Vitoria SC vs Arsenal – Preview 0

Posted on November 05, 2019 by Harry Kettle

There are a lot of questions that still need to be answered when it comes to Arsenal Football Club this season, and the fans are well aware of that fact – even though, in the Europa League, they continue to be one of the favourites to win the entire thing. Such is the nature of this crazy game we call football, and such is the entertainment value to be found in the Europa League.

Today, we’re going to take a look at tomorrow night’s encounter between Arsenal and Vitoria SC as the Gunners prepare to make their way over to Portugal.

Arsenal vs Vitoria SC – Preview 0

Posted on October 24, 2019 by Harry Kettle

The Europa League is set to return tonight as the Gunners are given the opportunity to extend their advantage in their group and take another step towards the knockout stage of the Europa League. Over the course of the last few years it’s been pretty standard for the club to get through this portion of the Europa League test, and it’s only really from the Round of 32 onwards that they tend to have a little bit of trouble.

The expectation is that they’re going to run through Vitoria at the Emirates, but as we’ve come to learn, expecting the unexpected from Unai Emery’s men is a much smarter way to go.

Arsenal vs Standard Liege – Preview 0

The next step for Arsenal on this rollercoaster ride of a season will take them back to the Emirates in the wake of a disappointing draw against Manchester United. The game will be contested as part of the UEFA Europa League group stage, with Arsenal going head to head with Belgian side Standard Liege.

Liege will be looking to draw confidence from what Club Brugge were able to accomplish less than 24 hours ago, as they held Real Madrid to a 2-2 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu with just 10 men. While the circumstances are quite different, there’s certainly an argument to be made that Belgian football is on the rise for the first time in a long time.

Arsenal are coming off the fact of a pretty, well, fascinating game against Watford, in which they were unable to hold on and secure the three points they desired (and desperately needed). They were 2-0 up at one stage and seemed to be in cruise control but in the end, they allowed their defensive issues to get the better of them in a massive, massive way.

The Europa League group stage is going to soon officially be upon us, and while that may fill a lot of fans with dread, we’re quite excited for it to get underway again. Regardless of what you may or may not think in regards to the competition itself, it marks a form of European football for Arsenal to compete in – and that can only be a good thing as far as we’re concerned.

The UEFA Europa League draw is going to be taking place later on today, and we’re pretty excited to see how it all unfolds. While a lot of fans may think otherwise there are absolutely no favours given in this competition, and you have to earn every single point in more ways than one. As such, there are no easy draws for Arsenal heading into the festivities this afternoon.

The expectation last night was that Arsenal would push the pace against Chelsea and really assert their authority on the game early on. All things considered, that doesn’t seem like all too much to ask for, but in the end, it quite clearly was. Chelsea defeated Arsenal 4-1 in Baku, condemning Unai Emery’s men to yet another season of Europa League football in the process. No, we aren’t joking.

Arsenal in competition – Part 2 0

Europa League (cont.)

The knockout stages wound up being much more difficult than anyone could’ve anticipated, and when we say difficult, we mean BATE Borisov and Rennes just wouldn’t lie down. They did it a really great job of holding firm and pushing Arsenal all the way, and they deserve to be applauded for that. Then, in the big games against Napoli and Valencia, the Gunners proved once again that they can mix it up with the best of them when called upon. Now, one final showdown with Chelsea awaits – and there’s no reason to believe they can’t get the job done.

We’re of the belief that Arsenal have had an interesting season, and in truth, interesting is one of the best neutral words we can think to use. We’ve said it time and time again since the Premier League campaign came to an end, but here it is again: some things were good, and some were bad. It’s not like we get off on sitting on the fence or anything, either, because in many ways we actually aren’t sitting on the fence. Quite the opposite, in fact.

We’re not all too far away from Arsenal’s Europa League final, as the club go in search of a European trophy for the first time in a long time. The Gunners have certainly been able to earn their place in Baku throughout the course of the competition, to the point where a lot of neutrals believe they are the favourites to lift the trophy. Whether that’s true or not, it doesn’t really matter – because what does matter is that the club gets the job done regardless of the expectations.
