Arsenal v Napoli Europa League Preview 0

Posted on April 10, 2019 by David Nugent

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.

Rennes v Arsenal Europa League Preview 0

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.

Arsenal v Bournemouth Premier League Preview 0

Posted on February 26, 2019 by David Nugent

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to maintain their place in the Premier League’s top-four.

The Gunners are currently a point above fifth-place Manchester United, while three points above sixth-place Chelsea. A 2-0 win over Southampton at the Emirates Stadium last time out means Unai Emery’s side have won four of their last five top-flight matches.

The home side has been prolific in front of goal in the Premier League, scoring at least twice in four of their last five top-flight games.

BATE Borisov v Arsenal Europa League Preview 0

Posted on February 13, 2019 by David Nugent

On Thursday evening, Arsenal make a trip to Belarus to face BATE Borisov in the last 32 of the Europa League. The Gunners will be confident of emerging with a victory to take into the second leg of the tie.

BATE Borisov have not played competitive football since December having won the Belarus Premier League at the end of last season. Despite their achievements in domestic football, the home sides record in the Europa League is patchy, as they have won just three of their last nine matches in Europe’s secondary competition.

Huddersfield v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on February 08, 2019 by David Nugent

On Saturday afternoon, Huddersfield host Arsenal at the John Smiths Stadium, as the Gunners look to get their challenge for a top-four spot back on track.

Huddersfield are rock bottom of the Premier League table, 13 points away from safety and now destined for a return to the Championship. The Terriers are winless in 12 Premier League games, having suffered 11 defeats in the process.

The arrival of German boss Jan Siewert has done little to stop the rot, as last time out Town suffered a 5-0 defeat at Chelsea. One of the home side’s biggest problems of late has been their inability to find the net, as they have failed to score in five of their last six league games, including their last four matches.
