The result against Chelsea last night was most definitely something worth celebrating, I mean a victory over the current Champions, double winners, local rivals who have had our number over recent seasons doesn't come along everyday, but games come thick and fast in the Christmas period, and now is not the time to relax.
A little under 48 hours after the mighty Gunners beat Chelsea, Arsenal will face off against Wigan Athletic at the DW stadium, and this now becomes our most important fixture of the season so far.
History has proved that it takes more than just showing up for Arsenal to win a game, it takes commitment and passion and hard work. Indeed a two goal cushion in the same fixture last year wasn't even enough to cover up our complacency and we went away on the back of an embarrassing 3-2 reverse.
I think it was Arseblogger who was only this morning discussing the need to play each and every game with the same work rate and desire as we did last night, every game needs to be treated as though it were that Chelsea match.
After the match last night, Johan Djourou said 'No-one can stop us when we play like this' ..... well here's an idea, let's play like this all the time. Then nobody will stop us and we'll win stuff. Simple really.
Of course it won't always come off, you can't win 'em all, but if we treat every team as though they pose the same threats as Chelsea do, then we'll stand a much better chance of winning the title for the first time since 2004.
Aside from Tottenham away, we have already played the most tricky games on the road, we don't have to play Chelsea again, and we've faced both Man Utd and Man City away, we have a pretty nice run in, so being only 5 points off the lead going into the new year would be pretty good in truth.
I think we should expect both United and City to pick up maximum points tonight, so another win is vital. Let's keep up this high pressure high tempo stance and go for the jugular, time to banish another ghost.
