Alex Iwobi set to sign new Arsenal deal 0

Posted on July 27, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Independent, Nigerian international winger Alex Iwobi is set to sign a new four-year deal with Arsenal. Gunners boss Unai Emery has confirmed that he has been told that Iwobi will sign a new deal with the north London club.

The 22-year-old has two years left on his Gunners contract to run, so the north London club look set to avoid another contract stand-off.

The club from north London has got themselves in a mess on numerous occasions when it has come to players running down their contracts. Even as we speak Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey has yet to agree on a new deal, despite the fact he is in the last year of his contract.

The neverending cycle of players coming in and out of Arsenal Football Club continues to bemuse many, but at the same time, it’s actively exciting as well. Case and point: Unai Emery seems to be forming a team that’ll work to his style, and it’ll be interesting to see whether or now that can translate to the English style of play. With that, he’s brought in a series of new players whilst also shipping quite a few out, and it seems as if he’s willing to give one surprise star another shot at proving himself with the club.

On Tuesday night, the complicated Group D of the World Cup reaches matchday three, as Nigeria and Argentina go head-to-head Saint Petersburg. A draw could be enough to see the African side make the knockout stages, while nothing but a win will see the South American giants make the last 16.

Following an opening game 2-0 defeat against group leaders Croatia, Nigeria recorded a 2-0 win over Iceland in their last outing to put their chances of qualifying for the knockout stages back in their hands.

For anybody who has seen Arsenal play in the last season or two, or even longer than that, it has been impossible not to perceive where the main problems lie, as well as the place where only a tweak or two would do just fine. Going forward, there is very little you could pinpoint as wrong, especially in the Premier League towards the end of the season with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on great form since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund.

According to a report in the Evening Standard, Alex Iwobi is excited about working with the newly appointed manager Unai Emery.

The sudden departure of Arsene Wenger after 22 years in charge came as a bit of a shock for the young Nigerian. The Frenchman represented a huge figure in his development. Iwobi has been with Arsenal since he was six, and to play for the Gunners’ first team now is a life-dream come true.

Now, with Wenger gone and Emery about to take charge, the attacker is keen to see what working with the Spaniard will be like.

Arsenal suffer fifth straight away league defeat at Newcastle 0

Posted on April 15, 2018 by David Nugent

On Sunday, Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle, to continue their terrible run of form away from home in the Premier League.

Arsenal had the first effort of the game as striker Alexandre Lacazette miss-hit a shot wide of goal. The home side responded on ten minutes, as Petr Cech produced a comfortable save from a Kenedy strike.

The Gunners took the lead on 14 minutes. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ran at Jamaal Lascelles before putting the ball past the defender. The Gabon international then found Lacazette at the far post, who slides in to put the ball past Dubravka in the home goal.

A few observations from Arsenal’s win over Southampton 0

Arsenal beat Southampton 3-2 at the Emirates in their 32nd game of the Premier League season, courtesy of one goal by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a brace from Danny Welbeck to overrule goals from Shane Long and Charlie Austin for the Saints.

Welbeck and Iwobi

This duo can be fairly considered as a pair of squad players, the manager’s tools for when his preferred options are unavailable or need rest. With the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette fully fit and firing, they are hardly likely to get a look-in.

On Sunday afternoon, Danny Welbeck bagged a brace for Arsenal against Southampton in a thrilling game, which saw both teams reduced to ten men.

Southampton offered the first threat on goal on seven minutes. Dusan Tadic got in behind the Gunners defence and pulled the ball back to James Ward-Prowse, who hit a rather tame effort towards goal that Hector Bellerin cleared near the goal line.

The Saints took the lead on 17 minutes. Wing-back Cedric dug out a cross and striker Shane Long poked home at the near post. The home side struggled to create anything until the equaliser arrived on 28 minutes.

Alex Iwobi has insisted that he is ‘grateful’ to play alongside the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil with Arsenal this season as the young star looks to help the Premier League side return to the Champions League this season.

Arsenal were able to claim a very comfortable win in the Europa League on Thursday evening. Nacho Monreal and Mesut Ozil netted for the Gunners while Ostersunds’ Sotirios Papagiannopoulos scored an own goal to complete the 3-0 scoreline.

Alex Iwobi has insisted that Arsenal still have two potential routes back into the Champions League as the Premier League club battle to take back a place in Europe’s top competition.

It was a superb outing for Arsenal on Thursday night as they put one foot into the next round of the Europa League. The London side were far too good for Ostersunds as the Sweedish side barely put up a fight.

Nacho Monreal and Mesut Ozil scored for the English side while Sotirios Papagiannopoulos scored an own goal as Arsenal ensured they returned to the Emirates with a healthy three-goal lead.
