Arsenal are readying a £7m bid for Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech to replace Wojciech Szczesny. (Star) Szczesny made two errors against Southampton on New Year's Day and has urged Arsene Wenger to move fast for a fresh No 1. Cech has been forced onto the bench this season by Belgian Thibaut Courtois and could be willing to move across London for first-team football again.

(Mirror) PSG look ready to offload Cabaye but are keen on a swap deal involving Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko, who has also been linked with a move to Arsenal.

Cape Town - Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Mikel Arteta will be sidelined yet again with a calf problem. According to the Daily Mirror , Arteta is one of seven Arsenal players who are now sidelined with an injury. Theo Walcott, Mathieu Debuchy, Danny Welbeck, Mesut Ozil and Wojciech Szczesny are all out injured with Jack Wilshere facing a lengthy spell on the side with a three month lay-off. Yaya Sanogo was another player who got injured during Arsenal’s UEFA Champions League 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund having suffered a hamstring injury. Wenger confirms that Arteta would be “out for a while.” "The injuries are difficult to take on the chin,” said Arteta. “We go into many games and we need as many as possible available. The injury situation is a problem because we have many games and we lost two players tonight. "Arteta again has a calf problem and that looks quite serious and we lost Sanogo as well on a hamstring probl
Arsenal players injury update: Mesut Ozil Record signing Mesut Ozil is on schedule in his knee injury rehab, but Arsenal still won't see him any time soon. The German international is not expected back until January. Theo Walcott There is a little uncertainty over Walcott's condition. He returned from his long-term knee injury last month, but has missed the last two games. Arsene Wenger has simply said he is unavailable, and it's expected there is only a minor setback and the club are taking caution. Danny Welbeck Potentially there is good news on Welbeck. The Arsenal striker missed out against Borussia Dortmund with a minor knee problem, but he is expected to return to action this weekend against West Brom. Mikel Arteta Arteta sustained a calf injury against Dortmund, and Arsene Wenger did not sound positive. He said Arteta will be out 'a while'. Realistically he stands to miss 3-4 weeks, and will be touch and go for the trip to Liverpool on December 21. Yaya Sanogo Sanogo left the pitch after 80 minutes ...
London: Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta added to his club`s injury woes as the Spaniard limped off with a calf problem in Wednesday`s 2-0 win against Borussia Dortmund. Arteta was replaced in the 67th minute of the Champions League Group D clash and Gunners manager Arsene Wenger fears he could be sidelined for several weeks. The former Everton star`s injury comes after Wenger saw England midfielder Jack Wilshere ruled out for a long period with an ankle problem suffered against Manchester United on Saturday. Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is also out with a hip injury sustained against United, while England striker Danny Welbeck missed the Dortmund game with a knee problem. Arteta was joined on Arsenal`s growing injury list by France Under-21 striker Yaya Sanogo, who came off after scoring his first goal for the Gunners. “Arteta again has a calf problem that looks q ...
Gunless Arsenal brought down by United. Wayne Rooney led Manchester United back into the top four of the Premier League with a smash-and-grab 2-1 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. On the back of a successful week with England, the United captain secured victory with a coolly-taken 85th- minute chip over Arsenal substitute goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez. Rooney's strike added to a comedy own-goal by Kieran Gibbs that saw the left-back deflect Antonio Valencia's cross into his own net after a mix-up with goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who was injured in the process. Olivier Giroud, on as a second-half substitute, replied deep into stoppage time for Arsenal, but United held on to record a first competitive away win since April 5. The victory took Louis van Gaal's side back into the Champions League places, 13 points behind leaders Chelsea. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was left to rue an afternoon of wasted opportunities and inspired goalkeeping by United's David De Gea, as well as injur ...

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger surprised by Danny Welbeck's speed, skill and finishing ability Arsene Wenger says Danny Welbeck surpassed even the Frenchman's expectations with hat-trick against Galatasary in the Champions League . By Jeremy Wilson, at the Emirates Stadium Arsène Wenger admitted that he had not appreciated that Danny Welbeck was a good finisher or so adept technically even after spending £16 million on making him the most expensive centre-forward in Arsenal's history. Welbeck followed Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney, Mike Newell and Andy Cole to become only the sixth English player to score a Champions League hat-trick. Asked what he had learnt about Welbeck in the past month, Wenger said: “I’ve learnt he’s a good finisher. Technically he’s very sound. That was a surprise. He’s technically clean and that he’s a good passer of the ball. “Honestly, I didn’t know he was so quick. I knew he was quick but he can be electric when he starts. He showed that instinct of . ...
According to local Nice paper, Nice Matin, the French club have agreed a fee of around four millions euros with Arsenal for Colombian international goalkeeper David Ospina. Ospina, 25, impressed during this summer's World Cup in Brazil and has been linked with a move to London ever since Lukas Fabianski opted to leave the Gunners for a free transfer to Swansea. Arsene Wenger insisted on Saturday that a goalkeeper was a priority signing, in order to provide No. 1 Wojciech Szczesny with competition.
Information reaching INFORMATION NIGERIA is that Arsenal have agreed a fee with club OGB Nice for David Ospina. The Goalkeeper had a scintillating tournament for his country Columbia and is currently valued at 3.2Million. Losing Fabianski and Vivianio meant the club are without a goalkeeper to compete with Wojciech Szczesny between the sticks. After Arsenal's victory against Borehwood in a friendly at the Emirates last week, manager Arsene Wenger told the press the club are making efforts to sign a new goalkeeper. Ospina, 23, has appeared 175 for his club prior to the Worldcup.

Arsenal: Potential 2014/2015 starting XI. Arsenal's potential starting XI for the 2014/2015 season. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will have as much as £100 million to spend on new player this summer and the rumour mill is already in full swing, with speculation intensifying as to which household names will arrive through the doors of the Emirates Stadium before the transfer window slams shut on 2nd September. Last summer, Wenger stunned us all by splashing out an astronomical £42.5m on Real Madrid playmaker Mesut Ozil. But who could be among the Gunners’ shock signings this summer?

