelling goal came [.
Arsenal came away from yesterday's game at Man United with a point, despite lacking the usual freeflowing attacking football that we are used to seeing. In fact the Gunners did not have a shot on target until Olivier Giroud's late late equaliser from Oxlade-Chamberlain's superb cross. Most Gooners were at a loss to understand why [.
Why are Arsenal players and Arsene afraid the big teams? The performance of our team today against Man United was one of the poorest which I have seen this season. We were lucky to share the point with them. From the start of the match till the end Arsenal players were anonymous and unable to [...]
My ratings for the utterly dismal performance against Man United: by ThirdManJW Cech – 8 Didn't have too much to do, but excellent when called upon Jenkinson – 4 Looked really out of his depth in this fixture, seemed weak in challenges Mustafi – 6 Up and down performance, and dwelt on the ball at [.
Arsenal came away from today's trip to Manchester United relieved to have picked upa point after a disappointing display, but was it the player's or the manager who should pick up the slack for our downfall today? The French boss had some tough decisions to make today,and some of those could come under question, including [.
Manchester United and England legend Gary Neville has poured water on Arsenal's Premier League title credentials. The Gunners can consider themselves lucky to have snatched a point away from their tie at Old Trafford today, havingbeen dominated for much of the game. Arsenal went into half-time with the scores tied at 0-0, but following the [.
If there is one thing for sure when it comes to Arsenal and the crucial Champions League game at home to the French champions at PSG on Wednesday it6 is that Olivier Giroud will be expecting his name to be in the starting line up. If it is not then the France international star will [...]
As we prepare for the Arsenal Premier League away clash with Manchester United, Arsene Wenger has been keen to play down the rivalry between him and the United boss, stating that is the players on the pitch that will be up against each other more than the men shouting orders from the dugout. At the [.
Arsenal beat Tottenham Hotspur in the Under-23 development league, thanks to a Mathieu Debuchy opener. The Gunners Under-23 side have not been doing all that well so far this season, but today's win was their second in a row, and that helped them to climb to within seven points of the top of the table.
Manchester United vs Arsenal – A Statistical Preview Despite the emergence of a number of other Premier League teams since this fixture rose to prominence at the turn of the century, Man United V Arsenal still has an edge unlike many games. There have been many memorable encounters between the sides in the Premier League [.
The game between Man United and Arsenal has always been one of the highlights of any season, and this season the expectation has been raised even higher by the well-documented rivalry between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho, but Le Prof thinks that that is but a sideshow and what matters is how good the game [.
Okay Arsenal fans, we only have 90 minutes before Arsene Wenger releases the official team to face Man United at Old Trafford, so let's see who can get the whole starting XI correct. We already know that Hector Bellerin, Lucas Perez, Santi Cazorla, Chuba Akpom, Per Mertesacker and Danny Welbeck are all unavailable, and there [.
The big question on the lips of most Arsenal fans this week as we prepare for the big Premier League clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford today was about the fitness of our Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez and whether or not Arsene Wenger would risk him after the injury concern surrounding him during the [.
Arsenal went to Old Trafford today hoping to end a 10 year wait for a Premier League win away at Old Trafford and we had a great chance to do so against a Manchester United side weakened significantly by the absence of key players like Ibrahimovic, Bailly, Smalling and Fellaini. Once again, however, Arsenal did [.
When Arsenal take on Manchester United at Old Trafford tomorrow it will be just the third game of the month and there will still be three games left for the Gunners to play in November, so to say that we have to beat United tomorrow in an away game we have not won for 10 [...]
Arsenal have been putting right a lot of problems over the last few years; ending the nine year wait for a trophy with back to back Fa cups not being the least of them. Arsene Wenger and the lads have also answered a few questions and proved wrong some doubts that were being aimed at [...]
There could be two very different approaches that Arsenal will face at Old Trafford tomorrow, with some fans expecting Jose Mourinho to set his Manchester United team up to stifle the space and frustrate our fluent, and creative attacking football, while some including our veteran keeper Petr Cech thinking that Mourinho will have to be [.
When I ask the question of whether Arsenal can do a Chelsea over Manchester United there are two ways to take it, but I think that both apply. When our Germany international star Mesut Ozil was talking about Chelsea this week however, as reported by the Evening Standard, it was clear that he was saying [.
Arsenal go to Old Trafford tomorrow needing a win to make sure that we do not drop more than one game's worth of points behind the current Premier League leaders, with Liverpool sitting on top of the table on 26 points, Chelsea one behind with 25 and the Gunners fourth and level on points with [...]
The last time Arsenal went to Old Trafford for a Premier League match we were full of optimism as Manchester United were not only struggling in general for form under Louis van Gaal but were going through a bit of an injury crisis. The Gunners head there this weekend with a similar sort of situation [.
Five or six years ago, most Arsenal fans would have said they did not feel comfortable at all with the first team defence. A mixture of shaky inexperienced youngsters, paired with the old and average centre backs of the past, was not a good look for Arsene Wenger's side. The centre back options of Squillaci, [.
It is very easy for an Arsenal fan to predict an easy win for the Gunners in tomorrows match at Man United, but usually such predictions are based on what your heart says and not on any sort of algorithmic or statistical basis. So this morning I can see that most of the bookies are [...]
With the Arsenal transfer rumours beginning to grow in number and frequency as the opening of the winter transfer window at the start of January draws ever closer, it is not surprising to read stories about some of our players being targeted by other clubs. And with his Welsh international teammate Gareth Bale already firmly [.
