Arsenal CEO Makes Contact With 36-year-old Manager Following Emery’s Loss To Man City

Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis met with Mikel Arteta following his side’s loss to Manchester City in their opening game of the season.

The Gunners fell to a 2-0 defeat in the hands of the reigning Premier League leaders, in what was Unai Emery’s official first game at the club.

Reports in the Daily Telegraph claim that Gazidis spoke with Arteta after the game in order to ensure both parties were on good terms.

Mikel Arteta who was a sung hero during his days at the Emirates, was one of the coaches contacted to take over from Arsene Wenger during the summer, following his brilliant performance serving as assistant manager to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

The Gunners opted to appoint Unai Emery who had just left his job at Paris Saint Germain, and reports have it that Gazidis only wanted to ensure there were ‘no hard feelings’ between Arteta and Arsenal, wishing him good luck in the Premier League with City.

Emery was criticised by some pundits and coaches for his approach during their 2-0 loss against Manchester City, after the Spaniard told his players to play out from the back against a high-pressing City.

Arsenal will hope to record their first win when they play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in their next league fixture.

Chris Sutton

Chelsea legend Chris Sutton has spoken on the chances Arsenal have to win the Premier League this season.

Sutton who was only replying to the questions asked boldly replied by saying Arsenal will not win the Premier League this season.

The Chelsea legend is not moved by the threat the Unai Emery side pose to other top teams after rising from a two consecutive defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea consecutively to winning their remaining six games in the league.

Aside from shooting to the 4th position in the premier league table, Arsenal have gone nine games with a winning streak.

Despite all of the signs, Sutton insists that the North London club will not emerge, winner of the league, this season.

He has pointed to Liverpool and Manchester City as the two potential candidates for the title, not mentioning Chelsea despite keeping their second position place.

However, Sutton said the only possibility for Arsenal is to have a return to the Champions League next season by finishing in the top four positions above their London rivals, Tottenham.

So far, Arsenal have earned 18 points from the 8 games played so far and they hope to continue their winning streak when they welcome Leicester City to the Emirate Stadium on Monday 22 October after the international break.

Super Eagles

About three European clubs expressed their delight in seeing the Super Eagles thrash Libya by 4-0 in the 2019 African Nations Cup Qualifiers on Saturday.

Former Watford striker Odion Ighalo had extended his goalscoring form in the Chinese League to the national team with his sweet performance as he saw the back of the net three times, making it the first hattrick of his career.

The game was a delight to clubs including Arsenal, Chelsea and Bordeaux who all monitored the game that was played at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo and they took to their social media platforms to hail their players and the win.

For the Stamford Bridge, they were glad Ola Aina made it from the bench to contribute to the big win by the Nigerian side.

Also, Arsenal could not hold it from celebrating the Naija boy who had his club side form extended to the Gernot Rohr team by giving an assist in the game.

Arsenal on their twitter handle stated that Iwobi set up Odion Ighalo for his second goal with an inch-perfect through pass.

It was same for Bordeaux who monitored Samuel Kanu’s performance and had it on record.

However, the clubs expect to see another good performance when the team converge to face same Libya in the return leg this week.

UEFA Nations League: Southgate makes case for clubs, players

Published

Southgate

The UEFA Nations League has been ongoing since the commencement of the international break and it has not been an easy one for players who have got just a little time to rest.

England national team coach Gareth Southgate is one of those who will hit out on the Premier League for rushing to begin the league without giving necessary conditions to players who were at the Russia 2018 World Cup.

Southgate who spoke ahead of his side’s Nations League game against Spain noted that clubs are placed in an impossible situation where they have to field players who have not rested to achieve results.

According to the England boss it was wrong for the Premier League to have started on August 10; just 27 days after his side were eliminated by Belgium in the World Cup.

Citing Tottenham as an example, Southgate said many of their players reached the semi-finals of the World Cup and had no rest until the league started, pointing it as the reason why they have failed to give their best performance.

The situation becomes more difficult for players as they have to return back to their various countries for the UEFA competition without enough rest for them to have.

Southgate is the second after Liverpool manager to have made such a claim, with the German manager arguing that the Nations League should be scrapped to allow players to refresh before they return back to their various clubs.

Why Unai Emery delights in Ramsey’s contract mess

Published

Aaron Ramsey

It is no longer news at Arsenal that Aaron Ramsey will be leaving the club at the end of the season as a free agent.

Ramsey’s contract already runs into the last months with a deal not agreed for an extension as efforts to hold talks with the player failed over personal terms.

It is revealed that the player was offered a deal worth £185,000-a-week which he rejects in demand for a higher figure.

However, it has been revealed as reported by Tribalfootball that manager Unai Emery is well delighted with the development as he will not favour a £185,000 deal for the Wales international per week.

According to the report, a huge deal for the contract rebel will stand as a barrier to the Spanish manager’s intention to sign more players in the summer because the club would have reached its financial height.

However, the former PSG manager is believed to be behind the Gunners’ decision to back off from further contract talks with the Wales man.

Meanwhile, efforts to have Ramsey sold in the January transfer window so as to cash on him might not be with the player already making it clear his intention to remain until the end of the season.

spain vs england

England will be travelling to Spain today (Monday) with the majority of their Premier League players for the return leg of the UEFA Nations League.

Luis Enrique will hope to keep his pride by not losing at home hence, he is expected to field his strongest team against their English visitors.

Familiar to English Team, David de Gea favours a start ahead of new Chelsea recruit Kepa Arrizabalaga in the goal post.

Also, Chelsea duo, Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta should get the nod in the full-back positions. The latter will take the place in the absence of Dani Carvajal who is injured.

This remains an advantage to the Spanish team knowing the two fullbacks are familiar with the English attack.

Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata would have been a good pick for Enrique but the player’s bad form will keep him on the bench at the beginning of the game while former Liverpool flop Lago Aspas who was interesting to watch in the first leg at Wenbley favours a start instead.

In the midfield, Thiago, Saul Niguez and Rodrigo are expected to start as Spain could have a similar look to the one at Wembley.

The Spanish national team now top the group with 5 points above England and Croatia.
