Arsenal 0 : 2 Bayern Furious Flamini Confronts Sluggish Ozil For Lack Of Effort

Mathieu Flamini tore into Mesut Ozil in the middle of Arsenal’s Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich on Wednesday night, apparently accusing the German of a lack of effort.

flamini ozil post

The flashpoint came in the second half after a Bayern move broke down and the ball is collected from behind the goal by Lukas Fabianski.

Ozil points his finger accusingly in the direction of defender Laurent Koscielny but is given a stern rebuke by Flamini, leading to a little bit of pushing and shoving between the pair.

The exchange of words summed up Arsenal’s frustrations on a night when they were once again outclassed by the German champions, who took a firm grip on the last 16 tie with a 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium.

And £42.5million man Ozil was especially disappointing – bought to influence matches such as this, he was largely anonymous and drew a heap of criticism from fans on Twitter.

His heat map from the first leg match showed up Ozil’s lack of perspiration, but accusations of laziness were dispelled by the fact he ran 11.69km during the 90 minutes – the third highest on the pitch.

However, Flamini covered an impressive 13.53km – the highest of anyone – and was so vindicated in his stinging criticism of Ozil.

Ozil’s bad night was compounded when he saw a poor penalty saved by Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in the opening stages of the game.

Arsenal Left Frustrated After Man Utd Settle For A Draw At Emirates

Arsenal 0 – 0 Manchester United : February 12th 2014

The Emirates Stadium crowd was left frustrated on Wednesday night after Arsenal failed to beat Man Utd at its worst with the game ending on a stalemate.

arsenal man u 2014 february

The hard aspect for United, and David Moyes, to take was that while a draw was much better than the worst case scenario, they slipped further away from fourth place. A win for Liverpool increased the gap to United in seventh to 11 points and Tottenham’s victory against Newcastle meant that they too moved further ahead. The problems get worse for United in that respect. Defeat would have been unthinkable.

Since Arsenal opened their new stadium in 2006, United have won three of the nine games they have played there, including that Champions League semi-final second leg in 2009 in which their superiority meant a 3-1 humbling for the home team. Arsenal have won three of those nine games and tonight was the third draw. It was very far from a classic and it said plenty about how both these sides are stuttering.

Swallow me up! Giroud looks despondent as the chance to put Arsenal in front goes begging

United are stumbling when they need to pick up momentum. Arsenal have been spooked by that 5-1 thrashing at Anfield and are struggling to re-establish themselves. “A little bit nervous” was the assessment of his team by Arsene Wenger, in the light of the result at Anfield. His team are still in the title race but they are showing vulnerability when they should have been capitalising on Chelsea’s failure to beat West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday.

There was a frantic ending although it was a long way from those days when these two sides divided up the spoils in English football at the turn of the millennium. By the end of the game United were forced to cling on as Arsenal, the better team on the night, whipped up a storm of attacks to try to win the match.

At the other end, Robin Van Persie had the opportunity to nick a victory for United with a header that Wojciech Szczesny saved well. United defended better but their attacking fluency is still absent. Moyes stayed with the same back four that had creaked badly at times against Fulham three days earlier. They could not afford the same lapses in concentration.

Arsenal Fan Stabs A Liverpool Fan To Death After 5-1 Loss

A Kenyan Liverpool supporter was stabbed to death Meru Town, Kenya, by an agitated Arsenal counterpart after both allegedly disagreed over the outcome of Saturday’s Premier League match between the two teams.

wilshere post

The Reds ran out 5-1 victors after racing to a 4-0 lead within 20 minutes, dealing a blow to the Gunners’ title hopes.

According to Kenyan newspaper People Daily, Imenti North police boss Tom Odero said David Mwangi, a boda-boda (motorcycle taxi) operator, stabbed 25-year-old Anthony Mutethia on the chest.

“He was pronounced dead on arrival at Meru Level Five Hospital,” he stated. “The assailant ran away but his motorbike was taken to the police station by Makutano residents.”

Reports from revellers of an entertainment joint at Makutano Shopping Centre revealed the two started arguing at the closing moments of the match. They alleged that Mwangi got bitter after Mutethia started mocking him. On their way out, the argument got nasty and prompting Mwangi to stab the latter.

“He was also drinking beer as the game proceeded and because Mutethia was also a bit drunk, they could not come to terms over their argument,” said a reveller who had accompanied Mutethia. “This is just a game for entertainment and he should not have got so [hot] tempered.”

Police have launched investigations to establish the motive of the alleged murder.


What Time Is It? Its 5 Past Arsenal : Liverpool Thrash Arsenal 5-1

Liverpool produced one of the most stunning opening 20 minutes seen at Anfield – and arguably one of the best ever – to blow away Arsenal by beating them 5-1.

skirtel arsenal

Brendan Rodgers’ rampant Reds fired four goals before the visitors knew what had hit them, and they were incapable of finding a response.

