Arsenal handed EPL boost as Liverpool problems mount!

Arsenal head into the weekend’s big Premier League clash with a great chance of beating a struggling Liverpool team and banishing the memories of last season’s 5-1 pasting at Anfield. A win could put the Gunners as high as fourth and will open up an eight point gap on Brendan Rodgers and his players.

Arsenal do have plenty of our own problems to deal with, as usual. The injury situation at the Emirates may be easing, but Arsene Wenger will still have to do without a long list of key players such as Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Laurent Koscielny.

Liverpool v Arsenal Sunday 21st Dec 16.00 Anfield

After suffering defeat at the hands of arch rivals Manchester United on Sunday, further pressure was mounted onto the shoulders of Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers. This was followed on Wednesday with what appeared a tricky quarter-final tie away to high flying Championship side Bournemouth in the League Cup. The Reds comfortably won 3-1 making their way into the Semi-finals to face Chelsea.

MY Arsenal team to beat Liverpool – What is yours?

My Arsenal XI to Beat Livepool on Sunday! by AT

Following comprehensive wins against Newcastle United and away at Galatasaray in the Champions League, Arsenal will go into the big game against Liverpool full of confidence. Despite numerous injuries continuing to plague the side, Arsene Wenger can still pick a very strong starting eleven to not only match Liverpool but also beat them. Here’s the starting eleven that I think should take to the pitch at Anfield.

Why Arsenal MUST make use of LIverpool fatigue!

It would have been a lot better for Arsenal if the Championship side Bournemouth had given Liverpool a rougher ride in the Capital One cup quarter-final last night. Extra time and penalties were what we really wanted, but the Gunners can still make use of that game to our advantage.

The fact that Bournemouth got a goal back and pushed hard for the last half hour was certainly a bonus. Not only did it mean that the Liverpool players could not relax and had to put in a real shift right until the end of the game, it also meant that Rodgers could not afford to replace so9me key players like Raheem Sterling, Steven Gerrard and Jordan Henderson.

Giroud warns Arsenal not to take Monaco lightly

Why Arsenal Cannot Take Monaco Lightly! by AT

The majority of Arsenal fans will be very happy with the Champions League round of 16 draw after drawing AS Monaco and will also be quietly confident of the Gunners beating the Ligue 1 outfit to progress into the Quarter-Finals of Europe’s elite competition. While it is comparatively a much better draw considering we could have drawn Real Madrid or Bayern Munich like the past two seasons, the Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has reminded us that Monaco will not be pushovers.

Arsenal facing trouble after Liverpool’s league cup win?

Arsenal fans were hoping that the Championship leaders Bournemouth could do us a favour by giving our next Premier League opponents Liverpool a tough time and more misery in their Capital One cup match tonight. But it did not quuite work out that way at all and the Gunners now face a more confident and rejuvenated Liverpool team at Anfield on Sunday.

PERFECT time for Arsenal to exact REVENGE on Liverpool?

While most of the talk about Arsenal today will revolve around the Champions League competition, which the Gunners are still in while our next Premier League opponents Liverpool crashed out at the group stage despite am easy looking draw.

Brendan Rodgers and his beleaguered players are looking bereft of belief at the minute and will be hoping that another cup competition this week can help them get some of that back. But I think their Capital One cup quarter-final on Wednesday is more likely to help Arsenal.

Official teams and preview of Arsenal v Newcastle

As usual the Arsenal squad is massively depleted due to injury problems and the suspension of Calum Chambers could hardly have come at a worse time for Arsene Wenger and the club, especially with today’s visitors to the Emirates stadium coming fresh off the back of a famous victory over Chelsea.

But Newcastle United have a shocking record against the Gunners, just like we have against last weekend’s tormentors Stoke City, so hopefully that will not change. Wenger has been forced to field yet another different back four, this time with the fit again Mathieu Debuchy coming in to partner Per Mertesacker in central defence. Let us hope the Frenchman adapts quicker than Nacho Monreal did.

We’ve been extremely inconsistent in the league and this means that the top 4 hasn’t really been established. At the moment, United are the most likeliest to make it in there but the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool have all failed to really establish themselves and are now in a fight with each other to get that final place.

Official teams and preview of Galatasaray v Arsenal

Arsene Wenger had already let it be known that a number ofArsenal first team players like Alexis Sanchez, Laurent Koscielny, Danny Welbeck and Kieran Gibbs would be left in London to recover and recharge their batteries for the Premier League games to come.

And with six young players from the academy system going in their place and the game against Galatasaray unlikely to make any difference to the Champions League standings, I wondered if Wenger might take even more risks and start with a couple of the young Guns.

Is Arsenal boss wasting his time playing down Stoke rivalry?

While Ryan Shawcross has been trying to get the intense rivalry between Arsenal and Stoke City into the forefront of all our minds and get the home fans whipped up into a frenzy before the Gunners arrive at the Britannia stadium tomorrow, Arsene Wenger has been doing the opposite.

In his pre-match press conference reported by Arsenal.com, the manager had his diplomatic head on and tried his best to play down the situation. Wenger has been a big part of the rivalry as well, being regularly targeted and taunted by the Potters fans, but he seems to want to ignore the provocation and draw a line under it. And with the Ramsey situation being the start of it all, Arsenal do have more reason to hold a grudge.

Wenger to risk Arsenal star DESPITE injury fears!

Although Arsene Wenger dismissed the idea that Arsenal are completely reliant on our summer signing Alexis Sanchez, the manager did accept that the Chile international is a massive player for us. As reported by ESPN, the manager spoke in glowing terms about his striker and all thge things he brings to the Arsenal team, including 14 goals already from just 22 games.

Wenger said, “He has a huge desire, no complex and a fighting attitude. Even when he misses something, it doesn’t affect him. I believe as well he is very mobile, very determined and he has the sense to be in the right place in the box.
