Lacazette needs to return to the starting line-up 0

Posted on December 06, 2018 by David Nugent

On Wednesday night, Arsenal’s French international forward Alexandre Lacazette was once again the key to the Gunners picking up a result. The forward’s shot on goal took a deflection to give the north London team the lead in a 2-2 draw at Manchester United.

It may not have been a winning goal, but it was another big contribution from the former Lyon star to Unai Emery’s side picking up a result.

Coming off the bench again

I have to admit, I expected Lacazette to start last night’s match against United. However, Gunners boss Emery decided to start with a more cautious approach, which is understandable, as even in poor form the Red Devils are a threat at Old Trafford.

Arsenal show resilience 0

Last night’s game at Old Trafford was wild to say the least, in many different ways. Arsenal were able to go toe to toe with Manchester United and prove that, in many ways, they were the superior team. Courtesy of their win against Tottenham Hotspur it felt like there wasn’t quite as much pressure on their shoulders, whereas United badly needed a result. It was back and forth, it was tense, and most importantly it was exciting.

20 unbeaten 0

Well, they did it.

After battling and clawing their way through some seriously tough games over the course of the last few months, Arsenal have reached a point that few could’ve imagined they’d get to – 20 games unbeaten in all competitions. It’s a feat that deserves to be spoken about if only for a few minutes, because god only knows when it’s going to happen again. We know that we’ve done this for quite a few of their landmarks that have been achieved along the way, but it just feels right to praise it.

Arsenal can end their Old Trafford hoodoo on Wednesday night 0

Posted on December 05, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s 19-game unbeaten record in all competitions faces a potential test on Wednesday night, as the Gunners visit Old Trafford to face Manchester United. Old Trafford has become something a wasteland for Arsenal teams in recent years. In fact, the Gunners have won just once in 15 games at United in all competitions. The one win was back in 2015 in the FA Cup in a 2-1 win.

Arsenal’s last Premier League victory at Old Trafford was 12 years ago. It is fair to say it is not the Gunners favourite ground to visit.

Winter dilemma 0

Posted on December 05, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The busy winter period is almost upon us, and when we say busy, we mean it. Arsenal are set to play eight games in the month of December in all competitions, followed by two more by the 5th of January – so, logistically speaking, they’re going to be playing 10 games in the span of a month. While we love watching the beautiful game as much as the next guy, even we think that is excessive, and not just for the fans, but for the players.

Welbeck to go on a free? 0

Posted on December 05, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Danny Welbeck is an intriguing figure and we mean that in the nicest way possible. He was always being groomed for the top of the mountain in English football, and contrary to popular belief, we think he’s lived up to the hype. While there have certainly been a few stumbles along the way, the same can be said of many top stars who are now enjoying great success on a European and world stage. We aren’t about to suggest that he’s the second coming of Henry or anything like that, but you get our point.

Emery stubbornness? 0

Posted on December 04, 2018 by Harry Kettle

We spend a lot of time praising the work of Unai Emery, and it’s not exactly difficult to do so when you take a look at Arsenal’s 19 game unbeaten run. The guy has turned this team upside down, and we’re all in for the journey. Alas, in the wake of the Gunners’ win over Tottenham at the weekend, reports seemed to indicate that Emery would be holding firm on Aaron Ramsey’s contract situation even after a handful of good performances as of late.

Arsenal go after Rabiot 1

Posted on December 04, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It seems like Adrien Rabiot is the name on everyone’s lips across European football, and for good reason. The 23 year old midfielder has been heavily linked with a move away from Paris Saint-Germain for what feels like forever, and now, a parade of different cubs are believed to be interested in signing him. While Barcelona are said to be in the driving seat it certainly seems like it could be anyone’s ball game, which could open the door for Unai Emery to swoop in and make an offer.

Derby come back shows Arsenal’s improvement this season 0

Posted on December 03, 2018 by David Nugent

As we all know, Arsenal recorded a magnificent 4-2 win over arch-rivals Tottenham in the north London derby on Sunday afternoon. The derby had absolutely everything, as the two teams went at it in a highly entertaining encounter.

The Gunners resilience to come back from 2-1 down to record what could be a pivotal victory in the race for the Champions League places.

Good management by Emery

Much of the credit for the comeback must go to Gunners boss Unai Emery. The Spanish boss could see that the starting line-up he picked was not working out in the latter stages of the first half and remedied the situation at half time.

Turning a corner – part 2 0

Posted on December 03, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Heading into half time it certainly felt like there was a change in momentum, but the important thing for Arsenal was that they didn’t concede another. They were able to re-group, analyse the situation and consider what they needed to do in order to improve. Spurs are a great side but it was somewhat obvious to see that they were fortunate to go into half time with the lead, but thankfully, we all knew that they weren’t going to try and sit back on it – because let’s face it, this is the North London Derby we’re talking about here.
