On whether wins like this will convince Auba to sign a new contract:
Hopefully. Not just the wins but as well what we are trying to do. Does he really enjoy walking out onto the pitch every time he goes? It’s very much part of what we are trying to build here and I think he is with that mindset at the moment.
On whether he initially questioned Aubameyang’s attitude about defending:
I had two questions [about Auba’s attitude to defending]. One was whether he wanted to do it, or could he not do it physically? So once I found out that physically he could do it, it was about convincing him to do it and that he can do it every three days. He’s showing that. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal faced a stiff challenge at the Emirates this weekend when they went head to head with Everton. In an incredibly dramatic, back and forth clash of styles, it was the Gunners who came away with a huge 3-2 win. Now, the big question is whether or not they can sustain this momentum.
Prior to all that we heard from Mikel Arteta who spoke about Arsenal’s win against his former side. .......Read more here.....

Mikel Arteta has agreed a three-and-a-half year deal to take over as Arsenal manager and should be appointed officially in time to take charge of the team which will face Everton on Saturday, according to Mirror.
Apparently, the former Arsenal midfielder is set to sit on the Manchester City bench next to Pep Guardiola one last time when the Premier League champions face Oxford United in the quarterfinal of the Carabao Cup tonight (Wednesday), and he should be confirmed as the new Arsenal boss shortly afterwards. The negotiations over the contract were intense in the last 48 hours, but club director Josh Kroenke, son of owner Stan, has now returned to the US with an agreement in place. .......Read more here.....

Alex Iwobi has left Arsenal Football Club after departing on Deadline Day. The Gunners were able to get a pretty nice fee for the Nigerian international, who wound up joining fellow Premier League side Everton in an exceptionally random last minute deal. Interestingly enough this deal seems to have split the Gunners fanbase down the middle, with some agreeing with it and others feeling as if it was a poor decision from the club.
As reported by Evening Standard, the man himself had the following comments to make as he begins this brand new chapter of his career with the Toffees on Merseyside. .......Read more here.....

City of Manchester Stadium – 55,017
They call it a tinpot ground and while we’d like to give City fans the benefit of the doubt, we just can’t. It feels a little bit soulless there and bizarrely enough, that was also the case before they were even taken over. Perhaps it was a foreshadowing of some sort.
Anfield – 54,074
It’s not in a great area and the stadium itself isn’t all that impressive, but the atmosphere, especially on European nights, makes you forget about all of that. It’s just a really special place to watch a game of football and the only people you’ll find to disagree with that probably spend their days at Old Trafford or Goodison. .......Read more here.....

According to the Express, Everton are the favourites to sign Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck this summer. The report claims that the Merseysider’s are prepared to hand the 28-year-old a contract worth around £100,000 per-week this summer.
Welbeck is of course out of contract with the Gunners this summer and will leave the club on a free transfer.
Endured an injury-hit stint at Arsenal
Danny Welbeck’s Arsenal career has been injury plagued. The England international has spent five years with the north London club but has never really managed to nail down a regular starting spot at the club. .......Read more here.....

We’re getting closer and closer to the end of the Premier League season, and for Arsenal, the success of their campaign really does depend on the Europa League now. There’s still a chance they could leapfrog rivals Tottenham Hotspur and break into the top four, but realistically speaking that doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen.
The last few weeks have been pretty desperate for the club as they’ve been unable to make any major dent in the aforementioned battle for a Champions League spot. The rest of the sides around them have also been slipping up which has given them more opportunities than they probably deserved, but given how ‘easy’ their run-in seemed, being in this position heading into the final day just seems utterly unacceptable. .......Read more here.....

According to ESPN, Arsenal are interested in signing Barcelona playmaker Andre Gomes this summer. The Portuguese international has revived his career on-loan at Everton this season. The Toffees are confident of sealing a permanent deal for the midfielder.
However, both Arsenal and are also Tottenham are also reportedly monitoring Gomes situation. Barcelona are believed to be looking for around £26million for the talented star. Gunners head coach Unai Emery and director of football operations Raul Sanllehi are reported to be big fans of the Portuguese midfielder. .......Read more here.....

Everton 1-0 Arsenal
The disclaimer here is that Everton have been playing some really nice stuff in recent weeks, but at the same time, this isn’t a game Arsenal should’ve been losing – not by a long shot. They were just thoroughly outplayed from an attacking perspective and while they may have had the majority of the possession, they just weren’t able to do anything with it.

Arsenal have little time to dwell on yet another poor away display last time out, which saw the Gunners beaten comfortably 1-0 by Everton at Goodison Park. Instead, the team from north London will turn their attention to Thursday night’s home game against Napoli.
The Europa League quarter-final first leg clash is a must-win one for Unai Emery’s side, mainly due to their inability to win away from home, even against the likes of BATE Borisov. .......Read more here.....
