It’s not often that Arsenal have a good weekend with not just their results but also with other results going their way. Everton away is not an easy match, though you might argue that this fixture has gone Arsenal’s way in the recent past. But this year to win at Goodison Park will be considered a good result and Arsenal did just that with a goal from Sagna of all the people and one from our Captain. So that was 3 points in the kitty.
Manchester United trailed by 2 goals against Villa and if only Villa could only hold on to their nerves and the lead, we would have been in an even comfortable position with respect to our opposition. So a Utd draw over the weekend meant, we were second in the table after a long time. The biggest surprise result came from Stamford Bridge where the blues went down to Sunderland by 3 goals. So with this result Arsenal are just 2 points behind Chelsea and a win in the weekend’s derby will take us to the top of the league atleast for some time.
Can’t wait for the the Spuds match!!!
