Is Zaha really being considered to replace Arsenal’s Sanchez?

Wilfried Zaha is supposedly being eyed by Arsenal as a possible replacement for Alexis Sanchez.

The Crystal Palace midfielder has been a rare positive for their relegation-threatened side, with the winger contributing two of their four league goals so far this campaign.

Big market jump tells us Wilshere close to Roma move?

The odds have plummeted for Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere to make a surprise move to Roma on loan this summer, a deal I did not believe was likely.

Overnight, Jack was claimed to have agreed a deal to join Crystal Palace on a season-long loan, but when the clubs got to work this morning, it was supposedly a straight fight between Bournemouth and the Eagles.

The finishing let Arsenal down, not the manager

The #WengerOut brigade is out in full force today, but I’m one fan who is not placing the blame solely on the manager’s shoulders.

Dont expect Arsenal to get an easy ride against Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace make the trip across London tomorrow to take on Arsenal at the Emirates tomorrow, and on paper we look an easy bet to win.

If Alexis plays like this half-fit…….?

The build-up to Arsenal’s weekend game against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park was around the impending return of Alexis Sanchez to the Gunners’ starting line-up. The Chilean was given extra time to get himself fit after his exertions in Copa America, but he was very quickly thrown into the action.

Hang on! Coquelin has IMPROVED since last season!

The Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin enjoyed an excellent breakthrough campaign last term. Had Arsene Wenger finally found the midfield jigsaw piece that he had been missing since the departure of captain Patrick Vieira in 2005?

Arsenal are back in the title race!

It was a hard-fought victory against Crystal Palace today, but Olivier Giroud’s first goal was a quality moment and may quieten his critics for a couple of weeks at least! The Frenchman comes in for stick in nearly every game he plays, especially if Arsenal don’t win.

Arsenal under even more pressure to beat Crystal Palace

How quickly can things change! At the beginning of the season, Arsenal were mooted strong contenders for the Premier League crown. But, their disastrous start against West Ham United suddenly put the spotlight back on them. Everyone is questioning the credentials of the team and their ability to win the title.
