Although there was a fair amount of transfer guff around on Sunday, it was all overshadowed by Arsenal’s rather embarrassing 4-3 loss to Liverpool at the Emirates.
Let’s start with the slightly less humiliating stuff shall we? The gossip (never thought I’d say that).
The Gunners are still being linked with a move for Lewandowski. For €70m. Yeah right. Here’s why it won’t happen – although you shouldn’t really need telling!
Bayern Munich have reportedly made signing Mesut Ozil a priority; Arsenal have been asked to pay a much larger amount than was originally anticipated for our pal Mustafi; we’ve remembered Brozovic exists again; while Gnabry single-handedly wins the Olympic football for Germany, scoring his sixth goal in four appearances, we’re in talks over a loan move to Hertha BSC and Inter Milan apparently want Alexis for €80m… no, just no.
We took a look at the save, which has landed Ospina with a nomination for ‘save of the season’. Take a look at the goal and how to vote here.
Per Mertesacker was named captain this season and Jack Wilshere, along with the boss, gave some rather strange reasons as to why he’ll be successfu.
Mo Farah wants us to sign Messi… we think the adrenaline of winning his third goal medal went to his head.
Now, the match.
Arsenal lost 4-3 after going 1-0 ahead through Theo Walcott (a minute after he missed a penalty) and although the score was 4-1 at one point, it still wasn’t good enough, although Wenger had his book of cliches ready after the game. You can read how the whole match went down here.
