Arsenal On The March
Arsenal have their sights set on leapfrogging rivals Tottenham Hotspur after coming from behind to beat Newcastle United 2-1 in dramatic fashion.
The Gunners were ten points behind Spurs going into their north London derby last month but there has been a shift in power since Arsene Wenger's side registered an incredible 5-2 victory over their neighbours.
Arsenal have snatched last-gasp victories in their last two games while Spurs' season continues to stutter after three consecutive league defeats. Fans of Betfair odds will be keeping a close eye on the betting moves.
The gap is now just one solitary point after Thomas Vermaelen converted Theo Walcott's cross in the dying seconds to hurt Newcastle's own European ambitions.
Walcott who has been a central figure during Arsenal's resurgence believes the pressure is now on Spurs and expects his side to overhaul their rivals.
For the fourth consecutive Premier League match, Arsenal fell behind at Emirates Stadium. Hatem Ben Arfa found a yard of space in the box and drilled a low shot in at the near post. Those looking at the Premier League betting will have been shocked.
Arsenal's response was immediate. The irrepressible Robin van Persie worked a chance for himself inside the area and finished with ease past Newcastle keeper Tim Krul.
With barely 15 minutes on the clock it looked as if there could be another glut of goals at the home of the Gunners. However, Newcastle frustrated the hosts and the game was seemingly heading for a draw, only for Vermaelen to strike a cruel blow.
