Arsenal weekend round-up: Flamini doubtful for Dortmund while Lewandowski is linked

All the latest from the past couple of days at The Emirates.

Arsenal were comfortable winners against Norwich City this weekend. Jack Wilshere scored a superb team-goal to start off the victory, before Mesut Ozil made it 2-0.

Norwich did pull one back but Arsenal were in top form and a further goal from Ozil and a fine solo effort from Aaron Ramsey secured the 4-1 triumph.

The first goal from Wilshere has received plenty of attention, as perhaps an early contender for goal of the season.

Arsene Wenger for instance is one man who believes the hype.

He had this to say:

‘’It was certainly one of the best [Arsenal] goals, one that I enjoyed the most as well because it was a team goal. It had combinations and the speed which you always like your team to play with, unfortunately it doesn't happen always. This one was a mixture of technical quality, speedy thinking, quick reaction and as well being calm in front of goal. It had nearly everything you want to have.’’

But there was some bad news from the game.

Mathieu Flamini is a massive doubt for the game with Borussia Dortmund this week after he suffered a nasty looking clash of heads with Norwich enforcer Alexander Tettey. He suffered with concussion and had to be withdrawn. The estimated recovery time leaves him a major doubt for the Champions League tie.

Arsenal may be trying to not get carried away with their current form, but one man who does think they can win the league title is Jurgen Klopp.

The charismatic German will be plotting to beat The Gunners on Tuesday night, but he was singing their praises today - stating that the signing of Mesut Ozil makes them genuine title contenders.

Arsenal and Manchester City are reportedly set to fight for the signature of Robert Lewandowski in January.

The Borussia Dortmund striker was expected to sign for Bayern Munich at the end of the season, but he recently made it clear that no deal was done, and that he does dream of playing in the Premier League.

Finally, and Abou Diaby is out until March. He has had further surgery on the knee problem that has kept him out of action recently so is now pencilled in to return next year, which will mark a year out of action.
