Does Arsenal’s disappointing draw highlight Cazorla importance?

Arsenal succumbed to a 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough this weekend, and some people would even say we were lucky with the one point we received.

Boro boss Aitor Karanka claimed his side should have won the match, and if it wasn’t for Petr Cech’s heroics, we most likely would have lost, but the same could also be said for Victor Valdes, who denied us with some super saves also.

Who did Arsenal miss more today, Cazorla or Xhaka?

Arsenal wrapped up the 3pm kick offs in the Premier League today with a closely fought 0-0 draw, with both Cazorla and Xhaka unavailable to feature.

The game saw plenty of opportunities open up for both sides, but neither team could take their chances. It was a Petr Cech masterclass that kept Arsenal from dropping all three points, but fellow keeper Victor Valdes also had a game to remember for Middlesbrough.

Ramsey and Giroud helping Arsenal to go BIG this weekend

In the press conference ahead of the Arsenal home game against Premier League strugglers Middlesborough this weekend, reported on the Arsenal website, Arsene Wenger revealed that there is still a little doubt over whether Santi Cazorla will be available after the Spaniard picked up a knock in the Champions League win over Ludogorets Razgrad on Wednesday.

Arsenal boss to blame for needless Cazorla injury?

I may be wrong but I have a feeling that Arsene Wenger’s decision to leave Granit Xhaka on the bench for the thumping Champions League win over Ludogorets Razgrad was taken in part because of the red card the Swiss international picked up last weekend against Swansea.

Pick your Arsenal XI to start against Swansea

Arsene Wenger will be determined that Arsenal keep up the momentum that we have been building since the slow start to the season which saw the Gunners take just one point from the first two Premier League games. Looking at the fixture list coming up over the next few weeks you would expect Arsenal to take maximum points from the next three games, but it is vital that we get off to a good start this weekend.

Why Ramsey AND Xhaka will miss Arsenal clash with Swansea

Even though the Arsenal and Wales midfielder was supposed to be back before the international break and has already returned to training after being out with a hamstring injury since the opening game of the Premier League season, Aaron Ramsey will not be fit enough to feature on Saturday when Swansea City and their new manager Bob Bradley come to north London.

STUNNING stat puts Ramsey’s Arsenal place at risk

The Arsenal and Wales international star has not kicked a ball in anger since the first game of the Premier League season, when he picked up the hamstring injury in our disappointing defeat to Liverpool. He is set to miss the latest games for Wales over the next two weeks, with Chris Coleman having another go at Arsenal and Arsene Wenger for it.

International break perfect timing for Arsenal?

The second international break of the season is upon us and Arsenal fans should be very happy about that, although it would not have been nearly as nice if Burnley had been able to hold out against our weary looking attack for another minute, or if the referee had spotted the ball hitting Koscielny’s arm before going over the line to give Arsenal the points yesterday.
