Arsenal and Tottenham - Biggest Rivalry in Soccer

Arsenal and Tottenham share one of the biggest rivalries in football and the North London derby is regarded as one of the toughest games in the world.

Yet, there does not seem to be the same kind of animosity between the players according to defender Danny Rose. The Tottenham star was speaking about the potential appointment of Arsene Wenger as the next manager of England. Since the current England team has a number of Spurs players, many pundits predicted that it would be an awkward situation. Rose, though, says that it would not be the case.

Danny Welbeck could be back sooner than initially expected

Danny Welbeck underwent a knee surgery back on May and it was predicted that he would be missing out from almost 1 year of playing time with his return expected to be done in around March or April of 2017 but recent medical reports are now claiming that the English forward might be back sooner.

“He has an inflammation of his knee and they had to go in again to see if it is healing well. If the healing was not good, he would have been out until April. The news was excellent and he will be back around Christmas. That was the only good news of last week.” Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger said as he stated that Danny Welbeck’s return to the pitch will be completed sooner than what was expected.


English Premier League side Arsenal made a surprise move this summer with the loaning of Joel Campbell.

Sporting Lisbon confirmed the transfer of Arsenal forward Cambell on a season-long loan via its official twitter handle – @Sporting_CP. The Costa Rica international was set to get more chances with the long term injury of Danny Welbeck, even as coach Arsene Wenger is keen on adding another striker before the transfer window closes.


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger took a huge gamble going into the season’s opener against Liverpool at the Emirates stadium. Suffering an injury crisis in a time where fans and general discontent is highest, Wenger is definitely under a lot of pressure. Not another failure to win the Premier League, despite being a top club in England.

Jurgen Klopp was practically dancing on the field when new signing Sadio Mane took on young Arsenal defenders before lashing unto a brilliant striker to make it 4-1. The excitement in the camp of the visitors was amazing while Wenger couldn’t hide his angst.

Arsene Wenger’s journey of finding a striker is a tough one

When it comes to signing high profile players and spending big bucks on top performers, Arsenal is not a club that constantly does it and this is a huge blow for them as the Premier League is filled with big spenders who are willing to do whatever it takes in order to sign their desired targets.

One of the positions that Arsene Wenger wants to reinforce before the next season kicks off is the offensive department as the French coach is eager to add a new forward to his squad but his journey has been a fairly difficult one as Jamie Vardy of Leicester City has already voiced his desire to remain with his current team and Vardy was the main summer target that Wenger wanted to secure but unfortunately, the French manager will have to look for someone else.

Arsene Wenger respects the decision taken by Jamie Vardy

Arsene Wenger respects the decision taken by Jamie Vardy to remain at Leicester City.

Arsenal have been interested in the Leicester City forward, who was a major factor in the league title race 2015-16. Even though he is at 29 years of age, Arsenal identifiedVardy as someone who can improve the team immensely going forward. The club do have a great compliment of strikers in the form of Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck, but the recent injury struggles for the latter has left the club in a difficult position. Welbeck has suffered another major knee injury just a few weeks after returning from almost a season on the sidelines.

Arsene Wenger confirms signing Another Striker

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he is likely to sign striker in the summer transfer window in order to compensate for the injury suffered by Danny Welbeck.

The England international suffered yet another major knee injury – just a few months after coming back to the first team – in the 2-2 draw with Manchester City. He has been ruled out for the next nine months, thus forcing him to miss the upcoming Euro 2016. Welbeck was an excellent form in the few matches that he played this season. The injury leaves Arsenal short of forwards and almost no real alternatives for Olivier Giroud.


English men’s national team manager Roy Hodgson is set to put Harry Kane as the pointman in his team, with Adam Lallana too being rewarded with a starting role at the continental championship.

This is in light of the injury to Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck. Player of the Year, Jamie Vardy will have to settle for a place of the bench while he comes on as an impact substitute.

Danny Welbeck proved his Importance

Danny Welbeck once again proved his importance to the Arsenal team by scoring the winner against Norwich City.

The 1-0 victory moves the club closer towards the top three, which would give automatic Champions League qualification for the club. Arsenal looked like being in danger of dropping out of the top four altogether a few weeks ago. However, they have been able to get some important victories since the return of Welbeck. The forward has already scored winners against the likes of Watford. Now, his goal against Norwich has taken his league tally to a respectable four goals in six starts.

Danny Welbeck absence helps Improvement in him

Danny Welbeck’s extended absence from the first team has helped him improve as a person according to manager Arsene Wenger, who has also praised the attitude of the England international.

Following a long-term knee injury, Welbeck spent almost 10 months on the sidelines. He returned back to the first-team in February and has already started making a huge impact by scoring some important goals. A return of three goals from just five starts may just lead Arsenal into believing that they have unlocked the goalscoring potential of the former Manchester United forward.
