Arsenal have opened an investigation into alleged “discriminatory and violent” behaviour of their fans on the stands of the Emirates Stadium during the Carabao Cup defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur.

The club have issued a statement to the Independent:

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Arsenal sent a scout to Roma’s recent Champions League clash with Viktoria Plzen – with the intention of watching Cengiz Under, who wound up scoring in the game. The fact that Arsenal are interested in something that we’ve all been well aware of, but it’s how persistent they seem to be which has really caught our eye.

Arsenal and Spurs charged 0

The FA have charged both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur for ‘failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion’ during the North-London Derby at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

After Jan Vertonghen handled the ball in his own penalty area, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring in the 10th minute from the penalty spot, and the undesired scenes started then and there as a Spurs supporter threw a banana skin towards the Gabonese in a clear move to make a racial insult. Spurs officials have announced an investigation and a lengthy ban for the person responsible for such a despicable act.

Unpleasant scenes at the Derby 0

It was a marvelous day for Arsenal on Sunday.

There are many fierce rivalries in football. Some develop over time between two most successful clubs in a league, but mostly they bear a strong local flavor, wherever this sport takes roots.

The North-London Derby is certainly in that category, and while Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur aren’t exactly two biggest clubs in England (they are certainly big), the bragging rights in the part of the capital north of the river are a huge deal.

As Arsenal prepare to take on their neighbours Tottenham Hotspur in what will be the first North-London Derby this season, Unai Emery spoke to the press to give a little preview.

The manager revealed how impressed he has been with Emile Smith Rowe and Joe Willock. The two youngsters were both on target in Arsenal’s Europa League win over Vorskla on Thursday in Kiev. They have been given a chance to train with the first team this season and they’ve taken it with both hands. The Vorskla game represented a big step in their development while their presence helped the team achieve a good result.

Arsenal will go in for Pepe 0

Arsenal have sounded out Lille’s Nicolas Pepe as the preferred option to replace Danny Welbeck, according to Gary Jacob of The Times.

Welbeck’s End

Welbeck suffered a broken ankle in Arsenal’s Europa League goalless draw at home against Sporting Lisbon, and he isn’t very likely to play for the club ever again. The forward has undergone two surgery procedures and his way back to the pitch is expected to be a long one, and with his current deal expiring at the end of the season, he most likely won’t be offered a new one.

On This Day In 2004: Arsenal beat Spurs in nine-goal thriller 0

Posted on November 13, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Football is always at its best when you see two bitter rivals competing against one another on derby day – and it’s even better when they’re pretty close in terms of overall quality. Case and point: Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur back in 2004. The Gunners were in the midst of arguably their greatest period in their history, and that goes for their rivalry against Spurs, too. They were quite clearly the superior team to their North London counterparts at the time, and yet, the passion and fire involved in the derby meant that their game against Spurs on November 13th, 2004 wasn’t an easy one for them.

The win over Blackpool was all well and good last night, but arguably the biggest headline of them all came during the draw for the quarter-finals as it was formally announced that Arsenal would take on bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur for a place in the final four. Any other game in this draw, perhaps barring Chelsea, would’ve been met with an ‘oh, okay’ type of reaction – but not this one. This is a special fixture and it always will be, and there are so many connotations to this one that it’s hard to keep track.

Could Arsenal be in for Bailly? 0

Posted on September 17, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to the Mirror, Arsenal are among the clubs monitoring the situation with Manchester United’s Eric Bailly.

Bailly signed for United in the summer of 2016 after a successful spell with Spanish side Villareal lasting a year and a half. Before that he played for Espanyol. He has made a total of 60 appearances for the Red Devils so far and had been praised for a while as their best defender.

However, after United’s shaky start to the season, he has fallen down the pecking order having put in a few questionable performances, and manager Jose Mourinho is now favoring the duo of Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof in the absence of Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo. Bailly’s place is currently on the bench.

United vs Spurs: good or bad result? 0

Posted on August 28, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s always somewhat fun to see two of your rivals battling it out because, for the most part, there’s no pressure on your shoulders. They’re busy doing their thing whilst you’re busy doing yours, and all you really have to worry about is what food & drink to order for when you’re watching the game. Case and point: Manchester United took on Tottenham Hotspur last night in an entertaining encounter, and we’re convinced Gunners fans would’ve been watching how things developed very, very closely.
