I am usually very sceptical about Arsenal in general. Too many times the Gunners have flattered to deceive in recent seasons. However, I have to say Arsene Wenger’s team produced an encouraging display against AC Milan on Thursday night.
The 3-1 win on the night meant that the team from north London went through to the last eight of the competition with a 5-1 aggregate win, which in all fairness did flatter the Gunners.
Looking very lively .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a 3-1 win over AC Milan on Thursday night in the Europa League last 16 second leg, to win the tie 5-1 on aggregate.
The visitors came close to enjoying a dream start within the first minute, but Andre Silva’s effort from Fabio Borini’s cross was off-target. On five minutes, the Gunners had their first sight of goal, as defender Laurent Koscielny headed over from Henrik Mkhitaryan’s corner kick.
The Gunners experienced an injury blow on 11 minutes, as Koscielny sustained an injury and Calum Chambers replaced the French international. Milan ‘keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma was called into action on 26 minutes, as the youngster did well to keep out a near-post effort from Danny Welbeck. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a comfortable 3-0 victory over Swedish side Ostersunds on Thursday evening in the Europa League first knockout stage first leg.
The first chance of the game fell to Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck on eight minutes, as the England international headed wide from close-range at the far post. Two minutes later, Henrikh Mkhitaryan from the edge of the box blocked by an Ostersunds defender, while Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny also saw an effort on goal blocked.
The Gunners took the lead on 13 minutes. Ostersunds goalkeeper Keita fumbled an Alex Iwobi shot, only for Nacho Monreal to follow in and score from six yards out. Three minutes later, Keita parried an 18-yard powerful effort from Mkhitaryan. .......Read more here.....

FA Cup holders Arsenal suffered a surprise 4-2 defeat at Championship outfit Nottingham Forest on Sunday to exit the competition at the third round stage.
The home side had the first attempt of the game. Ben Brereton got between two Arsenal defenders but failed to trouble David Ospina. The Gunners hit back at the other end soon afterwards, as Theo Walcott looked through on goal. However, the forward scuffed his effort and the danger was gone for the home side. .......Read more here.....

On Tuesday night, Arsenal progressed to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup with a comfortable 1-0 win over West Ham, courtesy of a Danny Welbeck goal. The game was a slight non-event, as there was very little to talk about from an injury to Olivier Giroud and a chance of officials.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger also stuck to his rotation policy, which to be fair to the Frenchman has served him well this season. Weakened sides have helped the Gunners to qualify from their Europa League group, while also taking the north London side to the last four of the EFL Cup. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a 1-0 win over West Ham in the EFL Cup quarter-final on Tuesday night, with a Danny Welbeck goal enough to send the Gunners into the last four of the competition.
The opening period of the game was very lacklustre, as Arsenal passed the ball around, but to no avail. By the quarter of the hour mark, the Gunners had enjoyed 65 percent possession.
The first real threat on either goal did not come until 38 minutes. Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac cut in from the left and aimed for the far corner of the net, but the wing-back’s effort is well off target. .......Read more here.....

With these words coming directly from Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger it’s hard not to feel sorry for the Spanish midfielder.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger met the members of the press this Thursday to discuss the Saturday’s highly-anticipated North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur and one of the subjects he touched during his presser was also Santi Cazorla’s injury.
The 32-year-old Spanish midfielder has not featured since October 2016 after injuring his right Achilles tendon during a Champions League match against Ludogorets. .......Read more here.....

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. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal have a squad full of players that have represented their countries at different international tournaments.
The likes of Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny. Alexandre Lacazette, Mohamed Elneny, Mesut Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi are likely to feature at next year’s World Cup. However, a scarce amount of Arsenal players look like contenders for the England squad.
Gunners players must play
Arsenal do not currently have many English players in their first-team squad. Only Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott look like realistic prospects for the Three Lions squad. .......Read more here.....

On Saturday evening, Arsenal travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford, as the Gunners look to continue their recent good run of form.
Watford have enjoyed a decent start to life under new boss Marco Silva. The Hornets have suffered just one defeat in their seven Premier League games so far and that loss was against in-form league leaders Manchester City.
In fact, the Hornets are just a point behind the visitors in the Premier League table. A victory would move the Hertfordshire outfit above the boys from north London. .......Read more here.....
