Arsenal were held to a hugely disappointing draw by struggling West Ham in the week which followed a 1-1 tie with Southampton, with both games showcasing just how toothless the Gunners can be when they are at their worst.

Arsenal struggled to make an impact on the West Ham goal in Wednesday night’s goalless draw. One of the few positives of the Gunners display was a decent display from central midfielder Jack Wilshere.

The England international was making his first Premier League start of the campaign after making all his starts this season in the League Cup and Europa League. It was, in fact, Wilshere’s first league appearance for Arsenal since May 2016 due to a loan spell at Bournemouth last season.

Arsenal were held to a goalless draw by struggling West Ham at the London Stadium in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

The Gunners controlled the opening exchanges. However, the first attempt on goal did not arrive until the tenth minute. West Ham ‘keeper Adrian got down to comfortably save Alexis Sanchez’s effort.

On 15 minutes, West Ham winger Marko Arnautovic saw a headed effort ruled out for offside. Arsenal came forward again on 23 minutes. A good team move involving Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud resulted in the ball being played to Sanchez, whose deflected effort flew wide of the post.

West Ham newly-appointed manager David Moyes is looking to further strengthen the Hammers squad during the January transfer window in order to boost his survival chances.

Having invested a good load of money on new signings during summer and despite boosting the squad by the likes of Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic, West Ham have endured a difficult start to new Premier League season.

The club hierarchy decided to part ways with Slaven Bilic and appoint former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager David Moyes, who managed to tighten up his side and make Hammers a more organized defensively.

It was the same old story for Arsenal against Southampton on Sunday as they were held to a 1-1 draw by their hosts. The stalemate means that the Gunners are 14 points short of leaders Manchester City having played a game more, which has pretty much brought an end to their slim title hopes.

The game itself was a direct antithesis to their loss against Manchester United last weekend. Arsenal created a huge amount of chances only to be stopped on the line by the marvellous David de Gea. On Sunday, Arsenal were not able to be toothless with their finishing as they rarely threatened to open their opponents up.

Arsenal coasted into the knockout stages of the Europa League On Thursday night. In reality, the Gunners were a cut above the teams in their group. Arsene Wenger could afford to field weakened teams full of fringe and young players,

The fringe players were good enough to negotiate games against the likes of Koln, Red Star Belgrade and BATE Borisov. The likes of Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshere have impressed in the group stages.

Arsenal rounded-off their Europa League group campaign with a 6-0 hammering of Belarussian side BATE Borisov at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.

The Gunners came close to opening the scoring as early as the fifth minute. Olivier Giroud teed the ball up for Mohamed Elneny 20 yards from goal. The midfielder’s effort skidded off the surface and skimmed the outside of the post.

The visitors threatened Ospina’s goal for the first-time three minutes later, as Ivanic’s effort from around 20 yards out went just over the bar.

No competitive edge and no pressure.

That’s the easiest way to describe the forthcoming Europa League clash at the Emirates between Arsenal and BATE Borisov.

Having already secured top spot in their group with one game to spare, Gunners welcome the Belarusian team in this dead rubber in London that still is a fine chance for a quality run out.

Arsene Wenger is expected to rotate heavily with the likes of Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock and Ainsley Maitland-Niles all pushing for a starting berth.

Arsenal set to sell Jack Wilshere in January 0

He’s been one of the most talented players of his generation but Jack Wilshere never quite managed to live up to the expectations.

With his professional career deeply hampered by a string of unfortunate injuries, Jack Wilshere hoped the 2017/18 season could be his big break with the Gunners.

The England midfielder has indeed been given a more prominent role this term – albeit in the Europa League – but his influence in the Premier League campaign has been rather disappointing.

Wilshere is yet to make a single Premier League start for Gunners and has only made three substitute appearances, including a 20-minute cameo against Burnley this last Sunday.
