Well, yesterday wasn't as bad as feared - City won, fairly easily, but everyone's favorite title contender Leicester City dropped points to the worst team in the league, drawing 1-1, giving them a single point to send them top for the time being. If Arsenal take maximum points, then, they'll jump from their current third place position take top spot by two points, and a draw will see them go top, level on points with a +3 goal difference over Leicester.
Arsene challenged his team to prove they are title contenders at Stoke this weekend; I think we'd all like to see that. I don't need to list for you all the times Arsenal have had a big thing within their grasp and let it go; here's hoping today starts to kill that narrative as surely as the last two seasons have killed the "Arsenal can't beat big teams" narrative.
