welcome marinka Sports News Arsene Wenger says Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has been playing with a point to prove as he prepares for his first reunion with former club Manchester United on Saturday. Welbeck has impressed for the Gunners since his £16 million ($25.1 million, 20 million euros) transfer deadline day switch from United. The England international's five goals in 12 appearances have gone some way to silencing the critics, including United boss Louis Van Gaal, who said Welbeck wasn't up to the standard required at Old Trafford. Arsenal manager Wenger knows he has benefitted from Welbeck's determination to show he can make it at the highest level and he expects the forward, a boyhood United fan who had been at the club for 11 years, to be fully motivated when United come to the Emirates Stadium this weekend. "You can take every challenge in a positive way and that is what Danny did," Wenger said. "You have to understand Louis Van Gaal did not have Welbeck under his command for a long time and ...
Giggs defends youth policy after Welbeck sale Ryan Giggs insists Manchester United will never abandon the club’s tradition of developing young players and turning them into first-team stars, despite the recent sale of Danny Welbeck to Barclays Premier League rivals Arsenal. The 23-year-old England international and former Academy graduate swapped Old Trafford for the Emirates Stadium on transfer deadline day with Colombian hotshot Radamel Falcao effectively replacing him in Louis Van Gaal’s squad. While it is always sad to see a local lad moving on, particularly one who has been with the club since he was a child, Giggs has quashed suggestions the Reds have given up on a famed youth policy that allowed him to graduate from the Class of ‘92’. “United will never change,” Giggs explained at Soccerex, an annual conference that has brought more of football’s movers and shakers to Manchester. “The history of the club is to play exciting football, give youngsters a chance and keep to its traditio ...
The versatile Belgium centre-back has arrived in Catalunya to seal a switch to Camp Nou, after snubbing interest from Manchester United EXCLUSIVE By William Joyce Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen is in Spain to undergo a medical and complete his €19 million move to Barcelona. The Blaugrana agreed a deal for the Belgium international with the Gunners on Friday, with the centre-half snubbing interest from Manchester United to seal a switch to La Liga. Arsene Wenger had previously admitted that he would rather sell the 28-year-old to a foreign club rather than a domestic rival and, after being given a straight choice between Old Trafford and Camp Nou, Vermaelen plumped for Catalunya. United had long been on Vermaelen's tail, with talk of their interest first emerging during the World Cup. New boss Louis Van Gaal is on the look-out for ball-playing centre-backs to fit into his 3-5-2 system and had sanctioned a move for the forme Arsenal captain, who has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium ...
Thomas Vermaelen to complete Man Utd transfer? Manchester United and Arsenal have come to terms on a deal that will see club captain Thomas Vermaelen complete a transfer switch from the Emirates Stadium to Old Trafford. Vermaelen has struggled for regular first team action in recent seasons. The Belgium international has seemingly decided to make a transfer elsewhere after Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger agreed to sell the centre back. Whilst most Arsenal fans would prefer that their club captain would not make a move to bitter rivals Man Utd; most will forgive Vermaelen after his fall from grace since the decision of manager Arsene Wenger to play Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny as first choice defenders. The Belgian is currently entering the final 12 months of his contract at the Gunners and will open talks with Louis Van Gaal as soon as the World Cup has finished.
TRANSFER GOSSIP Chelsea's Eden Hazard has been linked with a return to France Chelsea will not let Eden Hazard, 23, join Paris St-Germain and the French champions have all but given up hope of signing the Belgian international, says coach Laurent Blanc. Manchester United defender Alexander Buttner is leaving Old Trafford because new boss Louis Van Gaal doesn't rate him.

