Arsenal’s concern at offering Ozil big money contract 0

Posted on May 02, 2017 by David Nugent

The Arsenal hierarchy are concerned about meeting Mesut Ozil’s wage demands of £300,000 a week according to the Daily Mail.

The Gunners have been worried about the German playmaker leaving the club in the summer, as his current contract of £140,000 per-week is set to expire in just over a year’s time.

However, it is being reported that Arsenal are now concerned about increasing his wages, as his performances have been poor of late.

Criticism of his displays of late

Ozil’s performances have been poor of late for the Gunners. He was virtually invisible in the north London derby defeat to Tottenham. For much of the campaign, he has struggled for any consistency.

On Sunday afternoon Tottenham host Arsenal at White Hart Lane in a north London derby that could have big implications at the top of the Premier League table.

The home side are second in the table and four points behind long-time league leaders Chelsea. However, the Blues face a tricky trip to Everton in an earlier kick-off on Sunday, so Spurs could capitalise on any slip-ups from Antonio Conte’s men.

Mauricio Pochettino’s team have been in fine form of late, having recorded eight consecutive Premier League victories. Spurs have a formidable home record in the Premier League, winning their last 12 games on home soil in the top-flight.

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.

Arsenal will look to continue their recent good run of form as they welcome arch-rivals Tottenham to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday lunchtime for the north London derby.

Arsenal continued their good run of form last time out by grabbing a last-gasp 3-2 victory over Bulgarian side Ludogorets in the Champions League. The win followed a comfortable 4-1 win at Sunderland last time out in the English top-flight.

The Gunners form has been highly impressive this season. Arsene Wenger’s side have recorded wins in 12 of their 15 games in all competitions since losing 4-3 to Liverpool in their opening game of the campaign.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that he does not believe that his team are under pressure when it comes for the Premier League title race. The Gunners are currently level with top of the table Manchester City in the table heading into Sunday’s north London derby with Tottenham.

The Gunners head into the local skirmish on the back of a 5-1 defeat at Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday night. Despite that defeat, Arsenal has won their last five top-flight games, which has put them into a good position.

Arsenal host Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium in the north London derby on Saturday looking to build on last weekend’s 3-0 win at Aston Villa.

The Gunners are unbeaten in the Premier League this season, but three of those games have finished in draws. Arsene Wenger side are currently fourth in the table, four points off league leaders Chelsea.

As per usual Arsene Wenger fielded a weakened team in Tuesday’s third round Capital One Cup game against Southampton and the Gunners suffered a 2-1 home defeat. The veteran Frenchman fielded very few first team regulars in the defeat and rested his star performers ahead of the big derby clash.

With Arsenal crashing out of the Capital One Cup in the third round, supporters desperately need convincing that the club are still going forward. The biggest test of that will be this weekend when their fierce North London rivals Tottenham come to town.

The Gunners haven’t lost at home to Spurs since 2010, and in their last 10 league meetings, Arsenal have won five and drawn one. Last season, they did the double over Tottenham, and this campaign the two clubs are having contrasting fortunes in the league.

Can Arsenal end seven-year wait for a White Hart Lane victory? 0

Arsenal travel to face fierce North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon, with Wenger’s men enduring a seven-year wait for a win in the league.

White Hart Lane hasn’t been a happy ground for the Gunners, as they’ve tasted defeat in two of their last three league meetings away to Spurs.

However, they are big favourites to end the wait for a win, as Tottenham are in awful form themselves of late, and their confidence is very low following back-to back defeats to Chelsea & Benfica.
