Arsenal must start performing for 90 minutes 3

Posted on January 19, 2014 by David Nugent

Arsenal defeated Fulham 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium yesterday to retain the lead at the top of the Premier League table. The first half was goalless and to be slightly harsh on the Gunners they only produced a good performance for 45 minutes.

Half

This has become a theme in recent weeks for Arsenal, winning but not playing that well for 90 minutes. It is a sign of a good team that the Gunners can win without playing well at times. However, Arsenal have been getting away with not playing at their best for 90 minutes because they are playing some of the poorer teams.

A 2-0 win against London rivals Fulham was enough to stretch Arsenal’s unbeaten run to an impressive six Premier League games – in which time the Gunners have conceded just two goals.

As a result, Arsene Wenger’s men remain top of the division after 22 games, and title talk remains on the lips of most Arsenal fans who dare to dream of a Premier League crown 10 years on from their infamous ‘invincibles’ campaign that saw them go an entire league season unbeaten – winning the league in style.

Arsenal retained their spot at the top of the Premier League table, courtesy of a 2-0 victory over Fulham at the Emirates Stadium, with Santi Cazorla claiming a brace.

The Gunners had their first attempt on goal after just three minutes, as centre-back Per Mertesacker headed well wide of goal. The home side continued to dominate and on seven minutes winger Serge Gnabry fired wide after finding space for himself.

On ten minutes, Santi Cazorla’s effort from just outside the penalty area was blocked by the Cottagers defence. On 17 minutes Gnabry again fired an effort wide of goal from just outside the penalty area.

Arsenal host Fulham at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday looking to stay at the top of the Premier League table for another week. The Gunners head into the game with a good home record, having claimed seven victories, two draws and lost just once at home this season in the top-flight.

Arsene Wenger’s men will be looking for their sixth consecutive victory and will be confident of taking maximum points. The visitors have a terrible record against Arsenal. The Cottagers have only beaten the Gunners once in their last ten meetings.

Wenger rules out Berbatov capture ahead of Fulham clash 0

Posted on January 17, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has unsurprisingly revealed has no intention of signing Fulham forward Dimitar Berbatov, despite the rumours suggesting otherwise.

The former Manchester United man has been linked with Arsenal since the summer, but there’s been little giving the story any substance – something Wenger alluded to in a recent interview.

Considering Berbatov will turn 33 this month there’s seemingly no value to take him even on the short-term. His form has been sporadic this season in a struggling Fulham side, and scoring just four goals in 16 games isn’t the type of return Wenger would want from his forwards.

This Saturday, Arsene Wenger’s men will come up against Premier League strugglers Fulham at the Emirates. The Cottagers have the worst defence in the top flight with 46 goals conceded in 21 games. As a result, Arsenal are 2/9 to beat Fulham convincingly.

Rene Meulensteen’s side have lost 14 league games this season, but their recent form could well mean victory for the Gunners is not a formality. Fulham have won three league games from their last seven, while recently enjoying a 3-0 win against Norwich City in the FA Cup third round replay.

Why would Arsenal sign Berbatov? 4

The rumour mill is in force with talk of Arsenal preparing a £2M bid for Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov, but such speculation is surely highly inaccurate. The two parties were linked at the start of the season as Arsenal were reportedly lacking a striker, but manager Arsene Wenger reiterated he was not in the market for another striker, and even less so for Berbatov.

Wenger has always put faith in his current squad, and added that Theo Walcott, Lukas Podolski, Nicklas Bendtner, and Olivier Giroud are enough options in attack. But with the latter two currently injured, and the match-fitness questionable of Podolski, while Walcott plays as a right-sided forward, it means they are thin on options.

Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov looks set to leave Fulham in the January transfer window, according to the player’s official representative Emil Dantchev.

After scoring 15 goals in his first season at Craven Cottage, the 32-year-old has suffered a serious dip in form and has only netted once in 11 Premier League stars this term.

And with Fulham slipping into the danger zone following five-straight defeats, it appears as though the experienced forward is looking to leave the sinking ship at the earliest opportunity.

Polodolski double sees past the Cottagers

Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski grabbed a brace in a impressive 3-1 victory over local rivals Fulham.

The Gunners could finally put the opening day defeat to Aston Villa behind them with a very convincing and dominating performance on a wet Craven Cottage.

They took the lead through French striker Olivier Giroud, who found himself on the end of a mis-hit shot to cleverly chip over the advancing Fulham ‘keeper David Stockdale.

Left-sided forward Lukas Podolski doubled Arsenal’s lead before half-time with a side-footed effort through a crowded penalty area after Theo Walcott’s shot was initially saved.

Fulham’s Craven Cottage stadium. Kick-off at 12:45.

Arsenal will be looking to bounce back after their opening day defeat to Aston Villa with a win away to Fulham this afternoon.

The Gunners have a great record in away games to the Cottagers. They have won eight of their last 12 matches at Fulham’s Craven Cottage stadium. Fulham have only beaten Arsenal three times out of 24 meetings.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger knows his side can ill-afford to lose back-to-back Premier League games at the start of the season, and they do have fresh hope after their victory in Turkey against Fenerbahce in the Champions League qualifiers.
