Arsenal vs Crystal Palace – Preview 0

Posted on October 15, 2021 by Harry Kettle

The international break has come to an end once again and Arsenal are one of many clubs gearing up for the return of the Premier League. Their poor start to the season hasn’t exactly been eradicated but after going on a strong run of form in September, the Gunners are in a much better position with regards to how they’re going to approach the push for the top six.

In their next challenge on Monday Night Football, they’ll go head to head with a familiar face as Patrick Vieira returns to the club as Crystal Palace manager.

Arsenal and Crystal Palace in Nketiah talks 0

Arsenal are currently negotiating with Crystal Palace over a proposed sale of Eddie Nketiah, as revealed by David Ornstein in his Monday column for The Athletic.

When Nketiah arrived to the Arsenal Academy from Chelsea in 2015, the hopes that Gunners would soon have a high-quality striker in their ranks for the foreseeable future were high. However, first-team opportunities have been rather limited for the 22-year-old. His contract expires at the end of the season and the club are now facing the age-old dilemma – sell now or risk a departure without compensation next summer?

Arsenal have offered a new contract to Eddie Nketiah, according to multiple sources. It came as a bit of surprise for many who expected, or still expect, the 22-year-old striker to leave the Emirates this summer.

James McNicholas explains for The Athletic the club’s reasoning as rather straightforward. Having seen what a loan spell has done for Joe Willock, who exploded onto the scene while on loan with Newcastle in the second half of 2020-21 and is being heavily pursued by the Magpies now, they believe a similar scenario could be possible for Nketiah as well. Their aim is, therefore, to tie him down with a new deal and ship him out on loan for 2021-22, in the hope of a prominent role elsewhere increasing his market value for next summer, together with a contract binding him to Arsenal for four or five years.

Arsenal, somehow, have now won four Premier League games on the bounce after they were able to end Roy Hodgson’s run at Selhurst Park with a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace last night. They certainly made hard work of it and waited until injury time before they struck the key goals they needed, but a win is a win and it keeps the Gunners well and truly in the hunt for European football next season.

After the game, Mikel Arteta spoke with the media as the attention turns to the final game of the campaign.

On a night that will serve as Roy Hodgson’s official send-off from Selhurst Park as Crystal Palace boss, Arsenal know they have a job to do. They need to do everything in their power to ensure this isn’t a favourable day at the office for Roy, because sometimes in this game, you need to be selfish.

Arsenal need to win both of their remaining fixtures to even stand a chance of qualifying for Europe next season, and when speaking to the media before kick-off, Mikel Arteta was clearly aware of that.

Arsenal’s Premier League run-in 0

The Premier League season is slowly but surely coming to an end and for Arsenal fans, that has to be seen as a blessing. This has been a really poor campaign for the Gunners and while some optimistic supporters will still feel as if the top six is within touching distance, we tend to believe that isn’t the case.

Still, there’s no harm if the club giving it everything they’ve got across their last four league fixtures, which is why we’re here today to take a look at those games and what we can expect to see from Arsenal.

Arteta reacts to disappointing Crystal Palace draw 0

Even after a nice string of victories, one slip-up is all it takes for Arsenal fans to get wound up again. Last night, the Gunners were unable to capitalise on a golden opportunity to make a statement at the Emirates as they fell to a disappointing 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace. In many ways, you could make the argument that they even deserved to lose given how disappointing their play was at times.

After the game, manager Mikel Arteta spoke candidly about why his side wasn’t able to come away with the win.

Arsenal are on the best run of form we’ve seen from them since winning the FA Cup last year, and Mikel Arteta will be well aware of how badly they need to take advantage of that. Whether or not it happens is a different matter altogether but over the course of the next few days, it certainly feels like the tide could officially turn if the Gunners can make a real statement against Crystal Palace.

Today, we’re going to give our thoughts on what we believe they can accomplish in what is bound to be a vital game for the club.

Arsenal have been on a solid run of form as of late but if they’re serious about challenging for a place in the top four, they need to keep winning – because even the smallest slip-up in this incredibly unpredictable Premier League campaign could cost them in a big way. Their next test will come in the form of another London derby, this time at the Emirates against Crystal Palace.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta recently spoke with the media and previewed his side’s upcoming encounter against the Eagles.

Injury updates: Martinelli, Magalhaes, Partey 1

Posted on January 12, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have provided updates on the fitness of three players ahead of the Premier League match against Crystal Palace scheduled to take place on Thursday evening at the Emirates.

Gabriel Martinelli turned his right ankle during the warm-up process ahead of the FA Cup win over Newcastle United on Saturday and was consequently replaced in the line-up, having initially been named to start. The 19-year-old forward missed the start of the season through a serious knee injury, and once he recovered, he still understandably needed time to raise his fitness level to the standards required.
