So that’s 23 games unbeaten stretching back into last season with Fabregas shovelling in ten goals so far this season. I think that although a draw was a fair result, it is also true that only one team ever looked like winning the game and that was Arsenal.
Onto Sheffield United in the League Cup midweek, and I expect an even younger side to face the Blades than faced Newcastle in the third round. Still a team of say, Fabianski, Hoyte, Nordtveit, Song, Traore, Merida, Denilson, Diarra, Bendtner, Lansbury should be enough to see off a struggling United side.
Then, the big one. Arsenal vs the Shit. Ooooh.
