Santi Cazorla’s injury “worst I’ve ever seen” 0

Posted on November 16, 2017 by Milos Markovic

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.

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.

Will any Arsenal players be in England’s World Cup squad? 0

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.

Watford v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

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.

Wenger facing another contract saga with Ramsey and Welbeck 0

After seeing Arsenal fail to agree new deals with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, it appears Arsene Wenger is desperate to avoid a similar situation with the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck, whose contract will enter the last year at the end of the season, reports the Daily Star.

“Yes, that is something we want to address. Both of them are in a good moment for us. But this season there were 107 players in the Premier League who got into the final year of their contract for the first time and you will see that more,” said Wenger.

Shame that injury has hampered Welbeck’s strong campaign 0

Arsenal and England forward Danny Welbeck is probably one of the most maligned players in the English games. The 26-year-old is often unfairly criticised because the football he produces is not always the prettiest.

I doubt that even Welbeck would believe he is one of the most talented players in the world. However, he does have talent, a good attitude and a knack for scoring goals. In fact, Welbeck is the clubs top goalscorer this season with three goals.

The striker had made a very strong start to the season for the Gunners. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is obviously a fan, even if some Arsenal fans are not.

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.

Chelsea and Arsenal produce a stalemate at Stamford Bridge 2

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.

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.

Wenger: Welbeck gets stronger and stronger 0

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.
