Arsenal v Crystal Palace Premier League Preview 0

Posted on April 20, 2019 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to attempt to consolidate their position in the Premier League’s top four this season.

Arsenal heads into the game on the back of a 1-0 win at Napoli in the Europa League quarter-final second leg that saw the north London side make it through to the last four of the competition.

The win means that Unai Emery’s team has now won six of their last seven matches in all competitions. The fact that the Gunners have conceded just once in seven games has also played a big part in the recent improvement in results.

On Thursday night, Arsenal visits Napoli’s San Paolo in the Europa League quarter-final second leg. The Gunners hold a 2-0 lead from the first leg at the Emirates Stadium.

Napoli’s recent form has been unconvincing at home and abroad. Carlo Ancelotti’s team ended a three-game winless run in all competitions by recording a 3-1 win at Chievo.

The home sides recent record in the Europa League is not great, as they have suffered defeats against Salzburg and of course Arsenal in the first leg. However, prior to the defeats, the Italian side had recorded four straight European victories.

Watford v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on April 14, 2019 by David Nugent

On Monday night, Arsenal travels to Vicarage Road to face Watford, in a Premier League game that could prove crucial to the Gunners chances of a top-four finish this season.

Watford are currently tenth place in the Premier League table. However, they have two games in hand on some of their rivals for seventh spot. A victory would move the Hornets up to seventh place.

The home side’s recent Premier League form has been inconsistent. In fact, Javi Garcia’s team has won two and lost three of their last five league outings. However, those three defeats were at Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United.

On Thursday night, Arsenal host Napoli at the Emirates Stadium in the Europa League quarter-final first leg.

Arsenal head into this game on the back of a disappointing 1-0 win at Everton in the Premier League. The defeat ended a three-game winning run for the Gunners in all competitions, with all three victories coming at the Emirates Stadium.

A return to the home soil on Thursday will be a welcome one for Gunners, who have a strong home record of late. Unai Emery’s team has won ten of their last 11 home games in all competitions, including their last seven matches at the Emirates.

Everton v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on April 06, 2019 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal travels to Merseyside to face Everton at Goodison Park, in what could be a crucial match in the Gunners pursuit of a top-four spot this season.

Everton looked to have found a touch of form heading into this clash. The Toffees have recorded back-to-back 2-0 wins over Chelsea and West Ham, producing a particularly impressive display at the London Stadium.

A crucial factor in the Merseysider’s recent return to form has been a big defensive improvement, as Marco Silva’s team has now kept clean sheets in four of their last five league outings. At the other end of the pitch, they have also scored at least twice in four of their last five league matches.

Arsenal v Newcastle Premier League Preview 0

Posted on March 31, 2019 by David Nugent

On Monday night, Arsenal host Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium, in a game that could prove vital in the race for the Champions League places.

Arsenal are currently fifth place in the Premier League table, after Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Watford on Saturday. However, the Gunners would move above the Red Devils with a draw or a win in this clash, and depending on Tottenham’s match at Liverpool later today, could even move up to third in the table by avoiding defeat.

Arsenal v Rennes Europa League Preview 0

Posted on March 13, 2019 by David Nugent

On Thursday night, Arsenal host Rennes at the Emirates Stadium in the Europa League last 16 second leg. The Gunners head into this game 3-1 down from the first leg when they saw Greek defender Sokratis dismissed.

Arsenal’s recent form has been inconsistent of late, including in the Europa League as the Gunners have lost two of their last three European matches. The team from north London have been surprisingly solid of late in this competition, keeping clean sheets in six of their last eight games.

Arsenal v Manchester United Premier League Preview 0

Posted on March 09, 2019 by David Nugent

Arsenal have the chance to move back into the Premier League’s top-four when the Gunners host fourth-place Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The recent sense of optimism around the club took a slight hit on Thursday night, as Unai Emery’s side suffered a 3-1 defeat at Rennes in the last 16 of the Europa League. The Gunners have a big job on their hands turning the tie around.

On Thursday evening, Arsenal travel to France to face Rennes in the Europa League last-16 first leg, hopeful of returning to the capital with a positive result to take into the second leg in a weeks’ time.

Rennes are currently midtable in Ligue One after an inconsistent run of form of late. However, the visitors have been a tough nut to crack in recent months, as the home side has suffered just one defeat in eight games in all competitions.

Tottenham v Arsenal Premier League preview 0

Posted on March 01, 2019 by David Nugent

On Saturday lunchtime, Arsenal travel to Wembley to face north London rivals Tottenham, in a potentially massive derby clash.

Tottenham are third place in the table, nine points behind league leaders Liverpool after successive defeats against Burnley and Chelsea. The defeats ended a four-match winning run in the Premier League for Mauricio Pochettino’s team. Spurs poor recent run of form means that fourth place Arsenal have close to the gap on their neighbours to four points.

The home sides recent top-flight outings have been high scoring affairs, as eight of their last 11 league outings have produced over 2.5 goals.
