Arsenal v Norwich Premier League Preview 0

Posted on April 29, 2016 by David Nugent

Arsenal hosts Norwich at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday looking to move closer to secure a top four finish this season.

Arsenal will be looking to gain ground on the teams above them in the Premier League and stave off the threat of the teams behind them in table. Fifth-place Manchester United are now five points behind the Gunners in the table.

Arsene Wenger’s team are currently unbeaten in seven games, but three of those games have been draws, so the side from north London are now in danger of missing out on the top four. However, a win in this clash would see the Gunners take a big step towards sealing a Champions League spot for next season.

Posted on April 28, 2016 by David Nugent

Leicester and France central midfielder N’Golo Kante is again being linked with a move to Arsenal by the Independent, but the Gunners also have Granit Xhaka as a back-up if they cannot prise Kante away from the Foxes.

Still need steel in midfield

Despite the emergence of French defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin there is still a feeling that the Gunners need another strong central midfielder in their team.

Leicester’s Kante has been nothing short of sensational and of course Arsene Wenger had seen him play before his move to the Foxes, as the veteran French boss is fantastic at signing players in hindsight, but not exactly great at signing players in real time.

The long-serving manager has another year left on his current deal and he is under a great deal of pressure following yet another disappointing season.

The club bosses must be thinking about the man to replace Arsene Wenger, when he finally leaves the club, and former Gunner Ray Parlour believes Diego Simeone has got to be taken into consideration.

“The obvious choice would be probably Simeone but it would probably go back to a bit more of a negative style of play,” Parlour told talkSPORT.

Injuries have had an effect on the campaign

The injuries have no doubt hindered the Gunners campaign this season, especially injuries to Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla earlier the campaign. A fully-fit squad would have coped with the rigours of challenging on all fronts far better.

Posted on April 26, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin was selected in the PFA Team of the Year or his performances this season, but his selection has caused debate among supporters who feel there were other more deserving candidates. In the first-half of the season, Bellerin was certainly enjoying his best form, but in 2016 he’s looked more human, so did he deserve his Team of the Year nod?

The 21-year-old has enjoyed a spectacular breakthrough campaign as Arsenal’s undisputed first-choice right-back. He’s made 33 appearances in the Premier League, and has scored & assisted five goals in the process. Bellerin boasts excessive pace to amend for any defensive error and he’s reading the game brilliantly to keep out the opposition.