Atletico Madrid Offered Manchester United Misfit But Favour Move For £18m Gunners Star by Mark Brus June 14th, 2014 Comments1 Santi Cazorla Arsenal Atletico unsure over Nani move. Atletico Madrid are keen to pursue a move for Arsenal star Santi Cazorla, despite being offered the chance to sign Nani from Manchester United, according to AS. The Spanish champions are likely to be in the market for some new attacking midfield signings this summer after the departure of key playmaker Diego Ribas, and Cazorla has recently emerged as one of the club’s top targets in that position. The Gunners midfielder has impressed since making the move to the Emirates Stadium from Malaga in the summer of 2012, but has previously hinted that he would welcome the chance to play in La Liga again towards the end of his career. Atletico could be willing to pay around £18m to sign the 29-year-old this summer, though they are also thought to be mulling over an offer from Manchester United, who could offer Portuguese winger Nani ...
Man United move for Morata Let's begin with the curious rumour that Alvaro Morata is ready to jump ship at Real Madrid to join Manchester United this summer. According to The Daily Star, the 21-year-old has decided to leave the Santiago Bernabeu in pursuit of first-team football which, of course, he's bound to find at a club that already boast Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney in their armoury. Perhaps Morata should give Javier Hernandez a quick call to ask about the squad rotation policy at Old Trafford -- with no European football next season it looks like United's back-up strikers will be given even less playing time. Manuel Queimadelos Alonso/Getty Images Sadly for Real fans, young Alvaro Morata's future might lie outside Madrid. The Spain Under-21 international is also a long-term target for Arsenal and was linked with a loan move to the Emirates Stadium in January. It's thought that Arsene Wenger will rekindle his interest in the forward, but Real Madrid are likely to insist on a buy-back clause sho ...
Rumours, gossip, transfer news and signings from all of the top European clubs. It's Transfer Talk time. Arsenal: We're bringing Cescy back This is a rumour to get Arsenal fans excited. According to The Mirror, Arsene Wenger is keen to pursue a deal to bring Cesc Fabregas back to the Emirates Stadium just three years after he left for Barcelona. Fabregas has enjoyed mixed fortunes at the Camp Nou and is apparently open to a return to the Premier League just 12 months after he was strongly linked with a move to Manchester United. It's thought that the Old Trafford outfit will renew their interest in the midfielder, but Arsenal have first refusal on their former captain and could secure his signature for around 35 million pounds. Bernard interest building Another name on Arsenal's wish list is Brazilian winger Bernard, who is seeking an exit route from Shakhtar Donetsk. The social unrest in Ukraine has prompted a number of the league's top players to look for transfers this summer, with Bernard one of the m ...

LONDON EVENING STANDARD Inter Milan have stepped up their talks with Chelsea over taking £50m striker Fernando Torres on loan next season. Chelsea need to make room in their squad for the signing of at least one striker in the summer, with Atletico Madrid star Diego Costa manager Jose Mourinho's prime target. Tottenham have announced they could leave White Hart Lane for a new stadium in three years.

City condemn Man United to a 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford to go second in Premier League table with two games in hand. Arsenal conceded a last gasp own goal to share the spoils with Swansea 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium. Everton's fine form continued as they beat Newcastle 3-0 to maintain 5th spot in the log. Bayern Munich sealed their 24th Bundesliga title with a comfortable 3-1 win over Hertha Berlin.
Chelsea have been offered the chance to sign Bayern Munich star Mario Mandzukic, but it could spark a Premier League transfer tussle between them and two of their biggest rivals in Arsenal and Manchester United. Jose Mourinho is on the lookout for some more firepower in the centre-forward positions and has been told Mandzukic is ready to leave the Allianz Arena in the summer, according to The Sun. However, the report also claims both Arsene Wenger and David Moyes could be ready to step in and pitch the benefits of Emirates Stadium and Old Trafford respectively if it looks like an offer will be made out of Stamford Bridge. Though it is the Blues whom have been given the first green light by the Croatia international's camp. Arsenal and Chelsea are in similar situations in that both clubs have what many believe to be insufficient personnel in the centre-forward position. Mourinho has a number of options in the form of Fernanado Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba, but none of them have been able to consistent ...
