Arsene Wenger got sent to the stands during the hugely intense ending of the Arsenal Burnley match yesterday, and is likely to be handed an extended ban for refusing to accept the fourth official's orders.

The Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has been warned by Arsene Wenger for his dismissal in yesterday's Premier League match-up with Burnley.

After watching all of our rivals drop points on Saturday, it was obvious that Arsenal couldn't just think they would have an easy game against Burnley yesterday afternoon, despite the Clarets' dismal away record.

Most Arsenal fans would have been shocked by Arsene Wenger's behaviour towards the end of yesterday's match against Burnley, where he was seen manhandling the 4th official and ignoring his instructions to leave the players tunnel. Let's be honest we usually complain that he just sits in his seat playing with his zipper rather than [.
Despite being the coolest man on the planet and almost giving the Arsenal manager a heart attack with the Padenka penalty to win our EPL game against Burnley in the 98th minute, Alexis Sanchez was just pipped to my Man of the Match award by Shkodran Mustafi who scored the crucial opener and defended with [.
Arsene Wenger has moved to apologise for his terrible behaviour in which he found himself sent to the stands during Arsenal's win over Burnley yesterday.

I have to admit that I am very surprised to see that the Arsenal team to face Burnley in the Premier League today will not include any of the three Gunners who Arsene Wenger revealed earlier in the week were available again after their respective injury problems. Whether the boss is worried about their fitness [.
Arsenal have enjoyed all of Saturday's Premier League results, and go into Sunday's match as huge favourites to grab all three points, but something feels too good to be true...

Last season, Arsenal had Olivier Giroud as our main striker, with his main competitor Danny Welbeck out injured for most of the year, and the dismal failure of an experiment of moving Theo Walcott into the centre.

Arsenal were in fine form when they faced Burnley earlier in the season, but the Clarets worked hard and kept us out until the very last minute of the game. Now, at the Emirates tomorrow, we must not let that happen again. Arsene Wenger has stated that the next four months are the 'moment of [...]

On paper Arsenal have a very easy task to beat Burnley at the Emirates tomorrow, considering that our opponents simply cannot get a result away from Turf Moor this season, but we have another good reason to expect a win in the form of Shkodran Mustafi.

I am sure that I was not the only Arsenal fan left scratching my head and wondering whether Arsene Wenger had lost his when the Frenchman decided to give the captain's armband to our German defender Per Mertesacker in the summer.

Just a week ago the main theme in the football media on the contract situations of the two Arsenal stars was being portrayed almost entirely as negative and the general consensus was that both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil would refuse the new deals being offered to them by the club. That could still be [.
Per Mertesacker is claimed to be in line for a new contractat present, but what role will he have to play for Arsenal next season? The German international is yet to play a single match this term, having fallen foul of injury in pre-season, and is only nearing a return to action in the coming [...]

