Should Flamini be given Premier League chance? 0

Posted on September 24, 2015 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s 2-1 Capital One Cup win over Tottenham in the third round was a rather strange one, not in the natural of the game, but the identity of the player who scored a brace.

French midfielder Mathieu Flamini is not known for his goalscoring prowess, as he had previously scored just 11 goals in over 200 appearances for the Gunners in two spells at the north London club.

He took the opening goal like a striker and his second goal was a strike any of the world’s best would have been proud of.

The first real goal threat came on 13 minutes through the visitors. Full-back Kieran Gibbs did well down the wing and crossed the ball into the Olivier Giroud, who failed to get meaningful contact. However the ball fell to Joel Campbell 12 yards out and the Costa Rican headed over the bar.

The Gunners took the lead on 26 minutes. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s 25 yard free-kick was parried by Michel Vorm, but French midfielder Mathieu Flamini was well-positioned to slot home.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is expected to lead the line against fierce North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Capital One Cup third round, with manager Arsene Wenger likely to rest first-choice attacker Theo Walcott for their weekend clash in the Premier League. Giroud has struggled for form this season, but could kickstart his campaign with a good performance at White Hart Lane.

North London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal go head-to-head at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night in the third round of the Capital One Cup.

Tottenham have hit a bit of form of late, winning their last two Premier League games. Last time out Mauricio Pochettino’s side defeated Crystal Palace 1-0 at White Hart Lane, with the only goal of the game coming from South Korean international Heung-Min Son.

Spurs have looked solid at the back in recent games, conceding just one goal in their last four competitive games. They also have a good record against Arsenal at White Hart Lane, having won three out of the last four games against the Gunners on home soil.

Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin should be in contention to face arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday, according to the Daily Mirror.

The French footballer started the weekend’s derby match with Chelsea, but had to come off at half-time having suffered a knee injury near the end of the first period.

However, it would appear as through the injury is not serious and that Coquelin was only substituted as Arsene Wenger made a tactical change after the Gunners were down to ten men.

Arsenal fans have decided to launch a petition against Mike Dean refereeing another Gunners game, after the official failed to punish Diego Costa for a flailing arm on Laurent Koscielny, then a confrontation with Brazilian centre-back Gabriel that saw the former-Villarreal defender dismissed.

The petition has caught fire very quickly, with close to 50,000 people already getting behind the move. The petition claims that Costa was involved in four incidents that could have earnt him a red card, yet he only received a yellow card.

Costa could yet face retrospective punishment by the FA, as they will decide later today if the Spanish international deserves sanctions for his behaviour against Arsenal.

According to Italian website Calciomercato, Arsenal are keeping tabs on Basel’s highly-rated young Switzerland international Breel Embolo, who is currently rated in the £10million bracket.

The 18-year-old is regarded as something of a wonderkid and is expected to have a bright future in the game. Embolo featured for the Swiss against England in a 2-0 defeat in last nights Euro 2016 qualifier and looked like a confident and strong youngster.

Arsenal are not the first English club to be linked with a move for Embolo though, as Spurs were previously linked with a bid for the youngster, while Everton were also being linked with a deadline day move for the highly-rated forward.

According to the Metro, Arsenal are close to completing a deal for Dynamo Moscow striker Aleksandr Kokorin. The 24-year-old is highly-rated and the Metro have picked-up on reports from Russia suggesting Kokorin is close to a move to north London.

The Russia international has previously been linked with moves to Tottenham, Manchester United and PSG. Kokorin scored ten goals in all competitions last season, including two in eight Champions League appearances.

The Gunners have scored just two goals in their opening three Premier League games this season and have failed to score in both their home games.

Arsenal draws Tottenham in Capital One Cup 0

Posted on August 26, 2015 by David Nugent

Arsenal have been drawn away at bitter-rivals Tottenham in the third round of the Capital One Cup. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger usually uses the competition to blood youngsters and give players game time.

However, it seems unlikely that Gunners fans will want the veteran Frenchman to do that against their arch-rivals, even if the competition is very low on the clubs list of priorities this season as always. The Gunners are still just odds of 8/1 to win the competition, despite their lack of interest in previous seasons.

According to the BBC, reported Arsenal target Morgan Schneiderlin is about to make a £25million move from Southampton. The move comes after the 25-year-old had a medical at United on Sunday night.

Schneiderlin was previously heavily linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium, but it seems now that he is heading to Manchester instead.

The France international was mooted as a possible solution to the Gunners defensive midfield conundrum before compatriot Francis Coquelin emerged as first choice in the position. Tottenham were also linked with a bid for the former-Strasbourg star.
