Arsenal starting XI for EPL away day at Leicester 0

Posted on September 26, 2015 by admin

This really is a massive game for Arsenal; as a win would confirm that the Gunners have bounced back from two damaging defeats in a row and would leaves us looking pretty good for a Premier League title challenge, while a defeat would sap all the confidence gained from a north London derby win and confirm that it has been a well below par start to the season.

So there is no doubt that Arsene Wenger wants his strongest line up out there, although an injury problem to Coquelin is not allowing him to do that. Santi Cazorla is back after a one game ban and I think Wenger has to stick Flamini next to the Spaniard in the middle to give us energy and bite.

Arsenal must show NO FEAR at Chelsea 0

Although Arsenal beat Chelsea in the Community Shield in pre-season, the Gunners are still to find a win in the League against Jose Mourinho’s side, and Theo Walcott says that his team must simply play without fear to breal that terrible run against the Portugese manager.

“I think we need to play with no fear,” Walcott told “You can see how Chelsea have started the season, no one has given them any respite on the ball at all, and I think we need to be exactly the same like that.

Wrighty blames Wenger for Arsenal woes! Is he Right-y? 5

There have been a lot of people sticking up for Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal team selection and tactics after the unfancied Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb inflicted and damaging Champions League defeat on Arsenal last night.

Many think that it was the performances of the individual players and the team in general that was to blame for the shock result and that they let the manager down, but the former Arsenal and England striker Ian Wright thinks differently. As reported by The Telegraph today, Wrighty was quick to blame Wenger.

Arsenal have found their perfect striker 0

The win against Stoke highlighted the triumph of class over brute force. It also highlighted the worth of a certain player called Theo Walcott in his striker role.

Walcott has always been acknowledged for his versatility and speed. When be burst onto the scene as a youngster, he was a speedy winger who could trick any defence. But the question always remained top of his agenda – could he become a top striker like his idol Thierry Henry?

Arsenal starting XI for Stoke – NO Giroud!! 1

Arsenal could hardly have asked for a better game to get back into Premier League action with. We may have had our problems when playing against Stoke City in recent years, but they have always come at the Britannia Stadium, while the Gunners have claimed all three points in the last seven games against them at the Emirates stadium.

And with Stoke missing quite a few key players in Shawcross, Afellay, Adam, Johnson, Diouf, Arnautovic and Odemwingie, the game today should provide a goo and important win for Arsenal. It should also allow Arsene Wenger a bit of leeway in his team selection and I think that will mean that he gives Theo Walcott another go in the centre forward role.

Arsenal in for striker transfer after Newcastle struggle? 3

Arsene Wenger would not say so of course, but he must have been very worried as he sat and watched his almost full strength Arsenal side struggle to make much impression on the goal of a ten man Newcastle team. The only good thing to come out of the game, to be honest, was the three points but if this latest toothless performance can persuade the boss that he really could do with another striker, then maybe the win will not be the only positive.

Arsenal to start same XI for Newcastle away 0

Hopefully this will be the last match for which Arsenal will have to do without the first choice centre defensive pairing of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny. Judging from what Arsene Wenger said in his press conference on Thursday though, neither will be available for selection today, leaving Gabriel and Chambers to fill in again.

If that is the case then I see no reason why the manager will not go with the same starting line-up that managed a point at home to Liverpool on Monday night. There are changes that the Frenchman could make, such as bringing his fellow countryman Debuchy back in to face his former team mates, but I think that Wenger is looking for some consistency and rhythm and until he finds it I don’t think he will tinker.

Arsenal close to signing of STUNNING striker 0

It might still be a subject for debate among the Arsenal fans but I think that most of us agree with Thierry Henry about the club needing more options than the French international Olivier Giroud to score our goals.

We do have the excellent Alexis Sanchez of course and our midfielders chip in with goals but it remains to be seen whether Danny Welbeck can push on and challenge Giroud for that central striker position. And the former Man United man really needs to improve his goal tally to go along with his good all round game.

Arsenal BRILLIANT so Bring On Chelsea!! 0

Wow that was some pretty good stuff from Arsenal, especially when you consider that we were playing in the very tough climate and conditions of Singapore and against a decent Premier League side that is theoretically further along in their pre-season preparations than us.

However, Arsenal never gave them a sniff as we passed the ball around with slickness and accuracy. With the likes of Cazorla, Ramsey and Ozil in the centre of the pitch backed up by a fired up Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere on the flanks, Arsenal ran rings around our opponents and were cruising in a 3-0 lead thanks to Walcott, Cazorla and Ozil when they did get what turned out to be a consolation goal.

Cazorla calls on Wenger to boost Arsenal front line 0

The Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla thinks that the Gunners have a ready-made strike force but believes that we may need a new arrival this summer as he is not convinced that Theo Walcott is enough to fire Arsenal to the title. The Spaniard also told how important it was for us to keep the defensive solidity that we found last season.

He said: “One of the key areas we have to focus on next season is being a very strong defensive team. If we have got those things under control our offence is already good enough.
