- Tue, 12 Nov 2019 17:29:23 +0000: Lukasz Fabianski was once ridiculed but West Ham look lost without him - Arsenal | The Guardian
The keeper has won player of the season awards for two years running and looks even more important now he’s injured
It’s been a difficult period for West Ham of late. Having made some eye-catching moves in the summer transfer window and picked up 11 points in their first six games, they looked well places to challenge for a European place. But four defeats in their last five games have left the club two places above the relegation zone.
It has gone wrong very quickly. At the end of September they were fifth in the table, having kept three straight clean sheets – a record that remains unbeaten 12 games into the season. West Ham were on a roll. Issa Diop and Angelo Ogbonna were playing admirably at the back and new signings Sébastien Haller and Pablo Fornals had added more talent to an already exciting attack. However, the team’s real position of strength was obvious: their goalkeeper. Lukasz Fabianski was brilliant for West Ham last season and had started this campaign just as strongly.Continue reading...

• Arsenal urge fans to get behind manager and struggling team
• Granit Xhaka ready to play again after captaincy furore
Arsenal have given Unai Emery a public vote of confidence, backing him to turn their fortunes around but adding a clear caveat that the team’s form must improve.
Emery’s position has come under scrutiny after a turbulent start to the season that has brought a run of one win in six Premier League games. They are eight points behind fourth-placed Manchester City and nine short of Leicester, who beat them 2-0 on Saturday and sit in second place.Continue reading...
- Mon, 11 Nov 2019 08:30:04 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Arsenal | The Guardian
Emery’s Arsenal have lost their direction and Spurs’ problems start at full-back but Burnley’s Dwight McNeil is on song
Riyad Mahrez impressed only in spells during his first season at Manchester City but, with Leroy Sané felled by a cruciate injury in August’s Community Shield victory, the onus was on the £60m man to step up. An imperious performance at West Ham on the opening day of the season suggested he would do exactly that, yet he has started only four league games since – two of those being defeats – and with his side desperate for goals in a critical game at Anfield he was not called on at all. Mahrez remains a magical player on his day but the suspicion remains that he is a player who reflects his team’s performance rather than dictates it. City broke the bank to sign Mahrez from Leicester. With their defence a shambles, it looks in hindsight like a woeful misjudgment. Alex HessContinue reading...

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.
