There's nothing haters can say about Arsenal right now. The Gunners continue to sit at the top of the English Premier League table and they made quite the statement on Sunday in the North London Derby.
Playing at the Tottenhan Hotspur Stadium for this one, Arsenal FC didn't let the road crowd intimidate them one bit, posting a convincing 2-0 victory over Harry Kane and Co. Can AFC go on to win it all? We think they've got an incredible chance.

In that Derby victory, Arsenal got on the board first after Bukayo Saka smashed a ball at Hugo Lloris, and the ball somehow found the back of the net. Then in the second half, skipper Martin Odegaard made things 2-0 with a rocket of a shot.
This was a massive three points for Arsenal becaue not only did they take down a Top 6 club, but Manchester City also dropped points over the weekend at Old Trafford against Manchester United.
In that loss for City, they had a 1-0 lead, but Bruno Fernandes tied things up and then Marcus Rashford scored the game winner late. It was a rough loss for MCFC, but it obviously was big for Arsenal.
As things stand, Arsenal is in first place with its 47 points, while City is in second with 39 points. Manchester United and Newcastle both have 38 points. There's still plenty of season left, but the Gunners are in fantastic shape to bring home the trophy.
The fans are believing this will be the year where the drought ends. Only time will tell if that ends up happening or not.