Why Arsenal have to beat United according to Wrighty! The international break is over which means domestic club football returns. Arsenal come back full speed ahead, with the Gunners travelling up north to face Manchester United on Saturday. It's sure to be a very challenging match for the Gunners, despite a drop in form from [.
This weeks View From the Enemy comes from the official Man United website, where they discuss Mourinho's excellent record against Arsene Wenger, Alexis Sanchez, and also who could be replacing the Super Swede Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the United attack...... Read on.... Talking points: Manchester United v Arsenal Arsenal will provide the opposition on Saturday as [.
Carl Jenkinson looks set for an extended run of first-team action for Arsenal, following the loss of Hector Bellerin. The Spanish full-back was one of our stand-out performersof our last two seasons, even earning a place in the Premier League Team of the Year, but has just been ruled out for the next four weeks.
Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players should be well aware of the potential dangers that we may face from the Manchester United and England international forward Marcus Rashford, as it was the Gunners that were United's opponents when Rashford made his memorable Premier League debut last season. That was a potentially pivotal game for us [.
Will Arsenal injuries prove costly against United? By Twig Arsenal clash with Manchester United in a must win game on Saturday. Aside the small personal battle between Wenger and Mourinho (which neither manager admits!), we need a win to keep momentum with Liverpool at the top of the table. However, Arsenal hopes for a good [.
The Arsenal and Nigeria international youngster Alex Iwobi is already very well thought of by us fans and is forging a very impressive reputation for himself for club and country since breaking into the Arsenal first team about a year ago and then getting the call-up to the senior Nigeria side. Just this week the [.
As the international break came to a close yesterday and the players made their way back to London today, it's good news to report that the Gunners have no new injury concerns going into the big weekend fixture against Manchester United. Despite initial concerns to Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez regarding a muscular injury picked up [.
Arsenal have managed to end the final international break for 2016 without picking up any new concerns on the injury front. However whilst some of our biggest stars now return to first team training with Arsenal, one key man who remains missing through injury is Santi Cazorla. Cazorla has become a key player for the [.
Of course everyone connected with Arsenal Football Club would prefer it if Alexis Sanchez was on the pitch when our important Premier League clash with Manchester United kicks off at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, but not if it leads to a long spell on the injury list for such a crucial player. The Chile [.
Manchester United play host to Arsenal on Saturday afternoon, so we thought we'd take a look into our opponents squad. We obviously come into the match in top form, having not lost since the opening weekend of the season, while our rivals are not blessed with much of the same. The Red Devils come into [.
After Arsenal were forced to accept a draw in our last Premier League match, which even though it was a north London derby was a disappointing result with the respective form that Arsenal and Tottenham took into the game, it is very important that we get back to winning ways this weekend. Arsene Wenger will [.
Alexis-Giroud-Walcott: Can Wenger Forge a Killer Formation? by NO The three names mentioned above are probably the most fearful for any defenders to face in England right now. They all belong to Arsenal and they are showing deadly precision in attacking. The other thing not mentioned here is they are powered by a rampant attacking [.
Arsenal fans may start to feel that the transfer action at the club is something akin to the London buses that go past the ground, as in you wait for ages and then three come along at the same time. That is if the recent Arsenal transfer rumour about the Roma and Argentina international star [...]
It's not quite "squeaky bum time" yet, in the immortal words of Sir Alex Ferguson, but Arsenal's game at Old Trafford this weekend could certainly be a big boost for either sides ambitions to be doing battle at the top of the table come the end of the season. Arsene Wenger himself has a big [...]
Arsenal are blessed with with a large squad of performing stars at present, and with Olivier Giroud fit and ready to return, there could be argument for a switch in tactics. The Frenchmanbagged an important brace against Sunderland, after coming off the bench with the scores tied at 1-1, and he is now knocking on [.
A striker with all the qualities that the Arsenal and Chile international star possesses is not an easy thing to find, so if the Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that the former Barcelona forward may decide not to accept the offer of a new contract this season, when his current deal will enter its final year, [.
The young Arsenal and Nigerian international winger Alex Iwobi only made it into the Gunners first team towards the end of last season, but he is fully aware that the depth and quality of Arsene Wenger's squad means that he could easily be replaced at any time, and this makes him try his absolute hardest [.
Everyone in the Arsenal setup, including Arsene Wenger and me, have been extremely worried about the Chile manager playing our injured superstar, Alexis Sanchez, in last nights crucial World Cup Qualifier against Uruguay. But, although Sanchez had his leg heavily strapped, he managed to complete 84 minutes of the game, and scored two brilliant second [.
The Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has been a giant for Arsenal since arriving from Malaga in 2012, and although he is getting on a bit he was only a few votes behind Alexis Sanchez in the "Most Important Player" poll in JustArsenal recently, but for some reason he has hardly played for Spain during his [.
Arsene Wenger may have an Arsenal injury list to cope with, including two of the forwards in his squad DannY Welbeck and Lucas Perez, but that does not necessarily mean that the boss will have to field a weakened Arsenal side when we go to Old Trafford for the big Premier League match of the [...]
Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi has claimed that he is always giving his all on the pitch, knowing that there is a number of players ready to play in his place. The 20 year-old broke through into the first team in early 2016, and has become a regular starter for Arsene Wenger, keeping Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lucas [.
We are likely to find out more over the next few days on the subject of Hector Bellerin, after the talented young right back was forced to withdraw from the Spain under 21 national team last week when he picked up an ankle injury. The sports injury website physioroom.com the Spaniard is pencilled in to [.
