Everton’s surprise victory at Manchester City tonight means that Manchester United are the Christmas Number One, with Arsenal second and Manchester City third. Chelsea will see Christmas in fourth place.
History tells us that Arsenal being second in the league at Christmas has served as a lucky omen.
In the 2001/2002 and 2003/2004 seasons, when Arsenal ended up lifting the Premier League trophy come May, Arsenal sat second in the league when the country were tucking into their Christmas turkeys and forcing down sprouts.
The only other two times Arsenal sat in second come Christmas in the last decade was in the 2000/2001 and 2004/2005 seasons, and in both of those campaigns Arsenal finish as Premier League runners-up.
So will Arsenal finish at least second this season?
Well this particular Arsenal supporter will be clutching to any straws he can find and will hope so.
And finally, let me take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
