SHOCK Arsenal starting XI for Sunderland clash! 1

Posted on May 20, 2015 by admin

With Arsene Wenger having spoken about consistency and cohesion in the build up to this last but one game of the Premier League campaign, most people were not expecting many changes to the Arsenal team. And with the Frenchman having selected the same line up for the last six league games in a row, it could easily have been seven.

But a touch of flu for Laurent Koscielny means that Wenger is likely to start Gabriel and I do not think the changes will stop there. I am actually expecting Wenger to pull a bit of a surprise on Sunderland and their manager Dick Advocaat who will surely have prepared his team to nullify our passing and creative game.

Talking Tactics for Arsenal v Sunderland! 0

Ahead of the game against Sunderland, the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has urged his side to be more direct and decisive in their game, labelling the home defeat to Swansea as an accident and challenging his players to redeem themselves when they welcome Sunderland to the Emirates, knowing that three points will guarantee automatic qualification for next season’s Champions League group stages.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Wenger said: “For me the Swansea game was an accident. Having analysed it, it’s one of the games we deserved to win the most out of all the games. We lost two in two or three years now, so you can say that’s an accident.

Arsenal starting XI for Swansea – Wilshere IN 2

The injury to the Arsenal and Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey has forced the hand of Arsene Wenger a little, even though the Welshman is back in training I do not think Wenger can take any risks.

With Ramsey having been played on the right in recent games though, the manager has got a few options in the Arsenal squad, with Theo Walcott clearly one of them. But I feel that he will go with Jack Wilshere, just as he did when making the change against Hull City last Monday.

Hull City v Arsenal: Confirmed team and prediction 0

Posted on May 04, 2015 by Patrick

Arsenal are nearing kick-off against Hull City tonight, in what looks to be a tough match against an in-form side who are battling against relegation.

The Tigers have won their last two matches, including a 1-0 win over Liverpool last Tuesday, and will be keen to gain all three points to push them four points clear of the drop-zone.

We on the other hand are pushing to finish second in the Premier League table, with Chelsea having wrapped up first-place this weekend.

Arsenal are of course the team with the most form in 2015, and will not be going into any match considering any less than a win.

Arsenal starting XI for Chelsea with Ozil AND Cazorla! 2

Posted on April 26, 2015 by admin

Most Arsenal fans are expecting a tough game against Chelsea today but we are also feeling more confident that Arsene Wenger can finally end his run against Jose Mourinho and get his first victory over his rival. But if it is to be lucky 13 for the Frenchman, he will have to work out how to get through the big blue bus that Chelsea will bring to north London.

For me, the Gunners do have the tools and will need our creative players to outfox the power of Chelsea and that is why I think that Wenger will start with Mesut Ozil in a wide forward role rather than Danny Welbeck, with Santi Cazorla in the central attacking midfield role.

Can Alexis Sanchez beat Eden Hazard to the PFA award? 0

Posted on April 25, 2015 by Patrick

Eight consecutive victories have put Arsenal on course to not only secure a top four finish and Champions League football for the eighteenth consecutive season under Arsene Wenger, but also finish runners-up to Chelsea in the Premier League. An FA Cup Final at Wembley against Aston Villa may be the icing on the cake for the Gunners who have been in imperious form, playing the wonderful free-flowing football that makes them one of the best teams in Europe. Wenger will point to a collective team effort for Arsenal enjoying an excellent campaign, but there can be no doubt that Alexis Sanchez has been a revelation in his first season at the club and been the main reason behind the club’s success. The Chilean star has been in fantastic form all season, with Sanchez not only deservedly nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award, but also included in Bookies.com team of the season and many other Premier League XIs. Eden Hazard may be the only player that stands towards Sanchez and a crowning achievement to wrap up a superb season for the former Barcelona man; it promises to be a close call between two players who have been instrumental in leading their respective team to glory.

Former Arsenal star´s tactics ALL WRONG for Chelsea? 4

He may not have done any actual managerial work since retiring from playing football, but the former Arsenal and Scotland international striker Charlie Nicholas does work as a TV pundit and football journalist so he should have a good grasp of tactics and knowledge of the clubs he talks about in the Premier League.

Arsenal starting XI for Liverpool – NO Cazorla! 0

Arsene Wenger has been faced with a couple of key decisions as he prepared his Arsenal team for a massive game in the fight for the top four and to keep alive our fading hopes of a Premier League title this season.

Assuming that Danny Welbeck is available after the knee injury that saw him sent home early from England international duty turned out to be not as bad as first feared, the Gunners will start with him on one sdie and Alexis Sanchez on the other side of Olivier Giroud in a forward three.

Arsenal starting Line-Up for Newcastle – WALCOTT starts? 0

It will have been pretty easy for Arsene Wenger to prepare his Arsenal team for today’s Premier League away game against Newcastle United, as their manager John Carver admitted this week that he only had 13 fit outfield players to choose from.

So the Arsenal boss does not have to worry too much about which players or system his Gunners will have to contend with today ,and he should be able to set his own team up accordingly in order to exploit the home team´s problems. This game is the last before the international break but I still think the Boss will use it to rest a few key players, like Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and perhaps Mertesacker, Monreal and Bellerin.

Injury-Stricken Newcastle Give Arsenal Further Boost! 1

Following a very impressive display against Monaco in the Champions League, Arsenal will travel to St. James’ Park to face Newcastle United as the Gunners shift their attention back to the Premier League. Considering the rich vein of form that Arsene Wenger’s side are currently in, there cannot be any debate over the fact that Arsenal are most certainly overwhelming favourites in the fixture.

According to latest reports, the Newcastle manager John Carver has confirmed via the club’s official twitter account that he’s got just 13 fit outfield players to choose from when high-flying Arsenal come to visit and also added that he will not be using youth team players just to fill up the gaps in the squad.
