Attacking with a purpose to prove a point, Arsenal took the game to league leading Manchester United and won 1-0 at the Emirates last evening. In the process, with Chelsea also winning, the loss to Arsenal means that United are just 3 points ahead of the Blues and the chase for the league title is wide open with 3 games left.
Aaron Ramsey’s winner early in the second half condemned United to defeat and leaves them only three points ahead of Chelsea with identical goal difference – and a meeting between the two to come at Old Trafford next Sunday. Forced to rebuild his promising career after suffering a broken leg, Ramsey made the most of a chance to deputise for injured captain Cesc Fabregas with a goal that will have been met with almost as much joy at Stamford Bridge as it was in front of Arsenal’s fans.
This leaves United on 73 points with 35 games played & Chelsea on 70 points with 3 games to go. A highly unlike situation will have to arise for Arsenal, 3 points behind Chelsea with 67 points, to win the league. This is provided that Arsenal win all 3 of their remaining games, Chelsea should beat or draw with Man U this coming weekend, and then the two teams will have to lose their next two games. Ideal scenario for us, one which is not at all probably but not impossible. Silverware will elude us yet again!
