Man United perform perfect smash and grab at Arsenal

Arsenal fans were once again left to bemoan their lack of luck this season as a calamitous own goal from Kieran Gibbs resulted in the Gunners going down 2-1 at home to Manchester United. Back to back defeats for Arsenal means that they now drop down the table to 7th place, a massive 15 points shy of league leaders and local rivals Chelsea, while that rare away win for United saw them climb into the top 4, moving two crucial points clear of Arsenal.

Arsenal dominated the first half and should have opened the scoring through Jack Wilshere, who had the best chance of the early exchanges when he was played through on goal by England teammate Danny Welbeck, but hit a tame effort straight at David de Gea.


Arsenal handed defensive boost

Following Olivier Giroud’s return to training, Arsenal have been handed yet another injury boost as Mathieu Debuchy has revealed that he could be back on the pitch as early as next month.

In excerpts of an interview carried in the Mirror, Debuchy said, “My injury is now better. I work hard every day with the physio and I want to be back on the pitch in December. I’m looking forward to it.”


Wenger lays down the law at Arsenal

Despite Lukas Podolski’s very obvious consternations at Arsenal, an adamant Arsene Wenger has dismissed any talks of a transfer for the German forward this winter.

Following Germany’s win against Gibraltar, Podolski had made plain his dismay at having to repeatedly warm the bench and in excerpts of an interview carried in the Goal, Wenger replied, “He [Podolski] plays a position where there is a big competition. He came very late from his holidays [in the summer]. He started after his team-mates and was not good physically. It’s not established at all that he will leave at Christmas. It was me who sets the price and it [Podolski’s reported valuation] doesn’t correspond at all to his price. He is not for sale and there is no offer. Today's newspapers have an advantage. They know more than us. But the story is completely fabricated.”

Radamel Falcao’s persistent injury woes has already ruined his World Cup dreams and is now proving to be the biggest obstacle in his fledging Manchester United career.  The Telegraph reports that Falcao’s latest injury isn’t just a one off case, but rather a culmination of a series of unfortunate incidents.


German World Cup winner getting frustrated at Arsenal

Beleaguered Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski has issued his strongest statement yet to clearly indicate that he wants out of the club this very winter.

In excerpts of an interview carried in the London Evening Standard, Podolski said, “I've spent the last four months making brief appearances, I've had to wrap myself up warm in my winter coat with my hat and scarf on to watch the others playing. I would rather show Arsenal what I am capable if, but this chance to show what I can do is not being given to me. I want to play football for many years to come so am I meant just to say everything's fine and sit my contract out?"

Chelsea have raced ahead of local rivals Arsenal, Man United and Liverpool in the battle to sign Marco Reus, with Jose Mourinho even prepared to part ways with one World Cup winning superstar to bring home another, according to reports in the Express.

Reus has been the subject of intense speculation since the last summer transfer window and his refusal to sign a new contract at Borussia Dortmund has only served to embolden his pursuers. Mourinho is learnt to be an ardent admirer of the classy forward and ‘The Special One’ might even go as far as to sacrifice Andre Schurrle in a swap deal if that guarantees him an opportunity to field Reus.


Arsenal eye former Chelsea target

Arsenal may have successfully enamoured unsettled Italian striker Mattia Destro, as the sharpshooter himself has welcomed rumours linking him with a move to North London.

In excerpts of an interview carried in the London Evening Standard, Destro said, “Arsenal for me? The rumours are good, I’m happy for them. This is the proof that I’m doing my work well.”
