Liverpool and Arsenal shun defensive midfielders; creativity over destruction

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno, Craig Burley and Stuart Holden are in agreement the pressure is piled on Liverpool ahead of their Capital One Cup match against Bournemouth, with a clash against Arsenal looming.

The defensive midfielder is not a footballing dinosaur or dodo, a species consigned to extinction by the changing of the times. How could it be when Chelsea's Nemanja Matic is perhaps the most influential player of the season?

Yet it has no counterpart at two of the supposed elite: The defensive midfielder seems a dying breed at Liverpool and Arsenal. Matic highlights a philosophical divide in football. This summer Chelsea paid 21 million pounds to re-sign the man they sold for a sixth of that...

Arsene Wenger has unearthed a gem in Hector Bellerin

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno, Craig Burley and Stuart Holden are in agreement the pressure is piled on Liverpool ahead of their Capital One Cup match against Bournemouth, with a clash against Arsenal looming.

Arsene Wenger may have unearthed a little gem when he least expected it. The Arsenal boss almost found his hand was forced into playing rookie full-back Hector Bellerin against Newcastle last Saturday because of the club's ongoing injury problems, but the young Spaniard showed a determination and desire that made you think he's got what it takes to eventually become a first-team regular.

Perhaps Bellerin's greatest asset is his lightning pace. He's so fast, in fact, that he beat Theo Walcott's time...

Mesut Ozil nearing return from injury for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal

During his first home start of the season, Olivier Giroud turned in a two goal effort in Arsenal's 4-1 win over Newcastle United.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil feels his recovery from a knee problem is now "on the right path'' and cannot wait to get back into action.

The German international has not featured since suffering a partial rupture of the outer band of the left knee joint against Chelsea on October 5.

The initial prognosis for a likely return was for early in 2015, and Ozil suggested he could soon be back in contention. The German international was pictured walking out for a session at the Gunners' Hertfordshire training...

Thierry Henry doubted he could score goals, says Arsene Wenger

Take a look back at the 10 best goals Thierry Henry has scored in a Red Bulls shirt.

Arsene Wenger has told L'Equipe that Arsenal's all-time leading goal scorer Thierry Henry claimed he did not "know how to score goals" when he was told to play centre-forward.

Henry 37, arrived in North London from Juventus in 1999 after six disappointing months in Turin where he was largely ineffective playing on the wing.

With Davor Suker, Dennis Bergkamp and Nwankwo Kanu all vying for a place up front in Wenger's side, Henry initially had to settle for a bit-part role.

Wenger, 65, had hoped...

Lucas Silva future unresolved despite Real Madrid and Arsenal interest

Carlo Ancelotti admits that Real Madrid may be in the market for a midfielder, and Lucas Silva is a potential target

Real Madrid and Arsenal target Lucas Silva says his future remains unresolved amid speculation Cruzeiro have offered him a contract extension.

Madrid have made clear their interest in the 21-year-old but have reportedly seen two bids rejected already, with the Brazilian club's president, Gilvan de Pinho Tavares, having set the asking price at 15 million euros. Marca has previously reported that Arsenal have offered to pay that amount.

The player's father recently said Silva is keen to move on in...
