Westham vs Arsenal *preview* london derby   1 comment

The Irons have
only won one out of their last five
Premier League games and have
struggled to score goals.
The Hammers were expected to claim
a victory against bottom of the table
Sunderland in their last Premier
League outing, but could only manage
a goalless draw against their fellow
strugglers.
The Gunners also drew their last
outing 0-0 with Chelsea at the
Emirates Stadium on Monday night.
The result took Arsenal to second in
the Premier League, behind league
leaders only on goal difference.
The draw made it four games without a
win for the Gunners in all
competitions, the side from north
London drawing two and losing one of
the top-flight games and losing at
Napoli in the Champions League.
However, with leaders Liverpool
facing a tough trip to Manchester City
in the late kick-off, the Gunners could
regain top spot with a victory against
the Hammers.
Arsene Wenger’s men will also be
encouraged by their record against
the Hammers at Boleyn Ground in
recent years, the Gunners having won
on five of their last six visits to the
East End. Arsenal have also won the
last five games against the Hammers
in all competitions.
West Ham have lost eight and won
none of their last 10 Premier
League games against Arsenal.
Theo Walcott has scored in his last
three Barclays Premier League
appearances against West Ham.
This is Arsenal’s 100th London
derby away from home in the
Premier League and the Gunners
have won 44 out of 99; more
victories on the road than any other
team in capital clashes.

dortmund vs Arsenal   Leave a comment

Arsenal silence a quarter of their critic last saturday as they beat second place Liverpool 2-0 at the emirate. Among the yet to be won over is the Match of the Day pundit and former Premier League winner
has rubbished claims that the
Gunners can win the league,
stating that they haven’t played
one of the ‘big 3’ yet.
Dortmund face Arsenal this week in
what will be the second of their two
Champions League group stage
encounters, having emerged
victorious at the Emirates Stadium a
fortnight ago.
Klopp’s side did not have it all their
own way in London, with Arsenal
enjoying plenty of the ball and
creating numerous chances. However,
Dortmund’s high-intensity and
strength in transitions won through,
earning a 2-1 victory.
Arsenal will go into the intimidating
Westfalen Stadion confident they can
regain control of their Champions
League group.
Arsene Wenger’s team looked to be
cruising towards qualification for the
knockout round going into the home
clash with Borussia Dortmund.
Dortmund are in terrific form coming
in to this game on a back of a 6-1
drubbing of Stuttgart in the German
Bundesliga and Jurgen Klopp will look
to make the home advantage count
against a solid Arsenal side.
Arsenal have been a bit unpredictable
in their last couple games but will go
into this game with renewed
confidence after beating a strong
Liverpool side 2-0 in the League on
the back of defeats to Chelsea and
Dortmund at home in Cup competitions.
The lack of options in various areas
of the pitch for Arsene Wenger though
will be a huge concern for the
Gunners’ management going into this
midweek game.

Wenger: ‘We were never reallyin trouble’Dear Arsenal supporter,We gave a controlledperformance on Saturday andcompletely dominated thegame.I thought we played with agood pace in the first halfbefore dropping slightly in thesecond half, but we werenever really in trouble.