ARSENAL NEWS UPDATE 20th May 2014. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger celebrates FA Cup success with new three-year contract; Frenchman will enter a third decade at Arsenal and be given £100m transfer kitty after agreeing a deal until 2017 worth £7.5 million a year Arsène Wenger is preparing to enter an unprecedented third decade as Arsenal manager after agreeing a new three-year contract that will commit him to the club until 2017. Worth £7.5 million a year, the contract had been offered to Wenger regardless of whether Arsenal won the FA Cup but the 64-year-old has now pledged to follow up his verbal agreement by putting pen to paper before he travels to the World Cup. A formal announcement is likely this week, potentially Wednesday or Thursday. Arsenal’s dramatic 3-2 win against Hull City on Saturday was a record-equalling fifth FA Cup triumph for Wenger but, most significantly, was also the club’s first trophy since they moved from Highbury to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal v Hull City - FA Cup final teams Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger kept faith with second-choice goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski for Saturday's FA Cup final against Premier League rivals Hull City at Wembley Stadium. Fabianski, 29, usually provides back-up to Wojciech Szczesny, but he has stood in for his fellow Pole in this season's domestic cup competitions. Jack Wilshere was named on the bench for Arsenal after recently returning from a two-month lay-off with a fractured foot, but fellow England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain missed out due to a groin problem. Arsenal's player of the season Aaron Ramsey was paired alongside Mikel Arteta in midfield, with Santi Cazorla, Lukas Podolski and record signing Mesut Ozil providing support for lone striker Olivier Giroud. Hull centre-back James Chester overcame a hamstring injury to line up in a three-man defence alongside captain Curtis Davies and Alex Bruce, the son of manager Steve Bruce. In the absence of cup-tied strikers Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic, ...
Arsenal are interested in Cardiff City goalkeeper David Marshall . The People says the Gunners are poised to provide Wojciech Szczesny with increased competition after launching a move for the Scotland international. Marshall has won all manner of plaudits this season – with his shows earning him a bumper new pay deal. And now Arsene Wenger will test the Bluebirds’ resolve to hang on to their player- of-the-season next term with offering him a further pay hike – and the prospect of Champions League, rather than Championship, football.
Arsenal 1-0 West Brom: Giroud header enough for Gunners Olivier Giroud's 16th Premier League goal of the season sealed a 1-0 victory for Arsenal over West Brom at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. The Frenchman met Santi Cazorla's left-wing corner with a powerful downward header in the 14th minute, ensuring Arsene Wenger's men picked up their fourth successive league win. VIEW FROM THE Emirates Stadium By George Ankers Arsenal could have applied much more of a killer edge to this match but, in what was essentially a dead rubber, they did what they had to and no more. Olivier Giroud got the goal by taking advantage of weak marking at a first-half corner - though a late confrontation with Graham Dorrans might see him under a little scrutiny after the game. Mesut Ozil was the brightest spark, the man who least faded after the break, and Abou Diaby returned to the bench if not the pitch; the two biggest pluses for Arsene Wenger. The fans, meanwhile, were most concerned with loudly trying to convince Bacary Sagn ...
Arsene Wenger is ready to thrust Aaron Ramsey straight back into Arsenal's FA Cup campaign. Ramsey came on as a second-half substitute in Sunday's loss at Everton after nearly four months out with a thigh injury. Wenger will be without Mathieu Flamini, who begins a two match ban, on top of the absences through injury of fellow midfielders Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott. With the North Londoners also acutely aware that they've got West Ham and Hull in quick succession after Saturday and Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may not be able to play all three games, they could use on-loan Kim Kallstrom against Wigan. Keeper Lukasz Fabianski, who has played instead of first-choich Wojciech Szczesny throughout the cup run, is set to feature at Wembley after not making the Everton trip because of illness. -JCon

Arsene Wenger insists he will stick to his philosophy of promoting youth through the Arsenal ranks, despite calls to spend in the chase for silverware. The Frenchman has not lifted a trophy since 2005 and has come in for criticism from supporters in recent times for not spending big in order to help turn them into contenders both domestically and in Europe. Wenger has consistently looked to promote players from Arsenal's youth setup into the first team, with the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Jack Wilshere and Wojciech Szczesny all benefitting
EPL TOP FOUR STARTING XI. After Liverpool beat Sunderland on Wednesday the Premier League title race is getting exciting with Chelsea and Manchester City also in the hunt. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says his side are out of it after their 2-2 draw with Swansea City on Tuesday, although it is still possible with the games remaining. After such a thrilling season in the English top tier has deliberated long and hard to bring you the ultimate starting XI from the top four sides. GK - Wojciech Szczesny, Arsenal Between the sticks the options were varied and in the end it was difficult to choose between Petr Cech and Szczesny, with Joe Hart an outside choice.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is set to drop goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, 23, in favour of 28-year-old Lukasz Fabianski for the visit of Swansea City on Tuesday.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger looks set to axe goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny in the wake of their 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Chelsea.
Backpass Part 1 It was, Andre Marriner concluded, disappointing. Is that not the understatement of the season? Imagine if Arsene Wenger had said it. Lost 6-0 at Chelsea and then revealed his disappointment. Arsenal’s performance at Stamford Bridge on Saturday was no worse than Marriner’s, after all. To a referee, issuing a mistaken identity red card is the equivalent of a 6-0 defeat. Many have argued that by the time the ref sent off Kieran Gibbs it really didn’t matter which Arsenal man left the field. Wenger’s team were three down after 17 minutes. The game was lost. Even if he had dismissed Wojciech Szczesny it would not have made any difference. Now contemplate a different scenario. The score is not 2-0, but 0-0, when Marriner errs. The result is not 6-0 to Chelsea but 2-1 to Arsenal: and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scores the winner. The title race changes on this misjudgment. Nonetheless, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was philosophical and he advocated the introduction of video technology, but . ...

Arsenal exited the Champions League at the first knockout stage for the fourth year in a row after drawing at holders Bayern Munich. A dominant Bayern, leading 2-0 from the first leg, had a Javi Martinez volley ruled out for offside before the break. Bastian Schweinsteiger gave Bayern the lead from close range before Lukas Podolski shot high into the net to level the score on the night. Thomas Muller had a late penalty saved as Bayern won 3-1 on aggregate. Arsenal's European exit leaves them just two more chances to end a nine-year trophy drought this season. Arsene Wenger's men are in the FA Cup semi-final and seven points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea. The damage was done in the first leg at Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal will rue an early missed penalty by Mesut Ozil and the dismissal of goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. Few gave the Gunners much chance of overturning the 2-0 deficit at the defending European and German champions, who won a record 16th Bundesliga game in a row against Wolfsburg on ...
Arsenal battled hard but could only draw 1-1 away to Bayern Munich, who progress to the UEFA Champions League's last eight. The Gunners were given the runaround in a goalless first half at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night, with chances few and far between as they sought to turn around Bayern's two-goal advantage from the first leg. Ten minutes after the restart, Bastian Schweinsteiger scored from Franck Ribery's left-wing cross and although Lukas Podolski quickly smashed in an equaliser, the Gunners could not produce the goals they needed and went out 3-1 on aggregate. At least they were not beaten, with Lukas Fabianski saving a late penalty from substitute Thomas Muller after Laurent Koscielny fouled Arjen Robben in the box. Arsene Wenger made three changes to the Arsenal team that started the 4-1 FA Cup win over Everton on Saturday. In came Koscielny, Podolski and Olivier Giroud in place of Kieran Gibbs (ankle), Yaya Sanogo (foot) and Mathieu Flamini, who dropped to the bench. Wojciech Szczesny was su ...

