Arsenal lack a killer instinct 0

Posted on December 17, 2017 by David Nugent

The Arsenal players like to make life interesting for their supporters. Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium was a good example of that theory.

Arsenal looked in complete control in the first half and Newcastle barely threatened the Gunners goal. However, Arsenal failed to score a killer second goal.

As it is near the season of giving, the Arsenal defence decided to give the visitors some great opportunities to something from this game. Fortunately, for the Gunners, Newcastle could not find the net with a SAT NAV at the minute.

Arsenal struggled to make an impact on the West Ham goal in Wednesday night’s goalless draw. One of the few positives of the Gunners display was a decent display from central midfielder Jack Wilshere.

The England international was making his first Premier League start of the campaign after making all his starts this season in the League Cup and Europa League. It was, in fact, Wilshere’s first league appearance for Arsenal since May 2016 due to a loan spell at Bournemouth last season.

Arsenal were held to a goalless draw by struggling West Ham at the London Stadium in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

The Gunners controlled the opening exchanges. However, the first attempt on goal did not arrive until the tenth minute. West Ham ‘keeper Adrian got down to comfortably save Alexis Sanchez’s effort.

On 15 minutes, West Ham winger Marko Arnautovic saw a headed effort ruled out for offside. Arsenal came forward again on 23 minutes. A good team move involving Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud resulted in the ball being played to Sanchez, whose deflected effort flew wide of the post.

West Ham newly-appointed manager David Moyes is looking to further strengthen the Hammers squad during the January transfer window in order to boost his survival chances.

Having invested a good load of money on new signings during summer and despite boosting the squad by the likes of Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic, West Ham have endured a difficult start to new Premier League season.

The club hierarchy decided to part ways with Slaven Bilic and appoint former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager David Moyes, who managed to tighten up his side and make Hammers a more organized defensively.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal travel the short distance to West Ham’s London Stadium for a midweek Premier League clash.

The home side will be heading into the clash in good spirits, following a 1-0 home win against reigning champions Chelsea last time out. The win means the Irons moved up to 18th place in the table.

David Moyes’ side are now only in the relegation zone on goal difference. With 17th place West Brom facing a difficult game at Liverpool, anything from this match would move the Hammers out of the drop zone.

David Moyes is slowly making his stamp at West Ham with Hammers looking tougher and tighter at the back in their last couple of matches.

Former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager saw his great work pay off with a remarkable 1-0 win over Premier League champions Chelsea at the weekend and the Hammers are undoubtedly be highly motivated to take another big scalp when they welcome Arsenal at London Stadium.

A tense tussle is expected between the two London rivals with Arsenal under pressure to get back up on their feet following a frustrating 1-1 stalemate at Southampton.

Arsenal cannot afford to lost to West Ham on Wednesday 0

It was not the result Arsenal were looking for on Sunday as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton in their Premier League game. The dropping of two points in conjunction with the fact that Manchester City can go 17 points clear of the Gunners means the weekend has been a hugely disappointing one.

Charlie Austin struck early for the hosts as he put Southampton ahead. Arsenal enjoyed a huge share of the possession, but they were awful when it came to any kind of incisive ball. In fact, they seemed more concerned with passing it sideways rather than going forward.

He is an Arsenal youth product and a footballer who’s been around the club for full 16 years, but is jack Wilshere’s Arsenal career nearing its end?

It’s a question that keeps popping ahead of every transfer window.

This recurring issue once again hit the surface just at the time when the injury-plagued star got back to full fitness and back into Arsenal squad.

Wilshere completed full 90 minutes in the Carabao Cup 1-0 victory over Doncaster and made 23 minutes on the pitch in a 3-1 Europa League win over FC Koln before that.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is said to be favouring a move to West Ham if he is to leave the Emirates this summer.

The England international midfielder Jack Wilshere faces uncertain future at Arsenal. Having spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, Wilshere returned to Arsenal on the back of yet another injury and looks set to be given a free pass to leave the club this summer.

Wilshere still has a year left in his Arsenal deal and earlier reports claimed he could be available for transfer for paltry £9 million although the Gunners are hoping to sell him for more lucrative £20 million.

Will signing Lacazette mean the end of Giroud at Arsenal? 1

Posted on July 03, 2017 by David Nugent

It seems that Arsenal are in fact close to the signing of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, as the French clubs president Jean-Michel Aulas has told French media outlet Le Progres : “Alexandre Lacazette’s transfer to Arsenal could be actioned within the next day or two.

“The figure reported by the English media of around €67m (including €12m in add-ons) is impossible and not realistic. Arsenal’s first offer was around €45m, the transfer will be concluded in the range of €45m to €50m.”
