Arsenal’s title hopes took a blow this week as the barcodes tore up the history books to record their first league win at Arsenal for nine years. Whilst the damage of that result was lessened by results elsewhere, Arsene Wenger will have been concerned by the dropped points, particularly as his side were a little fortunate to come out with a win against a resilient Wolves side in mid-week.
The club was struck with further injury concerns for defender Thomas Vermaelen, and this combined with a suspension for defensive partner Laurent Koscielny, leaves the Gunners a little short at the back for their trip to Goodison Park on Sunday- a crucial game in their season.
On the blogs this week there is discussion of why losing captain Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona this summer could be a blessing in disguise, whether Theo Walcott is ready to take centre stage in Arsenal’s title tilt and a rundown of the potential January targets for Arsene Wenger.
As always there is also the best of Arsenal’s online library.
