Bad bad draw. When you look at how the other results have gone, Liverpool and United both drawing their games, two more points would have taken them closer to the league leaders.And the result at Villa Park means that Arsenal are pushed down to 5th in the league table.
The riverside stadium has been an unlucky ground for Arsenal for some time now and when Adebayor’s scored in the first half I thought luck was changing. There was pressure on both ends and I would not say that we were the better side. Infact we were lucky that we didnt concede a penalty with Clichy being the culprit. Clichy has been having some lapse in concentration in a couple of matches now. Title hopes seem to be fading with every loss in points be it three or two.
The match of the day was the one in Anfield where Hull City the team with the biggest heart and fighting spirit I have seen in recent times went ahead by two goals. And whenever Liverpool have a crisis they have Capt. Marvel who will come to the rescue. On how many occasions have we seen Stevie G come to front and score those vital goals. He leads by example and is an asset any team would like to have. We have to give him credit for a stellar performance which eventually restored parity.
What Arsenal need is a player like Steven Gerrard.
