Arteta sent Arsene Wenger warning
Arsenal legend Martin Keown has fired Mikel Arteta a warning about bringing Arsene Wenger back into the fold at the club.
Gunners boss Arteta this week said he hopes to offer the legendary manager some sort of role at the Emirates Stadium, although Keown doesn’t think it’s such a great idea.
While Keown says he does think Wenger should be part of the club again in some capacity, he’s warned Arteta about what it might mean for his own role.
Howe responds to jeers
Arsenal fans directed some pretty brutal chants at Newcastle following their side’s 2-0 win.
Following their takeover by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, Newcastle are the richest club in the world.
But they’ve struggled in the Premier League this season and remain rock bottom of the table and are at real risk of relegation.
After the game, Gunners fans chanted: “You’re rich but you’re f****** s***.”
And now, Newcastle boss Howe has responded directly to the jeers.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang slammed
Gunners captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be one of the few Arsenal players to come out of the Newcastle game disappointed with how things went.
When presented with a brilliant opportunity in the first half the Arsenal captain found himself tapping against the outside of the post from point-blank range when it appeared easier to score.
The miss means Aubameyang has now gone four games without a goal for his club and meant the teams went into halftime with the scores still deadlocked at 0-0.
And Gunners legend Ian Wright reserved some very strong words for the striker following the shocking miss.