Exclusive: Arsenal to Sell Pair Ahead Of £18m Bid to Re-Sign Robin Van Persie as Wenger Prepares to Make Room for Man United Striker.Arsene Wenger is preparing a summer bid to re-sign Man United striker Robin Van Persie following reports that the Dutchman isn’t happy with life at Old Trafford under boss David Moyes. CaughtOffside understands that Arsenal manager Wenger is to launch a bid in the region of £18m for 30 year old marksman Van Persie who appears open to the prospect of a move back to the Emirates Stadium. Van Persie is one of a number of senior Man United stars who have questioned the ability of David Moyes to lead the Premier League title holders and the very real prospect of failure to secure a Champions League berth will further fuel speculation of a possible summer departure. In his first season at Man United Van Persie scored 30 goals in all competitions and was a key member of a side Sir Alex Ferguson led to a domestic title but 2013/14 has proven a real calamity and a move back to Ar ...
Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has agreed a deal to join Inter. The Serbia international, who announced in January that he intended to leave Old Trafford this summer, will sign a two-year contract worth €3 million (potentially rising to €3.5m) per year. Vidic is understood to have informed United of his decision to move to Italy after a deal was agreed following the club's 0-0 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium last Wednesday night. Piero Ausilio, Inter's general manager, has been in close contact with Vidic's entourage since January andspoke in glowing terms of the defender after he made his announcement to leave United. Ausilio was in attendance for the Premier League clash against the Gunners where a gentleman's agreement was struck between the two parties. Erick Thohir, the Inter chairman, views Vidic as a potential ambassador for the club and is looking to use the player's vast experience as a means to engage his home nation's interest in football and open up the Indonesian marke ...
Boss draws on Arsenal win David Moyes is looking to one of Manchester United’s best results of the season to help bounce back from the disappointment of the draw with Fulham. The Reds have the chance to do ‘the double’ over Arsenal on Wednesday at Emirates Stadium, having taken the spoils with a hard-fought win over Arsene Wenger’s side at Old Trafford in November. Robin Van Persie’s header against his previous club was enough for the Reds to claim all three points, and Moyes hopes the outcome of that meeting helps inspire his side in North London this time out. “We'll always try to get a good result against them. We got a good result against them at Old Trafford earlier on in the season and we'll try to do the same again," he said. “I think we've played better in several games, but in that one we got the one goal and that sometimes makes the difference. We are a top side and hopefully we’ll go and show that. We'll play well and do everything we can to pick up all three points.” The head ...
Gunners, United seek solace in Emirates 11 February By SAPA London – Both reeling from embarrassing weekend results in the Premier League, Arsenal and Manchester United will each be determined to restore credibility when they meet at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday. While Arsenal ceded first place to Chelsea after being blown away in a 5-1 defeat at Liverpool on Saturday, United could only record a 2-2 draw at home to Fulham, who had started the game at the foot of the table. Arsenal's capitulation ended a run of 10 games without defeat in all competitions, but manager Arsene Wenger can at least console himself that it left his side only a point off the summit. Silver linings are not quite as easy to find for United, who trail fourth-place Liverpool by nine points and therefore seem destined to miss out on a place in next season's Champions League. The defending champions dominated Sunday's game against Fulham at Old Trafford, enjoying 75 percent of possession and sending no fewer than 81 crosses into ...
THIS AFTERNOON'S BIG MATCH ENGLAND - FA CUP KICK OFF AT 17.15 GMT FACTS ARSENAL Arsenal sit atop the Premier League on the back of their 2-0 win over Cardiff and will look to continue their fine run of form against their North London neighbours. Lukas Podolski is expected to lead the attack against Spurs, with Olivier Giroud struggling with an ankle problem and Nicklas Bendtner likely to miss out after injuring himself in Wednesday's victory. Abou Diaby, Yaya Sanogo, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Özil and Kieran Gibbs are all likely to miss out through injury, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could make the bench as he looks to return from a lengthy layoff. TOTTENHAM Spurs head to the Emirates Stadium full of confidence following their 2-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford on New Year's Day. Tim Sherwood may name an unchanged XI for the North London derby, although Emmanuel Adebayor is a doubt after being stretchered off in the victory, but will be assessed closer to kick off.

