Why Arsenal defence WILL be ready for Man United

Apart from the slight groin strain picked up in training by Theo Walcott and the slight knock received by Danny Welbeck during the Scotland v England friendly, it has been a pretty good international break for the Arsenal players, who should all have arrived back in north London in a positive frame of mind.

But perhaps more important than that has been the chance for Arsene Wenger and his coaching staff to work with the players not on international duty. Because the Gunners still cannot call on the first choice French defenders Laurent Koscielny and Mathieu Debuchy.

Does a fit Giroud spell 4-4-2 for Arsenal?

We do not know for certain whether Arsenal will be able to call on the services of the England striker Danny Welbeck on Saturday yet, after the 23-year old picked up a slight hamstring problem on international duty. Arsene Wenger did not mention him in his latest injury update on Arsenal/com, but I am sure that he will start if fit, as he has been doing well as our new centre forward and will be desperate to face his former club.

Why Arsenal fans should NOT give up on EPL title yet!!

Yes I know that Arsenal have not exactly looked like title winners so far this season. And even when we have had a bit of luck or put a few results together, the hoped for momentum has been lost soon after. But although it looks like Jose Mourinho and his Chelsea team, currently 11 points ahead of Arsenal, have got one hand on the Premier League trophy, it is not over yet.

Arsenal can and MUST heap misery on crisis hit Man United

There has probably not been a better time for Arsenal to be heading into a match against Manchester United and needing a positive result, because as much as Arsenal may have a few key players on the injury list and are struggling for form and consistency, we are in a much better position than our next opponents.

The only thing Man United have going for them ahead of their trip to the Emirates is that they managed to scrape a win against Crystal Palace in their last Premier League game. But their injury list continues to grow and put Louis van Gaal under serious pressure, as the graphic below reveals.

Ramsey reckons Arsenal can turn despair to delight next week!

It is a shame that Arsene Wenger will not see the star of the season for Arsenal so far until later this week, as Alexis Sanchez plays for Chile tomorrow night and then has a long flight back to London. But the 25-year old is so good he will slot straight back into Premier League action.

And the Frenchman will have a few days with the rest of the squad in order to get them prepared for the crunch clash with Manchester United at the Emirates on Saturday. We really need to win that in order to get the confidence levels high again before Borussia Dortmund visit next Wednesday.

Unhappy at Arsenal? NO! Alexis loving EPL and Wenger!!

I think it must be just another example of the anti-Arsenal stance often adopted by the football media in England, where they love to knock anything Gunners related and especially love to have a go at our French manager Arsene Wenger.

So even though Man City, Liverpool and Man United are all doing just as badly as Arsenal and a lot worse if you consider how much more money they have spent, it seems to be Wenger who is always in the press, on the verge of being sacked and with players and staff supposedly disagreeing with every decision the Prof makes.

Does this mean Arsenal boss is ready to end it all?

There is a huge amount of anger, despair and frustration flowing through the global ranks of Arsenal fans today. Yet another almost identical turnaround in Swansea, right after the players should have learned that very lesson against Anderlecht in the Champions League, has left us bereft of hope and wondering what has happened.

And as much as you might think that Arsene Wenger is breezing along happily and serving up platitudes while having no fear that his failures will result in the sack, think again. Because the Frenchman, according to his own words, is ready to end it all and commit suicide!!!!!

Official teams and preview of Arsenal at Swansea City

With an international break on the horizon, Arsenal somehow find themselves in a great position to go into a two week break in a good position, just a point behind Man City and well above the likes of Liverpool, Man United and Tottenham. And we also need a win to put some poor results and performances behind us and set ourselves up for the rest of the season.

Arsene Wenger has the usual number of injury problems in the squad, with no Arteta, Koscielny, Debuchy, Giroud or Ozil available. So Arsene Wenger has decided to keep, as far as possible, the side that started against Anderlecht and got the Gunners three goals to the good on Tuesday.

No Walcott! So what WILL Arsenal front line be?

He may be playing a bit of mind games, and it would be a first time for the Arsenal manager, but Arsene Wenger has all but stated that he would not be starting Theo Walcott against Swansea City later. And when you consider how careful the Frenchman has been with his fit again front man so far, then he is probably not going to risk Theo from the start.

Arsenal can and MUST take advantage of rivals’ woes

Despite a slow start to the season, Arsenal seem to have got away with it to a certain extent. Apart from Chelsea, none of our main Premier League rivals have really got it together either. So the Gunners have a great chance and all the encouragement needed to step up against Swansea and go into the international break just a point behind the reigning champions Man City.

City were awful today and lucky to get a point at QPR, just as Liverpool have lost it and Man United were lucky to scrape a home win against Crystal Palace. Louis van Gaal and his little boy striker will certainly not be coming to the Emirates with any form or confidence in a couple of weeks time.

Play team game and Arsenal WILL win says Wenger

In the build up to the Premier League clash between Arsenal and Swansea City tomorrow, Arsene Wenger has been reflecting on what went wrong on Tuesday night at the Emirates, when Anderlecht shocked the home crowd and the Arsenal players with three late goals to rescue a point and stop us from booking our place in the Champions League knockout phase.

And while the Prof has pointed out in an Arsenal.com report a few key reasons for what happened, he has also played it down and suggested that it could actually help the team in the long term as it can serve as a lesson and should not end up changing too much as Arsenal looked set to come second in the group anyway.

Arsenal boss HAS to believe but EPL title looks Chelsea’s

No doubt there will be some Arsenal fans who will be unhappy with Arsene Wenger after the Frenchman refused to rule out a Premier League title win for Arsenal this season. As reported by The Mirror, Wenger played down the poor start that we have had and insisted that there is plenty of time for us to improve and mount a real charge.

He did admit that the main thing for the Gunners to do at the minute is just to stay in touch with the top of the table and even that is not proving too easy.
