Arsenal vs. Everton Premier League Preview 0

Posted on February 28, 2015 by David Nugent

Arsenal will look to put that disastrous 3-1 midweek Champions League defeat behind them as they host Everton at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Arsene Wenger’s side suffered the defeat in the first leg of Europe’s elite competition at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night, which has left the Gunners on the brink of leaving the competition.

That European defeat aside, Arsenal have been in good form in the Premier League winning their last six top-flight games. The Gunners have also not lost in their last 20 games against Everton on home soil. However, the Gunners have not won in their last five Premier League games against Everton.

Arsenal’s attacking squad will face a challenge when they lock horns with Monaco in the Champions League second round this evening. The French Ligue 1 club are known for playing a counter-attacking style to get results, which leads to them boasting a very impressive defensive record.

The principality have conceded just one goal in the Champions League this season, and have shipped only one goal in their last 10 Ligue 1 games. Monaco will make life incredibly difficult for Arsenal, and Arsene Wenger’s men have often come unstuck to a side so defensively disciplined.

Arsenal hosts Monaco at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.

Arsenal heads into this game on the back of moving into third place in the Premier League at the weekend by recording a narrow 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace.

Goals from Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud gave the score line a comfortable look, but a stoppage-time goal from Glenn Murray made it a nervous finish for the Gunners, especially after Murray hit the post just after scoring.

Arsenal 5/6 to win away against Crystal Palace this weekend 0

Arsenal travel to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon, with the Gunners hoping to improve upon their away form in the league to ensure they can finish in the top-four. Arsene Wenger’s men have dropped points in four of their last six games on the road, but they can’t afford not to win against the Eagles.

The FA Cup holders are 5/6 to win against Crystal Palace, which they have done in their last four Premier League clashes. The visitors lost just once against Palace in their 11 past meetings in the top flight, so the history books favours Arsenal.

Arsenal travels to Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park on Saturday looking to move back into the top four with a victory.

The home side head into this game after suffering a 2-1 defeat at home to Liverpool in the FA Cup fifth round last time out. Last time out in the Premier League the Eagles drew 1-1 with Newcastle at Selhurst Park.

It seems that Alan Pardew’s honeymoon period at the club is over, as the Eagles have now won just one of their last four games in all competitions, after previously picking six straight wins in all competitions under the former-Newcastle boss.

Szczesny, Paulista tipped to start against Boro 0

London Evening Standard has suggested that Wojciech Szczesny and Gabriel Paulista will be handed starting roles in Arsenal’s FA Cup fifth round clash against Middlesbrough.

The Gunners did not exactly produce a perfect response to the defeat to Spurs in North London derby as they toiled against bottom-placed Leicester City, but managed to record a very important win with regards to their top 4 chances.

There will be no Premier League action for Arsenal this weekend as they will rather host Middlesbrough in the FA Cup fifth round, and that appears to be a perfect opportunity for Arsene Wenger to rest some of his star players.

Arsenal’s Theo Walcott wary of Middlesbrough’s threat ahead of weekend FA Cup clash 0

Posted on February 11, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott is taking nothing for granted when the Gunners face Championship side Middlesbrough in the FA Cup this weekend. The England international admitted Arsenal stood a great chance of retaining the trophy given how many elite clubs have been knocked out early on, but also believes the Londoners’ opponents won’t be an easy team to face.

“Middlesbrough will be tough. They are doing well in the Championship, and they might be very similar to Leicester. They will be a threat. We can’t take them for granted. We need to study their game very closely because if they watched our game here (against Leicester) they will fancy (beating) us,” said Walcott.

Arsenal hosts bottom of the table Leicester at the Emirates Stadium looking to bounce back from their weekend derby defeat by Tottenham.

The Gunners suffered a disappointing 2-1 defeat at White Hart Lane against their arch-rivals on Saturday, as England hopeful Harry Kane netted a brace after Mesut Ozil had given the Gunners a first half lead.

That defeat at Spurs ended the Gunners five game winning run in all competitions. The victory also saw Spurs move above Arsene Wenger’s team in the Premier League table. The Gunners could temporarily move into fourth spot, depending on Spurs result at Liverpool.

Arsenal visit north London rivals Tottenham in the early kick-off on Saturday looking to move back into the top four of the Premier League.

The Gunners are currently fifth, behind fourth-place Southampton only on goal difference. A draw would take Arsene Wenger’s side temporarily back into the top four, as the Saints visit struggling QPR later on in the day.

Arsenal have claimed five consecutive victories in all competitions and have won five out of their last six Premier League games. Their only defeat in the last six games came at Southampton’s St Marys.

Arsenal have their second North London derby this weekend against Tottenham Hotspur, and they are unsurprisingly the favourites to pick up all three points. The Gunners have been in fine form of late, and boast a good record over the Lilywhites in past meetings, but there is a lot riding on the game.

The winner on Saturday could take a big step in the race for a top-four finish, so there’s a lot to play for. Tottenham have turned their season around, picking up 19 points from a possible 25.They have lost just one league game in nine too, and haven’t been defeated at White Hart Lane since November.
