Mesut Ozil has not been given a final offer yet 0

Posted on December 12, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Arsene Wenger has claimed that Arsenal have not given Mesut Ozil a final contract, despite rumours that the German has been given a final offer by the Premier League outfit who are reportedly keen to try to either keep him for the long-term, or sell him to make some money in January.

Arsenal were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton at the weekend as they lost even more ground on leaders Manchester City. The London side are not 17 points short of City at the top, while they are a point below Liverpool in the last Champions League spot.

David Moyes is slowly making his stamp at West Ham with Hammers looking tougher and tighter at the back in their last couple of matches.

Former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager saw his great work pay off with a remarkable 1-0 win over Premier League champions Chelsea at the weekend and the Hammers are undoubtedly be highly motivated to take another big scalp when they welcome Arsenal at London Stadium.

A tense tussle is expected between the two London rivals with Arsenal under pressure to get back up on their feet following a frustrating 1-1 stalemate at Southampton.

Graham Potter can enhance his reputation against Arsenal 0

When you say the name Graham Potter, people would be forgiven for thinking that he runs a north west nightclub with bouncers by the name of Max and Paddy on the door. Oh sorry, that is the fictional Peter Kay character, Brian Potter.

However, in fact, Graham Potter is a former West Brom and Stoke defender who is making a big name for himself in managerial circles at Swedish club Ostersunds.

The Ostersunds boss will get to pit his wits against Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger in the last-32 of the Europa League following Monday’s draw.

Highly successful in Sweden

Arsene Wenger has insisted Olivier Giroud is not for sale in January 0

Arsene Wenger has insisted that Olivier Giroud will not be sold by Arsenal in the Premier League’s January transfer window, despite the star only really seeing game time coming off the bench this season.

Arsenal were forced to battle for the entirety of their game against Southampton as they looked to quickly bounce back from going a goal down, courtesy of the boot of Charlie Austin. However, despite their possession, they struggled to break down their hosts.

Arsenal’s fans would have been forgiven for tuning into the Champions League knockout round draw on Monday morning, such was their team’s long and uninterrupted affiliation with the contest. However, their fate was sealed from a draw after Europe’s premier competition had been decided. Arsenal were given Swedish side Ostersunds.

The Swedish team are not a household name, and the likelihood is that the team was met by a chorus of ‘who?’, which, in part, makes Arsenal’s game that much more difficult.

Arsenal cannot afford to lost to West Ham on Wednesday 0

It was not the result Arsenal were looking for on Sunday as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton in their Premier League game. The dropping of two points in conjunction with the fact that Manchester City can go 17 points clear of the Gunners means the weekend has been a hugely disappointing one.

Charlie Austin struck early for the hosts as he put Southampton ahead. Arsenal enjoyed a huge share of the possession, but they were awful when it came to any kind of incisive ball. In fact, they seemed more concerned with passing it sideways rather than going forward.

It was the same old story for Arsenal against Southampton on Sunday as they were held to a 1-1 draw by their hosts. The stalemate means that the Gunners are 14 points short of leaders Manchester City having played a game more, which has pretty much brought an end to their slim title hopes.

The game itself was a direct antithesis to their loss against Manchester United last weekend. Arsenal created a huge amount of chances only to be stopped on the line by the marvellous David de Gea. On Sunday, Arsenal were not able to be toothless with their finishing as they rarely threatened to open their opponents up.

Arsene Wenger’s tactics questioned by his own players following their defeat to Manchester United 3

Arsene Wenger’s tactics were reportedly questioned by his own players in the wake of their defeat at the hands of Manchester United last weekend, with the London side consigned to a damaging loss.

Arsenal dominated the game against Manchester United last Saturday as they played some of their best football of the season. 10 of Jose Mourinho’s side had no answer for the way the Gunners played, but David de Gea stepped up time and time again, making a string of outstanding saves as he reinforced the claims that he is the best goalkeeper in the world.

Southampton vs Arsenal: Back Gunners at 25/1 to Win 0

Arsenal travel to Southampton on Sunday looking to extend a fine record at St Mary’s.

Gunners have notched back-to-back wins at Southampton in 2017, beating Saints 5-0 in the FA Cup back in May before returning for a 2-0 Premier League victory in May.

Flying high on the back of a comprehensive 6-0 victory over BATE Borisov in the Europa League, Gunners will surely put in their best effort to make it three out of last three trips to Southampton.

Arsene Wenger’s men need a win to make a swift return to winning ways after a disappointing 3-1 slump against Manchester United and we fully expect a strong performance from Frenchman’s charges.

Arsenal closing in on Mesut Ozil breakthrough 0

Posted on December 07, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Arsenal are reportedly closing in on a breakthrough with Mesut Ozil over his contract despite it being reported that the German would leave once his contract was up. This comes as news has emerged that Manchester City would return with a bid for Alexis Sanchez.

Arsenal fell to a hugely disappointing defeat at the hands of Manchester United on Saturday as their three-game winning run was brought to an end. David de Gea was the hero on the day as he pulled off a string of fine saves to keep the Gunners at bay.
