Arsenal 6/1 to win the Europa League after mauling BATE 0

Posted on December 07, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal rounded-off their Europa League group campaign with a 6-0 hammering of Belarussian side BATE Borisov at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.

The Gunners came close to opening the scoring as early as the fifth minute. Olivier Giroud teed the ball up for Mohamed Elneny 20 yards from goal. The midfielder’s effort skidded off the surface and skimmed the outside of the post.

The visitors threatened Ospina’s goal for the first-time three minutes later, as Ivanic’s effort from around 20 yards out went just over the bar.

The future of Arsenal speedster Theo Walcott has been up for debate in recent days, but Arsene Wenger has said that the winger does have a future at the Premier League club, despite what reports have suggested.

Arsenal were downed by a savvy Manchester United side on Saturday as the league’s second-placed side left the Emirates with all three points.

The Gunners were by far and away the better side in the game as they created a huge amount of chances. However, David de Gea was in inspired form as he almost single-handedly kept the London side at bay.

On Thursday night, Arsenal plays their final group game of their Europa League campaign as they host Belarussian side BATE Borisov at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners have already qualified for the knockout stages and won Group H. However, the visitors are bottom of the group, but could still qualify for the knockout stages if results go their way in the final round of fixtures.

Arsenal heads into this game on the back of a 3-1 home defeat by Manchester United. The Gunners also lost their last Europa League game, suffering a 1-0 defeat in Germany against Koln.

Arsene Wenger has told Theo Walcott that he can leave Arsenal in the January transfer window with the forward struggling massively to break into the Premier League side this season.

Arsenal fell to a hugely disappointing defeat at the hands of Manchester United on Saturday. The 3-1 scoreline was not indicative of the way the two teams played, with Arsenal dominating from start to finish, but an inspired performance from David de Gea meant the points went home with the visitors.

Arsenal have been able to arrest their recent slump with a string of very impressive wins that has seen pressure relieved on both the team and the manager.

Wins over Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League, Everton in the Premier League and Norwich in the Carabao Cup have allowed the London side to maintain their challenges in all three competitions, while it has banished the memory of their awful 2-1 loss to Watford the week before.

The Gunners are now turning their attention to their Premier League match with Swansea, which is a must win.

Following a torrid 2-1 loss at the hands of Watford, Arsenal have managed to turn their form around as they have claimed wins against Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League, Everton in the Premier League and now Norwich in the cup.

Back Arsenal at 25/1 to record first Premier League away win this season 0

Posted on October 20, 2017 by Milos Markovic

Despite recording wins at both Europa League trips this season – at BATE and Crvena Zvezda this Thursday – Arsenal are yet to record a single away win in the Premier League.

Gunners boast a good record at Goodison with Everton winning only two of their last 10 Premier League home games against Arsenal and our trip to Liverpool couldn’t come at a better time, having in mind Everton’s early-season struggles.

Eight points after eight Premier League rounds is Everton’s worst start to a league campaign in last nine years which is a focus point that brings plenty of optimism ahead of our trip.

Is it time for Theo Walcott to leave? 0

When Arsenal return to Premier League action this weekend they will do so with an attack that is growing in confidence and influence. Arsene Wenger’s men have been improving with each passing week and they have picked up three wins in their last five games, meaning they have moved up to fifth in the league, six points behind leaders Manchester City.

The influence of the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette have seen the London side shake off an early-season wobble that threatened to almost immediately derail their campaign. Interestingly, Wenger has also overseen a very impressive improvement in his defence that has been the foundation on which Arsenal’s rejuvenation has been built.

According to the Daily Mail, Southampton are looking to re-sign Arsenal forward Theo Walcott in January. The England international joined the Gunners from the south coast club back in 2006 for a fee reported to be in the region of £10million.

However, the report suggests that the south coast club could be prepared to pay between up to £15million to re-sign their former player.

Never fulfilled his potential

At 28 years-old, Theo Walcott is almost the poster boy of Arsenal’s malaise in the decade. When he joined Arsenal, Walcott was regarded as one of the hottest young players of his generation. He was exciting, energetic and seemed destined for stardom.
