We have a superb matchday programme for the game you’ve all been waiting for, the north London derby.
Mikel Arteta assesses today’s challenge and discusses the positives and negatives of Thursday’s win in Greece. A game also discussed by captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in his captain’s notes, along with his favourite NLD moments and the increasing influence of Martin Odegaard.
Despite still being a teenager, Bukayo Saka is the Arsenal player with most derbies under his belt, and he tells us about the rivalry during his Academy years and his desperation to get on the scoresheet in a first-team game against the old enemy. The programme also features an exclusive with Dani Ceballos who tells us about his plans for the future – which don’t involve space travel!
In ‘Strong Young Gunners’ we catch up with recent Academy matches and hear from young goalkeeper Hubert Graczyk who’s carrying on the tradition of Polish goalkeepers at the Gunners – we also track down a former Academy star to the Scottish Premier League in our alumni feature.
There’s a whole host of other features too, including a look at our in-form visitors, analysis of all of the NLD games down the years, how Calum Chambers did in his return to first-team action and historical tactical analysis of Charlie George’s shift from striker to midfield magician.
