Could Emery bench Aubameyang against Huddersfield? 0

Posted on December 08, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been in superb form of late for the Gunners. In fact, since his move from Dortmund in the January transfer window, he has impressed in front of goal.

The Gabon striker’s form has attracted the interest of many people, including Fantasy Football enthusiasts, such as myself. With a home game against Huddersfield this afternoon, the striker looks to be set to record a big haul.

Could Aubameyang be rested against Huddersfield?

We are heading into a busy period of the Premier League campaign when top-flight bosses look to rest and rotate their squads. French forward Alexandre Lacazette has started the last two games on the bench.

On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal will be confident of continuing their 20-game unbeaten run in all competitions, as the Gunners host struggling Huddersfield at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners continued their recent promising form by recording a 2-2 draw at Manchester United. United may be unconvincing form, but they still have a good record at Old Trafford, so it may be considered a decent result with time.

Arsenal have had a habit of drawing league games of late, though, as the team from north London have drawn four of their last six games in the Premier League.

Lacazette needs to return to the starting line-up 0

On Wednesday night, Arsenal’s French international forward Alexandre Lacazette was once again the key to the Gunners picking up a result. The forward’s shot on goal took a deflection to give the north London team the lead in a 2-2 draw at Manchester United.

It may not have been a winning goal, but it was another big contribution from the former Lyon star to Unai Emery’s side picking up a result.

Coming off the bench again

I have to admit, I expected Lacazette to start last night’s match against United. However, Gunners boss Emery decided to start with a more cautious approach, which is understandable, as even in poor form the Red Devils are a threat at Old Trafford.

Arsenal can end their Old Trafford hoodoo on Wednesday night 0

Arsenal’s 19-game unbeaten record in all competitions faces a potential test on Wednesday night, as the Gunners visit Old Trafford to face Manchester United. Old Trafford has become something a wasteland for Arsenal teams in recent years. In fact, the Gunners have won just once in 15 games at United in all competitions. The one win was back in 2015 in the FA Cup in a 2-1 win.

Arsenal’s last Premier League victory at Old Trafford was 12 years ago. It is fair to say it is not the Gunners favourite ground to visit.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal put their long unbeaten run to test as they visit Manchester United’s Old Trafford in the Premier League.

Manchester United have been highly inconsistent of late in the top-flight. In fact, the Red Devils have failed to win in their last three Premier League outings. Last time out the home side had to come back from two goals down to claim a 2-2 draw with Southampton.

United’s poor form has left them eight points off the pace in the fight for the top four spots in the Premier League. The men from Manchester have at least maintained a decent recent league record at Old Trafford, winning five of their last eight league outings at home.

Derby come back shows Arsenal’s improvement this season 0

As we all know, Arsenal recorded a magnificent 4-2 win over arch-rivals Tottenham in the north London derby on Sunday afternoon. The derby had absolutely everything, as the two teams went at it in a highly entertaining encounter.

The Gunners resilience to come back from 2-1 down to record what could be a pivotal victory in the race for the Champions League places.

Good management by Emery

Much of the credit for the comeback must go to Gunners boss Unai Emery. The Spanish boss could see that the starting line-up he picked was not working out in the latter stages of the first half and remedied the situation at half time.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host arch-rivals Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium in what could prove to be a crucial north London derby.

Arsenal extended their recent unbeaten run to 18 matches in a 3-0 win against Vorskla in the Europa League on Thursday night. Unai Emery’s side are also now unbeaten in their last 11 top-flight games, so head into this clash in confident mood.

The Gunners have a strong home record in the Premier League, as they have lost just one of their last 12 league games at the Emirates Stadium while recording nine wins.

Prolific attack gives Arsenal a chance of top-four 0

Arsenal made it 17 games unbeaten in all competitions on Sunday afternoon when they recorded a 2-1 win over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

Although there was a slice of luck involved in the win, the opening goal coming from a bizarre own goal by Jefferson Lerma, the Gunners once again found the net twice, something they have become accustomed to doing in the top-flight of late.

Had to be a high scoring game

Bournemouth v Arsenal was destined to be a high scoring game. The two teams involved love to provide excitement and play attacking football, so Sunday’s scoreline was unsurprising really.

Everyone who knows anything about football, and more specifically the Premier League, is well aware of the fact that Alexandre Lacazette is an elite level striker. After some question marks in the early stages of his career at the Emirates he’s been able to shut up his critics and then some, putting in great performance after great performance to help Arsenal reach the point they’re at today with their unbeaten run. We aren’t the only ones who have noticed, either, with everyone from the club’s website to even the most negative of fans stating that they believe he could be Arsenal’s primary forward for many years to come.

Aubameyang one of the most effective forwards in the Premier League 0

Posted on November 05, 2018 by David Nugent

When Arsenal signed Gabon international striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Dortmund in January, the Gunners knew they had signed one of the most prolific forwards in the European game.

Aubameyang has not disappointed when it has come to goals for the north London club. In 28 appearances for the Gunners, the forward has scored 19 goals and produced five assists. That record is impressive by anybody’s standards.

One of the most effective in the league

When it comes to goals per minute in the Premier League this season, only Chelsea’s Eden Hazard can better the Gabon striker. Aubameyang has a ratio of a goal every 110 minutes.
