The Premier League is undoubtedly one of the most exciting leagues in the world. For many football fans a match day experience provides immense enjoyment and a way to interact with their favourite teams. Although traditionally an affordable sport for the masses, between the price of tickets and concession stands, can the beautiful game still be considered a working-class sport?

Mental health can be a difficult issue for Players says Wenger

The Arsenal manager says that the culture of football can play a part in players being reluctant to admit they’re suffering from mental health issues. This is as men are expected to ‘strong’ and meet their problems head on and not deal with these sorts of issues.

This has caused a discussion this week after it was reported that Everton’s winger Aaron Lennon had been detained under the mental health act earlier in the week.

The Frenchman was asked about the situation at his press conference today, where he hinted that such stigma around this subject makes it hard for players to come to their clubs for help. This has come to light this week due to shameful articles coming from both the Daily Mail and Mirror, suggesting because of his salary the player shouldn’t be affected by any mental health issues.

This is what he had to say about the help that the players receive:

We help on the mental front the players that want help. It is difficult for the players when they do not meet their needs, and like all of us, they are frustrated and suffer from self-esteem [issues] in some situations. The expectation levels around them are very high; their families, agents, the pressure on them is very big and it is not easy to deal with that at a young age so, when needed, we help them.

Can Arsenal step up their game in the final weeks of the season?

Arsenal ended the month of March outside of the top four in the Premier League table. In fact, the Gunners were behind Manchester United in sixth and level on points with seventh-placed Everton when club football took a step back and international matches took precedence.

Could Arsenal sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in January?

Sure, Arsenal have been linked with a move for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in every transfer window for the last two or three years, but this could finally be their time to sign the Lyon star. According to various reports across Europe, the Gunners have contacted the French side to discuss a potential deal for the 25-year-old and it would be a major scalp for Arsene Wenger and the board if they can snag one of the continent’s hottest forwards next month.

Old frailties could cost Arsenal once again

The Arsenal of old have reared their heads in their recent Premier League form to send fans into a spiral of depression before Christmas. The Gunners were well positioned in the title race, but back-to-back defeats at the hands of Everton and Manchester City have left them well off the pace of current leaders Chelsea, leaving supporters with feelings of déjà vu.

Arsenal face a struggling PSG

The Champions League is back tonight and we have PSG first up. To be perfectly honest I am feeling rather confident. PSG in previous years have, already this short way into the season, established themselves with a lead at the top of the table. This season however they have struggled to get going. Is it simply down to the loss of Zlatan? No, but I think it is more than they realise.

Depleted Arsenal face battle to defeat Liverpool in Premier League opener

Arsenal enter the new Premier League season in the midst of an injury crisis ahead of their opener against Liverpool.

It’s a common theme with Arsene Wenger’s teams: health issues always seem to strike, whether it's at the start of the campaign or in the heat of battle for the top-flight crown.

I Can't Wait for the Premier League

The time is almost upon us come Sunday the 14th of August the wait will be over. Arsenal will start their Premier League campaign. The immediate thought it the hope that we will go one better than last season and end our drought on this oh so great competition. The second thought is that this season is promising to be more spectacular than ever before.

With Leicester winning the league last year, it showed that maybe money isn’t anything, but that hasn’t stopped teams like United spending big. They have already secured the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and now they are looking to spend close to £100 on Pogba. That is silly money! But saying that! I wouldn't say no if we spent that plus I could really use a good signing for my  Fantasy Team.

Guardiola, Klopp, Wenger, Conte, Mourinho, Pochettino, Ranieri, it is going to be a very interesting season indeed. Who could ever argue that this is not the best league in the world. As a betting man I will be checking all the online sportsbooks sites to see what odds I can get. Arsenal's odds will increase with the signing of that one pivotal player who could put us in the drivers seat. A striker? I think yes a striker would be the position I am most after.

One thing is for sure. This season is going to be one to remember, I only pray to the football gods above that it swings Arsenal's way.

Come on you Gunners!
