Arsenal on top

Arsenal is back on top of the Premier League, two points clear of Manchester City and Chelsea, after the Londoners today defeated Manchester City 0-1 in Manchester on a goal by the always-good Branslav Ivanovic.
Manchester City could not continue its goal machine in what was in some ways an unlucky match where neither David Silva or Yaya Toure had a particularly good day. On the other hand Chelsea played like a team that believes they can take the title. Their new player Nemanja Matic was excellent, and will surely add to the side's depth. They were very sure in defense where Ivanovic and Gary Cahill were outstanding in front of another outstanding goalkeeper in Peter Cech. Chelsea were always deadly in their counter-attack where they hit the post three times!
The three teams, Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea now have a small margin of six points down to Liverpool on fourth place, and it seems likely that the champion will be found among these three. But be sure it will be dramatic!
