Not only did Arsenal win this match to put the Gunners back above last week’s tormentors Watford into fifth place and only outside the top four on goal difference, it was done in an emphatic style, but does that mean that Arsenal are now properly back on track and ready to mount a challenge for the Premier League title?
The fact that this win came away from home where our record so far this season has been pretty poor is a big thing, in my opinion. If we can now carry on from this and start picking up plenty of points on the road to add to the very good home record then an assault on the league summit is possible.
Arsenal also answered some questions today about the character in the squad that he been questioned. A mentally weak bunch could well have crumbled after dominating and then going behind to the opponents only effort on target, especially when their keeper seems to be having the game of his life.
We didn’t though. We kept going and playing some great stuff that got the just desserts in the end. Ozil showed he will still perform for Arsenal whatever the situation with his contract and Ramsey and Alexis seem to be over the World Cup heartbreak, so are Arsenal now set for a title push?
