Arsenal face the first game in a tough run on Sunday, no disrespect to Hull City, with a Premier League game at the Emirates against 5th placed Everton. Arsene Wenger will not want to take any chances, but the way that players like Monreal and Bendtner slotted seamlessly into the side in the last game should give the manager confidence that rotating is not risking the game.
Arsenal are about to lose their place at the top of the table, but don’t worry Gooners, I am not talking about the premier League or Champions League group tables. It is the unwanted position as the club with the most crocked players on the sidelines that Arsenal are losing.
Poor old Abou Diaby will soon be on his own in the treatment room, as the Mirror has revealed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the latest Gunner to give the club a boost. The young England international is still not expected to feature on the pitch until the new year, but he has passed a crucial phase of his recovery from ligameny damage and is ready to start running in training.
How Many New Players Arsenal Need to Sign? by Rabiul
Recently there has been lot of speculation regarding Arsenal and the signing of players in the January transfer window. It has been suggested that the Gunners are in the market for a striker, keeper, wingers, centre back, right back and pretty much any position you can think of. Here I try to analyze actually how many players do Arsenal really need to sign.
The rule of thumb is that a great side will have 2 great players in every position. Since Arsenal is currently playing a 4-2-3-1 style, let me go step by step.

I am sure that most Arsenal fans will agree with me when I say that it would be better if Arsene Wenger does not need to look for another right back at the end of this season. Bacary Sagna has put all the problems of form and injury behind him to remine everyone why his manager once claimed he was the best right back in the Premier League.
Why Sagna and Rosicky deserve new contracts! by Ash
Every single year there is usually some controversy surrounding Arsenal and the trouble the club usually endures with contracts. In previous years there have been disputes from both Van Persie and Samir Nasri, whilst Ashley Cole is also a victim from the past. But so far in the past year at least Arsenal have had nothing but positive news regarding contract news.
Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal team used to have a real hold over Chelsea, but that changed significantly when Jose Mourinho first arrived at Stamford Bridge. The multi million pound signings of Roman Abramovich may have had a little to do with it as well, especially as Wenger was forced to scrimp and save at the same time.
However, there is still a feeling that Mourinho has the indian sign of the Arsenal boss, as we saw again in the Capital One cup defeat this season. So the fact that Fabian Schar has performed well for his current side Basel in both games as they did the double over Chelsea in the Champions League will not have harmed his chances of a move to the Emirates in January.
Juan Cuadrado has been linked with a possible move to Arsenal increasingly frequently this season, and the talented and versatile Colombian international has begun to attract interest from a number of top clubs with his excellent performances this season.
In fact, it is now being reported on Talksport, that sources from Serie A have some bad news for the Gunners. One of the very biggest clubs in Europe, and the current Champions League holders, Bayern Munich, have apparently edged ahead of Arsenal in the race to sign the 25-year old.
It has been confirmed that the highly-rated Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has joined Championship side Watford on a loan deal valid up to January next year with an option to extend. The young Spaniard has been in great form for Arsenal’s reserves this season and Watford boss Gianfranco Zola has been impressed enough to give him a chance at first team football over at Vicarage Road.
The youngster, who was brought in from Barcelona’s renowned La Masia academy in 2011, has developed rapidly under Arenal’s youth system and it is understood that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is hopeful that a loan move will further fast track his development as a player and bring him back to the Emirates as a possible contender for a first-team spot.
Over the past few weeks, there have been plenty of reports from the English media in regards to the future of the Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna. The Frenchman has so far refused to sign a new deal at the Emirates and while Arsene Wenger still seems pretty optimistic about the situation, it is not hard to see that talks are not going ahead as planned by the club.
Arsenal are very close to coming through this current international break unscathed. With just tonight’s games to get through, it looks like the Gunners should be in really good shape for the visit of Southammpton to the Emirates on Saturday.
The illness bug which arguably ruined our chances of a famous victory over Manchester United at OLd Trafford has actually worked in our favour for the international players. Aaron Ramsey and Tomas Rosicky sat out the Wales and Czech Republic games, and they do not play tonight.
