Arsenal’s Koscielny refusing to give on Champions League hopes

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has refused to rule out a possible dream comeback against Bayern Munich, despite a disastrous loss in Germany.

The Gunners succumbed to a devastating 5-1 defeat last night, and now face a dreading three week wait until they get the chance to try and save face with their own win in London.

Half-time + video: Arsenal lucky to lead Swansea

Arsenal take a 1-0 lead into the break thanks to Olivier Giroud, but I cant help but want to thank Mike Jones.

Swansea have come into this game fired up, and had much the better chances in the opening 45, and will be frustrated to have come into the interval a goal down.

Arsenal defender targeting Premier League top spot

Laurent Koscielny is refusing to give up hope of helping Arsenal to overcome Chelsea and their rivals in the Premier League title race.

The Gunners fought to a 1-0 win over West Brom today, following two successive defeats to Everton and Manchester City, with Olivier Giroud earning us all three points with a crucial winner.

Gunners have game to cope with latest injury blow

Just because Arsenal always seem to have a long list of players in the treatment room does not make it any easier for the fans to see one of our regular first team players like Shkodran Mustafi pick up an injury. And it was clear that the Germany international star had done his hamstring, something Arsene Wenger confirmed and suggested would see the defender miss about a month according to a report in The Mirror.

Only two Arsenal stars in best EPL team – NOT who you think

With Arsenal having so far during the current season further increased our reputation for playing fluent and attractive football that is often more focused on the creative and attacking side of the game, you might think that the Arsenal players most likely to have made the Premier League team of the season so far would be from that side of the team.

Wenger blames derby draw on Arsenal nerves and poor penalty call

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.

Is Gunners legend being too harsh on Arsenal defence?

Arsenal do not have the best defence in the Premier League, in terms of goals conceded at least, with 10 going into our net so far in 10 EPL games. But that is only one more than two of our main title rivals Man City and Chelsea and three fewer than another one Liverpool.

Mustafi explains double dynamism in Arsenal defence

Arsenal have had some very strong central defensive pairings over the years, perhaps more notably back in the days when that was seen as the strongest part of our game, which gave rise to the famous chant of ‘1-0 to the Arsenal’. Even in the two decades with Arsene Wenger as our manager, with the Frenchman giving the Gunners into a much more attack minded, exciting and creative type of football.
