It was not as comfortable for the Arsenal players and us fans as it looked like being at halftime, but the Gunners did manage to get a vital first victory of the season in the Premier League and that is what really counts as we now head into the international break with some confidence restored. [...
Even though he is widely recognised as one of the best attacking options that Arsenal have in our squad, we have rarely seen the Chile international Alexis Sanchez in the key centre forward position. Needs must, of course, so Arsene Wenger felt he had to give him a go through the middle against Liverpool last [.
I don't think I am taking too much for granted when I assume that two of the Arsenal front three that starts our first EPL game of the season against Liverpool will be Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott, as the Chilean is our star performer and most likely game winner in the absence of Mesut [...]
It does not take a genius to work out that Arsenal would be better off if Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey were in the starting line-up when we kick off the new Premier League campaign with a home game against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side a week on Sunday. Both the Wales international midfielder and the [.
It is not set in stone that the Arsenal captain has to be one of the players who is likely to be one of the regular first team starters. Our last two club captains, Mikel Arteta and Thomas Vermaelen, spent large parts of their periods of captaincy either on the bench or in the treatment [...]
There is still a lot of time for Arsene Wenger to add more players to the Arsenal squad, with well over a month of the summer transfer window still left to run, but with Granit Xhaka and the young defender Rob Holding the only new players available to the Gunners and just three weeks to [...]
It has not been confirmed officially by Arsenal Football Club yet, but it is being reported that Arsene Wenger has finally made the choice about who to replace the departed Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta as our club captain. According to The Sun and other football sites the armband has been offered to our giant German [.
Arsenal do not even play the first match of this pre-season until next Friday when we face Lens in France, but Arsene Wenger is already facing something of a crisis in terms of his squad. No surprise there then. The Frenchman may well be hoping that the next few weeks prove that the likes of [...]
Arsenal fans will have to wait and see whether or not the Gunners that went the furthest at the Euro 2016 tournament will be match fit and ready to play for Arsenal in the opening game of the Premier League season at home to Liverpool, especially Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud who went all the [.
It must have been a massive blow to the Arsenal and Colombia keeper David Ospina this week when after a fantastic Copa America tournament so far, they started the semi-final against Chile so poorly that they allowed Alexis Sanchez and his team mates to grab an early two goal lead from which they could never [.
Not only are there two players from the current Arsenal side on opposing sides in the Copa America semi-final between Colombia and Chile at the Soldier Field stadium in Illinois, but because of their respective playing positions we will see the Colombian number one David Ospina in direct competition with his Arsenal team mate Alexis [.
So for the second year in a row Arsenal are going to have a representative in the Copa America Final, but will it be our attacking genius Alexis Sanchez again, or will it be the rock-between-the-sticks David Ospina? Alexis scored once and gave two assists in Chile's 7-0 demolition of Mexico last night with Eduardo [.
It was a great night for Olivier Giroud and France after a spectacular opening ceremony in Paris. Giroud was chosen to lead the attack ahead of Man United's Martial, and had the honour of kicking the first ball of the Championship. The atmosphere was electric from the kickoff but Romania came at them and nearly [.
Ex Arsenal star worried about Alexis! The Alexis Sanchez saga is a growing concern which could end up being a big issue if it turns out to be true. Alexis was rumoured to be unhappy at the club at the end of the season, disappointed that the Gunners were unable to challenge for the Premier [...]
This is a little bonus that has been sent to us by Arsenal Media. It's a nice little compilation of every single one of Mesut Ozil's assists in his (nearly) record-breaking season. Its lucky its not ALL of the chances he created or you would be watching the video all night! Enjoy!
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is claimed to have set his sights on signing Alexis Sanchez this summer. The Spanish boss is set to take over from Manuel Pellegrini this summer, with only the DFP Pokal final against Borussia Dortmund left to play out with his current side Bayern Munich. Guardiolawas announced as taking over [.
You can feel the disappointment from most Arsenal fans that we didn't win this years Premier League title, but there is no doubt that there has been many highs and lows over the campaign. There has also been some extremely entertaining games, Olympiakos away anyone? Or Man United at home?, and some desperately depressing for [.
I was torn between the two Arsenal goal scorers for who would be my Man of the Match from the hard fought win away to Man City yesterday, and I plumped for Olivier Giroud over Alexis Sanchez mainly because the Frenchman's performance was more unexpected after the struggles he has had since the turn of [.
Well it was far from Arsenal at our best but at this crucial point of the season it is points and results that matter and somehow Arsenal managed to hold off a determined and dominant Man City to claim the point that all but secures a third placed finish and a Champions League place. With [...]
Ozil staying at Arsenal by A.H. Arsenal and Germany International playmaker Mesut Ozil has broken some news on his future that will surely warm the hearts of many Gunners fans. The brilliant attacking midfielder has now stated that he has no intentions of leaving North London. In a season that has seen Ozil have his [.
