Arsenal recorded a 2-1 win at Middlesbrough on Monday night, with goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil enough to seal the victory. It was by no means a pretty one, but as midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stated after the game they just needed a win.

Arsenal were not at their best and there was a slight nervousness about the Gunners, which is understandable because of their recent away form (four straight defeats).

However, in the end, the Gunners managed to grind out a win, in a fashion that they have struggled to do in the past.

Arsenal ended a run of four straight away defeats in the Premier League by winning 2-1 at Middlesbrough on Monday, courtesy of goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

Middlesbrough had the first attempt on goal on four minutes, as Grant Leadbitter fired a long-range effort just wide of Petr Cech’s far post. Boro’s Spanish striker Alvaro Negredo was the next one to have a go at goal, firing well wide of Cech’s goal from long-range.

According to Arsenal’s Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil, it is the wrong time to talk about his contract situation. Instead, the German wants to concentrate on the Gunners quest for a top-four finish this season.

Arsenal all that’s important

Talking ahead of Monday’s visit to Middlesbrough Ozil told Sky Sports: “I think at the moment it would be wrong to really think about that, to go ahead and look at that.

“At the moment the team we’re having a more difficult spell and at this stage, I’m not important and no other player is important. What’s important is the club.

The German international has stalled contract talks with the Gunners, reportedly rejecting £280K-a-week offered from the club but says he will wait until the summer before making a decision, waiting for their final standing in the Premier League before committing his future or requesting a move.

Arsenal recorded a crucial 3-0 victory over West Ham at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night to aid the Gunners hopes of Champions League qualification.

To be fair and square, and completely honest, Arsenal did receive their great share of criticism this season.

Most of it was well-deserved as fans had been put through a devastating campaign which is threatening to become the worst one in the Premier League era for the North London club.

Arsenal have suffered a humiliating Champions League defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich, who won 10-2 on aggregate, whereas the Gunners are also losing pace in the run for the top four spot in the Premier League.

Manchester United eying-up Arsenal pair 0

Manchester United are monitoring the situations of Arsenal pair Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to the Metro.

The reports suggest that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is looking at adding to his midfield options in the summer, with Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ozil being two players of interest to the Portuguese boss.

Never really nailed down a first team spot

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for all his supposed potential has never really nailed down a spot in the Gunners starting line-up. He has been in and out of the team in recent years and despite the Gunners not always thriving has struggled to get in the team on a regular basis.

For a long time now the talk about Arsenal has been about whether boss Arsene Wenger would stay at the club this summer or whether Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will decide to stay. It would seem unthinkable that the latter two will both leave.

However, with the months ticking down on the pair’s contracts, it seems more likely that they will be sold on in the summer.

Talks planned soon

Ozil has now stated that gave an indication that he will decide his future in the near future by telling German newspaper Die Welt: “Do you think Arsene Wenger tells the journalists [about my future] before he tells me? I know him differently.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been accused of not wanting to spend the clubs money. Yet two of the players he has spent big money on in recent seasons, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez could well be leaving the club in the summer. Both players will have just 12 months left on their contracts in north London.

The announcement by Wenger that the club are going to leave the contract negotiations until the summer suggests that the pair could be on the verge of leaving the club.

Sanchez and Ozil contracts to wait until the summer 0

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed contract talks with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will be in the summer. The two players have less than 18 months left on their respective deals and have stalled on extensions thus far. It was believed Arsenal failed to meet their demands but Sanchez and Ozil might now wait for the season to finish before deciding to commit their future.

Arsenal risk missing out on Champions League football for the first time in Wenger’s tenure at the club, which would almost certainly see the world-class duo leave this summer. And the Gunners boss admitted being unable to come to an agreement with the pair. “At the moment we have not got an agreement,” he said.
