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.
Arsenal host Manchester United in a huge game at the top of the table on Saturday with two of England’s biggest teams once again locking horns. With the two sides in desperate need of a win to ensure Manchester City do not get any further ahead, a victory over United could prove to be Arsenal’s biggest triumph yet.
As performances go this season, it is difficult to look past Arsenal’s dismantling of Tottenham as the most impressive by a Gunners side this season. They controlled the game from start to finish, with Spurs unable to gain any kind of foothold in the contest.
Arsenal face Manchester United in a huge game in the top half of the table as they look to continue their superb run of form. In the build-up to the game, they have been handed a major boost by talisman Alexis Sanchez.
Arsenal have been in fine form in recent weeks as they have forged their way up the table. A superb dismantling of arch-rivals Tottenham was followed by a battling win over Burnley before the Gunners obliterated Huddersfield in midweek.
Arsene Wenger claims his side have ‘offensive weapons’ ahead of their game against Manchester United 0
Arsenal hammered Huddersfield in a 5-0 win on Wednesday evening as they maintained their superb form in the Premier League. However, there were negatives from the game, with Alexandre Lacazette picking up an injury, but Arsene Wenger is confident his side have the weapons to win the game.
Arsenal easily brushed aside a Huddersfield outfit that ran leaders Manchester City very close in their last game, with a late Raheem Sterling goal enough to steal a 2-1 win. Goals from Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, and a double from Olivier Giroud saw the Gunners overcome their opponents with ease.
Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil is a player that divides opinion. Some believe that he is a footballing genius, a player capable of producing great work of art on the pitch.
Others believe that he is a lazy and lethargic player, who does not give his team enough when really needed.
For me, he is a very talented player, who sometimes is hammered at times because he does not always produce his best form. However, that could apply to any player in world football.
Arsenal recorded a 5-0 victory over Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night in the Premier League.
The home side took the lead with the first real attempt on goal after just three minutes. Aaron Ramsey produced a lovely flick put Alexandre Lacazette through on goal and the French striker slide the ball past Jonas Lossl in the Huddersfield goal.
Ramsey was involved in the next attempt on goal on ten minutes. The ball fell kindly to the Wales midfielder on the edge of the area, but he could only put his effort well over the bar.
Arsenal were able to claim a hard-fought 1-0 win over Burnley on Sunday as they backed up their victory over Tottenham the week before. Following the win, former-Arsenal star Paul Merson has claimed the side will earn a Champions League spot if they keep ahold of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
It was hardly the prettiest of wins on Sunday as Arsenal ground out a 1-0 victory over highflying Burnley. Sean Dyche’s men dominated the first-half, but Arsenal displayed their newfound backbone to grow into the game in the second-half, as they were well on top in the second 45.
It is no secret that Arsenal’s Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez is looking to leave the club. It may be in January or it may be next summer. Either way it seems doubtful he will be a Gunners player next season.
The former-Barcelona ace has not been at his best this season. However, on Sunday afternoon he scored the winning goal from the penalty spot in a 1-0 win at Burnley. The goal was his third in his last five Premier League appearances.
Sanchez’s motivation questioned
Arsenal battled to a 1-0 win over Burnley in their Premier League encounter on Sunday as the Gunners made it two wins from two in the league. Following their victory, Petr Cech has claimed that it was “a big win” over Burnley, and hopes to carry on their good form.
It was hardly the most convincing of wins, but it displayed Arsenal’s newfound backbone as they were dominated in the first half before battling back in the second, as they dominated their hosts.
Arsenal battled to a 1-0 win over Burnley in their Premier League game on Sunday as a late Alexis Sanchez penalty won the Gunners all three points. Following their second win in a row, Petr Cech has admitted that he hopes Arsenal have turned that corner and can fight for the title.
Arsene Wenger was able to mastermind a win on Sunday over a Burnley side that have been in superb form this season. Sean Dyche’s men have added an attacking intent to their game whilst maintaining their rigid defence, making them a very tough proposition to beat.
