Lacazette needs to return to the starting line-up 0

Posted on December 06, 2018 by David Nugent

On Wednesday night, Arsenal’s French international forward Alexandre Lacazette was once again the key to the Gunners picking up a result. The forward’s shot on goal took a deflection to give the north London team the lead in a 2-2 draw at Manchester United.

It may not have been a winning goal, but it was another big contribution from the former Lyon star to Unai Emery’s side picking up a result.

Coming off the bench again

I have to admit, I expected Lacazette to start last night’s match against United. However, Gunners boss Emery decided to start with a more cautious approach, which is understandable, as even in poor form the Red Devils are a threat at Old Trafford.

Arsenal can end their Old Trafford hoodoo on Wednesday night 0

Arsenal’s 19-game unbeaten record in all competitions faces a potential test on Wednesday night, as the Gunners visit Old Trafford to face Manchester United. Old Trafford has become something a wasteland for Arsenal teams in recent years. In fact, the Gunners have won just once in 15 games at United in all competitions. The one win was back in 2015 in the FA Cup in a 2-1 win.

Arsenal’s last Premier League victory at Old Trafford was 12 years ago. It is fair to say it is not the Gunners favourite ground to visit.

Arsenal not ruling out signing cover for Welbeck 0

According to Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi, the Gunners may need to dip into the transfer market in January to replace the injured Danny Welbeck. The England international suffered a broken ankle against Sporting Lisbon and has had two operations to fix the problem.

Not ruling signing a replacement for Welbeck

While boss Unai Emery has stated that it will give a chance to others players, including youngster Eddie Nketiah, the clubs head of football did not rule outing signing a replacement. Talking about the injury, Sanllehi told Sky Sports: “That is absolutely something unplanned,”

Aubameyang one of the most effective forwards in the Premier League 0

When Arsenal signed Gabon international striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Dortmund in January, the Gunners knew they had signed one of the most prolific forwards in the European game.

Aubameyang has not disappointed when it has come to goals for the north London club. In 28 appearances for the Gunners, the forward has scored 19 goals and produced five assists. That record is impressive by anybody’s standards.

One of the most effective in the league

When it comes to goals per minute in the Premier League this season, only Chelsea’s Eden Hazard can better the Gabon striker. Aubameyang has a ratio of a goal every 110 minutes.

Arsenal’s home encounters with Liverpool usually high scoring 0

When Liverpool visits Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening, we are all expecting a goal-scoring extravaganza. This is an idea is influenced by the fact that Arsenal and Liverpool are two of the best attacking teams in the Premier League.

That Arsenal have not exactly been great at the back this season also points to the fact that the Gunners may concede on home soil against the Reds. Liverpool have also scored at least three goals in their last five meetings with the team from north London.

Draw at Palace should not dampen positive atmosphere at Arsenal 0

Posted on October 29, 2018 by David Nugent

Everything must end and so was the case for Arsenal’s winning run of 11 games in all competitions on Sunday afternoon. The winning run ended with a 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace.

In reality, the Gunners were just seven minutes away from maintaining the winning run, only to concede the 83rd-minute equaliser through a penalty kick from Luka Milivojevic.

Must remain positive

The draw may have ended the run, but there is reasons to be positive for the Gunners. The winning run showed that the team from north London are heading in the right direction under new Spanish boss Unai Emery.

The Aubameyang tragedy 0

Posted on October 18, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, at his core, is a fantastic striker. The 29 year old has been scoring left, right and centre throughout his entire career, and now, he’s doing so for Arsenal. While he may not get the same kind of plaudits as Lacazette he’s certainly still a force to be reckoned with, and his time in the game proves that.

Alexandre Lacazette thriving once again for the Gunners 0

Posted on October 14, 2018 by David Nugent

When Alexandre Lacazette arrived at Arsenal last summer from Lyon many saw him as the top-class striker the Gunners had been missing in recent years. He arrived at the club with a reputation as a prolific goalscorer.

The French international striker made a steady if unspectacular start to life in north London. However, the big money signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the January transfer window meant that Lacazette’s place as Arsenal’s first choice striker was in doubt.

Fascinating statistic from the Fulham game 0

Posted on October 09, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal walked through Fulham at the weekend with, arguably, their most impressive performance to date this season. They put a beating on the Cottagers and while they certainly struggled at points in the first half, they managed to overcome any adversity that was put in their path – and in the end, they registered their ninth consecutive victory in all competitions.

Making history

Still, while the performance itself was great, we want to focus on one statistic in particular: Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored and assisted for Arsenal against Fulham – which is the first time in Premier League history two substitutes have scored and assisted for a team in a single game. As bizarre and specific as that may seem, we can’t help but be extremely impressed by that.

As you probably know, Arsenal ran riot at Craven Cottage on Sunday, putting five past their hosts and letting in one in return. It wasn’t, however, all that great, especially in the first half, but with a few smart and timely changes manager Unai Emery got his players firing on all cylinders. Let’s take a short look back at all the goals, including the one conceded.
