Update on injuries 0

Arsenal currently have seven players on their injured list, and they’ve provided an update on their recovery progress via the official website. The season has entered it’s part when the schedule is jam-packed, and having as many players available as possible will be of vital importance for manager Unai Emery.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan injured his right ankle in Arsenal’s 4-2 win over Vorskla Poltava in the Europa League opener last Thursday. Having missed the Premier League clash with Everton on Sunday, he is currently being assessed ahead of the Carabao Cup game against Championship side Brentford on Wednesday.

Unai Emery claims Premier League is harder than La Liga 0

During a recent interview with Sky Sports, Arsenal manager Unai Emery claimed, in one way or another, that the Premier League is harder than La Liga. That, in itself, seems like a bizarre revelation to some – but we wholeheartedly believe in it and can completely see where he’s coming from. After all, this is a man who has managed in both and therefore has a fairly good perspective on something that, for the longest time, fans have been heavily debating.

Looking ahead to Brentford 0

Arsenal will be returning to the Emirates for the third straight game tomorrow night, as they take on Championship side Brentford in the League (or Carabao if you want to be awkward about it) Cup. The attendances likely aren’t going to be great, as was the case in the Europa League, and that’s one of the primary things that the Gunners need to look out for. This serves as a big day out for the second tier side and they’ll probably bring some impressive numbers, and as a result, there’s a good chance that they’re going to outsing the home side.

The Ozil and Ramsey issue 0

There are positives and negatives that can be taken from any and all Premier League games. Even if you get whitewashed 7-0, there still may be a moment of brilliance that occurred which gives you some kind of hope as you move forward. When it comes to the Gunners, however, there are one or two negatives stemming from the win over Everton yesterday. Don’t get us wrong, it’s great that they were able to secure a 2-0 victory which keeps their winning streak going, but not everything can be perfect in this game and we’ve seen that time and time again – especially with Arsenal Football Club.

Arsenal keep the ball rolling with win against Everton 0

Posted on September 24, 2018 by Harry Kettle

There were some nerves heading into Arsenal’s game against Everton at the weekend, which is to be expected given the run they’ve been on as of late. Alas, some fans continue to insist on putting pressure onto the shoulders of the players and management, so it was nice to see that the Gunners answered those calls with a 2-0 victory over the Toffees at the weekend. It certainly wasn’t simple and there were issues littered throughout the squad, but a win is a win – and a clean sheet is a clean sheet.

The Torreira problem 0

Posted on September 21, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It seems as if waiting around every corner is another obstacle for the majority of Premier League clubs these days, especially those that compete in Europe. Arsenal are no strangers to that and despite the fact they managed to come away with the three points from their game against Vorskla last night, that’ll likely be outweighed by the fact that Lucas Torreira hobbled off with a knee injury as thousands upon thousands of fans collectively held their breath.

Arsenal show both sides of the coin in Europa League win 0

Posted on September 21, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal managed to dispatch of Vorskla last night en route to a 4-2 victory, as they opened up their Europa League campaign in the only way they know how – by keeping their fans on their toes throughout the course of 90 minutes. By all accounts it was another successful night at the office for Unai Emery, who took the club’s current winning streak to four games in all competitions. Sure, that may not seem all too impressive given the kind of opposition they’ve been up against, but you can only beat what’s put in front of you and they’ve certainly done well to recover from the position they were in after the first two games of the Premier League campaign.

Cech admits doubts about Arsenal future 0

Despite the signing of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen for around ¬£20million this summer, Petr Cech has been the first-choice goalkeeper for Arsenal under Unai Emery so far. His performances have, however, been far from impressive as he struggled initially with the Spaniard’s demand to play the ball out from the back, a trait that requires the ‘keeper to be good with the ball at his feet.¬†Three straight wins after two opening defeats may have taken some of the heat off the Arsenal No. 1 at the moment, but new challenges are just around the corner.

On This Day In 2011: Arsenal scrape by Shrewsbury 0

Posted on September 20, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s time for yet another trip down memory lane, and in this instance, we’re going seven years into the past in order to have a look at a game that some may think isn’t all that important. The encounter was a League Cup tie against Shrewsbury Town, and as you can imagine, a lot of fans didn’t really care about the game at the time. Alas, when Shrewsbury took the lead at the Emirates in the first half, people began to sit up and take notice.

Excitement in the air? 0

Posted on September 20, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Tonight will see Arsenal return to the competition that provided them with their biggest heartache last season – the Europa Leauge. Their defeat over two legs against Atletico Madrid ensured that they would not be playing Champions League football in 2018/19, and everyone there that night for the second leg was fully aware of it – as well as the millions watching around the world. Now, however, we’re in a new era with a new manager, and personally, it feels like there’s a little bit of excitement in the air.
