Emery not happy with point 0

Posted on November 15, 2018 by Harry Kettle

“This team is very difficult to break down or to break their defensive lines and they transition very quickly. Our idea changed a little because we needed to take more risks.

“The team played with character and we had chances to draw before (we scored).”

These are the words of Unai Emery when discussing the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend, but something that was arguably even more interesting than that was the fact that he said he wasn’t happy with the result. Of course, that’s something many would’ve expected him to say, but it’s still interesting to hear.

Gunners cannot afford to let gap to fourth widen 0

Arsenal have made a bright start to life under Spanish boss Unai Emery this season. The Gunners are now unbeaten in 16 games in all competitions after a 1-1 home draw with Wolves on Sunday afternoon. The performance was a lacklustre one in truth, as the Gunners failed to produce the sort of vibrant displays they have at times this season under Emery.

Positive is they are still unbeaten

One of the main positives for the Gunners is that they have maintained the unbeaten run, which is never a bad thing. The draw was not the best result and could be seen as two points dropped, but it is a game the Gunners may have lost last season.

Arsenal survive Wolves scare 0

Heading into the Wolverhampton Wanderers game at the weekend, it almost felt as if everyone knew that something out of the ordinary was going to happen. We’d already seen Wolves take the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur to the edge, and as it turns out, the Gunners weren’t immune from that.

A poor start

The two sides met at the Emirates as Arsenal tried to keep their 15-game unbeaten run going, and while they did manage to stretch that to 16 games, they definitely took the road less travelled in order to do it. Wolves took the lead early on courtesy of a strike from Ivan Cavaleiro, and from that point on, the home fans gradually began to get more and more ‘panicked’.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host Wolves at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League, as the Gunners look to extend their recent unbeaten run.

Arsenal are now 15 games unbeaten in all competitions after Thursday’s 0-0 draw with Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League. A nine-game unbeaten run in the Premier League has left the side from north London well placed to mount a challenge for the Champions League spots this season.

The Gunners are currently fifth place in the table, just a point behind fourth-place arch-rivals Tottenham, who face Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Danny Welbeck suffers yet more bad luck with injuries 0

Some footballers seem to have terrible luck when it comes to picking up injuries. Arsenal and England forward Danny Welbeck is one of those players. On Thursday night, the forward picked up what looked like a horrible ankle injury in a 0-0 home draw with Sporting Lisbon.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery confirmed last night that Welbeck had an ankle break, which is a major blow for the 27-year-old.

Never has any luck

Welbeck just never seems to have any luck when it comes to injury. He will sustain an injury and then work hard to return to action, only for misfortune to strike again and for him to sustain yet another injury problem.

Jack Wilshere set to leave Arsenal 0

According to the Mirror, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is set to leave the Gunners on a free transfer after being told by Arsenal boss Unai Emery that he is unlikely to be a key player in his team.

Recent reports suggested that Wilshere was about to agree a new deal with the Gunners. However, it now seems he is ready to snub an offer from the north London club to leave as a free agent when his contract expires at the end of the month.

As reported by Daily Mirror, a brand new offer has been made by Arsenal to midfielder Jack Wilshere in an attempt to keep him at the Emirates. The 26-year-old has been bouncing back and forth in regards to whether or not he’s going to stay, and while we haven’t heard those words come from him directly, it’s been hinted at enough in the media to the point where it’s obvious to see he’s got a bit of a personal dilemma here.

Would Wilshere to Wolves be a bad look? 0

While it may not seem like it at times, Jack Wilshere a valuable piece of the puzzle at the Emirates. The midfielder’s work rate and passion for the club are attributes that need to be admired, even if people don’t like him as a person. Because of that, the rumours surrounding his impending departure have caused a divide amongst some fans, and this latest rumour isn’t going to do much when it comes to calming those critics who want to see him stay.

Arsenal are reportedly lining up a summer swoop for Wolverhampton Wanderers star Helder Costa.

The Gunners have joined Premier League champions in race for the £20 million-valued star who has been in impressive form for the Wolves this season.

The 23-year-old attacking midfielder netted 12 times for the Championship side and put in a string of brilliant performances. Arsenal and Chelsea have scouted the Portuguese international on a number occasion already.

And Birmingham Mail have quoted Wolves’ managing director Laurie Dalrymple who has refused to rule out the possibility of Costa leaving the Molineaux Stadium this summer.

Arsenal ‘keeper set join Wolves on-loan 0

Posted on August 11, 2015 by David Nugent

Arsenal number three ‘keeper Emiliano Martinez looks set to join Championship side Wolves on a season-long loan deal. The 23-year-old is highly-rated by the north London club, but he is being sent out to gain valuable first team experience in the second tier of English football.

The youngster is unlikely to see much first team action at the Emirates with Czech Republic international Petr Cech and Colombian number one blocking his way to the number one jersey at Arsenal.

The competition was so fierce that even former-Gunners number one Wojciech Szczesny had to leave on a season-long loan deal in attempt to play regular football this season.