The FA Cup third-round draw has handed Arsenal a North London derby with neighbours Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium.

Wenger content with improved Arsenal Despite their "unlucky" 1-0 defeat to Manchester United, the Gunners boss is pleased with the strides that his side have taken this season and hopes to bounce back quickly Arsenal's last three performances have underlined their level of improvement this season, according to manager Arsene Wenger. The Premier League leaders beat Liverpool 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium before overcoming Borussia Dortmund 1-0 away from home in the Champions League on Wednesday. Despite losing 1-0 against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, Wenger feels that his side showed again how far they have come.

Robin Van Persie does not need to respect Arsenal anymore Robin Van Persie let it all out against Arsenal - and it was his right to do so Robin Van Persie's goal against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, which ultimately proved to be the winner for Manchester United, was celebrated with great passion from the Netherlands striker, and quite rightly so. This strike represented the third in three games that Van Persie has scored against the Gunners since he left in acrimonious circumstances over a year ago, and afforded him another opportunity to mark a goal with respectful silence. After scoring at Old Trafford last year Van Persie made an almost apologetic gesture, so soon had his departure from Arsenal been, while he chose not to celebrate in the reverse fixture at the Emirates Stadium after netting from the spot. On the most recent occasion, however, Van Persie's face became contorted in almost demented joy, and prompted him to slide on his knees, arms outstretched as he had so often done during his time with ...
Premier League: 5 huge transfers that would change the title race !! 5. Javier Hernandez to Tottenham Despite proving his worth as a reliable goalscorer during his three-year stint at Old Trafford, Manchester United striker Hernandez has been widely linked with a move away from the Premier League champions due to his seeming inability to command a regular staring berth. 4. Diego Costa to Arsenal Brazilian-born Costa - who was recently the subject of fierce debate following his decision to pledge his international future to Spain - is arguably Europe's most in-form striker. Having notched a staggering 13 goals in just 12 La Liga games for Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid, the 25-year-old is a truly prolific talent. Linked with a potential big-money move to Premier League leaders Arsenal, his presence at the Emirates Stadium as a tremendous alternative to Frenchman Olivier Giroud would surely fully establish the Gunners as genuine title contenders. 3. Miralem Pjanic to Manchester United Although United appea ...
Difficult loss today. United had a few more chances that they took advantage of. They were always going to have more chances at Old Trafford. The support we had at The Local today was great. We were in good spirits and supported Arsenal for all 90 minutes. I can not say the same for the United support. If you took pictures, please send them over. I'll create a match day album to share with everyone. No matches on the weekend due to the international break. Arsenal v Southampton is next and it is a surprisingly big match. 1st and 3rd in the table meet at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, November 23rd. 9am. Thank you for the support. Eric.
Arsenal can beat anyone - Ozil 10 November 2013, 13:18 Mesut Ozil says Arsenal are ready to take on all-comers after proving that they can maintain their fine early-season form. The Gunners stumbled out of the Premier League blocks on the opening weekend, but then spent big to land Ozil on transfer deadline day and have not looked back. Only two defeats have been suffered in all competitions since coming up short against Aston Villa, and one of those was avenged in midweek as they edged out Borussia Dortmund in the Uefa Champions League. Ozil believes that showing in Germany proves that Arsenal are the real deal and he is delighted to have linked up with a squad at Emirates Stadium that is brimming with confidence. Ahead of Sunday's crucial clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford, the talented 25-year-old told The Sun: "The message after Wednesday's win is that now Arsenal can beat any team in Europe. "Maybe in the past they have struggled against some bigger clubs. But, as of this week, we have show ...
