Will Arsenal buy again?


Mathieu Flamini escapes red as Arsenal ease past Bournemouth

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says February is make-or-break for Arsenal in the title race.

After three league games without scoring, two goals in 88 first half seconds were enough to give Arsenal a much-needed 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Sunday.

With Arsene Wenger not yet willing to throw in Francis Coquelin from the start, he stuck with the pairing of Mathieu Flamini and Aaron Ramsey that has been far from convincing in recent weeks. Indeed, the Frenchman was lucky not to see red as early as the eighth minute, when a two-footed tackle on Dan Gosling resulted in just a yellow card from...

1. Victory gets Arsenal back on track

After four Premier League games without a win and 328 minutes without a goal in that spell, it took just 88 seconds for Arsenal to blow all of that accumulated anxiety away and recharge their title challenge.

Has Arsenal's recent run of form cost them the Premier League title?

After Arsenal's recent results, Tommy Smyth discusses whether or not Arsenal are still title contenders.
The FC crew discuss Arsenal's four-game winless run and debate whether or not they can still win the Premier League title.

This Premier League season has been something of a carnival sideshow. From the miraculous Leicester City to the macabre Chelsea, the table is chock full of oddities. Among the weirdness, though, one comforting storyline remains.

Arsenal, in traditional Arsenal fashion, appear to be Arsenal-ing their way down the table. They're now five points behind Leicester City and three behind their most likely rival, Manchester City. They've dropped behind hated North London rival Tottenham Hotspur on goal...

Arsenal shown the way to goal by Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe

Bournemouth's Eddie Howe says Benik Afobe's impact hasn't surprised him, ahead of a clash with Afobe's former club Arsenal.

There is a certain irony to be found in the fact that at the same time Arsenal have lost their shooting boots, Benik Afobe has found his.

As Arsenal suffer from a three-match goal drought, jealous glances can be cast at the club's former youth product who has scored in each of his past three games for Bournemouth: the opener in a 3-0 win over Norwich, the equaliser in a 1-1 draw against Sunderland and then the winner in a 2-1 win against Crystal Palace in midweek.

It just goes to show what a clever...

Alexis Sanchez plays the piano on a night off from Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez seems to be getting in the mood for Valentine's Day on Feb. 14. The Arsenal forward, known for his ferocious energy on the pitch, showed off a slightly softer side in his latest video posted on Instagram on Thursday.

How's this for romantic: Sanchez evidently likes to spend his evenings sitting at home by his piano, playing a melancholy melody while a lit candle helps illuminate portraits of his beloved dogs and two soft-toy puppies.
