Arteta reacts to dominant West Brom win 0

Posted on January 03, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Don’t look now, but Arsenal have registered three consecutive wins in the Premier League. It’s been a tough, tough journey to get to this point but after talks of a change at the top just a few weeks ago, the Gunners are now in a position of strength heading into the rest of January.

They may not go on to qualify for a place in Europe and they may still struggle to break into the top half come the end of the season, but manager Mikel Arteta will just be happy to see his side win a few games.

Arsenal are expected to run through West Bromwich Albion and take their current winning streak in the Premier League to three games, but as we all know, the Gunners have a tendency to slip up when we least expect it. They’ve got the players necessary to cause the Baggies some real damage, but they’re still missing a few key names who could really help to steady things out – both at the back and in an attacking sense.

Courtesy of Arsenal.com, we have the latest updates with regards to team news as we prepare for what can probably no longer be described as a relegation six-pointer.

Arsenal have been able to piece together back to back wins in the Premier League for the first time in what feels forever, and this weekend, they’ll attempt to take it a step further when they make the trip up to the Midlands to take on struggling West Bromwich Albion.

The season isn’t going to be defined by whether or not the Gunners are able to win this game, but as noted by Mikel Arteta during his pre-match press conference, it’s certainly important for the club to try and build up some momentum to kickstart 2021.

It’s time to take another trip down memory lane, and this time, we’re looking at something a little bit more positive – which is nice, seeing as things are also going quite well for the Gunners in the present day. Three years ago, Arsenal defeated West Bromwich Albion 4-1 in a convincing final day performance to ensure that they would automatically qualify for the UEFA Champions League group stages, as opposed to going through the playoff round.

It’s time to take yet another trip down memory lane as we look back to a game two years ago today involving Arsenal and West Bromwich Albion. It was the season in which Leicester City were taking the Premier League by storm, and as a result, the Gunners should’ve had a realistic chance of winning their first English title in years – but it wasn’t to be.

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis spoke out about Arsenal’s failed bid for Northern Ireland centre-back Jonny Evans, admitted the Gunners didn’t meet the defender’s asking price last summer, reports the Express.

“If Arsenal or Man City had met the valuation it could’ve been different. He has to get his head down and get on with it. I hope we can offer him a new contract and tie him down, we will speak next week about what Jonny is thinking and what he wants to do,” said the 59-year-old.

According to the Telegraph, Arsenal have joined Manchester City and Leicester City in the race to sign West Bromwich Albion centre-back Jonny Evans. The 29-year-old was reported to be a target for the Gunners 12 months but Arsenal failed in their pursuit to procure his signature.

However, they stand a chance of bringing the former Manchester United defender to the Emirates Stadium for the right price. Arsenal are desperate for a centre-back this summer, with Gabriel Paulista being sold to Valencia, while Shkodran Mustafi could be on his way to the Italian Serie A.

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis revealed Arsenal an approach for Manchester City-target Jonny Evans 12 months ago. “He had a chance to go to Arsenal last year. It didn’t affect him in any way,” said Pulis, reports the Express.

“You could say Manchester City are different because they will be hoping to win the title, the Champions league, and the FA Cup. It is difficult. We don’t want to sell him, or need to sell him, we are not desperate to get the money in, so it would have to be a very, very good offer. Then we would sit down and talk to Jonny about the situation,” he added.

Gibbs nearing Arsenal exit after Emirates Cup snub 0

Posted on July 28, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs looks set to leave the club this summer after being left out of the squad for the Emirates Cup, reports The Sun. The England international has been linked with a move to Watford, West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United and was previously left out of the pre-season tour as he negotiated his exit.

There’s been little progress since. West Bromwich Albion have pulled out of the deal, while Watford and Newcastle United aren’t keen to meet Arsenal’s £15m asking price. Gibbs has hardly featured for the Gunners in the last 12 months, making just eight Premier League starts in 2016/17. His contract is up next summer so Arsenal are running out of time to get value from the left-back.

According to the Mirror, Arsenanl’s long-serving defender Kieran Gibbs is a transfer target for West Bromwich Albion this summer as manager Tony Pulis looks to address the balance in the defence ahead of the news season. The Baggies have been playing the right-foot Nyom at left-back all campaign and have been targeting more natural full-backs as a result.

West Brom were in bid for Jeffrey Schlupp before he joined Crystal Palace from Leicester City in the last season, while Leeds United’s Charlie Taylor was believed to be on Pulis’ wishlist too. But the club have stumbled upon Gibbs at Arsenal, a highly experience player with just 12 months on his current deal at the club and seeking more first-team opportunities in the Premier League.
