I have to admit, Arsenal’s performance impressed me tonight.
Arsene Wenger’s men saw-off the Premier League’s bottom side Portsmouth 4-1 to move to within four points of leaders Chelsea with a game in hand.
The reason why I was so impressed with tonight’s result was down to the fact that they comfortably beat a side who beat Liverpool 2-0 just two weeks ago and they did it without a few key men, ie, Cesc Fabregas. The performance of Aaron Ramsey was superb. The young Welsh midfielder looked so comfortable with the ball at his feet and his goal was simply world class.
January is bound to see a few arrivals at the Emirates and I believe if Wenger brings the right men in, Arsenal look great value at 10/3 to win their first title in six years this time around. I must admit, a month ago I thought Chelsea looked unstoppable this season, however I am beginning to think Arsenal may push them all the way.
