Posted on March 02, 2018 by Milos Markovic

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is the talk of the town at the moment with Frenchman being heavily linked with imminent departure following yet another disappointing result.

Back-to-back defeats at the hands of Manchester City – first in the Carabao Cup final last weekend and in the Premier League on Thursday night – have put the Arsenal boss under increasing pressure.

The fans are once again turning against the Premier League’s longest serving manager who could be set for an immediate end to his 22-year tenure at the north London club.

On Thursday night, Arsenal suffered a 3-0 home defeat against league leaders Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal offered the first attacking threat, as Ederson smothered at the feet of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on seven minutes. A minute later, Aaron Ramsey fired a powerful effort towards goal that hit Vincent Kompany, only for Ederson to produce a good save.

Soon afterwards Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero fired into the side-netting from a tight angle. On 13 minutes, Henrikh Mkhitaryan shot straight at Ederson after good work from Ramsey and Danny Welbeck.

On Thursday night, Arsenal host Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League. The two met last Sunday in the Carabao Cup final, which City won comfortably 3-0.

Arsenal are struggling to keep pace with the top-four, with fourth-place Tottenham now ten points ahead of the Gunners in the race for Champions League spots.

The Gunners head into this game on the back of three defeats in their last four games in all outings. Arsene Wenger’s side have been unconvincing in the Premier League too, winning just two of their last seven games in the English top-flight.

Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday was not completely unexpected. The Citizens are runaway league leaders in the Premier League and a cut above most teams in England, if not Europe.

People can talk about a foul for the first goal or an offside for the second goal, but in truth, City were just too good for Arsenal and the Citizens were not even at full pelt. The sheer gap between the two teams was frightening for Arsenal and the fans.

Arsenal suffered a 3-0 defeat against Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday, as Pep Guardiola won his first silverware in England. Goals from Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva were enough to seal a comfortable victory for the Citizens.

Arsenal had the first goal threat of the game, as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found himself with a gaping goal, only for Kyle Walker to tackle the striker before Claudio Bravo saved the rebound from the striker who was just a few yards out.

On Sunday afternoon, Manchester City and Arsenal clash at Wembley in the final of the Carabao Cup.

Manchester City no longer have the quadruple to aim for this season after exiting the FA Cup. However, the Citizens can still complete the treble of Premier League, Champions League and League Cup.

Pep Guardiola’s side has dispatched West Brom, Leicester, Wolves and Bristol City in the previous rounds. Arsenal should represent slightly more of a challenge for the Citizens, as Guardiola looks to win his first trophy at the Manchester club. If they succeed in winning the trophy it will be their third triumph in the competition in the past five seasons.

Arsenal face a massive test on Sunday as they travel to Wembley to play against Premier League behemoth Manchester City in the EFL Cup final. Both sides will feel they can win the contest, but Pep Guardiola’s men will be favourites, and rightly so.

The Gunners have been poor this season in comparison to their next opponents as they sit 27 points short of City with just 11 games of the season left. In Europe, City have been outstanding in the Champions League, while Arsenal have had to settle for the Europa League.

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.

Arsenal odds of 11/2 to sign Riyad Mahrez this summer 0

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has fanned the flames of rumour that Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez may be a transfer target by claiming he knows what happened with the Algerian’s failed deadline day move to Manchester City.

Mahrez has gone on strike since a deadline day move to the Citizens collapsed and has not played since. He is expected to miss out once again this weekend, as the Foxes travel to the Etihad Stadium this weekend.

Talking about the Mahrez situation, Wenger told the press: “You want the clubs to behave well and the players to behave well. In the case of Mahrez which I know a bit the story, I wouldn’t want to come out on that”.

Arsenal now 7/4 to win the EFL Cup 0

Arsenal will face Manchester City on February 25th in the EFL Cup final after their 2-1 aggregate defeat of London rivals Chelsea.

The EFL Cup offers the Gunners an opportunity to win silverware. In fact, the competition could offer the north London team their best chance of winning a trophy this season. Arsene Wenger’s side are now odds 7/4 of winning the competition.

Showed good resilience to beat Chelsea

It would be hard to claim that Arsenal were outstanding against Chelsea. However, the Gunners showed great resilience to come back from a goal down to beat the Blues, albeit with the helping hand of a huge slice of luck for the equaliser.
