While there was some good news for Arsenal fans this weekend in the Premier League, as Man United and Liverpool provided the draw that we wanted as well as a cracking game and Everton gave us a late christmas present by hammering Man City, it was not all good for the Gunners.
We should be happy about our clean sheet and four goals away to Swansea City, and I am, but we could have done without Chelsea winning with ease despite not having Diego Costa. It was ominously impressive from Antonio Conte’s team and I am concerned that Arsene Wenger and the lads will be disheartened by their seemingly relentless form.
Which is why I reckon that Arsenal should switch our attention to Tottenham. Not to give up on the title, though, but to give us more chance because if the last 20 years have taught us anything it is that no matter how good the spuds are or how bad we may be, the end of the season table will see us above our north London rivals.
If you do not believe me just take a look at the end of last season. I hate to say this but Tottenham are looking very good indeed right now, so finishing above them will be no easy task, but it is one that us fans and everybody at the club should feel confident in achieving.
Focus on that and forget about Chelsea for the moment shall we?
