Alexis Sanchez against Barcelona

It’s a big game for…

Alexis Sanchez: The Chilean has been outstanding for Arsenal since leaving the Camp Nou in July 2014, scoring 35 goals for the Gunners, and it is the first time he will face his former club, Barcelona. The 27-year-old has netted three times in the Champions League this season, despite only recently returning from a hamstring injury he suffered in November.

Best stat…

4: Barcelona have won four of their seven meetings with Arsenal, which have all come in the Champions League. The Catalans have only lost once to the Gunners – a 2-1 defeat when they last met at the Emirates in 2011.

Remember when…

Lionel Messi scored four goals against Arsenal in the 2009/10 Champions League campaign, as Barcelona progressed to the semi-finals.

Player to watch…

Luis Suarez: The former Liverpool striker returns to England for the second time since joining Barcelona on a rich run of form – having scored 15 goals in nine games in all competitions. With five goals in the Champions League to date, the Uruguayan has been the most prolific of his Barcelona team-mates. Suarez knows Arsenal well, from his time with Liverpool, and will look to capitalise on that in the first leg.

Arsene Wenger believes former Arsenal trainee Benik Afobe strengthens Bournemouth’s chances of avoiding relegation in their debut Premier League season.

Arsenal travel to the south coast on Sunday to take on Eddie Howe’s side, who already boast victories over Manchester United and Chelsea this term and currently sit 15th in the leage, seven points clear of the drop zone.

Their cause has been bolstered by the acquisition of Afobe from Wolves during the January transfer window, with the 22-year-old striker repaying Howe’s faith with three goals in his four top-flight appearances for Bournemouth.

England Under-21 striker Afobe led something of a nomadic existence during his time on Arsenal’s books, moving on loan to six different clubs before Wolves completed a permanent transfer for him last January.

Speaking ahead of the game on Friday, Wenger explained: “He was very young, he had big competition in front of him with Robin van Persie and players like that, so I gave him authorisation to go somewhere and play, which he did.

“You educate people to influence their lives and give them success. When they do not manage to play for us, if they do it somewhere else we are of course very happy for them.

“Benik has done extremely well, even beyond the expectations of many people and that’s great, that’s down to him and congratulations to him.

“I think the best way to stop him being dangerous is for us to have the ball and dominate the game and being aware that Benik is quick, strong and has good movement in the box.

“We are used to facing these kind of strikers in the Premier League because in every single club there are top-quality strikers.

“That’s the same with Bournemouth. I’ve always said that they will avoid relegation since the start of the season when I saw them play. They have enough substance in their game to stay up.”

In contrast to Afobe, Arsenal have been shot-shy recently – failing to score in the last three of four winless Premier League matches to slip five points behind leaders Leicester City.

The uncertainty at the top of the table is matched at the wrong end, and Bournemouth boss Howe believes the traditional 40-point target to ensure safety may prove deceptive this season.

“Every weekend is pivotal,” Howe said. “Sunday represents a really good game for our football club, we’re competitive and try to win.

“We’re conscious of people setting 40 points but we haven’t set any targets. We’re working towards goals, but it’s very dangerous to set 40 points as it could be more this year.”

Howe will make a late call on winger Junior Stanislas (knee), while Arsenal are without Thomas Rosicky.

The veteran midfielder might have played his last game for the club, with a thigh injury set to keep him sidelined for three months and his contract expiring in June.

Danny Welbeck returned to action for Arsenal’s Under-21 side on Friday but will not be risked at the Vitality Stadium, where Bournemouth hope to avenge a 2-0 December defeat at Emirates Stadium.
Key Opta stats:
– Arsenal have won just one of their past six Premier League away games (W1 D3 L2).
– Arsene Wenger’s team have not gone five league matches without a win since August 2011.
– Bournemouth have dropped more points from winning positions than any other team in the top flight (14).
– Eddie Howe’s men have scored a season-high tally (eight) and proportion (28 per cent) of their goals in the opening 15 minutes of games.
– If Arsenal fail to score, they will equal their longest run in Premier League history without a goal – four matches, established in February 2009.

Arsenal v Burlney

Remember This ?

There’s something comforting about a good, old-fashioned, 3pm FA Cup tie, isn’t there? It’s quintessentially English, I find, with bad weather normally thrown in to the mix too. We’ve certainly ticked all of today’s boxes, as well as a a game against a lower league opposition in Burnley, who will probably be a Premier League opposition next season.

I love it. There’ll be a bit of rain, a bit of wind and a bit of rotation from Le Boss today, which makes sense given the fact we’ve got some tricky league games coming up on Wednesday and then Sunday. It’s Burnley we’ll host and like Blackburn three seasons ago, they pose a potential banana-skin-shaped threat unless we give them enough respect in the team selection. There’s also the traditional pantomime villains that we might see, in the shape of Joey Barton and Paul Robinson, the former Spud ‘keeper. If he plays we’ll get to resurrect an old favourite that I thought had long since disappeared from the Emirates, because apparently “event Tottenham think you’re sh*t”. Barton will be booed because, well, he’s Joey Barton. It all adds to the ‘magic’ of the FA Cup, you know.

