Well, well, well, that was a walk in the park that almost resulted in a mugging.

Good start, even got a penalty awarded after seven minutes when Alexis is brought down by Traore, what a mug he's learnt nothing since he left Arsenal. I thought there was an unwritten rule that the player fouled doesn't take the penalty, but Alexis refused to give the nominated player, Cazorla, the ball and took it himself.

Arsenal Finally Find The Winning Combination.

Arsenal played what was probably the most complete ninety minutes of football this season in the EPL, beating Newcastle 4-1. But winning combination I hear you say with fingers hovering over the keyboard at the ready to disagree – how can that be? Irrespective of what a good job Debuchy did on the day or just how much more comfortable Bellerin now looks after a run of games the defense was clearly make shift at best.

4-1 to The Arsenal. Talking Points.

- CB's. In a week when Arsene spoke about The Transfer Market, CB's and Koscielny, up pops Debuchy in the middle to join another RB , Chambers, to stake a claim as a multi-functional defender. Didn't see this one coming, but memories of very accomplished performances at the heart of the defence by Bac sprung to mind.

Arsenal's best league performance of this season? I don't think there's any doubt about that. And so very Arsenal that it should come straight after our worst. Welcome to Arsenal!

Goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny (hip) and striker Yaya Sanogo (hamstring) will be assessed, but forward Olivier Giroud could come back in having been ineligible for the midweek Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund, along with fit-again defender Laurent Koscielny.

The sight of Olivier Giroud paying crumpled on the turf, his face wrinkled with pain, fingers snapping in anguish, is not uncommon. Despite his fits of pained pique, Giroud is generally a physically robust player, rarely injured and his one sustained injury during his Arsenal career has seen a miraculously early recovery.

How nice it is to go into a long week off the back of a good win. I say a long week because we don't play the Mugsmashers until Sunday, which is probably not a bad thing really.

Although that's unlikely to make any difference to the availability of Laurent Koscielny or Aaron Ramsey, we might have Mikel Arteta back, and with concerns over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's groin we need as much time as possible to get players fit and healthy.

As the game drew to a close last night, and Fraser Forster had just pulled off a fantastic save from Olivier Giroud, I'll admit I thought the goal was never going to come. I was watching the HFB's header loop into the top corner, ready to get out of my chair to celebrate (a tricky move with a laptop on your lap), and the big keeper stuck out a hand to keep the ball out.
