Newcastle United 1-3 Arsenal, 21st March 2009.
1st half : The opening stages only simmered but it would come to the boil as half time approached. The first real opening came in the 15th minute when Van Persie sent Bendtner scampering through in the right-hand channel. The Danish striker got away an excellent cross-shot, forcing a solid save from Steve Harper. Newcastle claimed a penalty four minutes later when Nasri nudged over Damian Duff but referee Mark Halsey turned them down. They would get a spot-kick at the midpoint of the half when Almunia dropped a cross under pressure from Ryan Taylor and then was adjudged to have hauled down the midfielder as he tried to recover the ball. It was a soft decision but Almunia would make amends. Martins put his penalty to the keeper’s left but the Spaniard guessed correctly and clung on tightly having made the save. It was a vital contribution from a player who is increasingly important at Arsenal Football Club. The punishment should have been doubled seconds later. Bendtner nodded the ball to Van Persie on the edge of the area, he fed Arshavin, who had perfectly timed an angled run into the area. His first touch was excellent, his second was a shot that was superbly charged down by Steven Taylor. Suddenly the floodgates opened and both sides created a torrent of chances before the break. Martins guided a header just wide of the far post. Then on the half hour the Nigerian sent Lovenkrands skipping past Toure and it took another well-timed block from Clichy to prevent the Dane going one-on-one. Arsenal were having the clearer chances but Newcastle were creating a plentiful supply themselves. Arshavin escaped a couple of clumsy efforts from Steven Taylor and sent in a fizzing shot from distance. It skimmed the bar on route over. Lovenkrands failed to connect from point-blank range then Martins sent a shot just wide and Habib Beye, on for Sebastien Bassong, nodded a header straight into the arms of Almunia. And before half time Arsenal would carve Newcastle apart on a couple of occasions only to be denied by desperate defending. First Van Persie controlled a cross from Nasri with a deft touch and attempted to flick the ball past Harper. The keeper flung out an expert arm to divert the ball wide. Then, two minutes from the interval, Fabricio Collicini slipped and Bendtner went clear on the right-hand side of the area. Rightly, he chose to square to Van Persie but his effort was once again blocked by Steven Taylor. Brilliant defending. Somehow the game went into the break without a goal but there had been opportunities to fill three or four games. It was wonderful fare.
2nd half : The trend continued after the break. In the 52nd minute Ryan Taylor’s corner was nodded powerfully towards goal by his namesake Steven and Toure headed the ball away. A breakthrough just had to come. And it did so in the 57th minute. Ryan Taylor hauled down Clichy on the left, Arshavin swung the free-kick to the far post where the twisting Bendtner turned home a header.
It was just what Arsenal needed. But the lead would last a matter of seconds. Newcastle kicked-off and clipped the ball forward into the left-hand channel. Sagna inadvertently nodded the ball into the path of Martins in the area. The Nigerian prodded home his seventh goal of the season. It was mental blow to Arsenal. But Newcastle would be hit with a physical blow a few minutes later and it would cost them a goal. Steven Taylor had done as much as anyone to keep the game scoreless in that stunning first half. But he was off with an injury in the 64th minute when Diaby raced onto Van Persie’s touch and slammed the ball high into the Newcastle net.
Three minutes later Van Persie again provided the assist as Nasri’s low drive beat Harper low at the near post.
The third goal drained Newcastle and Arsenal started to steamroller them. Denilson forced a fine save from Harper in the middle of a goalmouth melee. Then Clichy’s defence splitting ball sent Van Persie through but the keeper again made a fine stop. As the game drew to a close, Arsenal began to slow down. They had what they wanted. Diaby hit the woodwork from distance in injury time and, when the whistle blew seconds later, St James’ Park seemed a desperate place. Except for the pocket of Arsenal fans singing loudly high up in one of stands. Their side are back on song once more.
Full Time : Arsenal won. Newcastle United 1, Arsenal 3.

Arsenal 2-1 Hull City, 17th March 2009.
