Pochettino saved Torreira from further punishment 0

Posted on March 04, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

You’ve probably seen Lucas Torreira pick up a red card at the very end of the North-London Derby on Saturday for a foul on Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose. The decision from referee Anthony Taylor was, to put it mildly, ridiculous. The Uruguayan did commit a foul, and it was somewhat reckless from him, and it probably deserved a card, but certainly not a red one. There was no intention, no malice in what he did.

Torreira now faces a three-match ban because of Taylor doing a poor job, and he’s set to miss not only the crucial crunch clash with Manchester United next weekend, but also games against Newcastle and Everton.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Arsenal took on Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend in the North London derby. It was a pretty interesting game and it was certainly eventful – to the point where fans are probably going to be debating back and forth about it pretty relentlessly over the course of the next few days. We aren’t saying whether we agree with that one way or another, because there were some pretty complex and confusing decisions made throughout the course of the game. What we are saying, however, is that everyone should just let it go.

Derby Draw: Observations 0

So Arsenal drew with Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley and remain four points behind. It would hardly be a bad result for the Gunners in itself, but unfortunately Manchester United nicked a late win at home against Southampton and managed to squeeze in between, pushing Arsenal temporarily out of the top four places. Chelsea are still behind, but they will get their chance to bridge the four-point gap as they now have two games in hand; one of which they play on Sunday away to Fulham. The race for Champions League qualification is far from over with nine rounds remaining.

Against Spurs: With or without Mesut? 0

The weekend in the Premier League kicks off tomorrow at 12:30 BST, with Arsenal going over to Wembley for what promises to be a very fiery North-London Derby.

The two teams come into this clash on the back of results that could not be more different. Spurs players looked utterly dejected after getting beaten by Burnley at Turf Moor, and defeat in their so-called “title race” could be seen in their eyes after the final whistle.

Meanwhile, Arsenal properly thrashed a very decent Bournemouth team by 5-1, and in his own inimitable style, Mesut Ozil dazzled the public with a superb display.

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:

“We are aware of the alleged incident and are currently investigating.

“We do not tolerate any anti-social, discriminatory or violent behaviour at Arsenal Football Club. Anyone identified will receive a lengthy club ban and their details will be passed to the Police to commence legal proceedings.

Arsenal set to battle for Under 0

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.

Emery speaks ahead of Derby 0

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

Posted on November 21, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

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.
