The Arsenal manager spoke to the press today ahead of the trip north to face Sunderland in the Premier League tomorrow, as reported by The Mirror. And I don't think that Arsene Wenger needed to stretch his tactical acumen too far to realise that the home side may well concentrate on their defending after being [.
Chamberlain shouldn't be judged on his performance against Hull City by SE Ozil was out injured, and will be out for a long time. Walcott isn't fit enough to return to first team action just yet. Subsequently, there was no doubt that Alex Oxlade Chamberlain would find himself in Arsenal's starting XI against Hull City, [.
Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been impressing for club and country this season, especially since this injury crisis hit the Gunners, but his Arsenal and England team-mate Jack Wilshere has made it clear that once Theo Walcott is back to full fitness, the Ox will have to be relegated to the bench.
I know that they are not exactly the same sort of player, but the Arsenal pair of Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain do have quite a bit in common and Arsene Wenger has played them both on the left and right flanks, even though the young Englishman is a midfielder while the Chile international is [.
It is vital that Arsene Wenger gets Arsenal off to a winning start when club football gets back underway after this current round of international friendly games and Euro qualifiers are finished. And the Gunners have a great chance to get our season up and running properly because the Premier League game on Saturday is [.
Ozil's absence could bring the best out of the Gunners by SE Mesut Ozil's less-than-acceptable performances in Arsenal colours this season haven't helped the North Londoners' cause one bit. Barring his brilliant display against Aston Villa – in which he scored and assisted a goal, and looked like the player we've come to know – [.
After the shocking way Arsenal were hammered at Stamford Bridge last season, today's Premier League clash with Chelsea is a good chancw to if Arsene Wrenger and the Gunners have learned their lessons and whether we will have any more joy against the big clubs this season. But the Frenchman's starting selection is hampered by [.
You might think that his starting for Arsenal in the Capital One Cup clash with Southampton would mean that our new star Alexis Sanchez might be a doubt for the north London derby with Tottenham on Saturday. But Arsene Wenger is going to have a hard job leaving the Chile international on the bench and [.
What is the one ‘not-so-impressive' attribute of Wenger, as a manager? by SE An Overview Arsene Wenger wouldn't have endured this much of longevity as Arsenal manager had he not been consistent and, magnificent, in his own way. He has instilled an eccentric brand of football, both at Highbury and the Emirates, and is one [.
Arsenal vs Besiktas: Wenger's team selection deserves plaudits by SE An Overview It was one tantalizing tie to overcome for Arsenal, who were hoping to make it to the Group stages of the UEFA Champions League for the 17th year running. The Gunners, more ominously, had lost the core of their squad for last night's [.
This is the biggest game of the season so far for Arsenal, with the winner taking a place at the top table of European club football and the loser getting their midweeks off for the next few months. A 0-0 draw with Besiktas in Turkey leaves the Gunners slight favourites with tonight's match at the [.
It is all about getting into the Champions League for Arsenal now, although hopefully there will be some serious work being done on the transfer front behind the scenes as well. But for the players and fans, it is absolutely vital for the Gunners to beat Besiktas on Wednesday and book our regular place among [.
This is a big game for Arsenal, with last season's away game at Everton being one of those that Arsene Wenger, his players and the fans would like to put behind them as quickly as possible. But with an even more important game against Besiktas in the Champions League on Wednesday, it comes at an [...
Because of the importance of the Champions League to Arsenal, Wenger and the players, the second leg of the play-offs against Besiktas on Wednesday is probably more important than the Premier League away trip to face Everton on Saturday. However, the Gunners have a big problem after our star player was rather harshly sent off [.
There is no doubt that Arsenal are left in a tricky situation after a no score draw with Besiktas in the fiurst leg of the Champions League play-offs. The away goals rule can always come back to haunt you if you don't get one, but most Arsenal fans will be more concerned about us having [...]
Arsenal went in to the first leg of the Champions League play-off against the Turkish side Besiktas knowing that they would be in for a tough and vitally important game. With Slaven Bilic leading the Turks to an excellent victory over the Dutch club Feyenoord in the last round and with the Gunners squad missing [.
The Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain believes that last seasons FA Cup win will be the catalyst for the Gunners to go on and win more trophies, as the team now has the belief (and the new players!) to carry on the "winning momentum". Chamberlain said: "When there's a lot of talk about a team that [.
I am hoping, but not really expecting, for Arsenal to actually win our own tournament, the Emirates Cup, this weekend. As usual there are three good teams coming to fight it out with the Gunners, in Valencia from La Liga in Spain, the Portuguese champions Benfica and one of Arsene Wenger's former clubs AS Monaco [.
Injuries and Arsenal are two words that been synonymous with each other in recent years. And last season reached a whole new level, with the Gunners losing more player days to injury than any other Premier League team. About twice as many as our big rivals, and there is no doubt that it affected Arsenal's [.
