On Thursday evening, Arsenal make a trip to Belarus to face BATE Borisov in the last 32 of the Europa League. The Gunners will be confident of emerging with a victory to take into the second leg of the tie.
BATE Borisov have not played competitive football since December having won the Belarus Premier League at the end of last season. Despite their achievements in domestic football, the home sides record in the Europa League is patchy, as they have won just three of their last nine matches in Europe’s secondary competition. .......Read more here.....

On Saturday afternoon, Huddersfield host Arsenal at the John Smiths Stadium, as the Gunners look to get their challenge for a top-four spot back on track.
Huddersfield are rock bottom of the Premier League table, 13 points away from safety and now destined for a return to the Championship. The Terriers are winless in 12 Premier League games, having suffered 11 defeats in the process.
The arrival of German boss Jan Siewert has done little to stop the rot, as last time out Town suffered a 5-0 defeat at Chelsea. One of the home side’s biggest problems of late has been their inability to find the net, as they have failed to score in five of their last six league games, including their last four matches. .......Read more here.....

Patrick Kluivert believes Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would be a good call to replace Luis Suarez at Barcelona, the former striker of the Catalan club revealed, speaking to Sport360.
Kluivert spent six years at Camp Nou, between 1998 and 2004, and during that time he scored 122 goals in 257 games. Suarez has already surpassed his tally and by a wide margin, despite the Uruguay international playing for Barcelona year and a half less so far, with 168 strikes in 227 appearances. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a 2-1 win over a resilient Cardiff City side at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday. Star striker Pierre Aubameyang was involved in both of the Gunners goals, scoring and also producing an assist. The Gabon international had previously been prolific with former club Dortmund and he has picked up from where he left off in the Premier League.
Involved in 21 goals this season
Aubameyang has been involved in 21 goals in the English top-flight this season, scoring 15 goals and producing assists. He has 18 goals in all competitions for the Gunners, so it is far too say he has enjoyed a productive campaign this season. .......Read more here.....

It’s always fun to take a look at where and how your top stars have been thriving. Whether it be due to hard work or raw talent, or perhaps a combination of both, it’s a real achievement to say you’ve succeeded in a division like the Premier League. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one man who truly can say that he’s had a great start to life at the Emirates, and we don’t say that lightly. .......Read more here.....

Social media can be a problem sometimes, especially in the world of football. While it allows us to gain more access to these superstars that we follow and admire on a week to week basis, there are obvious negatives that come alongside it. Of course, there are rare instances in which it’s used perfectly, and we feel like we’ve got one of those examples for you. .......Read more here.....

I have to say one of my favourite Arsenal players is French striker Alexandre Lacazette. The former Lyon striker is not the most clinical, but he always causes opposition defences problems.
Lacazette scored his seventh Premier League goal of the season in the New Year’s Day 4-1 defeat of Fulham at the Emirates Stadium.
Gunners boss Unai Emery decided to substitute the striker in the second half, a decision greeted with boos by the Arsenal faithful. The Spanish boss may have just been giving the striker a rest, but it was not a popular decision from Emery. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal have experienced an inconsistent few weeks in the Premier League. In fact, it has been the poorest period of Unai Emery’s short time in charge of the Gunners.
Defeats against Southampton and Liverpool have exposed the Gunners glaring weaknesses, particularly at the back. However, a visit of struggling Fulham to the Emirates later today should offer Arsenal the perfect chance to get back to winning ways.
A woeful away record
Fulham are currently second from bottom in the Premier League table. One factor that has not helped the Cottagers this season has been their woeful away performances. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal head to face in-form league leaders Arsenal later today. The game will be a massive test of the Gunners newfound resolve under Spanish boss Unai Emery. Liverpool are unbeaten this season in the Premier League and the Merseysiders are now six points clear at the top of the table. Jurgen Klopp’s side are truly formidable opponents at the moment.
A potential defensive crisis
Despite an improvement in form since Emery’s arrival, the Gunners defence has still looked vulnerable this season. At times, they have been lucky and probably should have conceded more goals. .......Read more here.....

Unai Emery’s starting line-up for Thursday night’s 1-0 win over Qarabag in the Europa League for the most part unremarkable. With the Gunners already qualified for the knockout stages of the group, there was little sense in Emery risking injuries to any of his star players.
However, there was one interesting inclusion in the starting line-up in the shape of French forward Alexandre Lacazette. The forward scored the only goal of the game before being substituted. .......Read more here.....
