Arsenal’s woeful away record continues at Newcastle 0

Posted on April 16, 2018 by David Nugent

The Arsenal players are often accused of lacking characters and bottling it in big games. The Gunners away performances, not only this season but at times last season as well, show that the players are simply not strong enough mentally to play for a club the size of Arsenal.

Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Newcastle means that the Gunners have lost their last five away games on their travels in the top-flight. In fact, the north London side has won just one of their last nine away games in the Premier League.

On Sunday, Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle, to continue their terrible run of form away from home in the Premier League.

Arsenal had the first effort of the game as striker Alexandre Lacazette miss-hit a shot wide of goal. The home side responded on ten minutes, as Petr Cech produced a comfortable save from a Kenedy strike.

The Gunners took the lead on 14 minutes. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ran at Jamaal Lascelles before putting the ball past the defender. The Gabon international then found Lacazette at the far post, who slides in to put the ball past Dubravka in the home goal.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal travel to in-form Newcastle in the Premier League, as the home side seek one more victory to secure their top-flight status.

Newcastle have moved away from the relegation zone with a three-game winning run of late in the Premier League. The Magpies are now ten points clear of the drop zone and look to be safe from the drop.

A 2-1 win away at Leicester in their last Premier League outing displayed the Magpies recent confidence.

Rafa Benitez’s team have a strong recent record at St James Park in the league, as the Magpies are unbeaten in six home games, having won their three Premier League games on home soil.

In an ideal world, at this stage of the season, Arsenal would be challenging for the Premier League title, the Champions League and the FA Cup. Unfortunately, that’s not the case and hasn’t been for quite a few years now, and because of that, some fans have grown incredibly impatient with Arsene Wenger and the squad themselves.

However, following a four-game losing slump earlier in the year, the Gunners have managed to turn things around and they’re currently riding a 6-game winning streak heading into their UEFA Europa League game against CSKA Moscow this week. Now while that is obviously the overriding story here, by the time the game comes around, people will only be focused on the fact that Arsenal ‘need’ to win the tournament in order to qualify for the UCL next season.

On Friday night, Arsenal and Liverpool go head-to-head at the Emirates Stadium, in both teams last game before Christmas.

Arsenal will be hoping to leapfrog the visitors in the table, as the Gunners are one point behind the Merseysiders, who occupy fourth spot in the table.

The Gunners recent Premier League form has been erratic, as Arsene Wenger’s side have won just one of their last four league outings. However, that victory was last time out when the north London side defeated Newcastle 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal lack a killer instinct 0

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.

Arsene Wenger’s side drew 0-0 with West Ham last time out, which followed a 1-1 draw at Southampton. The draws have seen the Gunners slip to seventh in the table, although they are still just a point behind Tottenham, who currently occupy fourth spot.

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.

Marseille looking to sign Arsenal full-back 0

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 preparing bid for Jack Wilshere 0

Posted on August 13, 2017 by David Nugent

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.
