Arsenal 2 Southampton 0: A stroll in the sun for Gunners as they chase top four spot

It was a pretty professional display that saw Arsenal cruise to a comfortable win over Southampton on Sunday.

Arsenal vs Southampton: Let’s see some method in the madness

Although it’ll be a match played out in the comforts of home, I don’t expect Sunday’s visit of Southampton to be easy for Arsenal.

It’s been an up and down few weeks for the Gunners so, with a run of what might be called favourable fixtures ahead, it is an opportune time to build some momentum ahead … Continue reading Huddersfield vs Arsenal: Why it’s got to be three for Emery’s men

Decision to ignore defence is costing Arsenal dearly as top four hopes fade

If Arsenal are to stand any chance of making the top four this season they must stop conceding so many goals. It’s painfully obvious and painfully simple but it’s a situation that is showing no signs of being addressed. There is scarcely a team out there who we don’t allow a sight of our goal, … Continue reading Decision to ignore defence is costing Arsenal dearly as top four hopes fade
