Arsenal are the favourites to win the Europa League this season, despite a 1-0 defeat against Koln on Thursday night in their penultimate group game.
The Gunners have confirmed their place of winners of Group H with a game to spare. The north London giants are now odds of 6/1 to win the competition this season.
Arsene Wenger’s side have qualified in a relatively comfortable manner from a group most would describe as mediocre.
Koln themselves went into last night’s clash having failed to win any of their games in the Bundesliga this season. Peter Stoger’s side did up their game for the clash, in which Wenger decided to field a number of fringe players. .......Read more here.....

According to Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka, the Gunners can still catch Premier League leaders Manchester City this season. The Switzerland international has to say that really, though.
He cannot exactly say that the Gunners are just hoping to claim a Champions League place, which they are odds of 11/8 to do this season. The midfielder has to say his team are aiming for the title.
When asked if he thought the Gunners could catch Manchester City, Xhaka told Sky Sports News: “I think in football everything is possible,” .......Read more here.....

It’s one of the biggest games in the world. Also, one of the most anticipated derbies on the continent and definitely one of those matches that generates incredible attention all over the British Isles.
It nurtures a long-standing rivalry between the two North London sides – Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur – a contention that’s seemingly seen a shift in power over the last couple of seasons with Spurs finishing above Arsenal last season for the first time in Arsene Wenger’s 21 years at the Emirates. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal have come in for some strong criticism in recent years. Criticisms of the Gunners include that they are too soft and need more bottle.
However, for all the criticism aimed at Arsenal, one positive still remains for the Gunners, that is their home form in the Premier League. That is highly encouraging for Arsenal fans, especially with the north London derby against Tottenham this weekend.
Very strong at the Emirates Stadium
Arsenal have won their last ten home games in the English top-flight, while also finding the net at least twice in their last eight games on home soil. That is an impressive home record for any team. Even Premier League leaders Manchester City cannot match that record. .......Read more here.....

It’s been another eventful weekend for Arsenal fans as far as transfer rumours are concerned.
Arsene Wenger has already started preparing his winter transfer strategy which – by the looks of it – could include one or two potentially big-name arrivals.
British media have put a new spin on the whole Nabil Fekir story we detailed last week, claiming that Gunners are prepared to invest up to £60 million to land the in-form 24-year-old Lyon playmaker, who is seen as a direct replacement for Mesut Ozil.
The German international is only one of the number of players who could leave Emirates this winter. .......Read more here.....

According to reports from the Metro (among others), Arsenal are lining up a £35million bid for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha as a replacement for wantaway Chilean international Alexis Sanchez.
The Metro reports that Manchester City could renew their interest in Sanchez in the winter transfer window. However, if the Chilean fails to secure a move in the January transfer window, he will likely leave the Gunners next summer as a free agent.
That obviously means Arsenal need to find a replacement for the 28-year-old, as well as Mesut Ozil who also looks set to leave. .......Read more here.....

According to reports from Italian publication TuttoMercatoWeb, claim that Italian giants Juventus are monitoring Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin. The report also suggests that the Bianconeri have already been in touch with the Spaniard’s agent.
Bellerin has often been linked with a move away from north London, with boyhood Barcelona mooted as his likely next destination. There were even claims in the summer that the Catalan giants had agreed on terms to join them last summer. However, it seems there is also interest from Italy.
Bellerin’s mixed form of late .......Read more here.....

It’s not an old piece of news but the transfer rumour mill has once again picked up on a lead that Lyon star Nabil Fekir could be on his way to London.
Arsene Wenger is said to be back in the race to sign the 24-year-old versatile attacking midfielder who can fill in various roles up in the final third.
Fekir has made a scintillating start to the new season in France with Lyon and already has 12 goals on his tally in merely 15 games. Having emerged as one of the most lethal players in the French top flight, Fekir has turned plenty of heads, including Arsene Wenger’s. .......Read more here.....

No one expected the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to be in a positive mood after a 3-1 loss at the hands of Manchester City but the experienced French tactician seems to be losing the plot.
You can’t hold your hopes high for a positive result against an attacking force such as Manchester City’s with a midfielder as a make-shift defender in the middle of a three-man defence. You can’t.
Especially if that midfielder is Francis Coquelin, a player not exactly known for his reliability and versatility. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal suffered a 3-1 defeat against Premier League leaders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
City took less than two minutes of the game to have a clear opening. The Citizens hit the visitors on the counter-attacking as Raheem Sterling broke at pace, before finding Kevin De Bruyne.
The Belgian international then played a reverse pass to Sergio Aguero, who from a tight angle inside the penalty area fired just wide of Petr Cech’s post. Arsenal’s first threat of the game came on five minutes, as Alex Iwobi fired well over the bar from distance. .......Read more here.....