Chelsea dispose of Arsenal Chelsea booked their place in the fifth round of the Capital One Cup at Arsenal's expense as goals from Cesar Azpilicueta and Juan Mata clinched a 2-0 win at Emirates Stadium. Elsewhere, Javier Hernandez scored a brace to ensure Manchester United secured a comfortable 4-0 victory over Norwich City at Old Trafford, while Fulham lost 4-3 at Leicester and West Ham beat Burnley 2-0, Jose Mourinho made ten changes to his Chelsea side for the trip to Arsenal but that did not hinder his team as they overcame the Premier League leaders 2-0. Azpilicueta scored the opening goal of the game on 25 minutes as he pounced on a mistake from Carl Jenkinson, whose header back to Lukasz Fabianski was too weak. Arsenal improved in the early stages of the second half and brought on Mesut Ozil in a bid to aid their chances of a comeback, but Mata's fine strike in the 66th minute wrapped up the win for the Blues. Manchester United cruised to a 4-0 triumph against Norwich City with the help of two goal ...
Jack Wilshere's second-half strike earned Arsenal a point at West Brom and returned the Gunners to the top of the Premier League on goals scored. The Baggies took the lead when an unmarked Claudio Yacob headed home Morgan Amalfitano's cross. Nicolas Anelka missed two good chances to double the home side's lead shortly before Wilshere's deflected 20-yard shot levelled for Arsenal. Olivier Giroud almost won it for the visitors but Boaz Myhill denied him. Defeat would have been harsh on Steve Clarke's side, who followed last weekend's victory against champions Manchester United with a slick performance which saw them become the first team to take points off Arsenal since Aston Villa won at Emirates Stadium on the opening day. The Baggies were composed in possession and a constant threat in the final third as the fluid movement and creativity of their front four continually exposed the Arsenal defence. England Under-21 international Saido Berahino, who scored the winner at Old Trafford last week, produced ano ...
Preview: West Brom v Arsenal, Sun. 4pm, The Hawthorns Billed as Conquerers of Old Trafford look to claim another big-four pelt. The lowdown Come on, hands up. How many of you said Arsenal were doomed after their opening-day defeat to Aston Villa? I don’t believe you. OK, I’ll afford you one little white lie, but now it’s time for a fess up. How many of you expected West Brom to beat Manchester United in their own backyard? Really? Even with David Moyes’ side desperately needing a win? Even, when you consider the Baggies' last win at Old Trafford was in 1978? Still keeping your hands in the air? You’re all fibbers. Not even Mystic Meg could have called this. If Arsenal maintain their form we’ll have run out of superlatives by Christmas. The Gunners delivered another stirring display in the Champions League on Tuesday – dismantling Napoli with ease at the Emirates Stadium. The North Londoners have now won 10 games on the bounce, including a win over West Brom in the League Cup on penalties. D ...
Reasons why Arsenal is the Best-Running club in the history Of EPL: 1. A host of other Premier League clubs crave the stability that Arsenal take for granted. Arsene Wenger has been at the helm for more than 16 years, and during that period he has become synonymous with Arsenal Football Club. Even when Arsenal were taken over by American Stan Kroenke in 2010, they retained the board of custodians who had seen them through the difficult move to the Emirates Stadium. Peter Hill-Wood has been chairman since 1982, following in the footsteps of his father, Denis Hill-Wood. There is no club in the Premier League that can match Arsenal's extraordinary stability. 2. Part of the reason that Arsenal have had such stability in the managerial position is that they've granted Arsene Wenger his all-important request for absolute power. Like Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, Arsene Wenger is granted power over all football affairs at the club. From youth development all the way up to the first team, Wenger is allo ...

