Arsenal set to lose out to Spurs for Barcelona flop 0

Posted on May 12, 2019 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal look set to miss out on signing Barcelona flop Malcom this summer, with the winger now expected to join north London rivals Tottenham instead.

The Express story claims that the youngster has chosen to join Spurs ahead of the Gunners this summer. If he does join Tottenham, he will be their first signing since Lucas Moura joined from PSG in the January transfer window of 2018.

Malcom has struggled to nail down at a starting spot with the Blaugrana, who are looking to revamp their squad this summer after more Champions League disappointment.

We continue to watch football on a week to week basis and we continue to think that we’ve seen it all – and then a game comes along that completely throws that logic out of the window. For most of us the game in question was Tuesday night, when Liverpool managed to overcome a three goal deficit to defeat Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate. However, last night’s game was almost equally as remarkable, as Tottenham came from three goals down to defeat Ajax with the final kick of the game.

English dominance in Europe once again? 0

After what we saw last night it’s kind of hard not to feel a sense of pride for English clubs in Europe again, regardless of who it is you support. When teams in England are doing well it seems to create a ripple effect, which positively impacts the Premier League as a whole (and the lower leagues). In general the top flight of English football has always been viewed as the best league in the world, but now, it really does seem like we’re starting to get confirmation of that.

Arsenal 4-2 Tottenham

A magical derby day for Arsenal who were able to overcome losing their lead, overcome the physicality of their rivals, and secure a really important win in the race for the top four. They just seemed to be firing on all cylinders during this game, and it’s hard not to think of this as one of the primary highlights of their entire campaign.

Arsenal job was never going to be easy for Unai Emery 0

We are now close to the end of Unai Emery’s first season in charge of Arsenal. The Spaniard has done a decent job. The Gunners look set to miss out on the top-four but are closer to the teams in the Champions League this season than in recent campaigns. They could even miss out on a top-four place courtesy of an inferior goal difference to Spurs.

The team from north London also have an excellent chance of making it to the final of the Europa League. The Gunners of course travel to Spain to face Valencia on Thursday night for the semi-final second leg with a 3-1 advantage from the first leg.

Arsenal’s visit to Wolves Molineux later tonight is a massive one for the Gunners when it comes to their Champions League qualification hopes this season.

A 3-2 home defeat against Crystal Palace last time out has certainly thrown a spanner in the works of the Gunners top-four challenge. Most people took for granted that that Arsenal would win the clash, including the players it seemed, such was the Gunners stellar home form.

Wolves game now even more vital

The trip to Molineux to face Wolves was always going to be a vital one. The defeat against Palace has just made the clash even more important for Unai Emery’s side. The loss against the Eagles has seen the Gunners slip out of the top-four to fifth-place.

Arsenal should not panic over Palace defeat 0

On Sunday, Arsenal suffered a shock 3-2 defeat against Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners losing is not a major surprise, as they have shown they are prone to slip-ups at unexpected times.

However, the majority of those slip-ups are away from the Emirates. The team from north London are usually strong on home soil. In fact, Unai Emery’s team had won their previous eight home games in all competitions.

A poor defensive display

It must be said that Palace produced a good display and deserve credit for their victory. It’s tough to win at the Emirates and the Eagles produced an impressive display against Emery’s team.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are looking to sign Tottenham’s Belgian centre-back Toby Alderweireld this summer. The 30-year-old will available for a fee of around £25million, the amount of his contract release clause.

Alderweireld has fallen out of favour at Arsenal’s rivals because of his refusal to sign a new deal with the club. Reports claim that Tottenham are not willing to meet the centre-backs contract demands, which has led to the defender looking for a club elsewhere.

Rivals struggles encouraging for Arsenal 0

Arsenal head into the international break in fourth place in the Premier League table. It is a good position for the Gunners to find themselves in at this stage of the season. Unai Emery’s side also has a favourable run in. One other factor that is encouraging is the fact that their nearest rivals are suddenly struggling for form in the Premier League. Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat at Everton yesterday was an unexpected bonus, especially as Maurizio Sarri’s side dominated the first half at Goodison Park.

Gunners have a good chance of clinching a top-four spot 0

Arsenal victory over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon lifted the Gunners back into fourth spot in the Premier League table. The win also means that Unai Emery’s side are within touching distance of north London rivals Tottenham in the table.

Finishing above Spurs is not the main objective for Arsenal this season, finishing in the top-four is the main aim. However, if the Gunners should also finish above their arch-rivals it would be an added bonus for Unai Emery’s team.
