In depth preview, team news and prediction for Monaco v Arsenal

It is nice to hear that Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal players have travelled to France in confident mood, because we will need all the help that we can get if we are to become the first club in the Champions League to overturn a two goal deficit away from home.

The changes Arsenal MUST make in Monaco! Who would you choose?

With Monaco being famous for the casinos, I suppose there is no better place for Arsenal to roll the dice and have a gamble. And that is just what I expect Arsene Wenger to do tomorrow night as the boss tries to get us into the quarter-finals of the Champions League – despite losing to Monaco 3-1 at home in the first leg.

Easy West Ham game makes life easier for Arsenal ahead of Monaco clash

Arsene Wenger has never made any secret of the fact that he views Arsenal’s priorities a little different to the average Gooner. It led to the famous statement that the football media jumped on to label a Top Four spot the ‘Wenger trophy’.

Scholes shows CLASS in backtracking on Ozil and Arsenal

I was firmly behind Arsene Wenger last week as he stood up for the Arsenal and Germany midfielder Mesut Ozil. Our number 11 had been the subject of criticism, once again, from the former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Scholes.

Arteta BACK but how will he get in Arsenal XI?

There was some bad news for Arsenal on the injury front today, with both Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain not due to be available until after the international break at the earliest, so they won’t be able to help us in the Premier League against West Ham or Newcastle and will play no part in trying to overturn the Champions League defeat in Monaco.

Ramsey must RELAX and Arsenal WILL see his best again!!

It is safe to say that the Arsenal fans have been left a bit disappointed by the contribution made by Aaron Ramsey, the young Welsh midfielder that was our stand out Player of the Year last season. But I think we are a bit harsh on the lad and I think he puts too much pressure on himself as well. If the 24-year old can just relax and play his game, I think that Arsenal will start seeing the best of him again and that would be a major bonus as we face a crucial couple of months.

Arsenal to focus on Premier League and rest key men for Monaco?

I am not saying that Arsene Wenger should play a load of Arsenal’s academy kids when the Gunners travel to Monaco for the return leg of the Champions League knockout phase next week. I am just saying that Arsenal must put most of the focus on the Premier League games now.

Santi Cazorla in line for Arsenal and PFA Player-of-the-Year

It is impossible to say just yet, as there are still 11 games for Arsenal to play in the Premier League, but so far it looks like our Spanish midfield maestro Santi Cazorla is in with a chance of getting the PFA PLayer of the Year award this season.
