Arsenal v Monaco – Champions League Stats and Form

Arsenal host AS Monaco at the Emirates tonight in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 match-up. After exits from the competition at this stage in their previous four seasons against the likes of Barcelona, AC Milan and Bayern Munich and with the disadvantage of playing away in the second leg the pressure is on the London club to make it to the quarter-finals for the first time in five years.

Arsenal v Monaco Preview, Line up and Score Prediction

We were all excited when we drew Monaco in the CL and we’ve improved our form drastically since that – meaning we are in the perfect situation to face one of France’s best teams and yet it will still be a difficult game.

Monaco are known as the “boring team” in Ligue 1. They have scored very few goals and opt for defending with their lives and scoring on the break. It is working for them and it can frustrate the best of teams but this tactic means that getting an early goal completely destroys their game plan. They aren’t used to chasing games and we could punish them massively if we are able to get that early goal.

My strongest Arsenal team to destroy Monaco – What is yours?

So there is just one more day to go before Arsenal’s crucial first leg tie against Monaco and we are all aware of our opponents defensive capabilities. But we also know about our own attacking prowess and I am gong to choose a team that should easily break down the French teams defence.

First of all I am hoping above all that David Ospina has recovered fully from his back strain sustained against Palace. I have a terrible feeling that if Szczesny plays we will definitely concede….

Wenger – Palace are tough but Arsenal are CONFIDENT!

The Gunners travel to Crystal Palace today looking to keep the pressure on the teams above us in the race for the Champions League places, and Arsenal are undoubtedly in a great run of form at the moment. We have won 7 of our last 8 matches, and in the head-to-head’s against Palace, Arsenal have not lost in their last ten visits to Selhurst Park and are also unbeaten in our last ten meetings with today’s opponents.

Wenger – Arsenal have the quality (and confidence) to beat Middlesbrough

Most Arsenal fans would rather that the team were fighting for the elusive Premiership crown this season, but as that looks like being a lost cause this time round we are urging the team to go on and retain the FA Cup as a consolation.

First of all we have to topple a high-flying Middlesbrough side who have won their last six games and are full of confidence, but the Gunners have also won five of their last seven in a higher division of football, and have a star-studded squad on paper. But Wenger is looking at another statistic that says that Arsenal have lost just ONE of their last 40 home games in the competition. Wenger thinks this will help the team’s self-belief. “It gives us great confidence,” he said on the official Arsenal website.

Arsenal v Leicester Preview, Line-up and Score Prediction

The players have to recover from that poor result in the derby and there’s no better fixture to restart the winning streak than against the worst team in the division – who’s manager is expected to be sacked if his team loses against us.

I feel the Tottenham result was a blip. It wasn’t down to bad management but down to the fact that we scored too early. The players believed they were playing well when they weren’t and we never recovered. This won’t happen against a team such as Leicester and we should really put them to the sword.

Arsenal need to bounce back against Leicester (with Alexis back!)

After five wins in a row before this weekend, it obviously came as a bit of a shock to lose to our great rivals Tottenham on Saturday, but luckily the players won’t have time to wallow in their misery as they have to pick themselves up quickly for the visit of Leicester tomorrow evening.

Wenger will be keen for the defence to iron out their lapses of concentration during the Spurs game, but Le Prof is hoping to see a strong response from his whole team on Tuesday. “It’s not the first time we lose a game, but how we bounce back is to take the information from what we got today, and respond very quickly on Tuesday,” he said on the Arsenal website.

This North London Derby has come at a great time for both teams. They are both in great form and have recently overcome the questions surrounding their ability to perform in big games. Now they face each other in one of the most exciting derbies in world football.

This is a very important game for us. We need to build on our good form and anything other than a win may disrupt our confidence. We completely shut down Man City at the Etihad and these players are expecting to be able to do something similar to a far inferior team. Football however doesn’t work that way and a small change in personnel, tactics or refereeing decision may entirely dictate the result of the game.

Arsenal MUST be at their best to beat Monaco

Arsenal’s amazing change in form has given us Gooners renewed hope for this season, and we can have high hopes of retaining our FA Cup crown and hopefully going a long way in the Champions League this time around.

But our first obstacle is to get past Monaco, who were considered one of the easiest draws in the competition at the time, but, like Arsenal, they have improved rapidly recently, and are currently on an unbeaten run of 14 games in row in which they have only conceded ONE goal in regulation time (in a 1-1 draw away at Ligue 1 leaders Lyon in the middle of December). The Ligue 1 side has four more games to play before coming to the Emirates on the 25th Feb so we can only hope their consistency takes a knock before then.

Arsenal AND Spurs fans UNITE in booing Adebayor!

The wonderful person and lovable striker (lol) Emmanuel Adebayor has been a figure of hate for Arsenal fans since he forced through a big money move to Manchester City, and then compounded his errors by running the length of the pitch to antagonize our fans after scoring for City against the Gunners.

Since then he has not been one of our favourite players (to say the least!), but now it seems that Tottenham fans will be joining us in booing the mercenary twat after he abused the Spurs crowd and then tried to force a transfer to QPR in January. Since then the Spuds have turned on him.
