The Gunners beat title-rivals Manchester City 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night to announce themselves as favourites to win the Premier League
If this was the defining match of the Premier League season so far, then it was the night when Arsenal announced themselves as favourites to win the title.
The roar of 60,000 supporters at the full-time whistle was one of joy, passion and – most importantly – belief.
Because it now truly feels like this is Arsenal’s season. It’s certainly their title to lose if we are to assume that at some point Leicester will fade away.
While the rest of the division’s big clubs are in varying degrees of turmoil, Arsenal are stable, together and brimming with confidence.
