    ARSENAL star Granit Xhaka is thriving in his new position under Mikel Arteta - despite boasting the lowest tackle stats of his career so far this season.

    NIGERIA have failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time in 16 years after being beaten by Ghana on away goals. Following a drab goalless draw in the first leg, Nigeria were looking to close the tie out in front of their home fans. 1Partey's first half strike sent Ghana through to the World Cup finalsCredit: Getty But it was Ghana who took the lead in the 10th minute through Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey. He tried a long range effort and it squirmed under the despairing dive of Francis Uzoho. Nigeria were level midway through the first half when Watford defender William Troost-Ekong dispatched a penalty. But Ghana held on to claim the tie on away goals and advance to the finals in Qatar later this year. More to follow. Most read in Premier LeagueVICTORY IN SIGHT?

    JAMIE CARRAGHER has praised Mikel Arteta's midfield tweak at Arsenal following their dazzling display against Leicester. The Gunners leapfrogged Manchester United back into the top four on Sunday after easing to a 2-0 victory at the Emirates. 3Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has been full of praise for Arsenal boss Mikel ArtetaCredit: Sky Sports 3Arsenal have won their last five Premier League games to move back into the top fourCredit: Rex Arteta's side have now won nine out of their last 11 Premier League games - winning their last five matches since drawing 0-0 to Burnley on January 23. In that period, they have conceded just seven goals thanks to the heroics of goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale and the formidable centre-back pairing of Ben White and Gabriel. Foxes boss Brenan Rodgers labelled Ramsdale as England's best goalkeeper following his stunning save to keep out Harvey Barnes' header. But despite their impressive defence, Carragher believes it is in midfield where Arsenal are winning games.

    LONDON (AP) — Arsenal maintained its grip on fourth place in the Premier League thanks to a 2-0 win over Leicester on Sunday, with the Gunners enjoying their best run of the season. Thomas Party netted early and Alexandre Lacazette added a second-half penalty as Arsenal secured its fifth straight league win. It kept Arteta’s team one point above fifth-place Manchester United and with three games in hand. Leicester’s hopes of securing a European place are quickly fading, though, with the team’s weakness from set pieces proving costly again. Partey headed in the opener in the 11th minute after shaking off a defender to meet Gabriel Martinelli’s corner at the near post. The second goal resulted from a free kick into the area. Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel saved the initial effort from Ben White but Partey’s header from the rebound glanced off the outstretched hand of Caglar Soyuncu before being cleared off the line. After a lengthy VAR review, referee Anthony Taylor watched the incident on a pitchside monitor before awarding a penalty for handball. Lacazette fired his spot kick...
    ARSENAL have moved back into fourth spot after beating Leicester 2-0 to rack up five consecutive Premier League victories.

    ARSENAL'S Champions League hopes took a major boost with three precious points against top-four rivals Wolves.

Aaron Ramsdale - 5 Got away with one early on, slow to react before the flag went up against Romain Saiss who beat the goalkeeper to the ball and bundled in.

    ARSENAL broke their duck but then had to cling on for victory against Wolves at Molineux. The visitors finally scored for the first time since New Year's Day courtesy of centre-back Gabriel. 1Gabriel poked home from a corner for Arsenal's second goal of 2022Credit: Richard Pelham / The Sun But they were put under relentless second-half pressure after another of Arsenal's Gabriels - this time Martinelli - was given his marching orders.

