Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing highly-rated youngster Ben Wilmot but the London side face a battle with Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur as the Stevenage defender has been attracting a lot of interest.
Arsenal fell to a hugely damaging defeat in their last Premier League game as they were beaten by Tottenham. Harry Kane was the only scorer in the match as the English striker outshone the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
The loss was one that consigned Arsenal to their eighth defeat of the season, while they are now seven points behind Tottenham in fifth, and eight behind Chelsea in fourth. .......Read more here.....

Paul Merson has questioned the intensity of Arsenal’s front three as they struggled to give Tottenham’s defence any kind of problems in their Premier League derby last weekend.
Arsenal fell to a hugely disappointing 1-0 loss at the hands of Tottenham on Saturday. Harry Kane was the only player to find the back of the net in the game as he outshone the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
The victory has seen Tottenham open up a seven-point lead over the Gunners, while Chelsea in fourth are eight points ahead of Arsene Wenger’s men. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal has a reputation for failing to show up in big games. Saturday’s north London derby 1-0 defeat by Tottenham was a prime example. Yet, the previous week the Gunners smashed Everton 5-1 at home. The two results suggest that Arsene Wenger’s team are just track bullies.
Good enough to a point
For me, until the January transfer window, it felt like the quality of the Arsenal squad was deteriorating. The signings of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were good signings. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal returned to type on Saturday afternoon, suffering a 1-0 defeat at arch-rivals Tottenham in the north London derby.
The Gunners kept the home side relatively quiet at Wembley in the first half of Saturday’s game. However, in the second half, Mauricio Pochettino’s side could have added to their one-goal lead.
Arsene Wenger’s side did have some limited chances in the second period. However, it would be a stretch to say that Arsenal deserved anything out of the game.
Big attacking players failed to turn up .......Read more here.....

On Saturday afternoon, Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game in the north London derby, in a defeat that could prove very costly to Arsenal’s Champions League hopes.
The first real threat on home goal came on nine minutes, as Shkodran Mustafi inadvertently prodded the ball towards his own goal ahead of Harry Kane, only for Petr Cech to save and put the ball out for a corner kick. Tottenham’s Eric Dier headed well wide of goal on 14 minutes from a corner kick. .......Read more here.....

It’s last been in 2014 that Arsenal managed to beat their north London rivals away.
The last win over the neighbours was recorded at White Hart Lane and Gunners now have a fine chance of ending the run at the national stadium which has thus far been a fortunate ground for Arsene Wenger’s men.
Arsenal won their last nine matches at Wembley and are most certainly looking to make it a perfect ten.
Gunners head over to lock horns with fifth-placed Tottenham high on confidence following a morale-boosting 5-1 win over Everton last time out, which saw the January signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang open his account for his new club. .......Read more here.....

On Saturday lunchtime, Tottenham host Arsenal at Wembley in a crucial north London derby.
The home side are fifth in the table. However, they are just a point behind fourth-place Chelsea in the race for a Champions League spot. Mauricio Pochettino’s side drew 2-2 at Liverpool last time out. However, they needed a stoppage-time penalty kick from striker Harry Kane to rescue anything from the game.
The draw means that the home side are now undefeated in their last seven Premier League outings, although three of their last five league games have finished in draws. .......Read more here.....

Arsene Wenger is keen to close the gap in the Premier League table between Arsenal and Tottenham with a win this weekend as the Gunners take on their London rivals in a massively important match as the race for the top-four continues to heat up.
Arsenal’s last Premier League game ended in a superb victory as they dismantled Everton. The Toffees were no match for the Gunners on the day as they were hammered 5-1 at the Emirates Stadium. .......Read more here.....

One of my colleagues wrote this morning that Arsenal youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles is set to be handed a new deal with the north London club.
The 20-year-old has impressed playing out-of-position at left wing-back for Arsene Wenger’s team in the last few months. Maitland-Niles is naturally a midfielder and made a number of appearances for England under-20’s in his favoured position as the junior lions won the World Cup.
Ainsley-Niles selection at in an unfamiliar position has blocked the path to the starting eleven of versatile Bosnian international Sead Kolasinac, who arrived at the club from Schalke in the summer. .......Read more here.....