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has slammed “diver” Arjen Robben following his side’s Champions League exit to current holders Bayern Munich. A spirited performance saw the Gunners secure a respectable 1-1 draw in Bavaria, but it was not enough to book a quarter-final place as the Germans secured a 3-1 aggregate victory. Having trailed 2-0 following their first leg defeat at the Emirates, Arsenal fell further behind when Bastian Schweinsteiger stuck home early in the second-half, though Lukas Podolski blasted in the equaliser against his former club moments later. The drama continued late into the tie as Bayern were awarded a later penalty when Robben, who has a reputation for theatricals, went down very easily under pressure from Laurent Koscielny. Thomas Muller squandered his chance from the spot as Lukasz Fabianski, in for the suspended Wojciech Szczesny, did well to deny the German’s poor kick. But having seen Robben go to ground on numerous occasions during the two-legged tie, Wenger was unimpr ...
Arsene Wenger made seven changes to his lineup in the last round of the FA Cup. He gambled, rolled the dice and came up trumps because Arsenal saw off Liverpool 2-1 in the fifth round. It was a risk worth taking in Wenger's mind because they had Bayern Munich in the Champions League three days later. Back came all the big guns, and Arsenal played really well against the European champions -- but had Wojciech Szczesny sent off, went down to 10 men and ended up losing 2-0. It was rotten luck. It also means that the trip to Munich next week for the return leg is going to be Mission Impossible. Well, not quite. But nearly. The title race is also slipping away, with Chelsea in danger of disappearing into the distance with Arsenal and Manchester City involved in the cup, and Liverpool having the weekend off. Blimey, even Steven Gerrard admitted last week they've got it easy -- and now they've got another weekend off. Anfield has become like Butlins. But the point is that Arsenal's best hope of silverware is the ...
Arsene Wenger: "Bayern Less Dangerous Than Real! Arsene Told Eurosport: "Last year, Ribery and Robben were playing together and they were in great shape, so Bayern were really powerful going forward. "This year they still have an awful lot of possession, but I think they're less dangerous. I think we saw that at Arsenal. Even though we were playing with 10 players (following the sending off of Wojciech Szczesny) they didn't really create an awful lot." And Wenger has seen enough of the Spanish side to think of them as contenders to win the Champions League trophy for the first time since 2002. The Frenchman said: "Real Madrid right now are on a par with anything. For me, this is the team with the best balance...!!!"
Premier League Result Stoke City continued their fine home record against Arsenal on Saturday as a Jonathan Walters penalty earned the hosts a 1-0 win. Arsene Wenger's men have now won just once in their last 10 trips to Stoke in all competitions and sit four points behind leaders Chelsea thanks to a Walters penalty 14 minutes from time. Having bounced back from defeat to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League with an impressive 4-1 win over Sunderland last week, Wenger's charges struggled to recapture that form at the Britannia Stadium. After Peter Crouch missed a handful opportunities, Walters ensured his side added to their home scalps of Chelsea and Manchester United, extending Arsenal's winless run on the road to three matches in the process. Mark Hughes' side are now six points above the bottom three after recording their first Premier League win since February 1. In a closely fought opening, Walters glanced a header just wide of Wojciech Szczesny's right- hand post with 15 minutes gone but saw ...
Arsenal red card 'killed the game', says boss Arsene Wenger Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes the referee "killed the game" after he sent off goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny during the first leg of their last-16 Champions League loss to Bayern Munich. Nicola Rizzoli showed Szczesny a red card after he tripped Bayern's Arjen Robben in the first half of Wednesday's 2-0 defeat at home to the holders. "The referee made a decision that killed the game," Wenger said. Unbeatable Bayern? Since August 2012 Bayern Munich have won 48 of 55 Bundesliga games, losing just once and scoring 155 times in the process. Their European form has been almost as impressive, winning 16 out of 20 and lifting the trophy last May by beating Borussia Dortmund at Wembley. "Our keeper went for the ball, he touched Robben, who made more of it." Szczesny, 23, looked to have clipped Robben's leg after the Netherlands winger beat the Pole to Toni Kroos's lofted pass. As he left the pitch, the goalkeeper appeared to make a gesture to signal ...
Arsene Wenger insists that Arjen Robben was to blame for the incident that saw Wojciech Szczesny sent off during Arsenal's 2-0 defeat at home to Bayern Munich...
Everton manger Roberto Martinez has called on football authorities to rethink the "double punishment" rule that saw Arsenal go down to Bayern Munich last night. Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was sent off in the first half for a trip on Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben, though there is much debate on whether there was any real contact. The game was turned on its head, as Bayern Munich emerged 2-0 winners, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, unsurprisingly, pointing a blaming finger at the red card. Robben was deemed to be enjoying a goalscoring opportunity at the time of the incident, but Martinez feels a penalty should be punishment enough. "At the moment, if you follow the rules, it's a red card and a penalty", he told a press conference. "But the law is harsh. "It takes a lot out of the team and maybe it needs reviewing. I always felt that is double punishment. It's a very harsh rule. "I was at the game, but it was difficult to see if Robben was going to get the ball - it was very difficult for the refe ...
DAILY MAIL Arsene Wenger has accused Arjen Robben of diving to get Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny sent off which led to a 2-0 defeat by Bayern Munich. Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny could face disciplinary action from UEFA after appearing to make an obscene gesture following his dismissal against Bayern Munich. Manchester City defender Martin Demichelis has taken the blame for his red card against Barcelona in the Champions and said he does not blame the referee for sending him off. Man Utd boss David Moyes was in stands to watch the Toni Kroos masterclass as the Bayern Munich midfielder's valuation went through the roof at the Emirates Stadium.

The Referee Killed the Bayern Game- Arsene Wenger. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes his side wasted too many opportunities to place Wednesday’s Champions League round of 16 tie beyond their opponents Bayern Munich. The Gunners failed to place themselves in contention for a last-eight berth as second- half goals from Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller gave the reigning European and German champions a 2-0 win at the Emirate Stadium. It was a night to regret for, Wenger, his players and the home faithful after Mesut Ozil carelessly squandered an early penalty before goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny got his marching order for fouling Arjen Roben eight minutes to the interval. Arsenal started the tie in dominant fashion and were rewarded with a penalty after only nine minutes when Ozil was fouled by Jerome Boateng as he tried to turn inside the defender. Jerome Boateng Fouls Ozil stepped up for the spot- kick, only for his run-up to end with a feeble tap on the ball, which was kept out by Manuel Neuer. “I pref ...
Champions League holders Bayern Munich produced a dominant display to beat Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night. The Gunners had the better of the opening stages, with Mesut Ozil missing an early penalty, but were second best once goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny had been sent off for fouling Arjen Robben. The German champions set a Champions League record by completing 95% of their passes during the night, but that was not the only way they were statistically dominant. BBC Sport looks at the numbers behind the Bavarian giants' success. 863 The number of passes attempted by Bayern during the 90 minutes, 95% of which were successful. This success percent is a new Champions League record since accurate data recording began in the 2003-04 season. The most passes attempted against Arsenal in the Premier League this season was the 624 by Swansea in September, while Fulham are the most accurate team against the Gunners in the league this season, completing 87.3% of their 479 passes in August. 222 ...

