1) Arsenal CAN win playing good football
Arsene Wenger can be forgiven for feeling a little smug when he wakes up this morning and basks in this latest triumph – it turns out he’s right and Arsenal CAN win silverware playing good football! The Gunners were brilliant from start to finish against Villa, putting together all their typically slick passing moves and creating one chance after another. Of course, it was crucial that they scored the opener when they did, or it could have been one of those days when they once again dominated without getting the all-important finishing touch. Still, on this basis, with so many quality attacking players all ticking together so fluently, that never looked like happening in this game and may be less of a problem in general from now on.