Here is a little light-hearted break from the trials and tribulations of Alexis Sanchez's possible hamstring injury. Before he went off to Chile, the official Arsenal website had a small chat with our new superstar striker (although they didn't actually post it until yesterday, so maybe they are trying to deflect our attention as well?
The subject of money is never far from the forefront of debate between Arsenal fans about whether Arsene Wenger and the board are running our great club the right way or if the resistance to the money way of throwing mountains of cash at things is nothing more than an excuse for being tight fisted [.
With a little bit less than two months to go until the winter transfer window opens in January, Arsenal fans had better get used to all sorts of rumours linking the Gunners with every player under the sun. That is not too stressful for us but what is will be all the stories in the [...]
As Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger wait nervously and hope that no more of our players picks up an injury in the international games still to be played this week, thoughts will inevitably turn more and more towards Old Trafford and the big Premier League clash between Arsenal and Manchester United this weekend.
We still have one more round of international games to go before the Arsenal take the trip up to Old Trafford for Arsene Wenger's grudge match of the year. The Gunners have had a fair amount of invalids already this season and it looks like Hector Bellerin and Alexis Sanchez could be added to that [.
It appears that all of the concern and consternation coming from the Arsenal camp over the injury to the Chile international Alexis Sanchez may have been nothing more than a storm in a teacup, with a bit of thigh bandaging thrown in for good measure. It looks like the Arsenal striker will be starting for [.
Arsenal fans may be getting worried that our usual bad luck with injury problems is coming back and is going to ruin yet another Premier League title challenge. It is certainly not a good thing that the sports injury website physioroom.com shows that the Gunners have more players in the treatment room than all of [.
With Arsenal having so far during the current season further increased our reputation for playing fluent and attractive football that is often more focused on the creative and attacking side of the game, you might think that the Arsenal players most likely to have made the Premier League team of the season so far would [.
Jack Wilshere is and probably always will be an idolised player for many fans of Arsenal Football Club. Not because of his off the field antics or of course his injury issues, but rather because of his talent and style of play when fit and even more so his passion for the club. Wilshere is [...]
Serge Gnabry has stated that he would not have made it to this high-point in his career had he not spent time atArsenal, aftermarking his international debut with a hat-trick. The 21 year-old left the Gunners in the summer in order to join Werder Bremen, as the youngster looked to seal regular first-team action having [.
I am really hoping that me last post hasn't jinxed the Arsenal superstar Alexis Sanchez, as it now seems certain that he will be playing for Chile tomorrow night as his coach Juan Antonio Pizzi has made it clear that he is fit and ready to play... ‘Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal & Claudio Bravo are [.
As you can all see from the picture, the latest news from South America is that Alexis Sanchez is back in training, despite his hamstring injury. For some reason he has a bandage over the injured area, but how that be of any help for an internal injury I am failing to grasp, unless it [...]
Arsenal are claimed to be looking at signing Chris Smalling from Manchester United, but surely we have more than we need in defensive numbers. We signed Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi this summer, due to having lost both Per Mertesacker and Gabriel Paulista to injury, and the new arrivals have been thoroughly impressive thus far.
There are a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours concerning the future of our Chile international star Alexis Sanchez, who along with the other big name Arsenal star Mesut Ozil is currently in talks with the club about an extension to their current contracts which will have just one year left to run at the [.
It looks like there is going to be a young up-and-coming French international coming on to the transfer market very shortly, and Arsenal are rumoured to be one of the clubs interested in signing him. Paul-Georges Ntep is currently playing at Rennes in Ligue 1, and despite being born in Cameroon, he has played for [.
With this international break seeming to last for ever, I have looking around for other things to entertain my loyal readers, and this new video of The Magic of Mesut Ozil is definitely worth a look. The German superstar may have been known as the assist king for many years, but in this campaign it [.
The Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has been the subject of many media reports over the past month or so, not simply because of his fantastic performances so far this season, but also because of the ongoing contract talks with the Gunners. Contract talks between Mesut Ozil and Arsenal are slow, but steady if you want [.
Despite the Arsenal and Germany star Mesut Ozil being one of the best attacking and creative football players in the world, there has been an awful lot of criticism directed at him ever since he signed for Arsenal from Real Madrid back in the summer transfer window of 2013. Ozil has had some bad games [.
There are some worrying signs that things may not going well in the contract negotiations between Arsenal and Alexis Sanchez. Maybe the fact that the Gunners did not win the title last year when we should have had it wrapped up or maybe Alexis wants too much money, or maybe he is getting annoyed with [.
Monreal has today revealed that he could be looking to move on from Arsenal in the not so distant future. Although the Spaniard has made it very clear in his statement today that he hasn't thought about leaving Arsenal anytime soon, he has admitted that perhaps he wouldn't mind playing for Athletic Bilbao in the [.
During the summer it came to the surprise of many fans to see one of the brightest Arsenal talents, Serge Gnabry, leave the club in a quick turn of events. After a very poor previous season, it was hoped that Gnabry was going to get a chance to shine for the Gunners or out on [...]
No wonder Arsene Wenger has admitted just recently that he suffers a lot of stress every time an international break comes along to disrupt his preparations for the Premier League, domestic cups and Champions League trophy hunts, with Arsenal players heading off around the world to play for their respective national teams.
Even though Arsene Wenger no longer has his hands tied, financially speaking, when it comes to bringing new players to Arsenal and keeping our best ones from being cherry picked during a transfer window, the Frenchman still does not have the clout of a few of our Premier League rivals such as Man City and [.
