Posted on December 16, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal produced a narrow 1-0 win against Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with a sublime Mesut Ozil effort the difference in the game.

The Gunners had the first attempt on goal on three minutes. Alexandre Lacazette played a one-two with Alex Iwobi before firing a low drive towards goal that Rob Elliot got down to save.

At the other end of the pitch, Petr Cech had to be alive to save Jamaal Lascelles far post header. Full-back DeAndre Yedlin saw an effort from 20 yards out fly well over the bar from the resulting corner kick.

Mesut Ozil is reportedly eyeing up a switch to Premier League rivals Manchester United as the German midfielder looks to leave Arsenal to link back up with manager Jose Mourinho.

Arsene Wenger has claimed that Arsenal have not given Mesut Ozil a final contract, despite rumours that the German has been given a final offer by the Premier League outfit who are reportedly keen to try to either keep him for the long-term, or sell him to make some money in January.

Arsenal were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton at the weekend as they lost even more ground on leaders Manchester City. The London side are not 17 points short of City at the top, while they are a point below Liverpool in the last Champions League spot.

It was not the result Arsenal were looking for on Sunday as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton in their Premier League game. The dropping of two points in conjunction with the fact that Manchester City can go 17 points clear of the Gunners means the weekend has been a hugely disappointing one.

Charlie Austin struck early for the hosts as he put Southampton ahead. Arsenal enjoyed a huge share of the possession, but they were awful when it came to any kind of incisive ball. In fact, they seemed more concerned with passing it sideways rather than going forward.

The partnership between Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil is one that is growing with every game that goes by. The Arsenal strikeforce could blossom into the most fearsome in the Premier League, and Lacazette believes that they will only get better as time goes by.

Arsenal were forced to stomach a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United last Saturday as Jose Mourinho’s side left the Emirates with all three points. The game itself was notable for being a performance in which the Gunners deserved all three points, but they were thwarted by an inspired David de Gea, who made a string of fine saves on the night.

Former-Arsenal star Emmanuel Petit has questioned the upturn in form of both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, as he believes the pair have their eyes set on the transfer window to come.

Arsenal were incredibly unfortunate not to win a thrilling Premier League battle with Machester United at the weekend as the Gunners went down 3-1. Despite losing the game, the hosts created a glut of chances, but were ultimately thwarted by the brilliance of David de Gea, who once again underlined his credentials as the best goalkeeper in the world.

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 must learn the defensive lessons from their loss to Manchester United 2

Three mistakes, three goals. That is all it took to beat an Arsenal side that, bar their three moments of weakness, were outstanding. 75% possession, 33 shots of which 15 were on target, and 12 corners displays just how good they were, while it also shows the outstanding contribution of David de Gea too.

Manchester United’s first goal saw Antonio Valencia capitalise on a loose Laurent Koscielny pass to drill home the opener, while Jesse Lingard made good use of Shkodran Mustafi dawdling on the ball. The killer-blow came via a slick counter-attack as Koscielny was easily brushed aside in the penalty area by Paul Pogba, who squared the ball for Lingard to tap home.
