OZIL, LACAZETTE AND OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN HAVING FUN ON TOUR

Arsenal trio of MesutOzil, Alexandre Lacazette and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were pictured having fun at their ongoing pre-season training in Shanghai.


The players were Kung-Fu fighting as a song played in the background.

The team was at a fan party where they were to unwind before the next season resumes. The trio put up a dance classic with fans and teammates cheering them on. They had gathered at the Manderin Oriental Hotel as part of the pre-season tour in China – one half of the pre-season plans aside Australia.

Arsenal are set to face German champs Bayern Munich on Wednesday while they battle local rivals Chelsea on Saturday.

The team has been bonding as calm filters in. MesutOzil is likely to agree a deal with the north London side while ending the long drawn speculations that have trailed his next move. After the pre-season tour, the World Cup winner is expected to put pen to paper. Continue reading OZIL, LACAZETTE AND OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN HAVING FUN ON TOUR

Ranieri is certain that next season will be even harder

Leicester City’s historic Premier League winning season is something that took everyone by surprise. Even the own supporters and players of the club weren’t expecting to rise above every other club in the English League and become the new champions of England but it happened.


Claudio Ranieri was one of the main figures behind this extraordinary season and the Italian coach himself has stated it still baffles him as to how exactly his team was able to overcome everything in their path and win their first Premier League title in the history of the club.

When the 64 year old coach was asked about his thoughts of the previous season as well as the upcoming one, the Italian manager replied by saying:

“At the beginning our goal was to be safe. Slowly, the team got confidence, it was a very, very amazing performance, match by match, day by day, they work so hard and we improved a lot…

I think one of our keys was to be consistent during all the season. Believe in yourself without thinking winning, losing, drawing, it wasn’t important. It was important to fight every match.”

Manchester United and Chelsea are the only clubs in the history of the Premier League that have been able to successively win the top tier English League. Continue reading Ranieri is certain that next season will be even harder

Barcelona interested in Mesut Ozil

Barcelona might be interested in signing Mesut Ozil in the summer with the Spanish club preparing a player and money deal. There is a special clause in Ozil contract that specifies that Real Madrid has the first refusal in case he is sold to a rival Spanish club. So as to circumvent this clause, Barcelona will try to offer players in exchange of Ozil.

The three players that will be offered to Arsenal are ArdaTuran, Sandro Ramirez and Munir El Haddadi and in fairness will not be a big upgrade on players Arsenal currently has. If ever, Ozil is going to be sold it is likely that Wenger will be interested in a transfer fee above the £42.5million that Arsenal paid to Real Madrid in 2013.

Mesut Ozil has made 110 appearances so far for the Gunners and has scored 19 goals. However, Ozil should not be judged by the number of goals he scored but rather on the number of assists, and chances created. And it is this creativity that Barcelona will want to bring to the Nou Camp. And with players such as Messi, Suarez and Neymar up front, a team consisting of Ozil behind these forwards can be difficult to stop.

MesutOzil created 10 chances but 0 goals were scored

MesutOzil has undoubtedly been one of the main figures of Arsenal in this season. The German has provided his teammates with 16 assists which is more than anyone else in the entire Premier League and the German was once again in sublime form during Arsenal’s goal-less draw against Southampton.

Arsenal hosted Southampton at the Emirates Stadium and even though Ozil created 10 goal-scoring chances, it wasn’t enough for his teammates to capitalize as the match finalized without any goals for either side.

Southampton’s Fraser Forster was on fire in this match as the English goal-keeper made a number of brilliant saves which kept his team from falling behind in the scoreboard but these are the kind of matches that Arsenal have to win if they want to continue charging for the top spot of the Premier League.
