Ramsey may start in this afternoon’s FA Cup semi-final 0

Posted on April 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Having made six appearances in all competitions for Arsenal in the last seven weeks, midfielder Aaron Ramsey has become an important player for manager Arsene Wenger and is likely to keep his place in the engine room for this afternoon’s FA Cup semi-final clash with Manchester City as a result.

The Welsh international has endured a stop-start season due to injury and inconsistent form, but made his first Premier League start for a month in Monday’s 2-1 win over Middlesbrough and was singled out for praise by Wenger in the build-up to this weekend’s match at Wembley.

Arsenal ended a run of four straight away defeats in the Premier League by winning 2-1 at Middlesbrough on Monday, courtesy of goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

Middlesbrough had the first attempt on goal on four minutes, as Grant Leadbitter fired a long-range effort just wide of Petr Cech’s far post. Boro’s Spanish striker Alvaro Negredo was the next one to have a go at goal, firing well wide of Cech’s goal from long-range.

Arsenal FINALLY open talks with Jack Wilshere 0

Jack Wilshere’s long-term future at Arsenal is once again a hot topic as Gunners appear to be preparing to open talks with the England international over contract extension.

The 25-year-old midfielder has endured a tough time over the past few seasons with Arsenal due to recurring injury problems which have put a serious dent to his world-class potential, which Wilshere struggles to realise.

Having failed to hold down a regular place in the starting line-up, Jack Wilshere was sent on loan to Bournemouth last season, as Arsene Wenger wanted to give his playmaker a chance to get his career back on track and gain valuable playing time before returning to Gunners.

Arsenal’s top-four hopes were handed a major blow on Saturday afternoon, as the Gunners suffered a 3-1 defeat at West Brom.

The Gunners had the first shot on goal after six minutes. Alexis Sanchez played Nacho Monreal in down the flank and the full-backs cross looked to be heading to Theo Walcott before Foster smothered the ball.

The home side then forced Petr Cech into his first save of the game, as the veteran goalkeeper denied James McClean from a tight angle. However, from the resulting corner kick, the Baggies took the lead.

Arsenal avoided potential embarrassment on Saturday evening, as the Gunners hammered National League side 5-0 in the quarter-final of the FA Cup at the Emirates Stadium.

The visitors started in a spirited manner. However, it was the home side that had the first attempt on goal ten minutes. Hector Bellerin crossed to Aaron Ramsey on the edge of the area, only for the Welshman to side-foot an effort wide of goal.

The Gunners came close to taking the lead on 14 minutes, as Theo Walcott’s volley from the edge of the area was tipped onto the post by Lincoln goalkeeper Paul Farman.

Liverpool v Arsenal Premier League Preview 1

Posted on March 03, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal travel to Anfield on Saturday evening to face rivals for a Champions League spot Liverpool, in a massive game.

The home side’s form has stalled of late, as the Reds have won just once in their last seven outings. Last time out the side from Merseyside lost 3-1 at champions Leicester City. The Reds have lost three of their last five games in the league, although two of defeats have come away from home.

Jurgen Klopp’s side actually have a decent home record, having lost just once in 20 Premier League games on home soil. Liverpool have won three of their last five Premier League games at Anfield.

Aaron Ramsey could be back for Arsenal’s next Premier League game 0

Posted on February 24, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is nearing recovery from a calf strain suffered at the end of last month. Manager Arsene Wenger said it would be three weeks until the Welsh international returned from the knock, and Ramsey should have enough time before Arsenal’s next game to make his return.

The Gunners face Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday, March 4, and Arsenal are 11/4 to win against the Merseysiders. Ramsey is unlikely to start given his lack of match fitness and the stiff competition in the midfield, but having him as another creative and industrious option in the side gives Arsenal another dimension if things aren’t working on the pitch.

Sutton United v Arsenal FA Cup Preview 0

Posted on February 19, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal travel to face National League side Sutton United on Monday night in the FA Cup fifth round, as the Gunners look to avoid another embarrassing defeat.

The home side’s form has been poor of late in England’s fifth tier, as Paul Boswell’s side are 17th in the National League, having failed to win any of their last four games in the league.

In fact, the last time they recorded a victory was in the last round of the FA Cup, as they got the better of Championship Leeds in a 1-0 win. Sutton have also eliminated Cheltenham and AFC Wimbledon on the way to the fifth round.

Chelsea v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on February 03, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal face a tough task on Saturday lunchtime as the Gunners visit league leaders Chelsea in a game that could be massive in both team’s Premier League campaign.

The visitors are at the top of the Premier League, leading the table by nine points from second-place Tottenham and the third-place Gunners. The Blues have been in formidable form of late, winning 15 of their last 17 Premier League games.

Last time out Antonio Conte’s side could only draw 1-1 at top-four rivals, Liverpool. It could have been so different if Diego Costa would not have missed a 75th-minute penalty. Despite the draw, Conte’s team maintain a healthy lead at the top of the table.

Ramsey to miss upcoming Champions League and FA Cup games through injury 0

Posted on February 03, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed midfielder Aaron Ramsey will be out of action for three weeks with a calf injury. The Welsh international picked up the knock in Tuesday’s defeat to Watford and will now miss crucial games in February. At a time where the Gunners’ midfield has already been depleted, Ramsey’s absence means Arsenal are forced to start with a makeshift engine room in the coming days.
