Reading vs. Arsenal: Grading the Gunners

The Arsenal players celebrate against Reading

After crashing out of the Capital One Cup against Bradford City, Arsenal were in urgent need of a boost, and this comfortable victory over Reading provided it.  The fixture list had been kind to Arsenal: after two defeats in their last three games, they found themselves up against the side who had just displaced QPR at the bottom of the Premier League table.  

It's easy to see how they've ended up there: as of Sunday night, no side has conceded more goals in the league this season.  Arsenal took full advantage of a vulnerable defence and restored a good deal of confidence.

The result takes Arsenal up into the fifth place, and incredibly, despite the gloom that surrounds the club, they now sit just two points behind third-place Chelsea.
