Arsenal

Arsenal have played in the top division of English football since 1913, which is the longest unbroken run in the history of English football. Arsenal are the only team to have finished a Premier League season undefeated (2003/04).

 

  • Stadium: Emirates Stadium  
  • Stadium Capacity: 59,867
  • Location: North London
  • Founded: 1886
  • Nickname: The Gunners
  • Manager: Mikel Arteta
  • Kit: Red shirts with white sleeves and white shorts

Arsenal was formed in 1886 and was the first club from the south of England to join the Football League in 1893. Arsenal hold the record for the longest unbroken record in the top division of football. The Gunners have played at the top level since 1913. Here are some of the highlights:

  • First Division Champions: 13 times 
  • FA Cup Winners: 14 times (a record)
  • League Cup Winners: 1986/87 & 1992/93
  • UEFA Cup Winners: 1993/94
  • Premier League best finish: Winners in 1997/98, 2001/02 & 2003/04

Arsenal have won the FA Cup more times than any other club.

The Manager

Mikel Arteta took over from Unai Emery in December 2019 and won the FA Cup in his first season. Arteta was the assistant manager at Manchester City before taking over at the Emirates. The Spaniard is an ex-Arsenal player who made over 100 appearances for the club and won the FA Cup  twice as a player. Arteta also made over 150 appearances for Everton in a decade long Premier League playing career.Mikel Arteta has won the FA Cup as Arsenal manager and an Arsenal player.

Three to Watch

The Arsenal squad is full of international talent from Bukayo Saka (England) in defence to Thomas Partey (Ghana) in midfield and Nicolas Pepe (France) in attack. Here are three players to watch out for in the Premier League this season:

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Arsenal paid Borussia Dortmund a club record fee for Aubameyang in January 2018. The striker from Gabon is one of the world’s top forwards and has explosive pace. He was African Player of the Year in 2015.

Aubameyang is one of the world's top forwards.

Alexandre Lacazette

Lacazette is another exciting forward. Arsenal signed him from Lyon in France for a then club-record fee. The French striker is fast, has great dribbling skills and is good with both feet.

Alexandre Lacazette plays up front for Arsenal.

Kieran Tierney

Tierney has been at Arsenal since 2019 when he moved from Celtic in Scotland in a record transfer for a Scottish player. Tierney normally plays left-back but can also play as a central defender. After an injury-hit 2020/21 season, Arsenal fans will be hoping one of the most exciting Premier League defenders stays injury-free this season. 

Kieran Tierney plays for Arsenal and Scotland.

Prediction 2021/22: 6th

Arsenal will be looking to break back into the top four and claim Champions League football next season, but it may be another year of consolidation. With many new players, it could be difficult for Arsenal to find enough consistency to win the Premier League. However, with the players they have, they will hope for a good run in one of the domestic cup competitions.

Though Arsenal is chasing the title this year, it will be hard to eliminate them from the FA Cup race. They can do it third time in a row, it is not impossible. But it is hard, there's no doubt about it.

I like Arsenal because has a sense of playing different from all others teams. Even they are not ready to win a title and the situation on Champions League stage is not the best still their game give me impressions. Arsenal has the best striker on Premier like Giroud, Sanchez, Chamberlein or Walcott and I can't make separation but can say that walcott is my favourite player because play well and is talented
I have seen last years against Bayern Munchen.
For this year my prediction is for a runner-up on Premier League but not on the top 16 teams on Champions League

This phrase is used to describe one style of football a manager uses. Arsene Wenger at Arsenal is often described to follow a 'purist approach' as he believes in an attacking, passing game that is played on the ground. Also, he doesn't change his style depending on the opposition. Other famous manager such as Jose Mourinho take a more 'pragmatist approach' which means they often change their style of play and tactics, according to the opposition.
