Robin Van Persie

Robin Van Persie, For a man whose obsession with attacking football has no limits, was a strange sight to see Arsene Wenger urging his players to curb a mass of red when they invaded toward the goal of Petr Cech. Arsenal coach did his best impression of Basil Fawlty as an instinctive way to protect your team a 4-3 lead was a bomb forward in search of piracy more.
“You know what is in the bank when you are 4-3 up with two minutes left,” he said with a wry smile. “Needless to cheer their team to become crazy. But that is the trademark of our team, our club. It is sometimes rewarded, sometimes you pay for it.”
In fact. A strange battle, which came out theatrically between blue and red, brought huge rewards for Arsenal, whose team showed unbridled joy at the end of everything. Nothing but the extraordinary Robin van Persie, the most influential figure in the revival of the club, which celebrated a hat-trick of considerable refinement.
The price paid by Chelsea feels heavy and raw. Although André Villas-Boas would not reveal the feelings displayed by John Terry in the locker room, the captain in the spotlight later suffered a threatened to be a hero, but left brutally exposed.
The different emotions of the two captains stood out in minute 85 with a time of 41,801 cause jaws to drop. There was still everything to play for as a routine pass from Florent Malouda made its way to Terry, but inexplicably dropped. No one was within five feet away, the tone was right and the day was clear and without rhyme of reason legs England captain went below it. There could be worse view of his position, face down on the field, that of Van Persie speeding away. Current Master of the Premier League sent a chance to score with aplomb, jumping around Cech to put Arsenal back in front and beautiful route to victory. Some might say that Terry had the bad luck, others might say it was karma.
That is two-game losing streak for Chelsea. Two derbies, too. Arsenal, by contrast, enjoyed a victory that shows that most of the early fall season. Eight wins in nine tells its own story, and this was the most significant of them all. The handbrake was well and truly started here.
It took courage, as well as quality, Chelsea started full of intention and purpose. Villas-Boas was cursing missed opportunities. However, on 14 minutes went to the front. The decision issued by an excellent pass, looking Crossfield left foot coming from Terry. Juan Mata has created a space habitual deception, and sent a pass from Frank Lampard nodded past the goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.
Where a month ago, this might have been the signal for a collapse of Arsenal, who were not intimidated. They followed, and tied on 36 minutes when Aaron Ramsey’s excellent threaded the ball to Gervinho, that Van Persie square sidefoot past Cech. At the stroke of half time Terry did most of the corner to make a shot in the bottom corner. The story was on their side at that time.
Arsenal recovered again. They left the half-hour break and immediately went on the attack with a chance Ramsey hook over the bar. In the 49th minute Alex Song picked up a huge hole in the Chelsea back line, and Andre Santos ran to him and pointed a straight shot between the legs of Cech.
A minute later, the pendulum swung back to the Blues, but things did not go with it. Ashley Cole advanced only in the inside left position and Szczesny career outside your area to meet him, making a leap of stars in an attempt to put off full-back. The Polo collided with Cole, but the referee, Andre Marriner, said that the offense deserves only a yellow card. To add to the irritation of Chelsea, Szczesny tip away Lampard’s free kick. “It arbitrator’s decision and that’s it. That’s all there is to say,” was the verdict of Villas-Boas.
Another blow: Walcott wandered into the thin blue line that now passes for the defense of Chelsea. Four players from around the end of England, which slid down on the grass then stumbled, and ran towards the goal. He curled the ball past Cech fiercely at the near post.
Mata took back the initiative with a strong attack from a distance, and these are the stereotypes about these two teams was the odds on a Chelsea win. It says a lot about both sides that there was never a question of someone to settle for a draw.
Van Persie rode to the rescue, as it has done so surprising regularity for Arsenal, and once he had done most of the misfortune of Terry, who supplied the coup de grace with a unit that probably terrified Cech punches and that deflected past him. He took home the ball home and the three points. That made for a happy captain.