The best thing to happen over the next week from an Arsenal fan's point of view would be for the manager of the Chile national team to err on the side of caution and not play our striker Alexis Sanchez in their World Cup qualifier and for the former Barcelona star to arrive back in [...]
We asked our readers to vote on which Arsenal player was most crucial to our title aspirations, and the two most selected are disappointingly unavailable currently. Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla have earned the right to be called the most important Arsenal players this season, with some thoroughly impressive displays, and typically are both currently [.
Alex Iwobi has certainly made an impact since being promoted to the Arsenal first team, and it is obvious that his confidence has also gone through the roof. He helped Nigeria beat their closest rivals, Algeria, for the World Cup Qualifying spot last night, but all the focus was on this lovely bit of footwork.
With Arsenal's big game at Old Trafford coming up next weekend, Arsene Wenger must be becoming increasingly distraught as to whether Chile will carry out their threat to play Alexis Sanchez on Tuesday, but obviously the Chilean is not the only problem he is worried about. Èveryone may think that, with most of his players [.
Perhaps this is a little bit of good news for Arsenal fans after the depressing news about Alexis Sanchez and Hector Bellerin getting injured while off on international duty. It is clear that if Sanchez comes back with an injured hamstring then the Gunners have enormous problems in the striking department ahead of our vital [.
The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey may have only played a couple of half games for the Gunners since returning from his hamstring injury sustained in our opening match against Liverpool, but he is certain to start tonight for Wales against Serbia in the crucial World Cup Qualifying game. Ramsey was brilliant for his country in [.
Arsene Wenger is rightly very worried about his Arsenal players while they are away on international duty, and probably even more so after the news that both Alexis Sanchez and Hector Bellerin were injured before they had even kicked a ball. With this in mind he has publicly asked for Didier Deschamps to rest the [.
Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi would turn down a move to Barcelona, his father claimed. The Nigerian international broke into the Gunners first-team earlier in 2016, and has thoroughly impressed in a very short time. Iwobi is now a regular in the starting line-up, despite the wealth ofmidfield options, and is tipped to be a world-beater [.
Mertesacker reveals his recovery plan back to full fitness! It was announced earlier today that whilst one Arsenal superstar has an injury concern that'll frighten the Gunners faithful, there's another player that is progressing well towards an early recovery. Alexis Sanchez who is currently away with Chile, has got the Arsenal medical team stressing with [.
Lucas Perez was expected to play a big part in Arsenal's team this season, with the fans hoping that he'd fill the void left by an absent striker for many years. Lucas hasn't really had his chance as of yet and injuries have held him back. However, with the Spaniard apparently ahead of schedule in [.
Just at the time when Arsenal are suffering from the sort of lengthy injury list that seems to affect us every year, the last thing that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans need is to hear about one of the players we let go doing really well and suggesting that the boss may have dropped [...]
Poor old Aaron Ramsey came back from his summer break with some brilliant performances for Wales under his belt, but after being played (maybe a little too early?) in Arsenal's very first game against Liverpool he suffered a hamstring injury, and has made just one start since then. But he will definitely be starting for [.
Lucas Perez has moved to claim that he is all set for an early return from injury, just as Arsenal have doubts over Alexis Sanchez'savailability. The Gunners are known for their injury problems, and this time of year is usually when things start to go wrong, and that appeared no different when having five doubts [.
We will have to wait until around half past two next Saturday to see if Arsenal come away from Old Trafford in top spot on the Premier League table, which we will if we take all three points from our game against Manchester United. For now, though, we can only look ahead to the match [...]
Arsene Wenger has already been hit with some bad news during the current international break, with two very important Arsenal players in Alexis Sanchez and Hector Bellerin picking up injury problems and making us wonder whether the old injury curse is coming back to bite us on the bum once again. The boss also got [.
Last season Arsenal started in brilliant fashion with Alexis Sanchez playing out of his skin after his win in the Copa America, but it must be said, most Gooners knew that he was being overplayed and it was only a matter of time before his body reached the burn out stage. But Alexis himself hates [..
All Arsenal fans get frustrated with Arsene Wenger during summer transfer windows, as he always seems to appear inactive while other top clubs are signing top players left, right and centre. But once the window ends we get the players and agents crawling out of the woodwork saying that Arsenal bid for one player or [.
Mesut Ozil arrived at Arsenal with a widespread reputation of being that man that makes things tick, the man that delivers the killer passes to enable other players to get on the scoresheet, in other words 'the assist king of Europe'. But to get that reputation he has had an undeveloped scoring record himself, in [.
After the international break, Arsenal restart their Premier League campaign with an away game against Jose Mourinho's Man United, and with the ongoing animosity between Arsene Wenger and the hated Portugese bus conductor, there is little surprise that Jose will be keen to start the mind games early to unsettle the Arsenal players.
Arsene Wenger must be very worried about Arsenal's striking options ahead of next week's visit to Manchester United. Lucas Perez, Chuba Akpom and Danny Welbeck are out injured with little hope of a return for any of them before Christmas. The latest news from Chile about Alexis Sanchez's hamstring is very very worrying, and Yaya [.
Well known UK bookmaker Coral announced this week they are offering enhanced odds of 28/1 on England to beat Scotland tonight. Coral offer 28/1 on England to beat Scotland. Claim that exclusive price here. Scotland travel south to take on England at Wembley tonight, and Coral are getting involved in this major sporting event by [.
Arsenal certainly have their most indepth talented squad of the last decade right now, but although Arsene Wenger always tries to explain that football is a team game rather than an individual sport, that doesn't stop everyone voting in Player-of-the-month competitions does it? So with the boring interlull upon us maybe its time to discuss [.
