Mohamed Elneny earns consecutive Arsenal monthly player awards

January signing Mohamed Elneny has picked up the Vitality Player of the Month for April, having won the same award in March also.

The Eqyptian starĀ seems to have hit the ground running in an Arsenal shirt, having only joined this winter. Elneny has started every match since February 5, and looks very comfortable playing with his new team.

Cazorla to inspire Arsenal to strong EPL finish?

Arsene Wenger revealed yesterday that, although Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are not exactly 100 percent match fit after coming back off the injury list, he does have the full squad of Arsenal players to choose from. The fact that this is the first game this season when he has been able to say that does highlight the massive problems the boss has been faced with again this season and we can only wonder what might have been had he been able to call on his strongest XI every week as Leicester and the Spuds have.

Giroud and Ramsey in official Arsenal team for West Brom

I was half expecting to see the Arsenal and France international centre forward Olivier Giroud back in the styarting line up tonight. Arsene Wenger spoke in the build up to the game against the Baggies about expecting a strong and committed defensive display from Tony Pulis’s team and that means that Giroud’s attributes could be more important than the pace of Danny Welbeck. And it is not as if the England forward has been in great scoring form himself in recent weeks, so the Frenchman gets the nod.

Coquelin blames Arsenal title failings on absences

Francis Coquelin has claimed that the mass of injuries suffered during the season has cost the club their chance to lift the Premier League trophy.

Arsenal sit 13 points behind surprise league leaders Leicester City currently, with only six matches left to play. Despite a huge winning streak and a number of other results going our way, our chance to win the league is all but dead.

Arsenal’s cunning plan to stop West Ham danger man Payet?

The fact that Arsene Wenger spoke about his fellow countryman during the Arsenal press conference ahead of the match between Arsenal and Dimitri Payet’s West Ham just shows how much of a key player for Slaven Bilic is. It also tells you that Wenger sees Payet as one of the biggest obstacles between Arsenal and all three points in East London tomorrow.

Should Arsenal drop Elneny when Cazorla returns?

Arsene Wenger and the other Arsenal players have both pinpointed the additions of Mohamed Elneny and Alex Iwobi to the Gunners first team in recent weeks has brought about an immense improvement in our form, and I honestly can’t see that either of them will be dropped from the remaining League games unless they are forced out through injury.

Amazing Elneny stats show Arsenal better off without Ramsey?

I am not one of the Arsenal fans that were calling for Aaron Ramsey to be dropped from the Arsenal team and even sold a few years ago as he was struggling to find his best form after coming back from that horror leg break and a long injury lay-off. And Ramsey proved his doubters wrong and then went on to have a storming season which, but for another few months on the sidelines, may have led Arsenal to the title.

Arsenal player ratings from Watford demolition – Alexis MOTM

There were some fantastic performances in an Arsenal shirt yesterday all over the pitch, as the Gunners romped to a 4-o thrashing of Watford, including a nice dash of revenge for the FA cup exit a few weeks ago. As well as the attacking and creative play, the performances of the central midfielders in snuffing out any danger and controlling the game was very good but because of the nature of the match I had to pick one of the forward players for Man of the Match and Alexis Sanchez just got my nod ahead of the brilliant Alex Iwobi.
