Premier League – Tottenham draw but Man City, Chelsea and Leicester City all win.
Bit of a mixed bag yesterday in terms of results and how they impact on Arsenal. Chelsea and Leicester City wins pushed them above Arsenal in the standings and of course, City winning increased the gap between them and us to four points.
Tottenham dropping two points is a bonus, Arsenal now sits three points above them with a game in hand.
If Man Utd was to lose today against Liverpool then that would be another huge boost for Arsenal.
Chelsea scraped by Newcastle United and show no signs of slowing down just yet, if anything they are now learning to win under Frank Lampard.
The Foxes came from behind to beat Burnley and once they get the momentum going it is hard to stop them. They will be in the race for a top-four spot for the long run.
Man City was comfortable 2-0 winners at Crystal Palace to get back to winning ways in the league. Pep Guardiola’s men cannot be counted out of the title race that is for sure.
Everton beat West Ham 2-0 but are probably already too far behind to get back in top-four contention. But if they put a winning run together who knows.
Wolves and Southampton drew 1-1 and a season of mid-table mediocrity looks on the cards for Wolves. Southampton looks a bit like relegation fodder and they will be struggling this season.
Bournemouth and Norwich City fans endured a goalless draw but I am sure the Canaries will be pleased with a point.
Finally, Aston Villa continues to impress grabbing a late winner against unlucky Brighton.
So, in conclusion, results could have been better for Arsenal but Spurs dropping points is huge. A win over Sheff Utd tomorrow night and that opens up a six-point gap to our North London rivals. Arsenal must take advantage of the rare opportunities that come their way and tomorrow is a huge opportunity to put a significant gap between themselves and Spurs.