Wojciech Szczesny's become the 100th player to be sent off for Arsenal under Arsene Wenger as they lost 2-0 to Bayern
Arsene Wenger questioned the penalty style adopted by his German midfielder Mesut Ozil, after he missed a crucial spot kick in Arsenal's 2-0 home defeat to Bayern Munich. Ozil’s relaxed approach to his eighth-minute attempt allowed his German international colleague Manuel Neuer to palm away with relative ease, and Wenger admitted he is not a fan of the slow-paced approach adopted by his 42.4 million-pound club-record buy. "I prefer that people run properly at the ball," Wenger told Sky Sports when asked about of Ozil’s penalty technique. "Look, everyone has their own style and you have to respect that there is not one way of penalty taking. He feels comfortable like that, it’s his style." A dignified Wenger was gracious after defeat, as he suggested the football fates were against his side on a night when they were matching Bayern before a red card for keeper Wojciech Szczesny seven minutes before half-time. The Arsenal boss had few complaints about the award as Szczesny tripped Arjen Robben in the ...

Robben made more of it - Wenger: Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes Wojciech Szczesny's red card "killed the game" against Bayern Munich.
Arsene Wenger disputed whether goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny should have been sent off during Arsenal's 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.
ARS V BAY HT RECAP: Toni Kroos forced Wojciech Szczesny to a great save for the first chance for Bayern, Arsenal hit back through a Mesut Ozil penalty saved by Manuel Neuer before Yaya Sanogo put Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain through on goal but Manuel Neuer again stood tall. Kieran Gibbs was forced off injured at right-back for Arsenal with Nacho Monreal coming on and the substitute was caught napping by Arjen Robben who bore down on goal drawing the foul from Wojciech Szczesny. Keeper sent off and Arsene Wenger sacrificed Santi Cazorla for Lukas Fabianski but David Alaba penalty shaved the base of the post and out. 0-0 but full of rich drama. AC Milan and Atletico Madrid locked at 0-0.
Arsenal news and gossip Soon to be Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has confirmed that Wojciech Szczesny tried to get him to join Arsenal rather than the German behemoths. Arsene Wenger has revealed that Spartak Moscow will cover Kim Kallstrom’s wages while he’s out injured and confirmed that he was aware of the Swede’s injury problem before finalising the paperwork After speculation which suggested Lazio were interested in taking Nicklas Bendtner on loan, the Dane’s agent has played down any talk of him moving in January.

