Campbell, Podolski & Sanogo exits leave inconsistent Arsenal light up top

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses Arsenal's defensive cover in Gabriel Paulista. Marcotti feels the centre-back position may now be well covered for Arsene Wenger's side.

Here's an interesting stat -- Arsenal have yet to win three Premier League games in a row. That is something that must change because as it is, such a poor run threatens to undermine their season.

Arsene Wenger's men go into the Aston Villa match on Sunday following wins over Stoke and Manchester City. The latter was an impressive reminder of Wenger's nous and Arsenal's quality but if they really want to kick on, they must find a winning rhythm between now and May.

They've gone close a couple of...

Arsenal reveling in newfound squad balance

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses Arsenal's defensive cover in Gabriel Paulista. Marcotti feels the centre-back position may now be well covered for Arsene Wenger's side.

For most of this season, Arsenal have had an imbalanced squad.

Some of that was down to the fact that players were missing through short-, mid- and long-term injuries. However, when you looked at how the squad was constructed in the summer, it boiled down to the fact that the Gunners had too many attacking options, and not enough defensive depth.

So far this January, three forwards who hardly featured have left the club on loan. Lukas Podolski went to Inter Milan, Yaya Sanogo to Crystal Palace...

Arsenal's Mesut Ozil sends heartfelt message to his Twitter fans

Defiantly perched atop his garden steps like Winston Churchill in his younger days, Mesut Ozil has delivered a stirring sermon from his mount to thank his vast legions of social media followers for their unerring support over the years.

Word of warning: You may want to have a silken handkerchief nearby in case the raw passion on display causes you to involuntarily cry tears of pure emotion.

Coquelin must still prove to Arsenal that he is a long-term solution

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses Arsenal's defensive cover in Gabriel Paulista. Marcotti feels the centre-back position may now be well covered for Arsene Wenger's side.

You cannot really blame Francis Coquelin for taking his time.

After all, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger took his time before giving Coquelin a proper chance in the first team. Coquelin is out of contract at the end of the season, he's been offered a new three-year deal, and Wenger says he's confident that Coquelin will sign and stay.

And on the back of one magnificent game at Manchester City, we've all decided Coquelin is the answer to all of Arsenal's problems in midfield. The trouble is that I'm...

Gabriel Paulista: What can Arsenal expect from Brazilian defender?

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger is hopeful of a deal for Villarreal defender Gabriel Paulista.

Background: Gabriel Armando "Paulista" de Abreu

Though born in the southern city of Sao Paulo, Gabriel learned his trade with Esporte Clube Vitoria in Bahia, north east Brazil. The academy product was promoted to the club's first team in 2010 and soon found himself dropped in at the deep end, playing out of position at right back against a Neymar-led Santos in the 2010 Copa do Brasil final. Vitoria lost 3-2 over two legs; Neymar scoring one of the goals and missing a penalty.

The young defender...

Attacking Arsenal full of options as Wenger's men fight on three fronts

Arsene Wenger says his Arsenal side will fight to retain the FA Cup following their fourth-round win at Brighton.

Not too long ago, Theo Walcott was roundly mocked for suggesting the current Arsenal squad had an attack to rival that of 2003-04's Invincibles. However, after Walcott scored as a revamped Arsenal attack saw off Brighton in the fourth round of the FA Cup, it's easy to see what he was driving at.

Arsenal don't have an individual whose gifts or garlands can match Thierry Henry or Dennis Bergkamp. However, they do have an abundance of attackers from the tier below those fabled figures. The stars may...
