New Arsenal striker to lead the line for England on Monday?

Normally for Arsenal fans, an international break means a couple of weeks of worry over which of our players are going to come back with an injury. There have usually been a few for us to contend with, bgut apart from Mesut Ozil and his minor ankle problem, it is so far so good for the Gunners.

And in a change from the norm, I would actually like to see one of the Arsenal players get used by his national coach as much as possible, which makes the report in The Mirror about Daniel Sturridge being likely to miss England’s Euro 2016 qualifier in Switzerland to be good news, in my book at least.

Bad News Arsenal, Man Utd look good! Good News, Liverpool look doomed!

It is just as well that Arsenal have ended the trophy drought with the FA cup last season and that the club is now ready to give Arsene Wenger the money to spend on some top players, because other wise I think that the Gunners’ long run of years in the Champions League would be over.

Once again the Premier League looks harder to win, as almost all of the top teams strengthen their squads and reinforce the theory that England has the best league in the world. I know that the likes of Bayern Munich and the La Liga giants of Barcelona and Real Madrid have dominated European competition lately, but apart from a few rare occasions, their domestic league campaigns are pretty predictable.

WOW! Arsenal don’t need to worry about Suarez after all

Arsene Wenger is well aware that Luis Suarez is not a bad little player, having tried and failed to bring him to Arsenal in the summer. And he has been speaking about the controversial Uruguayan striker in the build up to the Gunners’ trip to face Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.

In the interview, reported by Arsenal.com, the Frenchman played down any suggestion that he might try again to sign Suarez in the summer, preferring to concentrate on how Arsenal will go about doing the double over Brendan Rodgers. The Gunners are the only Premier League team to shut out the SAS pairing when they have started and doing so again would probably see us win the game. But keeping out the league’s most potent strike partnership is not going to be easy, so how do we do it?

Rooney rates Ozil but it’s Arsenal’s BFG he needs to worry about

Because of the hamstring injury suffered by Lukas Podolski earlier in the season, Arsenal have just two German internationals in contention to play the friendly against England at Wembley tomorrow night. The Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has been praising one of them, Mesut Ozil, ahead of the game, but he is worried about the wrong man.

The England international told the Daily Mirror
, “He’s a clever player, he doesn’t stick to one position.

“He moves along the line and behind opposition midfield and can score and assist goals so he is a fantastic players and a test for us to deal with.”

Arsenal vs. Liverpool Preview Prediction and Team News

Arsenal vs. Liverpool Preview by Anurag Thompson

After a disappointing League Cup exit at the hands of London rivals Chelsea, Arsenal welcome high-flying Liverpool to the Emirates stadium on Saturday. The Gunners will be looking to quickly bounce back from the midweek defeat but will have their hands full against a Liverpool side buoyed by the goal-scoring exploits of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez.

Vermaelen sure defence can stop SAS and keep Arsenal Top

It may be a bit simplistic to say, but Arsenal would probably not have lost the last two home games, against Dortmund and Chelsea, if they had not made key defensive errors. These proved very costly, just as they did last season, but in general the Gunners defensive pairing of Mertesacker and Koscielny have cut these out.

The man their performances are keeping out of the team, Thomas Vermaelen, has some encouraging words for Arsenal fans. He feels that the Gunners have what it takes to keep out the Premier League’s top scoring striker pairing of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge (The SAS!), as long as we don’t make any more of those errors, according to a Sky Sports report. The Belgian is not taking them lightly, he knows their qualities well, but he has faith in his team mates.

Arsenal Stats now show that Giroud IS better than van Persie

We all know that Olivier Giroud is doing much better for both Arsenal and France this year, and his headed goal against Crystal Palace on Saturday took him level with the goal machine that is Aaron Ramsey, at least as far as Premier League goals are concerned. Strangely, the two are also locked on the number of goal assists in the league with four each. With Mesut Ozil also in the top five on the assist table, it is easy to see why only Manchester City have scored more goals than the Gunners.

Is Arsenal star Ramsey really best in Premier League?

Aaron Ramsey has been a revelation for Arsenal since the latter part of last season, and the young Welshman was a huge part of the Gunners late surge which saw them overhaul north London rivals Tottenham for the final Champions League spot. Ramsey’s performances then were not getting a huge amount of attention, but by adding goals to his game, the midfielder has become the talk of the town, so just how good is he?

Suarez could come to Arsenal after all in January!!

Arsenal could return for Suarez in January! by Ash

Arsenal had arguably one of the best transfer windows in a long time when you look at their recent history, because for once we managed to retain all of our good quality players, whilst also spending correctly and although perhaps not efficiently, overall we made some very good additions in some important areas.

Liverpool battling for Benteke as Arsenal dither

It does not take a genius to work out that Christian Benteke would love to play for Arsenal Football Club. The 22-year old was talking about the Gunners after signing for Aston Villa from Genk on the last day of the transfer window last summer. His words could actually have caused some problems with the Birmingham club’s fans, but once he started playing and knocking the goals in, the Villa fans soon forgot about all that. It was clear back then, however, that he was not intending to be a Villa player for too long.

Arsenal star to get his chance for England?

Theo Walcott is proving his value to Arsenal with his goalscoring this season, whether playing from the right or through the middle, and he could be given the chance to show what he can do for England this week. The visit of Brazil to Wembley on Wednesday is a real glamour tie, and Walcott’s hopes of getting the chance to score were given a boost today from Daniel Sturridge.