Arsenal and Manchester City set to rest star players in their FA Cup ties this weekend Manuel Pellegrini and Arsene Wenger are ready to risk their FA Cup dreams this weekend to save players for the Champions League. Manchester City boss Pellegrini is facing the first leg of a last-16 tie against visitors Barcelona on Tuesday, so is prepared to rest Vincent Kompany, David Silva, Yaya Toure and Alvaro Negredo for Saturday’s meeting with Chelsea at the Etihad. With Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho both out injured Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Wenger - trophyless since 2005 - could be set to make six changes from the side that ground out a draw with Manchester United on Wednesday as he tries to revive his key men for Wednesday’s clash with European champions Bayern Munich. Lukasz Fabianski will likely take over from Wojciech Szczesny in goal, with Lukas Podolski, Nicklas Bendtner, Mathieu Flamini, Nacho Monreal and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joining him in the Gunners’ starting line-up against Liverpool.
ESPN REPORTS Liverpool produced one of the most stunning opening 20 minutes seen at Anfield - and arguably one of the best ever - to blow away Arsenal 5-1 and give their own title hopes a shot in the arm. • Brewin: Liverpool blitzkrieg destroys Arsenal • Kelly: Tempo key to Anfield masterclass • McNicholas: Damages to pride and credibility Brendan Rodgers' rampant Reds fired four goals before the visitors knew what had hit them, and they were incapable of finding a response. The irony was that the league's leading striker Luis Suarez, whom Gunners boss Arsene Wenger tried so hard to sign in the summer with a cheeky B£40,000,001 bid, did not get near any of them. Suarez, who deserved a goal for a brilliant volley which beat goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny but not the post, could claim an assist for Raheem Sterling's first of two but Liverpool were well in control by then thanks to two from defender Martin Skrtel - the first after just 52 seconds. There was a sense of incredulity around Anfield when Dan ...
Liverpool produced one of the performances of the season with a stunning 5-1 win over Arsenal at Anfield. A blistering four-goal blitz inside the opening 20 minutes from Liverpool effectively put the game beyond Arsene Wenger's side. Martin Skrtel scored twice in the opening 10 minutes to put Liverpool in firm control and further strikes from Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge gave the home side an unassailable 4-0 lead before half-time. Sterling netted the fifth goal early in the second half with Mikel Arteta's penalty the only blot on Liverpool's copybook in what was a perfect day for Brendan Rodgers' side as they enhanced their top four aspirations and dented Arsenal's title bid. Liverpool came racing out of the blocks and hit the front in the very first minute when Steven Gerrard whipped in a free-kick and Skrtel, unmarked inside the six-yard box, bundled the ball home past Wojciech Szczesny with his knee. The home side continued to pour forward in the opening exchanges and Szczesny did well to bloc ...
Arsenal drop points at Southampton Premier League leaders Arsenal dropped points in the title race as they were held by Southampton in an enthralling contest at St Mary's. Jose Fonte headed in Luke Shaw's cross to give the Saints a deserved lead. But Arsenal turned things round with two quick goals after half-time, from Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla. Adam Lallana brought Southampton level when he turned in a Jay Rodriguez pass before Arsenal's Mathieu Flamini was sent off for a rash challenge. Gunners goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny then pulled off a fine double save in the closing stages to keep out efforts from Shaw and Fonte and deny the home side all three points. Southampton would have been good value for the victory as they outplayed their visitors for large portions of the match. Arsene Wenger's men looked a pale imitation of their usual selves as they opened the door to title rivals Manchester City and Chelsea. Both could overtake Arsenal with victories on Wednesday, when City visit Tottenham and ...
This was probably a game that Arsene Wenger expected Arsenal to win. However, by full-time, he must have been mightily relieved to escape with a 2-2 draw. - Report: Southampton 2-2 Arsenal Wenger's team selection was hampered by the absence of Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky. The best Arsenal performances tend to include at least one of this energetic trio: they play a crucial role, injecting tempo into the midfield and forging links with the attack. Without that tireless triumvirate, Arsenal struggled. Wenger's side may have had an extra day's rest, but a feisty Southampton were first to every ball. For that reason, it was no great surprise when, after 21 minutes, Mauricio Pochettino's team took the lead. A deep cross from Luke Shaw was met by centre-half Jose Fonte, whose downward header beat Wojciech Szczesny at the near post. Szczesny will have been disappointed to be beaten in such a manner. It seems this match-up brings bad luck for Polish goalkeepers: in the reverse fixture at the Emi ...
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has praised the development of Wojciech Szczesny and believes he is among the best five goalkeepers in the Premier League.
Liverpool will be top of the Premier League on Christmas Day after Arsenal and Chelsea played out a goalless draw in driving rain at the Emirates Stadium. Jose Mourinho's men wasted the two best chances of a cagey first half, with Frank Lampard striking the underside of the crossbar with a fierce volley and Willian forcing a low save from Wojciech Szczesny. Clear chances remained at a premium after the break, but Olivier Giroud spurned two big opportunities for either side on the night and Cesar Azpilicueta cleared Bacary Sagna's header off the line late on. Jose Mourinho made it 10 matches against Arsene Wenger as Blues manager without suffering defeat as the Gunners saw their winless Premier League run extended to three games. Wenger made four changes from the side beaten 6-3 by Manchester City last time out, Thomas Vermaelen replacing the injured Laurent Koscielny in defence, while Tomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta came in for the suspended Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Flamini in midfield. Frank Lampard was ...
Arsenal 1 Everton 1: Post-Match Thoughts and Player Ratings. The Gunners had been on a high in the Premier League with three consecutive victories after the disappointing defeat to Manchester United. With the Gunners’ direct title rivals all dropping points, the onus was on them to make a statement with a win over a much-improved Everton side under new guidance, but that didn’t quite pan out. Arsene Wenger fielded a familiar side with Bacary Sagna still missing out with a hamstring injury allowing Carl Jenkinson to feature in his stead. That meant returns for regulars like Kieran Gibbs, Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud in the starting lineup. Listed below are Gooner Daily’s ratings for Arsenal’s disappointing draw with Everton; Wojciech Szczesny: Despite the fact that Everton, rather surprisingly, had more possession than the Gunners, they didn’t really penetrate the Gunners. However, I’m in the opinion that he could have done better from Gerard Deulofeu’s strike, as the ball c ...
Arsenal 1-1 Everton Arsenal missed the chance to go seven points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League as Gerard Deulofeu's late goal earned Everton a 1-1 draw. Arsene Wenger's men failed to take full advantage of Chelsea's shock 3-2 loss at Stoke City on Saturday, although they did extend their lead on their London rivals – and Liverpool – to five points at Emirates Stadium. Barcelona loanee Deulofeu struck with six minutes remaining as Everton ended an excellent week, which also featured victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford, on a high. The visitors controlled the first half but lacked a cutting edge and, in an end-to-end second period, Arsenal looked to have secured three points when Mesut Ozil converted from close range in the 80th minute. However, substitute Deulofeu – who was introduced just five minutes before scoring – had other ideas, firing past Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny to rescue a point. Olivier Giroud almost found a dramatic winner for Arsenal, firing a l ...
Arsene Wenger believes Wojciech Szczesny did the right thing committing his future to Arsenal and challenged the Pole to become a goalkeeper of historic importance to the club. Praising the 23-year-old’s upturn in form since being dropped in March, the manager bracketed the stopper with Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere as another successful example of the Gunners educating and promoting young talent. “He has already a vast experience,” Wenger told Arsenal Player ahead of Saturday’s trip to Cardiff. “That’s why I think it’s very good news for the Club that he has extended his contract. But rightly so as well because this Club has given him a huge chance at a very young age – and that is not common at in the top, top clubs.”
Today talking to the media after the victory Arsene Wenger was asked: Whether he ask Wojciech Szczesny to avoid holding the ball(referring to Boruc's mistake) ? Wenger replied, "Yes - I told him to kick it to me on the bench!"
