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

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.

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.

West Ham v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

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.
