Arsenal: Bendtner soars high for the winner

The storyline: Two clever back heels, Almunia, and a soaring Bendtner.
Arsenal pull it off. An enervated Gunner team coming off an exhausting Chelsea win replete with post match recriminations that spilled into the week from John Terry bitter over the Eboue tackle to Mark Hughes accusing Arsenal over practicing the dark arts, to confront their bitter North London rivals. Spurs were riding a high with a win over Portsmouth and Man City.
Fabregas after misfiring most of the match produced that little bit of magic backheeling a pass to the onrushing Adebayor who coolly slotted it past Robinson. On the other end it was Keane’s version that led to Berbatov’s toeing the ball from the tightest of angles over Almunia. About five minutes later Spurs should have gone ahead with Toure bringing down Berbatov with Rob Styles signaling a penalty. Almunia read the ball right, dived right, and stopped Keane’s low effort.
Wenger brought in Nicklas Bendtner in the 74th minute and it paid off in minutes as the Danish striker lifting himself over the earthbound Spurs defence, turned in a Fabregas corner past Robinson.
Spurs were six feet under and 21 games without a win against the Gunners.
