Burnley v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on May 11, 2019 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Burnley host Arsenal at Turf Moor in the final game of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

Burnley have endured a rollercoaster of a campaign. Sean Dyche’s team struggled for results at the beginning of the season, but have since moved away from the relegation zone and secured safety with relative comfort.

The Clarets have failed to win in their last three top-flight games, last time out suffering a 2-0 defeat at in-form Everton. The defeat followed on from a draw at Chelsea and a home defeat by Manchester City, so their recent fixtures have been difficult.

Gunners have a golden opportunity to win the Europa League 0

In the end, Arsenal recorded a comfortable 7-3 aggregate victory over Valencia in the semi-final of the Europa League. It was very un-Arsenal like to make it so easy. Their away form prior to the 4-2 victory at the Mestalla on Thursday night made the win all the more satisfying.

The Gunners will now face London rivals Chelsea in the final in Azerbaijan. In truth, Arsenal will now fancy their chances of winning the trophy on May 29th.

Gunners set to sell attacking midfield pair 0

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal boss Unai Emery will attempt to sell attacking midfielders Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan this summer. Both have previously been linked with exits.

However, as they are two of the highest earners at the club and funds are tight as Emery attempts to rebuild a fragile Gunners squad.

Both enjoyed mixed fortunes at Arsenal

It would be hard to say that either Ozil or Mkhitaryan have been roaring success in north London. Ozil is such a mercurial character, obviously talented. However, the biggest frustration with the playmaker is that we have seen what he can do when on form.

Gunners now need to concentrate on the Europa League 0

Arsenal have somehow snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory in the race for the Premier League top-four. The Gunners drew 1-1 with Brighton at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, a result which virtually ended Arsenal’s chances of claiming a top-four finish.

Unai Emery’s side will head into the last day of the season three points adrift of arch-rivals Tottenham in fourth-place. However, Spurs have a superior goal difference of eight, which is really not going to swing enough in the Gunners favour.

Arsenal v Brighton Premier League Preview 0

Posted on May 04, 2019 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host Brighton at the Emirates Stadium, in potentially a vital Premier League clash for both teams.

Arsenal head into this clash on the back of a 3-1 win over Valencia in the Europa League semi-final first leg. However, prior to their clash with Los Ches, the Gunners had suffered three straight defeats in the Premier League. The poor run of form has left Unai Emery’s team fifth-place in the top-flight table, two points behind fourth-place Chelsea.

The Gunners have conceded at least twice in those aforementioned top-flight defeats too, including in a 3-2 defeat against Crystal Palace in their last home league outing.

Don’t lose Premier League focus 0

Arsenal were able to return to winning ways last night as they came from behind to defeat Valencia 3-1 in their UEFA Europa League semi final first leg. To call it an important victory would be a dramatic understatement, because after three consecutive losses in which they conceded nine goals, the club was in desperate need of a lift. It goes without saying that they’re in the driving seat now as they prepare for the second leg, which they’ll be travelling over to Spain for next week.

Denis Suarez confirms the end of his season 0

Posted on April 30, 2019 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s Barcelona loanee Denis Suarez has confirmed that a groin injury will mean that he will not play again for the Gunners this season. It will also most probably mean that the midfielder will not play for Arsenal again.

Struggled to make an impact at Arsenal

Suarez has struggled to make an impact in north London since a January loan switch from Barcelona. Reportedly the Spaniard has cost the Gunners £3.2million in wages and signing-on fee, yet never started for the club. In fact, he has made just over an hour’s worth of football in the Premier League for Arsenal.

There’s just no way of getting around the fact that Arsenal have really let themselves down over the course of the last few weeks. It seemed as if the stars were aligning perfectly for them to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League, and yet, that no longer seems like it’s going to be the case. They’re still in the running but with just a few games to go it really does feel like they’ve allowed this race to slip through their fingers.

Leicester v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on April 27, 2019 by David Nugent

On Sunday lunchtime, Arsenal travels to the Midlands to face Leicester at the King Power Stadium in a potentially vital game for the Gunners.

Leicester’s recent Premier League form has been inconsistent, as the Foxes have taken just one point from games with Newcastle and last time out. Brendan Rodgers side had won their previous four league matches to keep themselves in with a chance of finishing in seventh place.

As it stands the Foxes are tenth-place in the table, three points off seventh place, which may be enough to secure Europa League qualification for next season.

Arsenal experience Groundhog Day at Wolves 0

Posted on April 25, 2019 by David Nugent

Most people are aware of the popular 1990’s movie starring Bill Murray called Groundhog Day where a grouchy, TV reporter revisits the same day over-and-over again until he changes his ways.

Arsenal fans stuck in their own Groundhog Day

Unfortunately, Arsenal fans seem to be stuck in their very own Groundhog Dog when it comes to their teams’ terrible away displays. Unfortunately, there is no signs of Arsenal changing their ways anyway soon.

The latest debacle came in a 3-1 defeat at Wolves on Wednesday night. The home side was leading 3-0 at half-time.
