In theory, Arsenal are still in the title race following a 6-2 win at Derby Country in Monday’s only Premiership game.
The Gunners went ahead with a goal from Bendtner in the 25th minute, but watched how McEveley surprisingly levelled the score six minutes later.
Robin van Persie put Arsenal back in the lead with about five minutes to go in the first half though, and Adebayor set the score to 1-3 on the hour mark.
Earnshaw got one back for Derby in the 77th minute and the home side suddenly had a much better perspective, but Theo Walcott made sure to end that confidence right away by scoring Arsenal’s fourth of the night.
And after another two minutes, it was Adebayor to put a fifth past Derby goalkeeper Carroll.
And just before full time, the strong Adebayor added another to his tally. Having scored three goals in one half, the forward got to take home the ball.
Thanks to this win, Arsenal still have a small chance to win this year’s Premiership trophy. The Londoners are in third place, at four points from Manchester United and Chelsea.
