crystal palace vs arsenal   Leave a comment

Arsene Wenger side will look to overcome their mid-week Champions League defeat to carry on to the table top before a difficult month as they travel to the Selhurst Park. The game against Dortmund was breathtaking and could have gone either way, but the gunners lost the third consecutive champions league home game to a german team.

Match Facts
Arsenal came to their unbeaten run in the midweek game loss against Dortmund.
Arsenal are two points clear to the top of the Premier League table and are in an excellent form Crystal Palace have lost 5 consecutive games this season and they haven’t lost 6 games in succession since 2001.

THE GREATEST ARSENAL MANAGER SPEAKS

Dear Arsenal supporter,
Everybody was talking about Jack
Wilshere’s goal after Saturday’s
game against Norwich City and it
was certainly one of the best goals
I’ve ever seen.
I especially enjoyed it because it
was a team goal. It had combinations
and the speed which you always like
your team to play with. There was a
mixture of technical quality, quick
thinking, quick reactions and
calmness in front of goal. It was a
great, improvised goal.
We won the game 4-1 but you can’t
say that it was completely
comfortable, even though Norwich’s
keeper was busy. They played well
and at 1-0 and then 2-1 they gave
us some difficult moments.
I was asked in my post-match press
conference whether this Arsenal
team reminds me of the team that
went unbeaten in 2003/04 and of
course it’s much too early to make
comparisons like that.
But I must say we have a good
attitude, we are hungry, and we
have a good solidarity level. We
certainly get that as well from the
fans, who have been right behind us.
We clearly have quality, but how far
we will go is down to how consistent
we can be, how much effort we put
into every single game and how
careful we are not to get into a
comfort zone. You have to avoid
that at the top level.
Self-belief is important and of
course it is strengthened by every
win. In recent years we have been
playing catch-up so it’s good to lead
from the front this season. But
there is a long way to go so let’s
just focus on developing as a team
and keeping our solidarity.
A quick word on Mathieu Flamini,
who went off on Saturday. He had
concussion, so on the advice of the
doctor I took him off because I did
not want to take any gamble. As a
result of the concussion, he cannot
play against Dortmund, but he
should be OK for Saturday.
Even without Mathieu we have
plenty of midfielders and, with
seven games in 23 days, we will
need everybody. I will juggle my
options and everybody will play.
Thanks for your support on
Saturday. Get behind the team again
for what should be a great game
against Dortmund later today.

Arsenal vs Borrussia Dortmund *champions league*   Leave a comment

Arsenal are turning the
toughest looking Champions League
group into a walk in the park so far
and they would take a huge stride
towards their customary place in the
last 16 with victory over Borussia
Dortmund on Tuesday.
“We have two very difficult games
coming up against Dortmund,” Arteta
told Arsenal`s website
(www.arsenal.com).
These two sides also
met twice in the group stages of the
Champions League in 2011 when a
Robin van Persie brace secured a
home win for the Gunners while a
stunning late equalizer from Ivan
Perisic secured one point for Dortmund in the return fixture.News on the injury front for Dortmund is not very encouraging though as the likes of Lukas Piszczek and Ilkay Gundogan will miss out with long term injury worries while the likes of Marcel Schmelzer and Sebastien Kehl are also doubtful having not fully recovered from their injuries.
Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen
Klopp tips Arsenal as the favourites for the Premier League title ahead of the Champions League meeting between the two sides although this may be seen as the manager playing a mind game and setting his site on piling us pressure on the north london team.
Arsene wenger is a happy man at the moment with all things working for him. The return of last season best performer in the form of santi Carzola is a welcome development while the duo of Jack and Ramsey are doing wonderfully well with jack grabbing what has been dubbed goal of the century on saturday against Norwich.

Arsene Wenger says Arsenal are brimming with belief and won’t lose focus with Liverpool and Manchester United in their sights   Leave a comment

hope we win against Dortmund

Metro

Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal can only get better as they continue to compile victories in pursuit of the Premier League title.

The Gunners recorded their sixth success from eight top-flight outings when they beat Norwich 4-1 at the Emirates Stadium, with club-record signing Mesut Ozil scoring twice.

Jack Wilshere, with an absolute beauty, and Aaron Ramsey were also on target, with  Jonny Howson netting for the Canaries.

Victory kept the north London team on top of the table, two points ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool and three clear of Manchester City.

But Arsenal manager Wenger has stressed that his side cannot afford to lose focus with matches against Liverpool and Manchester United looming on the immediate horizon.

arsenal vs norwich preview   Leave a comment

The international break is finally over as attention shifts to various domestic leagues as teams prepare to strengthen their positions on the league table.
In the Barclays premier league Arsenal who are on top of the league will be hosting Norwich city at the emirate.
Arsene wenger while addressing the audience at Arsenal AGM says our dream is to finally end the trophy drought which has endured for eight years.
Arsenal FC
Arsene Wenger could have Santi
Cazorla, Theo Walcott and Lukas
Podolski back in time to face norwich while Tomas
Rosicky withdrew from the Czech
Republic squad in midweek due to a
problem but will most likely be available. Mesut
Ozil was forced off in Germany’s game
against Sweden with a
knee injury and is a doubt but the injury is believed to be minor and not as to the extent of the level of fear.
Alex
Oxlade-Chamberlain, Bacary Sagna
and Abou Diaby look the likeliest to miss out
due to injuries.
The exciting young duo of Jack
Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey look set
to start in midfield with Frenchman
Mathieu Flamini doing the mopping up.
Tomas Rosicky could be handed a
start if Ozil does not recover in time
for the clash and it will be interesting
to see if Wenger decides to hand the
returning Cazorla, Walcott and
Podolski a start.
Olivier Giroud will be leading the line
with Carl Jenkinson continuing at
right-back in place of Bacary Sagna.

Norwich City FC
Anthony Pilkington was withdrawn
from the Republic of Ireland squad
due to knock but should be available
for Chris Hughton on Saturday. Elliott
Bennett is the only other injury
concern for the Canaries.
Chris Hughton fielded a five-man
midfield against Chelsea and a similar
tactic may be adopted against Chelsea
as well. The trio of Alexander Tettey,
Leroy Fer and Jonny Howson could
lineup in midfield with Robert
Snodgrass and Anthony Pilkington
providing the support from the wings
to the lone striker.
Ricky van Wolfswinkel has not found
the net in more than eight hours of
Premier League football and could be
dropped in favour of new signing Gary
Hooper in attack. Russell Martin,
Sebastian Bassong, Michael Turner
and Martin Olsson look set to start in
defence in front of John Ruddy.

Looking forward to a sweet home win
