Posted on November 23, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Former-Arsenal legend Martin Keown has praised youngster Reiss Nelson after his performance in the Europa League clash with Cologne on Thursday evening. Despite the 1-0 loss, Keown clearly sees the player’s performance as a huge positive to come from the game.

It was not Arsenal’s night in Germany as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Cologne via a Sehrou Guirassy penalty. The scoreline was a disappointing one, but it did not stop Arsenal from securing their place in the knock-out stages of the tournament, although it did end their run of unbeaten games in the competition.

Former-Gunner Lauren has claimed that a happy Alexis Sanchez could win Arsenal the Premier League despite speculation surrounding his future intensifying in recent weeks as the world’s top clubs circle.

Arsenal were able to overcome an apparent mini-crisis at the weekend as they dismantled Tottenham 2-0. The scoreline did not flatter the Gunners as they completely outplayed their rivals who, in truth, did not ever really turn up in the game.

Arsenal suffered a 1-0 defeat against Koln in their penultimate game of their Europa League group. However, the north London side still qualified for the knockout stages courtesy of results elsewhere.

The visitors took just two minutes to threaten the Koln goal. Jack Wilshere played a through-ball to Ainsley Maitland-Niles, whose effort at the near post was parried behind by Koln ‘keeper Timo Horn.

The home side’s first attempt on goal came on six minutes. Cordoba’s cross-shot almost caught David Ospina out, but the Colombian diverted the ball wide of goal with his fingertips.

La Liga title contenders Barcelona have stepped up the chase for Arsenal star Mesut Ozil.

The Catalans have been informed of the German international’s availability by Arsene Wenger himself, claims Don Balon, and have moved forward to open talks regarding a possible January move.

Wenger is keen to cash in on his wantaway star rather than lose him for free when Ozil’s contract expires at the end of the season and Barcelona are prepared to take advantage of such a situation.

Arsenal dismantled Tottenham 2-0 in the north London derby as the Gunners took a massive step towards revitalising their Premier League campaign. Arsene Wenger has had to deal with a lot of criticism recently, while his two best players in Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are supposedly on the cusp of leaving. However, Nacho Monreal has claimed otherwise.

It was exactly the sort of performance that Arsenal needed on Saturday as they came back from their disappointing defeat at the hands of Manchester City. Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez were on target in the win, with the home side good value for the victory.

Arsenal open talks with Paris Saint-Germain over HUGE January deal 0

Reports in France are spreading a huge transfer story that involves Arsenal and one of Paris Saint-Germain’s biggest stars Julian Draxler.

Gunners have long been linked with the German international who has thus far been rewarded with only seven Ligue 1 games this season. Arsene Wenger have been keeping the German international in his sight since his early days and the French tactician is a known admirer of his talents.

Draxler is said to be desperately looking for regular football in order to polish his form ahead of the next summer’s World Cup in Russia and it is French media outlet L’Equipe who claim that a number of Europe’s clubs – including Arsenal – are monitoring the situation.

Arsenal beat Tottenham 2-0 on Saturday at the Emirates Stadium as they relieved some of the pressure that had been building up on the team. Following the win, former-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has claimed that Arsenal are still a bigger club than Tottenham, despite Spurs finishing above them last season.

For Arsenal, last Saturday’s win over Tottenham was a massive result as they defied the critics who claimed that the Gunners would be no match for their opponents. In fact, Arsenal outplayed Tottenham in every position on the pitch and they fully deserved their reward of three vital points.

Another day, another Mesut Ozil rumour as midfielder’s former club join race 0

It’s just another regular day in the Mesut Ozil transfer saga.

The 29-year-old World Cup winner is nowhere near signing a new contract with the London-based club and is looking increasingly likely to leave the Emirates as early as January.

Mesut Ozil produced a superb display in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Tottenham last weekend to send a clear message to his relentless critics and also to show potential suitors what is there to get in the German midfield maestro.

Ozil has initially been linked with a Manchester United switch but Arsene Wenger would rather not sell his prized asset to his direct rivals in the Premier League, more so to his hated rival Jose Mourinho.

Reports last week claimed that Rowley was leaving the club. However, it now seems the pair are set to work together. The Sky report claims a deal is close for the Gunners to complete the move for the highly-rated Mislintat, who is nicknamed ‘the diamond’.
