Arsenal target PSG star as Ozil, Sanchez replacement 0

Posted on September 18, 2017 by Milos Markovic

Premier League club Arsenal are said to be plotting a January move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Lucas Moura.

The Gunners are apparently ready to reignite the long-standing spark and push for a move for the Brazilian star whose place in the team is coming under jeopardy.

The French giants are coming off from a big-spending summer.

They broke the world record to sign the Barcelona superstar Neymar and also boosted their squad with one of the hottest properties in European football, Kylian Mbappe. The French starlet joined PSG on a season-long loan with an option to buy.

Chelsea and Arsenal produce a stalemate at Stamford Bridge 2

Posted on September 17, 2017 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Chelsea and Arsenal played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge. The biggest talking about the game turned out to be a late red card for Chelsea defender David Luiz.

Chelsea made a bright start to the game, with former Blues goalkeeper Petr Cech having to produce good saves from Victor Moses and then Pedro. The home side threatened again, as Cesc Fabregas played a one-two with Willian before the Spaniard fire an effort towards goal only for a combination of Danny Welbeck and Cech at the near post to snub out the danger.

Henry: Arsenal must beat Chelsea to prove title credentials 0

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry says the Gunners have to win against the defending champions in Sunday afternoon’s Premier League at Stamford Bridge to prove they are still a top side. The former striker believes Arsenal need to “show they mean business” by beating the best sides in the division, as that’s the only way their hopes of winning the title will be taken seriously.

Ozil out for Chelsea clash 2

Posted on September 17, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil will miss Sunday afternoon’s Premier League clash with Chelsea through injury, reports the Express. The German international trained away from the squad with six other first-team players on ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash, and still hasn’t recovered in time for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

Arsene Wenger admitted the 28-year-old was a doubt along with midfielder Aaron Ramsey for this weekend’s meeting with the Premier League defending champions, meaning the Gunners boss will be forced into some changes. Without Ramsey in the side, Mohamed Elneny or Francis Coquelin could deputise. Without Ozil for Sunday’s game, Danny Welbeck could replace him.

Arsenal kick-off Europa League campaign with a victory 0

Arsenal kicked off their Europa League campaign with a 3-1 victory over Koln on Thursday night. The kick-off was delayed by an hour due to crowd safety issues, but that mattered very little in the end to the Gunners, as they put in a strong second half display to see off the visitors.

The visitors scored with virtually the first attempt on goal on ten minutes. David Ospina rushed out of his goal to clear a long ball over the top, only for Bittencourt to find Cordoba, who lofted the ball back over the Colombian from around 40 yards out and into the net.

Ancelotti could replace Wenger at Arsenal 0

Posted on September 14, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to ESPN, Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti could return to England in search for a new challenge if he exits the Allianz Arena this season, and the Arsenal job is believed to be one he could end up pursuing.

Ancelotti won the German Bundesliga title and DFL Supercup in his first season in Germany, but there’s reports of discontentment behind the scenes after their early Champions League exit and failure to reach the German Cup final.

Arsene Wenger has stated the new season under pressure among Arsenal supporters following their poor start in the Premier League, and defeat to Chelsea on Sunday could almost make his position untenable.

Mesut Ozil contract talks break down, German genius set to leave Arsenal 0

Posted on September 13, 2017 by Milos Markovic

If reports coming from Germany are anything to go by, Mesut Ozil will pack his bags and leave Arsenal on a free transfer next summer.

German playmaker is in the final year of his deal with the north London club but it appears that negotiations over the contract extension have broken down and that Ozil has decided to walk away from Arsenal at the end of the season.

The 28-year-old has been one of the hottest transfer stories for months now as he is one of several Arsenal players nearing the end of their deal at the Emirates with the club actively trying to tie them down on new deals.

Wilshere will feature against FC Koln 0

Posted on September 13, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to the Mirror, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere will be named in the squad against FC Koln for Thursday’s Europa League clash. The Gunners are 2/7 to win against the German Bundesliga side, but it will be a special moment to see a player make his long-awaited return after 13 months.

Wilshere has been recovering from a leg fracture picked up while on loan with Bournemouth. He suffered the injury in April and has been playing for the u23s to build up his match fitness. The 25-year-old is playing for his future, with his contract expiring at the end of next summer, so this week’s European encounter may have significant importance for Wilshere.

Bellerin says Arsenal are fully focused on the Europa League not Sunday’s meeting with Chelsea 0

Posted on September 12, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin says the Gunners are completely focused on Thursday’s Europa League clash, rather than Sunday’s Premier League meeting with Chelsea. Arsenal are 2/7 to win against FC Koln before they face the defending champions on the weekend, but Bellerin says the squad aren’t thinking about anything other than beating Koln.

“Our focus is on Thursday’s game. It is a very important match to start the Europa League on the right foot. We have to give our best and only after that will we start to think about Chelsea [Sunday 1.30pm]. The Europa League is a very important competition for us,” he said to IBTimes.

Europa League: Back Gunners at 20/1 betting odds for a strong start vs FC Koln 0

Posted on September 12, 2017 by Milos Markovic

For the first time in 21 years, the Premier League giants from north London are not in the Champions League.

A disappointing domestic campaign resulted in Gunners finishing outside the top four last term, forcing them to settle for a place in a less alluring competition of Europa League. Arsene Wenger promises not to take this European challenge lightly, but is still expected to treat it the same way he treats the League Cup of FA Cup.

Europa League will be a perfect chance for certain players to gain match fitness and valuable international experience, while for others it will be perhaps the only chance to feel the pride of playing in the first team.
