Are Arsenal really up against Alexis mark II on Sunday? 1

Posted on December 18, 2014 by admin

We know that the Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez was wanted by Brendan Rodgers to fill the hole in the Liverpool attack left by the transfer of Luis Suarez to Barcelona in the summer. And we also know that the player he did sign, Mario Balotelli, has failed spectacularly to do the job.

But Rodgers has now claimed that he does have a player like our new Arsenal forward after all, in the tiny shape of Raheem Sterling. Perhaps the Anfield boss is trying to get the Gunners worried about what we will face on Sunday, but he has compared Sterling in his new role to Alexis, as reported by the Daily Express.

Stats suggest Arsenal WILL beat Liverpool 0

After suffering defeat at the hands of arch rivals Manchester United on Sunday, further pressure was mounted onto the shoulders of Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers. This was followed on Wednesday with what appeared a tricky quarter-final tie away to high flying Championship side Bournemouth in the League Cup. The Reds comfortably won 3-1 making their way into the Semi-finals to face Chelsea.

This weekend Liverpool meet an Arsenal side who are experiencing an inconsistent run of form. The North London club has won three of their last six league matches but have lost the other three. However, the stats for each of the two sides over the first 16 games of the season weigh heavily in Arsenal’s favour.

Arsenal handed TRIPLE injury boost for Liverpool clash 1

Posted on December 17, 2014 by admin

Arsenal have had an unbelievable bad run of injury problems this season and even now that they are supposedly on the wane, there is still a whole starting XI of first team Gunners out of action. The website has 10 players on their list but Abou Diaby is not one of them and we have to assume that the French midfielder is not yet fit to play.

Arsenal starting XI to face Newcastle with NO Podolski 0

Posted on December 13, 2014 by admin

After scoring the first and last goals for Arsenal in the final Champions League group game against Turkish club Galartasaray midweek, Lukas Podolski was probably thinking that he had a good chance of starting in the Premier League tday for the visit of high flying Newcastle.

But I think our German striker is set to be disappointed and the hamstring injury to Aaron Ramsey has certainly not helped his cause. It means that the Welshman will probably be replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as Arsene Wenger has very few pother options in his fit and available Gunners squad.

So why DID Wenger reveal Arsenal starting XI early? 1

Posted on December 09, 2014 by admin

With all the various problems facing Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal squad, including not having Olivier Giroud registered for the Champions League and all sorts of injuries and other players with fatigue from so many games, we already knew that the Gunners team to face Galatasaray in Istanbul tonight would be different.

So with plenty of the Arsenal first team not travelling to Turkey, including Alexis Sanchez, Kieran Gibbs, Laurent Koscielny, Danny Welbeck and Santi Cazorla, it was always going to be easier to guess what our starting line-up would be before the game.

Arsenal starting XI to face`bogey team` Stoke City 0

Posted on December 06, 2014 by admin

Arsenal seem to be a much tougher bunch this season and that is sure to get a real test today with the trip to face a Stoke City that has become a bit of a bogey team in recent years as well as the Ramsey and Shawcross situation creating a lot of bad feeling between the two sets of players and the rival fans.

But after a slow start to the Premier League campaign from the Gunners, Arsene Wenger will not be content with a point and so will want his players to take the game to Stoke, while keeping our recent solidity and giving nothing away.

MORE injury woe leaves Arsenal stretched to breaking point 0

Posted on December 05, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger should just about be able to muster up an Arsenal starting XI and a subs bench to take to the Britannia stadium to face one of our bogey clubs Stoke City tomorrow, but only just. The manager gave his latest injury update today, reported by, and there is very little good news to report.

It is now 11 months since Theo Walcott injured his anterior cruciate ligament in the win over the Spuds and he is still not available to play. He is due to have an injection to solve the slight groin problem picked up on international duty with England. The boss is hoping to have him back next weekend.

Arsenal starting XI to face Southampton – NO changes? 0

Posted on December 03, 2014 by admin

Arsenal have another chance to start putting a proper run of results together but the visit of an in form Southampton side presents a real challenge for the Gunners. It had looked like Arsene Wenger was going to have to contend with more injury problems, with both left backs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain doubts for the game, but Monreal and the Ox both trained as normal yesterday, so hopefully that will not be the case.

Sensational Arsenal target’s agent CONFIRMS transfer interest! 0

Posted on December 03, 2014 by admin

It looks like Arsenal could be heading for a bidding war in the January transfer window, as Arsene Wenger is not the only manager of a big European club that is apparently keen on the super talented 21-year old star of the Brazilian champions Cruzeiro.

Lucas Silva plays in the same position as the former Gunner and fellow Brazilian who shares his name, Gilberto Silva. And many Arsenal fans think that the departure of Gilberto in 2008 left a weakness in the Arsenal side that has never been fixed. Maybe young Lucas Silva, dubbed the new Kaka because of his all action style and ability, is the player to finally do it.

Arsenal starting XI for West Brom WITH Koscielny and Giroud 0

Posted on November 29, 2014 by admin

It is not as if the Arsenal injury problems are easing off, because Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta have both joined their team mates in the treatment room in the last couple of games, but at least Arsene Wenger has some of his squad available again.

The two French internationals Olivier Giroud and Lauren Koscielny have been sorely missed while being out of action with Tibia and ankle tendon problems respectively, buty both are back and Arsene Wenger will bring them back into the starting line up for today’s Premier League away clash with West Brom.