It looks like the awful run of luck that Arsenal had with injuries last season has carried over in to the World Cup finals in Brazil, as yet another Gunner has picked up a problem that could jeopardise their role at the tournament. This will surely be a worry to Arsenal fans, not just about [...]
Injuries eh, Arsenal fans? How sick have we become of hearing about Arsenal players picking up knocks, whether it be while playing for club and country, it would be easy to think that lady luck had it in for the Gunners, or that they are made of glass. Recent years r4eveal a catalogue of long [...]
It is always a bit of a balancing act being an Arsenal fan when there is a big internatyional football tournament on during the summer. On the one hand, you are proud of the Arsenal players when they are selected to play for their country and you want them to do well, while on the [...]
The Arsenal boss may not be too happy about this, but it looks like Roy Hodgson is planning to take a risk on the fitness of Gunners midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Following England's undeserved defeat to Italy in the opening group stage game, Hodgson knows that he needs to win, or at the every least to [.
It is great news for England and, obviously, great news for the Arsenal youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. After picking up a knee ligament injury which threatened to wreck the dynamic 20-year old's summer in Brazil, Chamberlain has been hard at work in training, trying desperately to get himself fit and ready to help his country progress [.
I know that not all Arsenal fans are also England fans, despite the fact that the Gunners actually play in the English Premier League. Football is a global enterprise these days, which is clearly highlighted in the comments section of this website and from the amazing pre-season tours that Arsenal go on.
Although Arsenal Football Club will be well represented at the FIFA football extravaganza that is the World Cup finals, the Gunners are a bit thin on the ground when it comes to England. Theo Walcott was already ruled out through injury, of course, but it looks like we might not see too much of Jack [.
We have already heard from one Arsenal player, Per Mertesacker, that he feels that the Germany national side will have to thank Arsene Wenger for the way he has improved the three German Gunners. And it seems that England may have a lot to thank the Frenchman for as well, as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been [.
It was not the best of nights for the two Arsenal players in the England national team. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain played no part whatsoever, and didn't look too chuffed as he watched from the stands. And Jack Wilshere only got on for the last 25 minutes, so should the two young Gunners be worried about their [.
I think Paul Scholes would be happy if not a single Arsenal player featured in the World Cup finals this summer. JUst like Michael Owen, he has ripped into the Gunners this season and seems desperate for his own biased predictions to come true. Since his infamous TV rant, many have pointed out the several [.
It must have been frustrating for quite a few of the Arsenal players this season, with injuries stopping them really getting up a head of steam, but it must be even worse when you can see your dreams of playing in a World Cup finals in Brazil disappearing over the horizon. It happened to poor [...]
Both of Arsenal's England World Cup players found out today a little bit more about how much action they can expect to see in Brazil. The England manager Roy Hodgson has revealed what squad numbers the players will wear at the World Cup and it looks good for Jack Wilshere. Nothing is certain, of course, [.
I still think that there should be three Arsenal players in the England World Cup squad picked by Roy Hodgson. Luke Shaw may have been very impressive as he burst on to the scene with Southampton this season, but Kieran Gibbs has also been brilliant for Arsenal and has more experience, especially at the top [.
The game at Wembley on Saturday could be said to be the most Important that Arsenal have faced in years. Arsene Wenger has guided the Gunners to two major finals since last winning the FA cup in 2005, but we have lost them both for one reason or another, which puts even greater pressure on [...]
Arsene Wenger has just one Premier League game left before the big one. I/m sure that the Frenchman already has a pretty good idea of his Arsenal starting line-up to run out at Wembley and try to finally add to that FA cup the Gunners won in 2005, but there will be some players hoping [...]
It was a sad sign of things to come for Arsenal, when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who had provided the assist for our first goal of the season, was ruled out after just one game and then spent around five months in the treatment room. And if that was disappointing for the team, it was even more [...]
Everyone at Arsenal will certainly have received a boost by getting into the FA cup final with a penalty shootout win over Wigan Athletic, but there is now a Premier League run-in to focus on and the Gunners could really do with another boost from some of our injured players. And we may even get [...
There is good news and bad news for Arsenal as Arsene Wenger and his players attempt to book a place in the FA cup final in just over a month's time. As usual, the Gunners squad is ravaged by injury, but at least two key players will be on from the start against Wigan Athletic [...]
So today is FA Cup semi-final day at Wembley and Arsenal will take on Wigan Athletic, who despite being winners last year, are massive underdogs to the Gunners. Arsenal have all the odds in their favour and on paper you would expect Arsenal to win. However as Wigan have shown, they have defied odds more [.
Arsenal vs Wigan Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ This is it Arsenal fans! Our season has started to fall apart and we need to win against Wigan to prevent one of the most embarrassing collapses in our recent history. Losing is unthinkable. We are going to have to take the initiative tomorrow [.
We all know that youth development at Arsenal is one of the things that Arsene Wenger has focused most of his time on since taking over at the club back in 1996. You wouldn't have known it on Tuesday, though, as the Prof picked a starting line-up for a huge game against West Ham that [...]
