Arsenal v Southampton Match Preview and Team News

The Premier League returns tomorrow after what was a long and rather humiliating international break if you’re an England fan. But back to club football and Arsenal take on Southampton in what is sure to be a fantastic match between two highly placed teams.

Arsenal, who still sit in first place, top of the Premier league, will invite Southampton to the Emirates stadium on Saturday. As well as Arsenal may be doing, and perhaps we are the surprise of the Premier League season so far, we cannot forget Southampton, who in their own respects are doing extremely well.

Team news and Preview of Dortmund v Arsenal

Arsenal fans are in a pretty good mood at the moment thanks to our brilliant league form but the same can’t be said for the Champions league. Losing to Dortmund at home has put us in a very tricky situation and personally, I think we’ll need a draw if we are to survive the group.

Dortmund were really effective against Arsenal at the Emirates because they were able to stifle our creativity whilst always being prepared to hit us on the counter attack. I think it won’t be such a problem at the Signal Iduna Park. We’ll have less possession and will look to move the ball quickly when we do to cause Dortmund some problems.

Team news and Preview for Arsenal v Liverpool – Crunch Time!

Aside from Tottenham, Arsenal haven’t had a really tough game in the Premier League this season. But with a home game against Liverpool and an away game at Old Trafford next weekend, we’ll finally see if we have what it takes to be champions this season.

Liverpool are in some really good form at the moment thanks to the brilliance of the Sturridge and Suarez partnership. But we are also in some pretty good form and being the home team, we have to be favourites to take all three points.

Gnabry joins the young Guns who signed long deals with Arsenal

Arsenal have today announced on the clubs official website Arsenal.com that the Gunners have re-signed German youngster Serge Gnabry on a new long term contract. Gnabry, who is just 18 years old has impressed immensely for the Gunners so far this season, making a few appearances for the first team already.

Having also scored a goal in the league game against Swansea, Gnabry is already on his rise to stardom as one of the club’s most promising players at this current moment in time and the way he is developing at such a rate means that everyone is very much looking forward to the exciting young prospect we have on our books. Arsene Wenger announced the contract extension in today’s press conference ahead of the Capital One Cup game against Chelsea, which I’m sure the man in question, Serge Gnabry, will surely partake in.

Arsenal must use Youth and Experience to compete in Capital One Cup

Chelsea have beaten Manchester City 2 – 1 at Stamford Bridge thanks to once again another Joe Hart howler. Now they set their sights on the Capital One cup match against Arsenal at the Emirates. And although are going to play the second string, it will not be an easy game for Arsenal.

Even though Chelsea will be playing the game only two days after their previous game, they will still field a very menacing line up. The likes of Willian, Mata and De Bruyne didn’t even start for Chelsea today meaning that we can expect those three behind Eto’o. That’s how ridiculously good their squad depth is at the moment and that’s why I don’t think we can take them lightly. Without starting any of the same players, Chelsea can field a side like this:

Gnabry Glad to stay at Arsenal after snubbing Stuttgart

Before signing for Arsenal as a 16-year old, Serge Gnabry played for his boyhood club Stuttgart, and it has now been revealed that the Bundesliga side tried to persuade the 18-year old to return to them this summer. From what we have seen of him in pre-season and since the start of the season, it is no wonder they wanted him back.

His former sporting director Joachim Schneider told Bild, “It’s true, he had the chance to return in the summer, but he opted to fight for his chance at Arsenal and deserves every respect for this decision.

Can Arsenal put trust In Gnabry so early?

Arsenal youngster Serge Gnabry is perhaps one of the biggest upcoming talents in the footballing world at the moment, and ultimately it comes as no shock because the young German under 21 international has hit fantastic heights already considering his age.

Gnabry has been in and around the Arsenal first team for the past two seasons now, this season included. At just 18 years old, this is no mean feat for any player, yet alone one who has managed to battle his way through the ranks at Arsenal in hope of becoming one of the few that actually seem to make it with the Gunners.

In Depth Preview of Swansea v Arsenal on Wenger’s 17th anniversary

Arsenal return to Premier League action tomorrow after what was a rather nerve-racking midweek Capital One Cup game vs. West Brom. The game in midweek wasn’t exactly highly exhilarating like it was expected to be, however at the end of the day it’s just the final result that matters and thankfully the Gunners managed to pull through to the next round to face Chelsea after beating the Baggies 4-3 on penalties.

How will Arsenal cope without Cazorla AND Giroud?

Whilst the majority of news surrounding Arsenal is positive at the moment, I’m afraid following on from our good win against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, there is some bad news to deliver on the injury front. Firstly, though, Lukas Podolski is recovering well and could be in line for a return in early October, whilst vice-captain Mikel Arteta could feature in the Capital One Cup game vs. West Brom. Thomas Vermaelen too made his return for the final few minutes and although he didn’t have a lot to do, he looked up to shape and possibly he could be in line to challenge for his place in the team.
