The Gunners continue to fall down the ranks this season both domestically and in Europe, having lost four consecutive games since 2002. Many fans are wondering just how low things can go throughout the remainder of the campaign, as the calls for Wenger to walk away or be sacked grow stronger and stronger.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has never changed his attitude towards team selections for cup games. He usually uses fringe players and young players in the likes of the League Cup and the Europa League.
However, last Thursday, Wenger decided to field a relatively strong side in the Gunners 3-0 win at Ostersunds in the Europa League first leg last 32 tie. The fact that Mesut Ozil started for the first time in Europe showed that Wenger knew the game was a tricky encounter.

Chelsea and Arsenal played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.
The home side had the first attempt on goal after just two minutes, as Alvaro Morata tried to poke an effort in at the near post. However, the Spanish striker could only find the side-netting.
The next attempt on goal did not come until the 20th minute when Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka dragged a long-range free-kick wide of goal. Two minutes later the visitors hit the Blues on the counter-attack, Jack Wilshere feeding the ball to Alexandre Lacazette, who fires wide of Chelsea’s near post. .......Read more here.....

On Wednesday night, Arsenal travel to London rivals Chelsea for the League Cup semi-final first leg.
Chelsea will be hoping to gain the initiative in this tie in the first leg at Stamford Bridge. The Blues clashed with Arsenal just last week, in a game that ended 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger rotated his squad for the Gunners surprise 4-2 defeat at managerless Championship side Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup. This is a norm for the veteran French boss when it comes to cup competitions.
Wenger has always prioritised, with the likes of the League Cup and Europa League used to field fringe and young players. That is exactly what Wenger did on Sunday at Forest. In all honesty, the team that started probably should have had enough to beat the Tricky Trees.

Arsenal seemingly did not want to make it through their Carabao Cup tie against Norwich on Tuesday night. For much of the game, Arsenal struggled to break down the Canaries. The Championship side also enjoyed some good spells during the 90 minutes.
With the likes of Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere failing to make the breakthrough it fell to 18-year-old substitute Eddie Nketiah to be the hero. The striker making his home debut rescued the north London side with an equaliser five minutes from time. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal host Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup fourth round, as the Gunners look to avoid a potential banana skin.
The north London side head into the clash in good spirits after a 5-2 win at Everton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. The win came on the back of unconvincing performances and results against Watford and Crvena Zvezda.
Despite some disappointing displays of late, the Gunners have a very good home record at the Emirates Stadium. In fact, Arsene Wenger’s side have won their last 11 competitive games on home soil. .......Read more here.....
