Sunderland provided the perfect ending to a great weekend for Arsenal by beating Man City 1-0 on the penultimate kick of the match. The top four teams (Man City, Man U, Tottenham, and Chelsea) all lost, allowing the Gunners back into the top four and putting them within 3 points of 3d, and nine points of the co-leaders.
Meanwhile, Wenger has confirmed that former Arsenal talisman Theirry Henry will be rejoining the team on a two-month loan to add some offensive firepower. In addition, Wenger has indicated that the injury suffered by Thomas Vermaelen in yesterday's game (a calf strain) will require him to dip into the market for a defender. And news reports indicate that Arsenal will make an offer for German International striker Lucas Podolski, who together with Henry would help take some scoring pressure off of Robin van Persie's shoulders.
