Liverpool 0-2 Arsenal

Oh, You Beauty... at related • 0 views
Goals:
Podolski 31'
Cazorla 68'

Somehow, that was more demoralizing than the 0-3 loss at West Brom, despite the quality of the opposition and the slightly less embarrassing scoreline.

There were excuses for that first loss, most stemming from the red card. But this script becomes more painful the more we're subjected to the same film.

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott firmly believes that his club has the ability to bounce back and defeat Premier League-chasing Manchester City when the two sides meet at Emirates Stadium this weekend.

The Gunners had been in excellent form until recently when their run of seven-consecutive league victories was abruptly ended by the 2-1 defeat that they suffered at the hands of Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.

Arsenal duo eye historic turn-around

Andre Santos and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have no doubts that their Arsenal side can go from relative anonymity at the beginning of this year to being crowned champions at the end of next season.

Santos and Oxlade-Chamberlain arrived last summer to join a Gunners squad that lost the services of Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri to Manchester City, and former skipper Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona.

In my time writing this column, I don't ever recall such difficulty in thinking up material to fill my remit. It's quite absurd when you think about it, that on the back of one of the team's best runs of form in the last five years, there really is nothing to say. Professional journalists at least have the advantage of being able to stick a microphone under someone's nose and attempt to extract a comment that can be conjured into a morsel of controversy.

Defender: Arsenal signings led to transition

Premiership Talk Blog at related • 1 view

New signings were exactly what Arsenal needed to successfully manage the challenges of the English top flight this season but left-back Kieran Gibbs argues that the arrival of new faces at the Emirates this season also led to a period of transition.

Gibbs, who was immediately chosen as the replacement for Manchester City-bound Gael Clichy last summer, saw his side hammered 8-2 by defending champions Manchester United seven months ago, leading manager Arsene Wenger to spend uncharacteristically on the transfer deadline day.

The North London giants registered their fifth consecutive league win by defeating Newcastle United 2-1 at the Emirates on Monday. It was the fourth straight time that they came back from a position of deficit to claim all three points against their domestic rivals.

Arsenal head into Sunday's FA Cup fourth round clash with Aston Villa on the back of three consecutive league defeats, but they have still been deemed the favourites by many European bookmakers to emerge victorious.

Wenger Unfazed By Fan Criticism

Arsenal Insider at related • 0 views

Arsene Wenger has said that he can take criticism from his own fans as the club heads into the business end of the 2011/12 season.

Last weekend, Arsenal once again lost to bitter rivals Manchester United by a scoreline of 2-1, which was their third consecutive league defeat. Wenger infamously substituted impressive Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with severely out-of-form Andrey Arshavin in the second half of the match.

A year after beating out Manchester United to secure their third League Cup, Liverpool would head back to Wembley for the fourth time in a row with the chance to further add to their trophy case, and this time they would face off against Everton for the honours. It was the first time the two sides met at Wembley, and when all was said and done it marked both the first trophy of manager Joe Fagan's brief time in charge and the end of Liverpool's run of dominance in the league cup.

Thierry Henry has been able to provide a spark for Arsenal in his brief time on loan with the club, but the Gunners may have to look elsewhere for inspiration during their crucial match this weekend.

Henry picked up a calf strain in training, and his status is uncertain for Arsenal's match against Manchester United.

One of my favourite things about football is the extent to which it constantly confounds finite conclusions. We're all guilty of it to varying degrees. Just four weeks ago I used this space to contemplate the upsides of Europa League participation. 6 consecutive league wins later and we find ourselves favourites for third and ahead of Sp*rs – who were effectively 13 points ahead with a 2-0 lead over us just over three weeks ago.

Following consecutive league defeats (both games in which we took the lead) I think we can all agree the need for savage and violent revolution is obvious. A blood thirsty, shrieking gallop to the hills followed by a good fortnight of medieval combat ought to sort it. Because nothing quite says "ambitious football club" like flapping through a wooded area wearing Arsene Wenger's skin as a dress and Peter Hill Wood's nuts for earrings.

Falcao scored twice in the 3-0 victory in Romania in May and could have scored more at the Vicente Calderon as Bilbao continued to struggle without Spain internationals Fernando Llorente and Javi Martinez, who were omitted from the squad again with their futures at the Basque club uncertain.
