Number of goal in Premier League:-. Laurent Koscielny: 2. Mario Balotelli: 0
Arsene Wenger has just left every other team in the Premier League shaking in their football boots after suggesting Alexis Sanchez can get even better. The Chile star scored twice and assisted another as Arsenal eased past Stoke City with a 3-0 victory. Sanchez's stunning solo effort for his first goal came shortly after he had set Laurent Koscielny up for the opener. He capped off the man of the match performance with a second half strike from a free-kick. Since signing from Barcelona in the summer for £32 million, the 26-year-old has scored 18 goals in all competitions and assisted nine. Having been involved in 19 Premier League goals, he is currently the most effective player in England's top division. IMPROVING ON PERFECTION Despite his incredible form, Wenger has suggested Sanchez can get even better, possibly moving up to the level that Luis Suarez reached at Liverpool before his summer move to Barcelona. With a crucial run of games approaching, the Arsenal boss has no doubt how important Sanchez w ...
BARCLAYS Premier League RESULTS ARSENAL VS. Stoke City Alexis Sanchez was again Arsenal's inspiration as they coasted to a 3-0 win over Stoke City on Sunday. The irrepressible Sanchez scored his 11th and 12th Barclays Premier League goals of the season either side of half-time after setting up Laurent Koscielny's early opener at Emirates Stadium. David Ospina was handed a first top-flight start in Arsenal's goal in place of Wojciech Szczesny,.but Stoke were rarely able to get near the Colombian, let alone test him, in a game that was dominated throughout by the hosts. It was a completely different story for Ospina's opposite number Asmir Begovic, to whom Stoke were grateful for keeping the score down as they slipped to defeat at the Gunners for a seventh successive season. Stoke manager Mark Hughes gave a debut to Philipp Wollscheid in defence and was able to call on Bojan Krkic after the Spaniard's hamstring injury, but it was another ex-Barcelona man who stole the headlines, as Sanchez lit up yet anothe ...
Paul Jack Griffiths is at The Home of The Mighty Arsenal Football Club . The Arsenal FC 3 v 0 Stoke City The Arsenal up to 5th with win. Laurent headed an early opener. Alexis goals take season total to 18 and Matty D dislocates shoulder in first half. Alexis Sanchez scored twice as The Arsenal climbed above neighbour's Tottenham and into 5th place in The Premier League with a dominant display against Stoke. Laurent Koscielny took advantage of slack marking to head the hosts into an early lead from Sanchez's cross. The Chile international then finished off a neat move with Tomas Rosicky to double Arsenal's lead before half time. Sanchez 26 added his 2nd goal of the game and 18th of the season from a free kick shortly after the break. It proved a relatively routine victory for an Arsenal side and for David Ospina who retained his place after the 2 - 0 FA Cup 3rd round win over Hull. It was the 26 year old Colombia international's first Premier League start with Wojciech Szczesny dropped to the bench follow ...
Arsenal picked up the maximum three points at the Emirates Stadium when the Gunners defeated Stoke City by a massive three goals to nil, but the victory also came with a big blow for the Arsene Wenger led team as defender Mathieu Debuchy dislocated a shoulder and could be out for a couple of week, depending on what doctors say tomorrow. The 29-year-old has already missed three months of the season with an ankle injury. Calum Chambers and Bellerin. The French right-back collided with Stoke's Marko Arnautovic before landing awkwardly and was replaced by Hector Bellerin after 13 minutes. The Gunners won courtesy of two goals from Alexis Sanchez, who also set up Laurent Koscielny for the other goal.