Ex-Dortmund pair shines on home debuts for Arsenal 0

Posted on February 04, 2018 by David Nugent

The January transfer window was a successful one for Arsenal. The signings of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looked to be shrewd ones by Arsene Wenger.

The pair made their home Premier League debuts in the Gunners 5-1 demolition of Everton on Saturday evening. Both had big impacts on their maiden home games for the north London team.

Impressive contributions from both

Aubameyang came straight into the starting line-up despite the fight that the striker was supposedly ill. The Gabon international displaced France star Alexandre Lacazette and did what he did best by scoring on his debut, although replays showed that the striker was in an offside position.

On Saturday evening, Arsenal host Everton in the Premier League at the Emirates Stadium. The omens are good for a home victory, as the Toffees have been easy prey for the Gunners in recent seasons.

In fact, the side from north London have won 16 of their last 20 home games in all competitions, which is a fantastic record for the Gunners against any team.

The Merseysiders have caused Arsene Wenger’s problems at Goodison Park in the reverse fixture in recent campaigns. However, on home soil, Arsenal have enjoyed close to total domination.

Everton have a terrible recent away record

Arsenal might be without their most recent signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the forthcoming clash against Everton but they’re still installed as firm favourites to earn important three points in their top-four chase.

The Gunners have been given a huge blow in their pursuit of the Champions Place places last time out, having suffered a frustrating 3-1 defeat at the hands of Swansea. Arsene Wenger’s men have a big point to prove this time around as they look to get back in the running despite trailing Liverpool and Chelsea by eights points.

On Saturday evening, Arsenal will look to get back to winning ways as the Gunners welcome Everton to the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League.

Arsenal heads into Saturday’s game with the Toffees in unconvincing form of late. The Gunners have won just three of their last 11 games in the Premier League, a run that has left Arsene Wenger’s ten points behind fourth-place Chelsea.

The north London side produced a poor display last time out, as they suffered a 3-1 defeat at struggling Swansea City.

Much to Arsenal fans’ disappointment, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s Premier League debut is likely to be pushed to a further date after Arsene Wenger revealed that the former Borussia Dortmund superstar is slightly under the weather.

The Gunners boss said the £56 million Gabonese forward has been struggling with illness after completing his move to London this week.

“Aubameyang, I have to assess how well he is physically today and how well he feels. He had a fever so he could not practice a lot – he started yesterday, was still not completely well. I have to assess with the medical department how fit he can be.”, Wenger told in a press conference.

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott has completed a medical and agreed personal with Everton ahead of a £20million move to Merseyside.

Former club Southampton were also reportedly interested in signing the winger. However, it seems that the 28-year-old will be plying his trade on Merseyside in the near future.

Surplus to requirements at Arsenal

There is no question that Walcott is surplus to requirements at Arsenal. The fact that he has failed to start a Premier League game this season illustrates that perfectly. He was a regular in the cup competitions in Arsene Wenger’s fringe teams.

“If that is possible to get over the line, I would be delighted but obviously there is negotiations that are happening at the moment.

Gunners are said to be preparing a January bid for Hoffenheim central midfielder Kerem Demirbay in an effort to beat competition to the signature of the 24-year-old German international.

Borussia Dortmund product is attracting plenty of interest from around Europe with Serie A giants AC Milan and Premier League outfit Everton thought to be monitoring the highly-rated Hoffenheim star.

Milan have already been linked with Demirbay in the past and are expected to reignite their interest despite the ongoing problems with Financial Fair Play, following the high-spending summer.

According to the Metro, Arsenal are interested in signing Sevilla’s defensive midfielder Steven N’Zonzi. The 28-year-old has reportedly travelled to London with speculation rife that he could be returning to the English top-flight in January.

N’Zonzi first appeared in English football under Everton boss Sam Allardyce at Blackburn. Reports suggest that the Toffees may well be interested in signing the midfield enforcer.

Impressed in Sevilla

N’Zonzi impressed during his time in the heart of the Blackburn midfield and moved on to Stoke City. However, the defensive midfielder enjoyed an underwhelming three years in the Potteries.
