Glad that Kaboul is not heading for Arsenal 1

Posted on April 03, 2014 by David Nugent

The Daily Star were yesterday claiming that Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul could be heading for the Emirates Stadium on a free transfer this summer. Kaboul has endured an injury-hit season and the French international is expected to leave White Hart Lane when his contract expires this summer.

This rumour broke on Wednesday, but I am surprised it did not break on Tuesday, which was April 1st, a day famous for April fool’s day jokes of course.

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has defended his decision to take a picture with a couple of his teammates following the final whistle of Arsenal’s 1-0 win against fierce North London rivals Tottenham at White Hart Lane – a ground they had not won at in the league since 2007.

‘I asked Paul Johnson (Arsenal’s equipment manager) to bring my phone on to the pitch after the game and grabbed a selfie with the Arsenal fans, which was brilliant. They were fantastic all afternoon. They sang their hearts out and enjoyed themselves. It was fantastic for us too and we wanted to give something back to them.’

Gunners need to show title credentials against Chelsea 0

Arsenal showed great spirit to defeat local-rivals Tottenham 1-0 at White Hart Lane on Sunday. Spurs had more of the ball at times during the north London derby, but the likes of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny again put in solid displays at the back to keep the home side out.

Ground out

The victory over Spurs was not pretty on the eye, as Arsenal ground out out the win they needed to keep pace with their rivals. Arsenal sides in recent seasons have struggled to grind out results.

Arsenal defeated Tottenham 1-0 in the north London derby at White Hart Lane on Sunday. An early Tomas Rosicky goal was enough to win it for the Gunners. The win kept Arsene Wenger’s men well in the race for the Premier League title.

Arsenal made a dream start to the game by taking the lead after just two minutes. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain laid the ball off to Tomas Rosicky just outside the area and the Czech midfielder smashed a fantastic effort into the top corner of Hugo Lloris net.

Can Arsenal end seven-year wait for a White Hart Lane victory? 0

Arsenal travel to face fierce North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon, with Wenger’s men enduring a seven-year wait for a win in the league.

White Hart Lane hasn’t been a happy ground for the Gunners, as they’ve tasted defeat in two of their last three league meetings away to Spurs.

However, they are big favourites to end the wait for a win, as Tottenham are in awful form themselves of late, and their confidence is very low following back-to back defeats to Chelsea & Benfica.

Chance of a league double over Tottenham since 2007 0

Posted on March 16, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

There’s no question who is the better side between Arsenal & Tottenham. But for bragging purposes, supporters will always want to win the local derbies more than anything regardless of their immediate league situation.

Arsenal have a chance to do the league double over Tottenham for the first time in seven years, and such a win would secure their status as the top North London side, if there really was any doubt.

The only downside is their recent record at White Hart Lane. Despite being a club in Arsenal’s shadow, the Gunners haven’t fared well away to Tottenham in the league, but are being backed by the bookies to end their winless run.

Tottenham vs. Arsenal Premier League preview 0

Arsenal face a short trip to neighbours Tottenham on Sunday in the north London derby in a vital game for both sides. The Gunners could kick-off on Sunday ten points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea, albeit with a game in-hand, as the Blues play on Saturday evening.

Arsene Wenger’s side go into the clash looking to bounce back from Tuesday’s Champions League exit at the hands of Bayern Munich. The Gunners earned a creditable 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena, but exited the competition 3-1 on aggregate after a 2-0 defeat in the first leg.

Arsenal go into the North London derby hoping to make amends for the disappointing defeat to Stoke City as well as try and get their Premier League title bid back on track. And having beaten their local rivals twice already this season, the Gunners clearly have reason for optimism.

The Irish bookmaker will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast singles on the match if Santi Cazorla scores anytime.

Midfielder’s absence has had big impact on Arsenal’s season 0

Posted on March 14, 2014 by David Nugent

Arsenal have a number of talented midfielders in their squad. One of them has endured almost a career of abuse and criticism in his six years at the club, until this season that is. That midfielder is young Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

Without doubt he was one of the top performers in the Premier League in the first half of the season, scoring goals and creating chances for his teammates. He arguably became the most influential player in the Gunners team.

Vermaelen could lose his place at left-back with Gibbs & Monreal returning 0

Posted on March 13, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

Despite Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen putting in an impressive showing in Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League, manager Arsene Wenger has hinted the Belgian could be replaced for a natural left-back for the side’s North London derby against Tottenham.

‘Kieran Gibbs has a test tomorrow but I am hopeful that Nacho Monreal will be fit. They both have a good chance.’

Vermaelen, 28, has played a full 90 minutes in both of the Gunners’ recent cup games to Everton and Bayern Munich – performing well in both. He’s a natural centre-back by trade, but can play well as a full-back.
