Arsenal fans are not used to seeing our players included on the shortlist for the Ballon D'Or award given each year to the player judged to have been the best over the course of a calendar year, so perhaps we should not really be too surprised that no Gunners are on the list again this [...]
Arsenal succumbed to a 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough this weekend, and some people would even say we were lucky with the one point we received. Boro boss Aitor Karanka claimed his side should have won the match, and if it wasn't for Petr Cech's heroics, we most likely would have lost, but the same could [.
If it had not been for the sixth Arsenal goal against Ludogorets last night then it would have been Alexis Sanchez who was my pick for the Man of the Match, as the Chilean was brilliant throughout and score the best goal of the night to set us on our way to victory, but I [...]
Arsene Wenger had been preparing the Arsenal players for a tough test against Ludogorets and it was just as well, as the visitors started well and could have caught us out if we had not been ready for them. We had already seen a couple of big defensive moves from Koscielny and Cazorla in the [...]
Arsene Wenger did not come out and completely confirm the recent Arsenal transfer rumours about the big wage demands of the club's two biggest names Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, with both the German and the Chilean currently in talks over new contracts with the club, but he did seem to suggest in an Evening [.
I nearly gave the Man of the Match from Arsenal's hard fought 3-2 win over Swansea to Mesut Ozil, as the German play maker'sd sweetly struck volley was the best of the goals and Theo Walcott should have had at least a hat-trick, but he was unlucky to hit the woodwork twice towards the end [...]
We do not even know for sure whether or not the Chile international star Alexis Sanchez will be starting for Arsenal against Swansea City tomorrow, as there is always the question of how fresh he will be after a long haul international break and the concern that not giving him time to recover could lead [.
Arsene Wenger will be determined that Arsenal keep up the momentum that we have been building since the slow start to the season which saw the Gunners take just one point from the first two Premier League games. Looking at the fixture list coming up over the next few weeks you would expect Arsenal to [.
In the latest Arsenal team news Arsene Wenger has revealed that, different to what we all expected before going into the international break, the Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey and the French centre forward Olivier Giroud will not be available for the Premier League match against Swansea City this weekend.
Arsenal fans are already well aware of how important the Chilean international star is to Arsenal and any chance we have of winning a trophy and more importantly the title of Premier League champions, as we have seen how much the Gunners suffer when the fantastic forward is out of action or struggling for form.
The second international break of the season is now over and the various Arsenal players involved have all come through it without any more injury problems for Arsene Wenger to worry about, despite some moments of concern about Hector Bellerin and Mesut Ozil. The Arsenal boss is also boosted by the return to fitness of [.
There has definitely been a change in the approach of Arsenal in recent years, with Arsene Wenger responding to the criticism that he was a bit too one dimensional with his tactics and that he had no plan B. The Frenchman and the Gunners adapted and became harder to beat in the big games and [...]
All summer Arsenal fans clamored for Arsene Wenger to sign up a big-name striker to replace Olivier Giroud as the focal point of the Arsenal attack. Instead Wenger decided that he already had the world-class striker than the Arsenal fans wanted, in Alexis Sacchez. And the stats show that Chile international is a much better option than the French international.
The Arsenal and France international forward has not scored a goal at club level so far this season, but that is hardly surprising as the big Frenchman has hardly played. At the start of the season it was because he was not fit after coming back late from the Euro 2016 tournament in which he [...]
You have to feel a little bit sorry for the Arsenal and France striker Olivier Giroud, as not much has been going right for the big fellow of late. Take the Champions League for instance, when he came on and was sent off soon after for a second yellow which replays showed was completely undeserved. [.
We had you, our readers, vote in our polls to help us find the fans favoured starting line-up, but we ended up with a problem. Alexis Sanchez has been voted to take both the striker role, and an attacking midfield role, and unfortunately we only have one of him! The Chilean has been growing into [...
Some Arsenal fans may not really care too much one way or the other about the reasons behind the high quality performances and impressive scoring form that we have seen from the England international star Theo Walcott recently, as long as the 27-year old keeps playing well and putting the ball in the back of [.
