“They (i.e. the Reds) lacked any fluency – ’sometimes good possession, sometimes not so good’ was Rafael Benitez's description, they continue to field a Steven Gerrard who looks a mere footballing mortal and their defense looked a few seconds away from calamity in a hairy first 45 minutes”. This is how Ian Herbert of UK’s The Independent described the game yesterday. Yes, as I have already admitted yesterday, we were very extremely lucky!
And early this morning, Malaysian time, Premier League leaders Chelsea left Arsenal's title challenge reeling by beating the Gunners 3-0 to increase the gap to 11 points on their London rivals. The Blues again showed their power was superior to Arsenal's panache. Sigh!
