Arsenal v Liverpool Premier League Preview 0

Posted on November 02, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal will put their top four credentials to the test when they welcome Liverpool to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening.

Arsenal have been on a good run of form that has taken the Gunners to fourth spot in the Premier League table. A 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace last time in the league ended a seven-game winning run in the top-flight.

However, Unai Emery’s side are still unbeaten 13 games in all competitions, having recorded 12 wins in the process. The Gunners have also been prolific in the top-flight of late, scoring at least two goals in all but one of their Premier League games this season.

No, not the old recycled story of how Barcelona are looking to sign Spanish full-back Hector Bellerin. It is the Spaniard on the other flank of the Gunners defence that is interesting the Catalan giants.

Yes, Nacho Monreal is interesting the Catalan giants according to the Guardian rumour page, which offers no apologies for the lack of source for their information.

Monreal one of Arsenals most consistent performers

Nacho Monreal does not often receive plaudits for his performances for Arsenal. However, over the past few seasons, he has been one of the most consistent players for the North London side.

Lichtsteiner’s presence at Arsenal can help Hector Bellerin 0

When veteran Switzerland international Stephan Lichtsteiner joined Arsenal from Juventus as a free agent in the summer, most Gunners fans assumed that he would be back-up for first-choice right-back Hector Bellerin.

Expecting competition

True to form, that is what has happened, as the new arrival has played just 55 minutes as a substitute in the Gunners season opener against Manchester City. The 34-year-old was expecting to compete with Bellerin for the right-back spot.

He told the Standard: “I could have changed to five other clubs in the summer, knowing that I would certainly play 47 out of 50 serious matches,”

Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin did a really interesting interview with the Times recently, talking about many things including how badly the abuse he has received online and also during games has affected him.

In reality, on the pitch, Bellerin has experienced mixed fortunes for the side from north London. However, off the pitch, he comes across as an engaging character, willing to talk about many issues.

Abuse affecting him

Talking about the abuse he receives he stated “Some of it can get very abusive. Most of the abuse is online, but you hear it in the stadium, too,”

Bellerin isn’t good enough 0

Arsenal’s season is off to a start that, unfortunately, many people saw coming. That isn’t necessarily an indication of their ability, but when you come up against Manchester City and Chelsea in consecutive weeks, it doesn’t matter who you are – because you’re going to struggle. A lot of Gunners fans came out with their head held high despite the defeat because they know that this journey is going to be full of ups and downs with Unai Emery. It was never going to be easy, and they certainly went down swinging against the Blues.

This is going to be a pretty controversial topic, but we want to talk about Hector Bellerin – and more specifically, why we think he needs to have a big season with the Gunners. The 23-year-old has always been viewed as a young player who can be something of a game changer in North London, and for the most part, that’s turned out to be the case. However, what we can’t advocate for is this attitude he seems to have developed in the last few years of his career.

Bellerin happy at Arsenal 0

Hector Bellerin has once again reiterated his commitment to Arsenal by saying he’s very happy where he is.

Bellerin has been linked with a possible departure for a long time by various media outlets, but everything that ever came from the player himself on the subject has indicated otherwise. He spoke about how happy he is at the Emirates back in May, and added then that London had become his home now.

Fortunately, nothing seems to have changed since then, despite the arrival of Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer from Juventus this summer.

Stephan Lichtsteiner a no-brainer signing for Arsenal 1

Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for out-of-contract Juventus full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner. The veteran Switzerland international is weighing up his options in Turin, as he can move elsewhere as a free agent this summer.

According to reports from the Metro, the 34-year-old has been in talks with the north London giants for the last few weeks. However, the player himself has admitted that he is not sure there will be any developments before this summer’s World Cup.

Bellerin isn’t going anywhere 0

Hector Bellerin has dismissed rumours of a potential departure from Arsenal. Apparently, the full-back has told Sky Sports his future remains at Arsenal. He pointed out that his contract has a long time to run yet, and that London has become his home.

Born in Catalonia, Spain, Bellerin started his career in Barcelona’s youth teams before moving to Arsenal in 2011. Two years later he signed his first professional contract with the Gunners, and he was immediately loaned out to Watford. After a season with the Hornets, he returned to the Emirates and has been here ever since, accumulating a total of 160 games and scoring 7 goals in an Arsenal shirt so far.

Hector Bellerin is done 0

At the age of just 23, you’d think that Hector Bellerin would be on the verge of reaching ‘world-class’ status based on the hype surrounding him over the last few years. Instead, the Spaniard seems to be backtracking in the worst way possible and after last night, we believe that he shouldn’t be seen in an Arsenal shirt for a very, very long time.
