Well Arsenal fans, we are into the last 10 Premier League games of the season. The Gunners had a fantastic first half of the campaign but have dropped off a bit in recent weeks. We are sitting in third place, four behind current leaders Chelsea and behind second placed Liverpool on goal difference. Man City are behind us but will leapfrog Arsenal if they win their games in hand.
So we are looking up obviously, having a strong finish and putting pressure on our rivals, but at the same time, we are just six points ahead of Tottenham who are our next opponents. Arsenal.com have compiled stats to show how the Gunners tend to do in the last 10 games and it is pretty encouraging. .......Read the full article here

Arsenal 0 v 2 Bayern Munich by allArsenal.com
The Gunners were understandably overrun in the possession stats, reduced to 10 men in contentious circumstances after 37 minutes, and unfortunately failing to score after an exciting start to the game.
Arsene Wenger made a shock decision to include youngster Yaya Sanogo, a former Ligue 2 free transfer who made a case for his inclusion with a promising display against Liverpool. The home side started strongly, piling on the pressure and were awarded a penalty after some fantastic work from Wilshere and Ozil. .......Read the full article here

Arsenal 2 v 1 Liverpool [FA Cup] Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com
The Gunners were perhaps fortunate to take the lead after two clear-cut chances for Liverpool in the opening quarter, however they controlled parts of the game and opted to invite Liverpool onto them, eventually coming out victors thanks to two well taken goals from the Ox and Podolski.
The German made it interesting for the Gunners when he conceded a needless penalty, but Arsenal held on despite the barrage of Liverpool attacks to qualify for the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. That’s at least one more game for the departing Fabianski who was our Man of the Match. .......Read the full article here
Hi Gooners. Arsenal never really looked threatening last night at all. Again, it took us most of the first half to get stuck in. As the commentator described, it was an edgy performance to say the least. Too many broken passes and mistakes. No penetration whatsoever. We lacked pace and a nose for goal. United were also abysmal, in fact worse than us and this is something we should have capitalized on, playing on at home and all. Yet Arsenal seemed almost too scared to try anything risky. Below is my assessment of players and ratings. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal 0 v 0 Man United Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com
Arsenal missed the chance to reclaim top spot last night after a draw at home to Manchester United. Both teams seeming a little hesitant at times, their fear of losing overpowering their desire to win.
The Gunners can be thankful that Van Persie didn’t have his clinical boots on, however Wojciech Szczesny rightfully earned the plaudits for some superb saves to deny the Dutchman.
Giroud was wasteful, while Cazorla attempted to get things going for the Gunners. Koscielny too also came close for the Gunners, but in the end they failed to find the cutting edge to finish off Moyes’ men. .......Read the full article here

Arsenal suffered their fourth defeat of the Premier league season at Anfield at the weekend and three of the four losses were away from home.

Liverpool 5 v 1 Arsenal Match Report Infographic by allarsenal.com
A 20 minutes to forget for the Gunners compounded in a gut-wrenching 5-1 romp by Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool side.
The Gunners passing was way off when it mattered, while the lack of enthusiasm was frustrating especially considering the strength of the side that played at Anfield.
Arsenal’s backline were all over the show – extremely uncharacteristic from one of the leagues best defences. Koscielny and Mertesacker’s unbeaten run comes to an end, a lack of communication resulting in some easy opportunities for the Reds. .......Read the full article here

Despite the fact that Arsenal fans have their own song for the big French striker and the fact that the football media is full of praise for him and think he is one of the key players that have helped the Gunners get to the top of the table and stay there this season, some people just have no time for him. .......Read the full article here
