Aston Villa 0 – 3 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 7 He didn't have much to do all game except for a very smart save in the first half. Chambers – 7.5 I felt he was pretty good today and he's so composed on the ball. If only we'd brought in another centre [...]
Well it was a much better start from Arsenal. As expected, Aston Villa started with a high tempo and tried to put us under serious pressure, which paid such dividends for Borussia Dortmund in the week. But the Arsenal players did not crumble under it this time and managed to pass and play our way [..
It is never nice to lose a game of football, and Arsenal fans are desperate for the Gunners not to lose this one today at Aston Villa. But the manner of a defeat, or a disappointing draw, is often as important to the fans. If you play badly and win, nobody really cares and people [...]
Aston Villa vs Arsenal Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ Arsenal have had a very rough start to the season, with only one win in the league and being completely outclassed by Dortmund on Tuesday. The fans are looking for a response by the players and Villa away is a good opportunity regardless [.
Is Dortmund an ‘Aston Villa' Awakening for Arsenal? by NikkoGunners Borrusia Dortmund did not just score two goals against Arsenal. They out-played, out-thought, out-shot, out-possesed and out-everything Arsenal on that Tuesday night. The only consolation that night was that there was no winner in the other match between Monaco and Galatasaray.
Arsene Wenger takes his battered and beleagured Arsenal team to Birmingham on Saturday for the Premier League clash with Aston Villa. And after what happened in Germany against Borussia Dortmund, on top of a pretty average start to the season, this game has taken on great importance. I have seen people suggesting that the change [.
Arsenal played Dortmund away on Matchday 1 of this season's Champions League, looking to pick up a point or three, after drawing three successive games in the Premier League. The Gunners, however, struggled to live up to the high pressing and high tempo game plan from their German opponents and, had it not been for [.
The next two days could turn out to be the most important of the season for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger. A humbling and humiliating Champions League defeat by Borussia Dortmund on the back of a stuttering start to the Premier League season has left us teetering on the brink of disaster. Morale and self belief [.
With Olivier Giroud being out of action for Arsenal for the next few months, the new boy Danny Welbeck should get plenty of chances and lots of time to settle in with his new club and team mates, and his new role playing down the middle. But whereas some signings, especially strikers, are under pressure [.
There was a time when the mention of Aaron Ramsey's name alone could crash a plane; his form was that bad. He lost the support of many fans in whose opinion he was, in the words of Piers Morgan, "a complete and utter liability". Ramsey wasn't actually a bad player, he was one of the [...]
Arsenal need to stick with Ozil by Sam P I am not going to sit here and tell you that Mesut Ozil has not been a bit disappointing for Arsenal at times, or that his performance against Man City at the Emirates on Saturday was another one of those frustrating days for the fans. But [...]
Maybe, just maybe, people will start to realise that they should get a new target. Unlikely though, because Arsenal are so easy and we do seem to be the target of choice for the media muppets. And I know that plenty of Arsenal fans have been on the back of Jack Wilshere as well, just [...]
There is some very good news on the team front for Arsenal fans today, but it does not concern anyone on the Gunners' team sheet. It is the fact that our opponents Man City are without their talisman and best player Yaya Toure. And of course the new boy Danny Welbeck gets his debut at [...]

The Arsenal and Wales star Aaron Ramsey has seen his country fail miserably every time they try to qualify for a big international tournament, but ahead of their opening Euro 2016 clash with the mighty Andorra, Rambo is desperate to emulate his German colleagues by helping Wales to the Finals this time around.
New Season Tactics and Lineup by HA Dear Gooners, Good day. The transfer window is shut. Arsenal had a good but not great window. Our playing style suits 4-2-3-1 most but for playing 4 defenders in every match for 55 odd games a season we needed 1 or 2 more defenders. Last year, there were [...]
What will be Arsenal's biggest challenge from now till the end of the season? by SE Arsenal, after enjoying a decent start to their campaign, will want to start producing results once the ongoing international break culminates.