Arsene Wenger insisted he would never take a risk with a player's life after goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny suffered a head injury at Manchester United
MY ARSENAL Before a ball was kicked in August,I feared MY ARSENAL will not make the top four. There had been no marquee signings while Manchester City and Chelsea spent £200 million on new prayers. I thought my manager, Arsene Wenger was getting left behind in the transfer market,but landing £42.5m Mezut ozil on deadline day changed all that at a stroke. Now Wenger's players look around the dressing room,instead of wondering who is to be the next player to leave,they see Ozil and think,"we have got one of the best players in the world in our team" The German has given Arsenal the belief that they are contenders,not pretenders for the title this season. Clearly,ozil has lifted the club- on and off the pitch- will be influential. But I have also been impressed by Wojciech Szczesny's improved consistency in goal and Per Mertersacker has been a rock at the back. Born again Aaron Ramsey has been hugely impressive as well,Mathew Flamini too has done a very good job. To me with his performance and Wenger getti ...
Eleven reason's for Arsenal's early season success There’s already been a number of hero’s credited as being the catalyst for Arsenal’s great start to the season.The first was Arsene Wenger after he finally broke into Arsenal’s transfer kitty. Then it was the man he bought, Mesut Ozil, after his early form in the red and white ignited the fire of creative football once again in their half of North London. Later it was Mathieu Flamini, the unobtrusive returnee to the club on a free transfer who was willing to do the dirty work to fuel the Arsenal engine as it stormed up the Premier League table, and finally, according to the Daily Telegraph, Olivier Giroud is the unsung hero and the driving force of Arsenal’s possible path to glory.That’s not to mention Aaron Ramsey, whose electric start to the season has silenced the vast number of Arsenal fans who had written the Welshman’s career off, Wojciech Szczesny, who has vastly improved in quality and confidence after a shaky season last year, or ev ...
Arsenal v Borussia Dortmund (1945 BST) Arsenal's upturn in form can be traced back to when they defeated eventual winners Bayern Munich in last season's Champions League. That night in March could also become a landmark one in the career of Wojciech Szczesny, who was dropped by Arsene Wenger. "Looking back now it was a good lesson for me, one that I needed at the time," he said. "I definitely have got sharper since then, I have worked harder in training and it worked back then for me and I have carried on doing it. I am feeling like I am a bit more consistent at the moment."
Arsenal are expected to offer Wojciech Szczesny a new contract after the Pole convinced manager Arsene Wenger that he deserves to be number one at the Emirates Stadium.
Highly-rated Arsenal goalkeeper makes Sheffield Wednesday loan move Arsenal goalkeeper Damian Martinez has joined Championship side Sheffield Wednesday on a one-month loan deal. Martinez (above) has established himself as a highly-regarded talent and has received international recognition by Argentina at Under-20 level although he is yet to make his senior debut. The 21-year-old joined the Gunners' Academy in 2010 and was quickly handed a place in Arsene Wenger's first-team squad at the Emirates Stadium. He completed a loan spell with League Two side Oxford towards the end of the 2011/12 season, making just a solitary start. Martinez went on to enjoy two Capital One Cup outings for Arsenal last term, appearing in a 6-1 rout of Coventry and the memorable 7-5 victory over Reading at the Madejski Stadium. The Argentinian is behind Wojciech Szczesny, Lukasz Fabianski and Emiliano Viviano in Wenger's pecking order this year but is a regular in the North London club's Under-21 Development side. Martinez will co ...
Early morning Tea... Arsenal dare to dream The big QUESTION is... Can they really do it? Can Arsenal mount a title challenge? It was a question that didn't bother the Arsenal fans on Sunday as they chanted "we are top of the league" after a 3-1 victory over Stokeat the Emirates to secure their seventh straight win. Arsene Wenger's men are riding the crest of a wave with four of those back-to-back wins coming in the Premier League, which took them to the top spot and has the fans dreaming again. But is the title just a pipe dream? Do Arsenal have the quality to maintain a challenge until May? Of course Arsenal boss Wenger thinks so, even though he was measured in his comments after the victory. That has to be the target, though. In Mesut Ozil they have a supplier of chances, assists and a player of genuine world-class quality. The Former Real Madrid playmaker has given Arsenal the X factor they have missed since the departures of Cesc Fabregas and Robin Van Persie. Arsenal out-muscle Stoke In fact, Ozil h ...
Mesut Ozil had a hand in all three Arsenal goals as they chalked up their seventh consecutive victory by comfortably beating Stoke. Aaron Ramsey notched his seventh goal in eight games by knocking in after Asmir Begovic saved Ozil's free-kick. Stoke equalised before the break when Geoff Cameron steered in after Marko Arnautovic hit the post. Play media Arsenal 3-1 Stoke: Arsene Wenger hails 'very important' win Per Mertesacker and Bacary Sagna then headed in Ozil set-pieces as Arsenal moved to the top of the Premier League. This result was another demonstration of how Ramsey and Ozil, making his home debut, are becoming pivotal players for the Gunners. Yet with a still lengthy injury list, there was a further worry for Wenger when Theo Walcott was ruled out before kick-off with a pelvic abdominal injury. However, his 18-year-old German deputy, Serge Gnabry, looked comfortable in his first game of the season. Mikel Arteta also returned for the final 10 minutes following a thigh problem. Stoke's woes at Ars ...
ARSENAL WINS TENTH STRAIGHT AWAY MATCH! The last match Arsenal failed to win away from the Emirates was the one they lost to Tottenham at the beginning of match. After that, The Gunners had gone to Munich to face Bayern, then to Swansea, WBA, Fulham, QPR, Newcastle, Fernabache, Fulham, Sunderland...and got maximum results. Yesterday, they came through a very tough Champions League match in Marseille with another win, their 10th on the roll. Like he did two years ago in same Stadium, Aaron Ramsey scored six minutes from time to assure the points after Theo Walcott had cracked in a volley just past the hour mark off Kirean Gibbs mazy cross. Jordi Ayew's extra time penalty goal after his brother, Andre was dubiously adjudged to have been impeded by Ramsey, did nothing to deny the Arsene Wenger boys their hard-earned maximum spoils. With Jack Wilshere, Wojciech Szczesny also contributing significantly to the win, it's very clear those Arsenal boys are quickly turning into men! Mesut Ozil(remember him?) may n ...
Arsenal are reportedly set to bid £1.5million for QPR and Brazil goalkeeper, Julio Cesar next week as Redknapp prepares for life without the veteran keeper. It has been widely reported that Arsene Wenger has been in the market for a high caliber goalkeeper and Cesar is the ideal target since his age won't pose a threat to Arsenal youngster, Wojciech Szczesny's career should he regain form. And he would provide quality between the posts in the meantime. What do you guys think? ~V Man
With a reported £70m burning a hole in the pocket of Arsene Wenger's long grey trousers, Arsenal fans across the country will be hoping he spends it wisely. This, after all, may be Arsene's last summer at the Emirates Stadium to build a squad capable of winning a title. The biggest problem for Wenger and his team last year was dropping points against the top teams. If they want to compete for trophies, Arsenal need a bigger more potent squad that will give the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United a run for their money. Here are the five signings that could make Arsenal champions again. 1. Asmir Begovic | Stoke City The plain fact is, despite his youth, Wojciech Szczesny is not good enough. They often say that the team winning the championship has a keeper who gains them 12 points a season. I admit that Szczesny has improved but you only have to look at his Carling Cup final mistake against Birmingham City and his omission against Bayern Munich earlier this year to see he hasn't the men ...
Arsenal are keeping tabs on Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina's situation. The London Evening Standard says Arsenal are monitoring Reina’s situation after the Anfield club completed a £9million deal for Simon Mignolet. Reina has publicly stated his intention to remain on Merseyside and fight for his first- team place but there is uncertainty over his future amid rumours manager Brendan Rodgers is keen to install Mignolet as his No1 next season. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger remains a keen admirer of Reina, having tried to sign him two seasons ago, and he is considering a number of options as he looks to provide competition for Wojciech Szczesny. With the Gunners restructuring their wage bill after releasing a number of highly-paid players including Andrey Arshavin, Denilson and Sebastien Squillaci, Reina’s £110,000-a- week wages will not pose a problem.

