Arsene Wenger says his team have to prove that they are stronger now after the January transfer window 0

Posted on February 15, 2018 by Ben Darvill

Arsene Wenger has insisted that Arsenal must prove that they are stronger following the January transfer window as they saw a number of players leave, while they were replaced by some superb talent as the Premier League side looks to strengthen for the future.

Arsenal fell to a hugely disappointing defeat at the hands of Tottenham on Saturday as their Premier League campaign took a major blow.

It was once again a case of Harry Kane winning the game for Tottenham as he rose highest to net the only goal of the game. By contrast, both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette struggled to have an impact with the latter missing two chances at the end of the game.

Arsenal face a potential banana skin of a tie in the Europa League last-32, as the side from north London travels to Sweden to face Ostersunds. The Gunners will be looking to establish a good lead in this first leg tie, as the Swedish side have proven a dangerous opponent in the Europa League this season so far.

Ostersunds are currently in the midst of their pre-season prior to the start of their domestic league at the start of March. In fact, Graham Potter’s side have played just one competitive game in two months, which saw the home side record a 3-0 win over Trelleborg.

Arsene Wenger was keen to highlight the chances that striker Alexandre Lacazette was able to create rather than the two efforts he missed as Tottenham triumphed in the London derby as Arsenal’s Premier League top four hopes took a major blow.

Harry Kane was once again the hero for Tottenham as he rose above the competition to score the only goal of the game. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, by contrast, were unable to spark their side as Arsenal were condemned to their eighth defeat of the season.

Arsenal returned to type on Saturday afternoon, suffering a 1-0 defeat at arch-rivals Tottenham in the north London derby.

The Gunners kept the home side relatively quiet at Wembley in the first half of Saturday’s game. However, in the second half, Mauricio Pochettino’s side could have added to their one-goal lead.

Arsene Wenger’s side did have some limited chances in the second period. However, it would be a stretch to say that Arsenal deserved anything out of the game.

Big attacking players failed to turn up

Kane scores only goal in north London derby 0

On Saturday afternoon, Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game in the north London derby, in a defeat that could prove very costly to Arsenal’s Champions League hopes.

The first real threat on home goal came on nine minutes, as Shkodran Mustafi inadvertently prodded the ball towards his own goal ahead of Harry Kane, only for Petr Cech to save and put the ball out for a corner kick. Tottenham’s Eric Dier headed well wide of goal on 14 minutes from a corner kick.

Arsenal may have too many attacking players if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joins the club 0

Kevin Campbell has claimed that if the attacking players Arsenal have been linked with do join the club, then Arsene Wenger will have to find a way to play them all. If this is true, then it could leave the Premier League outfit even weaker at the back, with most of their problems stemming from their poor backline this season.

Alexis Sanchez is edging closer to a move away from Arsenal this winter as the biggest stage of the current window draws to a close. It seemed at first that he would join Pep Guardiola and Manchester City, but he is on the verge of becoming a Manchester United player instead.

Arsene Wenger has said Alexandre Lacazette losing his scoring touch was ‘inevitable’ 1

Arsene Wenger has admitted that Alexandre Lacazette losing his scoring touch in front of goal was ‘inevitable’ after the striker made it nine games in a row without scoring.

Arsenal fell to a disappointing 2-1 loss at the hands of Bournemouth on Sunday as their underwhelming Premier League season plunged to new lows. Hector Bellerin opened the scoring for the Gunners before Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe won the game for the hosts.

Bournemouth are now sitting in 13th-place in the league with 24 points, four clear of the relegation zone. Arsenal, on the other hand, are now eight points short of Liverpool in the final Champions League spot.

Chelsea and Arsenal finishes all square 0

Posted on January 10, 2018 by David Nugent

Chelsea and Arsenal played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

The home side had the first attempt on goal after just two minutes, as Alvaro Morata tried to poke an effort in at the near post. However, the Spanish striker could only find the side-netting.

The next attempt on goal did not come until the 20th minute when Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka dragged a long-range free-kick wide of goal. Two minutes later the visitors hit the Blues on the counter-attack, Jack Wilshere feeding the ball to Alexandre Lacazette, who fires wide of Chelsea’s near post.

Arsenal recorded a 3-2 win at Crystal Palace on Thursday night in an entertaining Premier League clash.

The Gunners dominated the early proceedings, with Calum Chambers seeing a shot from outside of the area blocked before Granit Xhaka fired over the bar from just outside the box.

The home side had their first real sight of goal on 16 minutes, as Yohan Cabaye’s effort from 20 yards out went just wide of Petr Cech’s post. At the other end of the pitch, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil combined well to find Xhaka in the area, but the midfielder saw his shot on goal blocked.

Liverpool draw sums Arsenal up 0

Arsenal’s Friday night 3-3 draw with Liverpool may have been a great watch for neutrals, but for fans of both teams, it summed up why they will not be winning a big trophy this season. For Arsenal, it perfectly summed up their struggles in recent seasons.

The bad side of Arsenal

Arsenal’s display against Liverpool showed the good and bad of the Gunners. The bad aspect was the team’s poor defensive displays, which sporadically appeared throughout each season for Arsenal.

In truth, it could have been much worse for Arsenal, especially when Laurent Koscielny put Mohamed Salah through on goal, only for Petr Cech to bail his team out.
