Brighton interested in Maitland-Niles 0

Brighton and Hove Albion are interested in signing Ainsley Maitland-Niles from Arsenal this summer, according to the Evening Standard.

As recently revealed by David Ornstein of The Athletic, the 22-year-old versatile wide man has decided his future development would be best served away from the Emirates and wants to leave the club, feeling that other academy graduates have overtaken him on the path of regular first-team members.

Having made a 14-minute cameo in the win against Premier League champions Liverpool and started the FA Cup semifinal against Manchester City last week, his appearance tally in all competitions in the Arsenal shirt stands at 98, mostly at right-back or right wing-back, with three goals and five assists. This season he has racked up 21 starts and 10 inclusions off the bench.

Real, Barcelona and Leicester monitoring Matteo Guendouzi? 0

It has been a season rather loaded with controversies for Matteo Guendouzi. He was called out for a bout of poor behaviour at Arsenal’s training camp in Dubai in the winter, with head coach Mikel Arteta reportedly not impressed, and he put on a show of anger at the end of the Gunners’ defeat away to Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

Five minutes before the break, the Seagulls forward Neal Maupay rather thuggishly bumped into Bernd Leno as the Arsenal goalkeeper caught the ball near the edge of the box. He was probably trying to make the German either drop the ball or step over the line, but the result of the contact was that Leno lost his footing and landed awkwardly, getting injured in the process and having to make way for Emiliano Martinez.

The season finale – what now? 0

After failing to beat Brighton and Hove Albion at the Emirates on Sunday, Arsenal’s chances of finishing inside the top four and qualifying for next season’s Champions League that way are gone.

There is still a mathematical possibility which says the Gunners need to beat Burnley at Turf Moor and Tottenham Hotspur need to lose at home to Everton. Neither of these conditions is impossible, but the results need to be such that they nullify an eight-goal advantage Spurs currently have in terms of goal-difference, and that, let’s face it, is extremely unlikely to happen.

Brighton 1-1 Arsenal: Impressions 0

Arsenal rounded up the first half of the Premier League season with a rather disappointing draw away to Brighton and Hove Albion in a game that saw the teams score a goal apiece.

Yes, it’s a disappointing result, given the difference in quality of the two teams and in the size and reputation of the two clubs. But the most disappointing thing about it is that the Gunners should actually be thankful that they were allowed to leave the Amex Stadium with a point.

Mkhitaryan out for six weeks 0

Henrikh Mkhitaryan will miss the next six weeks of action with a broken metatarsal in his right foot, Arsenal have confirmed.

The injury of the Armenian is probably the last thing the team needs at the moment. Having suffered a defeat which ended their 22-game unbeaten run at the hands of Southampton and gone out of the Carabao Cup to arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur, the Gunners won the following game – Burnley at the Emirates, and they will be looking to get another run of positive results going as soon as possible.
