Aaron Ramsey showing increased productivity 3

Posted on December 03, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal and Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey seems to be a divisive figure amongst Gunners fans. The former Cardiff ace arrived in north London as a highly promising young player.

However, the midfielder’s Arsenal career has been blighted by injuries and lack of consistency. However, slowly but surely his productiveness has improved this season.

Yesterday’s assist for Alexandre Lacazette’s goal in the Gunners 3-1 defeat by Manchester United on Sunday means that he has now produced six assists and three assists in the Premier League this season. In fact, he has produced five assists in as many games in the Premier League.

Arsenal’s 12-match winning run at home in the Premier League ended on Saturday evening, as Arsene Wenger’s side suffered a 3-1 defeat by second-place Manchester United.

The Red Devils took the lead with the first real attempt on goal on four minutes. Antonio Valencia played a one-two with Paul Pogba before the Ecuadorian fired a low effort past Petr Cech.

Alexis Sanchez fired a free-kick straight at the United wall on nine minutes from 25 yards before United doubled their lead two minutes later.

Jesse Lingard dispossessed Shkodran Mustafi. Romelu Lukaku then found Anthony Martial, who flicks the ball to Lingard and the winger steered the ball past Cech.

Arsenal host Manchester United in a huge game at the top of the table on Saturday with two of England’s biggest teams once again locking horns. With the two sides in desperate need of a win to ensure Manchester City do not get any further ahead, a victory over United could prove to be Arsenal’s biggest triumph yet.

As performances go this season, it is difficult to look past Arsenal’s dismantling of Tottenham as the most impressive by a Gunners side this season. They controlled the game from start to finish, with Spurs unable to gain any kind of foothold in the contest.

Arsenal host Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening, as the Gunners look to bridge the four-point to the Red Devils.

The home side have hit form of late, winning their last three games in the Premier League without conceding a goal. Last time out in the top-flight, the north London side hammered Huddersfield 5-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

The win kept Arsene Wenger’s side in fourth place ahead of the likes of Liverpool and Burnley, with arch-rivals Tottenham now seventh place in the table.

Arsenal are reportedly interested in Manchester United’s midfielder Marouane Fellaini, with their Premier League rivals supposedly struggling to tie the Belgian down to a new contract.

Arenal were beaten 3-1 by Manchester City in their last Premier League game as they lost more ground on the league leaders.

Indeed, they are now 12 points shy of City at the top, while they are also three points short of Chelsea in fourth-place. Liverpool’s win over West Ham meant that Arsene Wenger’s men fell into sixth-place, sealing an incredibly tough weekend for the Gunners.

Do Arsenal have any excuses this season? 0

Posted on October 13, 2017 by Ben Darvill

For the last few years, Arsenal have always been missing a key element of their side. A few years ago it was a goalkeeper, then it was a world-class striker, and then it was a solid defence. For so many years they have disappointed their fans with paltry displays across the season that has ultimately seen them miss out on the Champions League for the current season.

Following consecutive defeats against Stoke and Liverpool, it seemed as though Arsenal’s old ghosts were haunting them again. They were already falling behind the top sides and their weaknesses had been exposed, both in their profligacy against Stoke and in their woeful defending against Liverpool. Another season of disappointment beckoned.

Arsenal rekindle interest in Arda Turan amid Mesut Ozil speculation 0

Growing reports that German midfielder Mesut Ozil is on his way out of Arsenal and to his former boss Jose Mourinho at Manchester United have forced Gunners to make plans in order to replace the influential midfielder.

Mesut Ozil is not getting any closer to signing a new contract extension at the Emirates and it was the Independent who reported that Manchester United are confident of landing the World Cup winner on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Ozil’s departure would leave a gaping hole in Arsenal’s attacking midfielder position and Arsene Wenger will be forced to make a move in the market to find a proper replacement for his team’s biggest star.

Barcelona and Manchester United join Arsenal in the race for Goretzka 0

According to Sport Bild, Arsenal have competition from Barcelona and Manchester United for Leon Goretzka’s signature. Bayern Munich have also been linked with the Schalke midfielder recently and were previously rumoured to have agreed a pre-contract deal. However, such claims turned out to be false.

The German international helped his country win the Confederations Cup in the summer and will be hoping for more opportunities with Joachim Lowe by continuing to impress at club level. Goretzka looks to be running his contract with Schalke without any plans to extend his stay at the Veltins-Arena, so he’ll have a host of suitors in January and next summer.

Manchester United looking to prise Alexis Sanchez with whopping sign-on fee 0

Things appear to be getting rather complicated in the Alexis Sanchez transfer saga.

The Chilean superstar had been pursued by Manchester City throughout the summer transfer window but the Citizens’ £60 million attempt ended up being unsuccessful since Arsenal failed to sign a replacement before the end of the window.

Pep Guardiola was left frustrated with Arsenal’s apparent incompetence and is expected to make a fresh approach in order to land the 28-year-old in January. However, the situation appears to has changed dramatically as the Manchester City boss is now facing competition from his fierce rival Jose Mourinho.
