Arsenal’s worst Premier League losses – Part 2 0

Posted on May 17, 2019 by Harry Kettle

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.

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.

West Ham v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on January 11, 2019 by David Nugent

In Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off, Arsenal travels to the London Stadium to face West Ham, as the Gunners look to move into the top four of the table.

The home side has enjoyed a topsy-turvy first season under veteran boss Manuel Pellegrini. The Hammers are currently tenth in the table in the group of teams all battling to be the best of the rest below the top six.

The Irons have not been in great form of late, as they have won just once in their last four outings, suffering two defeats in the process. Last time out in the Premier League, Brighton held the Hammers to a 2-2 draw at the London Stadium.

As Arsenal prepare for a London Stadium showdown with West Ham United in the early kick-off game on Saturday, some good news have finally come out of the club’s treatment room.

The back line will seem like a new one, with five of its members returned to full training. Laurent Koscielny, Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Monreal, and would you believe it, Dinos Mavropanos, have now joined the rest of the team and are in contention for the short trip to east London.

Arsenal linked with a move for Paraguayan international 0

Posted on October 07, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal have agreed a fee of around £11million with MLS outfit Atlanta United for attacking midfielder Miguel Almiron. The report suggests the 24-year-old will join the Gunners in the January transfer window.

Almiron only joined Atlanta in December of last year from Argentinian club Lanus. However, he has made a big impression in the USA top-flight. In fact, Arsenal are not the only team linked with a move for Almiron, as West Ham, Newcastle and Italian giants Inter are also reported to be showing an interest in the Paraguayan.

Mesut Ozil should be a key player for Arsenal 0

Posted on September 02, 2018 by David Nugent

Mesut Ozil seems to be a player that divides opinion amongst Arsenal fans. The playmaker missed last weekend’s 3-1 win over West Ham reportedly due to illness. However, he had been substituted in the previous game a 3-2 defeat at Chelsea.

A lot was made of his absence, with speculation that he has fallen out with Gunners boss Unai Emery, which led to his absence against West Ham. Ozil will start today’s game at Cardiff and will be hoping to produce the sort of performance that will silence his doubters.

Could Yaya Toure be heading to Arsenal? 0

Posted on August 29, 2018 by David Nugent

According to Yaya Toure’s agent, the veteran midfielder has passed a medical in London ahead of joining a mystery club. The midfielder has been a free agent since leaving Manchester City in the summer after eight trophy-laden years in Manchester.

Toure’s agent Dimitry Seluk stated on Twitter “Yaya Toure has passed a medical in London. Yaya is close to signing a new contract.”

He also later claimed that the midfielder will not be heading to West Ham or Crystal Palace. With the options now narrowed down to a few clubs. Arsenal have emerged as favourites to sign Toure at odds of 6/4. Fulham are also the same odds to sign the midfielder though.

Should Unai Emery consider dropping Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang? 2

Posted on August 27, 2018 by David Nugent

In the past, I have talked about whether French striker Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should start together for Arsenal up front as a pair. Gunners boss Emery has ruled that scenario out.

Emery’s admission means that one or the other striker will play as the lone front man for the Gunners, with maybe the other playing out wide. Aubameyang has been the chosen striker in the opening three top-flight games and he has blanked in all three games. However, in all three games, Lacazette has come on and Aubameyang has moved to the flank.
