Everybody thought that the Gunners would fall further behind their rivals in the Premier League but in the end it turned out to be a great day as they beat Tottenham Hotspur 5-2 and a few results went our way.
Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski, Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla and Per Mertesacker put an end to all the bad media attention that we have been receiving and put us firmly back on track to finish in the top four come the end of the season.
Emmanuel Adebayor got what he deserved and was sent off in the game for a poor challenge on Cazorla that would have been very nasty if he had fully connescted withe the Spaniard.
The brilliant football, the good movement, old stars getting shown up and the great score-line wasn’t the only good news that we had by the end of the day, as Chelsea and Manchester United failed to pick up anything from their respective games and finished the weekend falling behind the leaders and back into the clutches of the Gunners.
Yes we are still way off the lead, but considering we have had a poor start to the season, being only five points behind Chelsea and Eight points behind Manchester United is not a bad way to end a weekend is it?
Manchester City still lead the way in the League, but they are only nine points ahead of us and not playing great either, so if we can build on this performance and pull out some more weekends like this one and maybe close the gap between us and the top three a little more, then there is an outside chance that we could challenge for the title come the end of the season.
