Alexis Sanchez odds of 5/2 to join Manchester City in January 0

Posted on December 29, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s 3-2 victory at Crystal Palace on Thursday night was inspired by the brilliance of Alexis Sanchez. It was not the first time in his Gunners career that the Chilean has been the match-winner.

However, this season we have seen less match-winning displays from the undoubtedly talented forward. Speculation has again gathered pace that he may be on the move in January, with Manchester City favourites to sign Sanchez in January at 5/2.

Leaving in January or the summer

One thing is now clear Alexis Sanchez is leaving Arsenal in the near future. Whether his exit will be in next month or in the summer is of yet unclear.

Liverpool draw sums Arsenal up 0

Posted on December 23, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s Friday night 3-3 draw with Liverpool may have been a great watch for neutrals, but for fans of both teams, it summed up why they will not be winning a big trophy this season. For Arsenal, it perfectly summed up their struggles in recent seasons.

The bad side of Arsenal

Arsenal’s display against Liverpool showed the good and bad of the Gunners. The bad aspect was the team’s poor defensive displays, which sporadically appeared throughout each season for Arsenal.

In truth, it could have been much worse for Arsenal, especially when Laurent Koscielny put Mohamed Salah through on goal, only for Petr Cech to bail his team out.

Arsenal v Liverpool Premier League Preview 0

Posted on December 21, 2017 by David Nugent

On Friday night, Arsenal and Liverpool go head-to-head at the Emirates Stadium, in both teams last game before Christmas.

Arsenal will be hoping to leapfrog the visitors in the table, as the Gunners are one point behind the Merseysiders, who occupy fourth spot in the table.

The Gunners recent Premier League form has been erratic, as Arsene Wenger’s side have won just one of their last four league outings. However, that victory was last time out when the north London side defeated Newcastle 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal lack a killer instinct 0

The Arsenal players like to make life interesting for their supporters. Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium was a good example of that theory.

Arsenal looked in complete control in the first half and Newcastle barely threatened the Gunners goal. However, Arsenal failed to score a killer second goal.

As it is near the season of giving, the Arsenal defence decided to give the visitors some great opportunities to something from this game. Fortunately, for the Gunners, Newcastle could not find the net with a SAT NAV at the minute.

Lacking a killer instinct

Aaron Ramsey showing increased productivity 3

Posted on December 03, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal and Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey seems to be a divisive figure amongst Gunners fans. The former Cardiff ace arrived in north London as a highly promising young player.

However, the midfielder’s Arsenal career has been blighted by injuries and lack of consistency. However, slowly but surely his productiveness has improved this season.

Yesterday’s assist for Alexandre Lacazette’s goal in the Gunners 3-1 defeat by Manchester United on Sunday means that he has now produced six assists and three assists in the Premier League this season. In fact, he has produced five assists in as many games in the Premier League.

Mesut Ozil shining for Arsenal 1

Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil is a player that divides opinion. Some believe that he is a footballing genius, a player capable of producing great work of art on the pitch.

Others believe that he is a lazy and lethargic player, who does not give his team enough when really needed.

For me, he is a very talented player, who sometimes is hammered at times because he does not always produce his best form. However, that could apply to any player in world football.

Arsenal v Huddersfield Premier League Preview 0

Posted on November 28, 2017 by David Nugent

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to strengthen their position in the Premier League’s top-four.

The Gunners moved into the Champions League spots last time out by recording a 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor courtesy of a stoppage-time penalty from Alexis Sanchez.

Arsene Wenger’s side have been rather inconsistent of late. However, their recent Premier League form has been strong, as the Gunners have now won four of their last five games in the English top-flight.

Will Alexis Sanchez give his all for the rest of his Arsenal career? 0

Posted on November 27, 2017 by David Nugent

It is no secret that Arsenal’s Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez is looking to leave the club. It may be in January or it may be next summer. Either way it seems doubtful he will be a Gunners player next season.

The former-Barcelona ace has not been at his best this season. However, on Sunday afternoon he scored the winning goal from the penalty spot in a 1-0 win at Burnley. The goal was his third in his last five Premier League appearances.

Sanchez’s motivation questioned

Gunners 6/1 to win the Europa League 0

Posted on November 24, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal are the favourites to win the Europa League this season, despite a 1-0 defeat against Koln on Thursday night in their penultimate group game.

The Gunners have confirmed their place of winners of Group H with a game to spare. The north London giants are now odds of 6/1 to win the competition this season.

Arsene Wenger’s side have qualified in a relatively comfortable manner from a group most would describe as mediocre.

Koln themselves went into last night’s clash having failed to win any of their games in the Bundesliga this season. Peter Stoger’s side did up their game for the clash, in which Wenger decided to field a number of fringe players.

Arsenal now 9/4 to finish in the Premier League’s top-four 0

Posted on November 06, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal experienced another tough afternoon against a top side on Sunday, as the Gunners suffered a 3-1 defeat at Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger complained about the officials after the game. The veteran French boss complained that City’s Raheem Sterling dived for City’s first goal and that David Silva was offside for the third goal.

Both decisions could have gone either way in truth, though, even if Silva did look offside even without the benefit of a replay.
