Ozil and Sanchez on AGM agenda


Arsenal must remain focused

 By Tom Adams

Arsenal without Santi Cazorla is a bad situation given his importance

Neither Sunderland or Arsenal could break the deadlock in last season's meeting.
If Santi Cazorla misses a significant number of games through injury, Arsenal's fine form could well end.

Of all the encouraging features of Arsenal's season to date, which sees them joint top of the Premier League heading into Saturday's game against Sunderland, perhaps the most impressive has been the generous scattering of goals around Arsene Wenger's team. Alexis Sanchez is taking to his new central role with six goals in all competitions. Meanwhile, with a brace in the midweek 2-0 League Cup win against Reading, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain already has five, his highest-ever season tally. With eight...

Middlesbrough look to snap goal drought at home vs. Bournemouth

Adama Traore excelled at Arsenal and has given defensive minded Middlesbrough a bit of life the last few times out.

Middlesbrough must look to play with positivity and verve to build on last weekend's hard-working performance that won them a valuable point in a 0-0 draw at Arsenal.  

Winger Adama Traore was one of the standout men from last weekend, clocking up pacey runs at almost 35km/h. Fans had seen glimpses of the former Barcelona man's speedy skills when he livened up the 2-1 defeat to Tottenham earlier in the season. Ever since, boss Aitor Karanka has been called upon to give Traore a place in his...

Arsenal stars Giroud, Sanchez, Ramsey sport retro shirts of past title-winners

Arsenal look to be in a strong position to challenge for honours this season -- the club are unbeaten in 13 games in all competitions and sit level on points with Premier League leaders Manchester City.

And in an attempt to improve their chances of success, Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey are looking for inspiration from the Gunners' illustrious history by modelling retro shirts associated with trophy wins from days gone by.

Giroud sports the classic red strip worn by the 1970-71...

EFL Cup shows Arsenal's depth could give them edge in Premier League

Former Arsenal man Stewart Robson says Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has more to offer in the first XI than Theo Walcott.

Arsene Wenger must have allowed himself a slight smile when he looked at the lineups for the Manchester and London derbies in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.

With Wenger having rested nearly all of his regular starters for the 2-0 win over Reading on Tuesday, it was clear some of his biggest Premier League rivals couldn't afford the same luxury.

Jose Mourinho fielded a full-strength Manchester United side against crosstown rival City, with counterpart Pep Guardiola also including a handful of first-choice...

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain playing for his Arsenal future after show of faith

Former Arsenal man Stewart Robson says Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has more to offer in the first XI than Theo Walcott.

If there was a moment this summer when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain received a show of faith from Arsene Wenger, it was probably when the Arsenal manager allowed Joel Campbell to leave the club on loan.

During a disappointing 2015-16 campaign, the Costa Rican forward unquestionably outperformed his England international colleague. Campbell's four goals and five assists across competitions were hardly record-breaking numbers, but in comparison to Oxlade-Chamberlain's two strikes and one assist, it's clear...

Oxlade-Chamberlain's brace boosts Arsenal to win as Holding holds tough

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored a brace in Arsenal's EFL Cup victory over Reading on Tuesday.

Arsenal made their way to the EFL Cup quarterfinals with a routine 2-0 win over Reading. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the star man, grabbing both goals for the Gunners, but there were plenty of positives for Arsene Wenger on Tuesday at the Emirates Stadium.


Oxlade-Chamberlain was certainly impressive. He now has five goals in all competitions, compared to just two in the entirety of 2015-16. Considering he has made just seven starts, it's a solid tally.

Speaking after the game, Wenger was...
