Gunners have a stellar record against Leicester 0

Posted on October 18, 2018 by David Nugent

It seems that most teams that have visited Arsenal in recent Premier League games have terrible records on the Gunners home soil, whether that is at Highbury or the Emirates Stadium. Well, another team with a terrible away record against the Gunners roll up to the Emirates Stadium on Monday night in the shape of Leicester City.

Arsenal are one of Leicester’s bogey teams

Arsenal have become one of Leicester’s Premier League bogey teams of late. In fact, the Foxes have won just two of their 24 Premier League meetings with the team from north London, while suffering 15 defeats in the process.

£150k a week for Ramsey? 0

Posted on October 18, 2018 by Harry Kettle

There are reports floating around that Everton will be attempting to lure Aaron Ramsey to Goodison Park with an offer believed to be worth £150,000 a week for the Welshman. While that may initially sound pretty appealing to literally anyone who isn’t Aaron Ramsey, it seems a little off given that we’ve also heard that he has been holding out for £250,000 a week at Arsenal.

The Gunners seemingly weren’t interested in forking out that kind of cash to keep him on the books which is why he’s looking elsewhere, but there’s one thing we’ve learned from this whole saga: you literally can’t trust any sources until something is made official.

Arsene Wenger still has a lot to give the game 0

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes that he will be back in management by January. The veteran French boss left Arsenal after 22 years in the summer but has so far resisted the temptation of a return to management.

However, Wenger has been linked with a number of managerial positions since leaving the north London club.

Back in work by January

Sky Sports quote Wenger as saying: “From my 22 years at Arsenal, I have big experience on different levels. There are enquiries from all over the world,”

Everton want Ramsey 0

We apologise in advance for bringing up Aaron Ramsey again, but let’s face it, the guy is incredibly topical right now and it’d be wrong for us to pretend otherwise. Sure, we all have our problems with the way in which he seems to be holding the club up for money, but as long as that doesn’t impact the team on the pitch, then we’ll be happy.

Ajax star’s agent wants him to move to Arsenal 0

Ajax star Hakim Ziyech is being linked with a move to Arsenal courtesy of his agent Rene van der Dijp. The Dutch agent has talked about wanting the likes of Arsenal or Liverpool to make a bid for the Moroccan international.

Van der Dijp told Dutch publication Voetbal Primeur: “I hope that there will be a better club than Roma – an Arsenal or Liverpool,” That is a major insult to the Giallorossi, who have a fine history.

Danny Welbeck attracting interest from Everton 0

Posted on October 04, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Mirror, Everton are monitoring Danny Welbeck’s contract situation at Arsenal, as the forward’s contract creeps closer to ending. The forward is in the last year of his deal with the north London club and there has been no news of contract negotiations regarding the striker.

Welbeck looks to be surplus to requirements and can discuss a move to a foreign club in January. However, the Gunners may contemplate trying to sell the striker in the January transfer window, although he could still prove to be an asset to the Gunners.

Ramsey on his way to Merseyside? 0

Aaron Ramsey seems set to leave Arsenal after he completes his 11th season with the club. His current deal expires next summer and the negotiations about a new one have reportedly broken down, though it remains unclear over what. Some believe it’s because he wants recognition of his importance to the team in the form of a lucrative weekly paycheck, such as Mesut Ozil managed to secure for example. Others feel there might be something else behind it, but that’s not really important at the moment.

Arsenal win again but same problems appear 0

Arsenal beat Everton 2-0 on Sunday, and it seems the season has taken a full turn to a promising one. This game is the Gunners’ fourth success in a row after suffering two defeats at the start of the Premier League, and it needs to be said that those defeats happened at the hands of two excellent teams.

The game was won thanks to two strikes from Arsenal’s two most potent attacking players in Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but giving a few details a better look, unimportant though they may seem, reveals that some old problems still haven’t been dealt with. Even though Lacazette and Aubameyang did their job upfront and scored the goals, the indisputable fact that the best performer in the team was actually Petr Cech is pretty telling.

Positives to take for Arsenal from win over Everton 0

Posted on September 24, 2018 by David Nugent

The above title may be strange to say, but Arsenal’s performance in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Arsenal was not all positive. The Gunners eventually earned the victory, but for periods of the encounter with the Toffees, mainly the first half, the team from north London looked poor and disjointed.

Here are a few positives I suggest that Arsenal will take from the game:

Life still left in Petr Cech

It would be fair to say that Arsenal may have been going in at half time behind if it were not for the veteran goalkeeper. Cech kept out efforts by Theo Walcott, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison to keep the scores level.

Arsenal keep the ball rolling with win against Everton 0

There were some nerves heading into Arsenal’s game against Everton at the weekend, which is to be expected given the run they’ve been on as of late. Alas, some fans continue to insist on putting pressure onto the shoulders of the players and management, so it was nice to see that the Gunners answered those calls with a 2-0 victory over the Toffees at the weekend. It certainly wasn’t simple and there were issues littered throughout the squad, but a win is a win – and a clean sheet is a clean sheet.
