Arsenal have ended a long wait to equal a Premier League record after their latest win over Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.

The Gunners beat Newcastle United 2-0 to record a 10th successive Premier League win at home for the first time since the North Londoners’ first title-winning season in the competition.

Arsenal have won 10 games in a row for the first time since the 1997/98 season.

Unai Emery and his players knew that any form of win would lift them above Manchester United and North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur on the table.

Arsenal thought they had taken the lead through stand-in captain Aaron Ramsey inside fifteen minutes only for centre referee Anthony Taylor to disallow the goal after Gunners defender Sokratis Papasthathopoulos was adjudged to have fouled Florian LeJeune in the buildup.

Ramsey was not to be denied his goal on the half-hour mark after he edged his side into the lead with a fine finish inside the Newcastle United box.

Arsenal added a second goal in the last ten minutes through Alexandre Lacazette as they wrapped up an easy win to take them to third place on the Premier League table with 63 points after 31 games this season.

Arsenal fans have pelted club manager Unai Emery with abuse on his latest online post which celebrated Spanish football legend David Villa who recently announced his retirement from football.

The Gunners’ Faithfuls told the manager to retire alongside David Villa whom he coached while he was at Spanish La Liga giants Valencia.

Unai Emery is under serious pressure to hang on to his job as the Arsenal manager after leading the North Londoners to their worst start in the league for over three decades.

The last win in the Premier League came against Bournemouth at home last month as David Luiz scored the only goal of the game in the first ten minutes to hand the Gunners a 1-0 win over the Cherries.

In addition, Arsenal are without a victory in each of the last five games in all competitions including the 2-0 league defeat at Leicester City on Saturday.

riyad mahrez

Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez has revealed how he came close to joining Arsenal in 2016.

The Algerian international star talked about his close transfer to Arsenal in his latest interview with France Football as he narrated how Leicester City blocked the move against his wish.

Riyad Mahrez had just helped Leicester City to a miraculous title triumph in the Premier League during the 2015/16 season and was keen to leave the Foxes for a bigger club like Arsenal only for the Leicester City officials to kick against the transfer.

According to him, he wasted two years of his productive football life at Leicester City when he could have spent it at a bigger club.

Premier League champions Manchester City were the next big club to try and whisk Riyad Mahrez away from Leicester City.

The Citizens initially met resistance in January 2018 before their endeavor finally paid off last summer when he joined Manchester City from Leicester City for a then club-record fee of £60m and that has been slightly eclipsed by the Rodri transfer from Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid to Manchester City this summer.

Rodri joined Manchester City in a deal worth £62m thus making the transfer the new record.

Granit Xhaka

Former Arsenal striker Granit Xhaka could leave the club for Italy when the winter transfer window reopens in a few weeks’ time as it looks like the Swiss international star is keen to leave the North Londoners after his clash with fans last month.

Granit Xhaka has not played the last four Arsenal games in all competitions since his foul-mouthed rant towards the Arsenal fans during the league game with Crystal Palace in the London Derby clash played at the Emirates Stadium.

Swiss media outlet RSI claimed that Granit Xhaka has been spotted househunting in Milan and that has fuelled the possibility of a move to seven-time European champions AC Milan.

He has earlier been linked with Inter Milan in the summer though it seems the latest news is about AC Milan whose chief executive Ivan Gazidis was on the payroll at Arsenal before he moved to Italy.

Granit Xhaka was dropped as the Arsenal captain earlier this month by manager Unai Emery due to his misdemeanor last month during the league game with Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium.

He reacted to chorus of jeers and boos from fans during the game while being substituted and that has led to his no-show at the club.

AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie is closing in on a move to Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers according to the newest reports from the British media.

Franck Kessie is in his third season at seven-time champions AC Milan after joining the Rossoneri from fellow Italian Serie A outfit Atalanta.

According to Birmingham Mail, Wolves are edging closer to a January transfer for Frank Kessie.

It was revealed that the earlier reports claimed that the Midlands club had agreed on a move for the Ivorian international star since the summer but that is wide off the mark.

Franck Kessie had previously been linked with the London duo of Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Ivorian midfielder was a transfer target for the two London clubs in the summer though the Blues were unable to make any transfer due to the FIFA ban.

Chelsea were handed a transfer ban for two windows after they were deemed to have breached rules about signing players under the age of 18 by world football’s governing body FIFA.

The West Londoners appealed to FIFA over the ruling but their appeal was thrown out thereby prompting them to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) with the ruling expected later this month.
