Ramsey “gutted” after Arsenal drop valuable points against Southampton 1

Posted on February 03, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey admitted he and the squad were “gutted” to have failed to beat Southampton given their dominance over the 90 minutes, and has called on the side to bounce back fast in their quest to win this season’s Premier League title.

The Gunners played out a goalless draw with Southampton, who were grateful for the goalkeeping heroics of Fraser Forster, but Ramsey feels they have let themselves down at a crucial period given their poor form that had preceded Tuesday night’s meeting.

The goals have dried up for Arsenal of late 0

Arsenal’s goalless draw with Southampton on Tuesday night was not only the four consecutive game they have failed to win in the Premier League, but the third consecutive game in the division they have failed to score in. The Gunners are having a woeful start to 2016, and the goals appear to have completely dried up of late despite having nearly their strongest squad available.

In mid-January, Stoke City shut Arsenal out at the Britannia Stadium in a game manager Arsene Wenger seemed content to take a point. They followed that up with a 1-0 home defeat to Chelsea, making it six league meetings with the Blues without scoring, and Southampton were the next side to pick up a clean sheet against Arsenal. Wenger wasn’t content with a point this time out, however.

Here we go again with Arsenal’s latest title bid 1

I am not sure why Arsenal fans get their hopes up of winning the Premier League title every season, as the Gunners always seem to let them down. Last night’s goalless against Southampton at the Emirates Stadium was just indicative of Arsenal in recent seasons.

The nearly men

They have become nearly men and seem to throw away good opportunities, both to win games and titles. A few weeks ago the Gunners were top of the table and now they are fourth in the Premier League table, five points off leaders Leicester.

Southampton made late bid for Oxlade-Chamberlain 0

Premier League high flyers Southampton attempted to sign Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on winter transfer deadline day, according to the latest reports.

The Saints were looking to sign their former player on loan until the end of the season, but the Gunners rejected their approach as Arsene Wenger needs the England starlet as cover for the final stretch of the season.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled for playing time of late, falling behind Joel Campbell in the pecking order, and it is fair to say that he has been unable to live up to the hype that surrounded his move to the Emirates back in 2011.

Arsenal were held to a frustrating goalless draw against Southampton at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday, as Saints ‘keeper Fraser Forster pulled-off a string of brilliant saves to keep the scores level.

Southampton had the first attempt on goal after four minutes, as James Ward-Prowse’s whipped free-kick from the left evaded everybody, but was saved comfortable by Petr Cech in the Gunners goal.

The home side’s first effort on goal arrived on 11 minutes. Alexis Sanchez fires a superb 40 yard through ball to Mesut Ozil, who produces a sublime touch and in the same movement fires an effort at goal that is saved by the legs of Fraser Forster.

Arsenal academy player Yassin Fortune has just put pen to paper on his first professional contract with the Premier League giants, but details of the deal were not disclosed.

The Frenchman thus became the second youngster to sign a professional contract at the Emirates, with talented winger Aaron Eyoma having signed on Monday.

Fortune only joined the Gunners last summer, arriving from Lens together with Jeff Reine-Adelaide and he has already shown a great deal of potential, quickly adapting to the new surroundings.

Arsenal 4/5 to see past Southampton in tonight’s Premier League clash 0

Posted on February 02, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal welcome Southampton to the Emirates Stadium tonight, and are hoping they can get revenge against Ronald Koeman’s side after having been well-beaten by the Saints on Boxing Day. Victory for the Gunners could see them finish the day joint-top on points so there’s plenty to place for.

However, Southampton are no pushovers, and are in good form to threaten an upset. The visitors are 8th in the Premier League table after 23 games, and are coming off the back of three consecutive wins. They won 4-0 against Arsenal in the reverse fixture, and were victorious in their most recent away game.

Wenger says Alex Iwobi could get more game time for Arsenal this season 1

Posted on February 01, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes young forward Alex Iwobi is progressing well in his development, and could well be given more game time with the first-team this season as a result of the form he’s shown when called upon. The 19-year-old delivered a good performance in Arsenal’s 2-1 win against Burnley in the FA Cup fourth round in only his third start for the Londoners. His manager was glowing in his praise of the teenager, and believes he’s confounded his critics who dismissed his potential in the past.

Chambers willing to remain patient for opportunities with Arsenal 0

Posted on February 01, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers recently revealed how much he’s learning from the players in training and how hard he’s working to compete for a starting place. The England international has found game time limited, but has been training to adjust to being a holding-midfielder, and he believes that could see him getting more action in the second-half of the season.

“If you are (able to play) in different positions it gives you more of a chance to play and having the knowledge where you want the ball in different positions. I’m just concentrating on getting games and training hard and trying to get myself in the squad and the team. I want to be in the first team now. I’m training as hard as I can and learning. I’m pleased with how things have gone,” he said.
