Arsenal recorded a 2-1 win at Middlesbrough on Monday night, with goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil enough to seal the victory. It was by no means a pretty one, but as midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stated after the game they just needed a win.

Arsenal were not at their best and there was a slight nervousness about the Gunners, which is understandable because of their recent away form (four straight defeats).

However, in the end, the Gunners managed to grind out a win, in a fashion that they have struggled to do in the past.

Arsenal’s abject performance in Monday night’s 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace confirmed something to Gunners fans. It confirmed the fact that a lot of the current squad are not fit to wear the shirt, as the chant goes.

Palace simply wanted it more and played on Arsenal’s weaknesses. However, their approach was obvious from the start. They were going to hit Christian Benteke at every possible opportunity.

This is not the beautiful game at its best, but it’s highly effective, especially against a team that looked scared of the Belgian striker. Palace were deserved winners against an Arsenal side that simply did not look good enough.

Arsenal’s hopes of securing Champions League football for next season took a heavy blow as they went down to a 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace on Monday night.

The home side had the first attempt on goal after just three minutes. A good team move eventually saw the ball fall for Yohan Cabaye, who got his shot horribly wrong and the Frenchman’s effort went wide of Emiliano Martinez’s goal.

It was Palace who offered the next threat on goal too, as midfielder Luka Milivojevic fired just wide of Martinez near post. The Gunners hit back on nine minutes. The ball fell to Mohamed Elneny who curled an effort towards the far corner of the net, only for Wayne Hennessey to produce a fantastic save.

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin continues to generate plenty of interest from Europe’s biggest clubs despite his poor run of form, which comes as a huge contrast to performances that made him a first-team regular at Emirates last season.

Reasons for troubling dip in form Hector Bellerin in experiencing could be found in increased pressure in the club and growing interest from his former club Barcelona.

However, the Catalan giants are not the only one interested in Arsenal hot-shot as the Italian media outlet Tuttosport is suggesting that Serie A champions Juventus have also set their sights on the 22-year-old defender.

Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez revealed the club are interested in bringing former youth player Hector Bellerin back to the Nou Camp this summer as they look for a long-term right-back.

Gabriel could replace Bellerin until the Spaniard recaptures his form 0

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has struggled for form since returning from injury but the Gunners haven’t had viable like-for-like replacements given Mathieu Debuchy has been out in the cold all season while Carl Jenkinson is on the transfer list. Gabriel Paulista has successfully deputised for the Spaniard when called upon in the past and may well get the nod ahead of Bellerin for Arsenal’s next game as a result.

Is Bellerin playing with an injury? 0

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has struggled for form since his return from an ankle injury in December, and it’s believed the Spanish international could be playing without being fully match fit. Bellerin started the season strongly with Arsenal but has been poor for a number of weeks which could be attributed to the injury he’s yet to fully recover from.

The 22-year-old has made 22 Premier League appearances this season, making just two assists. Bellerin found himself exposed on a number of occasions in 2017, most recently being caught flat-footed and outpaced by West Brom’s James McClean in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat, and the lack of a better right-back option might be the reason the former Barcelona man continues to feature.
