Two consecutive draws against Brighton and Crystal Palace in the past two league matches that are winnable considering the opponents, has seen Arsenal's momentum drop slightly in the race to catch up with the big Six. Without European Football, the Gunners resume their league battle when they play host to Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium on Friday Night.
The English Premier League week-9 fixtures saw Arsenal FC host Aston Villa at Emirates Stadium and the match ended in a 3-1 win for the London club, which was Arsenal's 4th EPL win of the season. In this article, I will be talking about six Arsenal players that were outstanding in the match.
The gunners were only able to secure their first 3 points and the first goal of the new EPL season in a slim 1-0 victory against newly-promoted Norwich after three straight defeats to Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City. This remains the worst record to a season for the gunners since the 1954/55 season.
Brighton began Match Day 6 of the Premier League in fourth place, with a chance to go top, but they will finish the week in sixth place, ahead of their home game against Arsenal. The hosts come into this game with 13 points, while Arsenal are in 10th place with nine points.
After being held to a 2-2 draw the last time out against Crystal Palace, Mikel Arteta's side will be hoping to gain maximum points when they face Aston Villa at Emirates Stadium later tonight. Ahead of the game, Mikel Arteta will have to make crucial decisions based on which of his players are absent.
Arsenal will play their second game of the week, a Premier League home fixture against Aston Villa, in the hopes of getting back on track. The Gunners are in 12th place with 11 points, one place and a point ahead of Aston Villa, who they face on Match Day 9.
Arsenal's defeat to Chelsea guaranteed they got off to a terrible start in the 2021/22 season, with no goals and no points from their first two games, making it the worst start to a league season in the club's history. Entering the Carabao Cup at the second round stage may be the ideal platform to turn a corner, or at the very least, instil some much-needed confidence, ahead of a daunting trip to champions Manchester City.
West Bromwich Albion will look to build on their strong start to the season when they face an Arsenal side that is out of form in the League Cup's second round. Both teams had dismal seasons in the Premier League last season by their standards, but West Bromwich Albion, who were relegated, have made a strong start to the new season.
Arsenal Football Club will be traveling to the Etihad Stadium to face Premier League Champions, Manchester City for a match day 3 encounter. The match promises to be a tough one as the Gunners will be aiming to secure their first points of the season while Man City will hope to make it 2 wins out of 3.
Arsenal have been in great form in recent performances. They have played their last 5 games without losing any of them (3 wins and 2 draws). This shows that Arteta has been doing a great job and I believe he will take Arsenal to the old glory days.
Arsenal head to Brighton on Saturday evening, fresh off a decisive victory in the north London derby. Here is my predicted line-up for the match. GOALKEEPER & DEFENDERS: Aaron Ramsdale (GK): An arrival from further north that sparked initial scepticism has quickly removed a trusty number one in a similar tale of Arsenal keepers gone by.
Manchester City hammered Mikel Arteta's team 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon, putting a cowardly Arsenal to the sword. The defending Premier League winners took an early lead, with Gabriel Jesus crossing for Ilkay Gundogan to tap home from close range after only six minutes.
Arsenal earned a point against Brighton with a 0-0 draw on a rain-soaked evening of sport. The Gunners started well, but were fortunate to overcome an onslaught of Brighton raids. Here are my three observations from the match. 1. Marc Cucurella Performed Admirably: Takehiro Tomiyasu has made a fantastic start to his Arsenal career, proving to be a defensively sound player who has helped the Gunners go on a winning streak.
Manchester City responded in typical fashion after their opening round loss by thrashing Norwich, their second-straight 5-0 home win and a result which prompted boss Pep Guardiola to joke that his team were now "scary" after being "written off" the week before. Nonetheless, that win extended their run of inconsistent performances starting from the backend of last season that's seen them alternate wins and losses over their last seven Premier League (PL) rounds.
Arsenal played the final game of the Premier League today as they travelled to face Brighton at the AMEX Stadium on Saturday night. Both sides couldn't secure all three points from today's match as they settled for a goalless draw at full-time. Well, here are the three things I observed from today's Premier League match involving Arsenal and Brighton.
When you thought Arsenal is back to their best they disappoint you with another shambolic performance. Today's Match was total annihilation and decimation of a 'near dead' Arsenal team managed by an inexperienced coach. Arsenal under the reign of Mikel Arteta has been a pain to watch as each day, each match and each game ends in disgrace and disappointment.
1. Going All Out Against Man City. One of the things that contributed to Arsenal losing 5-0 against Man City was their tactics. Mikel Arteta set up his side to press Manchester City high up the pitch in the opening stages of the game. The purpose of this approach might have been to kill off any attacking threat Manchester City might have posed at the roots but it failed woefully.
Aston Villa's recent performances have been worrying as they usually draw or lose their games. Aston Villa's coach, Dean Smith, needs to take some action because their performances are not so good and encouraging. In yesterday's game, Aston Villa went to the Emirates stadium to play against Arsenal, but unfortunately for them, they lost again.
Apparently, Arsenal continued their unbeaten run since the month of September, as they defeated Aston Villa 3-1 at the Emirates yesterday. Of course, the Gunners keep making progress in their performances, regarding their displays so far in the Premier League. Frankly, the North London club pressed the Lions well last night, because they had 14 shots and 2.45 xG in the first-half.
A blockbuster fixture went down in the premier league today as Manchester City welcomed Arsenal to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Gunners suffered their 3rd straight defeat in the premier league this season as they were thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City today. Ilkay Gundogan opened the scoring in the 7th minute of the encounter as he found the back of the net with a brilliant header to put Manchester City 1-0 ahead.
