Arsenal are still capable of playing the most inspiring football in the Barclays Premiership, but their lack of a plan B has been the Achilles heel that has seen them founder in Europe. Chelsea, by contrast, sometimes look as though they do not know their art from their elbow and can grind out results as effectively as they can create works of beauty. Where Arsenal aspire to poetry in motion, Chelsea could be Pam Ayres on a morphine drip and still win.
Something of a backhanded compliment, but who cares. We. Are. Top of the league. Say we are top of the league!
