Arsenal should not panic over Palace defeat 0

Posted on April 22, 2019 by David Nugent

On Sunday, Arsenal suffered a shock 3-2 defeat against Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners losing is not a major surprise, as they have shown they are prone to slip-ups at unexpected times.

However, the majority of those slip-ups are away from the Emirates. The team from north London are usually strong on home soil. In fact, Unai Emery’s team had won their previous eight home games in all competitions.

A poor defensive display

It must be said that Palace produced a good display and deserve credit for their victory. It’s tough to win at the Emirates and the Eagles produced an impressive display against Emery’s team.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to attempt to consolidate their position in the Premier League’s top four this season.

Arsenal heads into the game on the back of a 1-0 win at Napoli in the Europa League quarter-final second leg that saw the north London side make it through to the last four of the competition.

The win means that Unai Emery’s team has now won six of their last seven matches in all competitions. The fact that the Gunners have conceded just once in seven games has also played a big part in the recent improvement in results.

Aaron Ramsey was substituted during Arsenal’s win over Napoli on Thursday due to injury, and given the inevitability of his move to Juventus this summer, fears arose among the fans that the Welshman had made his last appearance in an Arsenal shirt.

However, speaking to Sky Sports in an exclusive interview, manager Unai Emery has allayed those fears to an extent, by revealing that the club expect Ramsey back in no more than two or three weeks. That means that, if Arsenal manage to get past Valencia in the Europa League semifinal, he should be back in time to play in the final of the competition which is being played on May 29, at the Olympic Stadium in Baku.

Having three games between Monday and Sunday is always going to prove tricky – but when you’re a high level Premier League side playing against some of the very best, it becomes even trickier. That’s the situation Arsenal have had to deal with this week, but thankfully, two of the games have gone pretty smoothly thus far. The Gunners were able to narrowly edge their way past Watford on Monday Night Football, hoisting themselves back into contention in the race for a top four spot.

The rest of the Premier League have had their say on proceedings throughout the course of the weekend, and tonight, it’s time for Arsenal to step up to the plate. They’ll be playing on Monday Night Football this evening, as they attempt to springboard their way back into the top four – and back into contention for a Champions League spot. However, this isn’t the only game that they’ll be playing this week, as Gunners fans around the world gear up for what should be an incredibly busy schedule.

There’s still a long road ahead for Arsenal before the end of the season is upon us, with seven Premier League games standing between the Gunners and a place in the UEFA Champions League next season. They know that their fate is in their own hands and there’s no real way of getting around that, but truth be told, that isn’t enough to calm the anxiety that is being felt around the Emirates right now.

According to the Express, Arsenal are the latest Premier League club to show an interest in Crystal Palace’s highly-rated young right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The 21-year-old has been one of the Eagles most consistent players this season, nailing down a starring role and producing a number of impressive displays for Roy Hodgson’s team. His performances have led to reported interest from the biggest clubs in England.

The reality is that Wan-Bissaka is now one of the most highly-rated young defenders in the Premier League. His performances have led to inevitable interest from the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and now reportedly Arsenal.

Crystal Palace (H)

The loss against Brighton seems to have taken the wind out of Crystal Palace, and at the worst possible time. This should be a guaranteed three points for the Gunners and while we may not like saying that, it’s just the truth. They’re a much better football team than Crystal Palace, and they should be winning comfortably here.

Arsenal v Blackpool Carabao Cup Preview 0

Posted on October 30, 2018 by David Nugent

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host Blackpool at the Emirates Stadium in the last 16 of the Carabao Cup.

The Gunners winning run of 11 games in all competitions ended last time out, as Crystal Palace held Unai Emery’s side to a 2-2 draw at Selhurst Park. However, the draw may do little to stop the Gunners momentum.

A key to the home side’s good recent form has been their attacking prowess, as the Gunners have scored at least two goals in 12 of their last 13 matches in all competitions.

Emery defends ‘angry’ Ozil 0

Arsenal’s 11-game winning streak in all competitions ended on Sunday at Selhurst Park, as Granit Xhaka’s naive reaction gave Wilfried Zaha a chance to go down in the box and the whistle of referee Martin Atkinson enabled Luka Milivojević to slot home from the penalty spot for the second time in the match in the 83rd minute.

However, with 22 minutes left on the clock Arsenal were still in the lead, and Unai Emery saw fit to replace Mesut Ozil with Danny Welbeck. The German midfielder was obviously angry with the manager for having to go off with still a lot to play for, something that in today’s world of social media rarely goes without catching some unwanted attention. He stormed past Emery, threw his gloves down and slammed his bottom down on the bench.
