Alexandre Lacazette admits Arsenal need a miracle if they are to catch Manchester City 0

Posted on December 13, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Alexandre Lacazette has admitted that Arsenal’s title hopes are all but over, with the Premier League side needing a ‘miracle’ to catch Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola’s outfit someway better than every other team in the league this season.

Arsenal were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton on Sunday as their thin title hopes were reduced even further. Charlie Austin struck early for the hosts before Olivier Giroud levelled things up late in the game, and the two teams had to settle for a share of the spoils in the end.

Posted on December 13, 2017 by Milos Markovic

West Ham newly-appointed manager David Moyes is looking to further strengthen the Hammers squad during the January transfer window in order to boost his survival chances.

Having invested a good load of money on new signings during summer and despite boosting the squad by the likes of Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic, West Ham have endured a difficult start to new Premier League season.

The club hierarchy decided to part ways with Slaven Bilic and appoint former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager David Moyes, who managed to tighten up his side and make Hammers a more organized defensively.

Arsene Wenger has ‘big respect’ for Olivier Giroud 0

Posted on December 12, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Arsene Wenger has said that he has ‘big respect’ for Olivier Giroud,  calling him a ‘very important player’ despite the forward struggling massively for game time this season. Giroud came off the bench to score yet again on Sunday, but this is unlikely to see the striker elevated above summer-signing Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal were held to a hugely disappointing 1-1 draw by a stubborn Southampton side on Sunday, with the Gunners poor on the day. While they kept the ball for large periods of the game, they lacked an incisive edge, with their final ball very abysmal.

Arsene Wenger has claimed that Arsenal have not given Mesut Ozil a final contract, despite rumours that the German has been given a final offer by the Premier League outfit who are reportedly keen to try to either keep him for the long-term, or sell him to make some money in January.

Arsenal were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton at the weekend as they lost even more ground on leaders Manchester City. The London side are not 17 points short of City at the top, while they are a point below Liverpool in the last Champions League spot.

West Ham v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on December 12, 2017 by David Nugent

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.

West Ham vs Arsenal: Gunners 25/1 Betting Odds to Win 0

Posted on December 12, 2017 by Milos Markovic

David Moyes is slowly making his stamp at West Ham with Hammers looking tougher and tighter at the back in their last couple of matches.

Former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager saw his great work pay off with a remarkable 1-0 win over Premier League champions Chelsea at the weekend and the Hammers are undoubtedly be highly motivated to take another big scalp when they welcome Arsenal at London Stadium.

A tense tussle is expected between the two London rivals with Arsenal under pressure to get back up on their feet following a frustrating 1-1 stalemate at Southampton.

Graham Potter can enhance his reputation against Arsenal 0

Posted on December 11, 2017 by David Nugent

When you say the name Graham Potter, people would be forgiven for thinking that he runs a north west nightclub with bouncers by the name of Max and Paddy on the door. Oh sorry, that is the fictional Peter Kay character, Brian Potter.

However, in fact, Graham Potter is a former West Brom and Stoke defender who is making a big name for himself in managerial circles at Swedish club Ostersunds.

The Ostersunds boss will get to pit his wits against Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger in the last-32 of the Europa League following Monday’s draw.

Highly successful in Sweden

Arsene Wenger has insisted Olivier Giroud is not for sale in January 0

Posted on December 11, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Arsene Wenger has insisted that Olivier Giroud will not be sold by Arsenal in the Premier League’s January transfer window, despite the star only really seeing game time coming off the bench this season.

Arsenal were forced to battle for the entirety of their game against Southampton as they looked to quickly bounce back from going a goal down, courtesy of the boot of Charlie Austin. However, despite their possession, they struggled to break down their hosts.

There is no room for error in Arsenal’s Europa League last-32 game 0

Posted on December 11, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Arsenal’s fans would have been forgiven for tuning into the Champions League knockout round draw on Monday morning, such was their team’s long and uninterrupted affiliation with the contest. However, their fate was sealed from a draw after Europe’s premier competition had been decided. Arsenal were given Swedish side Ostersunds.

The Swedish team are not a household name, and the likelihood is that the team was met by a chorus of ‘who?’, which, in part, makes Arsenal’s game that much more difficult.

Arsenal target Goncalo Guedes 0

Posted on December 11, 2017 by Milos Markovic

North London club are said to be exploring the prospect of approaching the Paris Saint-Germain loanee Goncalo Guedes.

The 21-year-old star joined French champions for a fee believed to be around £26 million this January but failed to break into the first team in Paris.

Following only 13 first-team appearances Guedes was sent on loan to Valencia for the 2017/18 season as he was unable to fight for his place in the starting XI against the likes of world-record signings Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