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has praised Alexis Sanchez’ "amazing" quality after the Chilean inspired Arsenal to a 3-0 victory over Stoke City on Sunday. Alexis set up the opening goal for Laurent Koscielny on six minutes before striking twice himself to take his goal tally to 19 in all competitions and seal a deserved win for Arsene Wenger's men. With 13 goals and seven assists, the Chilean has now been directly involved in over half of Arsenal's 37 Premier League goals this season and Oxlade-Chamberlain has no doubts about his team-mate's talent. "Alexis is amazing. He shows it week in week out and that's the most important thing for top players to do," Oxlade-Chamberlain told Sky Sports. "It's about consistency and it's not good enough to just be good one week, everyone wants to see you being great every week. "Alexis has done that all the way through the season. He was brilliant again today with two good goals and obviously he set Laurent's goal up as well. Hopefully it continues for him because he's ha ...
Alexis Sanchez was just too good for Stoke, scoring twice in Arsenal's 3-0 victory. Eddie Keogh/Reuters Stoke City's search for a victory over Arsenal in London continues following this afternoon's 3-0 loss – courtesy of goals from Laurent Koscielny and an Alexis Sanchez double. We could lay blame on the usual door steps. The officials didn't give us the decisions. We were injury ravaged. [ 443 more words. ]
According to the Express, Arsenal are plotting moves worth a total of £50 million for three players this month. Arsene Wenger's top target for the summer is Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, who is valued at £25million. Arsenal's main midfield target for the winter, however, is Sporting Lisbon's William Carvalho. The Portugal international is also attracting interest from Chelsea and Manchester United, and will cost the Gunners at least £20m. One player who looks certain to line up at the Emirates this month is Saint-Etienne's Loic Perrin. The defender will cost Arsenal £6m, and could be paired with compatriot Laurent Koscielny at the back.
2014 Review: Month by month - Part One This was the year Arsenal finally got their hands on more silverware. Here, in our review of 2014, we reflect on how it all unfolded, starting with January to July… Theo Walcott celebrates his goal against Cardiff City JANUARY Having finished 2013 with back-to-back away wins over West Ham and Newcastle, the Gunners rang in the New Year with another victory over Cardiff City… eventually. Two goals in the final two minutes - from Nicklas Bendtner and Theo Walcott - gave Arsenal a 2-0 win on New Year's Day, and kept them top of the Premier League. Just three days later Arsenal got the FA Cup campaign off to the best possible start, with a 2-0 home win over Tottenham Hotspur. "All the players want to win something this year," Laurent Koscielny said. "We will work hard for this but we know the season is very long and very hard, so we need to work together. If we do, we can win something for Arsenal." The victory was marred by an anterior cruciate ligament injury to W ...
For a change, the win was not about Arsenal’s precision in attack but their determination and courage at the back, helped by Laurent Koscielny, back for only his second appearance during nearly three months of problems with his Achilles tendons. Koscielny is always a solid presence, but others stepped up too in this department. Per Mertesacker produced one terrific clearance, heading behind for a corner as Andy Carroll loomed over him, and Francis Coquelin, making his first Premier League start in nearly two years, added bite in midfield. In fact, Allardyce can be flattered by the team Wenger selected because the Arsenal boss rarely tinkers on account of the opposition. Coquelin was brought in alongside Mathieu Flamini to fight for the knock-downs won by Carroll in the air. Arsenal finished the game with the only six senior defenders in the first-team squad all on the pitch. 'We need to be stable defensively,' said Wenger. 'We’ve missed important players at the back. 'I felt Coquelin played well. He t ...