There was much speculation about the injury to the Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin after he missed training with the Spanish U21 side this week, which was only increased when we discovered that he had posted a picture of his swollen ear after the Tottenham match. But today it is being reported that the 21 year-old [.
Arsenal fans have always hated the boring international breaks that come during crucial points of the season, especially as we always seem to get our players back injured, and this particular one has already thrown up two injury problems with Alexis Sanchez suffering a hamstring tear, and Hector Bellerin being sent home by Spain.
The Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez has suffered a hamstring tear in training with the Chile team, and it appears that Arsene Wenger is extremely unhappy that the South Americans are going to keep the Gunners superstar and maybe risk playing Alexis next Tuesday against Uruguay. Le Prof is demanding that Arsenal should have access to [.
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is said to be considering his future away from our beloved club currently, andthere might just be a way we could maximise such an exit. The Gunners midfielder came through the ranks of our youth system, and has long been touted as a future captain of our first-team, but due to [.
Arsenal have come to an agreement with Deportivo La Coruna which will allow Lucas Perez to continue his rehabilitation from injury in Spain. Lucas joined the club this summer from Depor in a £17 Million deal, and had just started beginning to impress before falling foul of injury. The forward has been out since picking [.
The Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin was reported yesterday as having been pulled out of training with the Spain U21 side, apparently, although the nature of this has not been officially confirmed, with an ear injury. What has been confirmed though, is that he has not just been pulled out of training, but he has also [.
It would appear that the Chile manager does like Arsenal or Arsene Wenger, as we saw last season when he played Alexis when he was injured, and it looks like the same thing is going to happen again. After Hector Bellerin was replaced in the Spain U21 squad we were all hoping that the same [...]
There's been plenty of speculation surrounding the future of Olivier Giroud these last few weeks, with the Frenchman struggling to get minutes on the pitch. After a very slow start to the season for Giroud, who struggled with fitness following on from an extended summer break. Giroud was given extra time off in the summer [.
Petr Cech insiststhat Arsenal have what it takes to challenge for this season's Premier League title. The 34 year-old has won the division four times with previous employers Chelsea, and fully believes that his current club now have what it takes to make their own push to win this year's domestic title.
When Arsenal signed Petr Cech back in the summer of 2015, it followed a trend of world class additions in Ozil and Alexis from the previous years. Cech's signing showed that for three consecutive years Arsenal wanted to strengthen and show ambition that we were ready to compete amongst the big European sides again.
It was looking like a very good week for Arsenal fans and Hector Bellerin, with the Gunners right-back apparently signing a new long term contract. However as with every international break that falls upon us, there's inevitably bad news just around the corner. Finding out that Alexis Sanchez has picked up an injury that could [.
Arsenal fans may have at first been worried about Alexis Sanchez recovering from his muscle tear in time to face Man United next week, but according to the Chilean newspaper El Mercurio the player himself has told his friends: "It is hurting a bit but I'm fine. I'll be back for Tuesday." A source in [.
Joel Campbell receiving mix reviews in Portugal! There had been a lot of faith in Joel Campbell when the Costa Rican first arrived at Arsenal. Having spent the first few years of his career bouncing around different clubs on loan whilst he awaited a work permit to be approved in England, it seemed as if [.
This time of year is known to be dreaded by Arsenal fans, but news that Hector Bellerin has signed a new six-year deal could well put a positive spin on things. Last November, our beloved club only managed to gain two Premier League points, including a 1-1 home draw against North-London neighbours Tottenham, but the [.
A few years ago, nobody could have contemplated Jack Wilshere leaving Arsenal or being anything less than the mainstay of the England midfield for the whole of the current decade. But fate and injuries conspired against the gods and have brought him so far down in the pecking order that he decided he had to [.
Hot on the heels of Alexis Sanchez explaining why he thought that Arsenal could "win all" yesterday, we now have another of our Arsenal stars explaining why the Gunners are so much better equipped this season to go one better than our second place in the last campaign. Petr Cech believes that we have far [.
Jack Wilshere was considered to have taken Tony Adams old title of Mr Arsenal after his ongoing comments about Tottenham and his never-ending loyalty to the Gunners, who he joined when he was just six years old. But now he has not only just gone on loan to Bournemouth this season, but Jack has also [.
Idiot ex-Chelsea failure insults Arsenal's Mesut Ozil I know it is the international break and there is not much for the TV Pundits to talk about, but sometimes they simply go too far. I don't think I've even heard about a nobody ex-Chelsea player called Jason Cundy, but he really needs to get a life [.
With the international break upon us and Arsenal not set to return to our screens for another two weeks, it gives us a chance to catch up on some of the news and rumours that are focused away from our busy club schedule. One topic of interest is the transfer speculation that continues to surround [..
In an earlier post today I made the terrible mistake of saying that Olivier Giroud would only get his starting spot back for Arsenal if Alexis Sanchez got injured.... I reckon the writers at CNN in Chile must have been reading that, because they are now reporting that our superstar has had to leave training [.
There is nothing wrong with a bit of faith in your Arsenal team-mates and you won't win anything without confidence, so it is heartening to hear Alexis Sanchez talking about the Gunners winning everything this season with our new improved Arsenal squad. The Chilean knows there is a long way to go, but it is [.
The way that the fixture list is falling at the minute may well feel like the worst possible timing for Arsenal fans and to be fair it is far from ideal for us to have to face a north London derby with Tottenham and a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the [...]
