As Arsenal finally returned home after four games on the road since the Premier League restart, their win against Norwich took them above Tottenham.
Admittedly, Arsenal have now played a game more than their north London rivals, but when you consider the fact that we have been an absolute pile of steaming dogs**t all season, it really makes you stop and think.
Weren’t they supposed to be miles ahead of us? Yet, here we are, playing what is possibly the worst football seen at the club in a generation, sitting above them once again.
Yes, yes, I know. I’m starting to sound like a Spurs fan, but that’s how bad we’ve been over the last few seasons – we were below Spurs.
I mean, come on, that’s pretty bad.
At least we know if we do somehow end up finishing above them we won’t be bringing out DVDs and celebration mugs. As Arsenal fans, we judge our club on bigger things. That we are even talking about this tells you how far we’ve fallen.
The win – our third in a row – came about thanks to goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored his 50th and 51st Premier League goals in 79 games, Granit Xhaka, with his first of the season, and Cedric Soares, who returned from injury and was actually a new signing.
In short, Arsenal dominated against a Norwich side who seemed to have little in them for the most of the game.
After two defeats, three wins in a row should now provide the massive boost of confidence needed as they head into their next run of fixtures.
Whatever Mikel Arteta is doing behind the scenes is slowly starting to bear fruit.
To find out if that turns out to be bitter or sweet, we will have to keep tuning in.
At least we want to again, and that speaks volumes.
