Arsenal find themselves listed as 4/5 favourites for their Premier League trip to Hull as The Gunners look to grab a decisive advantage in the race for fourth.

The Premier League has been full of twists and turns all season long but the most interesting week of the season so far could end on a dramatic high as Hull host Arsenal in a preview of next month’s FA Cup final.

Hull are enjoying a good late spell in the season and Steve Bruce’s side will be looking to get a win which would all but kill off any threats of relegation.

The Tigers will be much stronger than the side that appeared against Sheffield United with regular attackers Nikita Jelavic and Shane Long returning to the squad after being cup-tied for last Sunday’s semi-final, and their price of 7/2 could be a shrewd investment.

After impressing last week, Brown could also be tempted to start Tom Huddlestone and David Meyler in midfield after both players played a pivotal role in the 5-3 win against The Blades last weekend.

There will be no doubt that Bruce will want to end Hull’s recent bad form against The Gunners having lost the last five encounters against their FA Cup final opponents.

It won’t be easy though as Arsenal will arrive at The KC Stadium looking to record back to back wins in the league for the first in over a month as they look to keep fourth after regaining it on Tuesday.

It’s likely that Arsene Wenger will stick with the similar squad that beat West Ham 3-1 on Tuesday night although playmaker Mesut Ozil could be back in the squad after recovering from a hamstring injury.

With both Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud finding the back of the net in midweek, Wenger has hinted that they could both start on Sunday afternoon in a traditional 4-4-2 formation rather than Arsenal’s familiar 4-3-3 set-up.

It’s a move that could pay dividends with The Gunners knowing that winning all of their remaining games would be enough for them to secure a spot in the Champions League for a 18th consecutive year.

There will be a lot of importance riding on Sunday’s game so don’t be surprised to see both Hull and Arsenal treating it like a cup final even though their Wembley clash doesn’t happen for another four weeks.

Arsenal will NOT sack manager Unai Emery despite worst start in 37 years

Published

on

Arsenal are reportedly going to back manager Unai Emery 100% and will not give him the boot, despite the Gunners’ worst start to a top-flight season since 1982.

This comes following a bitterly disappointing 2-0 defeat to top-four rivals Leicester City on Saturday, which helped confirm Arsenal’s terrible start even further.

The Gunners currently sit in 6th place of the Premier League table, having only amassed 17 points in 12 games and have only won four out of those games.

Unai Emery’s side have benefited from the fact that their rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United have had worse starts than them.

The Spanish coach is one of the favourites to be the next manager to be sacked, with the bookies’ odds at 2/1 – only Southampton manager Ralph Hassenhutl has shorted odds of being sacked.

With that being said, it is reported that Arsenal’s board of directors are happy with the former Paris Saint-Germain manager and feel that results will turn around under his leadership.

The Gunners’ hierarchy viewed the fixture against Leicester a very competitive one in which Emery’s men showed positive signs of improvement.

The directors, which includes the likes of owner Stan Kroenke and his son Josh as well as head of football Raul Sanllehi and technical director Edu, notice the fans displeasure in Arsenal’s performances under Emery and are vary of the talk surrounding the Spaniard.

However, they will not act and make decisions based on the noise surrounding the coach and the performances of the team.

The Gunners have been in terrible form over the last five games in all competitions- three draws and two losses.

The draws came against considerable weaker opponents in Vitoria, Wolves and Crystal Palace, whereas their losses were against better opposition in Leicester and Liverpool.

Yet, Liverpool featured a heavily inexperienced line-up as it was a round of 16 Carabao Cup tie in which Jurgen Klopp’s men managed to steal a win on a penalty shoot-out.

Emery signed with Arsenal ahead of the start of the 2018-19 season and took over the legendary Arsene Wenger.

The 48-year-old signed a three-year deal and stated that he preferred to win 5-4 rather 1-0 in a bid to carry on the legacy that his predecessor left.

However, with a full season already under the belt as well as ample backing in the summer transfer window, the former Sevilla coach has yet to implement a clear style of play.

Reports have come out suggesting that Emery cannot translate his ideas to his players possibly due to the fact that English is a foreign language for him.

Tension with the highest earner at the club and one of the star players in Mesut Ozil, as well as the huge substitution affair with Granit Xhaka, has added huge pressure on Emery’s shoulders.

Fans seem divided on Emery’s ability to lead and the Spaniard will have to turn around the results and performances in order to ease the pressure off.

Arsenal after another Lille forward?

Published

on

Moussa Sow is yet another Lille forward who seems to have attracted the interest of ArsenalReports are claiming that Arsenal maybe tempted into making a second transfer trip to Lille in an effort to lure Moussa Sow to the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners already took Gervinho from the Stade Lille-Metropole in the summer which would make Sow the second striker that they have taken from the Ligue 1 champions within a year.

The Senegalese international isn’t the sort of player that the North London side would usually go for at the age of 25 but they could be discovering that youth isn’t everything, as they look to return to the dominant side they were a decade ago.

Sow boasts a fantastic goalscoring record with Lille, scoring 28 times in 45 appearances since his 2010 move from Rennes.

Arsenal are currently leaving striking duties almost totally up to Robin van Persie in recent months with Gervinho, Andrey Arshavin and Theo Walcott pitching in as well.

The Dutchman is conflicted however and is currently stalling on his contract talks, not wanting to commit to the club before seeing how events pan out.

Gervinho is taking his time to settle into English football and Sow could provide ample support to van Persie, relieving some of the pressure on the captain’s shoulders.

It’s unknown how much Sow would cost after he moved to Lille on a free transfer last year, but it would surely be in excess of £15m.

Lyon left-back top priority for Wenger after Clichy departure

Published

on

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is to make Lyon left-back Aly Cissokho his prime target for that position after the departure of Gael Clichy to Manchester City.

The 23 year old has been heavily linked with a move to the Premiership but is not so keen on joining Liverpool, a side without European competition for the up and coming season.

With Wenger’s love for all things French, he would certainly be choosing a player with right attributes.

Our source also claims that Cissokho is the player Wenger admires more and that Arsenal will not seek to pursue current Newcastle United left-back Jose Enrique – a target of Liverpool. It is also believed that the Emirates side have made enquiries for the defender and that a fee of £9m-£11m would close to accurate to seal the 23 year old.
