Gunners on fire!

Hull 1-4 Arsenal

Arsenal produced quite possibly their best performance of the season so far as they defeated 10 man Hull City with ease.
The Gunners attacking play was at its free flowing best as utilising Alexis Sanchez as the lone striker finally paid off.

Lucky Gunners steal point

PSG 1-1 Arsenal

In keeping with the start to their season so far, Arsenal yet again produced a lacklustre display but once again got away with it, this time against PSG in the opening game of their Champions League campaign.
In each of the last two seasons the Gunners had suffered opening game defeats and going up against the most difficult side in the group, away from home, it would have been reasonable to presume that Arsene Wenger would elect for a more pragmatic approach than his usual attacking philosophy.

Last gasp Gunners

Arsenal 2-1 Southampton

Arsenal secured a vital three points on Saturday thanks to a last minute penalty from Santi Cazorla which should not be used in any way shape or form to disguise an otherwise average performance.
Arsene Wenger decided to deviate from his normal approach to introducing new signings to the Premier League, by starting both his new additions, Mustafi and Peres. Unfortunately both struggled to come to terms with the pace and ferocity of the Premier League and as a result produced fairly average performances in keeping with that of the whole team.

Gunners too hot for Watford

Watford 1-3 Arsenal

Arsenal secured their first win of the Premier League season on Saturday with a fine performance against Watford, racing into a comfortable 3-0 lead before half time.

The Gunners have been far from their best so far this campaign, struggling for fluidity in attack in particular. However against Watford, helped by scoring an early goal, Arsenal produced a fine display of passing and movement to at times rip their opponents apart.

Gunners struggles continue

Leicester 0-0 Arsenal

Arsenal followed their loss against Liverpool on the opening day of the Premier League season with another poor display as they drew 0-0 against Leicester on Saturday evening.
Once again Wenger’s failure to recruit a centre forward during the summer transfer window came back to haunt him as the continued experiment in deploying Alexis Sanchez up front failed once again.

Lack of spending costs Gunners again!

Arsenal 3-4 Liverpool


Given the total lack of investment in the squad during the summer transfer window, it was no real surprise to see Arsenal completely taken apart on the opening day of the season, by a Liverpool side that were far below their best for large parts of the game.
