Posted on July 09, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have filed an appeal against the red card Eddie Nketiah received in the match against Leicester City on Tuesday, according to the BBC.

The young forward was initially booked for his challenge on Leicester’s James Justin in the 75th minute, but upon being bidden to take another look at the incident on the pitch-side monitor, referee Chris Kavanagh changed his decision and sent him off. As a result, Nketiah is now banned for three matches, a standard punishment following a straight red card.

The ongoing saga surrounding Saint-Etienne and Arsenal defender William Saliba has been well documented, with both sides attempting to come to terms on a deal of some description. A week ago, the Gunners released the following statement on the matter.

“Throughout our discussions with St Etienne, our aim has been to protect the welfare of William Saliba as well as the interests of Arsenal Football Club, while honouring the terms of the loan.

“Despite the loan ending on June 30, we were willing to find a way for William to play in the [French] cup final on July 24, despite having no contractual obligation to do so.

Arsenal may have let their lead against Leicester City slip away in the final stages of the game on Tuesday, but there were a number of signs which showed how the team is progressing under the guidance of Mikel Arteta, and there is much cause for optimism at the moment.

There was, and still is, much for the former captain and assistant manager at Manchester City to deal with, but he seems to be taking one step at a time and the result is that we can slowly catch perhaps more than glimpses of the way he wants the team to play and the players he is counting on to carry his plans out in the near future.

Arsenal looked set to claim an invaluable three points in the race for the top four last night against Leicester City, but after a disastrous final 15 minutes of the game, they only managed to secure a draw. While the Foxes did come on strong in the second half, it’s safe to say that there were more than a few questionable decisions from the officials.

After the game, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta spoke with the media regarding how the game went down.

Guendouzi training alone due to disciplinary issues 0

As revealed exclusively by David Ornstein of The Athletic, Matteo Guendouzi has been banished from the first team squad to train alone with a fitness coach.

Much has been said about the 21-year-old’s disciplinary issues since Mikel Arteta took over from Unai Emery as the Arsenal head coach. The first signs of trouble came at the winter training camp in Dubai, after which he was excluded from the squad which faced Newcastle United in the Premier League. The matter appeared to have been resolved, or merely shelved, as he started the next game against Everton and it was widely believed the youngster would buckle down and work harder to control his temperament from that point on.

The relentless Premier League schedule ensures that we won’t go without football over the course of the next few weeks as we ramp up preparations for the end of the season – and the start of the next.

While fans may still be riding the high of beating Wolves at the weekend, there is simply no rest for the wicked.

Arsenal knew that they had a battle on their hands when they made the trip up to the Black Country to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers, and in the end, they surprised an awful lot of people by picking up a huge 2-0 win at Molineux.

Wolves never really seemed to get going in this game, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s men struggling to replicate the form they showed in their previous three league wins. Bukayo Saka opened the scoring just a few minutes before half time, and after overcoming a nervous second half that featured a golden effort for Adama Traore, it was Alexandre Lacazette who put the final nail in the coffin with an 86th minute strike.

While the start to Arsenal’s Premier League return after the restart was shaky, the last few games have seen them rise back up and put in a few really good performances. Of course, they’ve still got a long way to go before they can be viewed as serious European contenders, but there appears to be a bit of a spring in their step right now – and it’s been a while before we’ve been able to say that.
