According to the London Standard, Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck could make his return from injury against Tottenham in the north London derby on Saturday lunchtime.

The forward has been sidelined since mid-October with a hamstring injury. The problem has meant that the 26-year-missed out on the England squad for friendly international games against Germany and Brazil.

In-favour at the start of the campaign

Danny Welbeck has not always been a regular starter in Arsenal’s first-team since arriving from Manchester United back in 2014. He has been in and out of the Gunners starting line-up.

In what is surely one of the most surprising transfer rumour this week, Premier League giants Arsenal and Chelsea are said to be locked in a battle for former Liverpool shot stopper Peter Gulasci.

The Hungarian ‘keeper spent five years of his career at Anfield but failed to make a single appearance for the Reds. The 27-year-old enjoyed various loan spells away at Hereford, Tranmere and Hull City before leaving the Merseyside club in 2013 when his contract expired.

The British media has it that Arsenal have stepped in a three-way battle with Premier League rivals Manchester City and Chelsea for a highly-rated Barcelona talent Abel Ruiz.

The 17-year-old Ruiz is a versatile forward who can play on either flank or in the heart of attack and is eyed as one of the biggest talents emerging from the Catalan club.

Contracted to Barcelona until 2019, Abel Ruiz is said to be under a £3 million buy-out clause. The affordability of such an exciting talent has alarmed the Premier League big guns who are vying for Ruiz’s signature, the Mirror has reported.

Do Arsenal have any excuses this season? 0

For the last few years, Arsenal have always been missing a key element of their side. A few years ago it was a goalkeeper, then it was a world-class striker, and then it was a solid defence. For so many years they have disappointed their fans with paltry displays across the season that has ultimately seen them miss out on the Champions League for the current season.

Following consecutive defeats against Stoke and Liverpool, it seemed as though Arsenal’s old ghosts were haunting them again. They were already falling behind the top sides and their weaknesses had been exposed, both in their profligacy against Stoke and in their woeful defending against Liverpool. Another season of disappointment beckoned.

Arsenal host West Brom at the Emirates on Monday night, as the Gunners look to continue their positive momentum in the Premier League.

Arsenal heads into this clash on the back of a 1-0 win over League One Doncaster in the League Cup in midweek. However, it was a 0-0 draw at champions Arsenal last time out in the Premier League that will send the Gunners out in good spirits.

Arsene Wenger’s side are now four games unbeaten in all competitions, having recorded three victories. The latest wins have certainly lifted the doom and gloom slightly of the fans.

Gunners produced un-Arsenal like display to draw at Chelsea 0

I have to say going into yesterday’s London derby against champions Chelsea I did not fancy the Gunners to get the win. However, a draw was always achievable if Arsenal decided to abandon Arsene Wenger’s football philosophy.

I thought that was very unlikely, yet low and behold the Gunners produced a very solid, always perfect away performance to draw 0-0 with the champions. The only thing missing was a goal on the counter-attack, which Aaron Ramsey came so close to scoring, but hit the post.

On Sunday afternoon, Chelsea and Arsenal played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge. The biggest talking about the game turned out to be a late red card for Chelsea defender David Luiz.

Chelsea made a bright start to the game, with former Blues goalkeeper Petr Cech having to produce good saves from Victor Moses and then Pedro. The home side threatened again, as Cesc Fabregas played a one-two with Willian before the Spaniard fire an effort towards goal only for a combination of Danny Welbeck and Cech at the near post to snub out the danger.

Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, and are big underdogs given their poor form on the road this season.

However, the Gunners have picked up wins against the Blues at home and in neutral venues which could give them hope of seeing past Antonio Conte’s side to boost their title hopes.

As for the hosts and defending champions, Conte’s Chelsea side are currently third in the Premier League table with nine points from four games this season, having won three on the bounce ahead of this weekend’s meeting after losing on the opening day.

Henry: Arsenal must beat Chelsea to prove title credentials 0

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry says the Gunners have to win against the defending champions in Sunday afternoon’s Premier League at Stamford Bridge to prove they are still a top side. The former striker believes Arsenal need to “show they mean business” by beating the best sides in the division, as that’s the only way their hopes of winning the title will be taken seriously.

Ozil out for Chelsea clash 2

Posted on September 17, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil will miss Sunday afternoon’s Premier League clash with Chelsea through injury, reports the Express. The German international trained away from the squad with six other first-team players on ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash, and still hasn’t recovered in time for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

Arsene Wenger admitted the 28-year-old was a doubt along with midfielder Aaron Ramsey for this weekend’s meeting with the Premier League defending champions, meaning the Gunners boss will be forced into some changes. Without Ramsey in the side, Mohamed Elneny or Francis Coquelin could deputise. Without Ozil for Sunday’s game, Danny Welbeck could replace him.
