I didn't post after yesterday's Arsenal 3-0 victory at Cardiff City, a very tough team to beat at home (just ask the Manchester clubs). Arsenal completely dominated the first half, and should have had more than a 1-0 lead a halftime. The second half was more even, but Arsenal made Cardiff City pay on a couple of counterattacks. Local hero Aaron Ramsey starred (yet again) for the Gunners with two goals. Not only do the Gunners look to have (by far) the best midfield in the league, but the defense is also getting tougher and tougher to score against. Wojciech Szczesny had yet another excellent game in what is proving to be a break-out year for the young Polish net-minder.
Even better for the Gunners is that none of their rivals, excepting Chelsea, won this weekend. Consequently, Arsenal currently have a 4-point lead over Chelsea, with Man City a further two point in arrears. Speaking of Man City, how can a club averaging more than 3 goals per game have lost 4 of their first 13 matches? That's a remarkable stat.
