Arsenal not breaking away from the Premier League 0

Posted on November 17, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal will not break away from the English Premier League, despite showing an interest in joining a European Super League in the near future.

News that discussions over a 16-team Super League were in the pipeline has raised many questions. German football magazine Der Spiegel had claimed that English clubs, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal were all set to sign up for the aforementioned Super League.

Any formation of the reported European Super League would seriously interfere with the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League.

Arsenal 1-1 Wolves: Emery shows in-game tactical boldness 0

Arsenal had linked a string of 15 games without suffering defeat going into the Premier League game against Wolverhampton Wanderers, and thanks to a timely reaction from manager Unai Emery and a bit of luck, they’ve now made it 16.

Like several other so-called ‘lesser’ teams, Wolves have had a surprisingly good campaign so far. They sit in 12th place, well above the relegation zone, which is always a good achievement for a newly promoted club. Quite apart from that, they are the only team alongside Liverpool to have stopped title holders Manchester City from taking all three points from them in the first 12 rounds. It is by no means a disaster to struggle somewhat against the very good team put together by manager Nuno Espírito Santo.

Arsenal survive Wolves scare 0

Heading into the Wolverhampton Wanderers game at the weekend, it almost felt as if everyone knew that something out of the ordinary was going to happen. We’d already seen Wolves take the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur to the edge, and as it turns out, the Gunners weren’t immune from that.

A poor start

The two sides met at the Emirates as Arsenal tried to keep their 15-game unbeaten run going, and while they did manage to stretch that to 16 games, they definitely took the road less travelled in order to do it. Wolves took the lead early on courtesy of a strike from Ivan Cavaleiro, and from that point on, the home fans gradually began to get more and more ‘panicked’.

Arsenal v Wolves Premier League Preview 0

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host Wolves at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League, as the Gunners look to extend their recent unbeaten run.

Arsenal are now 15 games unbeaten in all competitions after Thursday’s 0-0 draw with Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League. A nine-game unbeaten run in the Premier League has left the side from north London well placed to mount a challenge for the Champions League spots this season.

The Gunners are currently fifth place in the table, just a point behind fourth-place arch-rivals Tottenham, who face Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Torreira flattered by Vieira comparisons 0

Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira has made a strong start to his Arsenal career and is fast becoming a favourite amongst the fans. The midfielder’s enthusiasm and tenacious approach have caught the eye in his appearances for the Gunners since his summer switch from Sampdoria.

Flattered by comparisons to Arsenal great

In fact, his performances have seen some fans compare the South American to Arsenal great Patrick Vieira. Talking about the comparison, Torreira told Sky Sports: “If the fans are comparing me and my game to Patrick Vieira, that’s amazing. It makes me very proud but I need to grow a bit before I can be as tall as him!”

The next six – Part 1 0

It may not be the most popular of viewpoints or anything like that, but we need to keep looking ahead to the future at the risk of being left behind – and yes, we’re referring to Arsenal. The Gunners have had a phenomenal start to the campaign, yes, but there also needs to be some kind of perspective in regards to just how unforgiving English (and European) football can be. Whatever the case is, we’re just here to enjoy the ride, although we’d also like to take a quick glance at all six of the club’s next games in order to see what they’re up against.

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

Posted on November 05, 2018 by David Nugent

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.

Positives to take from the draw with Liverpool 0

Posted on November 04, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal may not have beaten Liverpool on Saturday evening, but there are plenty of positives to take from the 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium. It was certainly not a terrible display by the Gunners by any stretch of the imagination.

Positive from Emery

One was the fact that Emery made some risky substitutes, which played a part in the Gunners 82nd-minute equaliser.

The Spaniard decided to send on forward Danny Welbeck in place of left-back Sead Kolasinac. The move saw Nigerian international winger Alex Iwobi move to full-back to replace the Bosnian international.

Draw a fair result against Liverpool 0

Arsenal drew 1-1 at the Emirates against Liverpool in the 11th round of this season’s Premier League. As expected, the game was a thrilling one, with the ball quickly moving from one end of the pitch to the other for the entire 90+ minutes and James Milner and Alexandre Lacazette on target.

The Gunners, who have probably been the surprise of the season so far given they’re still in a transition period, came strong into the contest. They dominated possession and definitely had more control of the electric flow of the contest.

Arsenal’s home encounters with Liverpool usually high scoring 0

Posted on November 03, 2018 by David Nugent

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.
