Gunners endure nightmare game

West Brom 2-1 Arsenal

Arsène Wenger vents his frustration during Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat at West Brom.

Arsenal failed to seize on an opportunity to take top spot in the Premier League for the second successive game on Saturday as the Gunners lost away to West Brom.

This was one of those games that come along every once in a while where everything that can go wrong does go wrong.

Gunners battle to draw

Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham

Arsenal came through a real test of strength and character on Sunday evening to salvage a point from a game in which they were second best for large periods.

The North London derby was always going to be a very difficult game for the Gunners given the mauling suffered at the hands of Bayern Munich in mid week and the number of injuries reducing Arsene Wenger to a threadbare squad, therefore leading to only one change from the side that lost to Bayern.

Gunners put back in their place

Bayern Munich 5-1 Arsenal


Bayern Munich had a point to prove having lost at the Emirates Stadium in their last Champions League outing, and they did just that with an excellent display that put the Gunners firmly back in their place.

Much was made of the wonderful, flowing attacking football displayed by the Germans on Wednesday night. There can be no doubt that Munich are a far better side than Arsenal, but Arsene Wenger’s side didn’t help themselves at the Allianz Arena.

Gunners emerge on top in Wales

Swansea 0-3 Arsenal

Koscielny Swansea

Arsenal saw their Premier League run extended to five straight wins on Saturday with a very impressive victory away to Swansea, a side who beat the Gunners both home and away last season.

The performance from Arsenal was one that had the hallmark of a side that feels comfortable and confident in itself as Arsene Wenger’s team had to weather a first half storm. The Gunners were far from their best during the first period and even struggled to get out of their own half at times with Swansea comfortably keeping possession and putting their opponents under pressure.

Poor Gunners dumped out

Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 Arsenal

Lucas Joao

A week, as they say, is a long time in football. Arsenal would have certainly had this famous phrase ringing in their ears on Tuesday night as they went from beating the mighty Bayern Munich to being dumped out of the League Cup 3-0 away to Sheffield Wednesday exactly seven days later.

This night had a disastrous feeling about it as early as the fourth minute when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reported a tightening of his hamstring and had to be replaced

Arsenal 2-1 Everton

Arsenal rounded off a perfect week on Saturday with a hard fought victory over Everton which saw the Gunners move into top spot, albeit temporarily.

The victory was all the more impressive, given the fact that the team had put in so much hard work and effort to see off Bayern Munich in mid-week, while Everton had the entire week to focus on their preparations.
