Why Arsenal should worry after Wigan cup win

The current football season has been excruciating at times for Arsenal fans and it is showing no signs of getting easier. Despite the excellent run of form recently, with six wins from the last eight Premier League games, the Gunners still have the threat of finishing outside the top four looming large.

With ten man Chelsea coming from behind to win yesterday at Aston Villa, it is now down to Tottenham and Arsenal to fight it out over the remaining Champions League place. There is plenty to worry about for Arsenal fans, as a Spurs win at Stoke City today will leave us needing to beat Wigan at the Emirates on Tuesday and they will be flying high after their shock victory over Manchester City yesterday.

Jovetic agrees to join Arsenal!

Stevan Jovetic is a player we all know well and has reportedly been a long term transfer target for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal for a number of seasons now. He is a Montenegrin international striker and has been at Seria A side Fiorentina for a number of years. Over recent years Jovetic has stated his wish to remain in Italy, however in recent weeks he has become more open on the transfer speculation surrounding his future.

Vertonghen – Tottenham is not the only interested Premier League club

The Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen has made it clear that he is moving from Holland to the Premier League this summer and has not been reluctant to make it clear that Arsenal is his preferred destination, although it is uncertain that Wenger is willing to buy yet another defender.

Recently it has seemed that Tottenham are the new favourites to sign the Belgian international, and although Vertonghen is happy to admit that he is talks with Harry Redknapp, he is at pains to announce that White Hart Lane is not his only possible destination.

City Are Now In On Arsenal’s Hazard Deal

Arsenal can expect even further competition in their attempt to sign star attacking midfielder Eden Hazard as Manchester City is now highly interested in his services as well.

According to a French newspaper, Mancini thinks highly of the player and was quoted saying:

“Hazard has an enormous level of talent and is able to play at the maximum level.

“But we know there is interest from the big European clubs and any deal will not be easy.”

Kompany Couldn’t Stop RVP But Stopped Arsenal

Manchester City’s central defender admits that the win was incredible for them and that it was of great importance. Even though the Citizens defeated Arsenal 1-0, Kompany was unable to stop Robin Van Persie from scoring like he stated before the match, but the striker was signalled offside after he scored.

“It was massive for us, we didn’t underestimate the importance of this game and we’re happy with the result and to keep a clean sheet.

“We’ve been going for a lot of goals and could have scored many, but we didn’t finish the chances we had today, although individually we won most of our challenges.”

Kompany – RVP Is No Match For Me

Manchester City’s central defender Vincent Kompany doesn’t worry about the fact that he’s going to go against league top scorer Robin Van Persie, saying that he has been encountering very string opponents throughout the last few weeks and that he’ll manage to stop the Dutchman like he did with others.

“It is not like it has been any different in the previous weeks,” said the Belgium defender.

“I have gone from Mario Gomez to Wayne Rooney to Edinson Cavani to Didier Drogba and now Robin van Persie. The list of names doesn’t stop.

Wenger Attacks Manchester City’s Transfer Policy

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger has attacked the clubs who choose to have a transfer policy which destroy football for all the other clubs according to the Frenchman. Clubs like City, Real Madrid or PSG transfer anything they set their eyes on and this seems unfair for Wenger.

“The financial difference between us and teams like City has become too big for us to keep the players for eight, nine, 10 years,” Wenger told The Sun.

“We lost Thierry Henry we lost Patrick Vieira. We lost other players before but they had played here for eight, nine years.

Wenger – We Shouldn’t Expect City To Be Weak

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger doesn’t seem to think that Manchester City’s loss to Chelsea will affect the form of the Citizens and that the Gunners shouldn’t anticipate any weaknesses.

“They had two disappointments but they will want to respond,” said the Frenchman.

“Defeats always take a bit of confidence away from you but let’s not speculate on any weakness from their part and make sure on our side we are at our best level.

“It’s the second big test away from home for us. It’s a massive test and we know that you want to be at our best.

Wenger Speaks About Missing Out On Yaya Toure

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger admitted that he’s sad about missing out on Kolo Toure’s brother Yaya after the star defensive midfielder was a step away from joining Arsenal.

“I have known him since he was 15,” said the Frenchman. “We had an agreement with him to come here but the problem was that he was at Beveren and we had to wait long enough for a European passport. Therefore he was impatient and went, at the time, to Metalurg Donetsk.

Milner – We Will Release Our Fury On Arsenal

Manchester City’s winger James Milner declared that City are out to get Arsenal and that despite the loss they suffered against Chelsea last week the Citizens will be ready to defeat the gunners.

“We are pretty devastated but it adds even more incentive for us to bounce back from this disappointment and put it into a performance at the weekend. “

“We will learn what we can from this game and move forward. We have the hunger to go and win again at the weekend.”

“We’re the leaders with an advantage in the table and that’s important. The concerns are for our rivals. “
