Arsenal v Tottenham Preview | Key Men, Stats and Team News

Arsenal and Tottenham will rekindle their fierce rivalry on Saturday as the Gunners welcome Spurs to the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal went into the international break with a 3-1 loss to Manchester City, dropping them to sixth in the table. A win on Saturday would move the Gunners only one point behind their North London rivals, but their recent record against Tottenham is quite poor.  Arsenal have not won against Spurs in the league since March 2014 and lost 2-0 in …
Arsenal's Season So Far - As Expected

Arsenal's Season So Far - As Expected

Ten matches into the season and Arsenal find themselves sixth in the table with 19 points.  That said, they're only four points behind second-place Manchester United and only below Liverpool on goals scored.  Considering that, it's tough to evaluate their start to the season. The Gunners have averaged 1.73 points per match so far.  If that were to continue, they would finish with about 66 points, a total that would likely see them finishing in the Europa League spots again.  …
Arsene Wenger's Risks Did Not Pay Off - Player Ratings v City

Arsene Wenger's Risks Did Not Pay Off - Player Ratings v City

To say this is a familiar feeling for Arsenal fans would be an understatement, to say the least. An away day at a top-six club ending with questions, frustration and ultimately disappointment is becoming more than an annual event for the Gunners faithful. This time they faced Manchester City; a team who have now scored a record 52 goals after just 17 games in all competitions. Based on this – and when remembering Arsenal’s previous falters away to top sides …
The Unrealised Potential of Theo Walcott

The Unrealised Potential of Theo Walcott

Theo Walcott is one of a few remaining members of Arsenal’s group of home-grown, British Golden Boys, plucked by Arsene Wenger as a teenager from Southampton in 2006 to join the Arsenal Academy and, presumably, be groomed for greatness. And like too many of the others, he never quite matured into the level of quality originally hoped for. Just this past transfer window, two more players from this vaunted youth group discovered by Wenger with these same high expectations left …

After their respective European exploits over the week, Arsenal and Manchester City return to the Premier League to face each other in a massive match before the international break. Manchester City return from Naples as triumphant winners and already qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League.  They'll come back to Manchester to play what should be an easier match.  Arsenal have struggled away from home in the Premier League in 2017, while City are yet to drop a …

Arsenal vs Swansea City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Arsenal welcome Swansea City to the Emirates needing to win. While they decisively beat Everton last weekend, they have matches away to Manchester City and Tottenham upcoming and need to pick up as many points as possible before then.  Swansea will hope to turn their need for points into something they can exploit.

Mesut Özil is Weary of Playing Arsenal’s Scapegoat

Mesut Özil is Weary of Playing Arsenal’s Scapegoat

The once-magical number ten play of Mesut Ozil for the Gunners has soured. For the past two seasons, he has taken more than his fair share of blame for the Gunner’s downward spiral, end-of-season-collapses. Arsene Wenger and his ossified Board of Directors and American majority owner-Texas million-acre ranch owner-would-be cowboy - billionaire Stan Kroenke have been primarily satisfied with the Gunner’s overflowing coffers and seemingly unconcerned with their 13-year silverware drought. And now that they have spun out of the …
