Chelsea v Arsenal Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

This Sunday, Chelsea host Arsenal in what is normally a hotly contested clash between two of the most popular football clubs in the capital. The Champions have finally clicked into gear, despite a strange transfer window culminating into a disappointing opening day result, largely overshadowed by events outside the realms of normalcy. Antonio Conte has acted swiftly in the second half of the Summer, to bolster his squad, particularly in the midfield bringing in the likes of Bakayoko and Drinkwater …
Arsenal's Europa League Group Preview

Arsenal's Europa League Group Preview

The name of Arsenal being associated with a competition like the Europa League has been nothing more than unthinkable in my lifetime. Under Arsene Wenger, the Gunners have been in Europe’s elite competition since he took charge of his first full season nearly 20 years ago. But this season poses a new challenge for the Frenchman; a debatably lesser one than that posed by the Bayerns and Barcelonas of recent Champions League campaigns but nevertheless a fresh one. Ahead of …

What Arsenal would miss out on if Thomas Lemar goes to Liverpool

Earlier reports this week had suggested Liverpool were closing in on AS Monaco starlet Thomas Lemar as their club record signing. A deal worth around £70 million was said to have been offered by the Reds as they looked to complete the deal by the end of the window.

Arsenal Player Ratings vs Liverpool after 4-0 loss

“Embarrassing”, “pathetic” and “disinterested”; just three of the words used by pundits and supporters alike to describe one of the worst Arsenal performances of the Arsene Wenger era. But unfortunately for the Gunners faithful, this type of performance is far from becoming an uncommon occurrence in recent years, particularly against the league’s best sides. 6 years ago Arsenal’s 8-2 collapse at Old Trafford to Manchester United was seen as a crisis, exaggerated by the fact that it was rare to …
The Great Crash of English Football Around the Corner

The Great Crash of English Football Around the Corner

In 1997, twenty seven days after Tony Blair became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Mohamed Al Fayed completed his takeover of Fulham FC. In the process, he became the first foreign owner of an English football club. Six years later, Roman Abramovich bought into Chelsea FC and his success then led to many others following suit. The rich had always clambered to get a piece of the action in previous decades, with clubs traditionally being owned by local business …

The biggest match of the weekend will be played at Anfield, as Liverpool host Arsenal. These two teams are expected to finish in the top six again and it will be interesting to see if either can score a mental victory at this early stage of the season.

Why Arsenal Should Sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Why Arsenal Should Sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Arsenal are approaching a difficult week when it comes to making a decision on several key players. There is a need to sell players in order to decrease the squad size, but they want to keep hold of three key men in the final year of their current contracts. Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all approaching the end of their deals and have shown no indication of signing new ones. The first two are regular starters and …