Arsenal face relegation-threatened Norwich City at the Emirates tomorrow as we continue our fight to remain in the Champions League places. The Canaries are fighting for their lives so it will certainly not be easy, but, on the bright side, Arsene Wenger will have a full squad available for selection for the first time this [.
At the same time that we are hearing from the Arsenal and Spain star Santi Cazorla some hints that he might be going back to Spain's La Liga to play for his former club Villarreal at some point, there are the reports that the Gunners have not yet managed to persuade our two best players [...]
I don't know if you saw it earlier this month Arsenal fans, but the details of the Brazil international star Neymar's contract with La Liga giants Barcelona were leaked and although the fantastic forward cost the Catalan club a lot of money to sign him from previous club Santos in Brazil, his wages are surprisingly [.
It might seem a bit odd to pick the Arsenal keeper as the Man of the Match in a game in which the Gunners' biggest disappointment was not making the most of the chances we created but if it had not been for the agility and ability of Petr Cech we could have come away [...]
A positive and optimistic view of Arsenal, the current campaign and the chances of Arsenal winning the Premier League title in next season might not carry as much weight when it comes from one of players in the Arsenal squad, but the reason suggested by Per Mertesacker for the struggles of the Gunners this season [.
Hopefully this win for Arsenal against West Bromwich Albion will settle the nerves of the Arsenal players and allow us to play to our usual level for the rest of the season. If we do that then we should have no problem finishing in the top four and hopefully in the top three to avoid [...]
Things just refuse to get better for Arsenal and the rub of the green stays determined to go against us as the Gunners failed to win yet again after taking the lead and dominating the game against the visitors Crystal Palace. The fact that their equalising goal late in the second half came as a [...]
Carlo Ancelotti is highly expected to be the next manager of Bayern Munich when Pep Guardiola moves to Manchester City next season, and of course there are many rumours flying around as to which will be the next big signings that the Italian would want to add to his team for next season. According to [.
West Ham v Arsenal Player Ratings Now that I have recovered enough from the disappointment of Arsenal only managing to take a point from West Ham after being in cruise control I reckon I can rate the Arsenal players without dishing out some zeroes. And there were some good performances from the likes of Koscielny, [.
Arsenal started this latest must win game away to West Ham very well and for 40 minutes we looked in control. Our forwards and creative players were fluent and after we got a bit of luck with an early goal for the home side incorrectly ruled out for offside the Gunners took full advantage with [..
There is still plenty of time and lots that could go wrong for Arsenal in this topsy-turvy and hard to get a grip on Premier League season. For instance, all that Leicester City need to do is not to lose two games and draw another of their six remaining matches and the Gunners can do [...]
The post Signs the tide has (finally) turned in Arsenal's favour?
Okay Arsenal fans, hands up who thinks that the name of Olivier Giroud is going to be one of the two Arsenal strikers mentioned in the headline of this article? Although I am going to mention the big man, you might be surprised to hear that he is not among the Premier League's most wasteful [...]
You could point the finger at various issues and incidents for Arsenal over the last eight months and argue that this was the the main factor in our failure to take advantage of the struggles of the likes of Chelsea and Man City and cruise to the Premier League title. Just a few are; the [...]
The post Striker reveals secret behind Arsenal goal drought!
It is bad enough for Arsenal fans when there is a transfer window open and we have to wait and wait without the club spending money while Arsene Wenger gives a gallic shrug of the shoulders and tells us that he really is working hard but there is just nobody out there, except that all [...]
The post Top Arsenal stars' contract talks forcing Wenger into transfers?
If Arsenal are to finish the season strongly and keep the pressure on Leicester and Tottenham while keeping the teams below us at bay and ensuring a place in the Champions League next season, we will need the creative and attacking players in the side to keep up the sort of performances that have seen [.
There is no doubt that Arsenal have bounced back from the slump in form that may well have been the final nail in the coffin of our Premier League title hopes for another year. And there is a theory that the reason the Gunners have played better since the defeats by Manchester United and Swansea [.
Arsenal can only hope that the two teams above us in the Premier League table drop start to drop some points but there is not a lot we can do to affect that. The only thing that Arsenal can do is focus on our own performances and results and hope the pressure makes it harder [...]
The post Arsenal v Watford review Perfect win puts pressure on title rivals appeared first on Just Arsenal News.
There was some good news for Arsenal from the current international break, most notably from the fact that no more injury problems have cropped up to affect the first team players available to Arsene Wenger for the rest of the Premier League matches. However, the final round of international games have not done anything to [.
There have been a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours about the possible departure from the Emirates of key players such as Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil as well the manager Arsene Wenger, which is not really surprising when you consider the pressure and the protests from the Arsenal fans about our recent struggles on [.
