Wenger's Calculation

Arsene Wenger feels the Premier League will be won with a points tally of around 82 this season - can Arsenal keep the pace or will they have to settle for another cup?

Chew on that! Suarez omitted from Ballon d'Or shortlist

As you’d expect, both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have made Fifa’s Ballon d’Or shortlist but, surprisingly, there is no place for Luis Suarez.

The Uruguay international led the way with his sublime performances for Liverpool last season but his 31 Premier League goals were apparently not enough to warrant a spot in the 23-man list.

Wenger unveils new Arsenal signing

Mesut Ozil became the latest Arsenal star to pick up an injury this season as the Gunners’ woes – and casualty list – continue to grow.

The Germany international is unlikely to play again until 2015 after being ruled out for 10 to 12 weeks with a partial knee ligament tear suffered against Chelsea.

Ozil’s setback means he joins, among others, Olivier Giroud, Mathieu Debuchy, Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey on a treatment table that might need reinforcing.

Arsene Wenger has previously admitted being concerned by his side’s bad injury luck, and had appointed a new fitness guru, Shad Forsythe, in the summer, and will surely be keeping his fit players wrapped in cotton wool from now on.

Arsenal have also been given a scare by the news that Laurent Koscielny has withdrawn from the France squad, with the centre-back continuing to nurse a long-standing Achilles problem.

Arsenal ripped apart in Dortmund

Jurgen Klopp finally recorded a victory over Arsene Wenger on home soil as he watched his side dismantle Arsenal 2-0 in their Champions League group stage encounter on Tuesday night.

The scoreline rather flattered the Gunners - BVB skipper Sebastian Kehl claimed afterwards that they could have scored four goals - with the Bundesliga outfit racking up an astonishing 23 shots on goal, the most any side managed as Europe's premier club competition returned.

Arsenal were on the backfoot from the first whistle to the last, with calamitous defending gifting a largely wasteful Dortmund plenty of opportunities.

The pace and directness of Ciro Immobile and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang caused the north Londoners serious problems, while Danny Welbeck's wayward finishing, Mesut Ozil's disappearing act and Lukas Podolski's lost shin pads all contributed to an awful night for Arsene Wenger.

Wenger sees red after Ramsey dismissal

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was furious after his side's 0-0 draw with Besiktas in the Champions League, decrying the decision to send midfielder Aaron Ramsey off.

The Frenchman unleashed his inner John McEnroe after the dismissal, claiming the Welshman's second yellow card was "just not serious".

Ramsey was adjudged to have pulled back Oguzhan Ozyakup in the 80th minute, and will now miss the second leg at Emirates Stadium next week, but Wenger is adamant it was a poor decision.

"Both yellow cards for Aaron Ramsey are unbelievable," fumed the Arsenal boss. "When you see the fouls they have made today it's not serious. Just not serious."

Sour grapes for Nasri

Samir Nasri further endeared himself to Arsenal fans prior to Manchester City's Community Shield clash with the Gunners on Sunday.

"I just think the abuse I get is stupid," he said. "I'm not an Arsenal fan, I am not from London. To be honest we are players and we are just looking at what are the best interests for us and our careers.

"When Manchester City came for me it was the best choice to come here. Since coming to City I have won ­trophies and I have a better life so I am really happy about everything.

"If the fans can't move on it's too bad. I am not trying to have a problem with that. They do what they have to do and they love their club.

"They see that as a treason or that I betrayed them but it's not that."

Nasri was met with boos from the Arsenal faithful at Wembley and it was the Gunners who had the last laugh, coming out on top with a comfortable 3-0 win.

Wheels beginning to fall off Arsenal bandwagon

Arsenal’s season took a turn for the worse on Tuesday as the Premier League leaders were held to a 2-2 draw at Southampton.

The result means Arsene Wenger’s men could be knocked off top spot should Manchester City beat Tottenham on Wednesday.

However, there was worse to follow with news that midfielder Aaron Ramsey, so often the star of the show for the Gunners this season, would be out for another four to six weeks through injury.

Ramsey the dragon fires up Arsenal

Aaron Ramsey struck twice on his return to Cardiff City, the club where he began his career, as Arsenal increased their lead at the top of the Premier League table with a 3-0 win in the Welsh capital.

The 22-year-old joined the Bluebirds at the age of eight, rising up the club's ranks before earning a £5 million move to north London in 2008, and has since established himself as a regular for Wales, who are nicknamed 'the Dragons'.

Despite his ties to Cardiff, Ramsey did not let up as his hot streak in front of goal continued with a fine double. The first was a well executed header, the second a powerful finish to wrap up the victory.

Out of respect for the club that nurtured his development, Ramsey opted not to celebrate as he brought his tally for the season up to 13 goals, underlining his status as the Premier League's most in-form player.

Arsenal rock Dortmund & hit the perfect note

It had been billed as the clash between Jurgen Klopp's heavy metal brand of football and Arsene Wenger's orchestra but when it was all said and done only one team was left singing the blues.

Aaron Ramsey's 11th goal of a superb campaign gave the Gunners a marvellous 1-0 win at Signal Iduna Park on Wednesday night, pushing Arsene Wenger's side to the summit of their Champions League group.

Jurgen's Kloppstars host Wenger's orchestra

Borussia Dortmund host Arsenal in the Champions League on Wednesday night with both sides looking to gain an advantage in a hugely competitive group.

But will the 80,000 supporters in the Signal Iduna Park be taking in a football match or a battle of the bands?

Jurgen Klopp compared the two club's contrasting styles as he spoke about Wenger. "He likes having the ball, playing football, passes... it’s like an orchestra," Klopp said, miming playing a violin.

"But it is a silent song. I like heavy metal more. I always want it loud."

No matter the football on show, one thing you can be certain of in a raucous Westfalenstadion is noise.

Walcott left out of Arsenal's future five

Arsenal made a show of announcing new contracts for five of their brightest young talents on Wednesday - but the one who everyone was waiting for was not among them.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, Kieran Gibbs and Carl Jenkinson all put pen to paper on bumper five-year deals at Emirates Stadium, as Goal.com had exclusively revealed on Monday.

But Theo Walcott, whose current agreement is set to expire in the summer, has long been at loggerheads with the club over an extension, with his desire to play as a centre-forward proving a serious obstacle.
