PREMIER LEAGUE: ARSENAL VS LIVERPOOL

Arsenal can have no complaints whatsoever with the result. Liverpool played them off their own patch. Arsenal could not string a combination of passes to save their lives.

TheContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE: ARSENAL VS LIVERPOOL”

PREMIER LEAGUE:ARSENAL VS TOTTENHAM

Two things stood out for me in this match. One, both sides were equally as bad. Why I say this? No team took this game by the scruff of the neck. Secondly, Arsenal do not suffer from lack of talent. They suffer from lack of concentration. Just look at how badly they played the lastContinue reading “PREMIER LEAGUE:ARSENAL VS TOTTENHAM”

PREMIER LEAGUE:ASTON VILLA VS ARSENAL

Arsenal are falling back to old habits, defensive frailties,attacking impotence in big matches.

Playing with Martial and Cavani is proving to not be a good idea for United. Lacazette is now the main man up front for Arsenal, striking the post from a free kick best chance of the match.
