- Sat, 27 Nov 2021 14:48:29 +0000: Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle: Premier League – as it happened - Arsenal | The Guardian
Bukayo Saka was the star turn as Arsenal saw off bottom-placed Newcastle
3 min: It’s super-cold at the Emirates, though the rain is clearing up. “Seeing how Tavarez deals with Saint-Maximin barrelling through will be instructive, if not always pretty,” suggests Charles Antaki. “Generous of Arteta to select him after his performance last week, so long as we don’t decode ‘if he’d tried, play him again’ as meaning ‘Tierney’s not quite fit enough, sadly’.”
1 min: Joelinton barges his way down the left and seriously troubles White, nearly breaking into the box along the byline. White eventually wins the battle, but only just. Goal kick, but that’s a statement of intent from the goal-shy Newcastle striker.Continue reading...
- Sat, 27 Nov 2021 14:41:05 +0000: Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli see off winless Newcastle - Arsenal | The Guardian
Should this fixture be repeated next season, Newcastle may need some cajolement into making the journey. They have lost 11 straight games at the Emirates and on the basis of past performances and current form most elements of their latest reverse could confidently be predicted at the outset.
Arsenal were not especially convincing but ultimately proved too strong, scoring twice in the third quarter of the game, and once Bukayo Saka had put them ahead any doubts about the outcome were banished. Arsenal continue to tick off the lesser assignments and maintain designs on the top four, but the scale of Eddie Howe’s task is starkly laid out.Continue reading...
- Fri, 26 Nov 2021 22:30:40 +0000: Mikel Arteta has faith Nicolas Pepé can rediscover form at Arsenal - Arsenal | The Guardian
- £72m Ivorian played five minutes of past four top-flight fixtures
- Manager says next few seasons will show if he is value for money
Mikel Arteta has admitted Arsenal are yet to see whether Nicolas Pépé will deliver on his £72m transfer fee but believes the out-of-favour forward can come good over the rest of his contract.
Hopes were high that Pépé would make a quick start this season after he finished 2020-21 strongly, scoring five times in the club’s final three games, but he has been unable to replicate that form. The Ivorian has played only five minutes of Arsenal’s past four top-flight fixtures, starting one of their past seven, and is yet to break his duck in the league. It means the overall picture since his arrival from Lille in August 2019 is one of frustrating inconsistency; Arteta said time would tell when it comes to assessing Pépé’s worth and that the team’s overall performance would be a factor.Continue reading...
- Fri, 26 Nov 2021 17:31:15 +0000: Arsenal v Newcastle: match preview - Arsenal | The Guardian
Eddie Howe makes a belated first appearance in Newcastle’s technical area and will hope for an improvement on the Magpies’ usual offerings at the Emirates. They have avoided defeat at Arsenal’s home only twice across 16 visits and have lost the last 10; the omens stack up even less promisingly given the improved form Mikel Arteta’s side have shown, notwithstanding last weekend’s humbling by Liverpool. Arteta hopes a post-match inquest among his players at Anfield will set them back on course but must be wary of a sting from Joe Willock, whose sale to Newcastle he sanctioned in the summer.

- Fri, 26 Nov 2021 17:04:06 +0000: Scotland and Wales could meet in World Cup 2022 play-off final: football countdown – as it happened - Arsenal | The Guardian
The 2022 World Cup play-off draw threw up a potential showdown between Wales and Scotland.
Arsenal v Newcastle: Eddie Howe has been cleared to travel to the Emirates with Newcastle tomorrow after a spell in quarantine but his assistant coach Jason Tindall was in charge of talking to the media this morning ahead of the squad’s trip to the Big Smoke.
“In terms of training, the lads have worked extremely hard, and there has been a constant dialogue with the manager,” he told reporters. “You want your leader and manager here with you, so we’ve missed him as staff and I’m sure the players have missed him on the grass and on the sidelines. We are certainly looking forward to having him back and I’m sure the fans will want him on the touchline.”Continue reading...

BBC Sport looks back at the Premier League "comeback to end all comebacks", when Newcastle recovered from being four goals down inside 30 minutes to draw 4-4 with Arsenal in 2011.
The summer transfer action is beginning to come hard and fast for Arsenal as they now have begun to receive many offers for the want away Dutch striker Robin Van Persie who is out of contract with the gunner at the end of next season. The clubs star player has made it clear he will not be signing a new contract with the gunners and this has prompted all of Europe’s top clubs to begin a bidding war for the phenomenal striker.
Another player who could be set to leave the Emirates stadium is Carlos Vela who is now in the middle of discussions for a transfer to the Spanish side Real Sociedad who are thought to be lining up a £5.000.000 deal for the Mexican international. Vela has been on the sidelines for some time now and it is clear that his future lies elsewhere and away from London.
The capture of Lucas Podolski from Cologne a few weeks back was meant to signal the start of a new era at Arsenal as the club have been trophy less for the past five years. The German international was seen as the perfect partner for Robin Van Persie but with the Dutch striker certainly on his way out of the Emirates it is now more than likely that Podolski will be leading the line along with another new signing up from in the form of up and coming superstar Olivier Giroud.
Another player who could be leaving the London club this summer is Marouane Chamakh who has found himself out of the picture at Arsenal for the past twelve month and has only started a handful of games during this time. The Morroccan international is wanted by Fiorentina and Dutch champions Ajax and the striker is keen on a move to either of these sides in search of first team football.
Arsenal are also said to be in for the highly thought of Egyptian defender Islam Ramadan who plays for his homeland club Haras El Hodood with the twenty one year old thought to be an integral part of Wengers new defensive plans. Ramadan has also attracted a huge amount of interest from some of Europe’s leading clubs including Lyon, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon.