The 20 year-old started in last night's Premier League 2match away to the Saints, [.
Crystal Palace boss Sam Allardyce has confirmed that a deal is in place for Carl Jenkinson to join him from Arsenal. TheGunners defender has fallen down the pecking order in recent seasons, and his future in North-London looked over when coming under severe scrutiny from fans after a bad display, and he has failed to [.
Because of the long drawn out recent illness of the Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil, Arsene Wenger has a big problem about how to replace such an important and integral member of the team. This problem was made a lot more difficult due to the injury and fitness problems keeping out Aaron Ramsey [.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has taken a jibe at Chelsea's current situation regarding Diego Costa. The Gunners boss was askedabout Alexis Sanchez's attitude to being substituted during the weekend's 4-0 win over Swansea, where he did his signature sulking to the decision to remove him from the pitch.
Normally it is Arsenal who are put at a disadvantage by the way that the football fixture list is worked out, as we are always involved in the Champions League and also tend to get through at least a few rounds of the two domestic cup competitions. But for once the Gunners have been a [...]
If Arsenal Football club and our record on the return dates of players on the injury list being put back over and over again is to go by, then there is a huge chance that we will not be seeing the Spanish international midfield star kicking a ball in anger again for the Gunners this [...]
Danny Murphy has moved to claim that Arsenal arenothing special without the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil in the side. The German international returned to action against Swansea City on Saturday having been sidelined since New Years Day with an illness, and played a key role in the 4-0 demolition in Wales.
Today's transfer rumour for Arsenal comes from a league Arsene Wenger is famous for purchasing players from, Ligue 1. However the player on his radar this time around isn't some young prodigy, but instead a striker considered by many to be a world class talent. PSG's Edison Cavani has been linked with the Gunners for [.
Earlier in the week it was reported that Wojciech Szczesny was supposedly closing in on a permanent deal with his current club AS Roma. The Italian side were reportedly considering making Arsenal a £15 million offer they simply couldn't refuse, in order to keep the Polish shotstopper beyond his current season long loan.
It is being reported today that the new Man City manager Pep Guardiola thinks that his team are now effectively out of the title race after losing to Everton yesterday. The Cityzens are 10 points behind Chelsea, whereas Arsenal are just 2 points above them in 4th spot. Guardiola may have given up (and it [.
Look Arsenal fans, there will be a hell of a lot more work to be done even if things go perfectly for us over the next couple of weeks, but I think we can pretty much forget about the season being a success if it all goes wrong. Depending on circumstances the Gunners could be [...]
While there was some good news for Arsenal fans this weekend in the Premier League, as Man United and Liverpool provided the draw that we wanted as well as a cracking game and Everton gave us a late christmas present by hammering Man City, it was not all good for the Gunners. We should be [...]
Arsenal's Mesut Ozil has been crowned the German Player of the Year for 2016,but is currently being overshadowed by his contract situation. The 28 year-old picked up the award for best German Player of 2016 this week, his fifth time winning the award of the last six seasons, beating 2014 winner Toni Kroos to the [.
It was good to see Arsenal looking ruthless and to go for the jugular away to Swansea City in the second half, leading to a perhaps flattering scoreline of 4-0, because a few times this season we have taken the lead only to take our foot off the gas. Sometimes you get away with that [...]
Arsenalwere this weekclaimed to have had a bid turned down for Torino's Andrea Belotti, and now Chinese side Tianjin Quanjian are supposedly weighing in with a huge offer. The Italian has been in fine form this season, scoring 15 goals in his 20 appearances in all competitions thus far, and has supposedly become of interest [.
Arsenal were happy to announce this week that three big players have signed new contract extensions to keep them at the club for the next few years, and Arsenal fans were happy to hear that the French trio of our best centre back Laurent Koscielny, the combative midfield warrior Francis Coquelin and the man of [.
Considering their position in the table, Paul Clement's Swansea side looked confident and stylish at the start of yesterday's game against Arsenal, and for the first half an hour they looked like they could take something from the game, until Olivier Giroud got his customary goal a game to give the Gunners a half-time lead.
I was probably going to give the young Arsenal and Nigeria forward the nod for our Man of the Match from the comfortable away win over Swansea City anyway, but when I heard that Alex Iwobi was not going to get the goal glory for either of his deflected strikes it made my mind up, [...]
There does not seem to be quite so much animosity between the polarized Arsenal fans so far this season, but that could just be because the Gunners have been winning more games than we have been losing. But there are still a fair number of WengerOut supporters around, but there have been a few more [.
It would have been a big help to Arsenal and our chances of winning the Premier League this season if Leicester City had managed to beat Chelsea or at least stop the league leaders from adding another three points to their total, especially after the setback of a defeat last week and the loss of [...
Arsenal fans are not likely to hear the truth of the matter and the reason behind the now regular shows of anger and frustration from Alexis Sanchez anytime soon. I expect that Arsene Wenger will just brush it off and talk about how the Chilean international is a winner who just wants to play and [..
Well after the Arsenal players did their bit by keeping up the pressure on our Premier League rivals with a good away win at Swansea City today, we can just sit back and hope that the three points prove extra useful with some of the clubs around us dropping points. Tomorrow we Arsenal fans will [...]
I would not say that Arsenal started this game away to Swansea City with all guns blazing, but it was at least a lot better than the awful starts we made in the two previous games and we did match the early intensity of the home side without really getting our fluent and threatening football [...]
Arsenal take a 1-0 lead into the break thanks to Olivier Giroud, but I cant help but want to thank MikeJones. Swansea have come into this game fired up, and had much the better chances in the opening 45, and will be frustrated to have come into the interval a goal down. Alexis Sanchez managed [...]
It looks like Arsenal's north London rivals Tottenham are going to win again as they are currently 2-0 up at home to West Brom and the Gunners must follow suit in our away game with Swansea City to keep up with the spuds and keep in touch with the current league leaders Chelsea. Thankfully for [...]
With Olivier Giroud enjoying his most effective season in front of goal since he signed for Arsenal years ago and still being the second choice at centre forward to the excellent Alexis Sanchez, and with the Gunners having more forward options than ever with Alex Iwobi improving, Lucas Perez settling in and both Theo Walcott [.
As long as the prognosis on the injury problem to the Arsenal and Spain international star is right and we have Hector Bellerin back in action again for the match next weekend then I think his absence should not turn out to be a problem for Arsenal in the grand scheme of things. Arsenal have [...]
At the halfway point of the season, Arsenal are in their usual position of battling for the Champions League places, while Swansea are at the opposite end of the table (as usual) in a relegation dogfight. But in the recent history of this fixture, these facts mean absolutely nothing on the day, and the Swans [.
Paul Clement may have just arrived in the Premiership as Swansea's third manager this season, but considering that he has come straight from the Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich who are the Gunners next opponents in the Champions League he had already been involved in working out how to get the better of Arsene [.
Arsenal are playing Swansea, who are second bottom of the Premier League at this moment, and everyone in the world (or at least 99 out of every 100) would be predicting 3 points for the Gunners today, but we all know that things are never so cut and dried in the Premier League. Swansea fans [...]
Arsenal fans will be hoping from a look at this weekend's fixture list in the Premier League that it could be a good few days for the Gunners in our pursuit of the title, as many of our big rivals for the EPL trophy have matches that look harder on paper than our trip to [...]
While there is certainly some good news for Arsenal on the injury front, with the return of Danny Welbeck after a long spell on the sidelines as well as Arsene Wenger being able to call upon the likes of Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny, it is not all good for the Gunners as we prepare [...]
To be fair to Arsene Wenger, he has always tried to do things in the right way, or at least what he sees as the right way, while being in charge of Arsenal. And in this cutthroat world that modern football has become when commercial deals and TV revenue seem to be a lot more [...]
Before I go on to report the ins and outs of the current injury situation at Arsenal Football Club, I would just like to remind you about how our club is having it much worse than the other clubs fighting with us for the Premier League title and any other trophy we are hoping to [...]

