14/1 for Lacazette to win the Golden Boot after double against the Baggies 0

Posted on September 26, 2017 by David Nugent

Alexandre Lacazette arrived at Arsenal in the summer as a goal-machine from his time with Lyon in Ligue One. On Monday night, the French striker scored a brace in the Gunners 2-0 victory over West Brom at the Emirates Stadium.

The double means that Lacazette has now scored four Premier League goals in his six top-flight appearances this season, one of which was a cameo appearance off the bench at Liverpool.

Proving doubters wrong

The French international has certainly continued where he left in his native league this season. There were question marks over whether he could be prolific in a higher standard of league. However, those doubts seem to be unfounded at the moment.

On Monday night, Arsenal recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory over West Brom at the Emirates Stadium, courtesy of a brace from Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal came close to taking the lead in the first five minutes. Alexis Sanchez saw a free-kick from the left edge of the area go just past Ben Foster’s right-hand post. The visitors went even closer to opening the score just a few minutes later.

Arsenal host West Brom at the Emirates on Monday night, as the Gunners look to continue their positive momentum in the Premier League.

Arsenal heads into this clash on the back of a 1-0 win over League One Doncaster in the League Cup in midweek. However, it was a 0-0 draw at champions Arsenal last time out in the Premier League that will send the Gunners out in good spirits.

Arsene Wenger’s side are now four games unbeaten in all competitions, having recorded three victories. The latest wins have certainly lifted the doom and gloom slightly of the fans.

Maybe Arsenal should cash in on Kieran Gibbs 0

Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs was a player that looked to have so much promise when he first broke into the Gunners first-team. However, a mixture of injury problems and a loss of form saw him struggle for first team last season.

There are now doubts over the England international’s future at the club after he was omitted from the Gunners squad for their preseason tour of Australia and China.

According to Sky Sports, West Brom have seen a £10million bid for the full-back rejected. It seems that he is more highly-rated elsewhere than in north London.

Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has not been approached by Arsenal, according to Sky Sports. The reports come after German newspaper Bild claimed that the Gunners had approached the highly-rated boss to become the club’s next boss.

Current incumbent Arsene Wenger’s future has of course been in doubt, with his contract expiring this summer. A 3-1 defeat at West Brom on Saturday hindered the team’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League.

Wenger decision ‘very soon’

As I talked about yesterday in my article Wenger stated after the Baggies game that he would reveal his future ‘very soon’. The club have insisted that the decision will be a mutual one between the club and Wenger himself.

Should Arsene Wenger be given another year at Arsenal? 2

Yesterday Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claimed that he knew what he future holds after the Frenchman saw his side slip to a 3-1 defeat at midtable West Brom.

The defeat means that the Gunners are fifth-place in the Premier League with a game in hand on fourth-place Liverpool. The north London clubs annual position in the top four looks to be in jeopardy.

Defeat only adds to speculation over Wenger’s future

The rather disappointing display and defeat in the Midlands just added to speculation over the future of Wenger at the club. It was yet another defeat in what has been a highly disappointing run of form of late for the Gunners.

Arsenal suffer poor defeat at West Brom 0

Arsenal’s top-four hopes were handed a major blow on Saturday afternoon, as the Gunners suffered a 3-1 defeat at West Brom.

The Gunners had the first shot on goal after six minutes. Alexis Sanchez played Nacho Monreal in down the flank and the full-backs cross looked to be heading to Theo Walcott before Foster smothered the ball.

The home side then forced Petr Cech into his first save of the game, as the veteran goalkeeper denied James McClean from a tight angle. However, from the resulting corner kick, the Baggies took the lead.

On Saturday lunchtime Arsenal head to the Hawthorns to face West Brom in a massive game for the Gunners hopes of securing a top-four spot.

West Brom are currently eighth in the Premier League table and will have hopes of catching seventh-place Everton. Seventh place looks set to be enough to guarantee Europa League football next season. However, the Baggies are seven points behind the Toffees in the race for seventh spot.

The home team suffered a 3-0 hammering at Everton last time out, after being defeated 2-0 at home in their previous home game against Crystal Palace. That defeat against the Eagles ended a run of four-straight home wins for the Baggies in the English top-flight.

West Brom may be obliging opponents for Arsenal 0

It is safe to say that Arsenal have not enjoyed the best of campaigns. However, this season there is a very similar theme for the Gunners. Out of the Champions League and having a major fight on their hands for a top-four spot this season, which they are currently odds of 6/4 to achieve this season.

In the early kick-off on Saturday, the Gunners face what on paper looks like a tough trip to face West Brom at the Hawthorns. The Baggies have been superb on home soil in recent months, but things have taken a turn for the worse of late.

It’s been a frustrating week for Arsenal Football Club, who have been given a huge blow in the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

The Bavarians eliminated Gunners 10-2 on aggregate with another compelling display that left fans fuming at Arsene Wenger and even staging protest to show their discontent with the boss.

The French tactician has endured 20 long years at the helm of the North London club, but the supporters seem to be growing tired of lack of silverware and the club’s inability to make a break at the international stage for seven years in a row.
