Arteta looks ahead to Manchester City clash – part 2 0

Posted on March 10, 2020 by Harry Kettle

On whether we can beat City:
We’re going to go there trying to beat them, for sure. That’s going to be the game plan. We’ll put all the things we can on the pitch to make it difficult for them to create the scenarios during the game, and let’s see if we turn up on the day at our best and we can perform and win the game.

On qualifying for the Champions League:
I don’t know. It’s still a long way to go, we want to go game by game. Three weeks ago it was impossible, now it looks a little bit more possible, but still [it depends on] the results and our performances.

While many fans are excited that Arsenal could actually have a chance against Manchester City after seeing their performance against Manchester United this past weekend, it’s worth being a little bit cautious. This is still one of the best teams in world football, as proven by the fact that they’re the favourites to lift the European Cup this season.

Prior to the Gunners going head to head with City, manager Mikel Arteta spoke about the match and what he’s expecting to see.

Arsenal to bring back Malen? 0

Posted on March 09, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are once again being linked with a swoop to bring Donyell Malen from PSV Eindhoven back to the club.

Malen joined Arsenal’s U-18 outfit from Ajax’s U-17s back in 2015. He quickly progressed through the ranks, but in 2017 he was allowed to go back to Holland for only £500,000. He then joined PSV’s U-21 side and earned promotion to the first team a year later. His development continued apace, and he is now among the more exciting attacking prospects of European football. This season, he has made a total of 25 appearances, during which he scored 17 goals and laid on nine assists.

Arteta reflects on big win over West Ham – part 2 0

On our unbeaten league run:
It’s only turning a corner in terms of results. A little bit in terms of the things I want to see from my team, but they were telling me now that ‘I’ve turned the ship around’, that ship still has to turn a few times more to see what we want to see. It’s part of the process, it doesn’t happen overnight, we are positive that we can keep going on this from the eight or nine weeks that we’ve been here. It will be down to the performances that we put in and it will be related to the results.

It was another nervous afternoon in North London as Arsenal narrowly edged their way past West Ham United and picked up another three points as their push for a place in the top four, or perhaps five, continues. After the game Mikel Arteta gave his thoughts on the big result.

Plans afoot for summer overhaul? 0

Posted on March 08, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal’s results have started gradually improving since Mikel Arteta took over from Unai Emery in December. Much more seems to be in place than before. There are clear ideas being implemented on the pitch, with every player working as hard as he can to fulfill the task given to him. However, it is the job of every manager to take constant looks at the squad at his disposal and ponder possible improvements; what needs to be strengthened, who are the players potentially not up to the standards required, would there be enough depth without them, and who could possibly take their places.

Arsenal vs West Ham – Preview 0

Posted on March 07, 2020 by Harry Kettle

It’s time to get back into the swing of Premier League football as Arsenal prepare to try and work their way back into the top four mix. While it’s going to take a while for them to be viewed as serious contenders once again, the hope is that they can build up some momentum against sides that, realistically, they should be beating.

West Ham United almost certainly fall into that category and while it’s going to be a bit of a slog, they’ll be viewed as the favourites to come away with the three points from the Emirates later today.

Arsenal interested in Feyenoord youngster 0

Posted on March 06, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are among the clubs interested in signing Feyenoord’s Orkun Kokcu this summer, according to Sky Sports.

Kokcu is a 19-year-old attacking midfielder, also capable of performing well in deeper roles, on both sides if necessary, though he prefers playing through the middle. He joined Feyenoord’s youth setup back in 2014, and was promoted to the first team four years later. This season he has racked up a total of 34 appearances so far (started almost all), scoring three times and laying on six assists. He is also a Turkey U-21 international, and is being considered by Everton as well. Kokcu has apparently been putting in impressive performances as his team fight to stay close to Ajax and AZ Alkmaar at the top of the table.
