Arsenal should not panic over Palace defeat 0

Posted on April 22, 2019 by David Nugent

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.

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.

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.

Arsenal 2-0 Southampton

Professional and efficient. Arsenal secured a pretty comfortable win over Southampton, which is what you’d expect from a fixture like this. Mesut Ozil showcased his return to form, and the starting XI just seemed to click in all the right places. With the top four race being as tight as it is you can’t really afford too many major slip ups, so this result was a welcome relief. You could argue that they probably could’ve been a little bit more clinical, but at least the three points were put on the board.

Draw at Tottenham may turn out to be a good result 0

As we all know, Arsenal drew 1-1 with north London rivals Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday lunchtime in an eventful clash.

For all the disappointment at not winning the game due to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s last gasp penalty miss and referee Anthony Taylor’s often poor decisions, a draw against Tottenham may not turn out to be the worse result in the world for Arsenal.

Not a great performance

In truth, Arsenal did not produce a great display at the national stadium. In fact, if Tottenham had not been so flat and produced a better performance the Gunners may have suffered a familiar result at Wembley.

As we all know, Arsenal face a potentially tough trip to Tottenham on Saturday lunchtime. The Gunners have the chance to move within a point of their north London rivals in the race for Champions League spots. The game could be a pivotal moment in the season for both teams. We all know about the Gunners poor away record and record their top six rivals. However, this game looks like one that could improve both.

Unai Emery needs to get his tactics right

Already some have questioned Arsenal boss Unai Emery’s tactics since his arrival in north London. However, if he masterminds a win at Spurs, then it would prove to his critics that he does have good tactical acumen.

On Saturday lunchtime, Arsenal travel to Wembley to face north London rivals Tottenham, in a potentially massive derby clash.

The defeats ended a four-match winning run in the Premier League for Mauricio Pochettino’s team. Spurs poor recent run of form means that fourth place Arsenal have close to the gap on their neighbours to four points.

The home sides recent top-flight outings have been high scoring affairs, as eight of their last 11 league outings have produced over 2.5 goals.

Arguably the biggest game of the season so far is coming up for Arsenal this weekend, and we don’t say that lightly. The Gunners will be going toe to toe with North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, in a game that could have huge implications for the top four race this season. Both teams will consider finishing in the Champions League spots to be their main priority, with their European aspirations being considered realistic – although not quite as likely.

North London derby a big test of Arsenal’s recent form 0

Posted on February 28, 2019 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s recent form in the Premier League has been promising. A 5-1 mauling of midtable Bournemouth on Wednesday night means the Gunners have now won five of their last six games in the Premier League.

The recent good run of form has been enough to push Unai Emery’s side into the Premier League’s top-four. However, next up is a trip to north London neighbours Tottenham on Saturday lunchtime in a potentially vital north London derby.

Tottenham tough opponents despite recent defeats

Arsenal will head into the clash at Wembley as the form team, as a 2-0 defeat at Chelsea on Wednesday night means that Mauricio Pochettino’s team have lost successive games in the Premier League.
