Arsenal record comfortable win over Brighton 0

Posted on October 01, 2017 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal recorded a comfortable 2-0 win over Brighton at the Emirates Stadium, with goals from Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi enough to give the Gunners three points.

Arsenal hit the front straight away and came close to taking the lead in the first two minutes. French striker Alexandre Lacazette smashed an effort from long-range against Mat Ryan’s post.

The visitors offered their first real threat on five minutes. Pascal Gross fired in a free kick, which saw Izzy Brown glance towards goal, but wide of Petr Cech’s left post. Arsenal started to dominate possession and Alexis Sanchez saw a low effort saved comfortably by Ryan.

Arsenal will be looking to continue their recent good form when they host Brighton at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners have hit form of late after an unconvincing start to the season. Arsene Wenger’s team have now recorded five wins and a draw in all competitions. Last time out the team from north London defeated Belarusian side BATE Borisov 4-2 in the Europa League.

The home side are now three games unbeaten in the top-flight, having recorded two wins and a draw, keeping clean sheets in all three games.

Three wins on the bounce are enough of a guarantee that our boys will be confident enough heading into the Brighton clash this weekend.

Arsenal play host to the Premier League newcomers on Sunday afternoon hoping to extend their winning run and move up the ladder from the seventh place they currently occupy.

Wenger’s men haven’t had the best of starts to their new campaign but improvement is visible and evident despite some remaining inconsistencies.

A win over Brighton could possibly push our boys into the top four if other results go our way and it’s not very difficult to see the importance behind grabbing all three points on Sunday.

Arsenal face stiff competition to sign Dylan Asonganyi 0

Arsene Wenger’s reputation of a football manager who pays great deal of attention to young and talented footballers gives us no reason to be surprised over the reports linking Gunners with MK Dons starlet Dylan Asongangyi.

The 16-year-old forward is the shiny pearl of MK Dons’ Under-18 side who’s been having a blistering start to the 2017/18 campaign.

Asonganyi scored nine goals in seven games for his team and his imposing goalscoring record has caught the attention of the Premier League’s biggest clubs – Arsenal included.

Ahead of Thursday’s Europa League trip to face BATE Borisov, manager Arsene Wenger has admitted his young players are fighting for their Arsenal future, reports the Express.

The Gunners boss has named a young side to travel to Belarus, with the likes of Vlad Dragomir and Charlie Gilmour being surprise selections, and has revealed this could be the only chance many of the youngsters will get to impress at senior level.

“This is the kind of job you do not get 10 opportunities to play for Arsenal. When you get it, even if they only get 20 minutes, you have to convince people you have the qualities to do it and you have the courage to play and show your qualities,” said Wenger.

Inter turn down chance to sign Ozil 0

Posted on September 27, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to Calciomercato via talkSPORT, Inter Milan have passed down the chance to sign Arsenal and Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil. The Serie A outfit were linked with a part exchange move that would see Joao Mario heading to the Emirates, but it now seems Inter will pursue other targets.

Ozil is in the last year of his contract with Arsenal, having so far rejected an extension. The 28-year-old had some fleeting interest in his signature over the summer, but suitors failed to match his £40m price tag and lofty wage demands.

14/1 for Lacazette to win the Golden Boot after double against the Baggies 0

Posted on September 26, 2017 by David Nugent

Alexandre Lacazette arrived at Arsenal in the summer as a goal-machine from his time with Lyon in Ligue One. On Monday night, the French striker scored a brace in the Gunners 2-0 victory over West Brom at the Emirates Stadium.

The double means that Lacazette has now scored four Premier League goals in his six top-flight appearances this season, one of which was a cameo appearance off the bench at Liverpool.

Proving doubters wrong

The French international has certainly continued where he left in his native league this season. There were question marks over whether he could be prolific in a higher standard of league. However, those doubts seem to be unfounded at the moment.

On Monday night, Arsenal recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory over West Brom at the Emirates Stadium, courtesy of a brace from Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal came close to taking the lead in the first five minutes. Alexis Sanchez saw a free-kick from the left edge of the area go just past Ben Foster’s right-hand post. The visitors went even closer to opening the score just a few minutes later.

Arsenal v West Brom Premier League Preview 0

Posted on September 24, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal host West Brom at the Emirates on Monday night, as the Gunners look to continue their positive momentum in the Premier League.

Arsenal heads into this clash on the back of a 1-0 win over League One Doncaster in the League Cup in midweek. However, it was a 0-0 draw at champions Arsenal last time out in the Premier League that will send the Gunners out in good spirits.

Arsene Wenger’s side are now four games unbeaten in all competitions, having recorded three victories. The latest wins have certainly lifted the doom and gloom slightly of the fans.

Inter looking to tie up Mesut Ozil in January 0

Posted on September 23, 2017 by David Nugent

As one of my colleagues revealed earlier, Arsenal now look resigned to losing German playmaker Mesut Ozil. The 28-year-old’s contract is up next summer and it now looks highly unlikely he will sign a new deal.

Like teammate Alexis Sanchez, the Germany international has turned down numerous big money offers of a new deal at the Emirate Stadium and looks set to leave the north London club in the near future.

According to the Daily Mirror via TMW, ambitious Italian outfit Inter are set to hold talks in January with the playmaker about a summer move. Any move next summer would leave the Gunners empty-handed.
