Arsenal have beaten Burnley by 3-1 in the 18th round of the 2018/19 Premier League season, courtesy of goals from Pierre-Emerick Auubameyang (14′, 48′), and Alex Iwobi (90′). The solitary strike for the visitors was the work of Ashley Barnes (63′). The Gunners are still in fifth place, but now they’ve equaled Chelsea’s point tally as the Blues suffered defeat at home to Leicester City.
But the result aside for a moment, there were some interesting things to take from this game. Let’s take a look. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal host Burnley in Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off, as the Gunners attempt to recover from two straight defeats.
Last time out Arsenal suffered a 2-0 home defeat against Tottenham in the quarter-final of the Carabao Cup. The defeat followed a 3-2 league defeat against Southampton last weekend.
The run has rather dented the Gunners positive momentum under Spanish boss Unai Emery. However, the team from north London will be determined to end the losing run as soon as possible. .......Read more here.....

As the dust settles on Wednesday night’s 2-0 defeat against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup quarter-final, there is little time to waste in thinking about the Arsenal’s next encounter. Unai Emery’s side has the chance to bounce in Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off against Burnley at the Emirates Stadium. On paper, it looks like an ideal game for the Gunners, but in truth, it may not be so easy.
Burnley’s recent record could be deceptive
Burnley heads to north London on the back of four defeats in their last five Premier League matches. Sean Dyche’s team are in the relegation zone and enduring a nightmare campaign. .......Read more here.....

I am afraid to say my fears from my article prior to the Southampton-Arsenal game came to pass. I stated that I believed that the Saints could enjoy a new boss bounce, which happened.
I also wrote about the Gunners having to field a makeshift central defensive partnership. In truth, both of these issues were not hard to spot, but I thought that the Gunners newfound toughness might have got them through. Unfortunately, it did not and the team from north London suffered a 3-2 defeat at St Marys. .......Read more here.....

In a game that may be looked upon as a glorified friendly by some, Arsenal tore through Burnley on their way to securing a place in the top six for Arsene Wenger’s final season in charge. The Frenchman received a guard of honour prior to the game which, in many ways, can be seen as an odd occurrence given that the club are just a few days removed from being knocked out of the Europa League by Atletico Madrid. With that being said, this game provided fans with cause for hope as they head into the final stages of Wenger’s tenure. .......Read more here.....

Later today (Sunday), Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will enjoy his last home game in charge of the north London club, as Burnley visit the Emirates Stadium.
In recent weeks and months, Arsenal supporters have shown their anger and frustration at the club underperforming by boycotting the games. The Gunners have long since been out of the race for the Champions League spots, while the Europa League campaign ended at the semi-final stage with a whimper.
Wenger deserves a good reception for his first decade
I have been a constant critic of Wenger in my time at My Arsenal Blog. I have been cynical and given my honest opinion of how I see the veteran French bosses performance as the Arsenal boss. .......Read more here.....

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host Burnley at the Emirates Stadium, as the home side look to give Arsene Wenger a good send-off in his final home game in charge of the Gunners.
Arsenal are still recovering from exiting the Europa League at the semi-final stage on Thursday night against Atletico Madrid. The Gunners recent form has been poor, as the north London outfit has won just one of their last six games in competitions.
Wenger’s side now look set to finish sixth-place, with fifth-place Chelsea nine points clear of the Gunners with just three league games remaining. However, the seventh-place visitors are just three points behind the home side, although they have played an extra game. .......Read more here.....

It’s always nice to take a trip down memory lane, especially when it comes to football. As fans, we can often get so caught up in the trials and tribulations of supporting our team in the present day, that we forget to stop and smell the roses. Obviously, sometimes there are no roses to be found, which is why looking back on days gone by can be such a wonderful release. .......Read more here.....

Former-Arsenal man Paul Merson has labelled the Gunners as ’embarrassing’ after they dropped below Burnley in the Premier League following the side’s 0-0 draw with West Ham in their last game.
It was their second draw in as many games and it has seen Arsenal floundering in the league once again. Their 1-1 draw with Southampton saw the side lose ground on those above them, while their 0-0 draw with struggling West Ham saw pressure pile on Arsene Wenger and the players. .......Read more here.....

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to strengthen their position in the Premier League’s top-four.
The Gunners moved into the Champions League spots last time out by recording a 1-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor courtesy of a stoppage-time penalty from Alexis Sanchez.
Arsene Wenger’s side have been rather inconsistent of late. However, their recent Premier League form has been strong, as the Gunners have now won four of their last five games in the English top-flight. .......Read more here.....
