The results were the same this weekend for Arsenal and Man City but the circumstances were very different. After the way they lucked their way to all three points against Swansea, Man City should start marketing their own brand of jam.
A wrongly disallowed goal and a horrible deflection were really harsh on the Welsh club but at the end of the day it has left Arsenal facing a crucial clash with Manuel Pellegrini and his players next week, with the winner getting one over on their main Premier League rival.
I am not disrespecting Leicester City here and I have been very impressed with the Foxes and do not expect them to collapse, just to not be able to maintain this level over the course of the season. And Man United are being found out big time so in my opinion there are two clubs in the EPL race.
So the coming week is a very important one for Arsenal and City but I think it will be a happier one in north London. For one thing we are a point better off and so a draw will keep us ahead of them. For another, and this is a big one, the Gunners have been playing better than our rivals.
Both clubs might have big players back next week in the shape of Alexis Sanchez and Sergio Aguero but I think City will be hoping for this more than us. With a week to rest, Arsene Wenger will be perfectly happy to field the same starting XI for a third game in a row, and why not?
Man City, on the other hand, will be coming south with real concern about facing us and that is the key. So enjoy the week Gooners, especially if Chelsea stop Leicester winning and leave us in top spot.