Parlour urges Wenger to spend €116m on Rooney, Higuain & FellainiThe Gunners legend believes his former side can be a threat next year with the right additions as the club look to close in on London rivals Chelsea and the two Manchester clubs. Ray Parlour has encouraged Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to splash the cash this summer in order to ensure his former club challenge for major honours next season. Goal revealed earlier this month how the Gunners are finally ready to flex their financial muscle by activating the release clause in Marouane Fellaini's Everton contract. Arsenal are also exploring the possibility of moves for Gonzalo Higuain and Wayne Rooney as Wenger looks to bridge the gap between the North London outfit and the Manchester powerhouses. Parlour feels such stellar names would get pulses racing around the Emirates, but stressed it may take significant spending to address the flaws in the squad. Parlour, who was speaking at the launch of the 2013-2014 Barclays Premier League fixtures, told ...

Barcelona custodian Victor Valdes is reportedly set for a move to the Premier League, with Arsenal weighing up an off-season bid. According to The Sun, the La Liga leaders are willing to let the Spanish international make the move as long as the North London club can meet the £10 million asking price. But the price tag is not the only stumbling block with Valdes commanding a £120,000-a-week at the Spanish club – a wage unheard of at the Emirates. However, with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger recently questioning the form of current 'keeper Wojciech Szczesny, he may just decide to crack the club's frugal wallet to sign the Champions League winner. -KS
SPORTAINMENT Up Blackburn! What a sweet victory over 'World football supermarket' Aresenal? Good possession without goals = mere entertainment football. Arsene Wenger decision to rest a host of key players in the FA Cup ahead of Arsenal's Champions League encounter with Bayern Munich backfired, as the Gunners crashed out with a 1-0 home defeat to Blackburn. The likes of Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla were named on the bench ahead of the clash with Championship side Rovers, with all three coming on as the Gunners floundered. But only a minute after the star names had been introduced, Colin Kazim-Richards found the back of the net from a rebound, after Wojciech Szczesny had pushed out Martin Olsson's shot into the area. For all the dominance that Arsenal possessed, they found a barrier to goal in 22-year-old keeper Jake Kean, while Tomas Rosicky had a shot crash off the crossbar in the second half. But in truth, the Gunners did not do enough to deserve anything from the match, with their firs ...
   Santi Cazorla fired ten-man Arsenal to a 1-0 victory at Sunderland as Arsene Wenger saw his side survive a late onslaught. The Spaniard struck 10 minutes before the break to give the Gunners a deserved lead as Black Cats goalkeeper Simon Mignolet turned in another fine display to otherwise keep them at bay. However, the 62nd-minute dismissal of defender Carl Jenkinson, who was only included after Laurent Koscielny injured himself during the warm-up, for a second bookable offence left the Londoners hanging on in front of a crowd of 46,402. Steven Fletcher had earlier passed up a glorious opportunity to level but, even after Jenkinson's departure, Arsenal had chances and Theo Walcott was unfortunate to see a 75th-minute effort come back off the post. However, goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny spared Per Mertesacker's blushes three minutes later when he blocked Fletcher's shot after he had charged down the defender's attempted clearance and the visitors managed to see the game out amid a frenzied conclusion. ...
Are Tottenham now BETTER than Arsenal? Spurs are sat four points above Arsenal in the race for fourth spot, but can they really finish above the Gunners for the first time since 1995? Time will tell, but there appears to be little to choose between the two teams, so we've had a look at their respective squads and come to our own conclusion as to whether Andre Villas-Boas or Arsene Wenger should be. Goalkeeping Tottenham are blessed in this department. Not only do they have one of Europe's best goalkeepers, France captain Hugo Lloris, marshalling the defence, but Brad Friedel was keeping the current no.1 out of the side at one stage. Even Heurelho Gomes, when not dropping clangers, has shown signs of his goalkeeping ability. Wojciech Szczesny has proven his class at the Emirates and has the fan chants to back it up, but not many could argue Lloris and Premier League veteran Friedel combined are better than Szczesny and his understudies, Lukasz Fabianski and Vito Mannone. Defence At the back both teams are ...
Manchester United and Arsenal are making checks on QPR’s Brazilian keeper Julio Cesar. Both clubs have serious goalkeeping issues and are on the lookout for an experienced No 1. David De Gea will be replaced at United while the Gunners are losing faith in Polish stopper Wojciech Szczesny. And SunSport has learned the two clubs have been canvassing opinion on Cesar. He has the pedigree United boss Alex Ferguson and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger are looking for. Cesar, 33, spent seven years at Inter Milan where he won five Serie A titles and the Champions League. He quit Inter because the club had to get him off the wage bill and he surprisingly moved to Loftus Road. QPR need to get rid of either Cesar or Robert Green due to their high wages. However, Cesar’s form is such that he has become vital to Rangers’ relegation fight. Read more:
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger felt his team suffered from poor officiating during the 2-1 defeat by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Wenger was livid on the touchline as Juan Mata broke the deadlock moments after Ramires appeared to foul Francis Coquelin. And his anger increased when Gunners goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was adjudged to have brought down Ramires in the box. Ramires appeared to slip as he tried to twist past the keeper, and Wenger believes the Brazilian should have been booked for diving. Wenger said: "The referee gave a lot of free-kicks today, and some much less than the Coquelin one. It's frustrating. "It doesn't mean we should have conceded the goal but, in the big games, these decisions have big implications. "He could have given Ramires a yellow card as well." However, Wenger refused to absolve his players from blame for the defeat, the second league game in succession in which they were made to pay for a slow start after last weekend's loss to Manchester City. "We had a similar start to Man ...
Arsene Wenger says Arsenal were "unlucky with some decisions" after losing 2-1 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Gunners boss believes Chelsea's penalty, given for Wojciech Szczesny's foul on Ramires, should not have been awarded.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has plenty of options available to him after watching his side progress to the Champions League last 16 in midweek. Wojciech Szczesny is back between the sticks and back in form for the Gunners, who travel to Villa Park high on confidence following consecutive wins against Tottenham Hotspur and Montpellier. A back four of Bacary Sagna, Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny and Thomas Vermaelen is unlikely to be changed, although Kieran Gibbs is available again and could provide another option at left back. The midfield trio of Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Santi Cazorla is starting to show serious signs of promise, although Abou Diaby and Tomas Rosicky remain out through injury for the Emirates Stadium outfit. Ivorian international Gervinho is available for selection once again, but Olivier Giroud will expect to get the nod after some impressive displays in recent weeks. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is again likely to replace the injured Theo Walcott, whilst German international Lukas ...

•Liverpool and Arsenal in Reina swap deal Liverpool shot stopper Pepe Reina could be set to leave Anfield after seven years of service. Reina's recent spell on the side lines for Liverpool is the longest the keeper has been out of any side in his career and with Brad Jones proving to be a more than capable deputy the pressure is on Reina to maintain his form is risk being dropped by Rodgers.

There are also reports that a swap deal between Arsenal and Liverpool could be an option, with Reina heading to London with flying winger Theo Walcott heading the other way. But Rodgers would only trade with Arsenal if he was sure he could bring in their goal keeping target Ali Al-Habsi from Wigan in the s ...
Arsenal look set to recall goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny after two months out with an ankle injury. Jack Wilshere is available after suspension but Bacary Sagna, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Mikel Arteta are all concerns for Arsene Wenger. Tottenham remain without Mousa Dembele, who is still troubled by the hip injury that has kept him out for a month. Jermain Defoe, Kyle Walker and Aaron Lennon all suffered hamstring problems last weekend but should be fit.
Arsene Wenger is facing a full scale injury crisis ahead of tomorrow's North London Derby. Arsenal boss Wenger revealed today Olivier Giroud and Mikel Arteta are major injury doubts while Bacary Sagna, Mikel Arteta, Wojciech Szczesny, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott will all have fitness tests.
Arsene Wenger has been handed a timely lift by the return to training of Tomas Rosicky. The Czech midfielder has not played this season due to an achilles injury sustained at Euro 2012, but the 32-year-old has completed his rehabilitation plan and begun light training. Gervinho has also stepped up his recovery from an ankle injury he picked up in this month's game against Queens Park Rangers. Back: Tomas Rosicky has returned to training with Arsenal It is unclear when manager Arsene Wenger will reintroduce Rosicky and Gervinho into full training but the news comes as a major fillip going into Saturday's North London Derby. Wojciech Szczesny (ankle), Theo Walcott (glute) and Alex Oxlade- Chamberlain all look set to be fit for the visit of Tottenham. Slowly but surely: Gervinho is also making progress after his injury Szczesny is expected to start the match, replacing Vito Mannone, who was arguably at fault for two of Fulham's three goals in last weekend's 3-3 draw.
Rosicky and Ramsey back in training for Arsenal. Arsenal are finally starting to get some players back, after what seems like forever. Tomas Rosicky has not played for the Gunners all season, following a tendon injury he suffered while playing for the Czech Republic at Euro 2012. The 32-year old playmaker trained with his Arsenal team mates today at London Colney and his recovery will be a boost to everyone. It is likely to take Rosicky a few weeks to get back to full fitness, but it will then give Arsene Wenger more options, which will be a relief after the blighted start the squad has endured. Santi Cazorla might even get to have a rest, or he could try his luck on the wings when Rosicky is back. Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were due to have fitness tests, and both players trained today, so they could be in the squad to face Fulham tomorrow. Ramsey gets a hard time off Gooners, especially when Wenger sticks him on the wing. Wojciech Szczesny completed 90 minutes with the under 21 team today ...

