Arteta reacts to controversial Leicester draw 0

Posted on July 08, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal looked set to claim an invaluable three points in the race for the top four last night against Leicester City, but after a disastrous final 15 minutes of the game, they only managed to secure a draw. While the Foxes did come on strong in the second half, it’s safe to say that there were more than a few questionable decisions from the officials.

After the game, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta spoke with the media regarding how the game went down.

The relentless Premier League schedule ensures that we won’t go without football over the course of the next few weeks as we ramp up preparations for the end of the season – and the start of the next. Of course, there’s still a whole lot left that needs to be determined at both the top and bottom end of the table, with the European places being a crucial part of the entertainment.

While fans may still be riding the high of beating Wolves at the weekend, there is simply no rest for the wicked. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta recently took part in a Sunday night press conference in order to look ahead to the game against Leicester City which, once again, could be viewed as the biggest test so far for Arteta as his side continues to try and hunt down a place in either the Champions League or Europa League.

Real, Barcelona and Leicester monitoring Matteo Guendouzi? 0

It has been a season rather loaded with controversies for Matteo Guendouzi. He was called out for a bout of poor behaviour at Arsenal’s training camp in Dubai in the winter, with head coach Mikel Arteta reportedly not impressed, and he put on a show of anger at the end of the Gunners’ defeat away to Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

Five minutes before the break, the Seagulls forward Neal Maupay rather thuggishly bumped into Bernd Leno as the Arsenal goalkeeper caught the ball near the edge of the box. He was probably trying to make the German either drop the ball or step over the line, but the result of the contact was that Leno lost his footing and landed awkwardly, getting injured in the process and having to make way for Emiliano Martinez.

Arsenal urged to keep Tierney amid Leicester links 0

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour believes the Gunners shouldn’t allow Kieran Tierney to leave the club after only one season.

Arsenal signed Tierney last summer from Celtic for £25 million after pursuing him for several months. The 23-year-old played for the Scottish champions under the command of Brendan Rodgers, now of course, in charge at Leicester. The Foxes have an established left-back of their own in Ben Chilwell, but Chilwell is reportedly a priority target for Chelsea this summer.

Three Arsenal fixtures rescheduled 0

One of the minor trials and tribulations that comes with being a Premier League club is the constant fixture changes that we all have to deal with. Teams up and down the league will their plans and preparations change, sometimes fairly dramatically, all in the name of television coverage.

While we all enjoy watching a game at home from time to time, especially if you’re a neutral, it can get a little bit frustrating to see the overwhelming power and influence that these television companies have over a league with the sort of reputation that the Premier League commands.

Arsenal linked with Adam Lallana 0

According to Liverpool Echo, Adam Lallana is set to leave Liverpool at the end of the season. That’s when his contract expires, and a decision has been reached that there wouldn’t be any talks about a new deal.

Lallana left Southampton as an attacking midfielder and joined Liverpool back in 2014, when the Merseysiders were under the command of current Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers. The current Leicester City boss deployed him in that role too, as did Jurgen Klopp upon his arrival. But as the German too charge of his first full season at the club, he changed his formation to 4-3-3 and Lallana played most of the 2016/17 as a box-to-box runner, where he was extremely efficient. He was a crucial part of the team which managed to fight their way back to the Champions League at the end of that season, at the expense of none other than Arsenal.

Wilfred Ndidi, Dries Mertens and Kevin Volland linked with Arsenal 0

With Arsenal likely to go through some changes in the squad following the arrival of Mikel Arteta at the helm, reports have started linking the club with various players ahead of the January transfer window.

Wilfred Ndidi

One of the louder names, at least when the Premier League is concerned, is certainly Wilfred Ndidi of Leicester. Mirror claim Arsenal are very interested in his services. A proper defensive midfield specialist, boasting great positional awareness and superb tackling accuracy, the 25-year-old is among those most responsible that the Foxes are where they are at the moment – second only to Liverpool in the league. Lucas Torreira was brought in by Unai Emery in the summer of 2018 to fill that position, but the Uruguay international can arguably be said to have failed to make the position his own. What’s more, he has been occasionally deployed further up the pitch, as well as linked with departure from the club.

Arsenal fall to loss against Leicester 0

Arsenal knew that the game against Leicester City this past weekend was huge in terms of Unai Emery’s future with the club. While the Foxes have been on a superb run of form, the Gunners still knew they had to put in a solid enough performance to warrant keeping the Spaniard on beyond the international break. In the end, they didn’t do much to convince the boardroom that he should be given another chance.

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers is perceived to be a player that can help guide the club to better times from a defensive standpoint. During their game against Leicester at the weekend, however, nothing could get them out of the mess they were in. After the game, Chambers spoke to the media about what exactly went wrong.
