Arsenal v Stoke City Preview | Team News & Key Players

Arsenal v Stoke City Preview | Team News & Key Players

Arsenal obviously want to win every game they play in, but the Premier League games aren’t all that meaningful for the rest of the season. You’d get some pretty decent odds by Coral on Arsenal winning all their games that’s for sure. The Gunners find themselves 13 points outside of the top four with only eight matches left to play.  Realistically, they are not making the Champions League via their league placement and will have to hope to win the Europa League.  …
Can Arsenal's New Attack Help Them Achieve A Top 4 Spot?

Can Arsenal's New Attack Help Them Achieve A Top 4 Spot?

A brave new era at Arsenal was ushered in on Saturday when Henrikh Mkhitaryan played in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to put them 4-0 up against Everton. Those two combined for a remarkable 59 goals and 31 assists in their final season together at Borussia Dortmund and they were up to their old tricks on Saturday. They linked up well to tee up Aaron Ramsey for the opener, and the Gunners went on to beat a sorry Everton 5-1. Positivity abounded at …
Where do Aubameyang and Mkhi leave Arsenal?

Where do Aubameyang and Mkhi leave Arsenal?

Once it was realised Alexis Sanchez would not be an Arsenal player by the end of the window, it was all doom and gloom and once it became clear Man Utd was the destination, it seemed to be even worse. To lose their best player to Jose Mourinho of all people seemed to just make the situation worse. But to replace him with Henrikh Mkhitaryan now was probably the best deal they were ever going to get, considering Sanchez' attitude …
What does the arrival of Sanchez mean for Romelu Lukaku?

What does the arrival of Sanchez mean for Romelu Lukaku?

Manchester United have had an eventful January so far. Three wins in three in the Premier League without conceding a goal, FA cup progression and most importantly - the signing of Alexis Sanchez - a massive statement of intent from the club in January which has raised eyebrows for various reasons, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan going the opposite way. United now have in the ranks one of the few true world-class attacking footballers with the ability to turn a game on …
Why A Mkhitaryan & Sanchez Swap Deal Would Benefit All

Why A Mkhitaryan & Sanchez Swap Deal Would Benefit All

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has become a central figure in this January transfer window, as reports suggest he holds the key to Alexis Sanchez's future. It had been expected that the Chilean would leave Arsenal for Manchester City. However, Manchester United have jumped ahead of their local rivals in the queue to sign the 29-year-old and hope the offer of a straight swap deal will get a deal completed. Sky Sports report that any possible switch to Old Trafford is hinged on …
Why Phil Neville is Wrong about Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Why Phil Neville is Wrong about Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Before going on to do the objectively right thing and look at why Phil Neville was wrong about the now seemingly exiled attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan at Manchester United, it is vital to evaluate how the 27-year old has fared so far at Old Trafford in 2017/18. Mkhitaryan started the season - arguably the brightest, picking up from where he had left off in the season before scoring vital away goals in the Europa League run, culminating in a night …
Why Jesse Lingard is crucial for Manchester United over the Christmas period

Why Jesse Lingard is crucial for Manchester United over the Christmas period

Manchester United have a lot of attacking talent in their squad, but the player to make the headlines in recent weeks hasn’t been one of the usual names. Jesse Lingard has emerged as a good supporting act in recent seasons. He produces important goals and provides healthy competition for the attacking places in the first-team. Few have seen him as a potential starter for United, but he has scored three goals and contributed one assist in his last two matches. …
Henrikh Mkhitaryan: So near yet so far?

Henrikh Mkhitaryan: So near yet so far?

Manchester United, at the time of writing, are running low on momentum - momentum which I argued was the buzzword under Mourinho in 2017/18, was almost willingly lost at Anfield in a draw that was devoid of everything the Red Devils were in the first two months of the campaign. Mourinho paid the price at last for snapping a series of positive and attacking displays - trading off all the fearlessness the young forward line spearheaded by Lukaku, Rashford and …
