The English Premiership title race could be determined by matches that shall pit the prime four contenders between every other. Circumstance in point is Liverpool’s win about Chelsea. It gave the Reds the distance it needed from the Blues and cease them in their tracks. Though the draw that Chelsea has in opposition to Hull more increased the gap.

An additional achievable scenario is Aston Villa’s resurgence. The staff has now occupied the third spot following they dislodged Arsenal in fourth spot and Chelsea’s slip from third. Remarkably, the staff is undertaking it quietly, minus the pomp and buzz. If they go on to maintain on to 3rd spot, then it implies that Arsenal and Chelsea now have to battle for fourth place for a chance to play in the Champions League. This kind of is the value of the Gunners’ match in opposition to Tottenham Hotspur.

In the first football result of Sunday, Tottenham missed the chance to choose up three valuable points when it failed to win its match versus Arsenal despite the Gunners becoming diminished to ten men and had to settle to a – draw. Emmanuel Eboue was presented the red card after he picked up two unneeded yellow cards all in the 1st 50 percent. Arsenal fans then watched their senior striker Emmanuel Adebayor be taken out in what the Gunners suspect as a severe hamstring damage.

New Arsenal recruit Andrey Arshavin was not employed in the match even if he was current at the substitutes’ bench as Arsenal supervisor Arsene Wenger even now has doubts on Arshavin’s match fitness. The Russian playmaker has not played competitive football given that the shut of the Russian League for its winter break.

Robbie Keane created his initial appearance for the club following a forgettable transfer move to Liverpool which noticed him struggle for a area in the very first group squad. He partnered Roman Pavlyuchenko in assault and appeared to be operating very well. They were unlucky however to uncover the net for the impotant targets that could have put the crew more away from the relegation zone.

For Arsenal although, the draw has pleased the aspect no conclude as they know that with what occurred on the pitch, things could have been even worse and they may possibly have endured a reduction. But the draw didn’t support their result in of coming into the prime four slots either.

Adebayor’s hamstring damage signifies that the striker shall be out for three weeks. In that span, he shall means the Gunners’ league games versus Sunderland and Fulham, theFA Cup replay from Cardiff and the Champions League game from Roma. He joins the team’s long record of injured players between them Cesc Fabregas (knee), Thomas Rosicky (hamstring tendon), Mikael Silvestre (thigh), Abou Diaby (thigh) and Theo Walcott (shoulder).

Croatian striker Eduardo, who broke his leg practically a yr back, returned to the facet and sat at the substitutes’ bench. He along with young Mexican striker Carlos Vela can cover for Adebayor’s absence at the ahead position. Robin Van Persie and Nicklas Bendtner look to be Wenger’s chosen attacking duo at the moment.

With Tottenham, supervisor Harry Redknapp is hoping that the cash splurge that he shelled out to buy gamers Keane and Jermaine Defoe shall jumpstart his team’s bid to escape relegation.
