Would Ryan Fraser be a good signing for Arsenal? 0

Posted on April 05, 2019 by David Nugent

There has been plenty of talk in the media of late linking Arsenal with a summer move for Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser, who has not exactly distanced himself from a switch to north London.

In fact, the Scot is quoted by the Daily Star as saying “I’m not going to lie, it’s very nice. It means you are doing something right,”

“They are a huge club, a massive club. When you see your name thrown around you always think to yourself that you are a Bournemouth player and you try to do well.

Arsenal 2-0 Southampton

Professional and efficient. Arsenal secured a pretty comfortable win over Southampton, which is what you’d expect from a fixture like this. Mesut Ozil showcased his return to form, and the starting XI just seemed to click in all the right places. With the top four race being as tight as it is you can’t really afford too many major slip ups, so this result was a welcome relief. You could argue that they probably could’ve been a little bit more clinical, but at least the three points were put on the board.

Arsenal 5-1 Bournemouth

North London derby a big test of Arsenal’s recent form 0

Arsenal’s recent form in the Premier League has been promising. A 5-1 mauling of midtable Bournemouth on Wednesday night means the Gunners have now won five of their last six games in the Premier League.

The recent good run of form has been enough to push Unai Emery’s side into the Premier League’s top-four. However, next up is a trip to north London neighbours Tottenham on Saturday lunchtime in a potentially vital north London derby.

Tottenham tough opponents despite recent defeats

Arsenal will head into the clash at Wembley as the form team, as a 2-0 defeat at Chelsea on Wednesday night means that Mauricio Pochettino’s team have lost successive games in the Premier League.

The Premier League is a pretty fickle division, and we believe that every single fan of every single team in the league qualifies for that on some level. It’s nothing personal, but let’s face it, it’s just the truth. Every single team has their own set of fans who, for whatever reason, are never fully satisfied. With that being said, it felt like last night’s performance from Arsenal was about as close as they’re going to get to making their fanbase universally happy.

Cherries are there for the picking for Arsenal 0

Arsenal have a great opportunity this evening to consolidate their position in the top-four of the Premier League table, as the Gunners host travel sick Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium.

The Cherries are awful on their travels

Cherries boss Eddie Howe is a guy that talks sense when it comes to football. He is very honest and open about the game. These character traits are probably why he is such a well-liked boss. Some have even mentioned the promising head coach as a future Gunners boss.

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.

Win at Huddersfield was all that mattered for Arsenal 0

In all honesty, Arsenal’s 2-1 win at Huddersfield on Saturday was not all that convincing. If the Terriers would have had slightly more quality they really could have got something from the game. It was the story of Huddersfield’s season, as they toiled but lacked a cutting edge in attack to really trouble the Arsenal defence. On another day, Arsenal could have suffered another disappointing away day.

All that mattered was three points

In the end, all that mattered was that the Gunners ending a six-game winless run on their travels that dated back to November. Arsenal have put in some truly lacklustre displays on their travels of late, so to record a victory in Yorkshire has at least stopped the rot when it comes to poor away results.

Mesut Ozil omission at Bournemouth made sense 0

There has been a lot made of Unai Emery’s decision to bench Mesut Ozil for the Gunners 2-1 win at Bournemouth on Sunday. As is always the case with big selection decision, the rumours of a rift between the player and boss emerge.

Good management by Emery

However, the decision has a simple tactical one by Emery. The Spaniard knew that the Bournemouth would be quite physical in nature, so decided to pick a team to suit the game.

Arsenal came through the Bournemouth game with all three points last night, and it can’t be understated just how big of a win that is. The Cherries may have been on a downward slope for the last few weeks but they’re still dangerous, and they were still just one place back from the Gunners heading into the game. They needed to treat it like an encounter against Manchester City or Liverpool – and while they got lucky at points, they certainly didn’t come to the south coast to play around.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal will put their 16-game competitive unbeaten run to the test when the Gunners visit Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium.

Bournemouth are enjoying a promising campaign so far. In fact, the Cherries are sixth place in the table, just four points the fifth-place Gunners.

The home side’s good start to the season has been tempered slightly by the fact they have suffered back-to-back league defeats against Manchester United and Newcastle. However, there is still a positive atmosphere surrounding the south coast club, as they had recorded three victories in their four league games prior to the consecutive league losses.
