Arsenal changed the terms in Barclays Premier League title race, after finally finding the character of champions to beat the leaders, Manchester United, with a modest 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium.
With the last Sunday defeat at Bolton Wanderers, The Gunners saw their own title ambitions extinguished , but with this victory they gave their frustrated fans renewed hope, next season might be different for Arsene Wenger’s young team.
Arsene Wenger: “It’s difficult to fault the attitude and sprit of the team but we lack, maybe, under pressure a little bit of nerve and experience. We’re playing to be as close as we can to the top. We need to show that we have fighting spirit and discipline.”
Sir Alex Ferguson: “After that goal we dominated and I think we deserved something. Obviously, it gives Chelsea a major chance now. But in terms of ability – a game at Old Trafford, the supporters will be ready for it – and so will our players.”
The title is still on then and the game with the higher importance is that between Manchester United and Chelsea this weekend. With only three points behind, The Blues are very close and each mistake could be fatal.
