Fantastic game. Although it was very tight early on (multitude of chances in the 1st half), the 2nd goal thankfully decided the game.
Denilson was excellent in the midfield, his best game for Arsenal thus far. Fabregas started to play a little better, grabbing an assist, although still a few too many duff passes for my liking. Bendtner will get criticism for missing a number of chances, but (and this is sympathy from the limited water-carrier that I am coming through) he certainly gave Vidic/Ferdinand a lot of problems, and was a benefit to the team.
Arsenal well worth the win, but it was a "1st goal wins" kind of game.
