The line of six for the Arsenal job 0

The speculation about who would succeed Unai Emery as the Arsenal head coach were mounting even before the club decided to part ways with the Spaniard, and since it happened it’s gone through the roof. However, the names are always the same, always the same quartet.

Freddie Ljungberg has been appointed to the role as a temporary solution, but according to football.london, he is also the leading candidate for the permanent role. Giving the former Arsenal midfielder a proper chance would likely prove a popular decision among the club’s supporters, at least in the beginning. After that, the amount of love and support he’d be receiving from the Emirates stands would likely depend on results and performances. He has no experience in first-team management, but he knows the youth setup well and young players would certainly benefit from his appointment.

It’s safe to assume that nobody really knows what direction Arsenal Football Club are going to go in next. The expectation for this season has always been that they will challenge for the top four and may go after a trophy or two, but with Unai Emery being sacked before we even hit December, a lot of fans can be forgiven for thinking that everything is a bit up in the air now.

Pochettino leaves & Mourinho joins Tottenham 0

He was a thorn in the side of Arsenal from across London with Chelsea, and now, he’ll be much closer to home as Jose Mourinho has joined Tottenham Hotspur as the club’s new manager. The move comes in the immediate aftermath of Mauricio Pochettino receiving the sack which, in itself, was considered to be a bit of a shocker.

Mourinho will be taking on his first job since being sacked by Manchester United last year, having taken time out of the game in order to reflect on what his next move should be. Now, we know what that move is, as bizarre as it may be in the eyes of some.

Pochettino saved Torreira from further punishment 0

You’ve probably seen Lucas Torreira pick up a red card at the very end of the North-London Derby on Saturday for a foul on Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose. The decision from referee Anthony Taylor was, to put it mildly, ridiculous. The Uruguayan did commit a foul, and it was somewhat reckless from him, and it probably deserved a card, but certainly not a red one. There was no intention, no malice in what he did.

Torreira now faces a three-match ban because of Taylor doing a poor job, and he’s set to miss not only the crucial crunch clash with Manchester United next weekend, but also games against Newcastle and Everton.

I cannot see Tottenham ending Arsenal’s unbeaten run 0

With just a few hours to go before the north London derby at the Emirates between Arsenal and Tottenham, the tension is building amongst both sets of fans.

Is has become the custom in recent years, there is far more to play for than just local bragging rights. Both teams are in the fight for the top-four and it could be argued Spurs will believe they are in the title race.

It is no doubt a big game for both teams. However, I just cannot see the Gunners losing this match. I may be cursing them, but the Gunners under Unai Emery are looking like a slightly tougher nut to crack.

Arsenal v Tottenham Premier League Preview 0

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host arch-rivals Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium in what could prove to be a crucial north London derby.

Arsenal extended their recent unbeaten run to 18 matches in a 3-0 win against Vorskla in the Europa League on Thursday night. Unai Emery’s side are also now unbeaten in their last 11 top-flight games, so head into this clash in confident mood.

The Gunners have a strong home record in the Premier League, as they have lost just one of their last 12 league games at the Emirates Stadium while recording nine wins.

As we all know the first north London derby of the campaign between Arsenal and Tottenham takes place on Saturday afternoon at the Emirates Stadium.

Some fans and pundits claim that the power has shifted in north London and that Tottenham are now the biggest team in the area.

When asked if he thought so Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger told a press conference: “Not at all,”

“I think Tottenham is a good side but we have the quality to win this game and that is what we want to show.”

What has Petr Cech claimed made the big difference at Tottenham? 0

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has claimed that Premier League rivals Tottenham can thank manager Mauricio Pochettino for their rise, with the coach a huge reason behind their improvement.

Arsenal return to Premier League action on Saturday as they host Tottenham in the latest instalment of the north London derby.

Their game with Spurs has become a must win if they are to maintain their top four challenge with the inconsistent nature of the Gunners meaning that any kind of gap may become insurmountable.

Harry Kane ‘may be risked’ in the derby 0

Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane ‘may be risked’ in next weekend’s north London derby against Arsenal, according to England boss Gareth Southgate.

Kane pulled out of the Three Lions squad for international friendlies against Germany and Brazil. The striker has just returned from injury and there were suggestions in the media that the striker was not in fact injured.

However, Southgate disputed that fact by telling the media: “Harry Kane – I knew he was in trouble because he stayed down – Harry Kane doesn’t stay down.

Would any Arsenal players get into the Tottenham team? 0

Posted on April 28, 2017 by David Nugent

This weekend is, of course, the north London derby, as Arsenal visit north London rivals Tottenham in a massive Premier League clash.

As always there has been combined teams and talk of who would get into whose team. However, Sky Sports pundit and former Arsenal star Paul Merson reckons the only Arsenal player who would get into the Tottenham team is forward Alexis Sanchez.

In all honesty, it is hard to agree with Merse on this one. He can be an idiot at times, but I think he is pretty accurate in his assessment of this: Sanchez is probably the only Gunners player who would get in the Spurs team.
