There's no need to discuss the main talking points in the match, there's time for that with Mr Stillman tomorrow, no, now is the time to sit back and enjoy the result.
We don't even need to take into account the implications on the title race or the three points we just won, because for the loyal fans of Arsenal Football Club, tonight is a night to simply bask in the glow of a long needed victory and a stunning performance over Chelsea for what feels like eternity.
There was a time when Chelsea couldn't win against us, but the arrival of Roman Abramovich put paid to that, and despite one or two (I can seriously only remember one) results over our fellow London rivals, we have been second best for the large part of five years. Embarrassed, out muscled and out played at every turn.
Add to that mix that we've struggled to beat Man Utd in that time, hell even Spurs have cobbled a couple of results together against us. In the Champions League, in the Premiership, in the cup competitions, we've been outed as big time bottlers time and again, and it hurt.
So tonight is extra sweet, 3-1 against Chelsea, who let's not forget are the reigning Champions, is a massive result, and the performance was immense. John Djourou (my man of the match) and Koscielny were dominant in the air, they kept Drogba quiet, the full backs worked incredibly hard as did Song, Wilshere and Walcott.
It's hard to put together a cohesive article together right now as a mixture of unbridled joy, illness and Jim Beam blend together to make a quite unique feeling.
So I'll leave you with the comments section for you to post about this incredible performance at a time when we needed it the most.
COME ON YOU GUNNERS!
