Aubameyang has a good chance of winning the Golden Boot 0

Posted on March 21, 2019 by David Nugent

The international break gives us a chance to reflect on what has happened so far this season at Arsenal. The Gunners are enjoying a promising campaign and at the heart of that campaign has been the goals of Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The former Dortmund striker has been a prolific scorer of goals since his days playing for Saint-Etienne in Ligue One. Since then he has been prolific for both Dortmund and Arsenal.

Games are played across every single day of the week (most of the time) in the Premier League throughout any given season. Teams often can’t control when or where they are going to play on any given week, and that’s just the way it is. However, sometimes, you’re forced to play on a day that is bound to cause some kind of ridicule one way or another. Case in point: in their next game Arsenal will take on Newcastle United, and it will happen on April 1st, 2019.

Denis Suarez has no future at Arsenal 0

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal’s Barcelona loanee Denis Suarez will return to the Catalan capital this summer after failing to hit the heights expected of him in north London. This will be a blow to Barcelona, who are keen to offload the midfielder.

Struggled to have an impact at Arsenal

Suarez only joined the Gunners on loan in January and was expected to thrive under boss Unai Emery, who he had previously with at Sevilla. The midfielder has shown potential in flashes at Sevilla and Villarreal.

Rivals struggles encouraging for Arsenal 0

Arsenal head into the international break in fourth place in the Premier League table. It is a good position for the Gunners to find themselves in at this stage of the season. Unai Emery’s side also has a favourable run in. One other factor that is encouraging is the fact that their nearest rivals are suddenly struggling for form in the Premier League. Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat at Everton yesterday was an unexpected bonus, especially as Maurizio Sarri’s side dominated the first half at Goodison Park.

Reported Arsenal target set to leave United this summer 0

Posted on March 14, 2019 by David Nugent

According to the Metro, reported Arsenal target Manchester United’s Eric Bailly is now surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, which means the centre-back could be on the move in the summer.

The Metro reports suggest that the United hierarchy is set to back boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a transfer kitty of around £200million in the summer. With that sort of cash, the Red Devils can afford to bring in a new centre-back with Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld once again linked with a move to the north west.

Gunners have a good chance of clinching a top-four spot 0

Arsenal victory over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon lifted the Gunners back into fourth spot in the Premier League table. The win also means that Unai Emery’s side are within touching distance of north London rivals Tottenham in the table.

Finishing above Spurs is not the main objective for Arsenal this season, finishing in the top-four is the main aim. However, if the Gunners should also finish above their arch-rivals it would be an added bonus for Unai Emery’s team.

The Ozil conundrum for Unai Emery 1

Posted on March 10, 2019 by David Nugent

When it comes to technical ability German playmaker Mesut Ozil is probably Arsenal’s best player. However, technical ability is not always enough for a player to contribute successfully to a team.

A player also has to have the right mental attributes to become a top player or a successful team player. Mesut Ozil has never developed beyond into a truly world-class player and his lack of mental strength is arguably the reason for his lack of development improvement.

Arsenal v Manchester United Premier League Preview 0

Arsenal have the chance to move back into the Premier League’s top-four when the Gunners host fourth-place Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The recent sense of optimism around the club took a slight hit on Thursday night, as Unai Emery’s side suffered a 3-1 defeat at Rennes in the last 16 of the Europa League. The Gunners have a big job on their hands turning the tie around.

Bernd Leno starting to look the part as Arsenal number one 0

Posted on March 04, 2019 by David Nugent

When German goalkeeper Bernd Leno first arrived at Arsenal from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer, there were question marks over whether he was good enough to be the Gunners long-term number one. The person that seemed to question his ability most was Arsenal boss Unai Emery, who seemed reluctant to start him ahead of veteran Petr Cech.

However, the summer signing now seems to have won over his boss and the majority of Arsenal fans too. Leno has started the last 21 Premier League games after replacing Cech at Watford as a substitute. He has not looked back since.

So Arsenal drew with Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley and remain four points behind. It would hardly be a bad result for the Gunners in itself, but unfortunately Manchester United nicked a late win at home against Southampton and managed to squeeze in between, pushing Arsenal temporarily out of the top four places. Chelsea are still behind, but they will get their chance to bridge the four-point gap as they now have two games in hand; one of which they play on Sunday away to Fulham. The race for Champions League qualification is far from over with nine rounds remaining.
