Frenchman believes last-gasp win is big step towards championship
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger feels that his side have every chance to win their first Premier League title since the undefeated team of 2003-04 after a Nicklas Bendtner injury time winner gave the Gunner a vital three points on Saturday evening.
After Andrei Arshavin had given Arsenal an early lead but Hull City’s Jimmy Bullard converted a penalty on 28 minutes to level the score.
Hull City midfielder George Boateng was sent off just before the half-time whistle, but Arsenal could not take advantage of the dismissal until the 93rd minute when a Denilson shot was parried by Hull keeper Boaz Myhill into the path of Bendtner who made no mistake.
The victory is Arsenal’s fifth on the trot, and Wenger knows that the win over Hull was an important result and that his side will give their best to win the Premier League.
"It's maybe not good for my heart, but for the championship it's not bad,” Wenger told The Sun.
"We have eight games to go, we are in there, why should we not believe?
"What I believe especially is that we will give absolutely everything to do it. You saw that in the game today. We were a bit jaded but we kept going."We needed the three points and we got it after the 90 minutes."
