The end of this current season will see two of Arsenal´s key players enter the final two years of their contracts and that is something that Arsene Wenger and the club are determined to not let happen anymore with our best players, after we were forced to say goodbye to stars like Robin van Persie in the past.
It is a tricky situation and certainly a worrying one for Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger. The manager of the Chile national team, Jorge Sampaoli, has already given the Gunners a fright this week by admitting that he played our star striker for the full 90 minutes against Brazil in a World Cup qualifying match, despite knowing that he was not fully fit and so was at risk of aggravating the injury Alexis picked up during the Premier League win over Manchester United.
Well the first round of international games are over and we will have to do it all again in midweek, but so far so good as we have not picked up any new injuries yet (touch wood!). All the latest injury news concerns events that happened in England though, and it appears that both Matthieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta are both going to be fit to face Watford next weekend.
Arsenal’s energy-filled striker Alexis Sanchez had a brilliant summer as he helped Chile to win the Copa America, and he helped his team pass another milestone in Santiago last night by beating the Brazilians for the first time in 15 years.
Lots of topics as Arsenal spared Man United a true humiliation by KM
Well Well! Happy weekend everybody. What a way to end your Sunday having Man United destroyed at the Emirates, and then go off to the pub to have a well deserved drink and mock those United fans. I mean when you are a foreign fan, there are usually more Man United fans around than there are Tottenham ones and you just hate United more than anybody else.
An absolutely brilliant performance from Arsenal against Man United yesterday lifted us up to second in the Premier League table, and broke our duck against our great rivals in the League. After flying into a 3-0 lead with two brilliant goals from Sanchez, including a back-heel that reminded me of a Gianfranco Zola goal that was once Goal-Of-The-Season, and an easy Ozil finish after being set up by Walcott.
Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez began the Premier League season slow. The Copa America success that he enjoyed with Chile during the summer appeared to have taken its toll early on. However, with a hat-trick against Leicester in the league last weekend and a goal and assist in the Champions League on Tuesday, the 26-year-old now appears back to his typical best.
Luck? Responsibility? Excuses? It’s Judgement Time Arsene… by KM
Hi Guys. I’m back here on JustArsenal once again because I’m related to Arsenal, not because they pay me 8 millions a year to do nothing, but because as every die-hard fan of the club I feel like something isn’t right. And I take the sucker punches at work and I open Skysports to see Wenger’s interview after the game and I’m shocked.