1st half : To be honest, there had been a whole heap of nothingness before Hull scored – but at least the play had been predominantly directed towards the opposition goal. The strike itself was odd. In the 12th minute, Andy Dawson clipped an aimless ball into the channel for Barmby to run onto. The former Spurs striker swung a boot at it and the ball deflected off the outstretched leg of the onrushing Djourou. It looped over the head of the helpless Fabianski and dropped into the far corner of the net. It was a freakish effort. But perhaps Arsenal were expectant themselves tonight. They were expecting rather than earning the victory. The home side responded to the goal by cranking up their game. But while the energy and composure were there, the forthright attacking of Saturday was not. Meanwhile, at the other end, Hull had the lead and they set about adding to it. In the 23rd minute, Gallas was harshly adjudged to have fouled Peter Halmosi. Geovanni’s free-kick was whipped towards the top corner. Fortunately for Arsenal, Fabianski arched his back and palmed the ball over the bar. An excellent and important save but the danger was not over. Geovanni played the corner to Dawson on the edge of the area. His raking drive was turned in by Barmby and the far post but the England midfielder was clearly offside. Nonetheless, Arsenal were rattled and soon afterwards Kamil Zayette rose unmarked five yards out to nod the ball over the bar. On the half-hour, Arshavin’s low shot towards the far post was turned past his own keeper, and the post, by Anthony Gardner. Not that the former Spurs centre half knew much about it. Arsenal were now starting to interrogate the Hull defence at last. Gibbs and Vela began to get around the back on the left-hand side. But driven crosses were not falling to Arsenal feet tonight. Five minutes from the break, Walcott’s deflected cross did find Arshavin only for the flying Sam Ricketts to block. While the home fans were rightly concerned about their side as they went off, the half-time highlight reel showed the teams about level in chances created. But when Hull’s crucial effort had deflected into the goal, the important Arsenal opportunities had deflected wide.
2nd half : Still, Wenger’s men had not been good enough in the first 45 minutes but they showed more fortitude after the restart – and the chances flowed. Van Persie drifted a free-kick wide, Diaby nodded inches past the post and then Arshavin’s effort was blocked. From the corner, Van Persie’s header was nudged off the line by Dawson. The ball fell to Song eight yards out but the swivelling Cameroon midfielder trickled a shot just past the far post. The real Arsenal had finally arrived. Wenger kept up the pressure by putting on Bendtner and Nasri for Vela and Song. Midway through the half, Van Persie’s free-kick was fumbled around the post by Boaz Myhill. Then, with 19 minutes left, the Duthcman planted a header against the bar from Nasri's corner. By now Hull’s attack steady stream of first-half attacks had slowed to a trickle. Arsenal had to score and, in the 74th minute, they did. Bendtner tiptoed through the Hull defence on the right and his ball found Arshavin at the far post. No-one would have blamed the Russian for shooting but the 27-year-old is more clever than that. He spotted Van Persie in space to his right and squared the ball. The Dutchman slammed his 16th goal of the season into the roof of the net. The crowd now sensed a winner but, in fact, Arsenal were nearly caught cold. Geovanni nipped around Djourou and fired high into the sidenetting. However a tidal wave of attacks was carrying Arsenal forward. Van Persie volleyed straight at Myhill then the keeper dropped a regulation cross and Bendtner was unfortunate to see his goalbound shot bounce wide of Ricketts’ knee. Arsenal were asking questions of the Hull defence but they were getting answers. That was until Gallas forced home the winner with six minutes left. Nasri pumped a free-kick into the area, Djourou then Myhill touched the ball on and Gallas rose highest to force the ball home. The double deflection was crucial as that may have lead the assistant referee not to raise his flag. The Hull protests were long and loud. By that time, Gallas had performed an emotional celebration. Bendtner and Eboue nearly added a third. But it did not matter. Arsenal were through.
Full Time : Arsenal won. Arsenal 2, Hull City 1.
Goal Highlights : Nick Barmby (Hull City), 13th minute.
Van Persie (Arsenal), 74th minute.
William Gallas (Arsenal), 84th minute.

Arsenal 4-0 Blackburn Rovers, 14th March 2009.
