Arsenal are set to resume the Premier League season when they take on Newcastle United at the Emirates on Sunday, following the winter break which reportedly did the team a lot of good. Be that as it may, head coach Mikel Arteta spoke to the press ahead of the game and provided some updates on the situation with injured players.
Left-back Kieran Tierney, who hurt his shoulder by falling awkwardly in the West Ham clash back in December, has been ruled out and will likely need a few weeks more. It was confirmed that he was back in training in Dubai, but it was restricted to strictly non-contact work which obviously means his shoulder is still too sensitive for him to play. .......Read more here.....

Having humiliated quite a few of them in his day, former Brazil star Rivaldo probably knows a thing or two about defenders. And let’s face it, a positive opinion on an Arsenal defender has been a rare occurrence in the last several years.
Nonetheless, the 47-year-old 2002 World Cup winner believes Pablo Mari will be a good fit at Arsenal and won’t have too much trouble getting used to the ways of the Premier League. As he revealed to the Evening Standard, Rivaldo is of the opinion that though he struggled to make an impact in Europe as a Manchester City loanee at Girona, NAC Breda and Deportivo La Coruna, he displayed fine defensive quality playing for Flamengo in Brazil. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal have officially confirmed that defender Pablo Mari is set to arrive on loan for the rest of the season.
It has been a funny one, this story. The Spaniard was in London for talks over the weekend, after which he went back to Brazil. Some media outlets, Daily Mail being the ring-leader here, jumped to the conclusion that he went back disappointed and that the whole deal was now in great danger of collapsing. Others, meanwhile, maintained that his return to Brazil was always a part of his schedule, regardless of how the talks went and that it meant nothing. And fortunately, it turns out the latter were right. .......Read more here.....

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown believes the Gunners have a lot left to fight for this season.
For those of you who don’t remember, Keown started his professional career with Arsenal back in 1984, being 18 years old. Two years later he was sold to Aston Villa, and later to Everton. He returned to the club in 1993 and remained here for 11 years, making a total of 310 appearances and winning 10 major trophies in the Arsenal shirt in all competitions in that time. He was a no-nonsense sort of centre-back, very strong physically, who often left opposing attackers bruised and in pain. .......Read more here.....

You’ve probably heard that Arsenal were very close to completing the signing of Pablo Mari from Flamengo on loan, and you may have hear that the deal has collapsed. Now stories are appearing that it is very much alive and kicking, and that it has never been in danger of collapsing.
The 26-year-old arrived to London over the weekend to discuss the move, and returned afterwards to Brazil. This is the point up to which all reports are in agreement, but also where they start heading their separate ways. .......Read more here.....
