Everton willing to spend big on Arsenal star 0

Posted on October 29, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Arsenal fought their way past a spirited Swansea side on Saturday as they ended October with a win.

Sam Clucas’ early goal was cancelled out by goals from Sead Kolasinac and Aaron Ramsey, with the Gunners able to show their own fighting spirit by battling back from a goal down to win 2-1.

The victory means they move onto 19 points, three clear of Liverpool in sixth and just a point behind Tottenham in third. It is incredible to think they were in an apparent crisis a few weeks ago.

Arsenal v Swansea Premier League Preview 2

Posted on October 27, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal will look to continue their recent decent run of form on Saturday afternoon, as they welcome Swansea to the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners have won four of their last six Premier League outings. Last time out in the Premier League, Arsene Wenger’s side hammered struggling Everton 5-2 at Goodison Park after the dismissal of Toffees midfielder Idrissa ‘Gana’ Gueye.

The win means that Arsenal are only behind fourth-place Chelsea on goal difference in the table. One major positive for the Gunners in recent seasons has been their home record. The team from north London are unbeaten at the Emirates in 11 Premier League games, having recorded ten victories, while also winning their last nine home games.

Nacho Monreal Arsenal’s unsung hero 1

It took a while for Spanish international defender Nacho Monreal to nail down a first-team spot at Arsenal. He had to job share at left-back with Kieran Gibbs for a relatively long period.

However, Monreal is now one of the Gunners unsung heroes. The Spaniard may have made an error against Everton in the 5-2 win at Goodison Park in the Gunners last Premier League game, but apart from that mistake, he has barely put a foot wrong this season for a player playing out of position.

Arsenal host Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup fourth round, as the Gunners look to avoid a potential banana skin.

The north London side head into the clash in good spirits after a 5-2 win at Everton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. The win came on the back of unconvincing performances and results against Watford and Crvena Zvezda.

Despite some disappointing displays of late, the Gunners have a very good home record at the Emirates Stadium. In fact, Arsene Wenger’s side have won their last 11 competitive games on home soil.

Is Aaron Ramsey set to return to top form? 0

Posted on October 23, 2017 by David Nugent

Aaron Ramsey seems to cause mixed opinions amongst Arsenal fans. For Wales, he seems to be a star player and vital to the Dragons fortunes. At Arsenal though, he has flattered to deceive at times and inconsistency has plagued his career.

However, of late Ramsey has upped his game for the north London side. In Sunday’s 5-2 win at Everton, the Welsh midfielder contributed a goal and an assist. Ramsey has now scored twice and provided three assists in eight appearances for the Gunners this season.

Back Arsenal at 25/1 to record first Premier League away win this season 0

Posted on October 20, 2017 by Milos Markovic

Despite recording wins at both Europa League trips this season – at BATE and Crvena Zvezda this Thursday – Arsenal are yet to record a single away win in the Premier League.

Gunners boast a good record at Goodison with Everton winning only two of their last 10 Premier League home games against Arsenal and our trip to Liverpool couldn’t come at a better time, having in mind Everton’s early-season struggles.

Eight points after eight Premier League rounds is Everton’s worst start to a league campaign in last nine years which is a focus point that brings plenty of optimism ahead of our trip.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has endured a frustrating campaign at the Emirates Stadium. In truth, the French international was always going to be back-up to international teammate Alexandre Lacazette this season.

However, the striker has stated that he came close to leaving Arsenal this summer. He told French TV channel Canal Plus: “I had the opportunity to leave [Arsenal],”

“I was very close to another English club, Everton. But I think I made the best choice.”

Should he have joined Everton?

Milan lead Arsenal in the race for Udinese’s Jakub Jankto 0

Posted on September 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

AC Milan are reportedly ready to make a bid for Udinese midfielder Jakub Jankto, according to Calciomercato via talkSPORT. The Serie A giants are said to be in the market for a central midfielder and have long been an admirer of Jankto. Milan could make an official approach when the January transfer window opens.

Arsenal and Everton have also been linked with the 21-year-old, who last season scored and created nine goals in 24 Serie A starts, and has contributed two goals in five appearances this campaign. The Gunners have long needed to strengthen their midfield, but Jankto may be unlikely to dethrone the likes of Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey currently.

On Saturday evening Arsenal travel to Stoke’s Bet365 Stadium in the Premier League, with the Gunners hoping to make it two wins out of two in the English top-flight.

Stoke endured a mixed pre-season campaign after losing star winger Marko Arnautovic to West Ham. An opening day 1-0 defeat against Everton at Goodison Park added to the Potters woes.

Mark Hughes sides have won just one of their last six games in the English top-flight. The Potters have also lost seven of their last 11 league games.

Posted on August 15, 2017 by David Nugent

Everton boss Ronald Koeman is plotting a move for Arsenal and England forward Danny Welbeck before the transfer closes, according to the Daily Mirror. The Toffees interest in Welbeck broke a few weeks ago.

However, Koeman may now make an official move for the forward, as it seems the Merseysiders are not going to sign Welbeck’s Gunners teammate Oliver Giroud, who now looks likely to stay in north London.

Everton need a focal point for their attack