The irony was that the league’s leading striker Luis Suarez, whom Gunners boss Arsene Wenger tried so hard to sign in the summer with a cheeky £40,000,001 bid, did not get near any of them.

Read it and weep: The scoreboard at Anfield says it all on a miserable afternoon for Arsenal

Suarez, who deserved a goal for a brilliant volley which beat goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny but not the post, could claim an assist for Raheem Sterling’s first of two but Liverpool were well in control by then thanks to two from defender Martin Skrtel – the first after just 52 seconds.

There was a sense of incredulity around Anfield when Daniel Sturridge caressed home the fourth with less than a quarter of the match played but for Arsenal it was more a feeling of bewilderment as an eight-game unbeaten run came to an end with Mikel Arteta’s second-half penalty no consolation.

It left a question mark hanging over their ability to sustain a challenge on three fronts with Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday, quickly followed by Liverpool in the FA Cup and then Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Liverpool’s first home league win over Arsenal since March 2007 moved them to within five points of their opponents, who started the day with a two-point advantage over Manchester City and Chelsea at the top of the table.

Rodgers has ruled his side in – and then out – of the title race but anything close to a repeat of this form in the remainder of the campaign and he may have to reconsider once again.

An 11th home victory in 13 attempts, their best record since 1987-88, indicates where their strength lies and with Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham all still to come to Anfield Liverpool should be able to set their sights higher than merely securing fourth place – providing they can avoid some inconsistency on the road.


Superb Double By Oxlade Chamberlain Takes Arsenal Top Of The League

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hit a second-half double as Arsenal returned to the top of the Barclays Premier League with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium.

oxlade charmberlain palace post

The 20-year-old England midfielder – fit again following five months out with a serious knee injury suffered on the first day of the season – finally ended Palace’s stubborn resistance when he chipped in a fine pass from Santi Cazorla just after the restart.

After Cameron Jerome’s diving header was saved by Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny, Oxlade-Chamberlain struck again to make sure of victory when he combined with Olivier Giroud before running clear to beat Julian Speroni after 73 minutes.

Arsenal now move two points above Manchester City, who host third-placed Chelsea on Monday night, while the Eagles remain in a dogfight for survival, just a point above 18th-placed West Ham.

Wenger Blames Arsenal’s Mistakes After Being Thumped 6-3 By Man City

The bad day in office for the current league leaders Arsenal came when they faced Man City at Eltihad Stadium. Arsenal received one of their greatest defeats at Eltihad when they lost 6-3 to Man City.

City's Samir Nasri battles Giroud and Sagna of Arsenal

Arsene Wenger felt his Arsenal side could have taken something from their 6-3 loss at Manchester City.

But the Frenchman admits their performance was error-strewn and that was the reason behind them conceding so many.

Negredo scores the 2nd City goal for City to take them 2-1 up at the end of

“We had the best defence in the league but we conceded many goals,” Wenger admitted.

“Honestly, we could have scored at least six today as well. It was a very open game, we made too mistakes though.

“Our strength until today was our defensive strength but that went today.”

Wenger insists that they could have taken something from the game, and added that he thinks both Everton and Southampton were as good as City.
“It hurts to lose like that, but we made too many mistakes in the middle of the park,” Wenger said.

“Overall they deserved the win, we have to go home and recover, we made too many technical mistakes.”

The returning Theo Walcott scored a brace for Arsenal and Per Mertesacker also found the net for the visitors, but goals from Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Negredo, David Silva, Yaya Toure and a Fernandinho double secured the points for City.

Wenger admitted that Arsenal did not deserve anything from a game in which the north London club were comfortably second best.


Arsenal Go Four Points Clear After Beating ‘Wanyama’s’ Team Southampton

Arsenal moved four points clear at the top of the Premier League with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Southampton at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Giroud scores

Olivier Giroud grabbed both goals. A late second from the penalty spot would seal the game but the first set up the victory.

And that was entirely his own work.

In the 22nd minute the Frenchman hassled Artur Boruc into an error as the keeper tried to dribble the ball out and then tapped into an empty net.


The early stages were sedate. Southampton had arrived with the best defensive record in the Premier League – five goals conceded in their first 11 games.

They set up in an organised fashion and onus was on Arsenal to break them down.

And that is what they did.

Arsenal grabbed the lead in the first half through sheer will.

In the 11th minute, Aaron Ramsey intercepted on the edge of the area and his pass deflected into the path of Wilshere on the right. He reached the byline and dinked a wonderful chip over Boruc. It drifted on to the far post and into the hands of the grateful keeper.

