The Daily Mirror - Arsenal can't afford to lose Fabregas - not even for £40million

This was most certainly not a "demonstration of football" to borrow the phrase used by Arsene Wenger to belittle Chelsea's muscular victory against his team.

The Times - Abou Diaby heads Arsenal back into title race

In this victory the Frenchman has his evidence.
