Arsenal starting XI for Man City with NO Ozil or Walcott 1

Posted on January 18, 2015 by admin

The Arsenal boss all of a sudden has a different sort of problem on his hands, but it is the sort of problem he would have loved to be struggling with all season, tough decisions about which players from a strong squad to put in the starting line-up.

With Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott, Laurent Koscielny, Kieran Gibbs and Calum Chambers all back in contention, Arsene Wenger has some big calls today and one of the biggest is on our club record signing. In another game I think the boss would have brought our German midfielder back in, but away to Man City is too big a game to risk a rusty Ozil, especially when the players he might replace are doing so well.

Walcott believes Arsenal’s pace is TOO MUCH for Man City 0

One of the major attributes in the game of the Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott over the years has been his blistering pace. In fact, in his early years Walcott was heavily criticised for being all about the pace, about the pace, no treble (sorry).

But he has really worked on the rest of his game and improved his finishing so those critics, like Alan Hansen, have been proved wrong. But his pace is still one of his biggest dangers, although now the Gunners have more than just him who is able to blow the opposing players away with their speed.

Arsenal need MORE than 3 points! We need BIG win!! 0

Of course it is absolutely vital for Arsenal to get a home win over the visitors Stoke City today. We have a great chance to go above our north London rivals Tottenham in the Premier League table and level on points with fourth placed Southampton.

And with our next EPL game being away to the current champions Manchester City, it is even more important for the Gunners to make the most of today’s very winnable game at the Emirates. But I do not want us to be just falling over the line at the final whistle.

Arsenal Finally Have Ozil Back – But Should He Start Against Stoke? 0

Finally, Arsenal’s record signing Mesut Ozil is back in contention for a start after recovering from a knee injury he suffered just prior to the last international break. But while the German international was on the sidelines, Santi Cazorla has undoubtedly fluorished in the Number 10 role and has shown the form that made him such a sensation during his first season in English football.

Second string Arsenal to overcome weakened Hull? 0

Posted on January 04, 2015 by admin

Both managers have made a number of changes to their starting line-ups from new years day, but Arsenal look much the stronger after Steve Brice made a massive 10 compared to Arsene Wenger’s five. And you would expect our fringe players, like Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal and Joel Campbell to have too much quality for the visitors Hull City.

The major talking point for Arsenal fans is the first start in a year for our England international star Theo Walcott. The speedy forward will join Campbell and Alexis in a very pacy looking Arsenal attack, with the skills of Cazorla and Rosicky behind them.

Is Rosicky set to be Arsenal’s secret weapon today? 1

Posted on January 04, 2015 by Patrick

The Czech midfielder Thomas Rosicky has only recently started playing for the Arsenal first team this season, but he has already shown his quality with some top performances and an important goal against QPR. Thomas may be 34 years old but Mikel Arteta believes that he is extremely under-rated and has been ever since Mikel first joined the club three and a half seasons ago.

“Within a week of joining Arsenal, watching Tomas train and having him play alongside me, I knew he was one of the most underrated players,” Arteta said in the official website. “It’s hard to find players like Tomas who can be that clever and do things so simply and lively on the pitch.

Wenger – Arsenal are aiming to keep the FA Cup this season 0

Posted on January 04, 2015 by Patrick

Arsene Wenger was very relieved that Arsenal won their first trophy for ten years by beating Hull City in the FA Cup Final last May, and he is keen to retain the trophy this time around.

But this time we have to face the same opponent in the Third round so we certainly hope that we are not subjected to the pressure of being 2-0 down early on in the game as we were at Wembley.

Szczesny confident of Arsenal win at Southampton 0

Posted on December 30, 2014 by Patrick

Three games in seven days over the Xmas period, including two of them away at our direct rivals for Fourth Place, was always going to be a tall order for the depleted Arsenal squad, but with just one game left we are still on target.

Wojciech Szczesny has revealed that nine points was always Arsenal’s target and he is confident we will finish the job at Southampton on Thursday. “When you start the season you always want to win the championship,” the Polish keeper said. “That is the only thought in our heads. But with the position that we are in, we have to look at short-term goals.

There’s NO top four pressure on Arsenal says Wenger 0

Posted on December 28, 2014 by admin

Despite Arsenal having struggled with injury problems and form in the first half of the season, a win today in the Premier League away clash with West Ham would see the Gunners move above our opponents into the top four of the table and maybe even go into third place, depending on how Southampton fare against Chelsea.

But Arsene Wenger knows that his team faces a hard game against an in form team that has won six and drawn one of their last seven home games. So he is not putting any pressure on his players. In fact, even though our north London rivals are only behind us in the EPL table on goal difference, the Arsenal boss has claimed that he is not really interested in the way things stand right now.

Debuchy – Arsenal NEED to beat West Ham 0

Posted on December 28, 2014 by Patrick

There is no doubt that today’s game against West Ham United is a big six-pointer in Arsenal’s quest to regain their rightful place in the Top Four, and the French right-back Martin Debuchy is under no illusions about how close the game could be.

Martin said on “It will be difficult at West Ham on Sunday, but we need to win, so we have to be 100 per cent. West Ham have a lot of players of quality and they have had a very good start to the season, so we can expect a very difficult game.
