Men against boys at the Emirates, and this time Arsenal were the men. The gulf in class between the two teams was enormous.
Arsenal’s goals were scored by Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Abou Diaby. Jeremain Lens bagged a late consolation for the visitors.
Fabregas in particular was immense. Is there a better 22-year-old player in the world? No, definitely not. With the Spaniard and Robin van Persie now established as the team’s two senior creative players, I really think this time Wenger’s side can challenge for serious silverware this season. The title-race is between Chelsea, Man Utd and Arsenal, no one else.
