Joel Campbell had opened the scoring for Arsenal, who also hit the woodwork on three occasions, but goals from Wayne Routledge and Ashley Williams saw Swansea leave the Emirates Stadium with all three points for the third time in four years. Arsenal certainly has a chance to turn the tables in the Premier League standings, but confidence will be the x-factor in doing so.
Manchester City lost, Tottenham lost.
After both lost Wednesday, a draw between the neighbors could allow Leicester to move further in front in its improbable title challenge when it goes to Watford on Saturday.
Liverpool have yet to win three games in a row this season and they would achieve that feat by beating Palace. Our fans are unhappy, I am unhappy, we’re all unhappy and if you were in our dressing room after the game you would see that we are absolutely devastated to lose the game.
Arsenal have not finished below rivals Spurs during Wenger’s tenure but they are at risk of spurning arguably their best chance to win the league since last lifting the trophy in 2003-04.
“We are showing passion”, United midfielder Ander Herrera said ahead of Sunday’s game at West Brom.
However, Tottenham Hotspur are looking like the team to beat this season and will be fired up after that London derby defeat.
Unless, we’re living in a Hollywood movie, they are going down. We would then be six points behind the spuds with a much worse goal difference and even less confidence while they would have ridden the blow of losing to West Ham and bounced straight back.
“We need to get the three points and maybe Leicester will drop some points”. And we’ve got a lot of players that can step in if players get injured. Now there is so many things to do – Europe, Champions League. He has enough experience to play this type of game and he has played this game before so I think he will be fine.
“Arsenal are not in the best of form, but just being at home and with the way the team has performed this year, bouncing back from defeat, I fully expect them to do it again”. For me, it’s not important.
