If there was one message that rose above all the others after the engaging and edgy Premier League encounter between Tottenham Hotspurs and Chelsea at Wembley, it was that despite all the doomsayers pronouncements about disharmony and dejection at Stamford Bridge, the rest of the teams in the league would have to work desperately hard to take the trophy off Chelsea's hands.
Well, well, well. Has that made things interesting? I mean, considering Jose is putting his eggs pretty much in the basket labelled Europa League, United's win at Old Trafford has to go down as a bit of a shock...
Each week makes it look more likely that the top six will end in their current shape meaning doom and gloom for Arsene. At the bottom, it feels like Swansea and Hull City will play their own version of pass the parcel with that remaining relegation spot. It is too close to call, as ever.
