Former-Arsenal man Paul Merson has labelled the Gunners as ’embarrassing’ after they dropped below Burnley in the Premier League following the side’s 0-0 draw with West Ham in their last game.

It was their second draw in as many games and it has seen Arsenal floundering in the league once again. Their 1-1 draw with Southampton saw the side lose ground on those above them, while their 0-0 draw with struggling West Ham saw pressure pile on Arsene Wenger and the players.

Arsenal were held to a goalless draw by struggling West Ham at the London Stadium in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

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.

Charlie Austin scored early, and it took until the final few moments for Olivier Giroud to grab an equaliser.

Alexandre Lacazette has admitted that Arsenal’s title hopes are all but over, with the Premier League side needing a ‘miracle’ to catch Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola’s outfit someway better than every other team in the league this season.

Arsenal were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton on Sunday as their thin title hopes were reduced even further. Charlie Austin struck early for the hosts before Olivier Giroud levelled things up late in the game, and the two teams had to settle for a share of the spoils in the end.

Posted on December 13, 2017 by Milos Markovic

West Ham newly-appointed manager David Moyes is looking to further strengthen the Hammers squad during the January transfer window in order to boost his survival chances.

Having invested a good load of money on new signings during summer and despite boosting the squad by the likes of Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic, West Ham have endured a difficult start to new Premier League season.

The club hierarchy decided to part ways with Slaven Bilic and appoint former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager David Moyes, who managed to tighten up his side and make Hammers a more organized defensively.

Posted on December 12, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Arsene Wenger has said that he has ‘big respect’ for Olivier Giroud,  calling him a ‘very important player’ despite the forward struggling massively for game time this season. Giroud came off the bench to score yet again on Sunday, but this is unlikely to see the striker elevated above summer-signing Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal were held to a hugely disappointing 1-1 draw by a stubborn Southampton side on Sunday, with the Gunners poor on the day. While they kept the ball for large periods of the game, they lacked an incisive edge, with their final ball very abysmal.
