The growing trend of shocking defending in the Premier League was in full swing at Stamford Bridge yesterday, as Arsenal ran out 5-3 winners. Arsene Wenger hailed Robin van Persie’s display and believes the Dutchman is on fire at the moment, while Andre Villas-Boas was quick to rule out that the race row has had little to do with John Terry’s concentration levels yesterday. A timely slip by the Chelsea skipper opened the door for Van Persie to put Arsenal 4-3 ahead.
Elsewhere in the news Ferguson claims it is about time United won 1-0; Taraabt calls upon Warnock for greater protection, while Dave Whelan sparks outrage with comments.
