On Sunday, Arsenal pays a fond farewell to veteran boss Arsene Wenger, as the Gunners travel to Huddersfield on the last day of the Premier League season.
The home side heads into the game on the back of consecutive creditable draws at Manchester City and Chelsea that were enough to seal the Terriers top-flight status for next season.
David Wagner’s side has achieved safety by scoring the second fewest goals in the Premier League, having scored just 28 goals this season. The Yorkshire side has also won just once in their last nine league outings, which is terrible form. .......Read more here.....

In yesterday’s article, I wrote that Leicester were ideal opponents for Arsenal. Maybe Arsenal were, in fact, ideal opponents for the Foxes, who recorded a 3-1 win over the Gunners after Konstantinos Mavropanos saw red after just 15 minutes.
From then on, it was always going to be difficult for the Gunners to end their poor away record. The north London side did score through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang early in the second half, but goals from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez won the game for the out-of-form Foxes. .......Read more here.....

One of Arsenal’s main Achilles heels in recent seasons under veteran boss Arsene Wenger has been their away form. In fact, some have described it as the main reason for the Gunners decline in recent years.
Arsenal’s home form has been very strong in recent seasons. However, a lack of mental strength and quality has seen the Gunners lose far too many games on their travels.
Their recent six-game losing run away from home in the Premier League is a classic example of the problem. Arsenal have just two games left under Wenger, both away from home at Leicester this evening and at relegation-threatened Huddersfield on the final day. .......Read more here.....

Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil is a player that divides opinion. Some believe that he is a footballing genius, a player capable of producing great work of art on the pitch.
Others believe that he is a lazy and lethargic player, who does not give his team enough when really needed.
For me, he is a very talented player, who sometimes is hammered at times because he does not always produce his best form. However, that could apply to any player in world football. .......Read more here.....

It was a five-star performance from the Gunners on Wednesday evening as they continued their rejuvenation. With the win, it seems as though Arsenal are finally beginning to turn a corner.
Arsene Wenger’s men were outstanding on the night as they brushed Huddersfield aside. Goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, and a double from Olivier Giroud were more than enough for the London side as they overpowered their opponents.
The victory has seen Arsenal tighten their grip on fourth-place, with the Gunners two points clear of Liverpool in fifth, and just a point behind Chelsea in third. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a 5-0 victory over Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night in the Premier League.
The home side took the lead with the first real attempt on goal after just three minutes. Aaron Ramsey produced a lovely flick put Alexandre Lacazette through on goal and the French striker slide the ball past Jonas Lossl in the Huddersfield goal.
Ramsey was involved in the next attempt on goal on ten minutes. The ball fell kindly to the Wales midfielder on the edge of the area, but he could only put his effort well over the bar. .......Read more here.....

The Premier League newbies Huddersfield have enjoyed a positive start to their maiden season in the top tier with manager David Wagner doing a great work with his Terries.
They gave Manchester City a bit of a scare last Sunday but still ended up losing the third of their last four games. The reality of the Premier League is slowly kicking in as challenges keep mounting for Huddersfield who face a daunting task all over again, this time in London.
The Gunners were fortunate to have run away with a last-gasp victory over Burnley last time out but will be determined to keep the positive momentum in the league going further in the midweek. .......Read more here.....

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to strengthen their position in the Premier League’s top-four.
The Gunners moved into the Champions League spots last time out by recording a 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor courtesy of a stoppage-time penalty from Alexis Sanchez.
Arsene Wenger’s side have been rather inconsistent of late. However, their recent Premier League form has been strong, as the Gunners have now won four of their last five games in the English top-flight. .......Read more here.....