Arsenal Favourites to Sign Unwanted Man United Winger Nani . Old Trafford wide-man strongly linked with surprise move to the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal are now the surprise favourites to sign Man United winger Nani according to the Daily Star. The 26 year old Portuguese international played a limited role in Man United’s Premier League title winning campaign, making just seven starts, and will perhaps be chiefly remembered in 2012/13 for the harsh red card he was handed during the club’s Champions League defeat to Real Madrid. Nani’s first team involvement, already constrained by the presence of Danny Welbeck, Luis Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young ahead of him in the pecking order, will be even further limited by the arrival of Wilfried Zaha. Galatasaray had looked likely to sign the Old Trafford wide-man but their £6m bid was turned down flat by Man United and the Turkish club have elected to give up their chase to sign the experienced attacker. Nani has just a year to run on his current contract ...
Liverpool plan £150m Anfield expansion Liverpool are set to take a major step closer to a £150 million redevelopment of Anfield by submitting a planning application before the start of next season. - Blog: A question of progress Managing director Ian Ayre has confirmed that plans are on course for the rebuilding programme, which would see the Main Stand and Anfield Road End expanded, increasing the capacity to around 60,000. That would potentially make the ground the second biggest in the Top Flight, behind the 76,000-capacity Old Trafford. Arsenal's Emirates Stadium is currently the next largest, as it can hold just over 60,000 fans. The plans come soon after reports emerged that Manchester City are planning to increase the size of their Etihad Stadium to house as many as 54,000 fans. Last October, Liverpool announced that they planned to stay at Anfield rather than pushing ahead with proposals for a new stadium in neighbouring Stanley Park, seeking to expand their current ground's 45,000 capacity. But ...

Arsenal are believed to be keen to land a marquee striker this summer, and Arsene Wenger has already revealed he would be interested in Rooney should Manchester United decide to sell. The 27-year-old has endureda difficult season at Old Trafford, relegated to the supporting cast behind Robin Van Persie and often played out of position on thewing or in midfield. This week Goal revealed Rooney will consider a move to the Emirates Stadium should they meet his wage demands , and the player himself admits playing up front again is his main priority. "In the years to come, that might be somewhere I couldplay, but, right now, I'm definitely a centre-forward. I'm after more goals," Rooney told FourFourTwo . "I've played up front on m ...
He is believed to be keen on being themarquee player in the team once again after seeing his status downgraded at Old Trafford last season, while the opportunity for a fresh challenge at an established Champions League club and playing alongside fellow England internationals Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlainis also said to appeal to Rooney. A transfer fee of £20-25million is affordable for Arsenal but the Londoners will have to make Rooney the best-paid player in the club’s history to entice him to Emirates Stadium. He has two years remaining on a United contract worth up to £250,000-a-week and will not accept a drop in salary. Arsenal have employed a tight wage structure in recent years, with their current top earners Theo Walcott and Thomas Vermaelen on around £90,000-a-week. However, the cash-rich North Londoners will be armed with a kitty of up to £100m this summer and have also recently secured lucrative new sponsorship and kit manufacturing contracts with Emirates and Pum ...
Last Transfers News: 1- West Ham's €17m bid for Negredo rejected, says Sevilla president The Premier League outfit had an offer worth up to €20 million swiftly turned down by both club and player in April, with the striker uninterested in a move to Upton Park. 2- Koscielny: I will leave Arsenal if trophy drought continues The defender is ready to exit the Emirates Stadium this summer unless the Gunners are ready to show the ambition to fight for their first piece of silverware in over eight years. 3- Montpellier president confirms Aston Villa bid for Belhanda The Midlands club are the only Premier League side to have made a concrete offer for the Moroccan, but face competition from AC Milan, Inter, Atletico Madrid and Galatasaray. 4- 'I am very happy in Manchester' - De Gea dismisses United exit talk The goalkeeper has rejected rumours of a potential move back to Spain after coming into his own in his second season following a disappointing first year at Old Trafford. 5- Rooney open to summer Arsenal ...
