Speaking post-Leicester, Arsene Wenger admitted that Spurs beating Manchester City early on Saturday has really set the cat amongst the pigeons in the league.
It was all going so well. Until facing West Ham, City had an 100% win record so far this season and were romping the league. However, a loss to the Hammers and now a 4-1 drubbing by none other than Spurs has seen the Sky Blues win precisely zero points out of the last six available.
“Knowing that Tottenham has beaten Manchester City today it makes the whole league tight,” Wenger said. “Two weeks ago you had Manchester City playing West Ham at home so you would expect that they would make the difference.”
A 1-1 draw away to Newcastle for Chelsea means that our London ‘rivals’ are still hovering dangerously (hilariously) close to the relegation zone.
Although Manchester United won their match, getting the three points in emphatic fashion was exactly what Arsenal needed to show they’re serious about winning the Premier League.
Now that we’ve started to click properly, it’s only a matter of time before we build on the Leicester win, which will come as a relief considering our uncertain start to the campaign.
