Chelsea v Arsenal League Cup semi-final preview 0

Posted on January 09, 2018 by David Nugent

On Wednesday night, Arsenal travel to London rivals Chelsea for the League Cup semi-final first leg.

Chelsea will be hoping to gain the initiative in this tie in the first leg at Stamford Bridge. The Blues clashed with Arsenal just last week, in a game that ended 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium.

Since then Antonio Conte’s side produced a rather listless display at Norwich on Sunday in the FA Cup third round and were held to a goalless draw by the Canaries. However, Blues boss Conte had rotated his squad in order for his star players to be fit for this clash.

Arsenal to send Krystian Bielik on loan 0

London club Arsenal are prepared to let promising defender Krystian Bielik on loan during the winter transfer window, English media have reported.

The 19-year-old joined Gunners from Legia Warsaw in 2015 for a fee around £2.5 million but has yet to make a Premier League appearance for the Arsenal first team. Bielik did, however, managed two cup appearances for the club.

The Polish centre-back who can also fill in a defensive midfielder role spent the second part of the last season on loan at Birmingham City and is once again set to be shipped out during winter with Arsene Wenger keen to aid his development by allowing him to gain regular first-team football away from the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal 6/1 to win the Carabao Cup after Nketiah brace against Norwich 0

Arsenal seemingly did not want to make it through their Carabao Cup tie against Norwich on Tuesday night. For much of the game, Arsenal struggled to break down the Canaries. The Championship side also enjoyed some good spells during the 90 minutes.

With the likes of Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere failing to make the breakthrough it fell to 18-year-old substitute Eddie Nketiah to be the hero. The striker making his home debut rescued the north London side with an equaliser five minutes from time.

Arsenal had young substitute Eddie Nketiah to thank for progression past Norwich in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup, as the youngster scored twice to seal a 2-1 extra-time win for the Gunners.

The first attempt on goal arrived on six minutes, as Olivier Giroud looped a header straight into the hands of Gunn’s arms. Arsenal started to assert themselves on the game and on the 15th minute the Gunners had an effort on goal, as Alex Iwobi fired over the bar from 25 yards out.

Arsenal vs Norwich: Grab 18/1 on Gunners to Win 0

Arsenal will be extremely keen to go all the way in the EFL Cup now known as the Carabao Cup as it remains the only piece of domestic piece of silverware Arsene Wenger is yet to add to his trophy cabinet.

Gunners look well positioned to go a long way in this competition and will be keen to keep the momentum going after the 5-2 demolition of Everton at Goodison last time out.

Spirits are high in the Arsenal camp ahead of the Norwich test this week, but the Championship side are also motivated heading into the high-profile clash as they recorded a major win in the ‘Old Firm’ derby against Ipswich last weekend.

Arsenal host Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup fourth round, as the Gunners look to avoid a potential banana skin.

The north London side head into the clash in good spirits after a 5-2 win at Everton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. The win came on the back of unconvincing performances and results against Watford and Crvena Zvezda.

Despite some disappointing displays of late, the Gunners have a very good home record at the Emirates Stadium. In fact, Arsene Wenger’s side have won their last 11 competitive games on home soil.

Arsenal still lacking cutting edge 0

I have to say watching Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Norwich on Saturday there was a feeling that the Canaries could have equalised at any second, just like Crystal Palace did recently at the Emirates Stadium.

Lacking cutting edge going forward

The Gunners failed to really take the game by the scruff of the neck with the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez having off-days, which happened far too often in recent months.

Sanchez illustrated his feelings when he was substituted near the end, as Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger decided to put on the more defensive minded Francis Coquelin on the pitch. The fact that Wenger had to put on an extra defensive midfielder at point was a joke.

Arsenal record a narrow win over Norwich 0

Arsenal recorded a narrow 1-0 win over Norwich on Saturday in the Emirates Stadium, as substitute Danny Welbeck scored the only goal of the game.

Norwich had the first attempt on goal on six minutes, as winger Nathan Redmond fired a shot on goal, only for Petr Cech to produce a smart save. On eight minutes the Canaries centre-back Sebastian Bassong headed wide of goal.

On ten minutes Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi showed good feet to get into the box and fire a cross across the face of goal. On 20 minutes Alexis Sanchez saw a shot from inside the penalty area deflect towards goal and cleared by the Norwich defence before Olivier Giroud could reach the rebound.

Arsenal v Norwich Premier League Preview 0

Posted on April 29, 2016 by David Nugent

Arsenal hosts Norwich at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday looking to move closer to secure a top four finish this season.

Arsenal will be looking to gain ground on the teams above them in the Premier League and stave off the threat of the teams behind them in table. Fifth-place Manchester United are now five points behind the Gunners in the table.

Arsene Wenger’s team are currently unbeaten in seven games, but three of those games have been draws, so the side from north London are now in danger of missing out on the top four. However, a win in this clash would see the Gunners take a big step towards sealing a Champions League spot for next season.

Arsenal should scrape top four but it’s not enough 0

Arsenal are once again in a fight for a top-four spot, despite being comfortable placed in the Champions League positions for most of the season and also previously being title challengers.

The Gunners are five points clear of fifth-place Manchester United. Louis van Gaal’s men have a game in-hand, but Arsene Wenger’s side have home games against Norwich and Aston Villa to come before the end of the campaign.

History repeating itself
