No Covid-19 cases at Arsenal after West Ham clash 0

Posted on September 23, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal beat West Ham United in the second round of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign by 2-1 on Saturday, courtesy of goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah, while Michail Antonio netted what ended up as mere consolation for the Hammers in an exciting contest.

West Ham have confirmed that manager David Moyes, defender Issa Diop and midfielder Josh Cullen tested positive for Covid-19 after the match. However, as revealed by The Athletic‘s David Ornstein, Arsenal continued their routine testing on Monday and received all the results on Tuesday as negative.

A look at Arsenal’s first six games of the season 0

The Premier League is set to return next weekend as the Gunners prepare to make another push for the top four – and potentially even beyond. It’s been a strong start to the season with the Community Shield win, and things are about to get even more interesting.


This is the kind of game that should be viewed as a must win, and with Fulham being a newly promoted side that are still trying to work out what their best starting XI looks like, we’re going to assume Arsenal will pick up all three points. It may not be particularly convincing, but it’ll be enough.

Arteta looks ahead to West Ham clash – part 1 0

Posted on March 06, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal were able to get back into the rhythm of picking up wins on Monday night as they went through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a nice win over Portsmouth. They desperately needed it after the disappointing loss at the hands of Olympiakos, but now, their attention must once again turn to another competition as they prepare to host West Ham United in the Premier League.

Prior to the game, Mikel Arteta spoke to the media as the Gunners attempt to keep their solid PL run going.

Arsenal linked with Adam Lallana 0

Posted on February 07, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to Liverpool Echo, Adam Lallana is set to leave Liverpool at the end of the season. That’s when his contract expires, and a decision has been reached that there wouldn’t be any talks about a new deal.

Lallana left Southampton as an attacking midfielder and joined Liverpool back in 2014, when the Merseysiders were under the command of current Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers. The current Leicester City boss deployed him in that role too, as did Jurgen Klopp upon his arrival. But as the German too charge of his first full season at the club, he changed his formation to 4-3-3 and Lallana played most of the 2016/17 as a box-to-box runner, where he was extremely efficient. He was a crucial part of the team which managed to fight their way back to the Champions League at the end of that season, at the expense of none other than Arsenal.

Aubameyang on the London Stadium comeback 0

Arsenal played a rather bleak first half against West Ham on Saturday and went to the break trailing the hosts by 1-0, albeit due to a very unfortunate deflected header from Angelo Ogbonna which caught Ainsley Maitland-Niles and cheated Bernd Leno. After the goal, the team seemed to have lost the little zest they had in them before, and even though the Hammers didn’t play all that well themselves, they seemed very comfortable in the minimal lead against the indisposed Gunners. 

However, we’ve rarely seen them turn things around the way they did in the second half. Goals from Gabriel Martinelli, Nicolas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ensured the three points moved to North London.

Ljungberg reflects on Arsenal’s win over West Ham – Part 1 0

Posted on December 10, 2019 by Harry Kettle

The panic amongst Arsenal fans has been well noted over the course of the last few months, and rightly so. They’ve been in a position whereby it’s been fairly difficult to see any kind of hope for the immediate future, with Unai Emery and now Freddie Ljungberg not really inspiring all too much hope within the club.

Some will choose to believe that’s in the process of changing this morning after Arsenal’s big win over West Ham United last night. They had to overcome some adversity but they got there in the end, and after the game, Freddie was more than happy to take questions from the media following his first win as boss.

Arsenal’s worst Premier League losses – Part 2 0

West Ham 1-0 Arsenal

Just pitiful. There was no real fight and no real desire, to the point where we were left to wonder whether or not these players even want to secure Champions League football in the first place. The Hammers were a decent side this season but their aspirations weren’t nearly as high as Arsenal’s, and worse yet, the game so quickly after the half time interval. They just seemed to switch off and when you do that at such a high level like this, you’re obviously going to be punished.

Southampton 3-2 Arsenal

Arsenal’s biggest Premier League wins – Part 1 0

Posted on May 07, 2019 by Harry Kettle

We’re getting closer and closer to the end of the Premier League season, and for Arsenal, the success of their campaign really does depend on the Europa League now. There’s still a chance they could leapfrog rivals Tottenham Hotspur and break into the top four, but realistically speaking that doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen.

The last few weeks have been pretty desperate for the club as they’ve been unable to make any major dent in the aforementioned battle for a Champions League spot. The rest of the sides around them have also been slipping up which has given them more opportunities than they probably deserved, but given how ‘easy’ their run-in seemed, being in this position heading into the final day just seems utterly unacceptable.

Arsenal 4-1 Fulham

It’s a good result, but fans were still feeling the effects of the Liverpool game – mainly because they knew they’d lost some major ground. It was an efficient attacking performance and it’s kind of difficult to get all too upset about a 4-1 win, but it was more of an ‘on to the next’ moment. Still, fair play for the efficiency.

Lack of potential signings concerning for Arsenal 0

Posted on January 12, 2019 by David Nugent

The recent news that Arsenal are not going to make any permanent signings in the January transfer window is concerning. Spanish boss Unai Emery can only do so much in training to improve players.

On his arrival in the summer, Arsenal needed to strengthen their squad to mount a challenge for a top four spot this season. Emery spent the limited budget the best he could, but in truth, his transfer kitty was more like a whip around by Premier League standards.
