I watched last Saturday's win against Chelsea from my sick bed in India, having succumbed to a severe case of Delhi belly, but the doctor could not have prescribed a better course of treatment, because although sweat was oozing out of every pore (not to mention other secretions), by the time RvP slammed home the fifth, I was bouncing around my room.
But the performance that followed in midweek was tired, to say the least, and without sounding like too much of a doomsayer, I think one or two players might be in danger of resting on their laurels after the victory at the Bridge.
With no club games for the next fortnight, any talk of resting players should be put aside and in an effort to keep us in the hunt for that sacred Champions League qualifying slot, Arsene Wenger will surely pick the strongest possible starting 11 that we have available.
It's Friday and you're probably at work, so without wittering on too much about who is in form and who should be taken to the knackers yard, here's who I'd like to see starting tomorrow's game against West Brom to secure all three points.
Jenkinson Vermaelen Koscielny Santos
Song Arteta Ramsey
Walcott RvP Gervinho
The more observant among you will realise that my starting 11 is, Jenkinson and Vermaelen aside, the same that put the Chavs to the sword last week. But why change a team that is capable of doing that?!