1st half : The time was now and, for once, they would get a little help. Having gone goalless in the last three Premier League games at Emirates Stadium, you sort of suspected an early goal might come this afternoon. It took just 80 seconds. Bendtner showed excellent feet in midfield to send Walcott haring down the right-hand channel. The England winger cut the ball back into a ruck of players at the near post. Arshavin was prominent and was credited with the goal initially.However he ran off wagging his finger in denial, replays proved the final touch had come off the sliding Ooijer.It was the just the boost Arsenal required. As at the Stadio Olimpico, fortunate things were coming on the back of hard work and quality. They looked to profit immediately. Bendtner shot straight at Paul Robinson and then Arsenal had a shout for a penalty when Stephen Warnock barged over Walcott as he went through. It was all Arsenal with Bendtner the lynch-pin. But after El-Hadji Diouf was booked for a nasty looking challenge on Almunia, the visitors started to develop their game. And, in the 25th minute, Morten Gamst Pedersen climbed above Sagna to meet Djourou’s attempted clearance. His header forced Almunia into a desperate, backtracking tip over the bar. However Blackburn’s rally would be brief. Sagna’s swirling, curling cross was nodded across goal by Bendtner. Then, nine minutes before the break, Nasri planted a 25-yard free-kick against the bar. The ball was hacked clear by the Blackburn defence and Bendtner’s touch allowed Nasri to fire goalward from 12 yards. Robinson’s block was enough to turn the ball behind but it was hardly convincing. It was hard to think this Arsenal side had been scoreless at both ends for so long. While Wenger’s side were impish and inventive going forward they were hardly watertight in defence. Five minutes from half time an unmarked Aaron Mokoena swept the ball just over the bar from Pedersen’s corner. Blackburn pushed forward in the dying seconds but their attack this afternoon was more cudgel than rapier. The nearest they came to breaching the Arsenal defence came in injury time when Almunia had to rush out and deny Pedersen.
2nd half : The home side could have banished any such nervousness in the opening minutes of the second half if they had converted a couple of straightforward chances. First Bendtner fed Walcott but the midfielder, 20 on Monday, dragged his effort wide. He returned the favour for an even simpler chance seconds later but the Dane sidefooted wide. Before five minutes were up Robinson had saved well from Walcott and Denilson had seen a ferocious drive blocked by Ooijer. Arsenal were stoking up the heat on Blackburn with all the chances seemingly falling to Bendtner. He nodded over just before the hour, fired wide just after and then, most profligate of all, dallied when sent clear by Walcott allowing Robinson to save. Frustration was starting to simmer but Arshavin’s smashing strike relieved all the pressure. When he received the ball on the left in the 65th minute there was little on but he skipped past Danny Simpson on the byline and then, from the tightest of angles, lifted the ball over Robinson and into the far corner.This one was definitely his.Djourou nodded over from Nasri’s right-wing free-kick as Arsenal looked for a killer third. At the other end, Almunia clutched a low free-kick from Pedersen. The Spaniard’s handling has been immaculate since the turn of the year. Bendtner’s work was nearly done but, just before he was substituted in the 80th minute, the Dane ended a trademark Arsenal break by thumping a shot high over the bar. It had been a tough afternoon for the 21-year-old. He worked wonderfully hard for the cause but had missed a host of chances. Emirates was rightly generous in its support as he went off. With seven minutes left Wenger brought on Eboue for Nasri. It would turn out to be an influential move. The Ivorian touched home in the 88th minuteafter Arshavin’ shot was parried by Robinson. Then, in injury time, Vela was clipped by Martin Olsson and Eboue scored confidently from the spot.It was perhaps apt that Arsenal should end this game by converting a penalty. Reaching the last eight in Europe is season's one ambition achieved. If they can stay in the top four, that will be another. Arsenal’s season is ending on a high.
Full Time : Arsenal won. Arsenal 4, Blackburn Rovers 0.

Roma 1-0 Arsenal, 11th March 2009.
1st half : Roma were the better side in the first 20 minutes. They were crisp and persistent in their tackling. They closed down the Arsenal defenders and forced them into nervous mistakes. John-Arne Riise’s blocked shot was Roma’s first sight of goal. In the ninth minute they would score and it was a horrible goal for Arsenal to concede. Francesco Totti’s low cross in from the right bobbled between Toure and Gallas, through the legs of Rodrigo Taddei to Juan at the far post. If the Brazilian was surprised to get the ball it did not show. He kept his cool as the Arsenal defence scrambled back and slammed home from close range. It was the lead on the night and leveller in the tie. Roma players and fans celebrated accordingly. At the same time, the goal was a pin in the bubble of self-belief Arsenal had built up in their 17-game unbeaten run. Now they had to guard against deflation. Gallas did loop a header into Doni’s hands but the home side now saw their chance. In the 22nd minute Motta drove forward in the right-hand channel and forced a strong-handed block by Almunia at the near post. The Italian raced to the byline and scooped the ball back into the centre of the goal just before it crossed the line. It came out to Taddei, whose low cross-shot was tipped around the far post by Almunia. The keeper had recovered his ground with alacrity. Around the half-hour, Arsenal did start to find their feet. And they came closest to scoring when Gael Clichy swirling left-wing cross found Diaby’s head. The Frenchman’s effort had power but was directed straight at Doni, who gathered with relative ease. Van Persie nodded over and Eboue hacked horribly wide. Neither chance was ever going in but it was testament to the fact that Arsenal were on the offensive. However, a minute before the break, came a crucial moment. Gallas lost the ball venturing too far forward and Totti’s chip sent Motta sprinting clear on the right with Clichy in pursuit. The two defenders ended up a heap in the area and Roma seemed convinced it was a penalty. Referee Manuel Gonzalez waved play on. The Spanish official was given the benefit of the home fans’ opinion as he walked off Arsenal needed half-time. They had been second-best and wise words for Wenger were required.
