They may be rivals for a place in the Arsenal first team, but the veteran keeper Petr Cech and his young understudy in the Arsenal squad Emilio Martinez seem to get on pretty well if the picture of the two shown below is anything to go by.
Although it would seem that most JustArsenal readers have given up on the Gunners winning the title, the fact remains that there are still 27 points up for grabs and the race is far from over. For Arsenal that means that every single game is a must-win from now on, starting with Everton today, and the Toffees manager Roberto Martinez sees no reason why Arsenal’s experience can’t take us back into the hunt.
Some Arsenal fans might be expecting Arsene Wenger to rest one or two key players today, with the recent injury picked up by Aaron Ramsey bringing to our minds the risk of this with most of the Arsenal first team having played almost every Premier League and Champions League game as well as the international games for their various countries.
Other than Arsenal having won their last four games without conceding a goal, they are a frightening team to face on any normal day, but Everton have got to not just overcome the Gunners, they also have to overcome a 20 year inferiority complex when it comes to away games against Arsenal.
Was this summer Wengers biggest mistake? by JH
The start of the summer was great, we finally had ourselves a world class keeper, for the first time in many, many years. Petr Cech signing for £10 million seemed like the transfer of the summer at the time. Arsenals weakest link had become one of our strongest, a true star to go along with Ozil and Sanchez.
Arsenal forward Chuba Akpom who is currently with Hull City on a season-long loan deal is hoping that he can grab his opportunity to show his ability. The teenager feels that coming on loan to Hull has given him chances to impress Arsene Wenger and build towards becoming a first-team regular at the Emirates. Today he is aiming to score his third goal in three games for the Tigers in the big away game at Wolves, but he will have to get past the Gunners third-choice keeper Emi Martinez, who featured in the midweek League Cup win. Isaac Hayden is also expected to start for Hull.
Is Arsenal’s transfer policy simply smoke and mirrors?by ED
Alexandre Lacazette of Lyon is reportedly offered to Arsenal. The young forward is a talented attacker and would provide a different option in attack to Arsene Wenger.
