When Manchester City drew with Everton back in August, they were able to hit back with a run of games that has seen them not drop a single point in the league or in Europe since then. When Chelsea lost to Crystal Palace in October, they managed to embark upon a run in which they are unbeaten in seven Premier League games, winning six of them. In a few months time, Arsenal need to make sure that people are saying the same about their run of wins after losing to Manchester United.
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.
Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil is a player that divides opinion. Some believe that he is a footballing genius, a player capable of producing great work of art on the pitch.
Others believe that he is a lazy and lethargic player, who does not give his team enough when really needed.
For me, he is a very talented player, who sometimes is hammered at times because he does not always produce his best form. However, that could apply to any player in world football.
Arsenal recorded a 5-0 victory over Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night in the Premier League.
The home side took the lead with the first real attempt on goal after just three minutes. Aaron Ramsey produced a lovely flick put Alexandre Lacazette through on goal and the French striker slide the ball past Jonas Lossl in the Huddersfield goal.
Ramsey was involved in the next attempt on goal on ten minutes. The ball fell kindly to the Wales midfielder on the edge of the area, but he could only put his effort well over the bar.
Arsenal were able to claim a hard-fought 1-0 win over Burnley on Sunday as they backed up their victory over Tottenham the week before. Following the win, former-Arsenal star Paul Merson has claimed the side will earn a Champions League spot if they keep ahold of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
It was hardly the prettiest of wins on Sunday as Arsenal ground out a 1-0 victory over highflying Burnley. Sean Dyche’s men dominated the first-half, but Arsenal displayed their newfound backbone to grow into the game in the second-half, as they were well on top in the second 45.
Arsenal were forced to grind out a 1-0 win over Burnley in Sunday’s Premier League meeting, with Alexis Sanchez converting a penalty in the closing stages. The win was one that displayed Arsenal’s backbone, and they were able to achieve it without the presence of German Mesut Ozil.
It was not the prettiest of wins, but Arsenal backed up their victory over Tottenham last Saturday with a win over Burnley this Sunday. While some might turn their noses up at the triumph, beating Burnley at Turf Moor should not be underestimated, with Sean Dyche’s men sitting in seventh this campaign.
La Liga title contenders Barcelona have stepped up the chase for Arsenal star Mesut Ozil.
The Catalans have been informed of the German international’s availability by Arsene Wenger himself, claims Don Balon, and have moved forward to open talks regarding a possible January move.
Wenger is keen to cash in on his wantaway star rather than lose him for free when Ozil’s contract expires at the end of the season and Barcelona are prepared to take advantage of such a situation.
Arsenal outplayed Tottenham in their north London derby on Saturday as the Gunners returned to Premier League action with a 2-0 win. The victory allowed the London side to relieve a lot of the pressure that they had come under, and they are now reportedly looking to add more strength to their squad as they supposedly sent scouts to watch Porto’s Danilo.
Arsenal were by far the better team on the day as they defied the odds to claim a valuable win on Saturday. The 2-0 scoreline did nothing to flatter the Gunners, who probably should have won by more. Tottenham were very poor on the day but that should not take away from the performance of the home side.

Arsene Wenger has had to deal with a lot of criticism recently, while his two best players in Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are supposedly on the cusp of leaving. However, Nacho Monreal has claimed otherwise.

The Gunners were able to defy the odds as they beat Tottenham last Saturday. The 2-0 win was one that few saw coming, but from the way they played, it was entirely deserved. For a man, Arsenal outplayed their opponents, with the usually so devastating Spurs unable to get a foothold in the game.
