Arsenal’s defensive shortcomings were mercilessly exposed in their 5-1 scoring by Liverpool on Saturday; however, it had been coming through all season. The numbers make troubling perusing for Emery’s side. It is another period for Arsenal yet the same old difficulties remain. Emery Unai said that Saturday’s outing to Anfield would be a “decent test” of his progress in this new season, yet it is safer to say they are fizzled it. In the same stadium, the old place The Gunners have now yielded 22 goals among past 6 trips. The last failure was the most disappointing among all. As featuring the inlet that still exists among Arsenal and the first class, the result tossed their issues of sharp focus and crippling defensive problem. Arsenal has gained additional goals after 20 games (30) than any of last League Premier Crusade. They involve fifth place in the table yet just seven Premier League parts have the most disappointing history.
Liverpool was scientific, representing the impressive characters that made the Premier League title most liked, yet all of their five goals highlighted no less than one mistake of defense with respect to the visitors. Beginning with the first two goals that happened in 90 seconds separated in a capitulation reminiscent of Arsenel Wenger’s previous years in control, were possibly the poorest. Arsenal’s pains to stopover Liverpool were disastrous, their self-protective execution exemplified by the amusing sight of prone on the lawn as Firmino sends in second. Before the end, the visitors had run battered, giving up on basic balls in midfield and surrendering two unnecessary penalties. Read More

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has refused to be critical about Petr Cech’s performance despite the goalkeeper struggling to cope with the new style of play. The 36-year-old does not possess ball-playing attributes as one of his key strengths and this has created several nervy moments including one at Cardiff where he gifted Harry Arter a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Petr has experience, he is intelligent, he is doing it how we want in building up our work on the pitch. Read More
The new news in Arsenal transfers includes the latest on future of Danny Welbeck. With Welbeck having returned to the Arsenal after his extended summer break, his future with the club still looked to be decided. It was widely rumoured that the new head coach of the Gunners, Unai Emery, had made it clear to this England international that from his end, he was free to leave if he wishes to secure regular first-team football, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette over of him in the pecking order at the Emirates.
The talks in this regard continued all through the pre-season at London Colney between Arsenal, Welbeck and his advisors – and it seems that there was interest from many clubs of the Premier League about a potential switch, though most of the clubs that contacted Arsenal for the transfer were interested in a loan move only for the striker – something that the north Londoners were not keen to allow, taking into consideration that he is now in his final year of contract.
The move never quite happened though, and whilst Arsenal may have an embarrassment of riches upfront, it is difficult to see Welbeck get many starts – even though this website says that he is one of the main reasons fans buy tickets to watch Arsenal in action at the Emirates, with his speed and skill inspiring supporters of all ages.
It has now been decided that Danny Welbeck will remain at Emirates and will fight for his position in the team with Lacazette, Eddie Nketiah and Aubameyang unless a considerable cash offer comes from a European club by the end of this month. On Thursday, Welbeck was trained with the remaining team members at the London Colney as he is trying to build-up his fitness levels after the summer break.
At the same time, Welbeck must be thankful that the rumoured £90 million bid for Ousmane Dembele was not at all true – reports came out in Spain that the Gunners had launched what would have been the record of the club for the France international, but they turned out to be false.
Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck has tipped Jack Wilshere to go on to the next level after leaving the Emirates Stadium. The England striker said he was gutted to see him teammate leave the north London club but then he understood the reason for the decision.
Wilshere explained that despite the club offering him a reduced contract offer due to his fitness situation, the incoming manager Unai Emery told him clearly that he would have considerable playing time so he decided to leave Arsenal. Read More
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Danny Welbeck is one of four stars ruled out of contention until after the upcoming international break. Back-up goalkeeper David Ospina and defenders Calum Chambers and Shkodran Mustafi make up the remainder of the quartet.
For Welbeck, it is the latest in the procession of injuries that have plagued his career so far at the North London club. He had to come off during the recent 2-1 defeat at Watford with a recurrence of the groin strain which had kept him out previously. Ironically, it was the England striker’s first game back from that injury. It’s a real blow for Wenger who is a big fan of what Welbeck brings to the side. His all-round game perfectly complements the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette and he will be a big miss. Read More

Former Gunners player Robert Pires has asked his compatriot Olivier Giroud to remain at the Emirates Stadium past this summer amid reports that the former Ligue 1 star might exit the club.
Even before the addition of Lyon star Alexandre Lacazette, there were rumours that the Frenchman might leave Arsenal soon.
The player had a mixed performance last term and with the options that Arsene Wenger now has or is working towards having, then Giroud would get more bench time. Wenger is focused on ending his Premier League title drought this term so he wants to retain his best legs like Giroud.
Pires is in agreement that Giroud should not be allowed to leave the club if Arsenal want to lift the title next year. The France football legend added that Alexis Sanchez should not be sold off as well.
