The Gunners Lose Ground
When I last checked the match before lunch, Arsenal were up 1-0 in the 82d minute. I returned from lunch to find that Birmingham City tied the match at 1-1. This is a dispiriting result, especially given Chelsea's 7-1 romp at Aston Villa. Arsenal couldn't afford the 2 points they dropped today. If they are to have any chance of winning the Premiership, I think they will have to win out their remaining matches. The Gunners cannot expect Chelsea and Manchester United, who still have to face one another, to drop enough points in their remaining games to permit Arsenal another slip up.