Olivier Giroud, Francis Coquelin and Laurent Koscielny all sat down to put pen to paper yesterday morning and the latter seems extremely happy with the deal. Laurent Koscielny has been a loyal member [.
Carl Jenkinson is the subject of numerous offers to leave Arsenal currently, but what should wedo? The defender broke into the first-team back in 2012, but has fallenway back in the pecking order, and now is well behind Hector Bellerin in the fight for a starting spot. Mathieu Debuchyis also in the squad currently, but [.
January is not expected to be a busy month of transfers for Arsenal, but that has not stopped the rumours from circulating. Arsene Wenger has played down the hopes of us bringing in any new players, buthe may well have just been trying to soften the blow of not landing any of his targets, instead [.
Why no further progress will be made and there will be no more titles under Wenger by Oliver Adler We have arrived at that point in the season where the vibe of our season has gone from being extremely positive to rather negative after poor results against Everton and Manchester City. We are currently 8 [.
Arsenal are being linked with both Alvaro Morata and Andrea Belotti at present, but which would be better for Arsenal? Former GunnerPaul Mariner has spoken highly of the Italian, who is currently in a amazing run of form in front of goal scoring 15 goals in his 20 Torino appearances thus far, including the opening [.
Arsenal fans will be eagerly awaiting further transfer news about any more incoming players to the club, with just young left back Cohen Bramell the only player through the doors so far this January. But it is instead two defenders which now seem to be on their way out of the club, is what is [...]

