I really hope that Arsene Wenger sends the Arsenal team out with some licence to express themselves on Sunday, even though the pressure is on for us to pick up a first Premier League win since the Gunners beat Newcastle United in the first game of 2016.
It was not really too difficult tp pick a Man of the Match from the Arsenal win over Burnley in the fourth round of the FA cup, despite some impressive performances from the likes of Kieran Gibbs, Calum Chambers, Alex Iwobi and the Ox because the star man Alexis Sanchez scored the winner and set up the opener as well as being the best player on the pitch.
There have been Arsenal transfer rumours for the last two years about the Spanish left back Nacho Monreal making a possible return to his home country with a number of La Liga clubs linked. But earlier this month the reports began to filter through that Monreal was close to agreeing a new contract to stay at Arsenal and today that has been confirmed on the club’s official website.
Arsenal paid the price for being too passive and suicidal defending by KM
Hello fellow Gooners. I am highly disappointed with the fact we threw away the lead and I cannot accept the fact we did far too many defensive changes and we were hoping to just roll over the finishing line and with the way we defended we were punished. This almost happened against City, but we had a two goal lead there which saved us.
While this news will be welcomed with open arms by just about every Arsenal fan on the planet, it might not go down too well with the family and friends of a certain Mister Kieran Gibbs, because the England international is having a hell of a job getting a game for the Arsenal first team ahead of his Spanish team mate Nacho Monreal.
