Giroud rescues a late point for Arsenal at Southampton 0

Posted on December 10, 2017 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal needed an 88th-minute equaliser to rescue a 1-1 draw at Southampton.

The home side took the lead on three minutes. Per Mertesacker gives the ball away, Dusan Tadic beat the German defender before finding Charlie Austin, who kept himself onside and calmly beat Petr Cech.

The Saints came close to doubling their lead two minutes later, with Tadic and Austin combining once again. However, this time Cech produced a good save from Austin’s effort from a tight angle.

Austin struck the post on eight minutes from Nathan Redmond’s cross. The effort would not have counted anyway, as the referee’s assistant flagged the striker for offside.

Spanish media outlet Marca claimed that Los Blancos are willing to trigger his release clause in excess of €20 million and get him to Santiago Bernabeu in January, but the British press report that Arsenal are prepared to challenge the Spanish giants in an effort to steal Keppa Arrizabalaga’s signature.

The Hungarian ‘keeper spent five years of his career at Anfield but failed to make a single appearance for the Reds. The 27-year-old enjoyed various loan spells away at Hereford, Tranmere and Hull City before leaving the Merseyside club in 2013 when his contract expired.

Arsenal recorded a 2-1 victory over Swansea on Saturday afternoon at the Emirates Stadium, with Aaron Ramsey grabbing the winning goal in the second half.

Arsenal were the first to have any sort of threatening attack, which came on seven minutes. Alexis Sanchez found Sead Kolasinac on the edge of the Swansea penalty area and the wing-backs effort was blocked by Swans defender Alfie Mawson.

The home side also had the next chance, as Laurent Koscielny headed a Sanchez free-kick straight at former Gunners goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. The home side continued to dominate possession and Sanchez saw a long-range effort fly wide of Fabianski’s right-hand post. Mawson also blocked a Hector Bellerin shot from the edge of the area.

Arsenal must cut out their defensive failings 0

Posted on October 23, 2017 by Ben Darvill

As a game in the Premier League goes, it was about as easy a win as Arsenal are likely to get all season. Everton failed to ever really press the Gunners, and even when they went a goal up, they did not ever really look like they wanted to score a second. Indeed, the London side found it far too easy to dominate the ball and punish their hosts with five goals of their own.
