Now this is a happy sight to behold, lol. Although with better head-to-head records in the league with 16 wins for Arsenal and 10 for Chelsea, Arsenal had astonishingly lost all their previous five league games with this bitter-helluva-rival in recent times. The Gunners’ winning mentality had been questioned from time to time and me myself had to endure taunts from bloody Man Utd and Chelsea’s supporters (not that we have won against Man Utd this season anyway, lol).
Arsenal turned in an emphatic performance to thump Chelsea 3-1 with goals from Alex Song, Cesc Fabregas and Theo Walcott. The only consolation goal for Chelsea was from some keh-le-feh player from a set-piece. And Arsenal’s fans can boast that we, the Gunners extended Chelsea’s winless run in the league to 6 games since October, how nice.
After last night’s encounter, Arsenal are now placed second, two points behind Man Utd who have a game in hand. Well, there are still four months of fixtures to go and we definitely have more exciting matches to come in the future. Here’s to hoping Man Utd losing some points here and there at Birmingham, West Brom and Stoke. And oh, for Arsenal to carry this sweet victory momentum forward and maintain their consistency. Cheers! 😀