While you will find a lot of Arsenal fans ready to bemoan our fate, with the main complaint being that we do not match the ambition and spending power of our big Premier League rivals to really compete for the EPL title and the Champions League trophy, a new report by UEFA shows that Arsenal [...]
West Ham midfielder Dimitri Payet has reportedly told West Ham manager Slaven Bilic that he wants out of the Hammers set up and a move to Arsenal could be on the cards! West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has today revealed to the press that he has a major transfer situation on his hands at West [...]
There will be a lot more Arsenal transfer rumours for us Gooners to wade through over the coming weeks, until the winter transfer window shuts down at the end of the month, and it is anyone's guess which of them will be true, close to the truth or downright fabrication. I sincerely hope that one [...
This season (so far) Petr Cech has only played in the Premier League games for Arsenal, with Emilio Martinez getting the League Cup games and David Ospina allocated both the Champions League and the FA Cup. Cech is the record holder for the most clean sheets in the history of the Premier League, but this [.
Arsenal are one of a number of clubs in the Premier League that are said to be on alert after the French champions PSG made it known that two of their first team stars would be allowed to move on from the Parc Des Princes in the current winter transfer window. The two players in [...]
Wojciech Szczesny is a player that won't be easily forgotten about amongst Arsenal fans, because even though his performances may not have that magical feeling to them, his off the field antics and hatred of Spurs is something that will live long in the memory. Despite having last appeared for the club in 2015, many [.
The Arsenal and France international star Olivier Giroud may have been something of a bit part player for the Gunners so far this season, with just three Premier League starts up until now, but he has been having a big impact from the subs bench and seems now to have forced his way back into [...]
The transfer window has been open for almost two weeks and so far Arsenal have just one non league player Cohen Bramall to praise. It's not the best of starts for Arsenal in the transfer window, but can we really expect much more from Arsene Wenger. One player that is supposedly a target for Le [...]
We Arsenal fans have to be honest with ourselves that the recent rumours about our contract talks with Alexis Sanchez have been decidedly un-positive. Whether it is true that the Chilean is demanding 300,000 a week to persuade him to sign may or may not be true, but Alexis himself has said many times that [.
It is going to be very difficult for Arsene Wenger to now leave the France international star out of the Arsenal starting line-up, as Olivier Giroud scored a vital winner in the FA cup clash at Preston North End after setting up the first two and scoring the third in that unlikely comeback in the [..
When it comes to Mesut Ozil and Arsenal, I think many will be becoming tired of hearing how the club are desperately trying to tie him down to a new deal, but that he's still sitting on the fence about committing his future. In my opinion I think Ozil is truly committed to the club, [...]
While Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans were left cursing our luck after the draw for the knockout phase of the Champions League, we were not all that surprised to get the German champions Bayern Munich despite winning our group because that is the way that things tend to go for the Gunners. And as [.
Not one Arsenal player made the final XI for the best team of 2016 of FIFPro, which is voted for by all the professional footballers in the world. In fact there was not one player currently playing in the English Premier League included in the Team of the Year, but there were quite a few [...]
Just like in the last round of Premier League games, Arsenal fans know that at least one of our main rivals for the title will be dropping points. Last time the Gunners did not make the most of the slips by Chelsea and Liverpool as we only just managed to rescue a point at Bournemouth. [...]
Whilst many Gooners will be hoping to hear transfer news that involves players joining the club, one of today's rumours involves a player's exit from the Emirates! Gedion Zelalem is a player that's slowly becoming a forgotten man, despite many years of promise at Arsenal. But now it seems that a move to Borussia Dortmund [.
Arsenal are yet to tie down Alexis Sánchez and Mesut Özil to new contracts despite their current deals both expiring in 2018. Stats released today by daily Fantasy Football game Oulala.com have revealed which player the club must keep hold of, if it was a choice between the two. While Özil is reported to be [.
Back in 2011 when Toral and Bellerin joined Arsenal from Barcelona, it was Toral that Arsenal held the most interest in! The Spanish pair were on Arsene Wenger's radar but Bellerin was supposedly an add on to the Toral deal which he held the much more interest in. Now however five years down the line, [.
There have been a few games recently in which Arsenal seemed to take an age to get going. While you could sort of understand if the players flagged towards the end of a match after all the midweek European matches and then the busy festive period, that does not explain why the Gunners were so [...]
Paul Merson has claimed that Arsenal are more interested in finishing in fourth place, when reliving the 3-3 comeback against Bournemouth. The former midfielder played for the Gunners for 12 years between 1985 and 1997 and is sometimes described as an 'Arsenal Legend', but he seems to do nothing but talk badly about our club [.
