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 …

Arsenal 2017/18: Season Preview

On one side of the coin, the upcoming season presents many a familiar challenge for Arsenal; the fans' opinion on their long-serving manager remains split, and key players are linked with moves away. But on the flip side, the new campaign provides a host of fresh hurdles for the Gunners, particularly with the prospect of Europa League football as opposed to the Champions League for the first time in years.

Arsenal will be getting ready to host Watford in Tuesday night’s Premier League game as the Gunners look to edge closer to Premier League leaders Chelsea. Having won six of their last seven games, Arsenal are in brilliant form right now, a fact only made more apparent with their incredible game against Southampton.

David de Gea – Liverpool’s Nemesis, But Not the Best This Season

David de Gea – Liverpool’s Nemesis, But Not the Best This Season

Liverpool fans generally do not find much fault with Rafa Benitez but some like me do feel that he should have signed David de Gea on the summer transfer deadline day in 2015 for Real Madrid. That he didn't, has troubled Liverpool big time. In the last five league matches between Liverpool and Manchester United, de Gea has put in 17 saves (3.66 per game) and since his move to Real Madrid fell through, he has put in 9 saves (3 …
Time to Bid Adieu to Van Gaal?

Time to Bid Adieu to Van Gaal?

Louis van Gaal was booed by the Manchester United crowd as he tried to thank Old Trafford for its support this season. The Dutchman addressed the crowd following the end of United's last game of the season against Bournemouth. Manchester United's 3-1 victory sealed European football next season with a fifth placed finish in the league, but their inferior goal difference meant they missed out on Champions League qualification to rivals Manchester City. The result was only good enough to …

Arsenal Lacks Hunger To Win: Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal’s embarrassing game against Swansea City is a shocking turn of events, when compared to their earlier performances. For the first, blistering 20 minutes, it looked Arsenal were well-set on the road to recovery, following their defeat at Old Trafford. They lost their composure again, however, letting Swansea back into the game and surge to a shock win. Though all the pressure will be on Arsene Wenger, it was his players who came in for the biggest criticism, with fans …
What are Arsenal doing differently?

What are Arsenal doing differently?

Arsenal currently find themselves in an excellent position, sitting top of the Premier League and are rightly considered genuine title contenders. In fact, some now even consider them favourites to be crowned champions come May; but what, if anything, are they doing differently? I’ve decided to compare various statistics from this season with both the 2013/14 and 2014/15 campaigns to evaluate why they’ve gone in many eyes from pretenders to contenders. Attacking As the old saying goes: “goals win games”; …
