Watched by thousands, the Premier League matches are one of the most popular soccer tournaments to view across the globe and loved by many.

Football fans await this time of year so patiently to see what their beloved soccer team will be wearing the next season. Most Premier League teams have now launched at least one of their new football kits for 2018/19, and some are due to be released in the next few months. Let’s take a look at the most impressive and stylish jerseys on sale from a variety of manufacturers at the moment.
Arsenal Home and Away Kits
Produced by Puma for their last season before transferring over to Adidas, they have most definitely pulled out all the stops with their new home jersey. Compared to last year, they have reverted back to a rounded neckline while still keeping the red torso and white sleeves. However, this time the white is seen across the shoulders as well.
Bringing a modernized and unique feel to the shirt, there are thin light red stripes around the ends of the sleeves. With this, there is also a slight chevron styled portion of the torso at the

Arsenal’s demise from being a top European heavyweight to a club that is living off scraps and is in a state of uselessness is not new. Their cyclical season pattern has been a prominent feature year after year, for the past half decade. And, unfortunately for those in favour of keeping Arsène Wenger at the club, things will not change until Arsenal part ways with the manager that has given them so much.
No one should deny that Wenger hasn’t brought a lot to English football, as well as Arsenal, especially when he first joined in 1996. Bringing in a newfound professionalism, that consisted mainly of strict dietary plans, as well as improved training facilities and introducing sports science, Wenger changed the history of the Premier League whether people like to admit it or not.
It’s unfortunate and sad to see a manager of Wenger’s stature, for all the good he has done in the game, have his legacy tainted, especially in the last few years. It would be pleasant to think

With the setup of the summer transfer window reportedly meant to be changing, where the business completed by the teams will have to be done before the new season starts, most clubs and managers will have to prepare themselves by creating a small list of targets before the current campaign is over.
Sometimes, the best way to be effective within the market and be one step ahead of the other teams is by looking out for which individuals are close to being available on a free transfer. One of the huge factors to this, is that a potential club can negotiate and come to an agreement with a player that is in the final six months of his contract to go on to completing a move to his next destination on a summer Bosman move.
Here are the six European players that will become a free agent at the end of the season...

The rivalry between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho will go down as one of the biggest that the Premier League has ever seen. The personalities of coaches, the excitement and hype ahead of the London Derby has made it a thriller of an event to watch.
However, the story itself has not been the same due to the sacking of Mourinho by Chelsea’s board back in December 2015. Since then, the 55-year-old Portuguese has had his own battles with managers such as Antonio Conte and Pep Guardiola, but despite these, he has not forgotten to make an occasional dig towards long-term rival Arsene Wenger.
Following last month’s swap deal, which saw Alexis Sanchez join Manchester United whilst Henrikh Mkhitaryan travelled in the opposite direction, to Arsenal, both players are now part of an elite list of players that have played for Wenger and Mourinho.
It’s time to go through the players that have relished the chance of working under both managers...

ArsÃ¨ne Wenger's time at Arsenal has now reached the point where the candle has been burnt right down to its core and is on it's last flicker.
It has been sad to see one of the all-time Premier League greats become a focal point of humiliation and desperation from the Arsenal fans in recent years. It has been a long time coming that the French manager is being ushered to leave the club.
Unfortunately for Arsenal fans, their team has not progressed for over a decade. While they go in and out of winning the FA Cup, their domestic form and European record is forever on the decline.
Last year, Wenger failed to finish in the top four for the first time since the 1994-95 season, over two decades ago. It was a sad indictment of his power and presence at his beloved club, but the truth of the matter is that Wenger simply cannot take Arsenal to the next level anymore.
While the former Monaco manager is one of the most respected coaches of

22nd December 2017.
As the January transfer window is just around the corner, clubs all over Europe will be discussing their plans to bring in the targets they have identified.
Historically, January has been a time period where you might find a bargain in the market, due to the player forcing his way out of the club, or because their contract is expiring in six months' time.
With that being said, here are the three best free transfers available in Europe right now:
Mesut Ã–zil Arsenal
The German's next club, should he leave Arsenal, will realise that they have secured one of the biggest bargains of the last decade.
It has been surprising to see the Gunners allow Mesut Ã–zil to run down his contract with no contingency plan involved, and so there is no surprise to see a number of teams interested in signing the World Cup winner when his contract expires next June.
Ã–zil is in the position now, coming into January, where he can
