Back Arsenal at 25/1 to record first Premier League away win this season 0

Posted on October 20, 2017 by Milos Markovic

Despite recording wins at both Europa League trips this season – at BATE and Crvena Zvezda this Thursday – Arsenal are yet to record a single away win in the Premier League.

Gunners boast a good record at Goodison with Everton winning only two of their last 10 Premier League home games against Arsenal and our trip to Liverpool couldn’t come at a better time, having in mind Everton’s early-season struggles.

Eight points after eight Premier League rounds is Everton’s worst start to a league campaign in last nine years which is a focus point that brings plenty of optimism ahead of our trip.

Arsenal have been suffering from a torrid time in the league with their campaign threatening to derail at this early stage. A 2-1 defeat to Watford destroyed the momentum they had been building and has caused many to once again label the club as being in crisis.

They now face a test in the Europa League against Red Star Belgrade on Thursday as they look to maintain their 100% record in the competition. However, it will not be easy for Arsenal as morale is clearly low, while the players are in poor form themselves.

Do Arsenal have any excuses this season? 0

For the last few years, Arsenal have always been missing a key element of their side. A few years ago it was a goalkeeper, then it was a world-class striker, and then it was a solid defence. For so many years they have disappointed their fans with paltry displays across the season that has ultimately seen them miss out on the Champions League for the current season.

Following consecutive defeats against Stoke and Liverpool, it seemed as though Arsenal’s old ghosts were haunting them again. They were already falling behind the top sides and their weaknesses had been exposed, both in their profligacy against Stoke and in their woeful defending against Liverpool. Another season of disappointment beckoned.

Arsenal’s rejuvenation is not down to just one player 0

The Premier League returns this weekend with a number of very interesting games to come. Arsenal take on Watford on Saturday as they look to continue a good run of form that has seen them rekindle their title ambitions, even though Manchester City remain some way clear of the London side at the top.

What is interesting is the fact that Arsenal have come from a position in which many had already written them off for the title. Of course, there is still a very long way to go before any side starts to seriously think about winning the league, but perhaps it was also far too early to rule the Gunners out.

Arsene Wenger offers important update on Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez futures 0

Posted on October 12, 2017 by Milos Markovic

The hot topic is about to get even hotter once you read Arsene Wenger’s most recent comments regarding the futures of Arsenal biggest stars Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of his team’s forthcoming clash with Watford this weekend, Gunners boss surprisingly admitted that selling both Ozil and Sanchez in January is possible.

With less than a year in their respective contracts with Arsenal, both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have been reluctant to tie themselves to a new deal at the Emirates.

Could Sanchez-Draxler January swap deal be on? 0

Posted on October 04, 2017 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are looking to swap wantaway Alexis Sanchez with PSG’s Julian Draxler in January. Sanchez is of course out of contract next summer and is not signing a new deal with the Gunners.

Meanwhile, Germany international Julian Draxler has found himself out of favour in Paris after the summer arrivals Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, two of the most highly-rated attacking players in Europe.

This deal would make financial sense

If we are looking at this from a purely financial sense, it would be a good deal. Arsenal will receive absolutely nothing if Sanchez leaves in the summer and it would take mega money to replace the Chilean.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal recorded a comfortable 2-0 win over Brighton at the Emirates Stadium, with goals from Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi enough to give the Gunners three points.

Arsenal hit the front straight away and came close to taking the lead in the first two minutes. French striker Alexandre Lacazette smashed an effort from long-range against Mat Ryan’s post.

The visitors offered their first real threat on five minutes. Pascal Gross fired in a free kick, which saw Izzy Brown glance towards goal, but wide of Petr Cech’s left post. Arsenal started to dominate possession and Alexis Sanchez saw a low effort saved comfortably by Ryan.

On Monday night, Arsenal recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory over West Brom at the Emirates Stadium, courtesy of a brace from Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal came close to taking the lead in the first five minutes. Alexis Sanchez saw a free-kick from the left edge of the area go just past Ben Foster’s right-hand post. The visitors went even closer to opening the score just a few minutes later.

Inter looking to tie up Mesut Ozil in January 0

Posted on September 23, 2017 by David Nugent

As one of my colleagues revealed earlier, Arsenal now look resigned to losing German playmaker Mesut Ozil. The 28-year-old’s contract is up next summer and it now looks highly unlikely he will sign a new deal.

Like teammate Alexis Sanchez, the Germany international has turned down numerous big money offers of a new deal at the Emirate Stadium and looks set to leave the north London club in the near future.

According to the Daily Mirror via TMW, ambitious Italian outfit Inter are set to hold talks in January with the playmaker about a summer move. Any move next summer would leave the Gunners empty-handed.

PSG could make January approach for Alexis 0

Posted on September 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to The Sun, Paris Saint-Germain could make an approach for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez when the January transfer window opens. The Ligue 1 side would be able to sign Alexis on a pre-contract deal due to him being a free agent the following summer, and Manchester City are reportedly worried that the French club could agree terms with the Chilean due to their greater finances.
