Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest onthe fitness of Arsenal's first team squad members, and is expecting to have a near-full list available for selection. There are doubts over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who had to be taken off against Lincoln last weekend with a hamstring injury, as well as Kieran Gibbs.
This may well have been the easiest choice of an Arsenal Man of the Match for some time, with Alexis Sanchez bagging a hat-trick in the space of 14 second half minutes that sealed the three points and nipped in the bud any hiopes West Ham had of punishing the Gunners for our first half [...]
This was an emphatic and ultimately comfortable 5-1 away win for Arsenal against West Ham that gets the confidence flowing nicely again and keeps us right in the hunt for the Premier League title. It did not always look that way though as even though the Gunners dominated the game we were not clinical and [.
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 [.
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 [.
Of the many Arsenal players that were given a chance to shine by Arsene Wenger in the Gunners' fourth round EFL cup clash with Reading this week, quite a few did themselves and their chances of playing more often the power of good, including Lucas Perez, Carl Jenkinson and Rob Holding, but surely the biggest [.
Just like with Jack Wilshere, the Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be set for a new lease of life in a new position with the three lions. And if it works out it could be good news for the Ox and for Arsenal as well. The new position is the central midfield [...]
If you have not seen the highlights from Arsenal's win away to Nottingham Forest in our first EFL cup game of the season then you can check them out on the Arsenal website or watch the video below to see our summer signing Lucas Perez net his first two goals for the Gunners. With Olivier [...]
Even if Arsene Wenger does respond to the frustration of Arsenal fans and sign another forward before the summer transfer window slams shut, something which I have serious doubts about anyway, it will almost certainly not be done in time to get said player up to speed with the Arsenal team in time to start [.
Of course we always want the best from the Arsenal players, whether they are playing for club or country. Not only does it give us an interest in the international matches not involving our own country, it is interesting to see how each Gunner does with other players around them. When it is your own [.
Despite some great moments for club and country, I think it is fair to say that the Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has largely failed to live up to his early promise and has yet to prove Arsene Wenger right for paying what was at the time a hefty fee for a 17-year [...
Yes it is only pre-season and Arsenal fans will probably not be placing too much importance on anything that happens in these games before the proper business of the Premier League begins in a couple of weeks. The fact that the Gunners also won every match of our last pre-season preparations and then beat Chelsea [.
It has been yet another season of frustration and disappointment at both club and international level for the Arsenal and England star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and there has even been a lot of debate among Arsenal fans about whether he will ever fully deliver on the early potential he showed at Southampton and in flashes as [.
What now for injured Arsenal star? by A.H. The Arsenal and England international midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has had to face the news that he was going to be ruled out for the rest of the season after an injury to the medial ligament in his right knee. The injury news also rules him out of [..
There have been quite a few Arsenal transfer rumours in recent weeks about Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and the likelihood of the England international star leaving Arsenal in the summer for pastures new. West Ham were mentioned as a possible destination for the young player and it was even said that he had been offered to them.
There was not a great deal of fuss from the Arsenal fans last week when the football media started to report that our England international star was going to be one of the current crop of Gunners to be moved out of the club during the coming transfer window. Perhaps it was the fact that [...]
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have not got very happy memories about the last time we tried to do a piece of transfer business with our Premier League rivals Liverpool. They could have just said no to the offer of £40,000,001.00 for their striker Luis Suarez but instead they spread it all over the press [.
This is in the news at the moment because Roy Hodgson has just announced that there is still a chance that Arsenal's Jack Wilshere could still take his place in the England team this summer, despite not having kicked a ball for the Gunners this season. Wilshere's latest forecast is that he will be back [.
Whether the Arsenal transfer rumours about the possible sale at the end of the season of the England international midfield star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are true is anyone's guess. It could all be just the football media putting two and two together to get five or simply conjecture after the latest injury picked up by the [.
The full extent of the injury picked up by the Arsenal and England international midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is yet to be found out, as the 22-year old is due to have further tests today but after the initial assessment of him yesterday it is not looking too promising for the Ox. According to the Daily [.
The big question for Arsenal fans today was about who was going to fill the third forward position for this massive Champions League game against Barcelona, as the team selection of Arsene Wenger for the Hull game away int the FA cup had all but told us what team we would see tonight. And the [...]
With the Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott having been below par for a good few games I was not surprised to see Arsene Wenger leave him out of the Arsenal starting line up for the must win Premier League game away to Bournemouth on Sunday. But judging from the way the season has panned [...]
