Chelsea cruise past Arsenal
Chelsea extend its lead on the top of the ladder to five points after a 3-nil win over London rivals Arsenal.
That was the Gunners first loss at home this season and also for the first time this season the Gunners were kept goalless in front of their own supporters.
The Gunners slipped to fourth place on the ladder with Tottenham Hotspurs taking their place in third position following a one-all draw at Villa Park.
Defending champions Manchester United maintained second place after overcoming Portsmouth 4-1 at Fratton Park.
In the Merseyside derby, Liverpool got the bragging rights after downing Everton 2-nil at Goodison Park.
Also in another derby in the Midlands, Birmingham got the better of Wolverhampton Wanderers after an early goal was enough to take all three points.
Elsewhere Manchester City had their seventh draw in a row when they were held one-all at home by Hull City. Before this chain of draws started, Manchester City had not drawn a match in the league.
So this week I will take a look at the draws ladder as see how other teams trail Manchester City as they make draws their specialty:
So Aston Villa, West Ham and Stoke City are a close second to Man City with five draws each and Chelsea remains the only team yet to draw a match.
I was not surprised by the result in the Arsenal match but maybe a bit surprised by a 3-0 win but it could have been more than that. I can see Arsenal beating the smaller teams coming to the Emirates but Arsenal will struggle against the decent sides.
Colin, its interesting to see that the next league match for Arsenal will be against Stoke at home but after that the next match is away to Liverpool. That could be a very interesting match and I think Arsenal could win that one.