The Arsenal and England midfield star Jack Wilshere has had more than his fair share of injury problems already in his playing career. In fact he has probably missed more days due to injury than something like 90 percent of professional footballers and he is still only 24-years old. So it is fitting and a [.
With the latest international break now upon us, it means that we can wave goodbye to seeing Arsenal play for the next two weeks, until we return for a tough match against United in late November. Depending on fitness, for players who miss out on making the national team selection, it can be a time [.
There has been extensive Arsenal transfer rumours regarding the future of our young Spanish defender Hector Bellerin, with both Barcelona and Manchester City linked with a move to poach our talented right-back. despite the 21 year-old still having a long-term contract at the Emirates. Last month, with this in mind, Arsene Wenger vowed to extend [.
Arsenal Fantasy Wonders: The fantasy football scene is in full swing at present, and with more and more people taking on the fantasy sports betting scene the competition is strong and you must be looking to fill your Arsenal quota by now. The most obvious inclusion from last year would have had the majority of [.
Poor old Olivier Giroud, he has been Arsenal's top scorer for three years in a row, but he has never been truly admired by many of the home crowd, in fact he has been vilified as the reason for us not winning the title last season after failing to score for 15 games in a [...]
Alex Iwobi is our most recent youngster to breakthrough into the Arsenal first-team, but is he doing enough at present? I cant help but feel like he is going to be a great player, but his form of late has not impressed me, and I would hate for fans to call for him to be [...]
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has worked without a Sporting Director since David Dein left in 2007, but now one of Le Prof's legends, Robert Pires, is keen to come and step into that role. Pires was asked by the Express if he wanted a sporting director job with the Gunners, he replied: "Yes, that [.
The big news from the current international break from an Arsenal point of view involves our on-loan midfield star Jack Wilshere, who has been brought back into the fold by the temporary manager Gareth Southgate after getting some regular game time with his current club AFC Bournemouth. I am not surprised to be honest but [.
Arsenal have been left in fourth place in the Premier League after the inconclusive draw against Tottenham yesterday, but should the Gunners have taken all three points and ended up joint top with Liverpool? Our Spanish defender Hectot Bellerin is convinced we should have. "I'm a bit disappointed with the result because I think the [.
Arsenal have not lost either of the two games that we have played in November so far, but we could have done and our performances in those two games against Ludogorets Razgrad and Tottenham will surely bring up the questions about whether or not this season's version of the Gunners can avoid the usual nightmare [.
Arsenal loanee Jack Wilshere has been selected to make his return to international action next week. England are set to take on Scotland at Wembley on Friday evening in the World Cup 2018 group qualifiers, before taking on Spain in a friendly match the following Tuesday evening. The squads have now been announced for the [.
Just as he would have done if Arsenal had beaten Tottenham in the north London derby yesterday, Arsene Wenger has moved to pour water on any panic or overreaction to where the result has left Arsenal, reminding us all that there is a long way to go and that it is still very tight at [...]
Even though the summer signing Granit Xhaka had probably his best game in an Arsenal shirt since his transfer from the Bundesliga, I thought that Mesut Ozil just edged him as our best player in the draw with Tottenham yesterday. The German did produce the wicked free kick that led to our goal, after all, [.
Arsene Wenger has claimed that Tottenham were given the advantage against Arsenal today, with a soft penalty and a let-off of a red card. The Gunners succumbed to a 1-1 draw in today's North London Derby with Spurs, and their manager has now claimed that the referee helped their opponents to earn their point.
Petr Cech stated that his Arsenal side are in a great spot to land their first Premier League title in over a decade. The Gunners limped to a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to neighbours Tottenham Hotspur today,which left them two points behind Liverpool at the head of the table. Petr Cech has now insisted [.
Looking at things from an Arsenal point of view I definitely agree with Arsene Wenger's suggestion that the penalty awarded against the Gunners today was a soft one and that Moussa Dembele was looking for it when he ran into the box and into three Arsenal players that he was never going to get past. [.
The ability of Arsene Wenger to attract the top quality players to Arsenal and to keep the ones we already have at the club despite the fact that the Gunners do not or cannot match the really crazy transfer fees and wages paid by the likes of Manchester United and Man City will be a [...]
Hector Bellerin has talked up the possibility of becoming the Arsenal captain in the future, and I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting consistency with the armband. Arsene Wenger haschanged the captaincy five times since 2010, and our current choice has missed the current campaign thus far through injury.
So the day has finally arrived. Arsenal, unbeaten since the first game of the season, host Tottenham, who haven't lost any game at all in the League. The immovable object faces the unstoppable force... We all know how important this game is to the team, the season, and most of all the supporters, that's us [.
I cannot help but feel a little bit sorry for our centre forward Olivier Giroud, who gets more than his fair share of criticism from fans of Arsenal and the France national team, despite his record being pretty good. He does a good job for us and was a big part of the Gunners winning [...]
I was so disappointed that Arsenal did not go for the jugular today and take advantage of the poor run of form that our local rivals Tottenham have been suffering with. Instead we let them settle and grow into the game and then once we had finally got going and taken the lead, we let [...]
While Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping that a derby day clash with Arsenal can get his struggling Spurs team out of the rut they have gotten themselves into over the last month or so, the opposite could also be true and the Gunners could effectively end their hopes of a successful season. An Arsenal win [.
Arsenal always want to win every game we play, of course, and just like any local derby the games against Tottenham take on extra significance. Arsene Wenger clearly understands the passion of the north London derby after being our manager for more than 20 years and with most of our players having been with us [.
