Thursday nights game is must-win for Arsenal 0

Posted on April 09, 2019 by David Nugent

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.

One of the problems with supporting Arsenal is that you just never know what a bad result is going to be lurking around the next corner. You can say the same thing about a lot of teams, which we understand, but it’s just a little bit different when it comes to the Gunners. They could be on a fantastic run of form, to the point where they’re considered to be the favourites in whatever ‘race’ they’re involved in, only for things to fall apart in the blink of an eye.

Frustration control important – Emery 0

Arsenal succumbed to defeat at the hands of Everton on Sunday as the Toffees took the lead in the 10th minute through their former captain Phil Jagielka, who had only come into the starting XI at the last possible moment to fill in for the ill Michael Keane. The Merseysiders then held out for the rest of the game and condemned Arsenal to remain in fourth place, a point behind bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

It was a frustrating affair altogether. Everton’s winning goal came after a foul throw-in as Lucas Digne clearly stepped over the touchline while taking it, but there’s no hiding from the fact that the throw-in was well designed by Everton and poorly defended by Arsenal.

Arsenal’s terrible away form in the Premier League continued on Sunday, as the Gunners went down to a 1-0 defeat at Everton’s Goodison Park. In truth, Unai Emery’s side were fortunate not to suffer a heavy defeat, as the home side were simply better all over the pitch.

Arsenal easily beat at Goodison Park

The home side seemed to simply have more determination and desire to win. When they had the ball, they made better use of it too. Only a lack of ruthlessness in front of goal prevented a bigger victory for Marco Silva’s team.

Arsenal makes a potentially tricky trip to Everton later today in what should be an intriguing clash. One interesting rumour that has developed that involves both clubs is that the Gunners are interested in signing Toffees centre-back Michael Keane.

Happy at Everton

However, the England international has been quick to dismiss the rumours stating he is happy on Merseyside. The former Manchester United star told the Daily Star: “It’s just something you don’t really think about to be honest. I didn’t really think about it when I was at Burnley.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal travels to Merseyside to face Everton at Goodison Park, in what could be a crucial match in the Gunners pursuit of a top-four spot this season.

Everton looked to have found a touch of form heading into this clash. The Toffees have recorded back-to-back 2-0 wins over Chelsea and West Ham, producing a particularly impressive display at the London Stadium.

A crucial factor in the Merseysider’s recent return to form has been a big defensive improvement, as Marco Silva’s team has now kept clean sheets in four of their last five league outings. At the other end of the pitch, they have also scored at least twice in four of their last five league matches.

Last six games against Everton 0

Arsenal are set to return to Premier League action this weekend, as they go head to head with Everton. This is a fixture that is one of the most frequently played in the realms of English football, and as we look ahead to the future, it seems like both teams will be sticking around at the highest level for quite a while yet.

The Gunners know that they’ve got their Champions League hopes to worry about, whereas the Toffees are very much still in the mix for a Europa League spot. It’s going to be a pretty tight and tense game from the word go, and because of that, we thought we’d take a minute to step back and look at what the last six meetings between the two teams were like.

Arsenal injury updates prior to Everton game 0

Arsenal will face Everton this weekend in the Premier League, in a game that many fans are already writing off as a guaranteed three points. As we all know, that’s a pretty risky strategy, especially when you take a look at the injury concerns that Arsenal have got to deal with.

It’s not like the entire squad is depleted or anything like that, but there are definitely concerns that should be noted as we gear up for Sunday. A few of these players have been out for quite some time now so it won’t come as much of a surprise to see them on the shelf, but for the sake of being thorough, we’re going to include all of them.

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.

The end of the season is almost upon us, and there’s still a lot left to be resolved – especially for Arsenal. In addition to their Europa League quarter final which is coming up sooner than most of us realise, they’re also in a great position to finish in the top four of the Premier League. As we all know that’ll mean that they enter the UEFA Champions League once again, which many considered to be the end goal for Unai Emery in his first season in charge.
