Arsenal edge past Brentford 0

Six in a row.

While there are about a million different things that you could choose to pick up on from Arsenal’s game against Brentford last night, the most important statistic of them all is this: Arsenal Football Club have won six games in a row. Now while the circumstances behind those wins are a little bit questionable, the truth of the matter is that a win is a win – and that’s all that matters both domestically and in European football. Unai Emery knows how to win football matches, and he showcased that for everyone to see once again last night as Arsenal overcame a tough challenge in the form of Brentford.

While it may not be an absolute guarantee, it may be a good bet to suggest that Bernd Leno will appear against Brentford tonight. Not only would it serve as something of an extra incentive for fans to go to the game in order to see him in person, but it also just makes sense. Petr Cech seems to have the number one spot on lockdown for the next few weeks at the very least, with his performance against Everton at the weekend being a big reason for that.

Arsenal have released some travel information that could throw out some stumbling blocks for those of you who have decided to make the trip over to the Emirates – especially if you aren’t frequent visitors to the ground.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host Brentford at the Emirates Stadium in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The Gunners head into this cup tie in good spirits and on a five-game winning run after their 2-0 home win over Everton on Sunday. The team from north London have a mixed recent record in this competition, mainly due to the mass squad rotation on the part of former boss Arsene Wenger in cup competition.

Arsenal will be returning to the Emirates for the third straight game tomorrow night, as they take on Championship side Brentford in the League (or Carabao if you want to be awkward about it) Cup. The attendances likely aren’t going to be great, as was the case in the Europa League, and that’s one of the primary things that the Gunners need to look out for. This serves as a big day out for the second tier side and they’ll probably bring some impressive numbers, and as a result, there’s a good chance that they’re going to outsing the home side.

It’s time for yet another trip down memory lane, and in this instance, we’re going seven years into the past in order to have a look at a game that some may think isn’t all that important. The encounter was a League Cup tie against Shrewsbury Town, and as you can imagine, a lot of fans didn’t really care about the game at the time. Alas, when Shrewsbury took the lead at the Emirates in the first half, people began to sit up and take notice.

We’re all looking forward to seeing what’s going to happen in the 2018/19 season for Arsenal Football Club, and while some are dreading what’s to come given the uncertainty of the situation, there’s no real reason to be worried. Sure, things may not necessarily be an instant success under the leadership of Unai Emery, but this is going to be a process. Arsenal fans can’t expect things to change overnight, and because of that, we need to start thinking about what the priority is going to be for Emery’s first season in charge.

Three results which killed Arsenal’s season 0

The feeling of excitement is back at the Emirates for the first time in what feels like forever following the announcement of Unai Emery as Arsenal’s new manager. The former Sevilla and PSG boss has found great success elsewhere around Europe, and now, it’s time for him to try his hand in the Premier League. Still, while it’s nice to think about what’s to come in the next few months and possibly years, it’s equally as interesting to look back on what could’ve been from the 2017/18 campaign.

According to Metro, former Manchester City manager and current Hebei China Fortune boss Manuel Pellegrini is on the shortlist to replace Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger when he finally leaves the club.

The Gunners continue to fall down the ranks this season both domestically and in Europe, having lost four consecutive games since 2002. Many fans are wondering just how low things can go throughout the remainder of the campaign, as the calls for Wenger to walk away or be sacked grow stronger and stronger.
