Arsenal 1/1 to win against Manchester United this afternoon 0

Posted on October 04, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal welcome the visit of Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium at arguably the worst time this season with the Gunners struggling for results of late. Arsene Wenger’s men have suffered three defeats in their last five games in all competitions, and are directly coming off the back of a loss in the Champions League in midweek.

There’s also questions about their home form, and how poor they have been in their own backyard this season. Arsenal have picked up just one win at the Emirates from four played in the Premier League and Europe so far, so hosting an in-form Manchester United side who could go top of the table with a win today isn’t ideal for the Londoners.

Arsenal host Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon, as the home side look to go level on points with the Red Devils in the Premier League.

The Gunners are looking to bounce back from a 3-2 home Champions League defeat against Greek champions Olympiakos last time out. However, Arsene Wenger’s side have hit some decent form in the Premier League in recent time times, having won four out of their last six top-flight games.

The side from north London have lost just three of their last 38 games at the Emirates Stadium, although one of those defeats came on the opening day of the season against West Ham.

Will Mesut Ozil finally deliver against Manchester United this weekend? 0

Posted on October 03, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has had an indifferent time at the Emirates since his £42M move from Real Madrid in 2013. The German international, 26, has had good performances and bad, but he’s continued to struggle against stellar opposition in an Arsenal shirt. He’s gone cold in every game against this weekend’s opponents Manchester United – failing to score or make an assist – but can he finally shine this time round?

Cech calls on struggling Arsenal side to start winning ugly 0

Posted on October 03, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal new-boy Petr Cech believes the Gunners need to start putting results ahead of performances, with the London outfit coming off the back of three defeats from their last five games in all competitions. Arsenal recently lost at home to Olympiacos in the Champions League, and pressure has been mounting on manager Arsene Wenger and the players as a result.

Despite consistently boasting high-levels of possession, and having created a high number of chances per game this season, Arsenal just aren’t being ruthless enough where it matters. Arsenal’s Champions League hopes are already hanging by a thread, they’ve won just once from four home games ahead of a weekend clash against Manchester United, and Cech is rallying the troops to do what ever it takes to win.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has talked up the important of this weekend’s clash with league leaders Manchester United with how tight the title race currently is in the Premier League. Ahead of Sunday’s outing at the Emirates Stadium, 4th-placed Arsenal and Manchester United are separated by three points in the table, which means the Gunners could finish the weekend top of the pack if they can finally beat the Red Devils.

The two sides have played out memorable fixtures down the years when Arsenal and Manchester United were fighting it out for the league crown in the past. And despite both clubs finishing considerably off the top spot in the last two seasons, this weekend’s meeting sees a title-race six-pointer finally returning to the Emirates.

Alexis Sanchez 13/10 to score anytime in tonight’s Champions League clash against Olympiacos 0

Posted on September 29, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is expected to start against Olympiacos in the Champions League tonight, and the Chilean attacker will be looking to build on his impressive antics from the weekend. Coming off the back of netting a hat-trick in Saturday’s 5-2 win over Leicester City, Alexis Sanchez could be the one to watch this evening in the Gunners’ European bout.

His second season at the Emirates had begun slowly, with the 26-year-old failing to score in his first eight appearances in all competitions, but the pressure has eased after his three goals against the Foxes. Sanchez will be hoping to continue his run in front of goal to help lead Arsenal to victory in Europe as the Londoners cannot afford more dropped points if they want to qualify.

Arsenal 2/5 to pick up all three points against Olympiacos tonight in the Champions League 0

Posted on September 29, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal welcome Greek giants Olympiacos to the Emirates Stadium tonight in their second Champions League group game of the season, and the Gunners are big favourites to earn all three points given their recent upturn in form.

Coming off the back of consecutive wins in the Capital One Cup (Tottenham 1-2 Arsenal) and Premier League (Leicester 2-5 Arsenal) respectively, Arsene Wenger’s men are hoping to finally get off the mark in Europe.

The Gunners surprisingly lost their Champions League opener to Dinamo Zagreb, so they are desperate to turn things around tonight. With Bayern Munich to face next month only a win will do this evening.

Arsenal vs Olympiakos Champions League Preview 0

Posted on September 28, 2015 by David Nugent

Arsenal will be looking to kick-start their Champions League campaign on Tuesday night, as the Gunners host Greek champions Olympiakos at the Emirates Stadium.

The north London club started their European campaign with a shock 2-1 defeat at Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb, as Gunners striker Olivier Giroud was sent-off in the first half. It was an unexpected start to their campaign and Arsene Wenger’s men will be looking to get back on track in this clash.

The Gunners will take confidence from a 2-1 Capital One Cup win at Tottenham, and Saturday’s 5-2 demolition of Leicester at the King Power Stadium, in a game that Alexis Sanchez broke his scoring duck with a hat-trick.

Can Arsene Wenger continue his impressive personal record against Claudio Ranieri? 0

Posted on September 26, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Leicester City’s clash against Arsenal this afternoon sees old adversaries Claudio Ranieri and Arsene Wenger finally squaring off. The Arsenal manager boasts a dominant record against his Italian counterpart ahead of today’s Premier League meeting, but can he continue his winning ways over the 63-year-old at the King Power Stadium?

The two experienced managers are just two years apart in age, with Ranieri having a nomadic coaching career, while Wenger is better known for his longevity at Arsenal. Ranieri boasts impressive win ratios in his last number of jobs, while the Gunners boss has been consistent in the Premier League to keep Arsenal in the top-four every season he’s been in charge.

Leicester City & Arsenal 4/6 Both Teams to Score 0

Leicester City host Arsenal at the King Power Stadium this weekend in the Premier League, with the Foxes boasting an unbeaten record in their six games this season. Arsenal are coming off the back of a midweek win in the Capital One Cup, so they too will be full of confidence today. And while the outcome could be tricky to predict, one thing this afternoon’s game guarantees is goals.
