Gunners come through tough challenge

Burnley 0-1 Arsenal

Aaron Ramsey Arsenal

Arsenal showed a different side to their game on Saturday evening in order to defeat a stubborn, physical and well organised Burnley side.

A week previously, the Gunners had torn Liverpool apart with quick combinations, fast, flowing football of the highest calibre and exceptional skill. Against Burnley however, Arsenal were simply not allowed to get into any rhythm

Jekyll and Hyde Gunners

Olivier Giroud

Just not enough!

Monaco 0-2 Arsenal

Olivier Giroud
Normally a 2-0 away win in the Champions League, against a side that has a European home record second only to Real Madrid, would be celebrated with great joy. Unfortunately, when such a result comes after a 3-1 home defeat in the first leg, it stands for nothing.

For the fifth year in succession, Arsenal’s players were made to rue their mistakes in the first leg,

Magnificent Giroud

Arsenal 3-0 West Ham

Olivier Giroud

Arsenal followed up their excellent win at Old Trafford in the FA Cup, with another solid performance at home to West Ham on Saturday.

The Gunners have responded extremely well to that soul destroying defeat to Monaco in the Champions League a few weeks ago and have really grown from strength to strength.

We're going to Wembley!!

Man United 1-2 Arsenal

Manchester Untied v Arsenal
Arsenal headed to Old Trafford on Monday night with several doubts surrounding the team. Having not beaten Manchester United away from home since 2006 and so far having failed to defeat the worst United side in a generation, there was a feeling that the Gunners were suffering from a mental block when facing the Red Devils.

The last meeting between the two sides at the Emirates in November proved to be an extremely frustrating game for Arsene Wenger’s men as they dominated proceedings but were ultimately undone by  two breakaway goals which saw United leave with all three points. It would have been easy for Arsenal to crumble under such negativity as they left the dressing room to fight for a place in the FA Cup semi-finals, but instead they showed great mental strength throughout the game.

Wenger set his team up in similar fashion to the last time his team visited Manchester, that time securing a win at Manchester City by sitting deep, soaking up the pressure and hitting their opponents on the break.
