I can sing it now... We are top of the league, say we are top of the league! Man, that felt good!
Although Monkey boy, Bale scored a free kick - against a wall which looked as if Titus Bramble organised it - after 16 minutes. Arsenal kept plugging away, the highlight being Diaby hitting the bar from a tight angle but on another day, he would of scored. It stayed goalless until the 65th minute when Adebayor took advantage of Paul Robinsons' 11th...(or is it 12th?) blunder of the season by flicking on a free header into the empty net.
The game went on and it really seemed that the Gunners were going to win it and in the 81st minute, Rosicky laid it off to Fabregas, to hit a screamer from 25 yards into the top left hand corner of the net. Although, England's number 2 (Could still drop if things don't change) got a touch on it, he could only help it on into the goal. It was one of those goals where once he hit it, you knew it was in!
For the last 10 minutes of the game, it was all Arsenal - well, apart from the desperate HOOFS into the box which Almunia and his rock-like defence had all day. There was however a chance for Spurs to get back into the game when Darren 'The Gooner' Bent was put through with a one-on-one with Almunia. Judging by his effort, which has to be featured on Soccer AM this weekend as a 'Taxi!', proved that he is Gooner. I mean, my great grandma could of scored that - And she's dead... Yes, it was that bad!
Then things got EVEN better when Denilson played the ball up to Adebayor to flick it up for himself and volley it past Robinson and make it 3 - 1 to the Arsenal. I hate to say it but it was like 'The Dog'ba's goal at Everton last season - Unstoppable!
Then Denilson had the chance to make it 4 but maybe a lack in confidence, made him put it strait at the keeper. Seconds later, referee Mark Clattenburg - who had a good game - blew his whistle and confirmed that Arsenal went top of the league, but more importantly, beat the Scum - with a far from First Team squad!