LONDON EVENING STANDARD ONLINE Surely Arsene Wenger does not still believe Laurent Koscielny alone can fix all of Arsenal's problems? Arsenal were moments away from a morale-boosting win at Anfield but a point was the minimum Liverpool deserved.
Ramsey suffers another injury Aaron Ramsey looks set to miss Arsenal's festive fixture programme after manager Arsene Wenger confirmed the midfielder has sustained a hamstring injury. Ramsey, 23, scored a memorable volley in Wednesday's 4-1 Champions League win at Galatasaray, but it seems that may be the last significant contribution he makes to the Gunners' cause in 2014. "We have the scan last night and I don't know enough the extent of his injury," Wenger told a news conference, adding that he could not put a timescale on the Wales international's recovery period. "It's a shame because he was getting close to his form." Ramsey's absence is one of many concerns Wenger is dealing with ahead of Saturday's home game against Newcastle, with his defensive injury woes increased as Nacho Monreal and Laurent Koscielny are also out of this weekend's match. With Calum Chambers suspended, Wenger faces some big decisions in selecting a back line to face a Newcastle side that ended Chelsea's unbeaten start to the s ...

Arsene Wenger reveals that Aaron Ramsey, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal are all out of tomorrow's match with Newcastle.
WHY Arsene Wenger MUST GO...!! Abou Diaby, Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal, Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey , Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott will all be absent for Alan Pardew's trip to London. But despite the ever increasing injury problems at the club, Wenger has not promised to enter the transfer market in January when the window reopens. "If everybody is fit and available, we don't need to go into the transfer market," said Wenger. "But we have to consider that there could be a question mark with Koscielny's fitness and we have to go out on the transfer market. "There will be very little activity, because all the big clubs want to keep their players, and it will be as usual quiet in the first three weeks and a bit frenetic in the last three or four days."
Arsenal man of the moment Aaron Ramsey has been ruled out of Newcastle United’s tough battle at the Emirates. Speaking on Ramsey, Wenger said: “We got the scan last night, I don’t know enough to give the extent of his injury.” Mikel Arteta (calf), Theo Walcott (groin), Mesut Ozil (knee), goalkeeper David Ospina (thigh), Abou Diaby (calf) and Jack Wilshere are also out. And Mathieu Debuchy may be forced to play centre-back with three defenders also missing for Arsenal in Laurent Koscielny (calf), Nacho Monreal (ankle) and Calum Chambers (suspended). ARSENAL squad: Szczesny, Gibbs, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Bellerin, Flamini, Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sanchez, Welbeck, Giroud, Martinez, Podolski, Campbell, O’Connor, Maitland-Niles, Ajayi, Akpom.

As wellas the injury problems continuing to pile up for Arsenal, with Jack Wilshere out for a while and now both of our first choice keepers unavailable as well as Danny Welbeck. At least Arsene Wenger had the good news about Laurent Koscielny, but the Frenchman has decided not to rush the French centre back and has stuck with the same back four that has struggled in recent games. Another major talking point is the inclusion in the line up of our young French striker Yaya Sanogo, who is still looking for his firts senior Gunners goal. But his pace and power in the centre forard role means that Wenger does not have to change the system. There are striking options on the bench, with Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell wjo have both been champing at the bit to get some game time, so let’s hope they ...

Arsenal To Beat Chelsea To Signing Of Championship Starlet Ipswich Town defender Tyrone Mings looks likely to move to the Premier League in the near future as Arsenal join the race for his signature, according to the Mirror . The 21-year-old has been impressing in the second tier of English football and has already attracted the likes of Chelsea, Everton, Manchester United and Newcastle United. The Blues were believed to be leading the race for Mings having identified the Englishman as the ideal long-term successor to captain John Terry. However, Arsene Wenger is keen to beat his London rivals to the youngster as he looks to bolster his defence in the January transfer window. The Gunners started the 2014/15 season with only six recognised first team defenders and long-term injuries to Mathieu Debuchy and Laurent Koscielny has reduced the squad to its bare bones. Wenger has been given £20m by the hierarchy at the Emirates Stadium and would be willing to sanction half of that to land Mings. The 65-year-old ...

Arsene Wenger could be set to miss out on his main transfer target after it was revealed Chelsea are set to begin talks with Athletic Bilbao over the signing of highly-rated youngster Aymeric Laporte. The 20-year-old has reportedly been lined up by the Gunners as the man they want to solve their defensive crisis at the Emirates, with Wenger only able to deploy one natural centre-back in Per Mertesacker after Laurent Koscielny was sidelined. Despite being linked with an imminent move for the French youngster, the Metro have reported that Jose Mourinho is looking to beat his rival Wenger to the signature of the youngster, and will open talks in the hope a £32m deal can be completed. Chelsea are looking to bring a new defender to Stamford Bridge in the summer, with the club looking for a long-term replacement for captain John Terry. Moves for Gerard Pique and Borussia Dortmund star Mats Hummels have been touted, but it now looks likely Laporte could be the next addition in west London. After claiming that A ...

