We can’t moan can we? Three points away at QPR for the first time in the Premier League. A dream start, with Theo scoring in double quick time from Arteta’s pass. Then a long 90-minute or so wait for the final whistle.
With Spurs beating Southampton with a last-gasp goal from Bale, there was no margin for error. But there were errors. Luckily, they went unpunished.
Rosicky was profligate in possession and, near the end, Rambo seemed to take leave of his senses, surrendering the ball unnecessarily.
Townsend teased Monreal for most of the game, so I felt sure the Spurs loaned would score but he didn’t. We have to thanks Szczesny for that. The Pole’s form has improved since he was dropped by Wenger, so well done the manager.
Two more wins should be enough to cement 3rd place. Chelsea play Spurs soon, so one of them or both will drop points.
So it’s Wigan next and then Newcastle away. Can we do it? Yes! Will we? I said we’d finish 3rd at the start of the season, but I’ll settle for 4th now!
