Looking at things from an Arsenal point of view I definitely agree with Arsene Wenger’s suggestion that the penalty awarded against the Gunners today was a soft one and that Moussa Dembele was looking for it when he ran into the box and into three Arsenal players that he was never going to get past.
First of all Arsenal fans, I want to say that I am not revelling in the misfortunes of others, but with Tottenham next up in the Premier League I am sure that Arsene Wenger would take any help we can get in beating our local rivals at the Emirates stadium on Sunday.
It remains to be seen what happens with the current striker situation at Arsenal, with Olivier Giroud so far having made just four short appearances for the Gunners from the subs bench and Alexis Sanchez looking like a hard man to displace from his new centre forward position.
Arsenal interested in Moussa Dembele?
We hear it all as Arsenal fans when it comes to transfer rumours, because for some reason the media loves to link us with every professional player under the sun. Therefore you have to sometimes find the anomalies amongst the pack and although this rumour may seem like one, it wouldn’t be too bad if it turned out to be true.
Arsenal are the latest name to be linked with a move to sign Fulham’s Moussa Dembele on a free transfer this summer.
The 19 year-old’s contract is set to expire at the end of the month, and looks unlikely to sign an extension, despite a big-money contract supposedly on the table by his current club.
Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players will already have been well aware that one of the biggest threats that we will have to cope with against Tottenham in the latest north London derby will be their England international striker Harry Kane. We found out to our cost how sharp the young forward can be last season, when his two goals turned a winning position into a defeat for Arsenal.
