Arsenal Are Repeating Past Mistakes With Willian

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Willian Borges da Silva. The 32-year-old winger agreed to a rumored three-year deal to move from west London to north London.

These signings suggest that Arsenal's plan this summer is to put all their eggs in next season's basket. From the outside looking in, the plan seems to be to ride their current veterans, plus at least …

Evaluating Nicolas Pepe's First Season At Arsenal

Nicolas Pepe was Arsenal's big summer signing. The Gunners signed the winger from Lille for a club-record £72m, hoping he'd help push them into the top four. The team failed to reach that goal, but it's unfair to pin that solely on Pepe. That said, the Ivorian did have a turbulent first season in north London.

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

Neither of these teams have anything left to play for in the Premier League. So, the FA Cup is taking increased significance as a result. They are two wins away from a trophy that would add significance to what have been two insignificant seasons.

Those factors alone make it can't miss television. Tottenham has struggled since the restart. They've only won two of their five matches post Covid-19 stoppage. That form has all but …
