Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is reportedly open to a move away from the club in January in an attempt to boost his hopes of making it into France’s World Cup squad, but he will not force through a transfer.

Arsenal were able to at last return to winning ways in the league after a run of games in which they lost to Manchester United, before drawing with both Southampton and West Ham. This saw the Gunner fall out of the top four, with Liverpool, Tottenham and Burnley rising above them.

Arsenal target Nabil Fekir has admitted that he dreams of playing for a big Premier League club, which has put the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal on high-alert, with the latter reportedly a long time admirer of the young French forward.

Arsenal were forced to grind out a 1-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday as they finally got back to winning ways. Their loss to Manchester United and subsequent draws with Southampton and West Ham had threatened to derail the London side’s campaign, but the victory has gotten them back on the right track.

Arsenal produced a narrow 1-0 win against Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with a sublime Mesut Ozil effort the difference in the game.

The Gunners had the first attempt on goal on three minutes. Alexandre Lacazette played a one-two with Alex Iwobi before firing a low drive towards goal that Rob Elliot got down to save.

At the other end of the pitch, Petr Cech had to be alive to save Jamaal Lascelles far post header. Full-back DeAndre Yedlin saw an effort from 20 yards out fly well over the bar from the resulting corner kick.

Alexandre Lacazette has revealed why he joined Arsenal, with the Premier League club indebted to the influence of Arsene Wenger, with the manager a major reason behind the French striker joining the club in the summer.

Arsenal have been on a tough run of form in recent weeks as they have lost the momentum they had been building. A loss to Manchester United was followed by a draw with Southampton last Sunday. Charlie Austin scored early, and it took until the final few moments for Olivier Giroud to grab an equaliser.

Alexandre Lacazette is sure that his partnership with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will only improve 1

The partnership between Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil is one that is growing with every game that goes by. The Arsenal strikeforce could blossom into the most fearsome in the Premier League, and Lacazette believes that they will only get better as time goes by.

Arsenal were forced to stomach a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United last Saturday as Jose Mourinho’s side left the Emirates with all three points. The game itself was notable for being a performance in which the Gunners deserved all three points, but they were thwarted by an inspired David de Gea, who made a string of fine saves on the night.

Alexandre Lacazette has been explaining what qualities make Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil so good, with the strikeforce proving to be one of the deadliest in the Premier League this season. This is despite the fact the two have been almost constantly linked with a move away from the club.

Arsenal face a stern test in the form of Southampton on Sunday as they look to return to form. Their last game ended in a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United, with the visiting side leaving the Emirates with all three points.

The French national team assistant boss Guy Stephan has warned striker Olivier Giroud that he must play more games for the Gunners ahead of next year’s World Cup.

Giroud is considered an important member of the French squad. However, a lack of game time between now and June could affect his spot in the French team.

Needs to play games

Talking in the French media Stephan said: “Didier has had the opportunity to talk to him about it and now Olivier has to find a solution in the weeks to come.

“A loan deal in January? That’s up to him.

Arsenal must learn the defensive lessons from their loss to Manchester United 2

Three mistakes, three goals. That is all it took to beat an Arsenal side that, bar their three moments of weakness, were outstanding. 75% possession, 33 shots of which 15 were on target, and 12 corners displays just how good they were, while it also shows the outstanding contribution of David de Gea too.

Manchester United’s first goal saw Antonio Valencia capitalise on a loose Laurent Koscielny pass to drill home the opener, while Jesse Lingard made good use of Shkodran Mustafi dawdling on the ball. The killer-blow came via a slick counter-attack as Koscielny was easily brushed aside in the penalty area by Paul Pogba, who squared the ball for Lingard to tap home.

When Manchester City drew with Everton back in August, they were able to hit back with a run of games that has seen them not drop a single point in the league or in Europe since then. When Chelsea lost to Crystal Palace in October, they managed to embark upon a run in which they are unbeaten in seven Premier League games, winning six of them. In a few months time, Arsenal need to make sure that people are saying the same about their run of wins after losing to Manchester United.