Hey Arsenal fans, I would not be so quick to write off our France international centre forward Olivier Giroud if I was you, despite the fact that the big man is yet to start a single game for the Gunners this season. In fact I think Giroud could be set to lead the line when [...]
It was another great team performance from Arsenal, especially in the first half, as we tore Basel apart in the Champions League, with notable attacking contributions from Cazorla, Iwobi, Bellerin, Ozil and Alexis Sanchez along with another great defensive display from Mustafi and Koscielny but the Man of the Match has to go to Theo [.
A brilliant first half saw Arsenal win this home Champions Leagure game against Basel by 2-0 with both goals from Walcott in the first half. We had a host of chances and some very good ones. We could and probably should have scored a lot more but it was still an imprerssive showing and a [...]
This was almost the perfect way for Arsenal to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Arsene Wenger taking over as our manager. It was a brilliant perfoirmance from the players in the sort of style that has become trademark of Arsenal in the Wenger era. Three good goals and a clean sheet to boot to stick [.
We do not yet know if the Arsenal and France international forward Olivier Giroud will be fit enough to start the Premier League clash with Chelsea this weekend, if you even believe that it is this mystery toe problem keeping him out of the side in the first place. If he is fit to play, [...]
After Arsene Wenger finally got the Arsenal chequebook out and spent something like the sort of money we have been hoping he would for years during this summer´s transfer window, Arsenal fans have been a little disappointed and frustrated that we have not seen more of two of those big signings so far this season.
Alexis Sanchez is believed to be a target for Manchester City in January, and having failed to agree terms with Arsenal over a new contract, may be able to force his own exit. The Chilean is claimed to be a target for the Gunners' rivals Man City, who are managed by the player's former boss [...]
After Arsenal had doubled the lead early in the second half and with Hull City down to 10 men the Gunners were on easy street but a Snodgrass penalty conceded by Cech with around 15 minutes left put the result into doubt, until Alexis Sanchez kept a cool head to smash a third after Walcott's [...]
I guess you could see this last week as a positive one for Arsenal. The results have certainly been respectable, with a win over Southampton in the Premier League followed by a potentially vital draw away to Paris Saint-Germain in Europe thanks to a late strike from Alexis Sanchez and some inspired keeping from David [.
We are building a fans favourite XI based on the current Arsenal formation, and we move onto the three behind the favoured striker now. Many of you will no doubt opt to field both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, although the former will be in the voting as a striker also. Unfortunately we don't have [.
After Arsenal survived an early Champions League blow thanks to some last ditch defending, a few moments of magic from the second choice keeper David Ospina and some profligacy in front of goal from Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria, the Paris Saint-Germain fans were left cursing their luck after Alexis Sanchez popped up in [.
Even though Arsene Wenger and everyone at Arsenal Football Club would desperately like the team's two superstars Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil to sign the extensions to their current contracts that are reportedly being talked about, it appears that the manager is also determined to make sure that they are still aware of who the [.
I know that a lot of Arsenal fans will disagree with my choice of Francis Coquelin as our Man of the Match from the away draw with PSG anmd most would probably give it to Ospina for keeping us in the game or Alexis Sanchez for hitting the leveller, but Coquelin for me deserves it. [...]
There's been plenty of debate surrounding the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil because although it was believed the pair may have been considering their futures at the club at the start of the summer, it is now led to be believed that both the Chilean and the German wish to extend their contracts [.
The Arsenal and France international striker Olivier Giroud must have done something to upset the manager, or he must be wondering if he has, because Arsene Wenger has left the big centre forward out of the starting line up once again, meaning Giroud is still waiting for a first start of the season, for the [.
The transfer window has finally closed, and with all our strengthening having been a success this summer, we now look to doing our in-house dealings. Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez were both believed to have held initial talks over new contracts toward the end of the previous season, but nothing was agreed before the campaign [.
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 [...]
