Arsenal should be worried by Leicester City form 0

Posted on February 10, 2016 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Having failed to hold on to the top position in the Premier League standings, Arsenal find themselves five points behind Leicester City ahead of the highly anticipated encounter at the Emirates.

What appeared to be a two-horse race between Man City and Arsenal could now prove to be one of the most exciting title run-ins yet, with Tottenham Hotspur and obviously Leicester mounting a serious challenge as well.

There are no doubts that the pressure is now on the Gunners in spite of the weekend’s win over Bournemouth as they face the Premier League leaders, who have just taught expensively-assembled Man City side a genuine lesson in football.

Rosicky highlights Ozil and Sanchez impact in Arsenal’s title hopes 0

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has hailed the impact of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez this season and believes the duo are making the difference for the Gunners in the title-race. Ozil leads the assist charts in the Premier League this campaign, while Alexis Sanchez was the Londoners’ top scorer last season.

The pair should both start against Leicester City on the weekend, and Arsenal are 4/5 to pick up all three points as a result. Victory would see them cut the deficit to City to two points, and Rosicky feels the added attacking talent in their squad is winning them games they’d previously fall short in.

Arsenal’s 2-0 win at Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday was vital. Prior to kick-off the Gunners were eight points behind league leaders Leicester in the table, after the Foxes recorded a sensational 3-1 win at title rivals Manchester City.

Kept their nerve

Recent results had consigned Arsenal to fourth spot in the table, but Arsene Wenger’s side kept their cool to record a win on the south coast through goals from Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. It was much-needed following a four game run without a win in the top-flight.

Welbeck plays in U21 victory against Brighton 0

Posted on February 07, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck made his return from injury in a 4-1 win against Brighton & Hove Albion U21s on Friday afternoon, and came through with no problems. The England international had been out of action since April last year, and has recently been back training with the squad with a view to featuring in the coming months of the Premier League campaign.

Manager Arsene Wenger previous revealed the former Manchester United forward would not be rushed back into the team due to the nature of his knee injury, so Welbeck is expected to make a number of appearances for the U21s and non-competitive friendlies before he’s brought back into the first-team squad for Premier League action.

Alexis Sanchez still some way short on match fitness 0

Posted on February 07, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez played 80 minutes in the Gunners’ 2-0 win against Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon, but showed he’s still building up his match fitness. The Chilean international was far from his best at Dean Court, spurning one notable opportunity, and will clearly need more time to capture his best form.

After latching on to an aerial pass, Sanchez fired over from close range, a chance who would normally bury, and was guilty of being wasteful in possession at times. Given offside more times than any of his teammates, while struggling to beat his opposite marker when on the ball, supporters will have to be patient see the best of their prolific attacker.
