Arsenal v Huddersfield Premier League Preview 0

Posted on December 07, 2018 by David Nugent

On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal will be confident of continuing their 20-game unbeaten run in all competitions, as the Gunners host struggling Huddersfield at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners continued their recent promising form by recording a 2-2 draw at Manchester United. United may be unconvincing form, but they still have a good record at Old Trafford, so it may be considered a decent result with time.

Arsenal have had a habit of drawing league games of late, though, as the team from north London have drawn four of their last six games in the Premier League.

Lacazette needs to return to the starting line-up 0

On Wednesday night, Arsenal’s French international forward Alexandre Lacazette was once again the key to the Gunners picking up a result. The forward’s shot on goal took a deflection to give the north London team the lead in a 2-2 draw at Manchester United.

It may not have been a winning goal, but it was another big contribution from the former Lyon star to Unai Emery’s side picking up a result.

Coming off the bench again

I have to admit, I expected Lacazette to start last night’s match against United. However, Gunners boss Emery decided to start with a more cautious approach, which is understandable, as even in poor form the Red Devils are a threat at Old Trafford.

Arsenal drew 2-2 against Manchester United on Wednesday evening at Old Trafford in the 15th round of this season’s Premier League roller coaster, adding game number 20 to their truly impressive unbeaten run. The Gunners led twice, but the home team managed to pull level both times. Shkodran Mustafi gave Arsenal the lead in the 26th minute only to have to cancelled out by Anthony Martial just four minutes later, and the hope for victory briefly reignited by Alexandre Lacazette in the 68th minute was dashed by Jesse Lingard after 60 seconds.

Arsenal’s 19-game unbeaten record in all competitions faces a potential test on Wednesday night, as the Gunners visit Old Trafford to face Manchester United. Old Trafford has become something a wasteland for Arsenal teams in recent years. In fact, the Gunners have won just once in 15 games at United in all competitions. The one win was back in 2015 in the FA Cup in a 2-1 win.

Arsenal’s last Premier League victory at Old Trafford was 12 years ago. It is fair to say it is not the Gunners favourite ground to visit.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal put their long unbeaten run to test as they visit Manchester United’s Old Trafford in the Premier League.

Manchester United have been highly inconsistent of late in the top-flight. In fact, the Red Devils have failed to win in their last three Premier League outings. Last time out the home side had to come back from two goals down to claim a 2-2 draw with Southampton.

United’s poor form has left them eight points off the pace in the fight for the top four spots in the Premier League. The men from Manchester have at least maintained a decent recent league record at Old Trafford, winning five of their last eight league outings at home.

The Sanchez dilemma 0

When Alexis Sanchez left Arsenal Football Club, the reaction from many fans was relief. That sounds a little bit harsh but we all know it to be true, because we all just wanted the saga to be over and done with. Of course, there was also an element of fear and trepidation, because we knew that the Chilean was their best player and there are no two ways around that. Now that he’s spent almost a year at Old Trafford, though, it’s interesting to look back and reflect on what could’ve been.

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal and London rivals Chelsea are both interested in signing Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira in the January transfer window.

The report claims that the Red Devils are set to cash in on the Brazilian international, as his contract expires next summer. United have an option to extend the deal by a year, but reportedly favour selling Pereira in January.

Not yet fulfilled his potential at United

When Pereira joined United in 2014 from PSV Eindhoven, he was regarded as a bright young prospect. In fact, at the time he was considered one of the most talented youngsters in the European game.

Is Eric Bailly really a solution to the Gunners defensive vulnerability? 1

Posted on November 18, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, among other publications, Arsenal are set to battle it out with north London rivals Tottenham for the signature of Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly in the January transfer window.

The Ivorian’s future at Old Trafford is in doubt after failing to start in the Premier League for the Red Devils since gameweek two of the campaign. Reportedly, the defender is set for talks with United over his future.

Promising start but has struggled of late

Bailly looked like the real deal in his debut campaign at United after joining the Red Devils from Villarreal in the summer of 2016. He looked strong and pacey, which are two attributes needed to be a top centre-back.

It’s natural to see and hear about all different kinds of rumours that are floating around regarding transfers, especially with the January window being right around the corner. Arsenal aren’t exactly immune to that and as much as we want to focus on what’s happening on the pitch as opposed to off of it, we all know that it’s kind of impossible to do so.

Arsenal and Tottenham in a battle for United star 0

According to the Guardian, Arsenal and Tottenham are in a transfer battle to land Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly in the January transfer window.

Both clubs are looking to strengthen at the heart of their defences, for different reasons. It seems that Bailly has become a prime target for the north London pair.

Endured mixed fortunes at United

When Bailly arrived at United in 2016 from Villarreal for a fee of around £30million, the Ivory Coast international was seen as the answer to the Red Devils central defensive problems.
