I have often been accused of making excuses for a poor Arsenal result by blaming our bad luck, whether it be the usual injury crisis, some decisions by the referee, an unfavourable cup draw or just the general rub of the green. I am certainly not going to do that about the Gunners’ campaign in the Champions League so far though, as all our luck so far in Europe this season has been of the good variety.
Arsene Wenger was in now way suggesting that Arsenal should take it easy in our Champions League group game at home to PSG tonight, as he has called on his players to finish the job they have started by already securing a place in the next round by getting the result against the French champions to make sure that we finish on top of group A.

Arsenal are claimed to be pursuing deals to sign Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez and Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann, but I’m refusing to accept there is any truth in such, unless some concrete evidence arrives.
Arsenal appear to be desperate to bring in another striker this summer, and have so far failed to do so, and we thought we’d delve into the latest prices on us to land a number of targets.
Arsenal are in the hunt to bring in a new striker this summer, and have so far failed to do so, but does Wenger have a trump card in mind?
Our club was strongly linked with the capture of Alvaro Morata toward the end of last season, with Real said to be looking to trigger a buy-back clause, in order to sell him on for a profit.
Real Madrid’s Jese is supposedly in talks over a move to to either West Ham United or Southampton currently, while Arsenal and Liverpool have also been linked.
The Spanish striker appears to be surplus to requirements to Real boss Zinedine Zidane this season, and he is supposedly being offered out to clubs this summer.
