A clash of ideologies as philosopher Van Gaal faces Wenger the professor

Louis van Gaal is looking forward to facing Arsene Wenger's Arsenal after Manchester United saw off a spirited Preston side in the FA Cup.

They are the philosopher and the professor. The managers of Manchester United and Arsenal are not seen simply as functionaries; they seem to possess a higher calling. Their work has consumed Louis van Gaal and Arsene Wenger. They are two of the profession's great survivors, the last men born in the immediate postwar years still in charge of Europe's elite clubs. They are antidotes to ageism when many of their rivals are young enough to be their sons.

Wenger, 20 months Van Gaal's senior at 65, became...

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil yet to find magic formula at Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are the two most expensive players in Arsenal history. Can Arsene Wenger find a way to use them both in the same team?

Arsenal's acquisition of Alexis Sanchez had supporters beaming with excitement over the summer -- they hoped the Chilean and club-record capture Mesut Ozil would link up effectively to help guide Arsene Wenger's men back to Premier League glory.

Ozil, who won a World Cup winners' medal in Brazil with Germany over the summer, was understandably granted a longer leave of absence on account of his exploits in South America. This meant supporters had to wait until the 2-2 draw at Everton in late August...

Spells of Arsenal dominance riddled by in-game inconsistency

It's down to the wire in the Premier League as Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool vie for a Champions League spot.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Olivier Giroud never gives up, and that's the strength of a good striker.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal recorded a 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road, maintaining their third-place position after a midweek Premier League round when the top eight teams all won.

The victory felt eerily familiar. It could have been the reverse fixture, a 2-1 win at the Emirates on Boxing Day. It could have been the match a couple of days afterwards, a 2-1 win over West Ham at Upton Park. It could have been the midweek 2-1 victory against a struggling Leicester side a month...

Hector Bellerin proving he can be Arsenal's right-back of the future

Arsenal's Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez propelled the Gunners to a 2-1 victory over QPR at Loftus Road.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Olivier Giroud never gives up, and that's the strength of a good striker.

We saw a different side to Arsenal in their 2-1 win over QPR at Loftus Road. Penned in by their opponent's direct style, Arsene Wenger's team were forced to play on the break, looking to transition quickly into attack and catch Rangers' sluggish defence off-guard.

Attacking full-backs were key to that strategy. Left-back Kieran Gibbs created the opening goal with a storming run down the left, but the man on the right-hand side was arguably even more impressive. Throughout the 90 minutes, Hector Bellerin...

Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez score, but defenders impress in Arsenal win

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Alexis Sanchez (69') Queens Park Rangers 0-2 Arsenal
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Olivier Giroud goal (64') QPR 0-1 Arsenal

Arsenal secured their second Premier League win in four days with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday evening. Goals from Olivier Giroud and Alexis put the Gunners in a comfortable position, but not for the first time this season -- and not even for the first time against QPR -- they let in a late goal to make the final minutes far more nerve-racking than they should have been.

They held out to take an important three points on a night when all the teams around them...

Arsenal need energy against QPR, so time to drop Mesut Ozil

Arsene Wenger insists his side are nowhere near to joining the Premier League title race, despite his side sitting just four points behind second-placed Manchester City in the table.

It must be a strange time to be an Arsenal fan. Seven wins from eight Premier League games in 2015 point to quite a resurgence at the club after the opening three months of the season were beyond embarrassing.

Topping the injury table had left Arsene Wenger with a threadbare squad and, as a result, they disappointed. However, things started to turn in December as the cavalry returned and, slowly but surely, the team has kicked into gear and found some impressive form. With three wins from three,...
