Arsenal player ratings for Man Utd draw – Koscielny MOTM

Although Arsenal responded well to a poor first half to get a deserved equalising goal through Theo Walcott, I think the main reason we came away from Old Trafford with a point was that we only conceded once while Man United were all over us, so I am giving the Man of the Match to Laurent Koscielny who just shaded Mertesacker.

Coquelin CAN foil Fellaini and Arsenal can BEAT Man Utd

Although a first defeat in 13 games for Arsenal will have been a big blow to the happiness and belief of the Arsenal fans, it has only seemingly caused a small scratch to the veneer of confidence that the players have got from our excellent 2015 so far.

Koscielny to be new Arsenal captain?

With Arsenal showing a new defensive solidity to add to the great attacking flair and ability to keep the ball and create chances, and perhaps looking for a new club captain at the same time, as the current man with the armband Mikel Arteta is getting old and not playing much, you might think that the current vice captain Per Mertesacker would be the player to get the nod from Arsene Wenger.

It’s GREAT to see Arsenal players FULL of confidence!

I am sure that there will be plenty of people ready to criticise the current Arsenal players for talking about winning the Premier League title, but I am not so sure it is such a bad thing really.

BFG baffled but buzzing over awesome Arsenal form

Some of the football that Arsenal produced as we beat Hull City at the KC stadium on Monday night was simply stunning. Moments of magic like Ozil’s audacious flick, Cazorla’s pinged pass to Ramsey or the Welshman’s wonder ball to Alexis were three of the most memorable but there was plenty of good stuff from the Gunners throughout.

How second place will make Arsenal’s transfer window easier….

Considering how Arsenal played in the first two months of this season, it seems like a dream to see us going ten games unbeaten at this moment, and only needing five more wins to secure second place in the Premier League and a repeat success in the FA Cup Final.

BFG fit again but should Arsenal START him against Chelsea?

As well as the verbal sparring and not so subtle digs between the Arsenal boss and his counterpart at Chelsea, there is a very important game of football to consider. And although both teams have players like Ozil, Giroud, Alexis, Ramsey, Oscar. Fabregas and Hazard, with the quality to turn a game with a moment of brilliance, it could well be that the tactical battle between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho proves to be the deciding factor.

Why BFG injury is NOT bad news for Arsenal

It now looks certain that the Arsenal vice-captain Per Mertesacker will have to sit out the next game for the Gunners. But even though our next match is the crucial top of the table Premier League clash with Chelsea, I still do not think that we need to worry too much about the loss of the German with a minor ankle problem, as reported by The Mirror.
