Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry remains unsure whether the signing of a top-class centre forward like Robert Lewandowski will improve things at Arsenal.
As each season goes by, Arsenal always seems to manage snatching a top 4 spot in the Premier League but are just not able to actually push through and make that final charge for the 1rst place of the English league and this current season is no different as Arsenal has sealed 64 points from the opening 35 league games that have been played so far. Leicester City is well on their way of making history as they are only a few points away from becoming the new champions of England.
Newcastle United has entered a critical week when they face an upcoming clash with Norwich.
With Rafa Benitez heads the club, United is trying to step up their training. There are critical questions being considered like whom plays left back in the game with Norwich. Dummett having hamstring issues might become a concern. Jetro Willems might be picked up by Man City as this season’s deals come to an end.
Mesut Ozil has confirmed that he has no interest in breaking Thierry Henry’s record of 20 assists in a Premier league season.
He says were winning the league title has more precedence to this record. Ozil is the club’s record signing after having cost an incredible £ 42.5 million following his move from Real Madrid a few years ago. After his initial struggles at the Emirates stadium, Ozil is starting to make a huge impact in the Arsenal team whenever he steps on the pitch. This impact most often occurs in an indirect fashion with Ozil playing a part in each goal.
The 2015-16 league campaign is fast turning out into one of the most intense in recent memory with four teams clearly involved in the title race.
Even Manchester United in the fifth spot can be considered as title challengers given the quality of the players and not a lot of difference from the top of the table. The top four has teams like Leicester City and Tottenham making headlines along with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City. While the latter two are instantly recognisable in this segment, the same cannot be said of Leicester and Tottenham.
Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry reckons that international compatriot Anthony Martial has been unable to hit the heights at Manchester United since he has been played out wide more often than not.
The 20-year-old came to the Premier League in the summer for a base fee of £ 36 million, which could rise to be on £ 50 million depending on performances. He is seen as one of the most talented youngsters in world football and someone with the potential to surpass Henry in terms of this achievements for the French national team.
Lionel Messi recently returned from a few months on the sidelines to make a minor impact in the El Clasico against Real Madrid on Saturday.
He was not made to wait any longer for a start after manager Luis Enrique gave him the opportunity against Roma in the Champions League. Messi did what he does best – scoring goals – without making it look very difficult indeed.
Manchester United’s new summer signing Anthony Martial received praise from none other than Thierry Henry for his impressive debut against Liverpool.
Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry says that Liverpool midfielder Raheem Sterling should not listen to the bad advice and try and force a move away from the Merseyside club.
After weeks of speculation about his future, Sterling is thought to have confirmed his decision to leave Liverpool with immediate effect. He has two years left on his contract, but interest from Manchester City and Chelsea could force Liverpool into selling the player for around £ 40 million. At just 20 years of age, Sterling is the start of his career.
Frenchman Olivier Giroud has been one of Premier League’s silent assassins in the last few months. He has slowly become one of leading goal scorer of the Premier League despite having missed much of the action during the early part of the campaign.
When Giroud was on the sidelines, almost all the attention was on summer signing Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean was brought to the Emirates stadium for £ 35 million and he proved to be the missing link in the jigsaw.