Wenger has to get the best out of Ozil – but how? by SE The significance of Ozil firing on all cylinders for Arsenal just can't be stated enough. Yes, with the acquisition of Sanchez this season, the German playmaker might not have the pressure of performing in every game he starts for Arsenal; but [.
After this short international break, the season comes back with a bang for Arsenal. Next Saturday sees the Gunners host the Premier League holders Man City at the Emirates and then we fly off to Germany for the first Champions League group game with Borussia Dortmund.

Who should partner Ramsey in that advanced midfield role – Cazorla, Wilshere or Ozil? by SE In what has been a relatively busy summer at Arsenal, with Wenger bringing in the kind of personnel who he deems is ‘appropriate' to his plans, the system that he would have to play has been of equal speculation [.

Look Arsenal fans, before you start slating me for being anti-Wilshere, I am actually one of the writers on here that have been supportive of the young midfielder over the last year. And I have been really pleased to see the real Jack Wilshere start to appear on the pitch again recently. I still think [.
Champions league playoff tie Arsenal vs Besiktas: What could be the possible changes in Arsenal's lineup from Everton game? by SE Arsenal welcome Besiktas to the Emirates tomorrow night, as both sides have different proposition in front of them, albeit with the same ambition.

What kind of an effect will Ramsey's suspension have on Arsenal?by SE The Welshman getting a one-match ban for his transgression against Besiktas is something of a blow for the North Londoners, who now have a difficult task on their hands if they are to qualify for the Group Stage of Europe's elite competition.
This was far from being a perfect performance from Arsenal away to Everton. Ramsey and Chamberlain forgot their shooting boots, Mertesacker looked well off the pace, Ozil should have had his sunglasses on and the Gunners just could not quite click. Dead and buried with 10 minutes to go though, Arsenal showed some real character [.
With the midweek game against Besiktas in mind and some of the Arsenal squad still to get up to speed, Arsene Wenger opted for a bit of an experimental selection for the away game with Everton. And with last season's naive performance at Goodison still fresh in the memory, the Gunners were determined to be [.
I wrote a piece on Arsenal and Jack Wilshere the other day, my point being that the 22-year old midfielder was showing signs of getting back to the form that made him such a sensation before his fledgling career was interrupted and nearly ruined by a series of long term and niggling injuries. But I [.
The subject of whether Arsenal should have tried to use the first refusal option to buy back the former club captain Cesc Fabregas was always going to come up after the Spanish midfielder joined our Premier League rivals Chelsea. And once Fabregas put in an impressive display in his first Premier League game for them, [.
Arsenal followed up their late win over Crystal Palace last weekend by labouring to a goalless draw in Istanbul in their Champions League qualifier first leg and now face a tough trip to Goodison Park on Saturday evening.

After a few years of disappointment, for both Arsenal and England, and with a few pieces of bad publicity following him around, the young Gunner Jack Wilshere has admitted that this season is an absolutely huge one for him. It is no exaggeration to say that the next nine months or so could make or [.
Besiktas 0 – 0 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 7 Only had to make a few select saves but made them as required and wasn't at fault for any chances. A solid performance. Debuchy – 6 He was again a bit iffy for me. Easily caught out of position when high up [...]
There was a great swell of relief around the Emirates when Aaron Ramsey bundled the ball in the back of the net to give Arsenal there first opening day win since 2009. But according to last year's Player Of The Year, it is only the result that matters. "It was very difficult," Ramsey told Sky [...]
Arsenal made very hard work of the first half, and with Palace playing it very tight at the back it was looking difficult to get the ball to lone striker Yaya Sanogo. All the same it was a bit of a shock when the long-mooted Arsenal target Brede Hangerland flew above the Gunners defence to [...]

All Arsenal fans are clamouring for Arsene Wenger to still splash the cash on a striker and a new defensive midfielder, but it appears that Arsene Wenger believes that the new young arrival Calum Chambers is more than capable of fulfilling that role, and suggests he could be tried out in that position in todays [.
