Will Kieran Gibbs have to be loaned out if game time continues to allude him? 0

Posted on October 07, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs has played just 268 minutes of football in all competitions this season, with Spaniard Nacho Monreal keeping the Englishman confined to the bench on merit. The 26-year-old looked to be on his way to becoming Arsenal’s first-choice at left-back after hitting form during the first-half of 2014/15, but lost his place to Monreal and could well be considering his short-term future.

Gibbs is still surprisingly making the squad for the England national team, but has stiff competition from Danny Rose, Ryan Bertrand and Aaron Cresswell. If the Arsenal man continues to miss out on game time this season, he will find himself omitted from the Three Lions squad, which could mean he doesn’t make the European Championship squad for next summer.

Arsenal are the most in-form side in the Premier League 0

Arsenal’s victory over Manchester United on the weekend saw them start the international break second in the Premier League table after eight games, giving the Londoners a real boost in confidence in the title race. Two points adrift of league leaders Manchester City, no side have picked up as many wins in the last five games as the Gunners, and only one defeat suffered in seven league outings suggests real improvement in the top-flight.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are set to make January moves for forward pair Aleksandr Kokorin of Dynamo Moscow and Celta Vigo star Nolito.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was criticised during the summer for not bringing in another striker, or more importantly a top-class striker.

The Daily Mail seems to believe that the Frenchman will attempt to add to his strike force during the January transfer window, with the veteran boss supposedly sending out his scouts to find suitable additions. However, neither of the two players linked with the club could be described as world-class.


Aaron Ramsey continues to struggle for Arsenal 1

Posted on October 06, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey wasn’t at his best during his side’s 3-0 win against Manchester United this weekend with the Welsh international struggling to have an effect in the final third. He’s been below-par for the Gunners all season, and at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon his attacking attributes were subdued for his defensive traits instead.

The 24-year-old had one shot against United which was off target, while failing to create a chance on goal. He made tackles and interceptions to help keep the Red Devils at bay, but his box-to-box exploits aren’t shining through for Arsenal. Ramsey’s form was hit and miss last season, but this campaign has seen him being even more quiet in front of goal.

Coquelin believes Manchester United win proves the side are improving 0

Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin feels the Gunners’ weekend victory against Manchester United proves they are improving season after season. The talented Frenchman was happy to confound the critics by halting the Red Devils’ resurgence in the Premier League, and the win sees Arsenal two points off top spot after eight games.

“I think everyone expected us not to win and maybe we proved a lot of people wrong. I think inside the dressing room we knew we could do good things this season. We said it from the beginning that we could be contenders but we have to be consistent. I think the most difficult thing now is to carry on getting the results,” he said,

Gunners needed big win against Manchester United 0

Arsenal’s 3-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday at the Emirates Stadium was a much-needed one. The Gunners went into the game on the back of a woeful performance and result against Olympiakos in the Champions League.


The first 20 minutes of Sunday’s game encapsulated Arsenal at their flowing best. The Gunners moved the ball quickly and were accurate with their passing, something that has not been true for much of the season.

Aided by poor United defending, the Gunners struck three times in those first 20 minutes. Four players were at the heart of the action for the home side, as Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott had hands in the three goals.

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez continued his recent upturn in form with a brace against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon. The Gunners ran out 3-0 winners at the Emirates Stadium to move up to second in the Premier League table this weekend, and manager Arsene Wenger will be delighted to see the Chilean international back among the goals after a slow start to the new season.

Arsenal claimed a crucial 3-0 victory over top four rivals Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, as Alexis Sanchez grabbed a brace and Mesut Ozil scored in the first 20 minutes.

Arsenal took the lead with the first real attempt on goal on six minutes. Mesut Ozil put in a cross and Alexis Sanchez produced a superb back-heeled finish. Less than a minute later and the Gunners doubled their lead.

Ozil put Theo Walcott through on goal. The striker cut back inside and returned the ball to the German international, who slotted home past the helpless David de Gea in the United goal.

Arsenal 1/1 to win against Manchester United this afternoon 0

Posted on October 04, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal welcome the visit of Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium at arguably the worst time this season with the Gunners struggling for results of late. Arsene Wenger’s men have suffered three defeats in their last five games in all competitions, and are directly coming off the back of a loss in the Champions League in midweek.

There’s also questions about their home form, and how poor they have been in their own backyard this season. Arsenal have picked up just one win at the Emirates from four played in the Premier League and Europe so far, so hosting an in-form Manchester United side who could go top of the table with a win today isn’t ideal for the Londoners.

Arsenal host Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon, as the home side look to go level on points with the Red Devils in the Premier League.

The Gunners are looking to bounce back from a 3-2 home Champions League defeat against Greek champions Olympiakos last time out. However, Arsene Wenger’s side have hit some decent form in the Premier League in recent time times, having won four out of their last six top-flight games.

The side from north London have lost just three of their last 38 games at the Emirates Stadium, although one of those defeats came on the opening day of the season against West Ham.
