Arsenal struggled to make an impact on the West Ham goal in Wednesday night’s goalless draw. One of the few positives of the Gunners display was a decent display from central midfielder Jack Wilshere.
The England international was making his first Premier League start of the campaign after making all his starts this season in the League Cup and Europa League. It was, in fact, Wilshere’s first league appearance for Arsenal since May 2016 due to a loan spell at Bournemouth last season. .......Read more here.....

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. .......Read more here.....

It was the same old story for Arsenal against Southampton on Sunday as they were held to a 1-1 draw by their hosts. The stalemate means that the Gunners are 14 points short of leaders Manchester City having played a game more, which has pretty much brought an end to their slim title hopes.
The game itself was a direct antithesis to their loss against Manchester United last weekend. Arsenal created a huge amount of chances only to be stopped on the line by the marvellous David de Gea. On Sunday, Arsenal were not able to be toothless with their finishing as they rarely threatened to open their opponents up. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal and Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey seems to be a divisive figure amongst Gunners fans. The former Cardiff ace arrived in north London as a highly promising young player.
However, the midfielder’s Arsenal career has been blighted by injuries and lack of consistency. However, slowly but surely his productiveness has improved this season.
Yesterday’s assist for Alexandre Lacazette’s goal in the Gunners 3-1 defeat by Manchester United on Sunday means that he has now produced six assists and three assists in the Premier League this season. In fact, he has produced five assists in as many games in the Premier League. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Swansea on Saturday afternoon. When the Gunners went behind in the first half completely unexpectedly, it looked like it could have been one of those inexplicable defeats for Arsene Wenger’s men.
Second half goals from Sead Kolasinac and Aaron Ramsey were enough, in the end, to give the north London side the victory.
Home record is very encouraging
While Arsenal’s form has been unconvincing at times in recent years, the Gunners home form of late has been outstanding in the Premier League. For much of Wenger’s reign, Arsenal’s home record has been outstanding. .......Read more here.....