Then, five minutes later, Arsenal hit the same upright when Mesut Ozil’s cross picked out Ramsey with a pin-point cross and the Welshman produced a clever back-flick.

Arsenal were full of controlled creativity. They were prepared to chase and harry Southampton out of their stride then use their guile to prise them apart.

The epitome of that was the opening goal.

In the 22nd minute Giroud chased a regulation pass back to Boruc. The keeper tried the trick his way out of trouble rather than clear. The Frenchman robbed him and gleefully prodded his ninth goal of the season into the empty net.

However Southampton would muscle soon their way back into the game in response to going behind.

They pressured down their right and came close when Mikel Arteta sliced a clearance to Adam Lallana on the edge of the area. The England international unleashed a volley that Szczesny had to tip over.

Six minutes before the break Jay Rodriguez forced the keeper to make another fine save away to his left.

At the break, Arsenal had the lead but Southampton were making it hard for them to retain that advantage.


The visitors continued to pressure after half-time. The impressive Morgan Schneiderlin expertly set up Lallana to drive straight at Szczesny early on.

It was a measure of Southampton’s confidence. Despite the scoreline, they were happy to press for an equaliser straight away.

At this point, the raw statistics suggested they were enjoying greater possession than the home team and passing marginally better. Both were unusual for an away side at Emirates Stadium.

Ozil fired into the arms of Boruc on the hour as Arsenal relieved some of the pressure on their goal. Then, just before Theo Walcott came on, Wilshere headed straight at the keeper.

However Arsenal had not regained full control and their cause was hindered further when Arteta had to go off 16 minutes from time.

But Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny stood firm as Arsenal wore down Southampton and blunted their attack.

By now the visitors were becoming desperate and Walcott was the perfect player to capitalise. In the 82nd minute he drove just wide after a counterattack.

Shortly afterwards Jose Fonte hauled back Mertesacker at a corner and Giroud stroked home from the spot.

A forgettable game perhaps but a crucial three points.






Van Persie Scores Again As Man United Beat Arsenal 1- 0

The champions of the Barclay s Premier League year 2012/2013 Man united managed to defeat the league leaders Arsenal by  1 goal to nil in a  match played at the Old trafford.

man bea arsenal van persie

Since leaving the Emirates last year, van Persie has never failed to score against his ex-employers and he made that three games in succession as he bagged the winner for United.

He rose to meet a Wayne Rooney corner on 27 minutes to give David Moyes a much needed win on another amazing weekend, in which Chelsea’s home draw on Saturday was followed within 24 hours by shock defeats for Tottenham and Manchester City. United have now closed to within five points of Arsenal, who suffered their first league defeat since the opening day of the season.

Robin van Persie celebrates his winning goal against Arsenal

Indeed, six points now separate the first eight in the table, with Liverpool and Southampton now Arsenal’s closest pursuers.

Quite apart from van Persie’s goal, Rooney ran himself to a standstill and Phil Jones was immense, initially in midfield, then in central defence following the departure of Nemanja Vidic with a head injury.

The opening 25 minutes had been played out in midfield, with neither side able or seemingly willing to get hold of the game.

A rare deflected effort from Rooney had showed his willingness and he played a big part in the breakthrough just before the half-hour.


Rooney made some space on the left and sent over a wicked cross that Thomas Vermaelen could only head over his own bar for a corner.

Rooney then took the resulting corner which saw van Persie leap above Olivier Giroud and glance the ball into the top corner to give United the lead.

Missing Per Mertesacker due to a virus that was also affecting Mikel Arteta, the Gunners lacked the zip that has taken them clear at the Premier League summit.

Only Mathieu Flamini escaped the malaise, and he was booked for a late tackle on the influential Jones.

The young England star was one of United’s stand-out performers, driving out of midfield in a manner so obviously lacking for the past three seasons.

He was also at the  centre of the first of two worrying head clashes. Cautioned when he clattered into Wojciech Szczesny, TV replays showed the contact to be accidental.

For a few seconds, the Arsenal keeper did not move. After treatment, Szczesny continued, as did Jones, who had moved away rubbing his head.

Nevertheless, given the recent furore over Hugo Lloris over the last week, the decision raised an eyebrow.

Then just before the break and another head injury came as United suffered a huge blow when Vidic left dazed after a clash with his own keeper David De Gea and that meant he did not return after the break.

Tom Cleverley was the man brought on ahead of Marouane Fellaini to replace Vidic, which meant a tweaking of United’s side with Jones – who had impressed in central midfield – dropping back to partner Jonny Evans.

Arsenal pushed hard at the start of the second-half, but on the hour again Rooney was at the heart of everything and he should have doubled the lead.

A Shinji Kagawa flick-on came to Rooney via van Persie, but with the goal at his mercy he sent his left-footed shot wide.

