Nelson ready to sign a new contract 0

Reiss Nelson had his full debut in Arsenal’s 3-2 win against Southampton on Sunday, where he put in a decent performance.

At the age of 18, it is very important for the winger to choose his steps carefully. Amid interest from top European clubs, including Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, the Evening Standard report that the youngster is ready to sign a new deal at Arsenal.

His current contract expires in the summer of 2019, and there have been negotiations between the club and the player about putting pen to paper on a fresh long-term agreement.

A few observations from Arsenal’s win over Southampton 0

Arsenal beat Southampton 3-2 at the Emirates in their 32nd game of the Premier League season, courtesy of one goal by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a brace from Danny Welbeck to overrule goals from Shane Long and Charlie Austin for the Saints.

Welbeck and Iwobi

This duo can be fairly considered as a pair of squad players, the manager’s tools for when his preferred options are unavailable or need rest. With the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette fully fit and firing, they are hardly likely to get a look-in.

No competitive edge and no pressure.

That’s the easiest way to describe the forthcoming Europa League clash at the Emirates between Arsenal and BATE Borisov.

Having already secured top spot in their group with one game to spare, Gunners welcome the Belarusian team in this dead rubber in London that still is a fine chance for a quality run out.

Arsene Wenger is expected to rotate heavily with the likes of Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock and Ainsley Maitland-Niles all pushing for a starting berth.

Martin Keown heaps praise on Reiss Nelson 0

Former-Arsenal legend Martin Keown has praised youngster Reiss Nelson after his performance in the Europa League clash with Cologne on Thursday evening. Despite the 1-0 loss, Keown clearly sees the player’s performance as a huge positive to come from the game.

It was not Arsenal’s night in Germany as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Cologne via a Sehrou Guirassy penalty. The scoreline was a disappointing one, but it did not stop Arsenal from securing their place in the knock-out stages of the tournament, although it did end their run of unbeaten games in the competition.

Arsenal have the chance to officially seal their place in the knockout stages of the Europa League on Thursday night as the Gunners travel to Koln.

The Gunners are currently top of Group H and six points clear of third-place BATE Borisov, who have a vastly inferior goal difference to the visitors.

However, a point at the Rhein Energie Stadion on Thursday would officially see Arsene Wenger’s side progress to the knockout stages of the competition.

Arsenal have seen something of an upturn in form over the last week as they have picked up three wins on the bounce.

A victory over Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League was followed by the 5-2 thumping of Everton in the Premier League, while the Gunners claimed their third victory in a row as they snuck past Norwich 2-1 in the Carabao Cup.

While some would question whether Arsenal have faced a top quality opponent over those three games, the Gunners had to win them nonetheless, and they looked very good offensively in their victory over the Toffees.

Arsenal v Doncaster Carabao Cup Preview 0

Arsenal return to action on Wednesday night, as the Gunners host League One Doncaster Rovers at the Emirates Stadium in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Arsenal’s results have improved of late and spirits have lifted slightly at the club following the team’s recent performances. Wins against Bournemouth and Koln were followed up by a creditable 0-0 draw at London rivals and champions Chelsea on Sunday.

The draw means the Gunners are now unbeaten in their last three games in all competitions. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger does not usually take the League Cup seriously, but will not want his side to lose any momentum built up by their positive results of late.

It doesn’t come quite often that a Premier League side will be given such favourable odds for a match against a League One club.

Arsenal head into the Wednesday’s EFL Cup match on the back of an impressive goalless draw away at Chelsea and will be keen to record an easy win in front of their home fans ahead of the West Brom clash next Monday.

The Gunners are on a busy schedule since they have a Europa League visit to BATE coming just three days after the WBA test and Arsene Wenger is expected to ring plenty of changes to his line-up for the Doncaster match.

For the first time in 21 years, the Premier League giants from north London are not in the Champions League.

A disappointing domestic campaign resulted in Gunners finishing outside the top four last term, forcing them to settle for a place in a less alluring competition of Europa League. Arsene Wenger promises not to take this European challenge lightly, but is still expected to treat it the same way he treats the League Cup of FA Cup.

Europa League will be a perfect chance for certain players to gain match fitness and valuable international experience, while for others it will be perhaps the only chance to feel the pride of playing in the first team.

Ox exit may bring back some tactical sanity to Arsenal 0

For me, Arsenal losing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on deadline day to Liverpool was not a disaster. I just want to know why it took the two clubs until so late in the transfer window to agree a deal.

The midfielder never looked like signing a new deal in north London. If Arsenal would have sold him earlier in the summer, they could have brought a replacement in. However, this is Arsenal and nothing seems to happen the way it should.

Take for example Arsene Wenger team selection in recent weeks. At times Hector Bellerin has been playing as a left wing-back, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been playing on the opposite flank.
