Did Sunday’s defeat tee Arsenal up for more misery against City?

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has claimed that Sunday’s cup final defeat was direct reason for our dismal opening interval against Manchester City.

The Gunners succumbed to a distressing 3-0 loss at the Emirates Stadium, while many fans didn’t even make it to the match.

Wenger asks for perspective – Well here is some from an Arsenal fan

Since the Gunners meekly surrendered to Manchester City in the Caraboa Cup Final on Sunday, all the Arsenal rumours this week have been about possible replacements for Arsene Wenger if he gets the sack before the end of the season, so it is no surprise that the boss was asked about his future at today’s press conference for our rematch against Pep Guardiola’s side.

Can Maitland-Niles oust Granit Xhaka from Arsenal role?

Ainsley Maitland-Niles made his first start of the season in a midfield role last night, and thoroughly impressed in his ‘natural position’ according to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

The versatile youngster has been amongst our most consistent performers this season, and has already ousted Sead Kolasinac from the starting line-up despite the summer signing quickly becoming a fans favourite earlier in the campaign.

Would a new contract for Arsene Wenger cause chaos at Arsenal?

Arsenal are supposedly considering offering Arsene Wenger an extension to his contract, but a growing number of fans will surely be against the idea.

The Frenchman is the Premier League’s longest serving boss notching up over 21 years within his current role, but is thoroughly expected to step-down from said role in the coming years.

Arsenal boss confirms front partners for Europa League clash

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that both Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck will be part of Arsenal’s attack against Ostersund.

Do Arsenal’s back-line deserve Wenger’s defence?

Martin Keown claimed that the Arsenal defence lacked the hunger to take on Harry Kane this afternoon, only for Arsene Wenger to refute such claims. The Gunners succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of rivals Tottenham today, with Harry Kane proving to be the difference between the two sides, with his goal on the 49th minute deciding the game. But that result was actually perfect for me as I had used a Unibet bonuskod to back on a draw at half-time, although I thought Arsenal would show a bit more fight in the second period.

Should Arsenal prioritise Europa League over PL spot?

Arsene Wenger has insisted that he is not ready to prioritise the European competition over the Premier League, but should he reconsider?

‘Arsenal should have had match won at half-time’?

Arsene Wenger has claimed that Arsenal should have put the game against Spurs to bed in the first-half, but I think that is a little over the top considering our record against the Top Four sides in the last couple of seasons. In fact you would have had to be crazy to bet on Arsenal in this game even if you had a Ladbrokes bonus code to play with! Our boys limped to a dismal defeat against our noisy neighbours this afternoon, and I can’t think of anything more painful to watch than that second half display.