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has blamed Arsene Wenger's inability to make changes during key moments for Arsenal's defeat against Swansea City. The north London club took the lead early in the second half from Alexis Sanchez's goal. The Gunners were leading till the final quarter of the match before Gylfi Sigurdsson's brilliant free kick helped the Swans equalise. Arsenal were without the services of Laurent Koscielny and Mathieu Debuchy, who are on the sidelines with long-term injuries. Calum Chambers played in the right-back position, while left-back Nacho Monreal was partnering Per Mertesacker in the heart of the defence. Lack of physical presence helped Jefferson Montero to put in the cross for Bafetimbi Gomis to score the winner in the 78th minute. The former Liverpool defender believes Wenger could have changed his tactics and avoided another defeat. "I thought Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had a good game in terms of going forward for Arsenal but at half-time it was clear Chambers is having one of th ...

Ospina out for up to three months, confirms Wenger It is exactly the same (injury) . He had his first injury in Nice, it was a knee problem and I think he was a bit rushed back,” Wenger told a press conference. "He didn't use his legs so his muscle became weaker, then he got injured during the World Cup. And after that he came to us injured, from the World Cup. It took him two months to play a game. "I had to bring him on against Galatasaray without a warm-up, without being prepared and he had a recurrence of that injury. That means he is out for two to three months. "Now we have to be really careful because he has a recurrence of a thigh injury that's very difficult. It's a long-term injury." The goalkeeper’s fitness worries only deepen Arsene Wenger’s selection issues, with another six players, including Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny, also currently sidelined.

Arsene Wenger defends decision to allow Arsenal duo Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny go on international duty
Arsenal Boss Confirms Plans To Sign Defender In January Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the Gunners will look to bring in a new defender during the January transfer window, as reported by the Daily Mirror. The north London club recruited heavily in the summer, but fans were left disappointed at the end of the transfer window when Calum Chambers was the only defensive addition. Chambers joined the club from Southampton for £16 million, and has impressed since the start of the new season. This recruitment strategy has looked increasingly short sighted, with Arsenal suffering a huge raft of injuries to their back line. Mathieu Debuchy remains injured, and likely will do until the new year, with Laurent Koscielny and Kieran Gibbs also missing chunks of the campaign. However, Wenger confirmed at the club’s annual general meeting today that the club would look to bring in another defender in January, which will be music to the ears of Arsenal fans. He said: “We bought good players, I belie ...
helsea five points clear at the top Costa scores ninth goal in seven league games Wenger not beaten Mourinho in 12 attempts Eden Hazard scores second goal of the season Chelsea cemented their position at the top of the Premier League with victory over Arsenal as Arsene Wenger's winless streak against Jose Mourinho was extended to 12 games. The old adversaries squared up in an ugly first-half moment when Wenger shoved Mourinho in the chest in Chelsea's technical area after Gary Cahill's challenge on Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez. A semblance of order was restored although the tension still resurfaced - but as so often, it was Mourinho who had the last word with a win that puts the Blues five points ahead of second-placed Manchester City. Eden Hazard's first-half penalty put them on their way after he was fouled by Laurent Koscielny, while Diego Costa's ninth goal in seven games since his £32m summer move from Atletico Madrid wrapped up the win. This never threatened to be a repeat of Chelsea's 6-0 thrash ...

How Arsene Wenger must despise his journeys home from Stamford Bridge. Almost always defeated, frequently humbled and usually sent on his way from Jose Mourinho's fortress with patronising and loaded words from the Portuguese ringing in his ears. Arsenal followed their feisty manager's lead by being up for the fight in their latest attempt to bridge the divide between north and west London. But, when push came to shove, touchline tetchiness and on-field tenacity was not enough. Arsenal proved to be middleweights against the heavyweights of Chelsea. Mourinho's side have scored eight goals without reply in this fixture since his return to SW6 last season. It is a damning statistic, as is the extension of Wenger's winless streak versus his nemesis to 12 matches. Yet the scars from Arsenal's first league defeat of the season will heal far quicker than they did after the 6-0 humiliation in Wenger's 1000th match in March. Watching Eden Hazard weave between defenders as if they were training cones and Diego Cost ...
