Arsenal v Leicester Preview, Line-up and Score Prediction

Arsenal vs Leicester Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ

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.

Spurs v Arsenal – Let’s compare Giroud with Harry Kane

This Saturday will see the 180th North London derby between Tottenham and Arsenal at White Hart Lane. The reverse fixture at the Emirates in September finished 1-1.

The sides currently sit fifth and sixth in the Premier League table and with just two points separating them, the upcoming clash holds even more significance than usual in the fight for Champions League qualification.

Both teams go into the game on an excellent run of form. Tottenham are on an unbeaten run of 7 home league matches while Arsenal have enjoyed 5 wins from their last 5 games in all competitions.

Tottenham v Arsenal – It’s all about winning! You HAVE to win it!

Le Coq aiming to shoot down the Cockerel!

Francis Coquelin may have only been Arsenal’s Number One defensive midfielder for a few weeks, but he has been at the club for seven years now and knows all about our fierce rivalry with our inferior neighbours. The Frenchman knows that only one thing matters when we are playing Tottenham, and that is coming away with all three points…

“It’s a massive game for the club and the fans,” Coquelin told Arsenal Player. “I think everyone is looking forward to it. The Manchester City match was a big one, and this one has got a special something about it.

Ray Parlour betting on Arsenal to beat Tottenham! So Am I….

Ray Parlour, Arsenal legend turned TV Pundit, is looking forward to next weekend’s North London Derby, and although he knows that Spurs are in great form he still believes the Gunners can take all three points away from White Hart Lane.

He told SportLobster: “Who’s coming out on top in the North London derby? Be honest now. Tottenham are in great form. Eriksen and Kane have been in top form.

“Arsenal are also playing really well. There’s a great competition for places at the club. I honestly believe it will be a tough game but Arsenal will win. We’ve got a decent record at White Hart Lane. I would put money on Arsenal.”

Who should Arsenal drop to to fit in Alexis against Tottenham?

Hello Gooners all over the world! by DD

I hope we are all buzzing with the 5-star performance from the Arsenal lads yesterday and we are all now looking forward to next weekend’s North London Derby. We are all hoping that the boys will be firing on all cylinders against the Spuds. Saying that, Arsenal will have Alexis Sanchez back for the Derby but who will Wenger drop to put him back in the starting line-up? Ozil or Walcott??

Arsenal v Aston Villa Preview, Line-up and Score Prediction

Arsenal vs Villa Preview, predicted line up and score line by KJ

We have a good run of Premier League fixtures until the end of April and that means we have the opportunity of really staking a claim for that third spot. Villa are in dire form and are struggling to score goals meaning this is likely an easy win for the Gunners.

Even though it seems like a foregone conclusion for the fans, the players can’t go into the game with the same mentality. They must be prepared for the worst and really put Villa to the sword whenever they make a mistake.

My Arsenal team to beat Aston Villa – What’s yours?

I am quietly confident that Arsenal are set for a resounding win this weekend against Aston Villa, even without Alexis Sanchez, to set us up for an even easier win at White Hart Lane next Saturday morning. This is my predicted line-up for the game.

Ospina is nailed on to continue between the sticks. Three games, three clean sheets. Nuff said.

Defenders: Koscielny and Mertesacker will continue their partnership, and hopefully both will look to improve to keep Gabriel watching from the subs bench. Bellerin has proved he is a better right back than Chambers and his attacking prowess will be used fully against Villa. Monreal is definitely my preference over Gibbs on current form.

What result do Arsenal fans want between Chelsea and Man City?

The two big moneybags tems in the Premier League meet this afternoon at Stamford Bridge. We all hate Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea, and Man City have snuck through to win the title twice in the last few years, but who do Arsenal fans want to win the game.

If Chelsea win they will go 8 points clear of their opponents in the title race, but it could reduce City’s lead over us to just five points, whereas a City win would leave a huge gap between the first two and the rest of us minnions…..
