We came up with a fantastic performance on Sunday to beat Man City and go up 2 points clear of Tottenham. It was a game we dominated and won in the midfield although we had to wait till the 87th minute to grab the winning goal.
We pressured them throughout the match and missed some chances in the first half. I felt that Kompany and Lescott had a terrific game for Man City as they dealt with wave after wave of Arsenal pressure with calmness and confidence. Van Persie and Walcott were a little quiet in the game but Rosicky and Arteta played very well and dominated the midfield.
Tottenham drew their match against some team on Saturday and then lost to Norwich in comical fashion on Monday so that means we are 2 points on them with a game in hand. Chelsea drew another match which means they are pretty much out of the Championship spots race. We have Wolves and Wigan next who sit last and second last in the table so we should back ourselves to win these games. Then we play Chelsea at home which is our toughest remaining match. Luckily for us, Chelsea have a nightmarish schedule ahead in with they will play Tottenham in F.A Cup semi-final and then Barcelona before and after Arsenal so they will be stretched pretty tight.
Provided things carry on as they are, we should end the season in 3rd position and make things easier for ourselves when it will come to pre-season just after the Euro’s.
