Xhaka owns up to mistake after Leicester game 0

Posted on March 02, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal may have come out on top in their battle against Leicester City this past weekend, but they were certainly made to fight for it – especially after going 1-0 down early on against the Foxes. Xhaka played a role in that goal but instead of the Gunners collapsing in on themselves, they dusted themselves down and went again, eventually winning the game 3-1.

After the result, Xhaka spoke with the media in an honest manner as Arsenal continue to improve and move forward in what can only be described as one of their toughest Premier League seasons to date.

Arsenal are well aware that they’ll be viewed as the underdogs heading into their game against Leicester City today. Still, even with that being the case, they’ll also know that they’ve got what it takes to overcome the Foxes if they can just get things going early on. Whether or not that happens though, given their inconsistencies, remains to be seen.

Gunners manager Mikel Arteta has taken the time to not only look ahead to the Leicester game, but to also reflect on the success of the win over Benfica.

Arsenal fans were left feeling bitterly disappointed last night as the Gunners were beaten 1-0 by Leicester City. The Foxes secured the win thanks to a late goal from Jamie Vardy, ensuring that Arsenal’s questionable start to the new season continued.

In the aftermath of the match, in which there were plenty of problems, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media as the attention turns towards two very different games in the span of just a few days – Dundalk in the Europa League and a clash against Manchester United in the Premier League.

Arsenal are coming off the back of a much-needed win against Rapid Wien in the UEFA Europa League as they bounced back from a narrow defeat to Manchester City last weekend. Alas, as we look ahead to the busy winter period, the games are really going to start coming thick and fast.

The next big test comes in the form of a meeting with Leicester City on Sunday, and while many believe the Gunners should get the job done at the Emirates, Mikel Arteta knows that it’s going to be a tough test.

Now that we’re officially in the international break it’s time to take a step back and examine how things have gone for Arsenal across the first six games. It hasn’t always been the easiest ride but when you look at the whole picture, it’s hard not to get excited about what Mikel Arteta can bring to the club as manager.

This was a pretty easy start to the campaign and the biggest stand out of all was Willian. Sure, he may not have done a whole lot since then, but it was the kind of performance that gave fans something resembling confidence for the first time in a long time.

Arsenal were able to keep their positive start to the season going strong last night as they beat Leicester City 2-0 in the third round of the Carabao Cup. It may not have been the most important game or even the most thrilling, but it was a result that ensures the positive aura around the Emirates continues to hang around.

After the game we saw Gunners boss Mikel Arteta speak with the media as the club prepare themselves for their biggest game of the season so far – a clash with Liverpool on Monday Night Football.

Arsenal are set to return to Carabao Cup action tonight as they prepare to go head to head with Leicester City. Many aren’t particularly bothered about whether or not the Gunners go far in the competition, but what they are interested in is seeing the club’s squad getting back to full fitness.

While many fans rarely look twice at the Carabao Cup, it’s still a competition that holds some kind of prestige – if only because it’s been going on for so long now. Arsenal will be entering the field of play this week as they prepare to lock horns with Leicester City in the third round, knowing that a win could set them on their way to another Wembley appearance.

There’s some sense of normality behind people moaning about the Carabao Cup, and even if there are some out there who won’t watch, it’ll be an intriguing game between two of the Premier League’s finest.

The Carabao Cup question 0

It’s been confirmed by the club that Arsenal will officially begin their Carabao Cup journey next Wednesday when they lock horns with fellow Premier League side Leicester City. While some fans are excited to see some fringe players start or play some kind of role, which seems like what is going to happen, others have questioned whether or not the Carabao Cup should even be happening this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re definitely in the camp of believing the Carabao Cup shouldn’t really exist in its current form for the 2020/21 campaign, and we’re not entirely sure why they’ve gone ahead with it (well, we do – money).

Arsenal face Leicester in Carabao Cup third round 0

Posted on September 07, 2020 by Harry Kettle

The big focus for English football fans right now is the return of the Premier League, Championship and subsequent lower leagues below that – with most things getting underway this weekend. Alas, while that is certainly viewed as the most important thing of all, there’s also the Carabao Cup to worry about.

The secondary competition is so often pushed to one side and given a bad reputation, and it’s only ever really taken seriously when teams are able to do well in it. This year we can’t picture Mikel Arteta putting too much focus on prioritising the League Cup, but if he does, he’ll be taking note of the fact that the Gunners’ first game will be Leicester City in the third round.
