Arsenal’s next big six – Part 2 0

Cardiff (H)

They’ve just got to win this and there are no two ways about it. Cardiff have surprised a lot of people so far this season as they’re still right in the hunt for survival, and we’re anticipating them giving Arsenal a really tough game in this one. Unfortunately for Bluebirds fans that isn’t quite going to be enough, especially considering that Arsenal are much, much stronger at home than they are away from home. It’s going to be closer than a lot of fans would like, but they’ll manage to get the job done.

Lacazette and Aubameyang – Why didn’t it work? 0

Posted on December 09, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal booked fresh three points on Saturday by beating Huddersfield Town 1-0 at the Emirates.

However, even though they’ve now taken their unbeaten run to 21 games in all competitions, the fact that Lucas Torreira needed to step up and produce a moment of brilliance seven minutes from time against an opponent like Huddersfield points to a few issues up front. Let’s take a look at what happened.

Manager Unai Emery started the game with both Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the pitch, and Matteo Guendouzi nearest behind them. Torreira and Granit Xhaka provided the protection ahead of the back three, flanked by Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolašinac pushing up as wing-backs.

Another slow start for Arsenal 0

Arsenal are now 21 games unbeaten in all competitions after Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Huddersfield at the Emirates Stadium. As with most Gunners games this season there were good and not so good points.

One of the good points was that Unai Emery’s team recorded a win and keep up in the race for a top spot. The fact that Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira also had a big effect on another game was a big positive.

Some negatives

Huddersfield obviously came to park the bus, with a ridiculous number of niggling fouls in the first half. Referee Paul Tierney never really had control of the game and the visitors took advantage of his inexperience at Premier League level.

Could Emery bench Aubameyang against Huddersfield? 0

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been in superb form of late for the Gunners. In fact, since his move from Dortmund in the January transfer window, he has impressed in front of goal.

The Gabon striker’s form has attracted the interest of many people, including Fantasy Football enthusiasts, such as myself. With a home game against Huddersfield this afternoon, the striker looks to be set to record a big haul.

Could Aubameyang be rested against Huddersfield?

We are heading into a busy period of the Premier League campaign when top-flight bosses look to rest and rotate their squads. French forward Alexandre Lacazette has started the last two games on the bench.

Arsenal v Huddersfield Premier League Preview 0

On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal will be confident of continuing their 20-game unbeaten run in all competitions, as the Gunners host struggling Huddersfield at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners continued their recent promising form by recording a 2-2 draw at Manchester United. United may be unconvincing form, but they still have a good record at Old Trafford, so it may be considered a decent result with time.

Arsenal have had a habit of drawing league games of late, though, as the team from north London have drawn four of their last six games in the Premier League.

Arsenal v Huddersfield Premier League Preview 0

On Sunday, Arsenal pays a fond farewell to veteran boss Arsene Wenger, as the Gunners travel to Huddersfield on the last day of the Premier League season.

The home side heads into the game on the back of consecutive creditable draws at Manchester City and Chelsea that were enough to seal the Terriers top-flight status for next season.

David Wagner’s side has achieved safety by scoring the second fewest goals in the Premier League, having scored just 28 goals this season. The Yorkshire side has also won just once in their last nine league outings, which is terrible form.

Turns out Arsenal were ideal opponents for Leicester 0

In yesterday’s article, I wrote that Leicester were ideal opponents for Arsenal. Maybe Arsenal were, in fact, ideal opponents for the Foxes, who recorded a 3-1 win over the Gunners after Konstantinos Mavropanos saw red after just 15 minutes.

From then on, it was always going to be difficult for the Gunners to end their poor away record. The north London side did score through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang early in the second half, but goals from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez won the game for the out-of-form Foxes.

Leicester seem like perfect opponents for Arsenal 0

One of Arsenal’s main Achilles heels in recent seasons under veteran boss Arsene Wenger has been their away form. In fact, some have described it as the main reason for the Gunners decline in recent years.

Arsenal’s home form has been very strong in recent seasons. However, a lack of mental strength and quality has seen the Gunners lose far too many games on their travels.

Their recent six-game losing run away from home in the Premier League is a classic example of the problem. Arsenal have just two games left under Wenger, both away from home at Leicester this evening and at relegation-threatened Huddersfield on the final day.

Mesut Ozil shining for Arsenal 1

Posted on November 30, 2017 by David Nugent

Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil is a player that divides opinion. Some believe that he is a footballing genius, a player capable of producing great work of art on the pitch.

Others believe that he is a lazy and lethargic player, who does not give his team enough when really needed.

For me, he is a very talented player, who sometimes is hammered at times because he does not always produce his best form. However, that could apply to any player in world football.

Arsenal seem to be turning a corner 0

It was a five-star performance from the Gunners on Wednesday evening as they continued their rejuvenation. With the win, it seems as though Arsenal are finally beginning to turn a corner.

Arsene Wenger’s men were outstanding on the night as they brushed Huddersfield aside. Goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, and a double from Olivier Giroud were more than enough for the London side as they overpowered their opponents.

The victory has seen Arsenal tighten their grip on fourth-place, with the Gunners two points clear of Liverpool in fifth, and just a point behind Chelsea in third.
