Aaron Ramsey showing increased productivity 3

Posted on December 03, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal and Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey seems to be a divisive figure amongst Gunners fans. The former Cardiff ace arrived in north London as a highly promising young player.

However, the midfielder’s Arsenal career has been blighted by injuries and lack of consistency. However, slowly but surely his productiveness has improved this season.

Yesterday’s assist for Alexandre Lacazette’s goal in the Gunners 3-1 defeat by Manchester United on Sunday means that he has now produced six assists and three assists in the Premier League this season. In fact, he has produced five assists in as many games in the Premier League.

Arsenal must learn the defensive lessons from their loss to Manchester United 2

Posted on December 02, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Three mistakes, three goals. That is all it took to beat an Arsenal side that, bar their three moments of weakness, were outstanding. 75% possession, 33 shots of which 15 were on target, and 12 corners displays just how good they were, while it also shows the outstanding contribution of David de Gea too.

Manchester United’s first goal saw Antonio Valencia capitalise on a loose Laurent Koscielny pass to drill home the opener, while Jesse Lingard made good use of Shkodran Mustafi dawdling on the ball. The killer-blow came via a slick counter-attack as Koscielny was easily brushed aside in the penalty area by Paul Pogba, who squared the ball for Lingard to tap home.

Arsenal have to bounce back immediately after their loss to Manchester United 2

Posted on December 02, 2017 by Ben Darvill

When Manchester City drew with Everton back in August, they were able to hit back with a run of games that has seen them not drop a single point in the league or in Europe since then. When Chelsea lost to Crystal Palace in October, they managed to embark upon a run in which they are unbeaten in seven Premier League games, winning six of them. In a few months time, Arsenal need to make sure that people are saying the same about their run of wins after losing to Manchester United.

Beating Manchester United could be Arsenal’s biggest statement of intent 0

Arsenal host Manchester United in a huge game at the top of the table on Saturday with two of England’s biggest teams once again locking horns. With the two sides in desperate need of a win to ensure Manchester City do not get any further ahead, a victory over United could prove to be Arsenal’s biggest triumph yet.

As performances go this season, it is difficult to look past Arsenal’s dismantling of Tottenham as the most impressive by a Gunners side this season. They controlled the game from start to finish, with Spurs unable to gain any kind of foothold in the contest.

Mesut Ozil shining for Arsenal 1

Posted on November 30, 2017 by David Nugent

Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil is a player that divides opinion. Some believe that he is a footballing genius, a player capable of producing great work of art on the pitch.

Others believe that he is a lazy and lethargic player, who does not give his team enough when really needed.

For me, he is a very talented player, who sometimes is hammered at times because he does not always produce his best form. However, that could apply to any player in world football.

Arsenal seem to be turning a corner 0

Posted on November 29, 2017 by Ben Darvill

It was a five-star performance from the Gunners on Wednesday evening as they continued their rejuvenation. With the win, it seems as though Arsenal are finally beginning to turn a corner.

Arsene Wenger’s men were outstanding on the night as they brushed Huddersfield aside. Goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, and a double from Olivier Giroud were more than enough for the London side as they overpowered their opponents.

The victory has seen Arsenal tighten their grip on fourth-place, with the Gunners two points clear of Liverpool in fifth, and just a point behind Chelsea in third.

Will Alexis Sanchez give his all for the rest of his Arsenal career? 0

Posted on November 27, 2017 by David Nugent

It is no secret that Arsenal’s Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez is looking to leave the club. It may be in January or it may be next summer. Either way it seems doubtful he will be a Gunners player next season.

The former-Barcelona ace has not been at his best this season. However, on Sunday afternoon he scored the winning goal from the penalty spot in a 1-0 win at Burnley. The goal was his third in his last five Premier League appearances.

Sanchez’s motivation questioned

Arsenal’s win over Burnley is a big deal 0

Posted on November 26, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Arsenal battled to a 1-0 win over Burnley courtesy of the boot of Alexis Sanchez on Sunday as Arsene Wenger’s men continued their revival following their 2-0 win over Tottenham. While the win may sound routine, it is anything but.

Taking the scalp of Burnley used to be one of those wins that people would see and move on from almost instantly. Sean Dyche’s men, while renowned for their ability defensively, offered little else, with one goal usually able to settle a game against them.

Gunners 6/1 to win the Europa League 0

Posted on November 24, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal are the favourites to win the Europa League this season, despite a 1-0 defeat against Koln on Thursday night in their penultimate group game.

The Gunners have confirmed their place of winners of Group H with a game to spare. The north London giants are now odds of 6/1 to win the competition this season.

Arsene Wenger’s side have qualified in a relatively comfortable manner from a group most would describe as mediocre.

Koln themselves went into last night’s clash having failed to win any of their games in the Bundesliga this season. Peter Stoger’s side did up their game for the clash, in which Wenger decided to field a number of fringe players.

Granit Xhaka believes Arsenal can catch Manchester City 0

Posted on November 21, 2017 by David Nugent

According to Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka, the Gunners can still catch Premier League leaders Manchester City this season. The Switzerland international has to say that really, though.

He cannot exactly say that the Gunners are just hoping to claim a Champions League place, which they are odds of 11/8 to do this season. The midfielder has to say his team are aiming for the title.

When asked if he thought the Gunners could catch Manchester City, Xhaka told Sky Sports News: “I think in football everything is possible,”
