As we’ve indicated time and time again, there are often things that happen outside of football that remind us about what’s important in life. As reported by BBC, another of those incidents has popped up today as a body has been found at the home of Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny over in Egypt.
While Elneny may spend a good portion of his time in North London, as you can probably imagine, he does have a house in his homeland – in Mahalla al-Kubra, which can be found around 62 miles north of Cairo. Elneny is coming off the back of the Africa Cup of Nations, which was hosted in Egypt. He had returned to the Emirates by the time this incident had occurred, as he found out over the phone about what had happened. .......Read more here.....

The fascination and intrigue surrounding the summer transfer window is all well and good when your team is bringing in a whole host of high level stars, but for Arsenal, that doesn’t really seem to be the case right now. Instead, they’re kind of struggling to make much of a dent when it comes to bringing new guys into the fold, and on the opposite end of the spectrum, they’re struggling to keep hold of some of their biggest names – if the reports are to be believed, that is. .......Read more here.....

There hasn’t been any movement in the Premier League for the last 10 days as clubs around Europe gave way to international football, but a few Arsenal-related stories have popped up these days just to give us a kind of a warm-up ahead of the final stage of the season.
Midfielder Granit Xhaka left Switzerland’s Euro 2020 qualifier after 79 minutes as coach Vladimir Petković succumbed to his request to be substituted.
“Xhaka could not stay on the pitch. He asked me ten minutes before to be replaced.” Petković explained after the game. .......Read more here.....

In the first game since veteran boss Arsene Wenger announced he would leave the club in the summer, Arsenal recorded a 4-1 win over West Ham at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal had the first attempt on goal of the game on nine minutes, as centre-back Laurent Koscielny headed wide of goal from a Granit Xhaka corner kick.
At the other end of the pitch, Portuguese midfielder Joao Mario drew a smart save from David Ospina, while Marko Arnautovic also saw a shot on goal blocked by the Gunners defence. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal drew 2-2 with CSKA Moscow at the Arena CSKA on Thursday night in the Europa League quarter-finals second leg, to win 6-3 on aggregate in the tie.
CSKA Moscow made a strong start to the game without really troubling the Gunners backline. The first real attempt on goal arrived on 21 minutes, as Bistrovich sent a long-range effort well wide of goal.
The game finally saw a real threat on goal on 27 minutes. It all stemmed from Alan Dzagoev having a shot blocked by the Gunners defence. The ball fell to Danny Welbeck to released Alexandre Lacazette. The French striker just hesitated on the ball for too long and A. Berezutski managed to block the effort. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal fans out there will be happy to know that justice has been served, as BBC Sport reports that midfielder Mohamed Elneny’s red card has been overturned following an appeal.
In what is probably one of the quickest returns from an appeal in Premier League history, the Premier League confirmed that the Egyptian’s dismissal was “wrong” for what was judged to be violent conduct. The 25-year-old was sent to a not so early shower in injury time, with the incident stemming from a confrontation with Southampton defender Cedric. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal beat Southampton 3-2 at the Emirates in their 32nd game of the Premier League season, courtesy of one goal by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a brace from Danny Welbeck to overrule goals from Shane Long and Charlie Austin for the Saints.
Welbeck and Iwobi
This duo can be fairly considered as a pair of squad players, the manager’s tools for when his preferred options are unavailable or need rest. With the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette fully fit and firing, they are hardly likely to get a look-in. .......Read more here.....

As reported by Arsenal themselves, Mohamed Elneny has officially signed a brand new contract with the club. Elneny will now remain at the Emirates Stadium for the foreseeable future, with no confirmation other than ‘long-term’ regarding the official length of the new deal.
Elneny has been a part of the Arsenal family for well over two years now and is over halfway to having made 100 appearances for the Gunners. At the age of just 25, it’s easy to see him having another half a decade or so left in him at the highest level, especially given his style of play and composure on the ball. .......Read more here.....

According to a number of reports in England, Arsenal have expressed interest in signing the in-form Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure.
The 25-year-old Frenchman has enjoyed quite a run at the Hornets which saw him top the club’s scoring charts with seven goals in the Premier League. He also recorded two assists for Javi Garcia’s charges.
Doucoure’s flying form has put plenty of top sides on alert with Arsenal and Tottenham believed to be sitting in a front row for his signature. Mauricio Pochettino has kept a close eye on the midfielder over past couple of weeks and the Argentine tactician was reportedly at Watford’s 4-1 win over Chelsea last week to watch Doucoure in action. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny has aimed a shot at Alexis Sanchez after the star joined Manchester United. The comment was made following the Gunners’ semi-final win over Chelsea in the EFL Cup semi-final.
Arsenal were able to come back from an early goal from Eden Hazard to progress to the final of the EFL Cup. Nacho Monreal saw his header take a number of deflections before it found the back of the net, before Granit Xhaka poked home to win the game for the home side. .......Read more here.....
