Arsenal yesterday picked up a vital three points in a 2-0 victory over Blackburn.
With the win the “Gunners” are now 5 points ahead of Manchester United and are in the poll position to win the EPL title.
Goals from Phillip Senderos and Emmanuel Adebayor sealed the deal at the Emirates Stadium. Senderos third minute header after poor marking from Benny McCarthy opened the door for Arsenal on a night they dominated. Blackburn goalkeeper Brad Friedel could do nothing about either finish.
United was defeated this past weekend at home by rivals Manchester City 2-0 for the first time since 1974 and the loss is a huge one if history plays out like it has in the past.
Arsenal has proved out it’s depth during the African Nations Cup time period missing a number of players and look supremely confident at this stage.
Will Arsenal win the title or can United re-gain it’s form?
