Don’t worry Arsenal – Anderlecht have even BIGGER problems 0

Posted on October 22, 2014 by admin

It is understandable that many Arsenal fans are so concerned about the poor run of results so far this season, with just two wins from eight Premier League games and an early exit from the Capital One Cup, that there is very little confidence that the Gunners can come back to north London with three Champions League points tonight.

And this belief has not been helped by the injury to the Colombian reserve keeper David Ospina, meaning that rookie Martinez is set to make his Champions League debut because of Wojciech Szczesny being suspended. But even though Laurent Koscielny has joined Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil, Mathieu Debuchy and others on the sidelines, Arsenal’s problems pale in comparison with those facing our opponents Anderlecht, as revealed in a Daily Star report.

Arsenal starting XI to face Hull City – WITH Podolski 0

As we know all too well, the international break left Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger with even more injury problems to worry about. The injury list on the Arsenal.com website has a staggering 11 first team players on it, but actually things are not quite as bad as they seem.

Two of those players, Walcott and Gnabry, played for 45 minutes and an hour respectively last night, while Monreal, Arteta and Rosicky are supposed to be available for today’s Premier League visit of Hull City. And then Sanogo and Ramsey are due back in the next game or two so the problems actually seem to be easing off.

Arsenal already looking past Hull to Anderlecht? 0

I hope that I am wrong about this but I get the feeling that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players might be taking their eyes off the ball a little bit. Maybe it is because the Gunners did the double over tomorrow’s opponents Hull City in the Premier League last season, scoring five goals without reply, but it is a dangerous game to play.

How Arsenal can avoid a repeat of Chelsea choker! 0

I do not really think that Arsenal are going to play as badly against Chelsea did when last we made the journey to Stamford Bridge back in March. That 6-0 drubbing was the low point of the season and the fact it was against Jose Mourinho on what should have been a special day for Arsene Wenger is probably one the reasons why the Frenchman has declared it to be the worst day of his Gunners career, as reported by Sky Sports.

Szczesny warns that Chelsea stars could destroy Arsenal 1

The Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny will be hoping that a few of the Chelsea players he and his team mates are due to face tomorrow will have an off day. Because the 24-year old is well aware that their players like Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard have more than enough ability to hurt any team at the moment.

The Poland international, in an Arsenal.com report, warns his team mates that the whole Chelsea team are in a good place right now, having made a great start to the season and seemingly having fixed the problems that held them back last season.

Arsenal starting line-up for Galatasaray in Champions League 0

Happy Arsenal anniversary to Arsene Wenger, who started his job as manager of the Gunners 18 years ago today. The Frenchman will only enjoy his special day, however, if the Arsenal team he selects to face the Turkish club Galatasaray are able to come away with all three points.

And their manager Cesare Prandelli has vowed to make that task as difficult as possible and send his team out to harry and chase their Arsenal counterparts as he clearly sees that as the way to disrupt us from our fluent passing game.

Arsenal WILL have Jack for Chelsea but who can face Galatasaray? 0

Posted on September 29, 2014 by admin

It is definitely a great piece of news for Arsenal, as the latest injury update reported by The Mirror reveals that, despite turning his problem ankle again in the north London derby draw with Tottenham on Saturday, Jack Wilshere has not got a big problem and will be fit for the trip to face Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend.

With Arteta and Ramsey already ruled out, that is a huge boost for Arsene Wenger but it does mean that the England international will not be risked against Galatasaray in the Champions League group game on Wednesday. At least that is a home game which the Gunners should dominate, but who will fill the central midfield positions?

Chamberlain – Arsenal can beat Chelsea by controlling the game 0

The Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seems to be in the news a lot more since his goal against the Spuds on Saturday and he has now revealed that the Gunners will not be changing their attacking style when they play Chelsea next week, but he expects a much better outcome than last years 6-0 demolition from Mourinho’s men last season.

“We do understand what happened there last season,” said Oxlade-Chamberlain. “Maybe we have got a point to prove there, we know this year we have got to step up in the big games and get some results in them this year.

I have heard a lot of pundits in the build up to the first north London derby of the weekend talking as if Arsenal were a nailed on certainty to beat Spurs today. I know we beat them three times out of three last seasons and I know that they have got stuck in a rut after a strong start, but it is not as if the Gunners have been blowing everyone away with all guns blazing.

Arsenal League Cup starting XI with Diaby and Ospina 0

Arsene Wenger always rotates his Arsenal team for the Capital One Cup, as the League Cup is known in it’s current form. But the fact that it is a Premier League club that is coming to the Emirates this evening means that the boss has still got to select a fairly strong side to give the Gunners a good chance of going through to the next round.
