There’s no denying the fact that Arsenal have surprised most people with a bright start to the 2018/19 Premier League season. Not many expected a winning streak such as we’re witnessing at the moment, especially after the two opening defeats. But here they are, two points off the top of the table after eight rounds, defying scepticism to the hilt.
However, sceptics aren’t likely to go away just like that, not without having a good go at dampening the spirits of anybody positively excited.
A very good example of this battle of views are contrasting opinions of two of Sky Sports’ regular contributors, Nick Wright and Paul Merson. .......Read more here.....

According to a report from Sky Sports yesterday, Everton are in advanced talks to sign Bordeaux’s highly-rated young winger Malcom for an initial fee of around £30million-plus add-ons.
There have since been conflicting reports over the Toffees bid for the youngster. Some reports suggest that the Merseysiders are not interested, while others indicate that they could advance the deal with a meeting later today.
Malcom was linked with Arsenal
Last season the Brazilian starlet was linked with a big-money move to Arsenal. Reports France indicates that Bordeaux refused to sell the youngster in January, but told him that he could move this summer if the price is right. .......Read more here.....

According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are considering re-signing Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech this summer, as current Blues number one Thibaut Courtois looks set for a move to Real Madrid.
The move would seem a strange one, but Cech was only ousted from the Chelsea team due to Courtois being such a promising and highly-rated player.
Cech is a Chelsea hero
The veteran goalkeeper is a true Chelsea hero, having spent 11 years with the Blues before making a move across the capital to join Arsenal in 2015. While he has endured mixed fortunes in north London, Cech enjoyed an incredible career at Stamford Bridge. .......Read more here.....

For those of you who don’t know who Richard Keys is, he’s the fella who was involved in the sexism scandal with Andy Gray a few years back – and since then, he’s proven himself to be about as uninspiring and out of the loop as you could ever hope to be. Alas, his recent comments on Twitter have caused quite a commotion as he took it upon himself to criticise Arsenal legend Thierry Henry for not being present at Arsene Wenger’s final home game in charge of the club. .......Read more here.....

Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and current Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri are the favourites to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, according to Sky Sports.
Wenger enjoyed a good send-off in his last home game of the season on Sunday, as the Gunners hammered Burnley. The clubs hierarchy has no doubt made moves behind the scenes to seek a quality replacement for Wenger.
Both winners at the top level
Enrique and Allegri are both proven winners at the top level of football. Barcelona won virtually every club trophy under Enrique, while Juventus have continued to dominate Serie A under Allegri. The Bianconeri also always do well in the Champions League. .......Read more here.....

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott has completed a medical and agreed personal with Everton ahead of a £20million move to Merseyside.
Former club Southampton were also reportedly interested in signing the winger. However, it seems that the 28-year-old will be plying his trade on Merseyside in the near future.
Surplus to requirements at Arsenal
There is no question that Walcott is surplus to requirements at Arsenal. The fact that he has failed to start a Premier League game this season illustrates that perfectly. He was a regular in the cup competitions in Arsene Wenger’s fringe teams. .......Read more here.....

The likes of Sky Sports are reporting that Manchester United are close to signing Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez in a deal worth £35million. However, there is also the possibility of the Red Devils using Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan as part of the deal.
The Armenian international playmaker would be a good addition to the Gunners squad, especially as the club from north London could have lost Sanchez on a free in the summer.
Mkhitaryan out of favour at United
Mkhitaryan has fallen out of favour at Manchester United. The playmaker struggled to make an impression last season in his debut campaign with the Red Devils after his big money move in the summer of 2016. .......Read more here.....

According to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, the Gunners current situation with a number of players contracts expiring in 12 months’ time is ‘an ideal situation’.
Players including Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and Santi Cazorla are all in the last 12 months of their deals with the north London club.
Obviously, the most well-publicised player on that list is Sanchez, who Wenger insists is staying at the club despite doubts over his future. The Chilean and Ozil have both turned down offers of lucrative new contracts in north London.
