Photos: Wolves 1-4 Arsenal, Premier League (Arsenal CAN win the league)

Another good day to have Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie in your fantasy team (and on current form, why wouldn’t you?). Wolves are a mediocre side at best, but a 4-1 win at Molineux is not to be sniffed at. The hosts were a little unlucky with the opening two goals – although no one would begrudge Eduardo a little good fortune – but Arsenal were blatantly the better team.

Anyone who doubts the title credentials of Wenger’s men should reconsider – these Gunners CAN win the league this season, although only if Fabregas and RvP stay fit for at least 80% of the campaign. I’d still have them as third favourites, behind Chelsea and Man Utd, but not by much. The bookies [Paddy Power in this case] see it the same way:

Chelsea: 11/10

Man Utd: 9/4

Arsenal: 10/3

Liverpool: 20/1

Man City: 22/1

100/1 bar

Liverpool out to 20/1 already! If they beat Birmingham today, and Rafa does some good business in January (David Villa?), that might turn into a half-decent each-way bet. Okay, a tad optimistic.

Anyway, I digress. Photo gallery of the game at Molineux below:
