Arsenal lack a killer instinct 0

Posted on December 17, 2017 by David Nugent

The Arsenal players like to make life interesting for their supporters. Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium was a good example of that theory.

Arsenal looked in complete control in the first half and Newcastle barely threatened the Gunners goal. However, Arsenal failed to score a killer second goal.

As it is near the season of giving, the Arsenal defence decided to give the visitors some great opportunities to something from this game. Fortunately, for the Gunners, Newcastle could not find the net with a SAT NAV at the minute.

Lacking a killer instinct

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.

Arsenal will look to bounce back from consecutive Premier League draws on Saturday afternoon, as the Gunners welcome Newcastle to the Emirates Stadium.

Coupled with a 3-1 defeat by Manchester United prior to the draws, Arsenal have picked up just two points from their last three outings in the English top-flight.

Arsenal’s squad currently has a bit of dead wood lying around. These players never were and never will be good enough for where the Gunners want to be. One of these players is French full-back Mathieu Debuchy.

According to TalkSPORT and L’Equipe, Arsenal may well be about to offload the full-back to French club Marseille. The Ligue One club are reportedly interested in signing the 32-year-old on a free transfer, although the defender still has two years left on his contract.

Never good enough for Arsenal

Newcastle United are preparing a bid for Arsenal’s out-of-favour central midfielder Jack Wilshere, according to the Daily Express. The report also claims that Wilshere has accepted the fact that he is now surplus to requirements in north London.

The 25-year-old’s contract in north London expires next summer and it seems unlikely that a chance offer will be forthcoming.

Wilshere needs to prove himself

In his teen years, Wilshere was supposedly destined to be a star. However, the midfielder’s problems with injuries are well documented, as close to a decade Wilshere has struggled to stay away from injuries.

Arsenal are looking to offload a number of their players and one of those is supposedly Spanish striker Lucas Perez. The 28-year-old only joined the Gunners from Deportivo La Coruna last summer for a fee of around £17million.

With left-backs Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs already on the club’s books, it seems like there likely that one of those will leave.

Posted on June 08, 2016 by David Nugent

Newcastle and France central midfielder Moussa Sissoko has recently talked about his wish to join Arsenal this summer. The Magpies were relegated last season following a close shave with demotion to the Championship in the previous campaign.

However, the question would be would he really add anything to the Arsenal squad?

Blows hot and cold

Sissoko is one of those players that blow hot and cold. He can be fantastic one game and woeful the next. Last season he produced seven assists and scored one goal, as the north east side were relegated.
