Chelsea Slip as Arsenal Draw

In a non Chelsea scoring game, Fenerbache managed to breeze past Chelsea. 2-1 was the final score, and Chelsea didn't have a single say in it! After 18 minutes, a defensive error by Devied (Sp?) allowed an own goal to be scored, but he made up for it later as Fenerbache defeated our London Rivals.
I was blessed enough to watch the game live, although it meant me having to get up at some unearthly hour!! But, it was well worth it! 2 goals in a period of 3 minutes were the only goals scored, but the domination of Arsenals play was more than enough confidence for me to believe that Arsenal will go through, even with Liverpool having the away goal. Arsenal opened the scoring in the 23 minute, with a van Persie pass off a corner to Fabregas, then Fabs cross into the area finding........ ADEBAYOR!!!!! I went absolutely ballistic... Three minutes later, and after a Gerrard piece of magic, Liverpool were level. Kuyt sliding the ball home. Arsenal should have been awarded a penalty on the hour mark when Hleb, who was playing magnificent football, was dragged to the floor somewhat roughly. But in a game where no cards were given, it wasn't to be. Theo replaced RvP at half time, and Bentner at around the hour replaced Eboue. All in all, an Arsenal domination. Terrific passing did the job. All we need now is to score once, or play out a scoring draw to go to ET/Penalties. Regardless, it is going to be a nail biter!
Till next time Gunners, when we play the same team, in the same place, but different time!
