The rise of Mkhitaryan? 0

Posted on July 26, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has spoken out over how happy he feels about his transition from Manchester United to Arsenal, and despite the fact that he hasn’t seemingly been able to hit that top tier just yet in his career, all the signs are there to suggest that he can become a world-class talent with the Gunners. Under Unai Emery, it seems as if the Armenian is going to be playing a big part in what he has planned moving forward, which can only be a good thing for Arsenal fans around the world.

For anybody who has seen Arsenal play in the last season or two, or even longer than that, it has been impossible not to perceive where the main problems lie, as well as the place where only a tweak or two would do just fine. Going forward, there is very little you could pinpoint as wrong, especially in the Premier League towards the end of the season with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on great form since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund.

Was the Sanchez deal a good one? 0

The dust has officially settled on the 2017/18 Premier League season, and for the most part, it was a pretty interesting year. While Manchester City were able to run away with the title at the top of the table, there were plenty of other stories going on throughout the division worth talking about. One of the biggest, which had been brewing for quite some time, was Alexis Sanchez’s move from Arsenal to Manchester United – which sent Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the opposite direction.

Gunners beaten by late Fellaini header at United 0

Arsenal suffered a late 2-1 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford, courtesy of a stoppage-time winner from substitute Marouane Fellaini.

United offered the first threat on goal on four minutes, as midfielder Paul Pogba fired an effort wide of goal. Arsenal saw their first effort on goal was a long-range low effort from youngster Reiss Nelson, which David De Gea saved comfortably.

The home side took the lead soon afterwards. Pogba started the move by playing the ball to Romelu Lukaku in the area. Alexis Sanchez headed the Belgian striker’s far post cross towards goal, only for Hector Bellerin to deflect the effort on to the post. However, Pogba followed up to volley past David Ospina in the Gunners goal.

CSKA Moscow v Arsenal Europa League preview 0

On Thursday night, Arsenal travel to the Russian capital to face CSKA Moscow in the Europa League quarter-final second leg. The Gunners take a commanding 4-1 lead into the clash, but cannot afford complacency against the Russian side.

The home side have been in patchy form in recent weeks and their Europa League form has been little more consistent either. The Russian side have won just two of their last six games in Europe.

The Russian side’s last two European games have seen over 2.5 goals. However, their previous five games produced under 2.5 goals.

Arsenal v Southampton Premier League preview 0

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host relegation-threatened Southampton at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners are currently sixth-place in the table and a top-four finish now looks well beyond Arsene Wenger’s team. However, the Gunners have been in decent form of late, winning their last five games in all competitions, having scored at least two goals in all five of the victories.

The north London side has also won their last two Premier League games 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium. One of the positives, as always it seems with Arsenal is their home record.

Team news ahead of Southampton game 0

Arsene Wenger has provided updates regarding the availability of several players for the the game at the Emirates against Southampton on Sunday.

It seems Henrikh Mkhitaryan might be out for a long time. The Armenian was subbed off after an hour of the Europe League game against CSKA Moscow on Thursday, and the manager says there might be damage to his medial knee ligament. Therefore, it’s impossible to say at this point how long his absence will last, but more will be revealed soon. Let’s hope the fear is proven needless.

Can Mkhitaryan be Arsenal’s next superstar? 0

Posted on April 06, 2018 by Harry Kettle

In an age of such uncertainty at the Emirates, it’s not exactly surprising to see so much negativity surrounding the club. Their days of competing amongst Europe’s elite are over, they can’t even break into the top four anymore, and their once great leader Arsene Wenger (yes, we said his name again – we’ll put a tenner in the jar) has been on the decline for the better part of a decade now.

Mkhitaryan reveals why he chose to join Arsenal 0

Arsenal’s January recruit Henrikh Mkhitaryan has moved to reveal that he didn’t need to be persuaded to switch Manchester United for Arsenal.

The Armenian playmaker joined the Gunners in exchange for Alexis Sanchez, jumping at the opportunity to leave Old Trafford after struggling for playing time under Jose Mourinho.

Mkhitaryan has since enjoyed a bright start to his career at the Emirates, producing 1 goal and 4 assists in first 7 Premier League outings for the club, and he has now revealed the main reason why he opted to sign for Arsenal.

Display against AC Milan encouraging for Arsenal 0

Posted on March 16, 2018 by David Nugent

I am usually very sceptical about Arsenal in general. Too many times the Gunners have flattered to deceive in recent seasons. However, I have to say Arsene Wenger’s team produced an encouraging display against AC Milan on Thursday night.

The 3-1 win on the night meant that the team from north London went through to the last eight of the competition with a 5-1 aggregate win, which in all fairness did flatter the Gunners.

Looking very lively
