Tottenham v Arsenal Premier League preview 0

Posted on March 01, 2019 by David Nugent

On Saturday lunchtime, Arsenal travel to Wembley to face north London rivals Tottenham, in a potentially massive derby clash.

Tottenham are third place in the table, nine points behind league leaders Liverpool after successive defeats against Burnley and Chelsea. The defeats ended a four-match winning run in the Premier League for Mauricio Pochettino’s team. Spurs poor recent run of form means that fourth place Arsenal have close to the gap on their neighbours to four points.

The home sides recent top-flight outings have been high scoring affairs, as eight of their last 11 league outings have produced over 2.5 goals.

North London derby a big test of Arsenal’s recent form 0

Arsenal’s recent form in the Premier League has been promising. A 5-1 mauling of midtable Bournemouth on Wednesday night means the Gunners have now won five of their last six games in the Premier League.

The recent good run of form has been enough to push Unai Emery’s side into the Premier League’s top-four. However, next up is a trip to north London neighbours Tottenham on Saturday lunchtime in a potentially vital north London derby.

Tottenham tough opponents despite recent defeats

Arsenal will head into the clash at Wembley as the form team, as a 2-0 defeat at Chelsea on Wednesday night means that Mauricio Pochettino’s team have lost successive games in the Premier League.

The Premier League is a pretty fickle division, and we believe that every single fan of every single team in the league qualifies for that on some level. It’s nothing personal, but let’s face it, it’s just the truth. Every single team has their own set of fans who, for whatever reason, are never fully satisfied. With that being said, it felt like last night’s performance from Arsenal was about as close as they’re going to get to making their fanbase universally happy.

Cherries are there for the picking for Arsenal 0

Arsenal have a great opportunity this evening to consolidate their position in the top-four of the Premier League table, as the Gunners host travel sick Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium.

The Cherries are awful on their travels

Cherries boss Eddie Howe is a guy that talks sense when it comes to football. He is very honest and open about the game. These character traits are probably why he is such a well-liked boss. Some have even mentioned the promising head coach as a future Gunners boss.

Arsenal v Bournemouth Premier League Preview 0

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to maintain their place in the Premier League’s top-four.

The Gunners are currently a point above fifth-place Manchester United, while three points above sixth-place Chelsea. A 2-0 win over Southampton at the Emirates Stadium last time out means Unai Emery’s side have won four of their last five top-flight matches.

The home side has been prolific in front of goal in the Premier League, scoring at least twice in four of their last five top-flight games.

BATE Borisov v Arsenal Europa League Preview 0

Posted on February 13, 2019 by David Nugent

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.

Top four within reality – Emery 0

Arsenal manager Unai Emery believes his team can finish the season by securing a place in next season’s Champions League.

Following the Gunners’ 1-2 win away to Huddersfield on Saturday, the boss spoke about the team’s chances of playing in Europe’s elite club competition in 2019/20, something club chairman Sir Chips Keswick revealed to be of absolute priority as far as the goals of the season are concerned.

Alex Iwobi opened the scoring in the 16th minute with his well-controlled volley picking up a kind deflection and catching Ben Hamer in Huddersfield goal on the wrong foot, Alexandre Lacazette finished off a nice team move and doubled the lead just before halftime, and Sead Kolašinac gave the Terriers a brief hope with a clumsy last-minute own-goal.

Surely Arsenal won’t slip up at Huddersfield 0

Arsenal are a real Jekyll and Hyde team. At home, they are hard to beat, prolific and a formidable opposition for most teams in the top-flight. However, on their travels, they turn into this team that struggle to pick up points.

Unai Emery’s side have picked up just two points from their last six away games in the Premier League while suffering defeats in four of their five matches away from north London.

Huddersfield should be the perfect opponent

That recent away record is poor for a team claiming to have top four aspirations. However, a trip to struggling Huddersfield later today could just prove the perfect tonic for the travel sick Gunners.

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.

The importance of Huddersfield 0

Posted on February 08, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Every single game of football that Arsenal Football Club play, in a competitive sense, is important. It gives fans who may be going to their first game a chance to see the Gunners triumph, and in equal measure, it may allow for a 40-year season ticket holder to keep his passion for the club alive and well. Of course, that’s an obvious statement, but it needs to be repeated because some would argue the game at the weekend isn’t quite as important as the ones against the club’s rivals.
