For a week which had a lot riding on it, it didn’t turn out too badly.
Sure, we went out of the Champions League – but we bowed out to the best team in the world whilst grabbing a point at one of the biggest Footballing fortresses in Europe.
I’m happy because all’s well that ends well – and our week ended very well.
But that’s not why I’m happy about our week. I’m happy because all’s well that ends well – and our week ended very well.
Saturday saw Chelsea’s nightmare at Villa park with two red cards and a silenced Mourinho, while Sunday brought the North London Derby, which was decided by a thunderous wondergoal from Tomas Rosicky.
Our defences were propped up by two world-class performances from Mertesacker and Koscielny, and some might say it was a very well “ground-out” victory. In any case, I discuss it all in my match report & player ratings of the derby.
Arsenal’s victory only confirmed what we already knew; that North London is Red. Yet, the three points themselves were also a massive boost.
The points mean that The Gunners now sit just four points behind league leaders Chelsea, with a visit to Stamford Bridge on the cards for the weekend. Not to mention, we also have a game in hand over Moruinho’s men.
With the top four all playing each other over the next few weeks, the title really could end up anywhere.
So, the way I see it – this title race is still very much on.
Of course, Liverpool, Chelsea and City are just as involved as we are, but with the top four all playing each other over the next few weeks, the title really could end up anywhere.
A win at Stamford Bridge this Saturday could serious turn the tables (excuse the pun) in our favour, and so with one hugely important week out the way, it seems that this one will be even more crucial.
I can see that being a recurring theme until the very last fixture of the season – especially now that we are well within our rights to challenge for and even win both the FA Cup and Premier League.
