Home record the key for Arsenal against Everton 0

Posted on February 03, 2018 by David Nugent

On Saturday evening, Arsenal host Everton in the Premier League at the Emirates Stadium. The omens are good for a home victory, as the Toffees have been easy prey for the Gunners in recent seasons.

In fact, the side from north London have won 16 of their last 20 home games in all competitions, which is a fantastic record for the Gunners against any team.

The Merseysiders have caused Arsene Wenger’s problems at Goodison Park in the reverse fixture in recent campaigns. However, on home soil, Arsenal have enjoyed close to total domination.

On Saturday evening, Arsenal will look to get back to winning ways as the Gunners welcome Everton to the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League.

Arsenal heads into Saturday’s game with the Toffees in unconvincing form of late. The Gunners have won just three of their last 11 games in the Premier League, a run that has left Arsene Wenger’s ten points behind fourth-place Chelsea.

The north London side produced a poor display last time out, as they suffered a 3-1 defeat at struggling Swansea City.

The January transfer window has been a success for Arsenal 0

The January transfer window has closed and all Arsenal’s deals are done. For me, the January transfer window has been a success for the Gunners. Too many players at the club were complacent, unhappy or just good enough.

Instead of those aforementioned players, Arsenal have brought in two players that under the right conditions could be key players for the club.

Walcott, Sanchez and Giroud sold

The fact that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has decided to allow Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud leave the club in January shows that the veteran Frenchman is determined to overhaul the team.

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.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce has confirmed that the Toffees are in talks with Arsenal over the transfer of forward Theo Walcott, reportedly worth around £20million. Allardyce also dismissed suggestions that the forward could join in a loan deal.

The former England boss said this in his pre-match press conference: “I think you are all aware of our interest in Theo,”

“If that is possible to get over the line, I would be delighted but obviously there is negotiations that are happening at the moment.

Arsenal are reportedly holding out for £30 million for winger Theo Walcott as rumours surrounding his future continue to gather pace. This huge price-tag is despite the fact Walcott has barely featured for the Premier League side this season.

Arsenal’s last league game ended in a pulsating 2-2 draw with Chelsea as the two London clubs played out one of the games of the season so far. The draw was one the fans will be largely contented with as the Gunners came very close to finishing the game with nothing.

Southampton eyeing Theo Walcott reunion 0

More than a decade after leaving his boyhood club Southampton for a move to London, Arsenal winger Theo Walcott could make an emotional return to the South coast.

The 28-year-old England international joined Saints in 2000 and spent five years playing in their youth set-up before being promoted to the first team.

A single season and only 21 league appearances – with four goals during that time – were all he got from his first-team experience with the Saints before Arsenal came calling with £12 million in their bag.

Arsenal through to the EFL Cup semi-finals 0

Arsenal recorded a 1-0 win over West Ham in the EFL Cup quarter-final on Tuesday night, with a Danny Welbeck goal enough to send the Gunners into the last four of the competition.

The opening period of the game was very lacklustre, as Arsenal passed the ball around, but to no avail. By the quarter of the hour mark, the Gunners had enjoyed 65 percent possession.

The first real threat on either goal did not come until 38 minutes. Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac cut in from the left and aimed for the far corner of the net, but the wing-back’s effort is well off target.

Paul Merson claims Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere should ask themselves ‘some serious questions’ 0

Former-Arsenal man Paul Merson has claimed that Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere should ‘ask themselves some serious questions’ despite Arsene Wenger admitting that talks with Wilshere will open over a new contract.

Arsenal were held to a hugely disappointing draw by struggling West Ham in the week which followed a 1-1 tie with Southampton, with both games showcasing just how toothless the Gunners can be when they are at their worst.

Should Arsenal field first-team stars in the Europa League? 1

Arsenal coasted into the knockout stages of the Europa League On Thursday night. In reality, the Gunners were a cut above the teams in their group. Arsene Wenger could afford to field weakened teams full of fringe and young players,

The fringe players were good enough to negotiate games against the likes of Koln, Red Star Belgrade and BATE Borisov. The likes of Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshere have impressed in the group stages.