Arsenal fans found out to our cost just how well organised and frustrating Middlesbourough can be, as Aitor Karanka´s team held the Gunners to a draw a couple of weeks ago to halt our growing momentum and stop us going clear at the top of the Premier League. The newly promoted team worked extremely hard [.
While Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger do not tend to look forward to an international break with much more than gritted teeth and crossed fingers in case any of our players pick up an injury, we do also want the Gunners' form and performances to be recognised by their national coaches. So while I thought [.
You may have seen recently how Arsenal legend Thierry Henry labelled fellow Frenchman and current Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud, as a Plan B option for Arsene Wenger. Giroud, who has fallen slightly out of favour at the Emirates due to Alexis Sanchez's form up front, did manage to make an instant impact by scoring twice [.
When Arsenal met our local rivals Tottenham in the north London derby at White Hart Lane in March last season, we needed a goal from the great Alexis Sanchez just to rescue a point after Harry Kane had produced a superb curler from long range to give them the lead. That was the England international's [.
There is little doubt that Arsenal are the team in form as we prepare for the latest installation of the local rivalry between us and Tottenham, who may have started the current season well, but have gone off the rails a bit in recent weeks. In fact the north London derby on Sunday will be [...]
Arsenal have to make sure that we get all three points against Tottenham in the north London derby first, but with us in great form and the spuds having a torrid time you have to make us big favourites on Sunday. That would be a great start for the Gunners as we try to put [...]
Arsenal V Spurs : Statistical preview North London derbies have become ever more competitive in recent seasons, and expect that to continue when the two teams meet for the first time this season on Sunday. The Gunners are on a slightly better run of form coming into the fixture, with four wins in the last [.
If all goes according to current form then Arsenal should run out comfortable winners in the first north London derby of the season tomorrow. I firmly believe that we will as well, with Tottenham on a poor run of results and looking shorn of confidence and the Gunners looking strong all over the pitch and [.
Over the years that Arsene Wenger has held his reign over Arsenal Football Club, it's no secret that Le Prof has had his fair share of offers to move elsewhere. After 20 years at the helm of Arsenal, there have been many rumours already this season, that this year will be his last campaign with [...]
On every occasion that Arsene Wenger has won the league with Arsenal, the team has shown great technical ability, but also a strength and toughness to their game. Arsenal have been aggressive, strong in the challenge and haven't laid down for anyone. Pundits from the journalism world, as well as former Referee Howard Webb, have [.
Jack Wilshere publicly announced last week that he felt he had to leave Arsenal this season if he was going to allow his career to progress forward. After being snubbed for the English national side and with competition for places extremely high at Arsenal, it was a big wake up call for Wilshere, who felt [.
When Arsene Wenger gave us the latest Arsenal injury update the other day, there was a lot of concern that our annual bad luck was coming back to cause us problems at the worst possible time, with the first north London derby of the season coming on Sunday. Although it still looks like the manmager [.
I do not think I need to say that the Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez will be starting the north London derby this weekend, unless of course something untoward happens to him between now and then. The rest of the Arsenal front line is not so easy to predict though. Now that Arsene [.
Maybe it is because we are so used to Arsenal being plagued by injury problems year after year that it seems normal, but it does seem a bit odd that a lot of the talk in the football media in the build up to the north London derby this weekend is about the injury problems [...]
Arsenal expect to have world class players in their side and whilst it's good to show quality in the position you play, to be versatile in a number of positions increases your chances of getting regularly played. At Arsenal, we face the rather 'fortunate' problem of perhaps having one too many midfielders in the middle [.
If the Arsenal starting line-up for the north London derby on Sunday does include the summer signing Granit Xhaka, then do not be surprised if the Tottenham players try to wind the Swiss international star up a bit, as the new Gunner does have a poor recent disciplinary record. With eight red cards for club [.
Considering that Tottenham are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League I am expecting to get a nice price on Arsenal in Sunday's big game, so it's time to do a little research to see if we can all make some easy money against the Spuds as well as getting the ultimate satisfaction of [...]
The Arsenal and Wales midfield star has returned from his hamstring injury just in time to be available for the first north London derby of the current season, although it remains to be seen whether Arsene Wenger puts him straight into the starting line up for the visit of Tottenham in the Premier League on [.
History looked like it was about to repeat itself for yet another consecutive season, as the Gunners looked like they had put themselves at a disadvantage for top spot. Whilst Arsenal were drawing 2-2 with Ludogorets, our champions league group rivals PSG were winning away in Basel. A Basel equaliser looked as if Arsenal may [.
First of all Arsenal fans, I want to say that I am not revelling in the misfortunes of others, but with Tottenham next up in the Premier League I am sure that Arsene Wenger would take any help we can get in beating our local rivals at the Emirates stadium on Sunday. Mauricio Pochettino does [...]
Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he has five possible doubts for the weekend's Arsenal-Tottenham match-up. The Gunners play host to rivals Tottenham this weekend in the North London Derby, and both managers have question marks over the availability of some key players. We are already without the likes of Lucas Perez, Per Mertesacker, Chuba Akpom [.
While Arsenal got off to s slow start to the current Premier League campaign, a lot of people's pre-season favourites Manchester City hit the ground running and seemed to have instantly adapted to the ways of their new manager Pep Guardiola, which was certainly not what Arsenal fans wanted to see. Despite the fact that [.
Arsenal's very own BFG, Per Mertesacker, is just seven months from the end of his current contract at the Emirates, and with the arrival of Shkrodan Mustafi, Gabriel and Rob Holding the competition for a place in the team alongside Laurent Koscielny has got a lot harder lately. The injury that has kept the German [.
