Surprising Bolton crushed Arsenal hopes

Bolton defeated Arsenal 2-1 and frustrated the Gunners' dreams of a title for this season. Wenger's squad completed their third game without a victory, and now they have no chance to reach leaders Manchester United.

Tamir Cohen scored a dramatic goal in the last minutes of the match, and that was the end of the story for Arsenal this season. Chelsea's win over West Ham helped Ancelotti's team reach the second place of the table.

It's fair to mention that the result could have been even more tragic for Arsenal, since Bolton's striker Kevin Davies missed a penalty shoot.

"I am the one to blame" said Wenger after the game. "Our team didn't have the experience to react at the most important moments, and that's entirely my fault."
