Matteo Guendouzi is a rare diamond in the rough 0

Posted on February 14, 2019 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s young French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi arrived in North London from French club Lorient in the summer. The youngster arrived for a modest fee of around £7million plus add-ons, which by modern standards is chicken feed.

Although apparently highly-rated in football circles, Guendouzi was not exactly a household name prior to arrival in north London. Most Arsenal fans would have been forgiven for not knowing anything about the midfielder.

Made a promising start Arsenal career

Guendouzi has certainly proven to be one of the more impressive summer recruits this season. At times, he has shown tremendous maturity on the ball, far beyond his tender 19 years.

This week’s set of Premier League fixtures, so far, have been a little bit turbulent to say the least. We’ve been treated to some great games and some shocking results in equal measure, and Arsenal have been right in the middle of that. They’ve heavily involved in the race to secure one of the two Champions League spots in 3rd and 4th between now and the end of the season, with the (correct) assumption being that Liverpool and Manchester City probably can’t be caught at this stage.

Arsenal currently find themselves seven points behind bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League table, with both only really having their respective European competitions to fall back on if things go south domestically. That’s an interesting place for both teams to be in, especially when you consider how well they kicked off the season.

Burnley may not be easy opponents for Arsenal 0

As the dust settles on Wednesday night’s 2-0 defeat against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup quarter-final, there is little time to waste in thinking about the Arsenal’s next encounter. Unai Emery’s side has the chance to bounce in Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off against Burnley at the Emirates Stadium. On paper, it looks like an ideal game for the Gunners, but in truth, it may not be so easy.

Burnley’s recent record could be deceptive

Burnley heads to north London on the back of four defeats in their last five Premier League matches. Sean Dyche’s team are in the relegation zone and enduring a nightmare campaign.

Not hitting the panic button 0

Let’s all just calm down.

It’s unbelievably easy to get carried away in the heat of the moment and we understand that (not when it comes to throwing bottles, though, that’s just stupid). Arsenal lost 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur last night, which served as their second consecutive defeat after the loss to Southampton. Understandably a lot of fans are frustrated by this, especially because Arsenal actually played okay in the first half.

Not taking our chances was and still is always going to be the biggest issue, and we’ve seen that play out multiple times throughout the course of the season. Alas, the main problem that we have when it comes to the reaction of the loss is just how overdramatic everyone is being.

Arsenal hunt for person behind Alli incident 0

Despite how much you warn people, the emotions are seemingly always going to get the better of you at a game of football – and that’s a shame. Of course, that doesn’t go for everyone, and it only seems like a small minority of fans continue to work under this mind set. Unfortunately that small minority is still enough to cause a scene, as we’ve witnessed over the last 12 hours with outrage being sparked over an incident at the Arsenal vs Tottenham game.

Arsenal & Tottenham make a plea to the fans 0

This was always going to happen, and to be perfectly honest, we’re surprised it didn’t happen sooner. As we all know Arsenal will battle bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates tonight, with the end goal being (obviously) to progress into the final four of the Carabao Cup. However, in many ways, that isn’t the real story.

The real story is that both sides have made a plea to their fans, insisting that they don’t engage in any poor behaviour and instead choose to focus on the football itself. It’s a message that we all know not everyone is going to follow, because unfortunately, that’s the nature of the derby. It stirs up emotions in fans that they previously thought were dormant, with their 4-2 classic from earlier on in the season serving as proof of that.

Arsenal v Tottenham Carabao Cup Preview 0

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host north London rivals Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium in the last eight of the Carabao Cup.

The Gunners head into this clash on the back of a 3-2 defeat at Southampton that ended their 22-game unbeaten record in all competitions. This competition would not usually be high on the Arsenal priority list. However, the fact that the opponents are Tottenham gives this an extra edge.

Arsenal were defeated finalists in last year’s competition, as they were beaten 3-0 at Wembley by Manchester City. The Gunners will at least be looking to make it to the last four of the competition this season.

Derby come back shows Arsenal’s improvement this season 0

As we all know, Arsenal recorded a magnificent 4-2 win over arch-rivals Tottenham in the north London derby on Sunday afternoon. The derby had absolutely everything, as the two teams went at it in a highly entertaining encounter.

The Gunners resilience to come back from 2-1 down to record what could be a pivotal victory in the race for the Champions League places.

Good management by Emery

Much of the credit for the comeback must go to Gunners boss Unai Emery. The Spanish boss could see that the starting line-up he picked was not working out in the latter stages of the first half and remedied the situation at half time.

Turning a corner – part 1 0

Heading into the North London Derby at the weekend, it almost certainly felt like things were evenly balanced between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. The two clubs have had equal highs and lows in the Premier League and in Europe this season, and many fans had different theories as to how the game may or may not unfold. Now, as we prepare to look back on it all, it’s important to remember that this what how people viewed the situation.
