Posted on March 15, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to ITV, Aaron Ramsey will not travel with Wales to take part in the China Cup during the upcoming international break. The midfielder will instead go through a “small procedure” as Wales manager Ryan Giggs explained, and added that this would be a good moment for Ramsey to get it done.

He will, however, be in the squad for the rematch against AC Milan in the Europa League, and the procedure will be performed afterwards. It remains unclear what exactly the small procedure is.

The seemingly never-ending saga of Alexis Sanchez’s departure from Arsenal has another new chapter, as the Chilean superstar has revealed what Arsene Wenger said when attempting to convince him to stay at the Emirates.

According to Daily Mirror, Sanchez recently did an interview with a television station in Chile which is when the comments were made. The 29-year-old was with Arsenal for four years prior to making the switch over to Old Trafford in January.

Arsenal play the second leg of their Europa League clash against AC Milan on Thursday. They have a strong lead that shouldn’t prove too difficult to preserve and possibly add to at the Emirates, in order to secure passage into the quarterfinals. But given recent experiences, Arsene Wenger’s men will have to be on top of their game again to avoid any unpleasant surprises.

Speaking to the press ahead of the match, Wenger gave some updates on players’ fitness issues, as well as some information regarding their contracts situations.

Several players have had their fitness tested, and everyone except Alexandre Lacazette should be available for selection.

When Henrikh Mkhitaryan arrived from Manchester United in a swap deal for Alexis Sanchez, I was quietly optimistic that the Armenian international would be a good signing for the Gunners. The attacking midfielder made a promising start with a hat-trick of assists against Everton.

However, his form dipped slightly with the Gunners going through a rough patch. However, Mkhitaryan has now scored in consecutive games and produced strong performances against AC Milan and Watford on Sunday.

German defender Per Mertesacker has been a rock at the heart of Arsenal’s defence ever since joining the club, but now, it seems as if the 33-year-old is just about ready to hang up his boots due to the stress involved with playing the beautiful game.

During an interview with magazine Der Spiegel, Mertesacker made a handful of somewhat startling comments regarding what it feels like to play at this level. The 2014 World Cup winner and former Werder Bremen star has been at the Emirates since 2011 and has made well over 150 appearances for the North London club.

Arsenal are having an extremely busy period at the moment, being involved in the Carabao Cup final against MAnchester City and a two-leg Europa League fixture against AC Milan, and the injuries that are plaguing them are extremely unfortunate, if maybe not as much unexpected.

The Players

Arsene Wenger revealed that Alexandre Lacazette, who needed a quick surgery on his knee after the North-London Derby, has started training again, but he has ruled out the striker’s return before this month ends. His absence is definitely most felt in the Europa League where Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is cup-tied this season.

As Arsenal prepare for a key Premier League clash against Watford this weekend, we thought it’d be interesting to take a trip down memory lane in order to see how the last five games between these two sides have gone over the years.

While the stature of Arsenal Football Club alone would lead you to believe they’ve been dominant, they’ve actually lost three of their last five meetings against the Hornets – which is a record Arsene Wenger will be aiming to rectify on Sunday.

It’s no secret that Arsene Wenger is a few bad decisions away from completely alienating the Arsenal fanbase, and at this stage, many of us are already expecting it to happen. It’s been a dramatic fall from grace for a man who had the world at his feet just a few years ago, and now, the Frenchman has his back against the wall for what feels like the last time.

“It’s not the person they hate, they hate the manager who doesn’t deliver the performance. I can make that difference.”

Posted on March 09, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has had a rollercoaster career thus far, and at the age of just 26, it seems as if his future with the North London club is in doubt.

As reported by Evening Standard, the Englishman responded to comments made by manager Arsene Wenger that suggested the ball was in his court. Wilshere spoke after Arsenal defeated AC Milan 2-0 in their UEFA Europa League first leg tie.

“Yeah, but things have changed since then and all I can tell you is that we are no closer to sorting anything out.”
