The Premier League has confirmed its decision to have the matches which were supposed to take place this weekend postponed, out of respect for Queen Elizabeth II who passed away on Thursday.
The official mourning guidelines for the sporting events scheduled for the weekend did not make postponement compulsory, but rather left the decision in the hands of each organizer as they see fit. In the case of matches being played, they suggested minutes of silence, playing the national anthem and the players wearing black armbands, but the Premier League obviously feels it would be disrespectful to proceed with the matches as planned. .......Read more here.....

According to Martyn Ziegler of The Times, the Premier League is set to make a U-turn on their stance on the number of substitutions issue and agree to return to five per match from next season.
The rule was first established on a temporary basis when the teams started playing matches in empty stadiums following the pandemic-induced three-month break in the second half of 2019/20. Seeing the advantages the initially forced change of the rule, all major European leagues continued in that way in 2020/21 and they still allow five substitutions in a match; all except the English top flight. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal drew 2-2 against Manchester United on Wednesday evening at Old Trafford in the 15th round of this season’s Premier League roller coaster, adding game number 20 to their truly impressive unbeaten run. The Gunners led twice, but the home team managed to pull level both times. Shkodran Mustafi gave Arsenal the lead in the 26th minute only to have to cancelled out by Anthony Martial just four minutes later, and the hope for victory briefly reignited by Alexandre Lacazette in the 68th minute was dashed by Jesse Lingard after 60 seconds. .......Read more here.....

It was a marvelous day for Arsenal on Sunday.
There are many fierce rivalries in football. Some develop over time between two most successful clubs in a league, but mostly they bear a strong local flavor, wherever this sport takes roots.
The North-London Derby is certainly in that category, and while Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur aren’t exactly two biggest clubs in England (they are certainly big), the bragging rights in the part of the capital north of the river are a huge deal. .......Read more here.....

Transfer news might be the last thing Arsenal fans want to hear at the moment but we can’t run away from them, especially when they involve some rather tasty players such as Benfica starlet Andrija Zivkovic.
The 21-year-old Serbian winger continues to put in impressive displays for Portuguese champions this season as he hopes to land a regular first-team spot at Benfica.
Former Partizan star managed 12 Primeira Liga appearances thus far and saw the total of 720 minutes of action, including 90 minutes in a comprehensive 5-0 over Maritimo this weekend. .......Read more here.....

Back-to-back defeats at the hands of Manchester City – first in the Carabao Cup final last weekend and in the Premier League on Thursday night – have put the Arsenal boss under increasing pressure.
The fans are once again turning against the Premier League’s longest serving manager who could be set for an immediate end to his 22-year tenure at the north London club. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is the longest serving manager in the Premier League.
With a reign nearly two decades long it appears that the Frenchman is finally closing in on the end of his time with the Gunners.
Having failed to guide his team into the Champions League places last season Arsene Wenger survived the pressure only to sign a new two-year contract with the London-based club but he is once again feeling the heat.
Arsenal’s poor display in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City appears to have been the biggest blow this season and with another showdown against the Citizens in place for tonight, all eyes are back on Wenger again. .......Read more here.....
