Arsene Wenger was pleased to see his Arsenal team take all three points from yesterday’s match against West Ham, but he admitted that the height of Andy Carroll certainly caused problems for the Arsenal defence, while Kevin Nolan also had two easy chances to score for the Hammers but failed with his final touch.
Wenger said: “You never can completely control Carroll for 90 minutes. You have to fight for him and be good on the second ball.

Just six weeks ago Arsenal looked like Premiership title contenders, and were on their way to Barcelona with a chance of making it to the Champions League semi-finals, but since then they have failed to win a game, and there season is ending with a whimper.
Perhaps the four goal demolition by Lionel Messi destroyed their confidence, but for whatever reason they are now 11 points behind Chelsea, and suddenly looking like an average team.
Blackburn are a hard team to beat at home at any time, but Arsenal had their chances and could have been 10 up in the first few minutes but Carlos Vela missed from one yard out. .......Read the full article here
