Posted on May 09, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s time for us to take yet another trip down memory lane, and it’s certainly a positive journey this time around. On this day in 2010, the Gunners tore through Fulham on their way to confirming that St Totteringham’s Day would be going ahead as they secured 3rd spot in the Premier League above their bitter rivals. It was a long and difficult season, but in the end, they managed to get the job done.

Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom could be set for a January move away from the North London club, according to reports.

The 21-year-old is close to returning to action following a back injury he suffered back in September, but the Mirror reports that Arsene Wenger is contemplating an option to send his striker out on loan in order to help him gain valuable first-team experience.

Akpom has made only one senior appearance for the Gunners this term, taking part in Arsenal’s 4-0 League Cup win over Nottingham Forest and is likely to find it hard to break into the first-team fold.

The Telegraph has learned that Fulham youngster Patrick Roberts is being linked with a summer switch to the Emirates. Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing the talented attacker and could step up their interest at the end of the season.

While the Gunners desperately need to reinforce the squad if they are to challenge for honours next season, club official are clearly thinking about future as well, as witnessed by their interest in the Fulham starlet.

Arsenal’s last-gasp 2-2 draw with Swansea yesterday was not only a disappointing result, the draw all but ends the Gunners hopes of winning the Premier League title this season. The bigger worry now is that the side from north London could even lose out on fourth place and a Champions League spot.

Tough

Arsenal’s next two games are a home clash against in-form Manchester City and then a visit to another in-form side Everton, who are looking to replace the Gunners in the top four. Those two games look like tough fixtures for anybody at the moment, never mind an Arsenal side looking like the lack confidence.

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is reportedly close to signing for Arsenal, according to respected pundit Guillem Balague.

‘Morata has agreed to join Arsenal IF, I repeat IF, I insist IF, clubs agree fee. He will push for Madrid to accept Arsenal’s offer.’ – he said on Twitter.

The young Spaniard has been linked with a move to Arsenal all season, but no progress has been made on the initial interest shown from the Gunners.

How much has Wojciech Szczesny improved this season? 3

Posted on January 22, 2014 by David Nugent

As one of my colleagues wrote earlier, Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny made his 100th appearance for the Gunners in the 2-0 win over Fulham at the weekend.

The Poland international kept his 30th clean sheet for the Gunners against the Cottagers, which is not a bad record considering the Gunners have been less than solid at the back in previous seasons.

Change

This season has seen a change in fortunes for Arsenal at the back. The Gunners have the best defensive record in the Premier League, conceding just 19 goals in their 22 top-flight outings this season.

Arsenal must start performing for 90 minutes 3

Posted on January 19, 2014 by David Nugent

Arsenal defeated Fulham 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium yesterday to retain the lead at the top of the Premier League table. The first half was goalless and to be slightly harsh on the Gunners they only produced a good performance for 45 minutes.

Half

This has become a theme in recent weeks for Arsenal, winning but not playing that well for 90 minutes. It is a sign of a good team that the Gunners can win without playing well at times. However, Arsenal have been getting away with not playing at their best for 90 minutes because they are playing some of the poorer teams.

Arsenal’s unbeaten run continues 0

Posted on January 19, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

A 2-0 win against London rivals Fulham was enough to stretch Arsenal’s unbeaten run to an impressive six Premier League games – in which time the Gunners have conceded just two goals.

As a result, Arsene Wenger’s men remain top of the division after 22 games, and title talk remains on the lips of most Arsenal fans who dare to dream of a Premier League crown 10 years on from their infamous ‘invincibles’ campaign that saw them go an entire league season unbeaten – winning the league in style.

Arsenal host Fulham at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday looking to stay at the top of the Premier League table for another week. The Gunners head into the game with a good home record, having claimed seven victories, two draws and lost just once at home this season in the top-flight.

Arsene Wenger’s men will be looking for their sixth consecutive victory and will be confident of taking maximum points. The visitors have a terrible record against Arsenal. The Cottagers have only beaten the Gunners once in their last ten meetings.
