Meanwhile, there is some transfer news and Graeme Souness decided to take time off from his Paul Pogba criticism to slam Mesut Ozil.

GUNNING FOR DEM

THE GUNNERS will be on red alert to snap up Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele.

The Frenchman has been told he can leave the Catalan side after struggling to settle since his 2017 move – but Arsenal will have to move quickly with Chelsea and Liverpool also interested.

CARL WHO?

CARL JENKINSON could be set for his first Arsenal start in two years as the Gunners suffer further injury setbacks.

Hector Bellerin has been forced out of their Liverpool clash and with Stephan Lichtsteiner already covering at left-back, Jenkinson could return firstly against Blackpool in the Carabao Cup.

FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS

HECTOR BELLERIN faces a battle to be fit for Arsenal's big game against Liverpool next weekend.

The Gunners defender posted on Instagram saying "already trying my best to come back asap".

TWEET DREAMS

MESUT OZIL has taken the unusual step of staying silent on social media in the wake of his tantrum during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

The German playmaker made it clear he was not happy after being subbed off the field during Sunday’s clash at Selhurst Park.

NOT AGAIN

WILFRIED ZAHA has hit back at critics who accused him of diving for the second game in a row with a video of Granit Xhaka admitting to his foul.

The Crystal Palace winger won a penalty for his side with just six minutes of the Saturday clash with Arsenal remaining.

UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT

ARSENAL are looking to sign Roma star Cengiz Under, but may have to wait until the summer.

The Turkey international had been setting Serie A alight with some top performances and can play winger or striker.

ABSOLUTE MES

MESUT OZIL has been blasted by Graeme Souness for lacking courage and passion for Arsenal.

The Gunners could only muster a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace – with the German showing his frustrations at being substituted.

EMERGENCY SERVICE

ARSENAL will only make emergency January transfers following their strong start to the season.

The club Director of Football Raul Sanllehi says he is not keen to dip into the market again until summer.

RAM RAID

Aaron Ramsey has become the latest victim of a secret wage pact between Europe’s elite clubs.

Many are capping top wages, which is why Ramsey saw a contract offer withdrawn by the club.

The Hammers are hoping to use defender Fabian Balbuena as bait for the midfield ace.
