Posted on May 22, 2015 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has suggested that he still doesn’t know whether England forward Danny Welbeck will be available for selection for the FA Cup final against Aston Villa.

The 24-year-old has missed last four fixtures through a knee injury and he has been ruled out of weekend’s match against West Bromwich, where the Gunners will have nothing to play for.

However, Welbeck has been called by Roy Hodgson for England’s games against Republic of Ireland and Slovenia, which is enough to suggest the talented forward could soon return into action.

Posted on May 21, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal’s season is once again down to interpretation, with supporters torn on how the Gunners’ performances have been over the course of the campaign. Their form in 2015 was formidable until a few weeks ago, where they dropped points in four of their last five Premier League outings, and now they are on course for a bittersweet finish.

Arsene Wenger’s men are on course to finish third in the Premier League, but with a points per game average worse than two. They have lost seven games from 37 played in the division, which is keeping them at least arm’s length from the sides above them in the table. By comparison, Chelsea had only lost two games before sealing the title, and last season three teams ahead of the Gunners lost less games than Arsenal.

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott impressed in the 0-0 draw against Sunderland on Wednesday night, with the England international come close to scoring the winning goal at the death. The former Southampton man brilliantly accelerated from a challenge on the right flank, and worked his way into the box for a scoring opportunity, but found his shot saved.

After the game, Walcott’s performance was put to manager Arsene Wenger, who tried to play down any questions of why the 26-year-old still remains on the bench, despite looking fit enough to start. The forward himself did saw in his post-match interview that he needs more minutes on the pitch to hit some form, but his manager doesn’t seem keen to allow it just yet.

Arsenal were held to a goalless draw at home to Sunderland on Wednesday night, which was the third game on the bounce in their own backyard that they’ve failed to score in. The Gunners certainly haven’t been without their chances in all three games, but have been guilty of profligacy which has ultimately cost them nine points in recent weeks home and away.

After the Sunderland stalemate, manager Arsene Wenger admitted he’s never pleased to have not won a game, but there were many aspects of the game that he did enjoy, mainly the performances of his attacking players. There were positives to take from the game, but ultimately Arsenal are ending the season poorly after so much promise of finishing at least second a matter of weeks ago.
