We moved one place to third on the Premier League table but we still in nine points behind Chelsea who play Tottenham in their next game.
As far as the transfers are concerned, we are linked with yet another defensive midfielder in the form of Sevilla star Steven N’Zonzi…
Given the number of defensive midfielders at Arsenal, this report can be easily dismissed as one of those rumours unless we are linked with a youngster who will join the academy.
Francis Coquelin has been impressive and not to forget, the Gunners splashed heavy cash to sign Swiss international Granit Xhaka in the summer transfer window. Therefore, signing another defensive midfielder makes little sense.
The former Stoke City player has been in top form for Sevilla who are just a point behind champions Barca and four points behind league leaders Real Madrid (game in hand).
