Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has provided the latest injury update at the press conference ahead of the Premier League clash against Burnley, and there were some mixed news for the Gunners fans.

While everyone is eagerly awaiting Theo Walcott’s return into action, the French manager is eager to be extremely cautious with his star player, meaning the England international may not even get involved against Burnley.

Walcott watched the Sunderland win from the bench and while he has suffered no setbacks, he is set for another bench appearance, with Wenger suggesting he is not yet ready for competitive football.

Arsenal will be look to claim a second consecutive league victory as they welcome the Premier League’s bottom team Burnley to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The Gunners claimed a 2-0 victory at Sunderland last time out, as Alexis Sanchez seized on mistakes by Wes Brown and former-Gunners keeper Vito Mannone to score a brace. That win in the north east followed the dramatic 2-1 Champions League victory at Anderlecht.

Arsenal have not suffered a home league defeat since the opening game of last season. However, their last three home games have resulted in draws.

Young Brazilian winger Wellington Silva has finally been granted a work permit to play for Arsenal. The 21-year-old joined the Gunners in 2010 from Fluminense in a deal worth in the region of £3.5million. However, Silva was not eligible for a work permit and had to be loaned out to Spanish clubs.

Loan Moves

Silva has since been loaned out to Spanish clubs Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Murcia and Almeria. Silva is currently on-loan at Almeria in La Liga, but has failed to really make his mark in the Spanish top-flight this season. Silva has made six appearances for Almeria, but has not yet scored.

Chilean newspaper La Tercera has made a bold claim that La Roja superstar Alexis Sanchez is not satisfied with the latest developments at his new club Arsenal having been disappointed by some of his teammates.

The 25-year-old needed a while to prove his worth at the Emirated after arriving in a £32 million deal from Barcelona, but he has been in excellent form of late and was voted club’s Player of the Month for October.

And while he obviously cannot be happy with Arsenal’s current league position, it appears the Chile international has other concerns at the moment.

Chilean forward unsurprisingly Alexis Sanchez won club’s Player of the Month award for October winning more than 90 per cent of the votes, with Danny Welbeck and Kieran Gibbs coming second and third respectively.

This was by far Sanchez’s most successful month since joining the Gunners in the summer, with the forward having bagged no less than four goals in October to prove he is slowly returning to form following a slow start to the season.

The Chilean started the new month by netting the third goal in the 4-1 triumph over Galatasaray in the Champions League, before scoring and assisting in the 2-2 draw with Hull City at the Emirates.

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal could be set to raid Spanish La Liga side Athletic Bilbao for highly-rated young centre-back Aymeric Laporte. The 20-year-old has a growing reputation and is the sort of player that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger loved to develop in the past.


Laporte is highly-rated and it was thought that in time the youngster may move on to Spanish giants Barcelona or Real Madrid and had in fact been linked with the former in the summer.

However with interest also growing from elsewhere he could move away from La Liga, with reports suggesting that Laporte is one of Arsene Wenger’s main transfer targets in January.

Is a slow spine the reason for Arsenal’s defensive frailties? 0

Arsenal a suffered a poor start to the new Premier League campaign, with Arsene Wenger’s side having won just three games from nine so far.

Despite being so early into the season, the Gunners find themselves 25/1 to win the Premier League title. But is the lack of pace in the spine of the team the reason for their poor start?

With Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta protecting the defence, and Per Mertesacker at the heart of the backline, Arsenal don’t boast much natural pace in the defensive central areas, and it’s perhaps reason why they have conceded goals so readily.

Should Arsene Wenger have signed Alex Song this summer? 0

Posted on October 29, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

With how well West Ham midfielder Alex Song has performed for the Londoners, Arsenal supporters are questioning why they didn’t look to re-sign their former player.

Song, 27, recently revealed he wants to remain in the Premier League following his loan spell from Barcelona, and his form has drawn him praise from West Ham manager Sam Allardyce.

“I think my future will be here. My family, everyone is happy here. I’m very happy to come back to England. I’ve always said if I move from Barcelona, I’ll come to England and my future is here anyway. I just want to enjoy playing at the moment and we’ll see what is happening at the end of the season,” said Song.

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal are favourites to sign Dortmund and Germany star Mats Hummels. The Germany international has been linked with a move away from the German club for a while now, with both Arsenal and Manchester United believed to be interested in signing him.


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is looking for a new centre-back to strengthen his defence. However, reports from Russia claim that the veteran Dutch boss has turned his attention to signing Zenit St Petersburg star Ezequiel Garay in January.

That means that Arsenal have now emerged as favourites to the highly-rated Mats Hummels when the transfer window re-opens.

Arsenal wantaway forward Lukas Podolski may not have played a great deal for the Gunners since returning from the 2014 World Cup, but he has used his spare time to visit his hometown Cologne on several occasions.

While the Germany international was obviously in the stands to support his former club FC Koln, he also managed to get his acting career off to a good start, having shot several scenes for a German comedy film called ‘Macho Man’.

The movie is an adaptation of Moritz Netenjakob’s novel of the same name and it follows the adventures of Daniel Hagenberger and his love affair with Turkish woman Aylin Denizoglu.
