Match Commentary

94' Thanks for joining us folks, be sure to check out ESPNsoccernet for all the fallout from this game and for all the live updates and action from tomorrow's Premier League matches. I bid you adieu.
94' If Manchester United win their game in hand on Chelsea, they will be nine points clear - an incredible swing of 14 points from when the Blues were five points clear in October. Arsenal, meanwhile, are now right in the hunt.
94' FT: Comment from ESPNsoccernet's Jon Carter: Wenger called the game 'must-win' and paid attention to the 'mental hurdle' that Arsenal had to negotiate. Job done, but even he would have been surprised by the lack of fight in Chelsea.
