That, as they say, is more like it. After a little bit of a rough couple weeks, Arsenal got back on the winning side of the ledger today, and also looked pretty good doing it.

Leicester did Arsenal a favor by beating Chelsea; with that result, Arsenal are in fifth but only by goal difference. Auba’s back on top of the goalscoring chart, Arsenal are within touching distance of the top four; it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Or something.
