I love what I've seen so far from the Everton and Pompey matches, but Wenger's cubs have flattered to deceive for a long time. Show me solid performances in Manchester the next two matches and I'm convinced.
It's not so much the goals they scored as the way they looked doing it. I've been watching Arsenal my whole life and not since the Invincibles have they shown this kind of killer instinct. As they say, you create your own luck. I, too, think the next two matches will be telling. But to say Celtic is pedestrian is harsh...they would easily be a top 10 side in the Prem.
