Arsenal v Newcastle Premier League Preview 0

Posted on December 15, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal will look to bounce back from consecutive Premier League draws on Saturday afternoon, as the Gunners welcome Newcastle to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsene Wenger’s side drew 0-0 with West Ham last time out, which followed a 1-1 draw at Southampton. The draws have seen the Gunners slip to seventh in the table, although they are still just a point behind Tottenham, who currently occupy fourth spot.

Coupled with a 3-1 defeat by Manchester United prior to the draws, Arsenal have picked up just two points from their last three outings in the English top-flight.

West Ham v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

On Wednesday night, Arsenal travel the short distance to West Ham’s London Stadium for a midweek Premier League clash.

The home side will be heading into the clash in good spirits, following a 1-0 home win against reigning champions Chelsea last time out. The win means the Irons moved up to 18th place in the table.

David Moyes’ side are now only in the relegation zone on goal difference. With 17th place West Brom facing a difficult game at Liverpool, anything from this match would move the Hammers out of the drop zone.

Arsenal travels to St Mary’s to face Southampton on Sunday lunchtime, as the Gunners look to return to the Premier League’s top-four.

The home side are enduring an inconsistent campaign so far. The Saints are currently 11th in the Premier League after collecting just 17 points so far this season.

Mauricio Pellegrino’s side have won just one of their last six games in the top-flight while losing three of their last five Premier League outings. Last time out, the team from the south coast drew 1-1 with rivals Bournemouth.

On Thursday night, Arsenal plays their final group game of their Europa League campaign as they host Belarussian side BATE Borisov at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners have already qualified for the knockout stages and won Group H. However, the visitors are bottom of the group, but could still qualify for the knockout stages if results go their way in the final round of fixtures.

Arsenal heads into this game on the back of a 3-1 home defeat by Manchester United. The Gunners also lost their last Europa League game, suffering a 1-0 defeat in Germany against Koln.

Arsenal host Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening, as the Gunners look to bridge the four-point to the Red Devils.

The home side have hit form of late, winning their last three games in the Premier League without conceding a goal. Last time out in the top-flight, the north London side hammered Huddersfield 5-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

The win kept Arsene Wenger’s side in fourth place ahead of the likes of Liverpool and Burnley, with arch-rivals Tottenham now seventh place in the table.

Arsenal v Huddersfield Premier League Preview 0

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to strengthen their position in the Premier League’s top-four.

The Gunners moved into the Champions League spots last time out by recording a 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor courtesy of a stoppage-time penalty from Alexis Sanchez.

Arsene Wenger’s side have been rather inconsistent of late. However, their recent Premier League form has been strong, as the Gunners have now won four of their last five games in the English top-flight.

Burnley v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on November 25, 2017 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal face a tough trip to the north west to play Premier League surprise package, Burnley.

Burnley are enjoying a stellar campaign under highly-rated boss Sean Dyche. In fact, the Clarets are seventh place and level on points with the Gunners in the table. In fact, if results go Burnley’s way they could move up to as high as fourth in the Premier League table.

The Clarets are tough to beat and have lost just one of their last ten Premier League games, which came in a 3-0 defeat at runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Koln v Arsenal Europa League Preview 0

Posted on November 22, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal have the chance to officially seal their place in the knockout stages of the Europa League on Thursday night as the Gunners travel to Koln.

The Gunners are currently top of Group H and six points clear of third-place BATE Borisov, who have a vastly inferior goal difference to the visitors.

However, a point at the Rhein Energie Stadion on Thursday would officially see Arsene Wenger’s side progress to the knockout stages of the competition.

Arsenal v Tottenham Premier League Preview 0

Posted on November 17, 2017 by David Nugent

On Saturday lunchtime, Arsenal host north London rivals Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium, as the home side attempt to gain ground on their local rivals in the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger’s side are currently four points behind Spurs in the table. However, a victory in this game could change the whole complexion of the race for the top-four spots.

However, victories in north London derbies have been hard to come by for Arsenal in recent years, as the Gunners only win in their last seven encounters with Spurs was back in 2015 in a League Cup clash at White Hart Lane.

Home form a positive for Arsenal ahead of north London derby 0

Posted on November 14, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal have come in for some strong criticism in recent years. Criticisms of the Gunners include that they are too soft and need more bottle.

However, for all the criticism aimed at Arsenal, one positive still remains for the Gunners, that is their home form in the Premier League. That is highly encouraging for Arsenal fans, especially with the north London derby against Tottenham this weekend.

Very strong at the Emirates Stadium

Arsenal have won their last ten home games in the English top-flight, while also finding the net at least twice in their last eight games on home soil. That is an impressive home record for any team. Even Premier League leaders Manchester City cannot match that record.
