Arsenal

Arsenal club badge

Arsenal is one of the most popular teams in English football and one of the most successful football teams in English football history. Arsenal's nickname is 'the Gunners' and their club badge has a cannon on it. An 'arsenal' is a place where guns and weapons are stored. Arsenal football club was founded in 1886 by workers from the Royal Arsenal in London which is where the club's name and nickname come from. 

Arsenal play in the Emirates Stadium in London. The Emirates Stadium is one of the biggest in the Premier League with a capacity of 60,335 and on a match day, the seats sell out!

A young fan shows off his scarf.

Arsenal wear red shirts and white shorts and socks when they are at home. Their away kit is yellow and dark grey. 

Arsenal have won League titles, FA Cups, League Cups and European trophies. Since the start of the Premier League, Arsenal have won titles in 1998, 2002 and 2004. Only Manchester United and Liverpool have won more league titles than Arsenal. They also reached a Champions League final, but lost 2-1 against Barcelona, in 2006. Arsenal have played in the top division, without relegation, for longer than any other team. Arsenal are also the only team to play a full Premier League season without losing (2003-04), and are only the second team to play a full season without defeat in the history of top division, English football (the other team was Preston in 1888-89!)

Arsene Wenger joined Arsenal in 1996 and now that Alex Ferguson has retired is the longest-serving manager in the Premier League.

Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger

Wenger has won 3 Premier League titles, 6 FA Cups and reached 2 European finals with Arsenal. Many people see Arsene Wenger’s teams as having a purist approach with an emphasis on attack and teams that always try to entertain. In March 2014, Wenger took charge of his 1000th game with Arsenal, only Ferguson has managed more Premier League games.

"I don’t look at the passport of people but at their quality and their attitude." Arsene Wenger

Although Arsenal’s home games at the Emirates Stadium sell out, only a tiny proportion of Arsenal supporters ever go to an Arsenal game. This is because the club has about 27 million fans around the world. There are supporters groups everywhere from Liberia to Hong Kong.

Mohamed Elneny plays in midfield for Arsenal.

In 2015/16, Arsenal finished 2nd in the Premier League, and qualified for the Champions League for the 19th consecutive season. They also won the FA Cup for the second year in a row, when they beat Aston Villa 4-0 in the FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium. ‘The Gunners’ top scorer was French international Olivier Giroud, with 16 goals. With players like Alex Sanchez, Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil, and Giroud, Arsenal have a strong attacking team. They also have one of the Premier League's best ever goalkeepers in Petr Cech, but it might be the signing of Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany that gets them challenging at the top of the table this season. Arsenal have had difficulties in defensive midfield for a few seasons and maybe Xhaka, a Swiss international, will help in the middle of the pitch.

Prediction 2016/17: 6th

Key player: Alexis Sanchez

Did you know....?

At the end of the 2003-04 season, Arsenal became known as, ‘The Invincibles’ because they hadn't lost a single game!

I have been loving Arsenal since 2000, over 2 decades. Because of their playing style, attacking, passing, give chance to junior players frequently. And also their Manager Wenger, he is not only a football manager but also a good business man. He can manage well both footballers and financial.
One of my favourite player is Theory Henry, the legend of Gunner. I like his football skill and leadership.
I have so many points to like Arsenal. I believe that I will be always a fan of Gunner even they win a title or not.

Hi Nouri

Welcome to Premier Skills English! We hope you enjoy the website.

Mesut Ozil is a superb player. He played for the first time this season on Saturday and scored a goal. Yacine Brahimi is a fantastic player and would be a great signing for a Premier League club. I've also heard that Islam Slimani might arrive in the Premier League this week from Sporting Lisbon. Do you know him?

Welcome to Premier Skills English, Markoni!

Arsenal are looking like they will challenge for the title this season with City, Liverpool and Chelsea. Olivier Giroud is a great player but is on the bench a lot this season. Arsene Wenger seems to prefer to play Alexis Sanchez as the main striker.
