As long as Arsenal go north and conquer on Monday night then last night´s victory for Hull City over our top four rivals Liverpool will be a great result for everyone connected with the Gunners. It leaves us nine points ahead of Brendan Rodgers´ side with a much better goal difference and a game in hand and that just about seals it.
It will be nice not to have to look over our shoulders and not have to worry about a Champions League place in the last few games. That should allow us to play with freedom and ensure that Arsenal finish second for the first time in years.
You would also think that a strong finish in the Premier League would be the perfect preparation for a second successive FA cup final. Another trophy would make it a good season for the Gunners and give the fans, players and manager a good feeling about next season.
But next up are Hull City away and that is why last night´s result could be bad for us. After beating Swansea away in their last game Hull will be feeling confident and they are clearly hitting a run of form. Unfortunately these two wins have not made them safe and they will be scrapping for their lives so Arsenal face a tough test on Monday night.
Pass it though, and things are looking good.
