With eight wins, two draws and just one defeat in the last 11 Premier League games, it is no surprise that Arsenal are clear favourites with the bookmakers to beat Fulham at Craven Cottage tomorrow, so a basic Gunners win will only get you 3/4.

Did Arsene Play For A Draw? by Chunners

There were obvious hints in the Arsenal team selection against Everton that Arsene Wenger wanted to boss the midfield with a high work-rate. Arteta, Ramsey and Wilshere have had really low goal and assists stats this season, so it was likely we wouldn't be getting too much of a goal threat from our midfield.

Right. After what seems like hours, the draw for inaugural UEFA Nations League has finally been completed in Lausanne.

Very unfortunate result for us, and one that we perhaps didn't deserve since we were the only team who showed up today looking for a win. But thats football sometimes.

It wasn't the easiest of wins for us today as Iraklis proved to be quite determined for a goal, but we managed to do enough for a 0-1 win. Of course, this now puts us at 9 wins out of 9 games so far in 2016, a stat which I find reassuring going into four very difficult league games.

Today's win was very much a formality as we almost all but guaranteed our progress to the next round, but I was glad Poyet took the time to give our new signings some playing time.

I'm really anxious to see who we face in the next round though since from here on it will not be easy. So far Iraklis, Atromitos, Tripolis, and Olympiakos have made it through and its likely PAO will make it through as well since they go into their game tomorrow with a 2-1 win from their first away game of the round.

This was the third 1-1 tie for each of them, and meant a draw would decide the quarterfinalist. Guinea won, and will be excited to face Ghana in their next match, where Ghana will undoubtedly be the great favourite.
