Was it really so bad for Arsenal to exit League Cup?

Southampton loss no disaster by Sam P

Don’t get me wrong, Arsenal wanted to win this game and stay in the Capital One, or League cup. Arsene Wenger has a pretty strong squad to pick from so even though he made a lot of changes, he would have hoped the players that came in would have been able to beat Southampton at home.

Arsenal v Southampton review – Alexis stunner not enough!!

JustArsenal’s Mr Admin was generously invited by Huawei to this game at the Emirates, so we were wined and dined before the action started. But we were given excellent seats to watch the action from the start.

Official teams and preview of Arsenal v Southampton

As expected, it is a much changed Arsenal starting line-up that Arsene Wenger has picked for the third round visit of Southampton in the Capital One Cup. The big news, though, and something that should put a smile on all of our faces, is the return of Abou Diaby, as the most unlucky Frenchman in football makes his first senior start in 19 months.

Ospina buzzing but ready for a testing Arsenal debut!

The signing of David Ospina was one of the least talked about Arsenal transfers of the summer, but I think that the capture of the Colombia international for around £3 million from the French club Nice was a very good pice of business from Arsene Wenger.

Diaby’s Arsenal return to earn a place for Chelsea clash?

After suffering an amazing and unlucky number of injuries, around 40, in his eight years as an Arsenal player, it is pretty incredible that Abou Diaby has not just thrown in the towel. And many other clubs and managers might have given up on the Frenchman, but not Arsene Wenger and Diaby could be about to repay the faith of his manager.

How serious should Arsenal take Southampton in League Cup?

We all know the usual drill with Arsenal in the Capital One Cup, or whatever name it had in the past, as Arsene Wenger tends to use the competition, especially in the earlier rounds, to give the young Gunners and fringe players some valuable game time and experience.

Will Emirates cup be alone or one of many Arsenal trophies?

I might be jumping the gun a bit here, but after a 5-1 win in the first game, Arsenal are nailed on to win the Emirates Cup this weekend. With a point for every goal scored, the Gunners sit on eight points, with Benfica on just one and Valencia and our opponents today, Monaco, on just three. So as long as we don’t take a heavy defeat and fail to score, Arsenal will win the trophy for the first time since 2010.

A call to Arsenal fans – Stay Positive and make some noise!
