The glory days are coming back. Watch all 5 goals on video

By 1970’s Gooner

Awesome, fantastic, at a canter, untouchable. These are some of the eulogies that can be appropriately used to describe the performance against Derby at the Emirates.

The boys won without even breaking sweat. They were professional in their approach, played at almost the same tempo till the end and trounced Derby for five.

We are sitting on top of the League with Manchester City 3 points behind (but with a game more) followed by Liverpool with 4 points behind.

Liverpool failed to beat Birmingham who were aided greatly in their cause by ex Gunner Larson (who has improved a lot), ex Arsenal trialist Wilson Palacios,who was recommended to Steve Bruce by Wenger only last August and by Johan Djourou who was at the heart of Birmingham’s defence!

And it doesn’t stop there. Mourinholess Chelsea travel to Manchester United tomorrow. A draw will be ideal of course but frankly any result would do for us.

The strength in depth of this squad is amazing. Diaby playing out of position again as a left winger scored a stunner from outside the area, Adebayor got his first hat trick for the club and Fabregas got his customary goal with a stinker from outside the area.
