Arsene Wenger needs to spend in the right areas 0

Posted on November 26, 2015 by David Nugent

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated that he is willing to spend money in the January transfer window, but has once again reiterated that he will only spend money if the right player is available. Same statement he makes on a b-annual basis really.

At his weekly press conference Wenger said: “We are in a position where we want to do something. If I find the right quality I will do something.”

Asked if he was looking for a bargain in the January sales Wenger replied: “Who doesn’t love a bargain? What is for us a bargain is to buy top quality as only top quality strengthens our squad.

Can favourable run of games to come see Arsenal finish 2015 at the Premier League summit? 0

Arsenal have endured a mini-slump in the Premier League, but ended their winless run with a convincing victory in the Champions League that should now see them with some momentum going into their next league outing. A trip to Carrow Road to face a struggling Norwich City is next up for the Gunners, presenting Arsene Wenger’s side with a chance to turn their form around. Arsenal are 4/7 to see past the Canaries, and have a favourable run of games to come after their City clash that could see them going into the New Year top of the table.

England starlet Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain should be fit to make Arsenal squad for the upcoming Premier League fixture against Norwich City, where the Gunners have been made 4/7 favourites to emerge victorious.

Arsene Wenger’s charges were unable to take advantage of Manchester City’s slip-up and climb to the Premier League summit as they were surprisingly beaten by West Bromwich at the Hawthorns.

The Gunners quickly bounced back as the 3-0 triumph over Dinamo Zagreb kept their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League knockout phase alive, and it’s now time to shift the focus back to the league campaign.

Could injury woes in attack see Arsene Wenger bolster strikeforce? 0

Posted on November 26, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Various reports are suggesting Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has lost patience with injured forwards Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott, and is looking for a new centre-forward to compete directly with Olivier Giroud for a starting place in the second-half of the season. Arsenal have suffered an injury crisis this season, and it’s highlighted how little strength in depth they have in attack when key members are on the treatment table, which could turn Wenger’s hand to bolster their strikeforce.

Could Arsene Wenger replicate Eric Dier’s midfield transformation at Tottenham for Calum Chambers? 1

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been full of praise for out-of-favour defender Calum Chambers, and believes the England international has the quality to fill a void in the midfielder given the Gunners’ recent injury crisis. While having hardly featured for Arsenal in 2015, Chambers could well be given a new lease of life in a new role, similar to that of Eric Dier in the Tottenham side.

Ozil and Sanchez once again star for Arsenal 0

Posted on November 25, 2015 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s 3-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League on Tuesday night keeps the Gunners chances of making the knockout stages alive. It was Arsenal’s two most expensive signings in the history of the club that were once again at the heart of the win.

Simply unstoppable

When Arsenal play their best football inevitably Mesut Ozil or Alexis Sanchez, or both are at the heart of action. Last night’s game proved that, as Sanchez scored a brace and Ozil also got on the scoresheet as the Gunners secured a comfortable victory.

Arsenal completed a 3-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League to keep their hopes of making the last 16 alive. Alexis Sanchez grabbed a brace and Mesut Ozil also got on the scoresheet.

The first attempt on goal came from the home side on seven minutes. Joel Campbell fired in a cross to Santi Cazorla at the near post, but the Spaniard fired well over the bar.

Arsenal kept coming forward and on ten minutes Olivier Giroud missed the target from a Mesut Ozil corner kick. The Gunners continued to dominate possession without creating any other clear-cut chances until taking the lead on 29 minutes.

Gabriel believes Arsenal have learned from Zagreb defeat in Croatia 0

Posted on November 24, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Ahead of tonight’s Champions League clash between Arsenal and Dinamo Zagreb, Gunners centre-back Gabriel feels the side won’t make the same mistakes from the reverse fixture as they seek all three points to try and prolong their stay in the competition this season. They’ve suffered a poor European campaign so far

Anything less than a win will eliminate Arsenal from the group stage with one game spare, so they can’t afford another slip-up. Zagreb won 2-1 at home against the Londoners, but have lost their other three Champions League games in the group. As a result, Arsenal are firm favourites to win at the Emirates, and Gabriel is backing his team to deliver.

Arsenal vs Dinamo Zagreb – 2/1 on Arsenal to Win & BTTS 0

Posted on November 24, 2015 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Arsenal missed a perfect opportunity to climb to the top of the Premier League standings as they failed to get anything from the weekend’s clash with West Bromwich, and the team are now shifting their focus towards the Champions League campaign.

Things are not looking good there either given that the Gunners sit six points behind Bayern and Olympiakos ahead of the final two matchdays, but the good news is that Arsene Wenger’s charges still have a chance of reaching the next stage.

Aaron Ramsey to feature against Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday night 1

Posted on November 23, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has recovered from injury, and could be thrown straight into the side for Tuesday evening’s clash with Dinamo Zagreb. The Welsh international has been out of action for a number of weeks, but is likely to be immediately trusted upon given Arsenal’s growing list of casualties.

Ramsey has operated in a wider role this season, but could return to his favoured position at the heart of the midfield with Francis Coquelin and Mikel Arteta both out of action. Manager Arsene Wenger hasn’t had the luxury of naming his strongest side for a run of games and the weakening of their eleven has cost them on the pitch.
