When Arsenal signed Mohamed Elneny from Swiss club Basel in January, many fans of the north London club were left feeling unfulfilled. After all, the 23-year-old Egyptian international is not considered a "world class" player, nor is he a household name in the soccer world. The Gunners reportedly only paid somewhere in the range of £5-£7 million for the defensive midfielder, hardly an earth-shattering transfer.

The biggest winner in the north London derby was Leicester City, seeing that both of their biggest title rivals dropped five out of a possible six points in a week when even they dropped points. While there are both positives and negatives for both sides to take from one of the more enthralling derbies in recent memory, both can see that maybe their best isn't quite good enough this season.

Somehow, dear chums, we find ourselves in February, the Aston Villa of months. Not awful, for there is the promise of spring in the air with March just around the corner, but still somehow disappointing and depressing. How nice then, of Aston Villa to turn up, knock on the housemaster's door, pull their pants down and hand the plimsoll to Woolwich for a vigorous thrashing before limping awkwardly off to matron for some ointment.

Today is similar. There are just 6 points between us, although we do have a game in hand, but after yesterday's results we've got a chance to push back towards the top of the table and involve ourselves well and truly in the title race.
