Arsenal v Atletico Madrid Europa League semi-final first leg preview 0

Posted on April 25, 2018 by David Nugent

On Thursday night, Arsenal host Spanish club Atletico Madrid at the Emirates Stadium in the Europa League semi-final first leg.

Arsenal heads into this game on the back of a 4-1 home win over West Ham. It was the story of the Gunners season, as they dominated the home game, but on their travels, Arsene Wenger’s team have been woeful.

However, the team from north London have a strong record in the Europa League, winning eight of their last 12 games in Europe’s secondary competition. The Gunners have also won three of their last four European games, while also scoring at least two goals in their last four games in Europe.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host West Ham at the Emirates Stadium, as the home look to build momentum ahead of Thursday night’s Europa League semi-final clash with Atletico Madrid.

The Gunners head into this clash on the back of the surprise news from Friday morning that veteran boss Arsene Wenger will step down as the clubs boss this summer.

Everybody connected with the club will be hoping that the team can finish the season in strong fashion. However, with the Europa League now the Gunners priority, the Premier League campaign is likely to take a back seat.

Newcastle v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal travel to in-form Newcastle in the Premier League, as the home side seek one more victory to secure their top-flight status.

Newcastle have moved away from the relegation zone with a three-game winning run of late in the Premier League. The Magpies are now ten points clear of the drop zone and look to be safe from the drop.

A 2-1 win away at Leicester in their last Premier League outing displayed the Magpies recent confidence.

Rafa Benitez’s team have a strong recent record at St James Park in the league, as the Magpies are unbeaten in six home games, having won their three Premier League games on home soil.

CSKA Moscow v Arsenal Europa League preview 0

On Thursday night, Arsenal travel to the Russian capital to face CSKA Moscow in the Europa League quarter-final second leg. The Gunners take a commanding 4-1 lead into the clash, but cannot afford complacency against the Russian side.

The home side have been in patchy form in recent weeks and their Europa League form has been little more consistent either. The Russian side have won just two of their last six games in Europe.

The Russian side’s last two European games have seen over 2.5 goals. However, their previous five games produced under 2.5 goals.

Arsenal v Southampton Premier League preview 0

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host relegation-threatened Southampton at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners are currently sixth-place in the table and a top-four finish now looks well beyond Arsene Wenger’s team. However, the Gunners have been in decent form of late, winning their last five games in all competitions, having scored at least two goals in all five of the victories.

The north London side has also won their last two Premier League games 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium. One of the positives, as always it seems with Arsenal is their home record.

Arsenal v CSKA Moscow Europa League quarter-final first leg preview 0

On Thursday night, Arsenal host CSKA Moscow at the Emirates Stadium in the quarter-final first leg of the Europa League.

Arsenal have been enduring a difficult campaign. However, the Europa League has been the highlight of the season so far. Last time out in the competition, the Gunners saw-off Italian giants AC Milan 5-1 on aggregate after a 2-0 win at the San Siro and a 3-1 victory at the Emirates.

The wins against the Rossoneri mean that Arsene Wenger’s side has now won four of their last five games in the Europa League. A key to that good run in Europe’s secondary competition is the home sides attacking prowess, as they have scored at least two goals in four of their last five European outings.

Arsenal v Stoke Premier League Preview 0

Posted on March 31, 2018 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host struggling Stoke City at the Emirates Stadium, as Arsene Wenger’s side attempt to continue their recent positive momentum of late.

The Gunners may be sixth-place in the table, but Wenger’s side has now recorded three successive wins in all competitions, including winning their last Premier League game 3-0 against Watford.

Despite that recent win over the Hornets, Arsenal’s recent top-flight record is concerning, as the north London side had lost the previous three games prior to the visit of Javi Gracia’s side to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal v AC Milan Europa League Preview 0

Posted on March 14, 2018 by David Nugent

On Thursday night, Arsenal host Italian giants AC Milan at the Emirates Stadium in the Europa League last 16 second leg. The Gunners recorded a highly respectable 2-0 win in the first leg courtesy of goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey.

Arsenal will be confident of progressing into the last eight, especially as they have a decent home record against Italian sides in Europe. The north London team have recorded nine wins from their last 15 meetings with Italian clubs, suffering just two defeats in the process.

Arsenal v Watford Premier League Preview 0

Posted on March 10, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s Premier League campaign has been a poor one so far. The Gunners look to be out of the race for a top-four finish, but will still be clinging to the hope that one of the top-four teams slip up in the remaining months of the season.

However, for Arsenal to capitalise on any slip-ups they must start winning games in the league, starting with a home clash against Watford on Sunday.

As Arsenal prepare for a key Premier League clash against Watford this weekend, we thought it’d be interesting to take a trip down memory lane in order to see how the last five games between these two sides have gone over the years.

While the stature of Arsenal Football Club alone would lead you to believe they’ve been dominant, they’ve actually lost three of their last five meetings against the Hornets – which is a record Arsene Wenger will be aiming to rectify on Sunday.
