Arsenal v Watford Premier League Preview 0

Posted on September 28, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal host Watford at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, as the Gunners look to extend their winning run in all competitions to seven games.

Arsenal heads into this game on the back of a 3-1 win over Brentford in the Carabao Cup in midweek. The victory extended the home sides winning run to six games in all competitions.

Four of those six games in Arsenal’s winning run have been in the Premier League. Last time out in the top-flight, the team from north London recorded a 2-0 home win over Everton.

On Wednesday night, England international striker Danny Welbeck netted a brace in Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Brentford in the Carabao Cup third round.

It was the usual story for the striker as he started a cup game. His Arsenal appearances are usually restricted to starts in the cup competitions and cameos in the Premier League.

Happy to wait for a Premier League start

In truth, Welbeck is unlikely to start many of Arsenal’s Premier League games. However, the striker has stated that he is happy to wait for his chance to start in the top-flight.

Arsenal need to keep their momentum going against Brentford 0

As we all know Arsenal host Brentford in the Carabao Cup third round this evening. The competition is definitely not the Gunners priority this season, as is now the custom of the much-maligned cup competition.

The League Cup will be low on most Premier League clubs priority list in truth. No doubt Gunners boss Unai Emery will heavily rotate his squad with a number of fringe players likely to feature against the Bees.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host Brentford at the Emirates Stadium in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The Gunners head into this cup tie in good spirits and on a five-game winning run after their 2-0 home win over Everton on Sunday. The team from north London have a mixed recent record in this competition, mainly due to the mass squad rotation on the part of former boss Arsene Wenger in cup competition.

Arsenal will be returning to the Emirates for the third straight game tomorrow night, as they take on Championship side Brentford in the League (or Carabao if you want to be awkward about it) Cup. The attendances likely aren’t going to be great, as was the case in the Europa League, and that’s one of the primary things that the Gunners need to look out for. This serves as a big day out for the second tier side and they’ll probably bring some impressive numbers, and as a result, there’s a good chance that they’re going to outsing the home side.

Manchester City a cut above the Gunners in the Carabao Cup final 0

Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday was not completely unexpected. The Citizens are runaway league leaders in the Premier League and a cut above most teams in England, if not Europe.

People can talk about a foul for the first goal or an offside for the second goal, but in truth, City were just too good for Arsenal and the Citizens were not even at full pelt. The sheer gap between the two teams was frightening for Arsenal and the fans.

Arsenal suffered a 3-0 defeat against Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday, as Pep Guardiola won his first silverware in England. Goals from Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva were enough to seal a comfortable victory for the Citizens.

Arsenal had the first goal threat of the game, as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found himself with a gaping goal, only for Kyle Walker to tackle the striker before Claudio Bravo saved the rebound from the striker who was just a few yards out.

Manchester City v Arsenal Carabao Cup final preview 0

On Sunday afternoon, Manchester City and Arsenal clash at Wembley in the final of the Carabao Cup.

Manchester City no longer have the quadruple to aim for this season after exiting the FA Cup. However, the Citizens can still complete the treble of Premier League, Champions League and League Cup.

Pep Guardiola’s side has dispatched West Brom, Leicester, Wolves and Bristol City in the previous rounds. Arsenal should represent slightly more of a challenge for the Citizens, as Guardiola looks to win his first trophy at the Manchester club. If they succeed in winning the trophy it will be their third triumph in the competition in the past five seasons.

Chelsea and Arsenal finishes all square 0

Chelsea and Arsenal played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

The home side had the first attempt on goal after just two minutes, as Alvaro Morata tried to poke an effort in at the near post. However, the Spanish striker could only find the side-netting.

The next attempt on goal did not come until the 20th minute when Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka dragged a long-range free-kick wide of goal. Two minutes later the visitors hit the Blues on the counter-attack, Jack Wilshere feeding the ball to Alexandre Lacazette, who fires wide of Chelsea’s near post.

Arsenal v West Ham EFL Cup Preview 0

Posted on December 18, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal have the chance to book their place in the last-four of the EFL Cup on Tuesday night when the Gunners welcome West Ham to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal’s recent form has been inconsistent in the Premier League. However, the Gunners head into this clash on the back of a 1-0 home win over Newcastle last time out.

The north London side have had a relatively easy route to the quarter-finals, with wins over lower league opposition Doncaster Rovers and Norwich City, although they need extra time to beat the latter in round 5.
