Arsenal's Calum Chambers targets strong Premier League finish

04 April 2018

The Gabon worldwide netted a brace as the Gunners cruised to a 3-0 win over Stoke City on Sunday afternoon.

Arsenal's Mesut Ozil has got himself caught up in a bit of online banter with the Stoke Police following the Gunner's late win over the Premier League strugglers. But the result left both clubs in the same positions in the Premier League table, with Arsenal sixth and Stoke second bottom.

Since then, Mkhitaryan has added another assist and goal in his first five league appearances, not to mention his Europa League contributions. Danny Welbeck was rewarded a start for his showing against AC Milan the last time out, while there were starts for Calum Chambers and Jack Wilshere who missed the global break. We were too sloppy and not sharp enough in the first half. I like that because it can only make the team stronger.

Dele Alli issued a timely reminder of his talents by scoring twice in four minutes to end Tottenham's 28-year wait for a victory at Chelsea.

Arsenal, in comparison, are in need of a player fitting his description. Stoke were more free-flowing in attack but Calum Chambers and Shkodran Mustafi were always present to deal with their threat.

The ineffective Danny Welbeck was withdrawn soon after for Lacazette, returning after six weeks out with a knee problem, but Stoke were the next to go close - Shaqiri's in-swinging corner causing havoc and coming back off the far post.

Jewdas: Why has Jeremy Corbyn been criticised for meeting the Jewish group?
Labour MP John Woodcock, a longtime critic of Corbyn, said it was "irresponsible and dangerous" for him to have met with Jewdas. Karen Pollock, the chief executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, claimed that Corbyn's meeting was "clearly deliberate".

Aubameyang was denied by a good block by Butland moments before the award of the game-deciding penalty in the 75th minute. The Gunners could be without Petr Cech as he recovers from his groin injury.

"Arsenal are full of quality, we know what they're about, and we need to make it hard for them by making them run, keeping the ball as best as we can and of course score goals and try to keep a clean sheet".

Arsenal took some time to get going and did not threaten the Stoke goal until the midway point of the first half.

Some managers do not allow anybody other than the designated penalty-taker to have a go from 12 yards but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger made it clear he approved of the gesture. The Gabon striker added a second in the 86th minute, before substitute Alexandre Lacazette added a third from the spot.

In addition, some politicians have called on England to boycott the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer, while Gunners fans planning to make the trip to Moscow for the second leg of the quarter final were warned about "anti-British sentiment" due to "heightened political tensions" by a statement on the club's website (via the Guardian).
