Arsenal linked with Jesse Lingard 0

It was only a matter of time before the impressive form Jesse Lingard has been on at West Ham started producing links left, right and centre. Arsenal are almost never left out of these speculative ‘reports‘, and so it’s no real surprise that they’ve popped up in relation to the 28-year-old forward.

Make no mistake, Lingard is a talented footballer. Natural ability has never been a problem for him, and it’s very likely that his attitude was the reason why Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided to put him far from his mind when it comes to shaping his squad on a matchday. This term, he only made three appearances for his parent club, two in the Carabao Cup and one in the FA Cup.

Arsenal would’ve fancied their chances against Manchester United last night, but for whatever reason, they just couldn’t stick the ball in the back of the net – and therefore, were forced to settle for a 0-0 draw. It’s a result that favours the Gunners moreso than the Red Devils but even so, there are still many questions about the future direction of this squad under Mikel Arteta.

The Spaniard spoke with the media after the game as the attention immediately turns to a very winnable game against struggling Wolves.

After their win over Southampton, Arsenal are gearing up for a huge game this weekend as they prepare to lock horns with Manchester United. It’s a rivalry that will go on for many years to come and has been viewed as one of the biggest of the Premier League era, all the way back to the Ferguson vs Wenger days.

On Saturday, Mikel Arteta will attempt to keep the spark alive for the Gunners, as he spoke about during his pre-match press conference before the big game.

Arteta right to rely on system rather than a No.10 0

The Mesut Ozil situation continues to draw much attention when it comes to Arsenal. Manager Mikel Arteta made the decision to leave the experienced German out of his Premier League and Europa League squads, and while some believe it to have been a mistake, others make a strong case against a team relying on a classic No.10 as the main creativity source in the game today.

For the first time in nearly 15 years, Arsenal have beaten Manchester United in the Premier League at Old Trafford.

Mikel Arteta was at the heart of that victory with some really important tactical decisions, and after the full time whistle blew, he spoke with the media about his side’s biggest win of the campaign thus far.

Manchester United vs Arsenal is one of the best known rivalries in Premier League history and as we look ahead to the future, both sets of fans are hoping that the clubs can get back to the lofty heights that they enjoyed during the 90s and noughties. For now, though, their aim will simply be to solidify themselves as regular top four challengers with a busy winter ahead.

The two are set to meet at Old Trafford this weekend and while it hasn’t always been a happy hunting ground for the Gunners, they’ll be hoping that they can change their fortunes.

While everyone loves seeing Arsenal play every weekend, it can sometimes be nice to sit back and see what else is on offer whilst we wait to see what the Gunners can do on Monday Night Football. We’ve already seen a handful of intriguing games take place across the Premier League, especially including teams that Arsenal will be battling it out with in the top four race, with Manchester United and Chelsea both struggling despite late goals that helped them to pick up three points and one point respectively.

Arsenal may be playing in the UEFA Europa League this season, but the manner in which they exited this year’s competition left many wondering whether or not they’re ready to dive back in at that level – or whether it would’ve been more beneficial to have a year away from Europe. Either way, they aren’t going to feature in the last eight of the knockout tournament in Germany.
