The Arsenal Comeback

Boltan 2 – 3 Arsenal

These are the type of matches which makes you love football. Arsenal needed a win to get there title challenge back on track and what a way to get it. Arsenal didn’t get off to a great start as Boltan scored from there first attack with a header from Matthew Taylor. Things got worse for Arsenal as Diaby was sent off for a professional foul and Taylor’s deflected shot doubled Boltan’s lead. It looked as if the game along with the title challenge might be over for Arsenal as they were lacking there natural rhythm and Boltan were well organized.

But come 60th minute and things started to change for Arsenal. An unmarked William Gallas scored from a Fabregas corner and just six minutes later, Arsenal won a penalty and Van Persie converted it to send Arsenal level. Van Persie had another good chance but he fired wide from 12 yards. But the game was set for a fairytale finish as Arsenal scored through a Fabregas deflected shot in the 90th minute and Arsenal recorded there first win in 6 games to keep them in the title charge.

With the champions league also coming up, it will be interesting to see how the small and young Arsenal squad deal with all these games. Arsene Wenger should have brought a couple of players in the January window. But with the young players playing extremely well, anything is possible.