Wojciech Szczesny will feature for Arsenal's under-21 side tomorrow, Arsene Wenger has confirmed. The manager added that if the Pole comes through unscathed he may include him in the matchday squad against Fulham on Saturday, although Mannone is more likely to start. Oxlade-Chamberlain will undergo a late fitness test and could feature, as will Aaron Ramsey, while Gibbs, Gervinho and Diaby are confirmed absentees. Lukas Podolski is said to be unhappy at playing out wide on the left for Arsenal, and is hoping for a chance to play as a central striker. His stance echoes that of Theo Walcott, a ...
aron Ramsey will miss Arsenal's Champions League game against Schalke on Tuesday with a groin strain. The Wales midfielder was substituted during the second half of the defeat at Manchester United on Saturday and is replaced by Johan Djourou. Boss Arsene Wenger makes one other change from the loss, James Shea is in for ineligible keeper Damian Martinez. Theo Walcott will be assessed on Tuesday to see if he is well enough to feature after picking up an illness. The 23-year-old has been ill overnight and is a doubt for the Group B encounter, which will not see the return of Wojciech Szczesny (ankle) despite the goalkeeper joining in with training on Monday. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hip), Gervinho (ankle), Kieran Gibbs (thigh), Abou Diaby (thigh) and Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) are all still out. Schalke centre-back Kyrgiakos Papadopoulos is a doubt after suffering a cut above his eyebrow on Saturday.
t’s only normal to say a prayer or two when locking horns with the forces of darkness, and in this case, Arsene Wenger and his Gunners are going to the Netherrealm to play those Red Devils in Old Trafford. The last time Arsenal visited Hades the home ground of the Red Devils, it’s fair to say that they saw *** Like Midas, everything Shrek touched changed to gold…goals, Ashley Young used Wojciech Szczesny for target practice with those two exquisite goals, Nani humiliated the goalie with an impudent chip and the Scourge of Arsenal, Park Ji-Sung, joined the party as well. Arsene Wenger has been quick to point out that the game was quickly forgotten by his side and the nervy win against Swansea paved the way for a great Autumn. After a somewhat topsy-turvy, the Gunners endured another fruitless campaign but finishing at third place was some achievement, judging from the torrid start to the season. The preview to this game has being marred by racism, as it’s believed that referee, Mark Clattenburg, ...
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has ruled Wojciech Szczesny, Kieran Gibbs, Abou Diaby and Gervinho out of the trip to Manchester United.
WE ARE READY FOR THE DEVIL BY samuel gathu Like every well-eaten meal, the entertaining, enthralling and epic victory over Reading has been fully digested in the bellies of everyone connected with Arsenal and with games coming in thick and fast, it’s time to move on to the next one. Arsenal’s next fixture doesn’t bring any fond memories, as it was the venue were the club suffered its worst defeat since the days Merlin was the Chief Wizard of Camelot. I’d learned that Wojciech Szczesny refused to eat dinner after the humiliating defeat because he already ’8′ at Old Trafford. After the game, lots of catch phrases and punchlines saw the light of day but the “I 8-2 be an Arsenal fan right now” line was pretty painful to say the least. Many media Vultures are tipping Robin Van Persie to put up a *** of a show against his former employers, and he’ll certainly be one of the major talking points in the build-up to the game. However, Arsene Wenger has played down the issue of revenge, urging his ...
Gervinho's ankle injury will keep him out of action for three weeks, Arsene Wenger has confirmed. The Arsenal forward turned his ankle during a brief substitute appearance against QPR last weekend. And at his press conference ahead of the weekend trip to Manchester United, Gunners boss Wenger revealed the Ivory Coast international will be out for most of November. That means the 25-year-old is likely to miss the return UEFA Champions League game with Schalke and London derbies with Fulham and Tottenham. The injury deprives Wenger of his top Premier League scorer - three of Gervinho's five goals this season have come in the league. And Arsenal will still be without goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, left-back Kieran Gibbs and midfielder Abou Diaby at Old Trafford.

The Italian keeper Vito Mannone has been covering adequately for the injured duo of Wojciech Szczesny and Lukas Fabianski in between the sticks for Arsenal, despite Arsene Wenger admitting that he expected Mannone to be sold last summer but he couldn’t find a buyer.
Sergio Aguero will return from injury when Manchester City host Arsenal in Sunday's Sky Live game. The forward is available after five weeks out with a knee injury, but Samir Nasri has just a slim chance of facing his old club. A hamstring injury kept Nasri out of the midweek defeat at Real Madrid, and Roberto Mancini said: "I do not think he will be ready." Mario Balotelli is in contention, and Mancini has rubbished suggestions his omission from the squad in Madrid was down to a dispute between player and manager. Vito Mannone will continue in goal for Arsenal after Arsene Wenger revealed that Wojciech Szczesny's ankle problem will keep him out for a further two or three weeks. That means a fourth start of the season for Mannone as Wenger picks from the same squad on duty at Montpellier in midweek. Jack Wilshere is back in training but will feature for the U21 side before he is considered for a senior recall.
Arsenal dominated against Stoke in an edgy clash at the Britannia Stadium but their lack of a cutting edge saw their stuttering start to the season continue in another frustrating goalless draw. The Gunners bossed the game in terms of possession but had limited clear-cut chances as they struggled to open their Barclays Premier League account in the absence of Robin Van Persie. Stoke saw a penalty shout turned down in the edgy clash as Arsenal's three-pronged attack of Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Gervinho failed to make a breakthrough. Gunners manager Arsene Wenger made two changes, dropping Theo Walcott to the bench to hand a first start to Frenchman Giroud with goalkeeper Vito Mannone replacing the injured Wojciech Szczesny. Stoke boss Tony Pulis made two changes, handing a debut to American summer signing Geoff Cameron with Dean Whitehead suspended while Jermaine Pennant returned to the side after recovering from a thigh injury. There was a distinct edge as the game got under way with Arsenal boo ...

Squillaci, “Hey, I’m requesting a transfer too, the club is shaking atmy feet. I’m ready to go to Bastia.” Robin Van Persie, “Who the *** are you? I have never seen you before.” Super Nick, “Hey Robin, guess what, my transfer fee is going to be bigger than yours, because I’mthe best player in the world.” RvP, “Oh, you will… didn’t realise you could be best in the world with a quarter of the goals I scored… Your underwear is still showing.” Wojciech Szczesny, “If you stay around, I will challenge you to lacrosse on Wojciech versus.” RvP, “You cheat on that segment more than Ashley Young at a diving competition.” Alex Song, “Welcome back Robin, Ihear you are leaving. That’s sad. Do you really think De Jong or Nasri will give you a pass as nice as me? Do you think that Nasri will even pass? And if you go to ManUre, there is nobody in their midfield.” RvP, “Rooney will pass to me, and Berbatov will be my friend.” Arsene Wenger, “So you want to leave.” *throws ...

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny says he does not "feel like a proper No. 1" at present and insists he will not recognise himself as the Gunners' main man until he has played more games. - RVP doubted ability to lead attack - Blog: Wigan loss a learning curve Szczesny, 22, has emerged as Arsene Wenger's first-choice keeper this season, earning plaudits for his consistent performances in a position that has caused Arsenal problems in recent years. The Gunners have arguably not had a reliable presence between the posts since David Seaman left the club in 2003, with Jens Lehmann, Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski among those who have tried to fill the Englishman's gloves. Szczesny's assured displays have seen him heralded as the long-term solution for the Gunners, though the player himself insists he still has plenty of work to do, and plenty of games to play, before he can be considered the club's undisputed No. 1.