With that Jack Wilshere was introduced by Arsenal as they looked to push for the equaliser, but United defended valiantly.

Chris Smalling was involved in key moments at both ends before Sagna’s low cross bounced inches away from Nicklas Bendtner – but the game was United’s, who were inspired by Rooney.



Link Sports : Arsenal Beat Liverpool 2-0 To Go 5 Points Clear

Arsenal opened up a five-point gap at the top of the Premier League thanks to an impressive 2-0 win over Liverpool at Emirates Stadium.

arsenal vs liverpool 2-0 2013


Before kick-off, there were questions of Arsène Wenger’s side. They were leading the pack but could they beat their fellow title-chasers?

Over this 90 minutes they provided an emphatic, undeniable answer.

Santi Cazorla scored the first on 19 minutes by firing home after his own header had hit the post.


Then Aaron Ramsey – who else? – sealed the victory with a thunderous effort from 20 yards.

Liverpool did not under-perform. In fact, they were fluent and dangerous. It is just that the home side smothered the significant threat they posed and took the chances that came to them.

That sounds simplistic but, in reality, it was underpinned with sweat, skill and steel.

It was a massive victory for this Arsenal team.

They WILL have a major part to play in the title race this season.


Arsène Wenger made seven changes from the side eliminated from the Capital One Cup by Chelsea in midweek.

But in comparison to the XI that had won 2-0 at Crystal Palace last weekend, there was only one change. Tomas Rosicky came in for the injured Mathieu Flamini.

Bacary Sagna made his 250th appearance for the Club,Jack Wilshere was out of the squad with an ankle injury.

Mikel Arteta had been sent off at Selhurst Park but sat out his suspension on Tuesday against Jose Mourinho’s men.

Chelsea’s defeat at Newcastle at lunchtime opened up the opportunity for the home side to go five points clear with victory in this evening fixture.

Emirates Stadium was eager, excited and expectant and in equal measure.


The opening stages were perhaps too important to be fluent. Both sides had so much resting on the game.

The first sight of goal fell to Rosicky. He exchanged passes with Cazorla and rifled a shot across the face of goal. Simon Mignolet touched it wide.

However Liverpool had looked lethal in recent games and they would respond.

Jordan Henderson was given too much space and was almost in sight of goal before Sagna slid in to dispossess.

Then a Luis Suarez corner was flicked over the Arsenal defence to the far post by Steven Gerrard and the ball seemed destined for the corner before Rosicky cleared his lines.

Liverpool appeared to have settled.

Then Arsenal scored.

Sagna roared down the right and sent a deep cross into the area. Cazorla’s header beat Mignolet but bounced back off the post. It fell to the Spaniard again and he had the poise to return a rasping shot into the empty net.

It was Cazorla’s first goal of the season. He raced to the corner flag, got down on his knees and beat the ground in celebration.


Seconds later he nearly beat Mignolet but the flying Belgian keeper clung on to his shot.

Liverpool tried to respond. Their speed and fluidity hushed the home crowd whenever they attacked. However, Arsenal had the clearer chances.

Mignolet made an unconvincing save from Ramsey’s shot and before the whistle Cazorla rolled a shot just wide.

Arsenal went into the dressing room at half time with the edge in the play and in the scoreline.


Liverpool went on the offensive after the restart. They pushed back Arsenal and might have equalised when Suarez found an unmarked Henderson at the far post.

He fired over when he should have hit the target and could have scored.

Again Arsenal would respond with better chances. Giroud intercepted when Kolo Toure tried to find Martin Skrtel and the Frenchman went one-on-one with Mignolet.

He clipped his shot over the keeper but wide of the post.

Then Rosicky and Cazorla combined to find the Frenchman but he could only toe-poke an effort at Mignolet.

Arsenal were building momentum and it would culminate with a goal.

That said, the strike itself came out of nothing. Ramsey collected the ball 20 yards out, teed himself up and fired a vicious shot just over Mignolet and just under the bar.

ramsey scores

Even by the standards of his stellar season, it was an incredible goal.

Liverpool were not beaten yet. Having digested the goal, they went on the search for a way back. They began peppering the Arsenal area with corners and crosses. From one, Suarez bent a low cross-shot against the outside of the post.

Wenger brought on Nacho Monreal for Rosicky to shore up the left side. After the Spaniard set up Ozil to shoot, Wenger was forced into another change when Gibbs went down holding his calf.  Thomas Vermaelen replaced him at left back.

With eight minutes left, Szczesny made crucial saves from Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho.

While Arsenal had been winning, conceding needless goals was a problem. But the Arsenal keeper seemed destined to preserve a clean sheet this afternoon.

Even in the final seconds when Per Mertesacker passed the ball to Suarez and he curled an effort inches past the far post.
