Is Man United game at just the right time for Arsenal?

It is a good time for Arsenal to play Man Utd by Rabiul

It is nice to see Arsenal back on Top of the League where we belong. But make no mistake, there is still a long way to go and the fixture list is very tough for rest of February and March. So Arsenal needs to be on top of their game to continue to stay on top. However, one of the upcoming tough matches is against Man Utd and I seriously believe that this will be a good time for Arsenal to play against them.

Can Arsenal say goodbye to challenge from Spurs and United?

As Arsenal got straight back into the groove with a win against Southampton at the weekend, the Premier League title race is really starting to take shape. And it is looking good for the Gunners, not just because of our own form, but because of the poor performances of two of our biggest rivals, Manchester United and Tottenham.

Tottenham were not just beaten by Manchester City, they were subjected to the kind of beating that could well damage their team morale and and put a giant spanner in the works of their season. It is extra special for Arsenal fans of course, because of the local rivalry, but in practical terms it should mean that we have one less team to worry about.

Rooney rates Ozil but it’s Arsenal’s BFG he needs to worry about

Because of the hamstring injury suffered by Lukas Podolski earlier in the season, Arsenal have just two German internationals in contention to play the friendly against England at Wembley tomorrow night. The Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has been praising one of them, Mesut Ozil, ahead of the game, but he is worried about the wrong man.

The England international told the Daily Mirror
, “He’s a clever player, he doesn’t stick to one position.

“He moves along the line and behind opposition midfield and can score and assist goals so he is a fantastic players and a test for us to deal with.”

Arsenal star Ozil ready to make Moyes and United suffer

It is no exaggeration to say that Arsenal’s last minute transfer of Mesut Ozil was the big story of the Premier League summer. And the German has already shown that he was well worth breaking the Gunners long standing transfer record for. So you would think that anyone who had passed on the opportunity to sign the player Jose Mourinho referred to as the best number 10 in the world, would keep quiet about it.

Manchester United vs. Arsenal Preview, Team News and Prediction by AT

On the back of a historic win for Arsenal over Borrusia Dortmund in the Champions League, the Gunners travel to the North-West to face the reigning Premier League champions Manchester United in a clash that will surely be the pick of the action over the weekend. With a five point lead at the top of the League table, Arsene Wenger’s side are soaring high at the moment and will be keen to make a ‘perfect week’ out of what the critics dubbed to be the ultimate test of the club’s title credentials.

If confidence is King, Arsenal should rule the World

There is no stopping Arsenal right now by Anurag Thompson

Well, it certainly seems as though confidence is just oozing from the Arsenal players at the moment. After Aaron Ramsey contradicted the comments made by Wayne Rooney in regards to Arsenal’s title challenge, Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky has also stepped up and spoken highly of Arsenal’s title credentials this season.

Rosicky, who put in another excellent performance against his former club, highlighted the grit and determination displayed by Arsene Wenger’s side in the historic win at Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League and claimed that resilient performances such as the one at the Westfalenstadion could carry Arsenal to the title come the end of the season.

Rooney mind game attempt on Arsenal is laughable!

I suppose you can’t blame Wayne Rooney for trying, but his attempt to take up the reins from his old boss was nor great. Ahead of Arsenal’s visit to face Manchester United at Old Trafford tomorrow, the England international dismissed the Gunners title challenge, despite us being five points clear at the top of the Premier League and eight points clear of his struggling team.

Rooney’s claims that Arsenal always fade towards the end of a season were soon answered by Aaron Ramsey, but you just have to look at the stats from recent years to see that the exact opposite is true and it has been slow starts that have hurt us. So nice try, Wayne, but you maybe should have checked the facts first.

Ramsey blasts Rooney for doubting Arsenal title chances

The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has today responded to the comments made by Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, who expressed doubts as to whether Arsenal would last the length of the title race and claimed that Arsene Wenger’s side are unlikely to remain in a commanding position in the table at the end of March.

Ramsey, whose header gave Arsenal a historic victory over Borussia Dortmund in Germany, was quick to rubbish the remarks made by the England international. The Welshman pointed out, with good reason, that it’s the latter half of the season that gets the best out of the Arsenal side and maintained that the Gunners’ would still be firing on all cylinders come the business end of the season.

Arsenal Debate – Arteta or Flamini or Both?

Arsene Wenger has not got too many decisions to make when selecting his Arsenal team to start this weekend’s big Premier League game against Manchester United. Bendtner or Giroud? No prizes for guessing that one, Gooners. It’s not so much that Arsenal are one dimensional or have no variety, it’s just that the players who can provide it have not been available.

Wenger puts pressure on RVP and United ahead of Arsenal clash

With Arsenal flying high at the top of the Premier League, as well as storming back into control of the hardest group in the Champions League, the visit to Old Trafford this Sunday to face Manchester United was always going to be a major talking point in the media.

There have been lots of incidents between the clubs in the Arsene Wenger, such as Pizza-gate and Keown doing a Dracula impression on Van Nistelrooy, but the big issue since last summer has been the van Persie transfer. The Dutchman went from Arsenal hero to being more hated than Nasri and Cole, and his talk of the little boy inside just made it worse.

United players talk Big but look small ahead of Arsenal visit

When Arsenal travel to Old Trafford on Sunday to take on Manchester United, it will be with more confidence and real belief that they will come away with all three points than most of the current players can remember. It is true that the Gunners have had some miserable times there in the recent past, but that will not affect the Gunners team, because the season so far, and especially the last two games, have instilled a sense that Arsenal can beat anyone.

Should Arsenal rescue Hernandez from United limbo?

One former Arsenal striker, Carlos Vela, who eventually moved on because of a lack of playing opportunities, has been talking about his international team mate being in a similar situation at Manchester United. Javier Hernandez seems to be seriously considering his future at Old Trafford and I think he could make a great addition to the Arsenal squad if he is available.

An ESPN report reveals that the Mexican striker re-tweeted an article quoting Vela. The thrust of the story was that Hernandez will have to think about leaving United unless he starts to be used more by David Moyes. He later removed his tweet, but it is clear that it is on his mind.