2nd half : Although Roma started the second period quickly with substitute Julio Baptista nodding wide and Riise firing in a free-kick, the visitors were making matters more even. Toure’s drive was deflected wide and, from the corner, Bacary Sagna powered a header straight at Doni.Diaby and Eboue were inches away from providing defence-splitting passes to Van Persie and Bendtner respectively. But, at the other end, Totti was starting to do what Totti does. He found intelligent space just outside the area and went close with a couple of drives from distance – one flew wide of Almunia’s post, the other into his chest. The game was a real cup-tie now. There was little containment in midfield as both sides went for the crucial next goal. In the 64th minute, Nasri’s corner was punched clear to Diaby who weaved himself some space on the edge of the area and poked an effort just wide. However Arsenal could not maintain their momentum and, as a result, Wenger withdrew Eboue for Walcott 10 minutes later. It added pace and urgency to Arsenal but it was Roma who would forge the real tie-killing chance before the end. In the 79th minute, Taddei stormed down the right and Totti touched his low cross to the unmarked Baptista 10 yards out. All the sliding Brazilian had to do was guide the ball home but it hit the outside of his foot and flew wide. A massive let-off for Arsenal. Extra-time was now looming and so Wenger made another change – Eduardo for Bendtner. The Croatian was quickly involved and helped the visitors create a couple of decent chances just before the end of normal time.First Van Persie bobbled a deflected shot just wide from the edge of the box. The corner found Walcott on the left, his deep cross was nodded back into the six-yard box by Van Persie and Toure heaved a header over the bar from a few feet out. The Ivorian lay disappointed on the grass for a few seconds then sprang up, dusted himself down and raced back to his position. He had 30 more minutes of work to do. Extra-time is often a disappointment these days. By this point, both sides are all too aware of what they have to lose.
1st extra time : That seemed the mentality this evening. Roma had pressure in the first period of extra-time but the best chance came in the 100th minute when Denilson bustled through on the right of the area and Van Persie hoiked the Brazilian’s cross over the bar.
2nd extra time : Walcott tested Doni early in the second period but, in the 114th minute, it took a superbly timed challenge from Toure to dispossess Baptista as he bore down on goal. However the side could not be divided in three and an half hours of football. So the tie would be decided from 12 yards.
Penalty : Eduardo took the first for Arsenal and Doni saved low to his right. Pizarro then scored to give Roma the advantage. Van Persie’s coolly converted then Almunia saved easily from Mario Vucinic’s cheeky effort to level matters at 2-2. Walcott just managed to squirm his shot through Doni’s fingersand Baptista blasted a thunderbolt into the top of the net. Nasri’s effort was placed to the keeper’s left and Vincenzo Montella almost skipped his effort in to the corner for 3-3.It was now effectively sudden death. Denilson rattled his penalty straight down the middleand it was left to Totti to complete the first five apiece. He did so with aplomb. Toure took a long run upand then sidefooted home Aquilani response was impish and accurate – 5-5. Sagna opted for a short run and stroked the ball in the corner.Riise just squeezed his left-foot drive past Almunia’s outstretched left-hand - 6-6. Diaby scored with nonchalanceand it was Tonetto who fired over the bar. Wenger’s men had kept their nerve with an excellent set of penalties. It had been two well-matched sides in an incredibly tense tie but Arsenal were through.
Full Time : Arsenal won. (Arsenal 1-1 Roma on agg, Arsenal 7-6 Roma on penalties)
