Arsenal fans won’t be out of place if they ask if the captaincy curse is back with what has been happening to club skipper Pierre-EmerickAubameyang in the past two weeks. The Gabonese international has been a shadow of himself in the Gunners team for the majority of this season though things picked up at the turn of the year but that improvement in form is now a thing of the past judging by the events of the last two weeks. Aubameyang has largely struggled to score the goals for the Gunners since the signing of his new contract last summer. He had one year left on his then Arsenal deal before the club handed him a two-year extension to make it three more years for him at the club. In addition, the player was given a pay rise of £250,000 weekly that could rise to £350,000 depending on add-ons.

William Gallas has criticized Chelsea’s England international full-back Reece James, insisting that the young defender needs to start learning to cover up for his center-backs if he really has the intention of helping the team. Gallas was making reference to the 2-0 loss Chelsea suffered in the Premier League back in January, highlighting that Reece James exposed the central defenders by placing too much focus on moving forward.
The 2-0 loss was Chelsea’s sixth of the Premier League campaign on a frustrating evening when Gallas believes that the two goals could have been kept out if there was more defensive organization from the Blues. The opening goal was conceded from a corner that was not defended properly while the second goal was a punishment for yet another defensive error.

Arsenal are on the verge of closing a management deal with Mikel Arteta of Manchester City but former Gunner defender says he would pick Patrice Vieira above every other pretended that is giving off the vibe of a no-nonsense coach just to land the job at the Emirates dugout.
Gallas maintained that it is understandable to see Freddie Ljungberg struggle over something as simple as ensuring the Gunners are not worse off as they were under Unai Emery. For the former Chelsea man, Freddie’s lack of experience was always going to work against him which is the reason why giving Arteta the job is as bizzare as they come given that the Spaniard has just about the same experience as the current caretaker.
