Arsenal fought to a 2-1 win over Swansea on Saturday as they continued their fine run of form in recent weeks.
Sam Clucas struck for the visitors as the Swans scored with their first shot on target, but goals from Sead Kolasinac and Aaron Ramsey saw the Gunners past the Welsh side.
The win means that Arsenal have now taken 19 points from their 10 games, the same as defending champions Chelsea, while they have cut the gap between themselves and Tottenham to just one point. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Swansea on Saturday afternoon. When the Gunners went behind in the first half completely unexpectedly, it looked like it could have been one of those inexplicable defeats for Arsene Wenger’s men.
Second half goals from Sead Kolasinac and Aaron Ramsey were enough, in the end, to give the north London side the victory.
Home record is very encouraging
While Arsenal’s form has been unconvincing at times in recent years, the Gunners home form of late has been outstanding in the Premier League. For much of Wenger’s reign, Arsenal’s home record has been outstanding. .......Read more here.....

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. .......Read more here.....

It’s no secret that Arsenal’s defence is the weaker half of their team. Offensively, they are up there with the best on their day with the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette world class attacking forces. At the back though, things are not quite as outstanding.
Petr Cech provides a solid and vocal presence at the back of the team, while Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac are fantastic wide-defenders that cover the three centre-halves when the opposition’s wingers look to exploit the width of the pitch. .......Read more here.....

When Arsenal started their Premier League campaign, the Gunners looked well covered in numbers anyway in the centre of defence.
However, an injury sustained by German international Shkodran Mustafi, along with French defender Laurent Koscielny being absent through injury have limited Arsene Wenger’s centre-back options for the near future.
The Gunners face a trip to Watford on Saturday evening, in a game the side from north London are odds of 8/13 to win.
The likely absence of the aforementioned pair means that Wenger will have to call on some of his other defenders to fill the void. .......Read more here.....

On Sunday afternoon, Chelsea and Arsenal played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge. The biggest talking about the game turned out to be a late red card for Chelsea defender David Luiz.
Chelsea made a bright start to the game, with former Blues goalkeeper Petr Cech having to produce good saves from Victor Moses and then Pedro. The home side threatened again, as Cesc Fabregas played a one-two with Willian before the Spaniard fire an effort towards goal only for a combination of Danny Welbeck and Cech at the near post to snub out the danger. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal are preparing to face London rivals and English champions at Stamford Bridge on Sunday lunchtime. No doubt, it is a very difficult game and one that could prove crucial to the Gunners season.
On paper, Arsenal look unlikely to win at Stamford Bridge and you would have to be a brave man to back the Gunners to emerge from south west London with a win. However, the performance of a weakened team in the second half of Thursday 3-1 win over Koln should give the visitors some encouragement.

Arsenal kicked off their Europa League campaign with a 3-1 victory over Koln on Thursday night. The kick-off was delayed by an hour due to crowd safety issues, but that mattered very little in the end to the Gunners, as they put in a strong second half display to see off the visitors.
The visitors scored with virtually the first attempt on goal on ten minutes. David Ospina rushed out of his goal to clear a long ball over the top, only for Bittencourt to find Cordoba, who lofted the ball back over the Colombian from around 40 yards out and into the net. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a comfortable 3-0 win over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with Danny Welbeck grabbing a brace and Alexandre Lacazette also getting on the scoresheet.
The Gunners took the lead on six minutes with the first real attempt on goal of the game. Sead Kolasinac crossed and found Danny Welbeck, whose effort off the shoulder wrong-footed Asmir Begovic in the Bournemouth goal.
The home side had the next attempt on goal on 13 minutes. Kolasinac strode forward again but lost the ball. The ball then broke for Granit Xhaka 30 yards out and the Swiss star saw a first-time effort parried by Begovic. .......Read more here.....

In a month where everything seemed to go wrong for Arsenal, summer signing Sead Kolasinac won the Gunners Player of the Month.
In truth, there were slim pickings among the Gunners players for the award. However, the former Schalke player managed to win the award, despite only playing in two of the team’s three league games this season.
The fans vote was maybe a vote of no confidence in the players that appeared in the 4-0 hammering at Liverpool, than a vote of confidence for the Bosnia and Herzegovina star.
Made a mixed start to his Arsenal career .......Read more here.....
