Walcott NOT to be rushed back to Arsenal First XI

At last Theo Walcott is finally approaching full fitness and he managed to come through the first 45 minutes of the Gunners reserve match last night, but after so long on the sidelines he is not expecting to be rushed back into the first team.

He said after the game: “It was good, nice to get a little blow out, it’s a been a hard, long, nine months, and first I’ve got to say a massive thank you to all the Arsenal medical team because without them I wouldn’t have been able to do what I’ve done.

Walcott to play for Arsenal against Hull – and Gnabry back too

With all the injury problems that Arsenal have had to cope with already, just seven games into the Premier League season, it was a boost for anyone interested in the Gunners just to see Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry back in full training this week. But it now looks as though we could be set for a much bigger boost.

According to a Metro the Arsenal boss is actually preparing to play the flying England forward on Saturday, when Steve Bruce brings his Hull City side to north London. They are sitting just one point and three places behind Arsenal in the EPL table.

At Last! Arsenal injury problems easing to give Wenger options

With an international break to follow after this weekend’s round of games in the Premier League, Arsenal have just one more game to get through before the squad starts to look more like it should and Arsene Wenger has almost a full complement of players to pick his Arsenal line-up from.

It’s a shame that our one game is away to Chelsea, though, because we could have done with the likes of Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey available for what could be our toughest game of the season. But these things happen and you have to deal with them. There is some good news for Wenger ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge, with the news on Arsenal.com that our Spanish left back Nacho Monreal is fit again after his back problem.

Arsenal players expecting a fight for the FA cup final

This weekend, Arsenal return to FA Cup football having reached the semi-final stage, which is set to take place at Wembley on Saturday. Our opponents Wigan Athletic are a decent side, something we must give credit to, however Arsenal should still be expected to win. The only thing holding us back is our current form and I am sure that with the way that we are playing many may be feeling very similar how German youngster Serge Gnabry is feeling at the moment. However although he recognises the game will be tough, there is determination amongst the Arsenal players to get the job done.

Arsenal may be without Ozil for whole season!!

In Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich in the second leg of the last 16 Champions League competition, Mesut Ozil was ‘forced’ to come off at half time with a suspected tight hamstring. I put the word forced in inverted commas because at the time I didn’t believe the news. I felt that Wenger wanted to make the move for tactical reasons rather than an injury concern however Arsene Wenger later told Sky Germany in his post-match press conference:

Wenger’s words and Team news for Arsenal v Coventry

Tonight Arsenal will face Coventry City in a strange sense of Friday night football for this 4th round FA Cup tie. The Gunners go into the game full of confidence having kept up their title challenge for this season, with a good run of wins, the latest coming against Premier League strugglers Fulham FC.

Coventry may not be Premier League or even Championship opposition for the Gunners to face this time around. However sometimes this can go against you and in the opposition’s favour as everyone expects the big guns to win. Wenger has made it very clear that the team will prepare for this game in complete seriousness and train as if it was against any other opponent that they would face on a weekly basis.

Team news and stats for Arsenal v Fulham

Our Arsenal Guns will be challenged by the Badgers at the Emirates later today. This Fulham side is sitting just 1 point from the relegation zone and has conceded ridiculous goals in every single match ever since Rene Meulensteen was appointed as Manager, giving us the higher edge with Arsenal’s newly found character in winning such fixtures and staying top of the league with 48 points after four league wins in succession.

Why the future is really bright for Arsenal starlet

Serge Gnabry seems to be the latest teenager sensation hot off the production line at Arsenal as he heads for the first team opportunities. Gnabry, despite only recently turning 18 years old has already featured lots for the Gunners, in what has been a special season so far and he looks to continue to rack up the appearances in the near future at least.

Mainly because of injuries to the majority of Arsenal’s main wide men, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski, this season has allowed the young teenage German to progress from the reserves to the first team in a matter of weeks. Gnabry played two consecutive games in a row against Spurs and then Villa and he impressed equally on both occasions, with the media pundits especially pleased with his performances.

Arsenal line-up and preview of Aston Villa clash

After a very hectic Christmas period, Arsenal are back to one game a week at the moment until we play Coventry at home in the FA Cup. This will have allowed all of our players to recuperate and they should be very fresh. It’s easy to forget that teams like Aston Villa, without CL football, are used to a week’s rest between almost all of their Premier league games whilst the Arsenal players aren’t. This should give us a slight advantage just from a fitness point of view.

Arsenal could be set to lose young star Gnabry

As Arsenal are supposedly upping their game on the search for a striker this January following the news that Theo Walcott will be ruled out for the rest of the Premier League campaign, few would have expected to hear that a possible outgoing player rumour was doing the rounds.

Arsenal and Germany under 19 international, Serge Gnabry has made a breakthrough into the Gunners first team this season, showing his full potential through a string of impressive performances more than once this season. But now Arsenal could be in for a battle to keep the youngster with German superclub Borussia Dortmund supposedly eyeing up a summer move for the 18 year old.
