Five points clear of Manchester United. Eleven clear of Arsenal. Miles ahead of Liverpool. To quote original gangsta turned family film guru Ice Cube: "... today was a good day."
That's nine points out of possible nine against our traditional top-four rivals -- quite a change from last season where we grabbed just one out of the opening nine on offer. And whatever may be said about today's result, pseudo goal or no, Arsenal were dismissed by a stronger -- physically and mentally -- deeper, more disciplined and complete team.
A win next week at Manchester City would be the icing on this cake of a run. Up the Blues!
