In a game that matters only for a place in the Champion's League next season, Arsenal stemmed the bleeding with a 1-0 victory over Liverpool. Abu Diaby scored the games lone goal in the 72d minute. It was not a particularly thrilling or edifying display of football. I wonder whether Wenger will declare this victory a vindication, and claim that Arsenal are now back in the title hunt. He would, of course, be wrong, despite the fact that Chelsea lost today and Man U drew.
UPDATE: As predicted, Arsene Wenger now insists (here) that Arsenal are back in the title hunt, despite the fact that they remain 6 points behind Chelsea, and have lost all 4 games with the two teams above them. I suppose Liverpool's manager, Rafa Benitez might claim that they can still catch Arsenal for third place in the Premier League despite the loss to them yesterday, and currently trailing them by 8 points. Absurd.
