  • FANDEMONIUM

    Premier League clubs will be playing in front of fans in just a WEEK'S time, the government has announced.

    Once lockdown comes to an end on December 2, supporters will be allowed to return to stadiums at capacities of up to 4,000.

    However, this will depend on which tier of Covid restrictions their local area is allocated.

    London is expected to remain in Tier 2 when lockdown ends.

    That would mean Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, Fulham, Crystal Palace and West Ham all being allowed to host supporters but at a capacity of just two thousand.

  • WILSH UPON A STAR

    Jack Wilshere has revealed it would be a ‘dream’ to return to Arsenal - but he is not holding out much hope.

    The 28-year-old was released by West Ham this summer just two years after joining them from the Gunners.

    He ITV Football Football Show: “Listen, you never know. I'm an Arsenal man.

    “I've not spoken to anyone or anything but that would be the dream.

    “I'm not stupid to know that there's probably no chance of it happening but I'm an Arsenal man, I love the club and want to see the club do well.”

  • LUCKY ESCAPE

    Arsenal are hopeful Bukayo Saka only suffered knee bruising after he limped off injured at Leeds on Sunday.

    The star winger will miss the Gunners' Europa League trip to Molde tomorrow but should be back in action soon after.

    Medical staff are hopeful it is just bruising and nothing more sinister, according to the Mail.

    Saka, 19, came on as a second-half substitute in the 0-0 draw at Elland Road before he was forced off soon after.

    He hurt himself in a challenge with Ezgjan Alioski.

    And after trying and failing to play through the pain, Saka was replaced by Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

  • PLAYER STATS

    The stats make grim reading for Arsenal fans with the club scoring just nine goals in as many Premier League games.

  • RIP HEAVY D

    Arsenal Fan TV regular Heavy D has sadly passed away at the age of 43.

  • CHRIS CROSS

    Arsenal have reportedly rejected the chance to sign former Tottenham star Christian Eriksen from Inter Milan.

    The Danish playmaker is out of favour at the San Siro, and could be on the move in January.

    It had been claimed that the Gunners were eyeing up a possible move as Mikel Arteta looks to add creativity to his side.

    But according to the Daily Star, Arsenal are not interested in bringing the player back to North London.

  • ADI-DAZZKER

    The future at the Emirates Stadium looks bright.

    A new wave of young talent is trickling into the first team, with the likes of Joe Willock, Bukayo Saka, Eddie Nketiah and Reiss Nelson all getting game time in North London.

    The Europa League has been kind to Arsenal's youngsters, with many being blooded into the side in the competition.

    And the next wonderkid expected to waltz into the Gunners side is Miguel Azeez, 18, who is expected to make is debut against Molde on Thursday.

    Azeez is a swaggering midfield player, equally adept at playing in the anchor role as he is as a No10.

  • YOUNG GUNS

    Arsenal face Molde in the Europa League tomorrow looking to secure their place in the next round.

    And with several youngsters on the plane, Mikel Arteta looks set to give youth a chance with up to four potentially starting the game.

    The Gunners have won all three of their opening Group B fixtures in the Europa League - while averaging three goals per game.

    And having beaten Molde 4-1 at the Emirates in their last Europa League game earlier this month, Arteta is seemingly confident he can win in Norway with a youthful XI.

    Here's how the North Londoners could line-up...

  • WIL I NEVER

    Darren Bent has urged Mikel Arteta to re-sign Jack Wilshere for Arsenal.

    The midfielder would be available on a free transfer after leaving West Ham in the summer.

    Ex-Spurs striker Bent told talkSPORT: “I hope he does return. Pay-as-you-play, Jack Wilshere, why not?

    “He’s got that creativity and I know he’d be hungry to go back to Arsenal, I know how much he loves the club.

    “I’m not saying give him a normal contract, but on a pay-as-you-play, I’d take him back tomorrow.”

  • BACK YU COME

    Arsenal are reportedly monitoring their former academy ace Yunus Musah, 17, with a view to bringing him back to the Emirates.

    90min.com reports the Gunners are keeping a close eye on the Valencia youngster.

    The report states fellow Premier League sides Leeds, Wolves and Everton are also interested.

    The talented winger quit North London for Spain in 2019 and has become a regular in the Valencia first team, scoring one goal in nine LaLiga apperances this season.

    Musah broke the club's record for youngest ever goalscorer earlier this month.

    Arsenal are believed to have continued to watch his progress since he left last year.

  • AD A PROPER LOOK

    Tony Adams has admitted Arsenal star Bernd Leno has proved him totally wrong.

    Following the goalkeeper's impressive display against Leeds, the Gunners legend said: "I questioned recruitment. Willian, Pepe - did we need them.

    "I questioned the Martinez goalkeeper we let go, instead of Leno.

    "But Leno, he pulled off a fantastic save, so he kind of is making me eat my words a little bit."

  • ITALIAN JOB

  • HOT ROD

    Brendan Rodgers could end up managing Chelsea or Arsenal, according to Jamie Carragher.

    Carragher believes one of the London big guns could move for the Northern Irishman when they next decide to make a change.

    He told the Daily Mail: “Brendan Rodgers is the best British coach out there, no doubt.

    “Maybe you could argue that the Liverpool job came too early but I think he did a good job, coming closer than any manager to winning the league in 30 years.

    “Maybe it would be difficult to go back to Liverpool or to coach Manchester United, given the Liverpool connection, but I think he’ll be up for the top jobs in this country, maybe England too."

  • FAN-TASTIC

    Premier League clubs will be playing in front of fans as soon as NEXT WEEK under proposals unveiled by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

    The government has announced that once lockdown comes to an end on December 2, supporters will be allowed to return to stadiums at capacities of up to 4000.

    Speaking on the FIVE YouTube channel, Ferdinand said: "I saw [Rob] Holding when the whistle went, delighted and fist-pumping.

    "They couldn't believe their luck."

  • URGE FOR BERGE

    Arsenal are reportedly still interested in signing Sander Berge from Sheffield United.

    The Gunners were heavily linked to the Norwegian star during the summer transfer window.

  • 'VERY, VERY IMPORTANT'

    Arsenal star Joe Willock is a 'rare gem' and has a 'huge future in football', according to Kevin Campbell.

    The ex-Gunners star told Football Insider: "I think Willock has a huge future in football."He is a rare gem.

    There are very few midfielders like him who run in behind and take a chance.

    "He makes a centre-forward's life easy.

    "It will take a bit of time for him to get used to first-team football but once he does, he will be very, very important for Arsenal."

  • FANDEMONIUM

    Premier League clubs could host tens of thousands of fans inside stadiums by January if there is no spike in coronavirus cases, according to reports.

    But that number could be boosted massively in early 2021 with plans for pilot events hosting tens of thousands of fans, according to The Telegraph.

    However, the plans are set to include only 'some' Premier League clubs.
