A look at Arsenal’s final eight PL games – Part 2 0

Posted on June 21, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Wolves (A)

Assuming Wolves aren’t in the latter stages of the Europa League at this point, this game could be dangerous. The last time Arsenal went to Molineux they were thoroughly beaten by a Wolves side that, simply put, were much better than them. Will the same thing happen again? Don’t be surprised.

Leicester (H)

Leicester City are a tricky side to deal with, but even with that being the case, there shouldn’t be any kind of overwhelming worry regarding what they’re capable of – especially if Brendan Rodgers is still at the helm. That may seem and sound a little bit harsh, but they just don’t strike us as an intimidating side.

Arsenal’s worst Premier League losses – Part 2 0

Posted on May 17, 2019 by Harry Kettle

West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

Just pitiful. There was no real fight and no real desire, to the point where we were left to wonder whether or not these players even want to secure Champions League football in the first place. The Hammers were a decent side this season but their aspirations weren’t nearly as high as Arsenal’s, and worse yet, the game so quickly after the half time interval. They just seemed to switch off and when you do that at such a high level like this, you’re obviously going to be punished.

Leicester 3-0 Arsenal

Arsenal were just flat, and it was clear to see their passion for the top four race was all but gone. The players were tired, the fans were fed up, and Emery just didn’t have an answer to it. Brendan Rodgers’ momentum since arriving at Leicester quite clearly played a pretty significant role in this game, because the Foxes were just firing on all cylinders. Arsenal just couldn’t keep up with them in any way, shape or form, and that’s a little bit embarrassing when you think about where these two sides were a decade or so ago.

Even if the middle of a pretty embarrassing defeat, there’s always time to take a step back and analyse the positives – or, at least, that’s what some folks would like you to believe. In reality it takes a few days to really reflect and think about what has happened, especially when you play at a level like the Premier League. Case in point: Arsenal fans would’ve understandably been incredibly unhappy about the manner in which they lost to Leicester City at the weekend, but in the end, there were a few positives to take away from the result.

Have Arsenal really made progress under Unai Emery? 0

As we all now know, Arsenal suffered a 3-0 defeat at Leicester On Sunday afternoon. The defeat was almost inevitable mainly due to the Gunners woeful away form this season. What looked like a comfortable end to the season has turned into a nightmare.

Prior to the Leicester game, Emery claimed that the team has progressed from last season. In all honesty, earlier in the season, I believed the team had progressed. However, I do not want to sound fickle, but the last few weeks have made me question whether the team has truly progressed under Emery.

Leicester v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

On Sunday lunchtime, Arsenal travels to the Midlands to face Leicester at the King Power Stadium in a potentially vital game for the Gunners.

Leicester’s recent Premier League form has been inconsistent, as the Foxes have taken just one point from games with Newcastle and last time out. Brendan Rodgers side had won their previous four league matches to keep themselves in with a chance of finishing in seventh place.

As it stands the Foxes are tenth-place in the table, three points off seventh place, which may be enough to secure Europa League qualification for next season.

The reverse fixtures – Part 2 0

Arsenal 1-1 Wolves

Arsenal were fortunate to come away with anything from this game, which kind of tells you all that you need to know about how good Wolverhampton Wanderers have been this season. They’ve taken every single game in their stride, putting on a football clinic against the big boys in the process.

Arsenal 3-1 Leicester

Despite going behind in this one it always felt like Arsenal were going to score as the game went on, and that’s what happened. They just seem to be able to take over at the Emirates in ways that they can’t do away from home, which is something they need to watch out for when they travel to the King Power for the reverse fixture.

The end of the season is almost upon us, and there’s still a lot left to be resolved – especially for Arsenal. In addition to their Europa League quarter final which is coming up sooner than most of us realise, they’re also in a great position to finish in the top four of the Premier League. As we all know that’ll mean that they enter the UEFA Champions League once again, which many considered to be the end goal for Unai Emery in his first season in charge.

Crystal Palace (H)

The loss against Brighton seems to have taken the wind out of Crystal Palace, and at the worst possible time. This should be a guaranteed three points for the Gunners and while we may not like saying that, it’s just the truth. They’re a much better football team than Crystal Palace, and they should be winning comfortably here.

Wolves (A)

Maguire interest? 0

Posted on January 07, 2019 by Harry Kettle

The rumblings surrounding different transfer possibilities continue to swirl around every single club in the Premier League, and Arsenal certainly aren’t immune to that. The Gunners are in need of some changes during the January transfer window and that make is painfully obvious, but the question remains as to what those changes will be.

One example of a potentially intriguing transfer is Harry Maguire heading to the Emirates. While it may not seem particularly likely it definitely feels like he’s going to make the jump to a bigger club at some point, with all due respect to Leicester City. The Foxes are good but Maguire, especially after his performances during the World Cup in the summer, deserves a more high profile move – in our opinion.
