Nice Result!

City put on another fine performance at home, and took all three points from the EPL leaders, Arsenal.  As was pointed out to me after the match, one of the best things about the performance was that City scored within 5 minutes of each of the Arsenal goals, which is a fine fighting spirit.  The announcers made much of how tired Arsenal looked, but they had several players who did not play on Wednesday, so there seems to be no excuse for it.

Arsenal did play some good attacking football, and it seems that Pantilimon could have done better on the first goal.

We are almost half way through the EPL season, and 5 teams are within 5 points of the top!  Seven teams are within 10 points.  Amazing!

We'll wish Arsenal much better luck next week as they play Chelsea and we're glad to see the right team the first leg of the Maggie McGarry's Derby!