To be fair to Arsene, I think he will give our opponents respect today, because I think we’ll see a mixture of squad and first team players. This would be a game in which you’d expect Ospina to play, something Arsene confirmed in his pre-match press conference, but I think he’ll also rotate in Chambers and Gibbs too. Gabriel comes in for Mertesacker and because Debuchy is on his way out, you’d expect to see Koscienly in defence with Calum in at right back.

Midfield will most likely have Elneny get a start, which seems even more the case with Arsene talking up his style of play, so the next question is who will probably play in front of him. Personally I’d be tempted to give someone like Iwobi the nod in the number 10 role, whilst the idea of Rosicky starting really appeals. He has played some reserve football and perhaps is not fit enough, which might then see Ramsey retain his place, but the Little Mozart must surely be given some game time at some stage. He’s right on cue for his late season impact and games like these are always ones in which he is useful. Coquelin too will probably see some minutes I would have thought.

The front three will have Walcott up top and Alexis out wide, I’m sure of it. Giroud didn’t get much game time after being subbed off on Sunday after 20 minutes, so he will be fresh, but we need him for both Southampton at home and Bournemouth away, so i’d ask Theo to try and prove he can at least have a go at wrestling that starting position off of the Frenchman, by having a good game this afternoon.

On the right Arsene has a plethora off options. If Giroud does start he could play one of Walcott, The Ox, Iwobi (if he’s not in at number ten)  or Campbell, but I think Campbell will play on Wednesday so he might be given some time off. Or at least a place on the bench. He’s an all-action running winger and we don’t want him running out of puff by the time the Bournemouth game comes around.

Burnley’s gravelmaster Sean Dyche has already said he’ll rotate with the Championship games in mind, so whilst that might give us a perceived advantage, I’d always be wary of Clarets bearing gifts. They will press us quite hard and try to remain compact, but if there’s an early Arsenal goal, then I’d expect us to be able to put this game to bed with time to spare. If Burnley score first, it will be about breaking down a stubborn defence, so we need to make sure we’re not caught out cold. The excellent tactics column by Michael Cox on the official site gives an insight in to the way they’ll play, which does make you wonder whether Chambers will be risked at full back or whether Hector will play, with Calum moving alongside Gabriel to give Koscielny a rest. If Burnley are going to look to spread the ball wide, then that’s going to be a consideration Arsene will need to ponder on.

There’s no doubt we have the players to win this game, regardless of how much rotation there is, but the winning mindset needs to be re-established after a somewhat poor January. We are getting to the crunch time in the season and whilst the priority is obviously the league, the FA Cup is a competition that has seen us taste the sweet success of trophy victory, so we want to win it again.

If you’re going, you know what to do, if you’re not,then scream as loudly as possibly at your computer or TV. Up the Arsenal!

Keep the faith, Arsenal

Keep the faith, Arsenal !

It’s judgement week for Arsenal in the Champions League. With the Gunners’ hopes hanging by a thread, Arsene Wenger’s men need a two-goal victory at Olympiakos to seal a last 16 spot despite losing their opening two group games.

Here are 10 of the finest, including another English club who required a two-goal win over Olympiakos and ended up lifting the trophy…

Arsenal 2003/04

Despite becoming the ‘Invincibles’ in the Premier League, the Gunners were far from impenetrable in Europe that season, losing two of their first three group games – including a 3-0 hiding from Inter at Highbury. But after Ashley Cole snatched a crucial 88th-minute winner in their fourth game against Dynamo Kyiv, Arsenal went on to annihilate Inter 5-1 at the San Siro in arguably their most formidable European display, led by the brilliance of two-goal Thierry Henry. Arsene Wenger’s men managed to hold their nerve and clinched a 2-0 home win over Lokomotiv Moscow to progress on 10 points as group winners, demonstrating the steely character that proved the bedrock of that great Gunners side.

Everyone has admitted that Arsenal is going through a bad spell in the League. In their last three games, Arsenal has dropped points against Tottenham, West Brom and Norwich amassing two points from a possible nine. Sunderland on the other hand, have picked up some good form since Sam Allardyce took over and they have won three of their last five games.

Arsenal Team News

Arsenal is heavily plagued with injuries and the club are without some key players but they would have to soldier on without them. Losing Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla are big blows to the club but in Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, the Gunners have able replacements.

Wenger has shared his thoughts on the present situation at the club,

“I believe first of all it’s always a disappointment to lose the players at an important moment of the season. But on the other hand, it’s a great challenge to take for the team and a great opportunity to show that we are ready for a fight and we can deal with it. We prepared ourselves to go through periods like that, and I’m convinced the players are ready.”

Laurent Koscielny and Theo Walcott will face fitness tests and they will probably play from the bench.
