Coquelin picks up hamstring injury against Bournemouth 0

Posted on September 10, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger revealed midfielder Francis Coquelin picked up a hamstring injury in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth and will miss their Europa League clash on Thursday and Sunday’s Premier League meeting with defending champions Chelsea.

Wenger also admitted midfielder Jack Wilshere is close to returning for the Gunners and could well step in for the injury Frenchman in the coming weeks. “He has a hamstring (problem). I don’t know how bad it is but he’s certainly out for next week’s game,” he said, reports

Welbeck and Lacazette could prove a handy double act for Arsenal 0

Arsenal recorded a very comfortable 3-0 win over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon. I predicted the Cherries would be a good team for the Gunners to face. Eddie Howe’s side proved to be more than obliging opposition.

They like to play football but are woefully naïve at defence. However, that should not take anything away from Arsenal’s attacking endeavours from the likes of Mesut Ozil, Danny Welbeck and Alexandre Lacazette.

The former pair particularly deserves credit for the win. Welbeck is much maligned by Arsenal fans, but on his day, he can be a real handful for opposition defences. The England international deserved his brace against Bournemouth. His assist was not bad either.

After Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck scored twice in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth, manager Arsene Wenger hailed the English international and has tipped him for a prolific season after proving his ruthlessness in front of goal at the Emirates Stadium, reports talkSPORT.

The 26-year-old opened the scoring in the sixth minute against Bournemouth, courtesy of an assist from Sead Kolasinac. Welbeck went from scorer to creator inside of half an hour, setting up a goal for Alexandre Lacazette. The English international then scored his second of the game in the 50th minute, with Aaron Ramsey taking the assist.

Wenger tells Sanchez to win back the supporters 0

After Alexis Sanchez returned for Arsenal in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth, which resulted in a mixed reputation from the supporters, manager Arsene Wenger has told the 28-year-old to win back the fans through his performances.

“We have to accept those responses from people. I don’t know why [there were jeers]. The best way to get people on your side is to perform. I had a chat with him after the game and he didn’t look unhappy. Maybe it’s because he wanted to score. The interpretation of the attitudes is always very dangerous,” Wenger said, reports talkSPORT.

Arsenal record comfortable victory over Bournemouth 0

Arsenal recorded a comfortable 3-0 win over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with Danny Welbeck grabbing a brace and Alexandre Lacazette also getting on the scoresheet.

The Gunners took the lead on six minutes with the first real attempt on goal of the game. Sead Kolasinac crossed and found Danny Welbeck, whose effort off the shoulder wrong-footed Asmir Begovic in the Bournemouth goal.

The home side had the next attempt on goal on 13 minutes. Kolasinac strode forward again but lost the ball. The ball then broke for Granit Xhaka 30 yards out and the Swiss star saw a first-time effort parried by Begovic.

Ray Parlour: Arsenal can’t afford to lose against Bournemouth 0

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour believes the supporters could turn on the Gunners in Saturday’s Premier League clash against Bournemouth if the Cherries get something from the game.

The 44-year-old, who played for Arsenal between 1992 and 2004, called this weekend’s clash “such an important game”, given how poorly the London club have started the season.

Currently 16th in the Premier League table with three points from as many games, coming off the back of defeats against Stoke City and Liverpool, Arsenal have started the new season poorly.

Arsenal will look to get their Premier League campaign back on track on Saturday when the Gunners host Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners have opened their campaign with just one win and two defeats in the Premier League. Last time out Arsenal suffered a 4-0 hammering at Liverpool in the English top-flight.

Arsene Wenger’s side have come in for major criticism for their last two displays and the team from north London are in need of a victory against a struggling Cherries side.

Sead Kolasinac should play at left wing-back for Arsenal 0

In a month where everything seemed to go wrong for Arsenal, summer signing Sead Kolasinac won the Gunners Player of the Month.

In truth, there were slim pickings among the Gunners players for the award. However, the former Schalke player managed to win the award, despite only playing in two of the team’s three league games this season.

The fans vote was maybe a vote of no confidence in the players that appeared in the 4-0 hammering at Liverpool, than a vote of confidence for the Bosnia and Herzegovina star.

Made a mixed start to his Arsenal career

Newcastle preparing bid for Jack Wilshere 0

Posted on August 13, 2017 by David Nugent

Newcastle United are preparing a bid for Arsenal’s out-of-favour central midfielder Jack Wilshere, according to the Daily Express. The report also claims that Wilshere has accepted the fact that he is now surplus to requirements in north London.

The 25-year-old’s contract in north London expires next summer and it seems unlikely that a chance offer will be forthcoming.

Wilshere needs to prove himself

In his teen years, Wilshere was supposedly destined to be a star. However, the midfielder’s problems with injuries are well documented, as close to a decade Wilshere has struggled to stay away from injuries.

Maybe it is time for Jack Wilshere to leave Arsenal permanently 0

The Daily Mail website was running a story about Sampdoria bidding £9million to sign Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere this summer. However, the Italian club are worried they may not be able to meet the Gunners financial demands.

The midfielder has just 12 months left on his contract in north London. It would not be a major surprise if he leaves the club.

He spent last season on loan at Bournemouth and made 27 appearances before unsurprisingly his season was cut short through injury. In reality, he failed to really shine for the Cherries, although he did produce a few decent performances