There were a few notable performances from Arsenal players as the Gunners got back to winning ways in Bournemouth yesterday, with our keeper Petr Cech, the goal scorers Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny all impressing. For me though the outstanding player was Aaron Ramsey who capped a tireless and effective all round [.
After falling to fourth place in the Premier League last weekend, Arsenal have been put under even more pressure after seeing Leicester City stretch their lead at the top with an away win over Man City, while Tottenham also won to move into second spot. So this away clash with AFC Bournemouth really is a [.
The Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may have made almost 30 appearances for the Gunners already this season, but I think it is safe to say that he will not be too pleased with his contribution to the campaign so far, with more of those appearances being from the bench than not and with just seven [.
Because of a minor injury problem to his foot, Arsenal had to face the tough trip to the Britannia Stadium to take on Stoke City without our main man and king of assists Mesut Ozil. And with Arsenal also missing the usual suspects to replace the German international, with Tomas Rosicky, Santi Cazorla and Jack [.
You cannot really argue with the TV pundits' picking of the Arsenal keeper Petr Cech as the man of the match from our no score draw away to Stoke City. After all, the Gunners would have got nothing from the game if it wasn't for him, but there were also some good performances from the [...]
The chance to establish himself in the Arsenal first team was a long time coming for the Costa Rican international forward Joel Campbell, but after a few years going around various leagues in Europe and then sitting on the Arsenal bench in England, the injury situation at the club left the door open.
The Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may not have had a very good season so far and he still needs to show us a lot more to secure more regular first team football, but after an impressive performance in the centre of midfield against Sunderland in the FA cup, I reckon he should [.
Arsene Wenger has made four changes to the Arsenal starting line up that lost at Southampton two days ago and you can hardly blame him after the lacklustre effort we saw from the Gunners at St. Mary's. The only real surprise for me is that our German centre back Per Mertesacker keeps his place after [.
It has certainly been a funny old Premier League season so far and Arsenal fans can thank our lucky stars in some ways. The woes of the reigning champions Chelsea and their obnoxious former manager Jose Mourinho have been particularly enjoyable but the most important thing for Arsenal is that none of our EPL rivals [.
I have not gone a little bit crazy Arsenal fans, even though Theo Walcott would usually get the nod over his England international team mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for a place in the Arsenal starting line-up. There are a few good reasons for Arsene Wenger to give the Ox a start away to Aston Villa. The [.
Assuming that the Arsenal starting line up for the Champions League away clash with Olympiacos tonight includes Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott, there is a very clear decision for the manager to make for that third forward position, Joel Campbell or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Going simply on current form and the performance of each player in [.
First of all the basis of this tactical discussion is the assumption that the Arsenal manager will go with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joel Campbell on either side of Olivier Giroud when Arsenal next play in the Premier League, which is a home game with struggling Sunderland on Saturday. Let´s be honest and admit that the [.
Timing is a hugely important factor in many things and professional sport is no exception. Arsenal have been on the right and wrong side of some examples of this over the years, such as the timing of David Ospina's calanity in the Champions League this season which snatched the momentum form us and gave it [.
Why does it always seem to be that as well as being hit with terrible luck on the injury front on a regular basis, Arsenal often lose a number of players from the same part of the team? So instead of losing a centre back and the back up getting a chance, we lose two [...]
While Arsene Wenger and every Arsenal fan in the world, except perhaps for the embarrassing 'celebrity' motormouth fan Piers Morgan, will be hoping that Aaron Ramsey is fit and ready to return to club action when the Gunners travel to face West Bron after the international break, it could be the exact opposite for Joel [.
I know that it was a bad night at the office all round for Arsene Wenger and the players, as Arsenal limped to an emphatic defeat away to Championship side Sheffield Wednesday. But having lost two of the few first team players taken to Hillsborough for this somewhat unwelcome Capital One Cup clash, I do [.
That was not what Arsenal wanted, never mind the fact that the Capital One Cup is a poor fourth on our list of priority targets, especially this season when it looks like we have a great chance of the Premier League trophy. But as well as accepting that Arsene Wenger was always going to play [...]
Arsenal slipping back to bad old habits? by DN I do not want to be too hard on Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players, because they dug in to win a crucial match against a determined and dangerous Everton team after giving absolutely everything to chase the German champions Bayern Munich down on Tuesday [.
