Arsenal's Flames and firepower

The Gunners supposed need for more firepower was pooh-poohed by Walcott and Giroud, who both scored without playing a full 90 minutes against Leicester.

Let's make no mistake: Leicester are, or were, an in-form team. I was particularly impressed with the way Arsenal snuffed out Mahrez; every time the Algerian got the ball, there were four Arsenal shirts around him.

Additionally, I was impressed with Walcott's one-on-one goal with his left foot: it was a well-placed finish.

Obviously, the plaudits will notice Alexis Sanchez's hat-trick. It looks like the Chilean is hitting top form again.

The only fly in the ointment is Mathieu 'Flames' Flamini's injury. What bad luck for the Frenchman after a scintillating display at Spurs.

With Man City losing at White Hart Lane, Man Utd are table toppers and they're up next. That game will tell us a lot about Arsenal's real title credentials.
