Slam ‘Dunk’ off the table? 0

Posted on June 26, 2018 by Harry Kettle

First off: we thoroughly apologise for the title, but if we hadn’t of gone for it, then we probably would’ve hated ourselves forever.

Some people know and others don’t, but Brighton & Hove Albion defender Lewis Dunk has actually been linked to Arsenal a handful of times now. The 26-year-old, who is a hometown hero of sorts, has been at the club since 2010 with many long-since believing that he deserved a move to one of the Premier League’s elite. Alas, it seems as if for now, he’ll have to wait and see what happens throughout the remainder of his tenure with the Seagulls.

Arsenal winning the Europa League would be highly surprising 1

As Arsenal went down to their fourth league defeat in five games at Brighton on Sunday all I could think about was that the Europa League is the Gunners last hope of salvaging anything from the season.

The Gunners face AC Milan on Thursday night in the last 16 first leg at the San Siro. It is hard to envisage the visitors gaining a positive result in Milan.

Poor results have bred poor confidence

No doubt confidence is low at Arsenal at the minute. Five defeats in seven games in all competitions tend to have that sort of effect on a team. Teams with low confidence never seem to be able to get anything right.

Arsenal suffered another bad day at the office on Sunday afternoon, as the Gunners went down 2-1 at Brighton, with a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal the Gunners only consolation from their trip to the south coast.

Arsenal offered the first attacking threat on three minutes, as Mesut Ozil curled an effort over the bar from the edge of the Brighton area. Two minutes later, the visitors threatened again. Lewis Dunk hooked Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s cross just wide of his own goal.

However, the home side took the lead on seven minutes. Shane Duffy beat Petr Cech in the air from a corner kick and his centre-back partner Dunk poked home from inside the area.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal makes the trip to the south coast to face Brighton at the Amex Stadium in the Premier League.

Brighton are currently in decent form, on an unbeaten run of four games in the Premier League, having recorded two wins and two draws. Last time out the Seagulls recorded a potentially vital 4-1 home victory over Swansea City.

The win means that Chris Hughton’s side are currently four points clear of the relegation zone. A win in this game would give the Seagulls hopes of survival a massive boost.

Arsenal still odds of 11/8 for top-four finish despite good run of form 0

A month can make a hell of a lot of difference in a football’s team’s fortunes. Arsenal are one of those teams that tend to go on streaky runs of form. The majority of recent reasons those runs of form have been enough to give the Gunners top-four finishes.

However, a late surge last season towards the top four spots was not quite enough to secure a Champions League spot for this season. Arsenal head into the international break on a positive note after Sunday’s comfortable 2-0 win over Brighton at the Emirates Stadium.

Far more positive mood around the club

Arsenal record comfortable win over Brighton 0

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal recorded a comfortable 2-0 win over Brighton at the Emirates Stadium, with goals from Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi enough to give the Gunners three points.

Arsenal hit the front straight away and came close to taking the lead in the first two minutes. French striker Alexandre Lacazette smashed an effort from long-range against Mat Ryan’s post.

The visitors offered their first real threat on five minutes. Pascal Gross fired in a free kick, which saw Izzy Brown glance towards goal, but wide of Petr Cech’s left post. Arsenal started to dominate possession and Alexis Sanchez saw a low effort saved comfortably by Ryan.

Arsenal will be looking to continue their recent good form when they host Brighton at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners have hit form of late after an unconvincing start to the season. Arsene Wenger’s team have now recorded five wins and a draw in all competitions. Last time out the team from north London defeated Belarusian side BATE Borisov 4-2 in the Europa League.

The home side are now three games unbeaten in the top-flight, having recorded two wins and a draw, keeping clean sheets in all three games.

Back Gunners at 18/1 to Beat Brighton 0

Three wins on the bounce are enough of a guarantee that our boys will be confident enough heading into the Brighton clash this weekend.

Arsenal play host to the Premier League newcomers on Sunday afternoon hoping to extend their winning run and move up the ladder from the seventh place they currently occupy.

Wenger’s men haven’t had the best of starts to their new campaign but improvement is visible and evident despite some remaining inconsistencies.

A win over Brighton could possibly push our boys into the top four if other results go our way and it’s not very difficult to see the importance behind grabbing all three points on Sunday.

Chuba Akpom relishing Brigthon opportunity 0

Talented Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom has joined Sky Bet Championship leaders Brighton on loan until the end of the season, it has been confirmed.

The 21-year-old Gunners talent has seen his first-team opportunities at Arsenal significantly limited as the England Under-21 international has so far made only one start and nine substitute appearances for Arsene Wenger’s team.

The French manager holds the striker in high regard however and has sanctioned another loan spell to aid Akpom’s development.

Can Serge Gnabry fulfil his potential at Arsenal? 2

Posted on January 31, 2016 by David Nugent

In the summer Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger decided to loan out highly-rated German midfielder Serge Gnabry. A temporary move to Premier League West Brom seemed like an ideal move for the youngster.

Lack of action

The Baggies are a good stable top-flight team, where he should have been able to gain first team experience in the Premier League. However, he has struggled for game time with the Baggies and boss Tony Pulis claimed earlier this season that he felt Gnabry was not ready for the Premier League.
