I'm confused, Arsene, really confused

Apparently Arsenal have a game tomorrow night. Liverpool or something? Yes, it's a big game in the Premiership title race but, when I last looked, that has nothing to do with us. Sadly.

So, you'll forgive me fellow Addicts, for wondering what on earth Arsene Wenger was doing on Saturday with his team selection and substitutions - they made no sense at all!

The only silver lining of Andrey Arshavin's absence from the Champions League games is that he is fresh and impactful in domestic games. So you can imagine my surprise yesterday when he didn't start the biggest game of his short Arsenal career, with Robin van Persie starting on the left, a position he has rarely excelled in.

While my protestations after the Villareal match that Lukasz Fabianski is a top class keeper now need some review, I don't blame him entirely for Saturday's defeat. Arsenal win together and lose together and the truth is that Wenger tinkered and shuffled his pack too much for reasons I cannot explain...

Even after gifting the Ch*vs a goal, we had enough ability in the squad to cause more problems for their defence - a defence that has conceded all number of goals in recent matches. But without Alex Song to support in defence, Cesc Fabregas didn't get the licence to roam and dictate the game in the way he can.

Abou Diaby gave one of his worst performances and why he wasn't wthdrawn, I have no idea. Manu Adebayor was poor, but in his defence, he had little to work with, little service and little support when he did get the ball.

The saddest thing about losing to a bunch of Ch*vs is that they were there for the taking.

The right team, with Arshavin on the left, Song replacing Diaby and not withdrawing two forwards (albeit one of them injured) when the game was still there to be won, is the most upsetting aspect of a semi final defeat.

Wenger talked afterwards about tiredness, but he could have sacrificed half the team or more tomorrow when we travel to Anfield.

Win lose or draw, it really doesn't matter in the Premier League now. Fourth is all but secured.

Now we have three games of our season remaining - two of them against Manchester United. More shuffling where it isn't needed and all the progress we have made over the last few months will have been for nothing.
