In this tightest and possibly strangest of Premier League seasons, not too much has gone the way of Arsenal, even though at times we have been our own worst enemies. But after Wenger and the lads were left cursing some games when we deserved to win but were denied by some bad luck and some superb goal keeping displays, the same thing actually went in our favour tonight.
I must say that I was really impressed with the display from our EPL title rivals Leicester City, who never gave up and laid siege to the West Brom goal for large parts of the game. But the final score was 2-2 and that just gives an undoubtedly dispirited Arsenal team a boost just when we need it.
The big question, however, is whether we can get our act together and grab this title lifeline that the leaders have thrown out. If we play like we have been doing recently then the answer will be no. But if the Gunners can muster up some of the fighting spirit that Arsene Wenger has been banging on about so much and get a win over Swansea tomorrow, well things get interesting again.
It could be that Arsenal beat Swansea and then do the spuds on Saturday. We know that the players have it in them. But can they produce when it really matters?
