Arsenal linked with Adam Lallana 0

Posted on February 07, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

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 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 fell to Leicester City last night at the King Power Stadium, ensuring that their push for a place in the top four becomes all the more difficult. With the international break looming and Emery’s position as manager being as uncertain as ever, the man himself took the time to speak with the media.

On the loss to Leicester:
Good evening. We can be disappointed with the result but with the attitude of the players, they did the game plan we prepared for. We started the first half by having chances by controlling the game, and at the start of the second half too, in our moment like we wanted. They created some chances too and when they scored the first goal, that’s when we lost the opportunity to do something in that match.

Bitter disappointment 0

There’s just no way of getting around the fact that Arsenal have really let themselves down over the course of the last few weeks. It seemed as if the stars were aligning perfectly for them to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League, and yet, that no longer seems like it’s going to be the case. They’re still in the running but with just a few games to go it really does feel like they’ve allowed this race to slip through their fingers.

Over the course of the summer, and more specifically the 2018 FIFA World Cup, many heroes were born across all 32 countries that competed in the finals. One nation, in particular, who experienced something of a resurgence on the biggest stage was England as the Three Lions pushed themselves all the way to the semi-finals of the tournament in Russia. Some bitter fans will argue that they had an easy route to get there but either way, it’s hard not to be excited by the future of this team.

Schmeichel blames his team and the referee for Leicester’s defeat to Arsenal 0

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel believes his team didn’t deserve to get any more from the Monday’s game at the Emirates than they did, according to Leicestershire Live.

The Danish international says his team were clearly the better of the two in the first 45 minutes, but the game ended up being a classic ‘tale of two halves’ with Arsenal responding well after the break. He also laments the decision of referee Chris Kavanagh not award the Foxes a penalty for a clear handball early in the match.

Many sceptics felt as if the time off for the international break was going to seriously hamper Arsenal’s hopes of registering ten wins in a row – but those sceptics were wrong. They hosted Leicester City at the Emirates last night and put in the kind of gritty, quality performance that you need in times like these – and now, the fans can officially say that the Gunners have picked up 10 wins on the trot. Wow.

They say football is a beautiful game and it deserves to be played beautifully – but, in some instances, you just need to win. Avoid the drama and avoid the hassle of playing great looking football for ninety minutes, and just register the three points. That’s the position that Arsenal find themselves in today, as they gear up for a big game against Leicester City on Monday Night Football this evening.