It is not just the assists that our German international playmaker provides that make him such a big player for Arsenal, but the all round quality of Mesut Ozil to see a pass and play it perfectly. he knits together the rest of the team and is often the creative spark that unlocks a determined [...]
I do not want to be too hard on the Arsenal and France international star, especially as I have been a champion of Olivier Giroud against his many critics and doubters pretty much ever since he joined the club from Montpellier a few years ago. I also still feel that the big centre forward has [...]
Recent Arsenal fans may only think about the ding-dong battles with Man United for the League title or the uncanny hold Chelski has had over us until this season, but it has always been a long held tradition for the Gunners to hate Tottenham more than any other team. Witness Jack Wilshere's rant on the [.
Arsenal may have had to settle for a last minute winner against Ludgorets on Tuesday, but this weekend's rivals Tottenham were embarrassed by a home defeat against Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, and with their injury list piling up as well, their goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is very worried about the state of the team.
If Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players were looking for any extra encouragement and confidence ahead of the big game against our local rivals on Sunday, they should have a look at Tottenham in action against Bayer Leverkusen. And if they have already seen it they should watch it again, as the spuds looked like [.
I bet Arsene Wenger is mightily relieved that he chose to field as strong an Arsenal team as possible in our Champions League away tie with Ludogorets Razgrad last night. With a crucial north London derby clash with Tottenham in the Premier League this weekend and with the home tie against the Bulgarians finishing 6-0, [.
Reports are emerging from Spain that Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez is under the threat of going to prison for unpaid taxes. The Chilean has been in stupendous form so far this season in anGunners shirt, but is now under investigation for supposed undeclared earnings, which should have been taxed, during his time at Barcelona previously.
The statistics do back up the theory that Arsenal tend to have a tough time of it in the month of November. During the 20 years that we have had Arsene Wenger as our manager the 11th month of the year is the one which has seen the Gunners take the fewest average points per [...]
Arsenal do not have the best defence in the Premier League, in terms of goals conceded at least, with 10 going into our net so far in 10 EPL games. But that is only one more than two of our main title rivals Man City and Chelsea and three fewer than another one Liverpool. So [...]
Even though Arsenal have enjoyed a very good period with a 14 game unbeaten run after a slow start to the current season, it is still very early days and we are still locked in a very tight tangle of teams at the top of the Premier League. The good news about the EPL table, [...]
After Arsenal beat the Bulgarian Champions 6-0 at the Emirates, everyone thought that the return at Ludogrets would be a walk in the park. Arsene Wenger made quite a few changes to the starting line-up and the Gunners were shocked to find themselves 2-0 down after just 15 minutes of the game. Wenger denied that [.
Olivier Giroud has been Arsenal's first choice striker for many seasons now, assuming the role left behind from Van Persie's departure in 2012. The Frenchman however never truly replaced Arsenal's spell of great strikers and as of yet, he is still not hitting the heights required from him. Now, after a lengthy spell out with [.
Well there was as much a feeling of relief as there was of delight for everyone connected with Arsenal last night, after Mesut Ozil popped up with a brilliant late goal against Ludogorets Razgrad to complete a stirring comeback in a match that had seen us shockingly go two goals down in. The three points [.
Mesut Ozil finished off an unbelievable comback by the Gunners against Ludogorets tonight. Arsenal found themselves 2-0 down after just 15 minutes in Bulgaria and were reeling from the shock, but by half time we were back at 2-2 thanks to a facile goal from Granit Xhaka and a trademark header from Olivier Giroud.
So here is the confirmed team for Arsenal away at Ludogerets. It looks like we are going to have two strikers in Sanchez Ospina, Jenkinson, Mustafi, Koscielny, Gibbs, Coquelin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Ozil, Alexis, Giroud
The Arsenal injury list has grown to eight players out of action as Arsene Wenger prepares his team for the away tie against Ludogorets Razgrad in the Champions League, a game we need to win to make sure we keep our place on top of group A ahead of main rivals PSG. Hopefully most of [...]
Arsenal's Carl Jenkinson has only just returned from a long absence due to injury, that's spanned from an issue picked up in the middle stages of last season. Jenkinson was on loan at West Ham before he was sent back to Arsenal for treatment on the injury, that's kept him out for most of 2016. [...]
If Arsenal were to pick the month that they dislike the most, then it must surely be the month of November. It's just over two months into the new season and things are usually looking bright for the Gunners. Then as previous years have shown, a poor November and December has led to a drop [...]
Arsenal welcomed the return of Aaron Ramsey to the side last weekend, with the Welsh midfielder's 13 match absence coming to an end. Ramsey, who was left injured after the Gunner's opening Premier League fixture, finally returned against Sunderland, and made an instant impact by grabbing an assist only minutes later.
The butterfly affect by Toby Leach Although reports have been doing the rounds regarding Ozil's new Arsenal contract for a while now its still no clearer as to what is actually holding it up. I have my theory and I think my fellow Gunners deep down know it too, but it's a bit of a [...]
For a while at the start of quite a few seasons in the Premier League it looked like the Arsenal record of being the only top flight club to go an entire season without losing a league match, in the modern era that is because Preston North End did it well over 100 years ago [...]
Arsenal travel toBulgaria to take on Ludogorets tonight in the fourth Champions League gameweek. The Gunners are in fine form in all competitions currently, and that form has led us joint-top of the Premier League, as well as sitting top of our European group at present. We also beat tonight's rivals 6-0 in the reverse [.