There has been also news that Man United are said to be monitoring developments at the Emirates Stadium closely ahead of a possible summer bid for captain Thomas Vermaelen . The 27 year old defender has been frozen out of the first team starting eleven after a very indifferent campaign and Wenger is apparently ready to listen to offers for the Belgian international though one wonders if the idea of selling another player to Man United, after controversially allowing Robin Van Persie to move to Old Trafford, is a move the North London club are willing to accept.

Nooo! it would be stupid to let go of Jordan just as he's hitting form! Anfield club interested in signing Sunderland goalkeeper Liverpool are to join Arsenal and Manchester United in the race to sign Sunderland’s Belgian international goalkeeper Simon Mignolet in the summer. The 24-year-old Mignolet is in much demand thanks to his performances between the posts for Sunderland this season – a campaign in which he has made more saves than any other Premier League goalkeeper. Arsenal are preparing a move for him at the end of the season to replace Wojciech Szczesny as number one at the Emirates Stadium, while Manchester United as considering him as an alternative option to David De Gea at Old Trafford. But with doubts over the long-term future of Pepe Reina at Anfield, Liverpool are considering a move for Mignolet, who has two years of his contract to run at Sunderland with talks only just commencing on new terms.

Manchester United and Arsenal negotiated testing replays in the FA Cup to both win 1-0 and reach the fourth round on Wednesday, while Chelsea’s slim title chances in the English Premier League were dented by squandering a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at home to Southampton. United was reliant on an early goal from England striker Wayne Rooney, playing his first game in three weeks after a knee injury, to squeeze past West Ham at Old Trafford and earn a match against Fulham. Rooney later missed a penalty. “In the FA Cup anything can happen so we are pleased to get through,” veteran United midfielder Ryan Giggs said. Arsenal left it late to seal a deserved victory at Emirates Stadium, with Jack Wilshere capping a superb display with an 86th-minute winner to knock out a tired-looking Swansea. Second-tier Brighton, the third-round conqueror of Newcastle, is next for Arsene Wenger’s team. “He is a complete midfielder,” Wenger said of Wilshere, who recently returned to action after a 14-month injury ab ...

Manchester United will face Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid in a mouth-watering Champions League last-16 showdown - Celtic are playing Italian champions Juventus and Arsenal will take on last season's runners- up Bayern Munich. United's clash with Real - which will see Cristiano Ronaldo face his former team - was the pick of the ties, and Sir Alex Ferguson's men have the advantage of playing away first. Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 appearances for United, but it was another Ronaldo - the Brazilian striker - who took the honours when the clubs last faced each other in 2003. He scored a hat-trick at Old Trafford as Real went through 6-5 on aggregate. Cristiano Ronaldo's last match for United was in the Champions League final defeat by Barcelona, after which he moved to Madrid for a world record £80m transfer. United will play the first leg at the Bernabeu on February 13 with the return at Old Trafford on March 5. Arsenal and Celtic, who were group runners-up, will both play their second legs away. Arsenal w ...
West Ham will move into the Premier League's second-biggest stadium when they swap the Boleyn Ground for the Olympic Stadium, with the Hammers' new home behind only Old Trafford in terms of capacity. The Olympic Stadium currently holds 80,000 spectators but will be reduced to 60,000+ and altered to fit football purpose after West Ham were named as the London Legacy Development Corporation's first choice tenants. Arsenal's 60,361 Emirates Stadium will be narrowly beaten by the capacity of the Hammers' new home, but both will still be lagging behind Manchester United's 75,765-seater ground arena. Old Trafford is not, however, the largest association football stadium in Europe and, in fact, it fails to even come close to the Camp Nou, which accommodates almost 100,000 supporters. The highest ever attendance at the Camp Nou came in the days before all-seater stadiums, when 120,000 Catalans crammed in to watch Barcelona take on Juventus in March 1986. Wembley Stadium, the self-proclaimed 'Home of Football', is ...

