It was very worrying for Arsenal fans to see three more players added to the injury list in the last couple of games. The fact that two of them, Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal, were both left backs was even worse, especially as Thomas Vermaelen, who can play there as well as in the centre, [...]
I'm sure I don't need to remind you that Arsenal have had one or two problems with players getting injured this season.

What an unbelievable start by Arsenal. Arsene Wenger had surprised many by giving Yaya Sanogo just his second start. Along with a rampant Jack Wilshere and Oxlade-Chamberlain, the youngster inspired the Gunners and we really got Bayern on the back foot. When Ozil was fouled in the box in the 8th minute, the Emirates was [.

If you believe what you read in the newspapers and the comments sections of football websites, Arsenal are absolutely desperately in need of a new striker during this January transfer window.

With Arsenal 1-0 up away to Newcastle and facing concerted pressure from Alan Pardew's side, the decision to take off your left back Kieran Gibbs may have seemed a little strange to the fans.

Should Monreal feature vs Swansea? by Ash It's not the first time I've spoken about Nacho Monreal this season, having mentioned his future at the club in just the last week, however such the extent of news as well as conversation surrounding the Spanish man, I think it's appropriate that we tackle his situation once [.

Monreal could be leaving the Gunners in the near future! by Ash Nacho Monreal has become a fan favourite since joining Arsenal last January, although I'm not entirely sure whether it's because of his genuine footballing ability or if it's because his first name recollects a tasty Emirates halftime treat, but whatever the reason, there [.

Does the defence still need to be improved? by Ash A big factor or perhaps falter around Arsenal has always been the club's defensive strategy.

Mertesacker still concerned about Arsenal's defence! by Ash So far this season one of the main reasons behind Arsenal's impressive form is because the team has worked massively on the defensive part of the game. Although a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season seemed to prove this wrong with [.
The first game for Arsenal after the international break seems ay first look to be a nice, easy home game againsy the struggling Norwich City of Chris Hughton, but it would be foolish for the Gunners to take this too lightly. To be fair to Arsenal, they have shown a great consistency and desire to [.
He may have had to play second fiddle in the Arsenal team to Kieran Gibbs so far this season, but the Spanish international left back Nacho Monreal has no regrets about his move to the Emirates on the last day of last season's January transfer window.

Hi Gooners. Arsenal never really looked threatening last night at all. Again, it took us most of the first half to get stuck in.

Jenkinson isn't as bad as everyone makes out! by Ash Since Carl Jenkinson joined Arsenal back in 2011, the right sided defender has endured a relatively tough time at the club.
