Di Maria warns United to watch out for Arsenal’s “key player” Alexis

I suppose it would be very easy for anyone to pinpoint Alexis Sanchez as Arsenal’s most dangerous player this season, but Man United’s Angel Di Maria probably knows him better than anyone else after facing him in nine competitive games since 2011 in Spain and internationals between Argentina and Chile.

Should Arsenal now see Liverpool as main rivals?

Arsenal were looking set to enjoy an almost perfect weekend in the Premier League, with Man United losing at Swansea, Tottenham dropping points at home to West Ham and Jose Mourinho left fuming as Burnley stole a point off Chelsea (not that we are in the title race but just because I don´t like them).

Wenger feels United CANNOT be as lucky TWICE against Arsenal

It was a painful day for Arsene Wenger and everyone else concerned with Arsenal when Manchester United came to the Emirates stadium in late December, but only because of the result.

With Arsenal´s summer signing David Ospina still in impressive form and showing no real signs of giving up his new role as the starting keeper for the Gunners in the Premier League, Wojciech Szczesny will have been looking forward to the FA cup clash with Middlesborough today.

Why Arsenal fans should be VERY confident against Middlesbrough

We all know that Middlesbrough are currently are on a great run of form right now under Aitor Karanka, and Arsenal fans are obviously a little bit wary going into today’s Fifth Round FA Cup tie, but when you look into Arsene Wenger’s record in this competition you should not be in the slightest bit worried.