    ARSENAL return to Premier League action on Thursday following the winter break as they travel to Wolves. Mikel Arteta's side, who currently sit in sixth place, are without a win in five games in all competitions and have not played since they were held to a goalless draw by Burnley on January 23. 3How Arsenal are likely to line up against Wolves on Thursday They resume their campaign with a couple of injury concerns, most notably right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu who is still struggling with a calf problem he originally picked up back in December. Cedric Soares is also a worry, but Arteta will be hoping one of the pair can start the game. Speaking in his press conference ahead of the clash, Arteta was asked about Tomiyasu's fitness. To which he responded: "He's there. He had a recurring injury in the same place so we have to be careful with him but he's been training hard. "Let's see if he's available or not." But the Spanish manager will welcome back Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey as the return from...
    While it certainly appears that Arsenal striker target Dusan Vlahovic has played the Gunners to get a move to Juventus, there may be a slight positive. One by-product might be that Mikel Arteta can now land midfield target Arthur Melo, as the Italian giants will need cash. 3Arthur is on Arsenal's radarCredit: Getty Arsenal have been heavily linked with the ex-Barcelona midfielder for most of the window, and as a loan deal now seems quite possible, I wanted to look at why the deal makes sense. The touted move has had a mixed reaction from the Arsenal fanbase, particularly if Juventus insist on an 18-month loan, rather than a deal to the end of this season. Fans are concerned, especially after recent loans such as Denis Suarez and Dani Ceballos, have not worked out. However, in the case of Arthur, it is perhaps simply that a managerial change has seen him drop down the midfield pecking order at Juve, and that Arteta believes he can rejuvenate the player that played so well for Barcelona. From the player’s...
    ARSENAL will host Burnley while lacking little midfield reinforcements. Usual pairing Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey are both suspended - following red cards in separate Carabao Cup semi-final games against Liverpool. 2How Arsenal could line up against Burnley The first came for Xhaka leaving Arsenal to hold on for over an hour with ten men in the first leg. But Partey was shown red while Liverpool were 2-0 up at the Emirates and already looking ahead to the final. It will likely mean again playing Sambi Lokonga as a lone holding midfielder and switching the Gunners preferred 4-2-3-1 formation to 4-1-4-1 or 4-3-3. Lokonga started in the deep-lying role in the second leg against Liverpool with Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe either side in advanced roles. Mohamed Elneny - who would have been an option to also play in midfield - is still on international duty with Egypt at the Africa Cup of Nations. And with a lack of alternate options the midfield three - who all started against Liverpool - are...
    (CNN)On Wednesday, the EnglishFootball Association (FA) announced that they were looking into a yellow card received by an Arsenal player following reports of suspicious betting patterns. Yellow isn't the only type of card proving problematic for Arsenal at the moment.Thomas Partey's red card in Thursday's Carabao Cup semifinal defeat to Liverpool was the team's 14th since manager Mikel Arteta took charge of the club in December 2019 -- six more than any other team in the Premier League during the same period.The context of Partey's dismissal made for even grimmer reading.

    THOMAS PARTEY has apologised to Arsenal fans for getting sent off in just 15 minutes against Liverpool. The Ghana midfielder came off the bench in the 74th minute of the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg. 2Thomas Partey was sent off in Arsenal's defeat by Liverpool on Thursday nightCredit: AFP 2 But he picked up two bookings in just three minutes and was given his marching orders in the dying moments of the 2-0 defeat. Partey woke up in Cameroon on Thursday and dashed to London to play in the second leg. But his whirlwind day ended with being shown a red card and Arsenal having been dumped out of the Carabao Cup. Partey wrote on Instagram: "Am responsible for anything that happened and will take all the critiques, I should be more intelligent not to get in a challenge already booked but this is my personality I like to fight for every ball.

    MIKEL ARTETA insists Arsenal need to "eradicate" their disciplinary issues on the pitch following Thomas Partey's red card against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup. The Gunners were eliminated from the competition's semi-finals after losing 2-0 to the Reds in the second leg at the Emirates and missed out on a Wembley showdown against Chelsea in the final. 2Arsenal star Thomas Partey was sent off against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup's second legCredit: Alamy 2Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta insists the team's woeful disciplinary record needs to come to an endCredit: Alamy The north Londoners saw Partey returning to action just 48 hours after Ghana's shock elimination from the Africa Cup of Nations' group stage in Cameroon. The midfielder came on as a substitute in the second half, shortly before Diogo Jota completed his brace, and collected two yellow cards in the space of just three minutes. Arsenal manager Arteta was frustrated after full-time and insists the team's recent disciplinary run needs to come to an end.

    THOMAS PARTEY'S sending off in Arsenal's Carabao Cup semi-final defeat to Liverpool was a THIRD red card for the Gunners this year, and it's only January. Partey was shown a second yellow card just three minutes after his first, as Diogo Jota's double ended Arsenal's pursuit of silverware for the 2021/22 season. 3Partey's dismissal was a third in the space of 20 days for ArsenalCredit: Reuters 3Xhaka was sent off in the first leg against Liverpool last weekCredit: Reuters 3Gabriel was sent for an early shower on New Year's Day, which was the start of a miserable 2022 so farCredit: Getty It means Arsenal have now been shown three times as many red cards as they have scored goals in 2022. The stat makes for grim reading for Gunners fans, with Bukayo Saka's goal in the game against Manchester City on New Year's Day the only time Mikel Arteta's side have found the back of the net this calendar year. By contrast they've seen red on three occasions already. Gabriel was sent off for two...
    THOMAS PARTEY added to a miserable week after getting sent off in Arsenal's 2-0 defeat to Liverpool. The midfielder, 28, was brought on as a late substitute but lasted just 15 minutes.

It added insult to injury for The Gunners and was a rather fitting way for Partey's week to end. Just two days ago Partey was knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations after Ghana lost to Comores, finishing bottom of their group. Arsenal fans thought that was good news as it meant Partey would not have missed a single Premier League game - but he will now sit out the Burnley match on Sunday through suspension. Partey woke up in Cameroon on Thursday and landed in London just seven hours before kick-off. But he failed to help...
