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.

Mesut Ozil made his third start of the season in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup away to Liverpool on Wednesday, and he was one of the standout performers in both teams, despite Arsenal failing to move on to the next round. It was certainly a thrilling game, given it saw 10 goals scored, and it eventually came down to penalties in which Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher managed to save the effort of Dani Ceballos, providing an advantage his teammates capitalized on.

Arsenal lose Carabao Cup classic to Liverpool on penalties 0

After one of the craziest Carabao Cup games in recent memory last night, Arsenal were beaten 5-4 on penalties by Liverpool at Anfield. It was one of those encounters that will be remembered long into the future of the competition, and the funniest part of it all is neither team put out a full first team. Both sides had notable senior players starting the game, and if pushed for a pick out of the two, we’d argue Arsenal were slightly stronger than Liverpool.

Arsenal went down to Liverpool last night on penalties, following an insane 5-5 game at Anfield. The Reds will now turn their attention towards the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup, whereas Gunners manager Unai Emery needs to reflect on where it all went wrong.

Liverpool vs Arsenal – Preview 0

Posted on October 30, 2019 by Harry Kettle

The Premier League returns this weekend but before all of that, we’re going to take a deep dive into the Carabao Cup. The competition often receives a great deal of stick for being unimportant, but the truth of the matter is that it serves as another opportunity for teams to win some silverware and lift a trophy up high at Wembley.

Two sides who will be amongst the favourites to do just that are Liverpool and Arsenal, who are set to meet at Anfield later tonight with the winner progressing to the quarter-final stage of the competition. There are going to be different priorities bouncing back and forth between the two clubs this season, but either way, we’re expecting a pretty strong game between the top six sides on Merseyside.

A look at the rivals 0

While Arsenal’s game against Sheffield United may be the most important thing for the club today, it’s also important to take a look around and see how their rivals fared during their own games. It’s never too early to consider the battle for the top four to be just that: a battle. Nobody really knows who is going to be seriously involved in the race for quite some time, but it’s obvious to see who is going to be mixing it up at the top, so we may as well not try and get around that fact.

Matip on why Arsenal are difficult to play against 0

Posted on August 28, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal were unable to overcome the challenge of European champions Liverpool this past weekend, losing 3-1 to Jurgen Klopp’s side at Anfield. It was a pretty comprehensive win for the Reds, but there were certainly points in which the visitors looked like they had the potential to cause Liverpool some real damage. It didn’t quite work out that way, though, with one of the reasons for that being Joel Matip.

After seemingly solidifying himself as van Dijk’s right hand man at the back for the first team, Matip was able to score one of the three goals that led to Arsenal slipping to a defeat. After the fact, Matip spoke to and actually spoke out about why Unai Emery’s men were difficult to play against.

The Anfield defeat – perspective needed 0

As I’m sure you’re all painfully aware, Arsenal were thoroughly beaten by Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday. The stats of the game were heavily in favour of the home side and they go some way in providing the reasons for the final score (3-1). They had more possession, more shots both on and off target, and the ball spent most of the 90 minutes in the third of the pitch which the Gunners were defending. But the most damning piece of information is the fact that this was now the fourth consecutive defeat away to Liverpool; ever since the 3-3 draw back in January 2016, Arsenal have been unable to get a single point there.

Arsenal outclassed by Liverpool 0

Posted on August 25, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal went into their game against Liverpool last night knowing that they were facing an uphill battle to get anything out of it. The European champions have made a perfect start to the campaign, and they’ve done so with pretty flawless ease. In the end, the Gunners were indeed outclassed by the better team as the Reds ran out 3-1 winners at Anfield.

Throughout the first half hour of the game it looked as if Arsenal could have more of a chance than people gave them credit for, with Nicolas Pepe having a lot of joy against the team that were heavily linked with signing him. After Matip gave the hosts the lead in the 41st minute, though, it was clear to see that the momentum had turned in a big way.

Aubameyang thinks Arsenal can match Liverpool 0

Sitting down with Sky Sports, Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang talked about his expectations from the Saturday’s match against Liverpool and how things will change for them now that the club have signed Nicolas Pepe for a record amount of 79 million euros.

It is no surprise that there are great expectations from the striking trio: Aubameyang himself, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe. Aubameyang and Lacazette had a highly successful season last year even without the newest addition to their team. The two of them scored 50 times between themselves, the former 31 and the latter 19, while Pepe, who played at Lille last season, scored 23 goals.
