Fascinating statistic from the Fulham game 0

Posted on October 09, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal walked through Fulham at the weekend with, arguably, their most impressive performance to date this season. They put a beating on the Cottagers and while they certainly struggled at points in the first half, they managed to overcome any adversity that was put in their path – and in the end, they registered their ninth consecutive victory in all competitions.

Making history

Still, while the performance itself was great, we want to focus on one statistic in particular: Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored and assisted for Arsenal against Fulham – which is the first time in Premier League history two substitutes have scored and assisted for a team in a single game. As bizarre and specific as that may seem, we can’t help but be extremely impressed by that.

Gunners firing under Unai Emery 0

One of the main concerns when Unai Emery first arrived at Arsenal this summer was the defence. The defensive situation has not changed radically and the team could still be slightly more solid. However, at the minute the way the attacking players are performing, the defensive issues have been cast aside.

Fantastic second half at Fulham

The Gunners 5-1 win at Fulham on Sunday was a superb result. However, at half time the game was truly in the balance at 1-1. Emery’s side had not produced first 45 minutes of football.

Arsenal run through Fulham 0

Arsenal may not be viewed as serious title contenders this season, but they’re certainly going to be there or thereabouts by the time this season comes to an end. If you want proof of that then just take a look at their game this weekend against Fulham, as the Gunners took their winning streak up to nine games at Craven Cottage.

History is a very important aspect of any football club. It defines its identity, it sets the way the world looks at it in terms of greatness. It sets the bar for the level of players wanting to put on the shirt, and along with several other important factors it ultimately influences its success.

Nobody can dispute Arsenal’s history. Nobody can objectively say Arsene Wenger and his 22 years at the club didn’t write a few glorious chapters of it, for all the supposed failings of his in the last few seasons. After all, three league titles and a Champions League final along with numerous domestic cups, speak for themselves.

Fulham v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on October 06, 2018 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal makes the short trip to face London rivals Fulham at Craven Cottagers in the Premier League.

Fulham have enjoyed a mixed start to their return to the Premier League. However, the Cottagers have picked up just five points from their first seven league games this season.

A 3-0 defeat at Everton last time out means that Slavisa Jokanovic’s team have now failed to win in their last four top-flight games, picking up two draws and suffering two defeats. The home side has struggled defensively this season, conceding at least two goals in six of their first seven league games.

Looking ahead to Fulham 0

While the focus of Arsenal Football Club right now is on their Europa League tie against Qarabag, it’s worth noting that they’ll be returning to Premier League action just a few days later as they travel to Craven Cottage. Now while we aren’t big fans of looking too deep into the schedule, mainly because you have to play every team twice anyway, this certainly seems to be the opening of the door required for the Gunners to extend their winning streak to at least nine games.

Bolstering the other London clubs? 0

As the summer transfer window comes to an end and the twenty teams involved in the Premier League get ready to kickstart their season, it’s always fun to take a quick look back at what went down in the summer transfer window. Of course, some clubs were able to fare better than others but overall, most teams got what they wanted and the majority are heading into the season in a stronger position than they were back at the end of last season.

Calum Chambers set for loan move to Fulham 0

According to the BBC, Arsenal defender Calum Chambers is set to join London rivals Fulham on a season-long loan deal. The report suggests that the player just needs to agree on personal terms with Cottagers before completing the move.

The 23-year-old has only recently signed a contract extension in north London. However, it seems that he is moving to Craven Cottage for more regular first team football this season.

Pushed down the pecking order by new arrivals

The summer arrivals of Swiss international defender Stephan Lichtsteiner and Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos has seen Chambers fall down the pecking order at the north London.

Reported Arsenal target completes shock move to Fulham 0

Posted on July 12, 2018 by David Nugent

Reportedly, Arsenal target Ivorian midfielder Jean Michael Seri has completed a shock move to Premier League new boys Fulham from Nice for a fee reported to be in the region of £18million.

Seri had been continually linked with a move to both Arsenal and Chelsea. Both London giants were linked with £35million bids for the midfielder last summer. However, the midfielder has now joined Fulham for a much smaller fee than mooted in the past.

Arsenal must be happy with their midfield options

It seems that Arsenal are satisfied with their midfield options. The Gunners already had the likes of Granit Xhaka, Aaron Ramsey and Mohamed Elneny available to new boss Unai Emery before the summer transfer window opened.

On This Day In 2011: Final day draw with Fulham 0

Posted on May 22, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s time to take yet another trip down memory lane, and while this one is certainly dramatic, it won’t bring back the fondest of memories for Arsenal fans. Seven years ago today, the Gunners drew 2-2 with Fulham in a game which ensured that they would be finishing in fourth position to conclude their Premier League campaign. While some may see that as a positive, especially considering how the last few years have gone for them, it was still a disappointing result as they were unable to jump into the top three which would’ve given them an automatic passage into the UEFA Champions League for the following season.
