Arteta reacts to disappointing Crystal Palace draw 0

Posted on January 15, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Even after a nice string of victories, one slip-up is all it takes for Arsenal fans to get wound up again. Last night, the Gunners were unable to capitalise on a golden opportunity to make a statement at the Emirates as they fell to a disappointing 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace. In many ways, you could make the argument that they even deserved to lose given how disappointing their play was at times.

After the game, manager Mikel Arteta spoke candidly about why his side wasn’t able to come away with the win.

Richard Garlick, currently the director of football for the Premier League, is set to become Arsenal’s director of football operations, as revealed by David Ornstein for The Athletic.

Garlick is set to leave his present post later this year, which he’s been in since the summer of 2018. He will succeed Huss Fahmy in the job and will be working closely with the club’s technical director Edu.

Prior to entering the world of football, Garlick worked at several law firms, and then he became the director of football administration at West Bromwich Albion. He is now a qualified solicitor specialising in sports law. In his current role, he has been charged with the tasks of overseeing football operations, football relations, youth development, coaching and young player education.

Arteta looks ahead to Crystal Palace game 0

Arsenal have been on a solid run of form as of late but if they’re serious about challenging for a place in the top four, they need to keep winning – because even the smallest slip-up in this incredibly unpredictable Premier League campaign could cost them in a big way. Their next test will come in the form of another London derby, this time at the Emirates against Crystal Palace.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta recently spoke with the media and previewed his side’s upcoming encounter against the Eagles.

Injury updates: Martinelli, Magalhaes, Partey 1

Posted on January 12, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have provided updates on the fitness of three players ahead of the Premier League match against Crystal Palace scheduled to take place on Thursday evening at the Emirates.

Gabriel Martinelli turned his right ankle during the warm-up process ahead of the FA Cup win over Newcastle United on Saturday and was consequently replaced in the line-up, having initially been named to start. The 19-year-old forward missed the start of the season through a serious knee injury, and once he recovered, he still understandably needed time to raise his fitness level to the standards required.

Arsenal to face Southampton or Shrewsbury in FA Cup fourth round 0

Posted on January 12, 2021 by Harry Kettle

As soon as Arsenal were able to dispatch of Newcastle United in the third round of the FA Cup, fans were already adjusting to the news that the draw for the fourth round – as well as the fifth round – had been made. The Gunners would’ve been hoping for a set of pretty easy draws to get them through to the quarter-final stage as they continue to try and defend their FA Cup title, but we’re not so sure that’s what they wound up with.

Rob Holding signs new Arsenal contract 0

Rob Holding has signed a new contract with Arsenal, according to numerous reports, though the club are yet to confirm it officially. He is now tied to the club until the summer of 2024, with the club having the option on extending the deal for 12 months further.

Interestingly enough, the 25-year-old defender was reportedly very close to leaving the Emirates in the summer. A loan deal with Newcastle United was mentioned, but in the end he stayed put. His future was still unclear at that point and he feared being excluded from the squad like Mesut Ozil, but those fears were allayed after talks held with manager Mikel Arteta and it should come as no surprise that the Gunners have decided to offer him fresh terms on a longer contract.

Bukayo Saka wins Player of the Month award for December 0

After the domination shown by Gabriel Magalhaes in this category to kickstart the new Premier League campaign, Arsenal fans now have a new face at the helm of the Player of the Month award – Bukayo Saka. The jury has certainly been out on whether or not the youngster is capable of being a top prospect for the Gunners, but after a strong series of performances in December, he has been recognised as one of the leading forces behind the club getting back on the winning trail.

Arsenal.com posted the following after revealing Saka as the winner.

Arteta reacts to comfortable win over Newcastle 0

Posted on January 10, 2021 by Harry Kettle

The painful run that Arsenal Football Club were on just a few weeks ago now feels like a distant memory after the Gunners made it four wins in a row last night with a nice win over Newcastle United in the FA Cup. While this victory alone doesn’t get manager Mikel Arteta out of the woods just yet, it continues to build some confidence and momentum within the squad – and that can’t be a bad thing.

After the win, Arteta spoke with the media as the attention now turns to two winnable league games against Crystal Palace and, ironically, Newcastle again next week.

Arteta looks ahead to FA Cup clash against Newcastle 0

Posted on January 09, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal’s defence of their FA Cup crown will begin tonight as they prepare to host Newcastle United in a third round clash at the Emirates. The Gunners will be coming into the game as the favourites but as we’ve all come to learn about this team, that doesn’t mean a single thing until they actually go out there and play.

Mikel Arteta is probably feeling pretty good about himself after guiding Arsenal to three straight victories, and as he attempts to try and make it four, the Spaniard has taken the time to speak with the media about this tie.

Arteta reacts to dominant West Brom win 0

Posted on January 03, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Don’t look now, but Arsenal have registered three consecutive wins in the Premier League. It’s been a tough, tough journey to get to this point but after talks of a change at the top just a few weeks ago, the Gunners are now in a position of strength heading into the rest of January.

They may not go on to qualify for a place in Europe and they may still struggle to break into the top half come the end of the season, but manager Mikel Arteta will just be happy to see his side win a few games.