Ashburton Grove, known for sponsorship reasons as the Emirates Stadium or simply The Emirates, is an association football stadium located in Islington, North London, England. It is the current home of Arsenal Football Club. At a capacity of 60,361, the Emirates is the third-largest football stadium in England after Wembley and Old Trafford and fourth-largest in the United Kingdom. In 1997, Arsenal started exploring the possibility of relocating to a new stadium, having been denied planning permission by Islington Council to expand its then home ground of Highbury. After considering various options, the club settled on purchasing an industrial and waste disposal estate in Ashburton Grove and submitted their planning brief to the public in 2000. In spite of opposition to the move by local residents and club shareholders, Arsenal succeeded in winning the council's approval to which manager Arsène Wenger later described as being the "biggest decision in Arsenal's history since the board opted to bring Herber ...
Manchester United have completed the signing of Arsenal captain Robin Van Persie on a four-year deal. Van Persie, 29, is believed to have cost United £24 million and has joined the club in time to make his debut against Everton on Monday night. It is reported he will earn £250,000 per week at Old Trafford. Van Persie said: “It’s an honour to sign for Manchester United. I am looking forward to following in the footsteps of so many great strikers, bringing my experience and playing my part to help the team compete for the biggest trophies in the game. I can’t wait to get started.” The Netherlands international forced Arsenal into a sale after publicly stating he would not extend his contract, which had only one year left to run at Emirates Stadium. He joined Arsenal from Feyenoord in a £2.75 million deal in May 2004 and scored 132 goals for the Gunners, winning the FA Cup when beating United in the final in 2005. He was made Arsenal captain last summer following the sale of Cesc Fabregas to Barce ...
New Arsenal captain Vermaelen urges Arsenal to move on and forget about Van Persie! Thomas Vermaelen maintains Arsenal must put the departure of Robin Van Persie behind them and focus on mounting a sustained assault on the Barclays Premier League. The former Gunners skipper is on his way to Manchester United to finalise the formalities of a £24million switch to Old Trafford, and Belgian defender Vermaelen insists everyone must put the disappointment of losing Van Persie to one side as they prepare for Saturday’s kick-off against Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium. The defender, who is now likely to inherit the captain’s armband from the Dutch striker, told Sky Sports News: “He was fantastic for us in the last year, scored lots of goals and I am disappointed he is going, but we have to focus on the next season with Arsenal.”

Szczesny career review: First league match against Man United at Old Trafford, first European match against FC Barcelona at Emirates Stadium
What a happy and excitement weekend especially the Barclays Premier League Matches and Results that shown. But we only focused to the Sunday's Matches and its the Top Flight for 20th Champion, Leaders Manutd welcome the one from the four team battle for relegation zone, QPR to Old Trafford while the looking to stay for 3rd place spot, Arsenal entertaining at Emirates Stadium against the title contender, Man City. the results yesterday shown United with 2-0 won which goals from each Rooney (pen) and long range shot, Paul Scholes had brought United to clinch the BPL Trophy while Arsenal bounce back from their last week defeat at QPR with stunning well long range strike, Arteta as The Gunners beat Man City 1-0 to regain their third place. This had change in Table where The Red Devils goes 8 points clear at top over second place and defeated, Man City. Arsenal on third and Tottenham were in forth. So, well done to Manutd and also especially for Arsenal.
Time is ticking on the Premier League season. With just seven games to go the amateur experts (which is pretty much all of us) are now regularly poring over the run-in prising out points to add to their team's tally. Confidence is based on the indefinable and the undecidable. "If" has suddenly become a tradable commodity. The perception has been that Tottenham hold a slight but significant advantage over Arsenal in the race for third place because, to coin a phrase, "their run-in is easier". That balance could change this weekend as Arsenal entertain Manchester City in game crucial to the composition of the top four. They kick off at Emirates Stadium shortly after Manchester United complete their fixture against QPR at Old Trafford. By then, Tottenham's Saturday lunchtime trip to Sunderland will be ancient history. The two combatants at Emirates Stadium know their chief rivals - geographically and mathematically - could well have stolen a significant advantage before kick off and, by the end of the game, ...
