Really I am still trying without a great deal of success to cope with th fact that Arsenal lost away to Liverpool this weekend. Not because the result was any sort of a surprise as Anfield has not been the happiest of hunting grounds for the Gunners in recent years, but because Arsene Wenger chose to leave our best player Alexis Sanchez on the bench.
That result, which may not have been too much of a shock but was still a painful blow, left Arsenal fans hoping that the loss might not be too damaging. No such luck Gooners. As these things tend to work out our loss has been punished to the mac#x with Man City and Tottenham both picking up three points, away to Sunderland and at home to Everton respectively.
Those results leave the Gunners out of the top four at a crucial time of the season and at a time when we hoped to be challenging for top spot if not running away with it. For those Arsenal fans hoping to get rid of Arsene Wenger this might be seen as a good thing but the I really do not want to be in the Europa League next year if we can help it, do you?
