Oh to be an Arsenal supporter right now!
Experiencing easily the brightest patches of play so far this tumultuous season, the Gunners cruised into Goodison Park to claim three much-needed points against Everton.
And that is saying something, considering Everton hadn’t lost since the beginning of January, which only came to an end last Tuesday during the Merseyside derby. Along the way the Toffees took out Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur and David Moyes’ men were looking to ruin Arsenal’s scintillating run of form.
But a towering Thomas Vermaelen header in the eighth minute gave Arsene Wenger’s squad the full share of the spoils, and ultimately leapfrogged their London rivals in the standings at the end of the day.
Arsenal have no time to relish their jump in the table though, as another crucial game against Aston Villa looms around the corner. Saturday’s match at the Emirates will see the Gunners defend a 6 game winning streak and try to distance themselves from Spurs and Chelsea.
Let’s take a look at who Wenger should roll out to start the match against the Villans.
