Well, who could have written the script any better? Daniel Sturridge, on loan from Chelsea helped Bolton to secure a famous victory against Arsenal at the Reebok Stadium
The pacey young striker wreaked havoc upon the Arsenal defence with his amazing pace and work rate. He caused Koscielny and Djourou to worry throughout the entire match but kudos to Szczesny yesterday for denying Bolton’s many shots, and even being able to save a penalty, which in all honesty was a bit harsh.
But Samir Nasri, what can we say, it was honestly just a horrible display out there for the Frenchman as he had many brilliant oppourtunities, only to throw the chances aside to pass it to a teammate when shooting was really a better option.
I guess that’s a bit of the difference between Bolton and Arsenal yesterday, the reason being that Bolton aren’t afraid of taking a chance and often launch it into the penalty box searching out for a chance, whilst most of Arsenal’s build up play comes outside the penalty box, with all that being worth nothing if that final ball isn’t good enough.
But that leaves Arsenal 3 behind Chelsea and 9 behind Manchester United now, that probably means game over doesn’t it? Well, Arsene Wenger doesn’t exactly think so yet.
The chances are very minimal now, that is for sure. But we have to continue to fight. It is true that we have dropped too many points today.
